Description

One of the new patch 2.4 Runewords, Flickering Flame uses a 3 socketed
Helm
base and seems suited to Act 3 Mercs, and Fire Druids/Sorcs.

As of 2.5, this runeword is often paired with
Flame Rift
, as the runeword's
Resist Fire
aura will offset the resistance penaly of the charm and the runeword's -10-15% to Enemy Fire Resistance will augment the charm's Sundering property.

Through 2.4 PTR testing this also works extremely well on an Auradin setup.

Resist Fire
Aura (85% at lvl 4 - 106% at lvl 8) can compensate the lack of Fire Resist from Spirit.

Currently theory crafting a Martial Arts Assassin build that specialized in
Tiger Strike
with
Dragon Tail
Finisher. Those familiar with
Dragon Tail
know that it takes the attack’s physical damage and adds to it a fire component aoe explosion equal to a multiple of the physical damage. An attack with 7,000 physical damage can equal 50,000 damage or more in aoe
Fireball
like explosion. With
Amplify Damage
first reducing a monsters physical resistance and a sunder charm plus facets, Phoenix, and or Infinity lowing a monsters fire resistance, the possible damage outcome can be in the hundreds of thousands. If you use Flickering Flame as your
Helm
, you completely offset the fire res issues of a sundering charm, and gain a big boost to
Dragon Tail
since it’s a fire based attack. Couple these with dual Phoenix and a the reaper’s toll merc, or Phoenix
Lacerator
and Infinity merc to trounce even p8 baddies in a single
Dragon Tail
finisher, regardless of players count — uniques and bosses excluded.

Flickering Flame was ladder only during Patch 2.4 and Patch 2.5 (Ladder Season 1 & 2). Since Patch 2.6 (Ladder Season 3) it is possible to create Flickering Flame in non-ladder.
