  • Despite the in-game description, this effect does not increase the target's armor rating, but inflicts fire damage upon nearby adversaries.
  • This effect's magnitude directly corresponds to the increase in fire resistance (e.g., if the target has 10% fire resistance and uses a 25-point effect, the result is 35% fire resistance for the duration). Ten percent of the effect's magnitude corresponds to the damage dealt to nearby opponents.
