Fire Blast is a magic-type weapon which allows the player to channel a stream of fire that pierces through enemies and burns them. Damage is increased against targets covered in oil.

Details[edit | edit source]

  • Special Effects:
    • Requires 0.26 seconds of wind-up before the fire blast begins and prevents player action for 0.25 seconds after the player stops channeling the torrent.
    • Flames pierce through enemies and set the ground on fire, causing enemies caught in the flames to be inflicted with stacks of burning that deal 10 base DPS for 2 seconds.
      • Enemies can only be inflicted with burning stacks from either the fire blast or the fire pools created by the torrent once every 0.38 seconds.
    • Fire Blast deals 1.5x damage to oiled targets (15 base critical direct damage).
  • Breach Bonus: -1
    • Base Breach Damage: 0
    • Base Breach DPS: 0
  • Tags: Ranged, Fire
  • Legendary Version: Pyrolysis
    • Forced Affix: Fire Damage
      • "+100% damage on a burning target"

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Fire Blast's non-critical DPS seems to be calculated using a hypothetical 11-tick channel during which the enemy is also affected by 6 burning effects from this weapons. The calculation in this case is ([10 x 11] + [10 x 6]) damage / (0.26 + 1.0 + 0.25) seconds ~= 112 DPS.
    • In a more ideal scenario which neglects the wind-up and cool-down times by assuming that the channeling goes on for a long time, optimal instantaneous non-critical DPS is 160 (100 from direct damage, 60 from 6 burning stacks).
