Searing Bond summons a totem that creates fiery beams between the caster and each other totem he controls. The beams continuously cause fire damage to enemies that pass through them and enemies that stand too close to you or the totem. Totem range is 100.

Skill Functions and Interactions

The beams will only link between adjacent totems and the caster if they are within a certain range from each other. If a pair of totems are placed too far apart, or the caster moves too far away from a totem, or the path of a beam is obstructed by something like a wall—those links will be broken.

Fire damage dealt over time by the beams is considered burning damage, and therefore benefits from increased burning damage modifiers. The damage of the beams is also affected by increased fire, elemental, VulnerabilityVulnerabilityCurse, Spell, AoE, Duration

The additional totem provided by the skill increases the maximum number of Searing Bond totems, it does not stack with similar totem limit increases of other totem types. Only the highest number of the totems of one type counts as the global maximum number of summoned totems.
