Moonfire is a level 3 druid DoT spell.


Tips and tactics

  • It's often considered an excellent choice for pulling, regardless of the druid's specialization due to its instant cast and long lasting DoT.
  • If an enemy is at low health you can finish them off by spamming several Moonfire or [Sunfire] in a row. This is low DPS, but can be done on the move to a fleeing enemy.
