Visible buff from Ember Arrows ability

In-Game Description

(Passive) When standing by a blaze, Hero's ranged attacks have +x damage, +1 shred, and start fires. Fire can't spread onto them.

Upgrade

(Active) As a swift action, once per turn, Hero can move to a tile adjacent to a fire within 4 tiles.

Specifics

  • Bonus damage = Potency
  • Any adjacency to fire (including diagonal) will grant the bonus damage/shred, as will actually standing in fire.
  • Only actual fire tiles provide this effect; campfires, lamps, and other illuminated scenery do not.
  • While fire will not spread onto a hero with Ember Arrows, the ability does not bestow any resistance to fire damage.
  • The attack will start a blaze in the destination tile.

Uses

Ember Arrows combos well with an offhand Torch, a Warrior with the Raider ability, a Fire Chicken, or any other reliable means of setting the battlefield ablaze.
