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



Stun length gets reduced with each new trigger now in pvp, WoF hits so fast it wont be good anymore for stunning, and the buff to dmg is not that great.

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)


Good idea. The stun with a meaty grizzly to capitalize would dish out some serious damage

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


about a factor of 3 off

you guys are looking at this from a wind druid perspective. I just want to shoot molten boulders across the blood moor like a necro does bone spears

like it was mentioned, even with 2x the speed its only moving at 1/3 the speed of bone spear
its good if you can time it vs someone who tries to telestomp you, but I'd like to see you try to hit a sorc with 200fcr hahaha

noooo keep the dream up buddy!

fire druid is gonna be op as fuck, just not like you see him maybe...
he still has a cast delay for each fire spells
but no delay between each other spell used
so at 163fcr (10 frames per cast) you can cast 1 fissure, 1 volcano, 1 boulder every 30 frames (1.2sec)
try to keep the boulder timing to prevent any telestomp
if the opponent has good timing to jump you, 1) you're not locked in cast delay so you can tele away 2) you can instantly switch to twister and stun him now with improved stun length from 0.4s to 2s (easy to trigger stuns with all those fire spells up at all time around you + up to 5 wolves and 5 improved ravens)
