Patch LinkDatePatch NamePatch Notes
19 June 2023Beyond the Veil Patch 10Due to its infrequent usage in PvP, Burning Fields’ initial damage hit has been significantly increased. This further encourages utilizing the initial damage aspect of the spell, instead of relying on the burning effect on the ground, leading to more engaging fights.

Flame Blast has been competing with an array of other Fire Staff W-Spells. For this reason a mobility component has been added, improving its playability in the open world while encouraging cooperation with other players.

  • Burning Field (all Fire Staffs)
    • Damage of initial hit: 52 → 70
  • Flame Blast (all Fire Staffs)
    • When cast on yourself or an ally the target gains a 60% move speed bonus for 1.6s
21 November 2022Beyond the Veil UpdatePyroblast was somewhat unpopular since its rework, because though it had high potential damage it was difficult to always hit. To increase effectiveness, its maximum channel time is reduced and projectile range increased.
  • Pyroblast (One-handed Staff):
    • Projectile Range: 20m → 24m
    • Max Channel time: 2s → 1.2s
    • Minimum / Maximum Damage remain unchanged
5 October 2022Into the Fray Patch 7Fire Bolt had recently been dealing damage too quickly in 2v2 Hellgates. To make it less oppressive its cast time has been increased, while to make it more attractive in other content its cast range has also been increased. Additionally, Flame Pillar’s damage has been reduced slightly, though it still has very high burst damage potential on a potentially very low cooldown.
  • Fire Bolt (all Fire Staffs):
    • Cast time: 0.7s → 0.8s
    • Cast Range: 11m → 12m
  • Flame Pillar (Great Fire Staff):
    • Damage: 200 → 190
25 August 2022Into the Fray Patch 5
  • Flame Pillar (Great Fire Staff):
    • Damage: 218 → 200
  • 20 June 2022Into the Fray Patch 1
    • Pyroblast (one-handed Fire Staffs):
      • Adjusted the aiming mechanic:
      • Significantly increased rotation speed
      • The aiming area is no longer displayed to other players
    • Fire Bolt (all Fire Staffs):
      • Instant Damage: 70 → 62
      • DoT Damage per Tick: 5.5 → 5
    • Flame Blast (all Fire Staffs):
      • Cooldown: 8s → 12s
      • Explosion Damage: 150 → 140
      • Instant Damage: 45 → 40
    8 June 2022Into the Fray UpdatePyroblast is now a channeled skillshot that rewards positioning and timing. Ignite has been replaced with a new ability: Flame Blast. And Infernal Staff's Contagious Fire has been replaced with Combustion, which ignites an enemy, leaving behind a flaming trail that silences. The Burn effect of Fire Bolt now triggers sooner, increasing the damage output if the same target is hit multiple times. Flame Pillar now deals significantly more damage on a higher cooldown (15s). If at least one enemy is hit, however, the cooldown is reduced back to 10s. Various other improvements and adjustments have also been made to make these staffs feel more polished.
    • Fire Bolt (all Fire Staffs):
      • Burn Damage over Time Delay: 1s → 0.3s
      • Hit Delay: 0.2s → 0.12s
    • Burning Field (all Fire Staffs):
      • Hit Delay: 0.1s → 0.15s
    • Removed the ability Ignite (all Fire Staffs)
    • Added a new W-Slot ability, Flame Blast (all Fire Staffs):
      • Select a target (Ally, Enemy, Self) - after 1.6s an explosion occurs around the target, dealing 150 magical damage to all enemies in a 5m radius.
      • If the main target is an enemy they also take an additional 45 magical damage immediately.
    • Wall of Flames (all Fire Staffs):

    • Fire Artillery (all Fire Staffs):
      • Hit Delay: 0.1s → 0s
      • Projectile Hit Delay: 0.5s → 0.2s
    • Pyroblast (One-handed Fire Staff) has been completely reworked:
      • Pyroblast is charged while channeling for up to 2s (can aim while channeling)
      • Deals magical damage in a 4m radius upon impact with an enemy, dependent upon the length of the channel
        • Charge Up: 0.5s / 1s / 1.5s / 2s - Damage: 240 / 280 / 320 / 360
        • (Previous Pyroblast instant Damage: 300)
      • If channeled for the full duration, the Pyroblast also knocks targets back 2.5m
    • Flame Pillar (Great Fire Staff):
      • Damage: 184 → 218
      • Cooldown: 10s → 15s
      • If at least one enemy is hit the cooldown is reduced to 10s
      • Energy Cost: 13 → 9

    • Removed the ability Contagious Fire (Infernal Staff)
    • Added a new E-slot Ability, Combustion (Infernal Staff):
      • Ignite the targeted enemy, dealing 143 magical damage over 5s
      • After a short delay, the burning enemy leaves a continuous fiery trail that lasts 4.6s
      • Deals 28 magical damage vs. players / 26 magical damage vs. mobs every 0.5s
      • Enemy players on the trail are silenced
    8 June 2022Into the Fray Update
  • Fire Staffs:
    • Pyroblast is now a channeled skillshot that rewards positioning and timing; Ignite replaced with a new ability, Flame Blast; Infernal Staff's Contagious Fire replaced with Combustion which ignites an enemy leaving a flaming trail that silences
  • 26 January 2022Lands Awakened Patch 4Wildfire Staff remains strong across multiple content types. Its burst damage remains high, and its low cast time makes it hard for enemies to avoid. The cast time has thus been reverted to 0.6s, allowing enemies to react if Magma Sphere is cast directly at them. Additionally, base damage of its first impact was reduced. The true damage DoT retains its strong impact against tanks and high HP builds, but no longer harms cloth users as quickly.

    The range of Searing Flame was reduced, since it was too high for a low-cooldown, high-damage Q-ability.

    Since Dawnsong is more likely to hit enemy frontlines, it was difficult to utilize the Healing Cast debuff, as enemy Healers are usually in the backline. To make this debuff more dependable, it now reduces Healing Received instead. Additionally, its cooldown was adjusted to 30s to make it easier to sync with other ZvZ forces.

    • Searing Flame (all Fire Staffs):
      • Range: 20m → 18m
      • Projectile Speed: 25m/s → 21.6m/s
    • Magma Sphere (Wildfire Staff):
      • Cast Time: 0.4s → 0.6s
      • Instant Damage: 296 → 240
    • Flaming Phoenix (Dawnsong):
      • Debuff now reduces Healing Received (previously Healing Cast)
      • Cooldown: 40s → 30s
      • Cast Time: 1s → 0.6s
    13 October 2021Call to Arms Patch 11Wildfire Staff has struggled to find a valuable spot in group compositions. Its core mechanic meant it was not well-suited to small-scale fights, while other DPS options outshone it in large-scale combat. To give it a specific DPS sub-role specifically suited to punishing enemy frontlines, the burning effect now ignores armor and deals 3.75% of the player's max health per tick as damage. This makes it more desirable against tanks and heavily-armored players. This fits the ability design better, as the rolling Magma Sphere is quite difficult to land on the enemy’s backline but much better suited to punishing overextended frontlines.
    • Searing Flame (all Fire Staffs):
      • Fixed an issue where its collision detection was unreliable at max range - this means its effective range is now increased
    • Magma Sphere (Wildfire Staff):
      • Projectile Speed: 7.67m/s → 11.5m/s
      • Cast Speed: 0.6s → 0.4s
      • Instant Damage: 267.43 → 296
      • Ignite Damage per tick: 20.06 → 3.75% of the target's Max Health
    28 July 2021Call to Arms Patch 9Fire Staffs

    Fire Staffs are currently underrepresented in many types of PvP content and are often outclassed by Frost Staffs in group PvP. To make Fire Staffs more attractive in group fights, a new Q-ability, Searing Flame, has been added. This ability is a Q-slot skillshot which allows users to deal constant damage from the backline. The damage of each individual hit is moderate, but if the caster lands 3 hits in a row, the next projectile becomes Furious Flame and deals far greater damage.

    • Added a new Q-slot Ability, Searing Flame:
      • Fire a Searing Flame in the target direction. The first enemy hit receives 94 magical damage and starts burning. Each time you hit an enemy with Searing Flame you get a charge. If you have 3 Searing Flame Charges, your next Searing Flame cast will be a Furious Flame instead, dealing 182 magical damage on impact. Burning enemies take 11 magical damage every second for 4 seconds.
    6 May 2021Call to Arms Patch 4 (Balance Patch)Fire Staffs

    Fire Wave is now easier to hit with and deals more damage. Fire Wall, with its lasting area, still has more utility, but Fire Wave is an alternative (with more damage plus knockback) in smaller or 1v1 fights.

    • Fire Wave (all Fire Staffs):
      • Cone area now quickly swipes from left to right, covering more horizontal space
      • Enemies hit now receive an additional 75 magic damage if any Q-slot DoT is active on them
