Fire Wall (Diablo II) is a Sorceress Skill in Diablo II.


This skill allows the Sorceress to raise a barrier of flame to block her flanks from attack, creating a tactical advantage for both herself and her allies. Any creature unwitting enough to attempt to cross the barrier will feel the full force of these flames as they advance to their ruin.

General Information

Blaze: +1% damage per level
  • Receives synergy from :
Warmth: +4% damage per level
Inferno: +1% damage per level

Fire Wall creates a wall of fire in a horizontal line in front of the caster. Its damage per second and its length increase with more levels. Fire Wall is arguably the highest damaging spell in the Sorceress' arsenal. It deals massive damage, and if used correctly it can take down most foes instantly or fairly quickly.

Due to its low synergies, Fire Wall is often utilized in builds (most notably the Fire Wall Sorceress) since it can be easily combined with other skills without having to sink too many points into associated skills to maximize its damage potential. However, even though it doesn't synergize well, it is still incredibly powerful, especially with Fire Mastery. The only problems are its rather limited mobility, its cooldown, and high Mana cost, and the fact that swift enemies and human players can often avoid it with ease.

Multiple Fire Walls stack damage, though not too many can be stacked since there's a short cooldown and the flames dissipate after a while. Using Fire Wall on the other side of valleys, rivers and other obstacles can cause monsters to bunch up and take heavy damage. Laying down some Fire Walls, then leading monsters into it is a useful defensive application of Fire Wall. Another tactic to keep monsters within the wall is to run in circles around the areas of Fire Wall, until the Monsters within die. Monsters distracted by minions or party members can fall easy prey to Fire Walls. This works especially well with something like a Golem which attracts monsters. Some fast and erratically moving monsters, however, will generally avoid the Fire Wall.
