Is the level 72 fire spell really worth it?

The detonate spell costs 4 pips and all it does is make and overtime damage effect do all its damage at once to an enemy, that's it nothing else.

Say an opponent might KO your wizard on the next turn. Your DOT will take him out, but not before he KOs you. In tight situations like these Detonate works. Also, you'll need to get Detonate if you want your level 75 spell, Backdraft.

Thank you for telling me what you can use detonate for, but I still think it needs to cost less pips.

I agree that it should cost less pips. This spell is just soo specifically used that the pip cost makes it ALMOST useless. It's one of those types of spells that requires a LOT of planning before use, and there's nothing wrong with that; it's just in MOST cases, it's a wasted spell/poor spell choice

My gear gives it to me and I just use it to get on my friends nerves in pvp

If it costs,lets say 2 pips, then fire school would have an upper hand. Lets say you did a full pip hound on a guy in pvp and if you use detonate the next round then all that dude gets is a single round to do a counter.Just my opinions
