I haven't seen any of these items.... and I've played several characters. Maybe I just don't know what to look for.

I don't think random items should be required to survive... maybe that's just me.

Oh -- what about the "On Fire" effect -- is that damage already accounted for in the formula, or is there still an "echo" effect that goes on. Plus there's the critical factor. The spell might not...

We're really playing a numbers game here.
