Tips

  • Flamesoul is one of the stronger themes for mystics with Vigorflow because (like Sylvan, Botanical, and Stormtouched) it offers a Vigorflow-boosted ranged attack that hits multiple targets. Flamesoul can be particularly convenient for Vigorflow because Cone of Fire creates Blazes, which are the ideal Vigorflow interfusion because they do not get destroyed.
  • Flamesoul's Cone of Fire is similar to Botanical's Thorn Lash in that both are line attacks. However, Cone of Fire hits a slightly wider area than Thorn Lash when not aimed in a cardinal direction. Cone of Fire also has more aiming freedom because it always hits the full range even if a nearby tile is targeted; certain tile configurations can be hit by targeting an intermediate tile that cannot be hit by targeting a tile at maximum range. In practice, these effects mean that it is often significantly easier to hit multiple targets with Cone of Fire than with Thorn Lash. The main tradeoff is that Cone of Fire requires an upgrade to scale fully with potency and bonus damage, while Thorn Lash does not.
