General Information[edit]

  • Highest-damaging Fire spell (excluding Firestorm); 30% more powerful than Fireball.
  • Limited range (1-2 steps in front of the caster).
  • Cast is almost instantaneous; roughly the same speed of most faster weapon swings.
  • Splash deals full damage, and extends one step to either side of the caster.

In PvE[edit]

While its relatively high MP cost and short range make it hard to justify for two Spell Slots, Ignite deals incredible fire damage and can easily one-shot most minor enemies in the game. However, Ignite fares poorly against bosses because those weak to fire damage (Phalanx, Dirty Colossus , etc) are difficult and impractical to close with.

In PvP[edit]

Ignite is popular in PvP for its speed and power, most notably when used in the stunlock combo Fireball>Ignite, and because it eliminates a Mage's fundamental weakness; close quarters. Standard PvP lag has the effect of both increasing Ignite 's range and staggering the enemy, in some cases long enough for a second direct hit if the opponent hesitates.
