  • 25° cone AoE
  • Is not affected by range bonuses (Far Out Man, Farsight)
  • Will deal damage to allied undead
  • Restores enemies' status effects, but doesn't heal them
  • Douses fires, both surfaces and characters
  • If the cone hits normal steam, the bless effect spreads to it, too
  • Cleanses Chilled, Frozen, Diseased, Infectious Disease, Decaying, Plague, Infested


Steam Lance trivia & strategies

  • Rather cumbersome to use considering it's large AoE and how it hits undead allies and cleanses status effects from enemies. The healing effect is the same as Restoration's, and the fact that it uses 2 source points means that it should probably be left out of a caster's spell arsenal.
  • The scrolls, however, can be far more useful, as they also cost 2 AP only
  • It's useful when multiple characters are afflicted by decaying, and you need to heal them quickly
