The spell ‘conflagrate’ according to the tooltip should calculate its damage based on the damage of the warlocks ‘immolate’ spell. I have tested and confirmed that conflagrate is not adding the damage boost to immolate when the talent ‘molten core’ is taken. The molten core talent states that it extends the duration of your immolate, which causes more ticks of damage therefore more damage per immolate.
To reproduce this simply
- Use a talent build missing three points in molten core that has talented into conflagrate.
- Cast immolate then conflagrate.
- Spend the three talent points into molten core and cast them both again, taking note of the damage of conflagrate.
In conclusion molten core should increase the damage of conflagrate if the player reads the tooltips of the spells and talents, however at the moment it is not which is very confusing from a player perspective. This bug makes it very difficult to experiment with talent builds when the tooltips aren’t aligning with the actual game behavior.
