Flameblast is a channeling fire spell that builds up an 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 IncinerateIncinerateProjectile, Spell, Fire, Channelling

  • Curses: The blast detonates ~0.5sec after releasing the key, giving the player enough time to cast a curse like FlammabilityFlammabilityCurse, Spell, AoE, Duration, Fire
    Radius: 22
    Mana Cost: (24 to 50)
    Cast Time: 0.50 sec
    Requires Level 24Curses all targets in an area, making them less resistant to fire damage and giving them a chance to be ignited by fire damage.Per 1% Quality:

    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.
2.1.0
  • Damage has been increased by around 20% at all levels.
2.0.0
  • Now grants 1% increased damage per 1% quality (quality no longer affects ignite chance).

  • Base Cast Speed has been increased from a cast time of 300ms to 200ms to compensate for no longer working with Spell Echo.

  • Reduced the damage of Flameblast by 20%.
1.2.0
  • We have reduced the critical strike chance from 6% to 5%. We have reduced the damage by 15% at all levels.
1.1.1
  • Fixed a problem where Flameblast was accidentally buffed heavily in 1.1.0. Based on feedback on the insane version, we then buffed the pre-1.1.0 version by 48% on purpose in this patch.
1.0.4
  • Flameblast has been added to the game.
