General InformationEdit


  • Gives synergy to: None
  • Receives synergy from: None

This ability is a Finishing Move.

This ability adds fire damage based on the user's physical damage (on top of the existing physical damage). Kicking a physical immune enemy results in an explosion that deals 0 damage. This skill will also inflict knockback in the area of effect.

Combined with Tiger Strike and a good pair of elite boots, this skill can generate extremely lethal looking damage on the character screen. Nevertheless, the actual damage dealt is nowhere near as good, mainly because the damage is part physical and part fire, resulting in it being resisted twice (physical resistance of the enemy kicked, and fire resistance of all enemies in the area of effect). Despite this flaw, this skill is still powerful when fully utilized — particularly in Hell mode, where many monsters are immune to physical or fire damage, but rarely both.
