Incinerate is a fire spell, that launches a torrent of fire from a character's hand. The longer character repeatedly casts the spell from the same location, the larger and more damaging the flames become.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Incinerate gains more damage when cast continuously from one spot, up to a maximum of 150% more damage (rather than three separate 50% more damage modifiers). The next stage is reached after four casts. At each stage, the flames become visibly larger and will spread out in a small cone instead of always going in a straight line. The spell will revert to its first stage if the player stops casting for more than a fraction of a second, even if they do not move from the spot they are standing on.

    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
  • No longer affected by Spell Echo, as was intended in 2.0.0. Incinerate now only adds 50% more damage for each stage, down from 100% more damage. Incinerate's damage has been increased by 15% at level 1 and reduced by approximately 8% at level 20.

0.11.4
  • Incinerate now has an informational icon which displays what stage it is in when you continue to cast it.
0.11.3
  • Now progresses through the damage stages faster and does more damage at later stages.
    The mana cost has been reduced at higher skill levels.

    Damage values on these skills have been updated to reflect this.
