A system has been added that will automatically add divination cards and other items to the item acquisition sections where appropriate. Entries added by this system will be shown as automatic in the item acquisition section.

Some pages will need to be updated to include upgraded_from_disabled=true if they are not eligible for the system.

Magma Orb is a spell that launches a projectile that bounces on a parabolic curve that explodes on impact dealing fire damage in an area of effect.

Skill functions and interactions

Magma Orb's projectile is launched through the air from the caster's location and lands where the caster is currently targeting (up to a maximum range). This causes an explosion dealing fire damage and also launches another ball on a pre-set arc in the same direction as the first projectile. The impact has a base radius of 14.

    increase the number of projectiles, and thus the area of effect. However, the explosions from Magma Orb's splashdown do not overlap, meaning that each time the orbs strike down at the same time, damage is dealt only once to any given enemy. Spread of the projectiles can be controlled by targeting closer to or further way from the caster.

These projectiles do not readjust to aim toward enemies as other projectile skills with chain do.

    and other modifiers to projectile speed affect both the maximum cast distance, the distance of each chain and the delay between each chain.
