  • Legendary Version:
    • Forced Affix: Double Stack
      • "Applies 2 stacks of damage over time effects instead of 1."

Synergies[]

  • This weapon is best used as a supporting tool. As a very accessible and effective means of setting enemies on fire, it synergizes nicely with affixes related to fire damage or oil.
    • This weapon also synergizes very well with the Oiled Sword IconOiled Sword.

Notes[]

  • Affixes such as "+30% damage on slowed targets" apply to the projectile as well as the inflicted burn status but not the fire it spreads on the ground.
  • Firebrands sacrifices ranged capability and defence for a powerful area-of-effect. This weapon favors hit-and-run strategies, and a reliance on synergies.
  • This weapon is a viable alternative to the Fire Grenade IconFire Grenade, and generally does slightly more damage.

Trivia[]

  • The handle sprite on the icon resembles that of the Torch IconTorch.
  • The sprite of a thrown Firebrand is identical to that of the Torch IconTorch's icon.

  • 2.4: Base DPS increased from 8 to 31.
