[edit] Notes

  • Wastrel's Worry and Demise can be used as cover hexes and to pressure the target to act prematurely.
  • The damage is triggered by successful activation of a spell, but it is applied before the spell takes effect. Accordingly, targets will take damage if they use a spell to remove Backfire; they can also die by casting a healing spell.
  • Similar to Chaos Storm, the AI will only use this skill on a foe wielding a staff or wand, even if the potential target is a spellcaster-primary profession foe with 8 spells on their skill bar.
