Description

A boulder of flaming hot magma that both damages and knocks back your opponents. The first hit of Molten Boulder always knocks back the enemy, unless it's impossible (if they're backed up against a wall). If the enemy can't be knocked back or if the Molten Boulder hits some scenery (like a tree), then the Molten Boulder explodes. Skills that both knock back and damage enemies are excellent against larger monsters that excel in melee combat. Molten Boulder keeps enemies away from you, destroying some in the process. This skill does 11-16 points of fire damage at level 1 (which includes a small radius of area of effect damage). Damage increases with every skill point you spend. It also has a cool down time so that it cannot be used in quick succession. [1]
