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.
  • Mind Over Matter: Mind Over Matter does interact with Righteous Fire degeneration and will drain mana.
  • 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 "increased damage" or "more damage". These stats do not apply to the self-inflicted damage from Righteous Fire.
    • Increased and decreased spell damage does not affect the degeneration damage because spell damage and damage over time are two distinct and mutually exclusive damage sources.
    • Aura modifiers don't affect Righteous Fire because it's not an aura.
  • Spell Totem: When linked with the support gem Spell Totem SupportSpell Totem SupportSupport, Totem

    Mana Multiplier: 200%
    Requires Level 8Supports spell skills that are not triggered. Instead of casting that spell, you will summon a totem that casts the spell for you.Per 1% Quality:

    Totem lasts 8 seconds
    Supported Skills deal (35-26)% less Damage
    Spells Cast by Totem have 30% less Cast Speed
    This is a Support Gem. It does not grant a bonus to your character, but to skills in sockets connected to it. Place into an item socket connected to a socket containing the Active Skill Gem you wish to augment. Right click to remove from a socket.
    , 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, which are not supported when self-cast due to the lack of a duration tag.
  • Efficacy support: As of patch 3.0.2 Efficacy support now works with Righteous Fire without needing a duration tag.
  • Arcane Surge: Linking with the support gem Arcane Surge SupportArcane Surge SupportSupport, Spell, Duration

    Mana Multiplier: 110%
    Each supported spell will track how much mana you spend on it, granting a buff when the total mana spent reaches a threshold. Cannot support skills used by totems, traps, or mines.Per 1% Quality:

    Arcane Surge grants (10-20)% more Spell Damage
    Arcane Surge grants (10-19)% increased Cast Speed

    adds a duration component to the skill which allows the use of Swift Affliction, and Less Duration.
  • Ancestral Bond: It is possible to use Righteous Fire with the Ancestral Bond keystone. Both player and nearby monsters will burn but only the player will take damage, monsters will burn for 0 damage.
  • Vaal Discipline: Righteous Fire interacts with Vaal Discipline the same way as any other damage source.
  • Conditional Modifiers: Damage Over Time does not interact with modifiers that rely on the status of an enemy.[1] A notable example of this is Singularity's "increased Damage against Hindered Enemies" mod.[2]

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
