      The best thing about this skill is a 2 turns cooldown which is the lowest magical spell CD in the game apart from dimensional bolt. That means you can consistently use your AP while saving memory attribute points. The worst part is the damage, it is rather low, but with torturer talent it becomes worth it with the additional dot damage

        had a great time using this on my geomancer/pyro with elemental affinity, start the round on a poison surface slinging earth spells, and then ignite to fire using only 1 AP

          Very good with the new Torturer talent now. 1AP to set every enemy around you on fire, which also lowers their fire resistance makes it a great opener that you can have right at the start of the game.
