Vaal Burning Arrow is a vaal attack that fires an exploding arrow with increased chance to ignite.

If Vaal Burning Arrow passes through an enemy it hits before hitting the target area (such as through Pierce and chain), then it will explode both at the target area, and on the enemy it passes through.

Version history

Version Changes
  • Quality now provides 0-20% more Damage with Ignite, instead of +0-10% to Fire Damage over Time Multiplier.
  • Vaal Burning Arrow now deals 280% of base Attack Damage at gem level 1 (previously 200%), up to 400% at gem level 20 (previously 284%). Also
  • Now has 280% Effectiveness of Added Damage at gem level 1 (previously 200%), up to 400% at gem level 20 (previously 284%).
  • Now has an Attack Speed of 70% of base (previously 90%). Now uses the same Bow animation as Puncture.
  • Now stores up to 3 uses (previously 4), and has a 2 second Soul Gain Prevention (previously 1 second).
  • No longer has a stacking Burning Effect, and now adds 3 to 4 Fire Damage to Attacks against Ignited Enemies at gem level 1, up to 201 to 302 Fire Damage at gem level 20.
  • Now has an Attack Speed of 90% of Base (previously 100%), and deals 200% of base Attack Damage at gem level 1 (previously 160%), up to 284% at gem level 20 (previously 198%).
  • Now has 200% Effectiveness of Added Damage at gem level 1 (previously 160%), up to 284% at gem level 20 (previously 198%).
  • Now expends 15 Souls per use (previously 20).
  • Now stores up to 4 uses (previously 3).
  • Now has a Soul Gain Prevention duration of 1 second (previously 2).
  • Vaal Skill Gems can now only be obtained from a set of specific methods such as Corrupting Gems, Vaal Side Areas, Divination Cards (that specifically grant Vaal Skill Gems) and the Lapidary Lens in the Temple of Atzoatl.
  • Now does 160% of attack damage, up from 130%. This fixes an accidental reduction of skill damage that occurred during the Burning Arrow change in 1.2.0.
  • Vaal Skill soul counts were initially balanced for Merciless difficulty, where there are more monsters. We want them to be easier to use in Normal and Cruel difficulty. We have halved the number of souls required for each skill. In Cruel difficulty, skills require 50% more souls to uses. In Merciless difficulty, they require 100% more (which is the same as before the patch).
  • Introduced to the game.
