|Description:||The Phoenix's Pyre is a departure from the subtle effects many associate with the Bardly magic. When voiced, the spell will ignite a firestorm around you to consume your enemies.

With Will of Winter
You give sudden voice to the frigid chanting in your thoughts, as you release a duet of elemental fire and water into the piece. The opening syllables quickly intensify into a more savage theme.
With barely a pause for breath, you neatly segue to the verse of the Phoenix's Pyre. Your scales warm tangibly as you bite off each of the words with a fierceness that seems to incite the very air around you to anger as a conflux of flame and frost is born about you.
- Area effect pulsing fire/impact damage, weighted towards fire.
- Being under the effects of Will of Winter will change it to fire/cold damage weighted equally.
- Both versions cause naphtha to flare up when the spell hits a body part that is doused with naphtha. Both also increase the duration and damage of the ignited naphtha.
- The bard will appear in the room look as "<Player> who is surrounded by swirling flames."
- When using the Will of Winter form you will instead appear as "<Player> who is surrounded by an elemental maelstrom."
- Causes charges of endangering the public when used in justice areas.
