Level: Clr 8, Drd 7, FvS 8
Spell Point Cost: 25
Components: SomaticIcon tooltip.pngSomatic: A somatic component is a measured and precise movement of the hand. You cannot cast spells that require this component if you cannot move causing arcane spell failure resulting in a ruined spell. Spells without a somatic component may be used with disregard to Arcane Spell Failure chance. Note - that characters make the same arm gestures for most spells in DDO, so you can't tell which spells require this component by watching your character's animations., VerbalIcon tooltip.pngVerbal: A verbal component is a spoken incantation. You cannot cast spells that require this component if you cannot act or speak. This has no gameplay applications in DDO, as all characters can always speak and there are no effects which prevent you from doing so.

Description:

A Fire Storm causes an area to become shot through with sheets of roaring flame, causing 1d3+3 fire damage per caster level to targets in its area.

Notes:

Fire storm has a maximum caster level of 20. Its area of effect is a little larger than a Delayed Blast Fireball. The spell itself has a long cast time, and even after the spell is cast it still has about a half second delay before damage occurs.

Targeting is weird. If you have a target selected, Fire storm will trigger right in front of you, it will not be cast at your target. However, if you have no target selected and are targeting with mouse-look, Fire storm has an infinite range. you can cast further than the effect will even be displayed. Note, however, that mobs will not spawn until you are close to them, so it can't be used to kill mobs from across the map without first causing the mobs to load by being near them. (so it can't be used to kill mobs in explorer areas without running to them first)
