Righteous Fire is a spell that applies a buff on the player, rapidly burning themself and nearby enemies. It also increases the player's spell damage.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Life Degeneration Effect: While this skill is active, the player and surrounding enemies will take fire degeneration damage (damage over time). This damage can be mitigated with fire resistance for both the player and surrounding enemies. Righteous Fire will damage energy shield and keep it from recharging while the skill is active, but it can still regenerate if the player has life regeneration and the Zealot's Oath keystone or any other sources of energy shield regeneration.
  • Spell block and spell dodge: Keystones, passives, and item mods meant to avoid or block spell damage will not work on Righteous Fire's degeneration damage.
  • Elemental Reflect only reacts on hits. Because of this the RF degeneration does not trigger reflect.
  • Chaos Inoculation: Characters with only 1 life due to Chaos Inoculation cannot inflict damage with Righteous Fire's degeneration because Righteous Fire will stop instantly upon activation.
  • The effect can be ended prematurely by any effect which removes burning, such as flasks with the "dousing" suffix.
  • More Spell Damage Affix: Righteous Fire provides a large bonus to spell damage during its effect. Note that this is more damage stat, meaning it is a multiplier to overall damage.
  • Damage stats:
    • The following stats apply to the damage Righteous Fire deals to enemies: Fire damage, burning damage, damage over time, area damage and generic damage. These stats do not apply to the self-inflicted damage from Righteous Fire.
    • Increased and decreased spell damage however does not affected the degeneration damage in any way despite the Spell tag. It can be explained by the fact that the Rightous Fire spell only places the area degen debuff but does not maintain it. So spell related modifiers do no longer apply after casting [citation needed]. The stat "increased effect of aura you cast" does not apply either, due to RF being an area debuff rather than a aura.
  • Spell Totem: When linked with the support gem Spell Totem SupportSpell Totem SupportSupport, Totem, Duration

    , burning damage is based off of the totem's life/energy shield pool rather than the caster. Burning Damage is inflicted instead upon the totem as well. Spell totem also allows use of Swift Affliction and Efficacy Support, which are not supported when self-cast due to the lack of a duration tag.

Sustaining Righteous Fire

To sustain the degeneration damage Fire Resistance and Life Regeneration are needed. Depending on the player's resistance, less regeneration is needed to break even. The base formula is:

burnDegen = (life*burnLife + ES*BurnES) * (1 - fireRes) * (1 + dmgTaken)

where life, ES and fireRes is the characters maximum life, maximum energy shield and fire resistance. burnLife and burnES is the percent of life and energy shield that Righteous fire burns for and dmgTaken is the sum of all Damage taken stats, for example VulnerabilityVulnerabilityCurse, Spell, AoE, Duration
