- All mages are pyromaniacs…at least a little bit.
Scorch is a mage ability available at level 48 for those with the Fire specialization. It deals fire direct damage, modified by spell power. Its short cast time offers proportional damage output when compared to other direct damage fire spells. Scorch's damage is instant once the spell is cast. It is a blast effect rather than a missile or projectile. This makes it hard to trace back to the casting mage. Scorch has the best damage per mana ratio of all fire spells.
