Description

Summons a multi-headed beast of flame to reduce your enemies to ashes.

It is possible to have 6 Hydras summoned at a time, and each three-headed
Hydra
lasts for 10 seconds. Individual Hydras aren't that effective, but when several of them are firing at once, the damage adds up quickly.

Some skill is necessary for placing Hydras. It's best if several of them can concentrate their fire on the same monster, so casting a bunch of them in a row to one side is usually the best tactic, instead of simply popping them up all throughout a mass of enemies, where their shots will be dispersed into numerous targets.

It's best to pick an alternate skill to use after summonig all the Hydras and until they despawn. Firewall or
Meteor
work or if you want to diversify your damage
Frozen Orb
, Blizzard, or
Nova
work well.

Lore

This skill enables the Sorceress to summon a beast of pure flame from the core of the world.

The Hydra have been allies of the Zann Esu women for generations, owing their freedom in ancient times to the actions of the renowned Sorceress, Habacalva.

They never fail to answer a call from a proven Sorceress, and stand ready to spit bolts of scorching magma at her enemies.

I wish this skill had more up time and did more damage. Would be slightly more viable that way.

Hydras, despite considered minion-type in game code, do benefit from +x% Fire Damage and -x% Fire Resistance (such as provided by Rainbow Facet).

The unique paladin shield

Oskill.

Oskills can be used by any class, but the skill level bonus is limited to 3 levels for the native class. Oskill levels can be increased like native skill levels, including "+skill (native class only)" bonuses.

Even though they only last 10 seconds, Hydras are minions and cannot proc Slain Monsters Rest In Peace
