  • Zealot's Flame will trigger regardless of weapon used. However, when wielding a torch, you will gain access to the Zealot's Fire sequence skill as if you had cast Zealot's Flame from the skill bar. The two versions of the skill use separate cooldown timers, making it possible to use the sequence skill twice in quick succession.
  • The burning listed is the total amount inflicted over the duration, not the amount per pulse.
