Patch Changes
November 28, 2023
  • This trait no longer reduces the cooldown of torch skills. Increased burning stacks from 1 to 2.
August 08, 2017 Path of Fire pre-patch:
  • This trait now grants a flat 20% recharge reduction but no longer causes torch skills to remove conditions.
  • Instead, it causes torch skills to apply an additional stack of burning. (Does not affect phantasm attacks.)
September 29, 2015
  • Fixed an incorrect skill fact that displayed the recharge reduction as a percentage instead of a duration.
June 23, 2015 Specialization update:
  • The Pledge has been added to the game.
