Notes

Questionmark-medium.png This section is flagged for a fact check!

Fire Elementals deal entirely fire based damage, and are themselves immune to fire. They have a mana bar which regenerates very slowly. They have two spells, a fire nova, that burns enemies in its radius for approximately 700 damage at 70, and a single-target Fire Blast. Because of their limited mana pool and poor regeneration, it should not be expected that the elemental cast either spell more than 4 times per summon. For the rest of its life, the elemental follows its target and punches them, dealing a varying amount of fire damage. The elemental also has a fiery aura, which burns nearby enemies for small amounts of damage every 2 seconds. Fire elementals are very fragile, and cannot survive attacks even from normal mobs. This totem is best used when all adds are dealt with.

The Fire Elemental benefits from 55% of its master's spell power.

Tips and tactics

The fire elemental can be used against Nethermancer Sepethrea in Mechanar, as it is a valid target for her fire elementals to chase and is immune to them.

The Fire Elemental is great for hard burns on boss fights and can often put out a fair amount of extra damage.

Speculation

Questionmark-medium.png
This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

It is not known if either +spell power gear or Elemental passives that affect critical effects benefit the elemental. Considering the fire elemental is not benefited by any party-wide abilities, and seems to be the "pet" of the totem, it is doubtful.
