We want to make Entzünden
spread something the player has agency over, and first experimented with the past system of making Feuerschlag
spread it. However, because of the importance of using Feuerschlag
very frequently, we've seen feedback that this creates a lot of tension and still makes it difficult to control when you and don't want Ignite to spread.
In the next alpha build, we're going to try letting Phönixflammen
fill this role, as a baseline spell for Fire Mages. This gives Phönixflammen
a unique function and identity as a core spell, as well as allowing for more choice over when to spread Entzünden
. If we continue with the change, we'll look into a new talent to replace Phönixflammen
in upcoming builds.
