to put some perspective to it, molten boulder currently has a velocity of 4, compared to fireball with 20, guided arrow with 24, ice blast with 12, bone spear 24, bone spirit 12
so now it will have 8 velocity


so ur saying a dodgeball druid wouldnt be fun? pff you must be great at parties

ive had the joy of playing boulder druid vs boulder druid in VLLD, ironman I think, but never at HLD
I did however once match against another blaze sorc in a duel game and we went to the inner cloister and played full blown tron light cycle mode no firewall allowed

it should be interesting to try stomping with enigma now i think. youre not just in mortal danger immediately after you cast something now lol.

to op i dont think any druid that plays the class long enough is going to pretend to be a fire sorc, like goom said theyre quite slow. the speed buff *should* help with stomping people, things like zons that dodged and tried to bail out, etc.

you dont need quickcast to do that


obviously not. but a build that requires spamming 3 skills nonstop back to back to back is a perfect example of ideal utilization of quick cast

its not about molten boulder, or the few dmg buff to fire spells
its all about removing the cast delay between each spell
with also easier cast with smartkeys, at max 163 fcr (10 frames per cast) you can cast at max speed by alternating fissure/molten/volcano nonstop

If molten bolder was actually viable that would be my go to build. Such a cool skill

This. This also sets up your Cano grizzly combo in more succession s

Or you just get on a wake of fire assassin with a nice buff.

Yep
But also while all these fire spells hit multiple times per cast, paired with the buff to twister’s stun (from 0.4s to 2s) it will get very easy to have a massive cluster of spells hitting everywhere around you while being able to spam twister (1pt twister, no dmg synergies, just stun lenght synergy)
