  • Stamina will lower regeneration time

Usage Strategies

  • The main buff for any Pyromancer High Elf. Mod it twice for reduction of regeneration time for the Arrant Pyromacer aspect and combat art regeneration times will plummet down, which allows the player to add more runes to them on the fly. Alternatively, mod for reflect and damage. A high chance to reflect will cause many melee-only enemies to kill themselves via reflected damage.
  • To get reflect chance as high as possible, a possible strategy is to mod for reflect and less regen time in gold. This will allow the player to increase the CA level (and reflect % level) more without penalizing the combat art's regen too much.

Pros and Cons


  • Seriously reduces combat art regeneration time within the Arrant Pyromancer aspect if modded appropriately.
  • High reflect chance at higher combat art levels is deadly against melee enemies.
  • Reduces the impact of fire damage received.
  • The best buff for any Arrant Pyromancer-oriented High Elf build.


  • Seriously increases combat art regeneration times for other aspects.
  • The Fire damage of Incandescent skin isn't significant.
  • Does not provide any armor bonus (though damage mitigation is arguably just as good/better).
