Fire Fire


  • The orb travels slowly (for a projectile) in the target's direction, hits the target (doing the indicated damage) and stops, then explodes 3 seconds later (doing the indicated damage again) in a small AoE sphere.
  • It can miss if the target or your character are moving/turning. In that case the orb will travel to the maximum range, stop, and explode after 3 sec.
  • Rate of fire is approximately 1 orb per second.
