Fireball is a novice pyrokinetic spell in Divinity: Original Sin II.


Fireball is a offensive pyrokinetic spell that allows character to hurl a ball of flame at their target(s). The fireball deals fire damage and creates a fire surface upon making contact. Fire surface will last for 2 turns. Due to its nature, any flammable surfaces and clouds (oil, poison and web) will be set on fire and transformed into fire surface. Characters without Magic Armour Icon (Original Sin 2) Magic Armour will be afflicted with Burning (Original Sin 2) Burning status and suffer damage directly to their health.

This spell cannot be cast if character is Silenced (Original Sin 2) Silenced. Fireball spell is NOT reflected back when the target is under Deflective Barrier skill (Definitive Edition only).

Damage Modifier[]

Damage of this skill is calculated with the following formula: (Base Damage) x (1 + Elemental Bonus%) x (1 + Attribute Bonus% + Weapon Skill Bonus %) x (1 + High Ground Bonus% + Crit Bonus%) x ( 1 + Misc Bonus %)

The damage of this spell is affected by the following attributes of the caster:

  • Level
  • Pyrokinetic ability
  • Intelligence attribute
  • Height bonus
  • Critical Damage Modifier

Out of these the most effect on the damage have level and then Pyrokinetic ability as the latter increases damage by 5 % per point. Level provides greatest boost to the damage done. Intelligence provides the lowest bonus out of the three (3 points in Intelligence are equal to 1 point of Pyrokinetic).

When it comes to enemies they may resist fire damage if they have: Fire Immunity Status and high enough Fire Resistance Icon (Original Sin 2) Fire Resistance (which lowers fire damage done).
