Incinerate is a channeling fire spell that launches a torrent of fire from the user's hands, rapidly dealing fire damage. The longer the channel is held, the bigger the damage and area becomes. Releasing the channel launches a wave of fire that deals more fire and ignite damage.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Incinerate gains more damage when cast continuously from one spot, up to a maximum of 200% more damage (25% per stage up to 8 stages maximum, or 10 if you use the helmet enchantment). The next stage is reached after every tick (0.2s). At each stage, the flames become visibly larger and will spread out in a huge cone. If the player is stunned or interrupted in any way while casting incinerate, the spell will come back to stage 1.
  • Damage Effectiveness: The damage effectiveness of Incinerate is a relatively low 30%. However, at the highest stage of Incinerate, flat damage (such as from Herald of ThunderHerald of ThunderSpell, AoE, Duration, Lightning, Herald

Basic Mathematical Modelling

The following calculation aims towards characters that have a critical strike chance of either 0% or a critical strike multiplier that is strictly 100% (e.g. for characters with the keystones Resolute Technique or Elemental Overload allocated). It can be easily extended to account for critical hits which can be implemented as a multiplicative factor to the skills average base damage.

The additional damage from ignite is assumed to be negligible. Characters that specialise in burning damage are aiming towards the largest ignite damage possible and always want to release at maximum stage if possible.

Under these assumptions, one can calculate the average base damage dealt per second (depending on the current stage n) via

Similarly, the average damage upon release can be calculated to be

One also finds

for the average ramp-up DPS when building stages. To calculate the average damage dealt by repeatedly releasing at maximum stages, we have to sum the latter two formulas as follows

For the multiplier brackets evaluate to respectively for continued releasing, and continued fire, i.e. continued releasing results in approximately 41% more DPS.

    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.
2.1.0
  • No longer affected by Spell Echo, as was intended in 2.0.0. Incinerate now only adds 50% more damage for each stage, down from 100% more damage. Incinerate's damage has been increased by 15% at level 1 and reduced by approximately 8% at level 20.

  • Incinerate now has an informational icon which displays what stage it is in when you continue to cast it.
