Skills and Attributes

The following skills will affect this combat art:

  • Concentration - directly reduces regeneration time for this combat art.
  • Combat Discipline - will increase the damage of this combat art and lower its regeneration time if it is placed in a combo.
  • Ancient Magic - directly increases the damage and reduces enemies' resistance to the damage of this combat art (skill is only available to Temple Guardian with CM Patch).

The following attributes will affect this combat art:

  • Stamina will lower regeneration time

Usage Strategies

  • A player may gather as large a mob as possible, casting Fiery Ember while being attacked. If done successfully, each monster will be damaged by several of the damage points/volcanoes, resulting in significantly increased damage, as well as effecting a chance to set monsters on fire with Chance for Burn, etc.
  • Due to its reduction to enemy fire resists, it's useful to cast Fiery Ember before attacking with CA's like Furious Emblazer or fire-damage weapons socketed with lava chunks.
  • Fiery Ember has a wide radius that can be increased even further with +combat art range item modifiers, killing everything on the screen.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Can be useful against very large mobs that are not moving, for example enemies within melee range
  • The effect follows the Temple Guardian around while it lasts
  • Fire resist reduction can be useful when paired up with a fire High Elf
  • Damage mitigation protects against ice spells and melee attacks

Cons

Notes

Temple Guardian's CAs Fiery Ember and Icy Evanescence increase target's vulnerability to Ice or Fire; High Elf's Buff Crystal Skin has "Feel Cold" modification that causes all targets in close vicinity to the caster to be more vulnerable to Ice Damage. These CAs cause all enemies in Area of Effect to have modifier "Damage Vulnerability Ice/Fire +x%" which not only removes these enemies' resistance to Damage but can decrease it below zero, causing CAs to deal more damage than the value stated in CA description. These CAs do not affect target's Armor, but decrease "Damage Mitigation" modifier by fixed percentage (not by percent of target's mitigation like Ancient Magic).
