View Full Version : Sorcerer Fire Trap Spell

03-25-2012, 01:00 PM
I have not used this spell before but it is doing terrible damage - lower than the minimum even without any enhancements. Empower and/or Maximize, and spell boost clickies seem to have no effect. Anyone have experience with this?

I am playing a lvl 11 sorcerer fire savant (so effective lvl 13 plus all the required enhancements). Spell says it does 4-6 dmg per level up to 20, save for half.

Regular critters were saving and taking 10-12 fire damage. Ice mephits saved and took 4(***??) to 14 damage.

Probably not, because you might be the only person that has ever cast that spell in the past five years.

Much like Air Savants having damage issues when using Call Lightning Storm (via Dragonmarks) there is the possibility that Fire Trap is having problems properly scaling the spell with you being a Fire Savant. I recall Fire Trap functioning as expected when used from a scroll or when I was an Artificer.
