Problem with burning...[edit]

I just got Nightfall recently (it rocks!) and have been using this skill a lot. I observed that the burning effect doesn't seem to trigger consistently. Sometimes it burns enemies adjacent to me, sometimes it doesn't, even when they're clearly next to me, even the ones i'm hitting. I'm not sure if this problem is specific to this skill, or has to do with range in general (although Cyclone Axe doesn't seem to suffer from the this problem), or maybe scythes have a slightly longer range (improbable). I always use Pious Assault to end this enchantment. Any ideas? Vedreus Aardimus 07:08, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Could it be that the foes are immune to Burning? (Flame Djinn or foes using Frigid Armor) --Srakin 21:06, 15 March 2008 (UTC)
If they're immune to Burning then no Cause A Little Mayhem 04:04, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
I'm getting this problem too. I'm removing the enchantment with Pious Assault and can see the enchantment disappear from my Effects Monitor but sometimes no burning is applied. And the foes are not immune to burning. --Combatter 23:01, 23 June 2011 (UTC)


Is that Balthazar in the back ? Since its holy damage and all, sort of a temporary damage mod like Avatar of Balthazar.Farlong 05:20, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Use with Melandru[edit]

Will this overwrite the Melandru Avatar earth damage? If cast after the avatar it would only make sense that it would overwrite. I will do some testing to confirm this. Nay the One and Only 19:42, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Confirmed it does overwrite the current damage type even if its damage cause by an avatar form. Nay the One and Only 21:03, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

Nearby Foes[edit]

The ingame description specifies "nearby foes" rather than "adjacent foes" for both the initial and end effects. 10:37, 4 May 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for posting. I've made the change. (If you see something like this again, please feel free to change it yourself; registration is not required.)
ok i edited the remaining "adjacent" terms 11:45, 4 May 2011 (UTC)
thanks! I wish I could say that I left two more in there as an exercise for the reader, but ... I wasn't paying enough attention (didn't realize that ANet likes to keep repeating itself so much).  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 11:48, 4 May 2011 (UTC)

Ignores Armor[edit]

Heart of Holy Flame Ignoring Armor

Corrected the note on the damage being armor-respecting. From the screenshot, it deals a flat 28 damage to the 60, 80, and 100 AR dummies. Soldier198 (talk) 13:59, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

As far as I know, all holy damage directly caused by skills is armor-ignoring. I'm not sure if it's really worth a note.--Ruine User Ruine Eternelle Ruine Eternelle.jpg Eternelle 14:19, 18 May 2020 (UTC)
It is worth a note in this case. Soldier198 (talk) 14:24, 18 May 2020 (UTC)
