Burst Fire


From Diablo Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Burst Fire is a rune effect in Multishot, a Hatred-spending Demon Hunter skill.

This rune effect retains the base skill, and adds a shock pulse that adds additional damage to nearby enemies. Since nearby enemies are often the hardest to hit with this skill (since it's best used against large groups, and should hit as many monsters as possible for best effect), adding special extra damage to hit them can be helpful.

Also, and obviously, the nearby enemies are the ones that are most dangerous and that you want to kill first.

Skill Rune Effects[edit]

See the Multishot rune effects article for thorough descriptions of all five rune effects in this skill, including screenshots, videos, and strategy tips.
