Useful Info

Salamander stormcallers are unusual pyromancers, summoning flame clouds or hitting you with weak fire spells, but also chanting for a few rounds to unleash a Fire Storm. Salamander stormcallers' chant does not need to be continuous; they only need to try to cast Fire Storm at their target three times for it to trigger. They can be found in the Vaults.

Spells

Spell set I
Slot1 Fire Storm (8d12 / 8d11) Wizard flag

Tips & Tricks

  • They are very resilient to fire, and vulnerable to cold.
  • Their Fire Storm spell cuts through much of your fire resistance, so no character can truly ignore its effects. However, it takes them three attempts to cast. During that time, if you can kill or disable the caster, the spell will fizzle. Leaving their line of sight is also quite effective at negating the spell.
