Warlock Solar 3.0 Changes

  • Heat Rises
    • Added behavior: Consuming your grenade now also releases a burst of Cure x2 around you, healing you and your nearby allies. Consuming a Healing Grenade increases the strength of the burst to Cure x3 and consuming a Touch of Flame Healing Grenade provides Restoration as an additional benefit.
  • Icarus Dash
    • Added behavior: While airborne, rapidly defeating targets with your Super or any weapon Cures you. 
  • Celestial Fire
    • Each Celestial Fire projectile now applies 10 Scorch stacks. This is increased to 15 stacks with Ember of Ashes equipped. 

Since the Solar 3.0 release, the community has had mixed reviews of the rework. Titans will finally see some viability to the Burning Maul, and Warlocks are poised to become healing gods once more.
