Way of Light
Scorch - Shoot a flaming projectile in your direction. Does 1/2 a heart of damage.
Cast Time: Instant
Cooldown: 2 seconds
An instant cast spell is a welcome thing for a desperate mage. In addition, Scorch's short cooldown will help you out if you're being pursued. Naturally, you'll want a team-mate who can keep your foes busy while you set the battlefield ablaze. If you're all alone, take Flame Wisp as your secondary and learn to swing that staff.
