|Releases penetrating bolts of fire from the caster in every direction.|
Starburst is powerful enough to set trees on fire.
Starburst is a strong AOE spell, valuable when surrounded thanks to its ability to target every space around you (and much further)! Moving in a way to keep monsters in direct line of fire is helpful if you don't have or want to use Fireball.
Be careful around crystal walls when using Starburst. As the bolts always travel in straight lines in all 8 directions, it's all too easy to accidentally bounce multiple bolts back at yourself.
