  • Very situational; mobs can easily interrupt, it pulls threat, and has a higher mana cost. Mainly useful in instances for AoE.


Rain of Fire is an arcane spell used by conjurers, mages, sorcerers, wizards, and warlocks. Originally a spell created by the Conjurers of Azeroth, and other casters, it was later used by warlocks.

This is a very powerful spell that combines the natures of flame and water. It calls forth the essence of fire and delivers it through massive thunderheads of vapor and brimstone, creating an actual firestorm. This spell is very destructive, and will cause damage to any foes and buildings in its sphere of influence. Use this spell with care, for the rain of fire knows no friends. [1] Small meteorites rain from the sky, exploding on impact and burning all in their wake .[2] Meteorites deal impact and fire damage to creatures, ignite and batter objects. [3]
