Wildfire no longer grants Molten Strike additional projectiles or area of effect. Instead, it now allows Molten Strike projectiles to chain and gives them +1 chain, but halves the number of projectiles created.
Some of Path of Exile’s “threshold jewels” encourage different playstyles for the skills they interact with. Others just buff the skill. We’re slowly moving towards the former type, making changes to existing threshold jewels that feel mandatory for their skill. Wildfire used to provide a large, almost-free boost to Molten Strike’s damage. It has now been completely redesigned to create a new playstyle for Molten Strike, covering much more area with bouncing magma balls but dealing lower single target damage. Molten Strike’s damage has been buffed to compensate for the loss of old Wildfire. The distance travelled by its projectiles also properly scales with projectile speed now, letting you control their spread as much as you like.
