|Version 19.040.1||26 January 2022||Lands Awakened Patch 4||Wildfire 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.
|Version 18.110.1||13 October 2021||Call to Arms Patch 11||Wildfire 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.
