Skill functions and interactions

  • Stages: Flameblast deals more damage at each stage, starting from the second. This means it does base damage at the 1st stage, then 100% plus 165% with hits at the second stage, and so on, resulting in 1485% more Spell Damage modifier at the last stage, or 15.85x base damage with hits, and 540% more damage with ailments at the last stage, or 6.4x ailment damage.[1]
  • Cast speed: At base cast speed it takes 2 seconds to reach the maximum stage. Increasing the cast speed reduces the time to reach the next stage, similar to how IncinerateIncinerateSpell, Fire, Channelling, AoE

    are now channelled skills.
  • Unlike other skills, which are used once and quickly finish, when you use a channelled skill, it doesn't finish until you release the relevant button/key. You continue performing the same skill.
  • You need to pay mana repeatedly to keep the skill going. The channelled skill's mana cost must be paid again to maintain it with a frequency determined by the cast time. If you can't pay, the skill will end, just as if you'd lifted the button.
  • Dying, being stunned, and other game mechanics that interrupt the use of skills will cause channelling to end as well.
  • Effects which trigger when you use a skill will only trigger when you initially start channelling - regardless of how long you maintain a channelled skill, it's still the same use of the skill. You need to stop channelling if you want to use it again.
