Fire Mage War Mode Talents for Leveling

In this section we will rank the PvP talents best for leveling and doing solo / small group PvE content.

  1. Ring of Fire Icon Ring of Fire puts up a relatively large circle, that burns enemies who walk into the outer part of the circle, doing significant damage.
  2. Greater Pyroblast Icon Greater Pyroblast is a very hard-hitting spell, especially on high-health enemies, and it will greatly increase your damage against high-health enemies.
  3. Pyrokinesis Icon Pyrokinesis allows you to use Combustion Icon Combustion more often, allowing you to kill enemies quicker.


Congratulations on reaching Level 70! Now that you have hit Level 70, we recommend looking at our Easy mode page and Talents section to learn how to play at max level.
