Tactical Information

Fire-lore is a great skill for reducing damage dealt by melee enemies. You can use it to reduce the damage of a single enemy that deals a lot of melee damage (for instance a boss), or that of a group of enemies that all deal melee damage. Due to the cooldown of the skill it is usually not worth using on enemies with a low morale pool that will die quickly, unless there's a lot of them at once. Note that with trait and maxed legacy, this skill can even debuff a group of 13 enemies.
