Righteous Fire is a spell that applies a buff on the player, rapidly burning himself and nearby enemies. It also increases the player's spell damage.

Skill Functions and Interactions

Life Degeneration Effect: While this skill is active, you and surrounding enemies will take fire degeneration damage (damage over time). This damage can be mitigated with fire resistance for both you and surrounding enemies. Righteous Fire will damage energy shield and keep it from recharging while the skill is active, but it can still regenerate if you have life regeneration and the Zealot's Oath keystone. Keystones, passives, and item mods meant to avoid or block spell damage will not work on Righteous Fire's degeneration damage. Characters with only 1 life due to Chaos Inoculation cannot inflict damage with Righteous Fire's degeneration because Righteous Fire will stop instantly upon activation.

The effect can be ended prematurely by any effect which removes burning, such as flasks with the "dousing" suffix.

Spell Damage: Righteous Fire provides a large bonus to spell damage during its effect. Note that this is More damage, meaning it is a multiplier to overall damage.

Passives: The burning effect that damages both the player and enemies is not affected by x% increased Spell Damage. As of Patch 1.0.2 x% increased Burning Damage and x% increased Fire Damage no longer increases the self-inflicted damage, but does increase damage to monsters.

Righteous Fire can't damage Totems, but does damage the relics during Elreon's mission "Destroy the Relics."
