New World Fire Staff Patch Note Changelog

Below is a running list of changes for each patch for the Fire Staff in New World. The most recent patch is listed first and then in descending order by date.

Winter Convergence Patch - December 16, 2021
  • Burnout: Updated how this ability interacts with gravity to prevent it from being used to traverse up steep inclines.
  • Meteor Shower: Fixed an issue that allowed this skill to deal damage to targets through Fort Gates and War Camp gates.
  • Watch It Burn: Fixed an issue that prevented this passive ability from functioning.

Into the Void Patch - November 18th, 2021
  • Pillar of Fire
    • Increased damage scaling from134% to 170%.
    • Fixed an issue where Pillar of Fire targets the caster when activated using the ability key.
    • Fixed an issue where Pillar of Fire failed to trigger Runes of Helios when activated using the ability key.
    • Fixed an issue that caused Pillar Of Fire to hit twice against targets near the edge of the effect radius.
  • Meteor Shower
    • Fixed an issue where Runes of Helios triggered on targeting Meteor Shower rather than on casting it.
  • Fireball
    • Added additional clarity that the Fireball ability is not able to crit. Previously it would show the crit damage color, but not actually deal increased damage. It will no longer show orange damage numbers, and an additional tooltip was added.

  • Passives
    • Clear Casting: Reduced damage bonus from 10% to 5%.

    • Pyromania: Reduced damage bonus from 20% to 15%.
    • Kindle: Fixed an issue causing Kindle to increase buff duration by the incorrect amount.
    • Reheat: Reduced the time (without activating an ability) to trigger Reheat from 6s to 4s.
    • Updated the Singe and Watch it Burn passives to mix up the functionality:
      • Singe went from inflicting Burn on critical hits to triggering Burn on light attacks.
      • Watch it Burn now inflicts burn on critical hits from abilities only.
