- Ember slams the ground, creating a wave of fire that expands outwards to a radius of 5 / 10 / 12 / 15 meters, dealing 66 / 100 / 141 / 200 Heat damage with a 100% status chance to enemies that make contact with it, and pushing them back. A ring of fire 4 meters wide and 1 meter thick is also created and lasts for 9 / 12 / 15 / 20 seconds. Enemies that linger within the ring's flames are dealt 37 / 112 / 150 / 225 Heat damage per second.
