Magma Orb is a spell that launches a projectile 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.

    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.

    increases the number of times a new projectile is created upon contact with the ground. The support gem adds +2 Chains, which results in an additional two projectiles. These projectiles do not readjust to aim toward enemies as other projectile skills with chain do. It is possible for projectiles created by separate chains to damage the same enemy, if positioned properly.

    and other modifiers to projectile speed affect both the maximum cast distance, the distance of each chain and the delay between each chain. Increasing projectile speed means the orb travels further both on initial cast and subsequent chains while also reducing the delay between chains. Reducing speed reduces travel distances and increases the time each orb is airborne.
