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):

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.
