Deals [X-Y] fire damage every turn.

  • Fire Resistance: -15%
  • Water Resistance: +10%

Divinity: Original Sin II[]

Description[]

Burning is a negative environmental status effect which inflicts fire damage upon afflicted character. Fire damage will gradually destroy Magic Armour until it reaches 0 when it will start to damage Vitality and stay on the character independent of environment. While Burning is a negative status it is also the only way to remove Enwebbed status effect (the other being Spider Legs spell).

Burning will also lower Fire Resistance by 15 % and increase Water Resistance by 10 %.

Cause[]

There are many ways through which burning status effect can be triggered. On Rivellon it is the contact with fire surface or fire cloud. These can be caused by igniting poison or oil surfaces and clouds.

In combat Burning can be caused by myriad of items or most commonly Pyrokinetic spells.

Treatment[]

Since Burning is a status effect tied to fire it can be resolved through opposite water element which is tied to Wet, Chilled, Frozen and Permafrost status effects. Additionaly Burning can be removed by Holy Fire status which will also grant immunity to it. If there are no viable means of reverting the status, then the best way to avoid damage to Vitality is by keeping Magic armour above 0. All consumable items that restore Magic armour can be strengthened by Five-Star Diner talent
