I encountered someone standing at the Gianthold mailbox, wreathed in flames. Reflexively I thought “fire shield”, but this was a completely different flame animation, one that was much richer and more complex. On a high-level sorceror. Interesting. A new theory emerged. Fire Savant?
Indeed that turned out to be the case. I’d never seen one, it is not a popular choice, so many of the end game creatures and bosses are immune to fire.
But oh, so beautiful!
Hot and cold running Coin
I changed Coin over to Fire Savant just because of the look. It is as awesome as I had hoped! A quick test-drive (BAM elite solo) revealed significant downside – Fire Savant is simply not as effective as Earth or (especially) Water. The SLAs aren’t as good, the only DOT is the much-weakened Firewall, and of course, lots of creatures are immune to fire.
With only one type remaining untested, the picture clarifies:
Sure does look cool though !
