Tips and Details

  • Although it can be activated in mid-air, the fire burst doesn't occur until Elsword hits the ground, so it's not very useful for hitting airborne targets.
  • Burn status damage is dependent on your magic attack.
  • The number of hits depends on your distance from the mob as well as the size of the mob.

Old Version

Video Description
Between its initial release and the 06/27/2013 KR Patch, Sword Fire had a smaller area of effect and would not expand from the area of its initial impact.
