Flameblast is a channeling fire spell that builds up an explosion. Releasing or fully channeling the spell will create the explosion.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Stages: Flameblast deals more damage at each stage, starting from the second. This means it does base damage at the 1st stage, then 100% plus 110% at the second stage, and so on, resulting in 990% more Spell Damage modifier at the last stage, or 10.9x base damage.[1]
  • Cast speed: At base cast speed it takes 2 seconds to reach the maximum stage. Increasing the cast speed reduces the time to reach the next stage, similar to how IncinerateIncinerateSpell, Fire, Channelling, AoE

As you channel this spell longer, the flames spread wider close to you and spread longer directly in front of you. When you stop channelling you release a wave of fire damage over a wide and long area that will apply a powerful Ignite.Per 1% Quality:
    1% increased Fire Damage

    are now channelled skills.
  • Unlike other skills, which are used once and quickly finish, when you use a channelled skill, it doesn't finish until you release the relevant button/key. You continue performing the same skill.
  • You need to pay mana repeatedly to keep the skill going. The channelled skill's mana cost must be paid again to maintain it with a frequency determined by the cast time. If you can't pay, the skill will end, just as if you'd lifted the button.
  • Dying, being stunned, and other game mechanics that interrupt the use of skills will cause channelling to end as well.
  • Effects which trigger when you use a skill will only trigger when you initially start channelling - regardless of how long you maintain a channelled skill, it's still the same use of the skill. You need to stop channelling if you want to use it again.

1.0.4
  • Flameblast has been added to the game.
