Fire Spells

Skill Level Chart

Fire Bolt [1], Warmth [1], Inferno [6], Blaze [12], Fireball [12], Fire Wall [18], Enchant [18], Meteor [24], Fire Mastery [30], Hydra [30]

Fire Spells will not damage Fire Immune monsters. They will have no effect.

The Spells Meteor, Firewall, Blaze, and Hydra will immediately disappear/cancel after you use a Town Portal or Waypoint to return to Town. So they will not be doing damage while you're back in town via Town Portal.

Fire Bolt Fire Bolt
Required Level: 1
Prerequisites: None

The Fire Bolt is among the first cantrips a young Sorceress must learn before traveling out into the known world. Gathering a small amount of elemental energies, the Sorceress hurls darts of pure fire at those who would seek to injure her.

Effect: Creates a bolt of fire.

A great early level skill. The Sorceress starts off with a +1 to Fire Bolt Staff so it's easy to start into Fire Bolt.

Keep in mind that Fire Ball is available at level 12 before sinking too many points into Fire bolt.

Warmth Warmth
Required Level: 1
Prerequisites: None

If a Sorceress wishes to truly become a formidable spellcaster, she will pursue this talent. By collecting the essence of the ambient heat in the surrounding air, she can convert this energy into the mystical force that powers her spells. In this way, she recovers more quickly from her magical exertions.

Passive Effect: Increases your Mana recovery rate.

Warmth can be a very important skill for the Sorceress. Because almost all of the Sorceress' skills require Mana, faster Mana Recovery Rate will allow for less downtime between fights and will allow you to use less Mana Potions to recover Mana. Keep in mind that having more Mana (with +Mana Items, More Energy, Frostburns, Stone of Jordan), can also make your mana regenerate faster so you may not have to maximize Warmth to get the desired rate of Mana Regeneration. However if you have extra points, and don't have a place to spend them, why not spend them in Warmth. Critics disagree as to how much is enough Warmth. Some say maximize the Warmth skill, while others say having lots of Mana, and using Mana Potions is enough. All agree that at least one point in Warmth is worth it. You can make the decision for yourself.

Warmth + Regeneration Items: How does an item with Mana Regeneration work with Warmth?
In this case the formula is: [BaseRegenrate*(100%+Warmth) ]+item.

Inferno Inferno
Required Level: 6
Prerequisites: None

Using this spell, a Sorceress can reach into the depths of her being and issue forth a gout of fire, incinerating any opponents standing within its reach.

Effect: A spout of flame that burns your enemies.

Prerequisites: Inferno [6]

Using this spell, the Sorceress ignites the very ground she walks upon, leaving behind a blazing wall of flame.

Many of the dumber creatures (undead especially) will follow you even to the point of smoking in the wake of your Blaze.

Fireball Fireball
Required Level: 12
Prerequisites: Fire Bolt [1]

Once she has learned the basic incantation of this spell, the Sorceress can collect a large amount of elemental fire and contain it within a globe of energy. Discharging it toward her enemy, those energies are released in a devastating explosion upon impact. This spell of mass destruction is ideal for bombarding the encampments of her enemies.

Effect: Creates a ball of fire that explodes on impact.

Firewall Fire Wall
Casting Delay: 1.4 Seconds
Required Level: 18
Prerequisites: Inferno [6], Blaze [12]

This skill allows the Sorceress to raise a barrier of flame to block her flanks from attack, creating a tactical advantage for both herself and her allies. Any creature unwitting enough to attempt to cross the barrier will feel the full force of these flames as they advance to their ruin.

Effect: Creates a wall of fire.

The best thing about Fire Wall is that the damage stacks. Use Fire Wall on the other side of valleys, and rivers when monsters are unable to reach you. Lay down some Fire Walls, then lead Monsters into it. Run in circles around the areas of Fire Wall, until the Monsters within die. You can combine with Static Field to bring then monsters' hit points down while the Fire Wall is also working on them. You can even throw some Meteors on top of that as well. When in parties, cast a Fire Wall around any Melee attacker in your party. This works especially well with something like a Golem which attracts monsters. While the monsters attack the Golem, the Fire Wall around will finish these monsters off. When a fallguy isn't available, move up close to a monster and let them attack you while you keep them standing in a Fire Wall. Some monsters are smart and will try to avoid the Fire Wall.

Enchant Enchant
Required Level: 18
Prerequisites: Fire Bolt [1], Warmth [1], Fireball [12]

Upon learning this skill, an experienced Sorceress has the ability to imbue a weapon with the power of fire. The renowned Sorceress, Habacalva, once assaulted the elemental planes themselves wielding such an enchanted mace. Her enemies soon came to fear the mention of the weapon as much as her name.

Effect: Temporarily adds Fire damage to a weapon.

Enchant can be cast on other party members, Minions and Hirelings. Once active, you can switch between weapons and they will all have additional fire damage. Enchant will even work to improve Arrows, so cast it on Amazons.

Enchant works very well with Hirelings, especially Act II and Act V Hirelings. Find an Orb or Staff with +1-3 to Enchant and place it in your alternate Weapon Tab. Switch to that weapon, cast Enchant on your Hireling, then switch back to your main Weapon Tab. You can tell when Enchant has worn off by opening your Hireling Screen and noting the damage for the Hireling. If it's not red, Enchant has worn off. Using Enchant you can significantly increase the damage of your Hireling. You can place "real" points into Enchant or use + Skills/Skill Tab Items to further enhance Enchant on your Hireling.

Using Enchant on ranged weapons boosts the damage a variable amount.

Meteor Meteor
Casting Delay: 1.2 Seconds
Required Level: 24
Prerequisites: Fire Bolt [1], Inferno [6], Blaze [12], Fire Wall [18], Fireball [12]

Reaching out to the heavens, the Sorceress calls down a falling star to strike her adversaries. This is one of the strongest of her spells, capable of reducing large areas to cinders. During the Vactayan uprising, a Sorceress by the name of Hepsheeba took pity on the plight of the revolutionaries, and joined their cause. During the final battle of the conflict she cast this spell to great effect, single-handedly destroying the entirety of Lord Bareen's troops and delivering the Vactayans from his tyranny.

Effect: Draws down a meteor from the heavens to smash your enemies.

Meteor takes some skill to use. Meteors take a bit of time to land, and the radius is fixed at 4 yards. This makes it easy to miss monsters when you are retreating from them yourself or when they are moving around. When by yourself, walk in a straight line, and cast a Meteor up ahead of your path. Walk forward into the Meteor as it lands, leading the Monsters behind you into it's impact point. With some practice you can get this down. If you're able to take some hits, cast a lot of Meteors on yourself, stop, and let the monsters come up to attack you, which will set them up for a storm of Meteors. When in parties with melee party members, cast Meteors on top of them as they fight. This will allow them to quickly finish a monster off. Whenever possible cast Meteors on monsters across valleys or rivers.

Fire Mastery Fire Mastery
Required Level: 30
Prerequisites: None

Even for the Sorceress, the destructive powers of the flame can prove uncooperative at times. The very unpredictability of elemental flame poses a danger to those unskilled in its usage. Sisters of the flame must take this last step to complete their training in the use of fire, and to maximize its effects.

Passive Effect: Increases the damage done by your fire spells.

Fire Mastery is very important if you focus in Fire Spells. This can quickly raise the damage of your Fire Skills to unbelievable levels.

Hydra Hydra
Casting Delay: 1.6 Seconds
Required Level: 30
Prerequisites: Fire Bolt [1], Warmth [1], Fireball [12], Enchant [18]

This skill enables the Sorceress to summon a beast of pure flame from the core of the world. The Hydra have been allies of the Zann Esu women for generations, owing their freedom in ancient times to the actions of the renowned Sorceress, Habacalva. They never fail to answer a call from a proven Sorceress, and stand ready to spit bolts of scorching magma at her enemies.

Effect: Creates a multi-headed beast that attacks your enemies with bolts of fire.

Place points in Fire Mastery to increase the damage of Hydra.
