Righteous Fire

Righteous Fire is a spell that applies a buff on the player, rapidly burning the player and nearby enemies. The damage it deals scales with your Life and Energy Shield amount. It also grants more spell damage to the user while active.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Life Degeneration Effect: While this skill is active, the player and surrounding enemies will take fire degeneration damage (damage over time). This damage can be mitigated with fire resistance for both the player and surrounding enemies. Righteous Fire will damage energy shield and keep it from recharging while the skill is active, but it can still regenerate if the player has life regeneration and the Zealot's Oath keystone or any other sources of energy shield regeneration.

  • Spell block and spell dodge: Keystones, passives, and item mods meant to avoid or block spell damage will not work on Righteous Fire's degeneration damage.

  • Elemental Reflect only reacts on hits. Because of this, the RF degeneration does not trigger reflect.

  • Chaos Inoculation: Characters with only 1 life due to Chaos Inoculation cannot inflict damage with Righteous Fire's degeneration because Righteous Fire will stop instantly upon activation.

  • Mind Over Matter: Mind Over Matter does interact with Righteous Fire degeneration and will drain mana.

  • Stopping Righteous Fire: Righteous Fire will continue to drain the player's HP until there is only 1 HP left, at which point it will turn off. The effect can be ended prematurely by any effect which removes burning, such as flasks with the "dousing" suffix. Taking the gem out of its socket will remove the skill effect, but will not stop the degen effect.

  • More Spell Damage Affix: Righteous Fire provides a large bonus to spell damage during its effect. Note that this is more damage stat, meaning it is a multiplier to overall damage.

  • Damage stats:

    • The following stats apply to the damage Righteous Fire deals to enemies: Fire damage, burning damage, damage over time, area damage and generic "increased damage" or "more damage". These stats do not apply to the self-inflicted damage from Righteous Fire.

    • Increased and decreased spell damage does not affect the degeneration damage because spell damage and damage over time are two distinct and mutually exclusive damage sources.

    • Aura modifiers don't affect Righteous Fire because it's not an aura.

  • Spell Totem Support: When linked with the support gem Spell Totem Support, burning damage is based off of the totem's life/energy shield pool rather than the caster. Burning Damage is inflicted instead upon the totem as well. Spell totem also allows use of Swift Affliction Support, which are not supported when self-cast due to the lack of a duration tag.

  • Efficacy Support: As of patch 3.0.2 Efficacy Support now works with Righteous Fire without needing a duration tag.

  • Arcane Surge Support: Linking with the support gem Arcane Surge Support adds a duration component to the skill which allows the use of Swift Affliction Support and Less Duration Support.

  • Inspiration Support: When Righteous Fire is linked with Inspiration Support, if the player gains Inspiration charge from another source (such as movement skill linked to another Inspiration Support), then Righteous Fire will benefit from the damage bonus from Inspiration charges.

  • Ancestral Bond: It is possible to use Righteous Fire with the Ancestral Bond keystone. Both player and nearby monsters will burn but only the player will take damage, monsters will burn for 0 damage.

  • Vaal Discipline: Righteous Fire interacts with Vaal Discipline the same way as any other damage source.

  • Conditional Modifiers: Damage Over Time does not interact with modifiers that rely on the status of an enemy. A notable example of this is the "increased Damage against Hindered Enemies" mod from Singularity.

  • Gluttony of Elements: If Gluttony of Elements is used with Righteous Fire the damage over time will heal instead.

  • Damage stacking: Multiple sources of Righteous Fire (such as from multiple players) do not stack, instead the source with the highest damage will take effect on the enemy.

Sustaining Righteous Fire

To sustain the degeneration damage Fire Resistance and Life Regeneration are needed. Depending on the player's resistance, less regeneration is needed to break even. The base formula is:

burnDegen = (lifeburnLife + ESBurnES) * (1 - fireRes) * (1 + dmgTaken)

where life, ES and fireRes is the characters maximum life, maximum energy shield and fire resistance. burnLife and burnES is the percent of life and energy shield that Righteous fire burns for and dmgTaken is the sum of all Damage taken stats, for example Despair, #% reduced Damage taken from Damage Over Time Locus of Corruption recipe, or the Assassin's Toxic Delivery node which grants 10% reduced Damage taken from Damage Over Time.

Damage taken per Second

The maximum Fire resistance can be increased by allocating passive skills such as Barbarism, Purity of Fire and unique items such as Rise of the Phoenix up to 90%.Much like Blood Rage, the damage from this skill does not count as a hit so does not trigger Cast when Damage Taken Support.
