Fire Nova is a shaman ability learned at level 44 for those with the Enhancement specialization. It is an AoE attack, using any existing effects on nearby targets to trigger a flame wave effect from each affected enemy. The flames strike all enemies within 10 yards.
Modified by Edit
- Highly useful in raid situations involving lots of trash mobs, especially paired with other area of effect/multi-target abilities.
- In boss fights when using more long-term totems, Fire Nova can still be used to pull out some extra damage. It not as mana-efficient, however, and may best be used when the shaman has been knocked back or is otherwise unable to deal steady damage the typical way.
