Chance to Ignite is a support gem that grants supported skills that deal fire damage a chance to ignite the enemy. The normal rules for burning apply, linking this gem to a skill that deals no fire damage is pointless; unless the user is igniting enemies via cold damage skills with The Three DragonsThe Three Dragons

As the lightning stilled his heart,
But it was the flames upon his lover's face
That roused him to vengeance."

Skill functions and interactions

The Chance to Ignite an enemy given by this gem is independent of the chance to ignite an enemy as a result of a critical strike. For instance, if a supported skill has a 20% chance to score a critical strike, and 25% chance to ignite, the overall probability that an enemy will be ignited is:

1 - (( 1 - 0.20 ) * ( 1 - 0.25 )) = 1 - 0.6 = 40% chance to ignite

It is worth noting that as opposed to chance to critical strike, which is checked once for each cast of the skill, the chance to ignite is checked separately for each individual hit. For instance an explosion from Molten ShellMolten ShellSpell, AoE, Duration, Fire
