|Description:||Fire Rain is one of the most impressive spells of destruction in the Warrior Mage's repertoire. It creates a burning cloud of ash which will rain down blazing balls of flame over an entire area. The fiery droplets are about the size of a child's fist, and are extremely hot when flying through the air. Upon impact, they tend to disintegrate in a blast of ash, which usually snuffs any flammable objects before they can truly catch fire -- usually. Caution should still be exercised nonetheless. Bear in mind that if you use Fire Rain in a city, you will be charged with public endangerment!|
|Effect:||Impact damage, Fire damage, AoE multistrike.|
|Example Messaging:||You gesture.
Swirls of ash, dust and vapor begin to erupt from the ground as the temperature quickly increases. Roundtime: 3 sec.
A column of deep grey ash suddenly explodes skyward with an ominous rumble, darkening the immediate area!
The ground shudders slightly as a dark column-like cloud spreads out, mushrooming in all directions from its center. Swirling cinders begin to drift lazily downward from this pyroclastic cloud as it swells in size.
With the dull roar of unnatural thunder, a pyroclastic ash cloud begins to release a moaning shower of blistering balls of fire!
Balls of blazing fire continue to descend from a pyroclastic ash cloud, each hurtling down with explosive force!
The descent of fist-sized flames from the sky changes into the pattering of small, candle-sized droplets as the ash cloud slowly ceases its deluge.
The last of the candle-sized droplets cease, and the ash cloud grows deathly silent. A few harmless embers fall now and again, leaving the acrid scent of sulphuric ash as the only real memory of the hellish onslaught.
A pyroclastic ash cloud thins out and dissipates completely.

To the north, blazing balls of fire begin to drop from the sky!
To the north, the rain of fire begins to slowly slacken!
The ash cloud to the north quiets and darkens, its hellish rain of fire halted.
