Scorching Ray Skill Gem Mechanics

did anyone stop to think about bosses like atziri that cannot be affected by elemental status??? how are you supposed to kill her using this skill if it burning dmg? is it like rf?? does it deal fire dmg high enough to kill or do we need that burning stacks to kill??

Atziri has the modifier Cannot Be Ignited. Like RF and Searing Bond, Scorching Ray does not ignite. It instead applies the burning debuff directly. As such, it will work against Atziri the same way RF and Searing Bond do.

For all totemists here - give a little think about this skill targeting with current AI.
Target closest enemy - turn to the next closest enemy (which can be like 180 degrees from previous) - target next again... Considering that turnrate is dependent upon cast speed (and we all know that totems don't really shine here with their cast speed debuff) we'll need to see the real turnrate after release. But I have pessimistic feelings.
And as already have been mentioned few times selfcast seemd very fragile without leech and with all cons of standing still. Soul strike +3 bow ES-build seems possible but still...
Permanently sorry for bad English :D

Well, already worthless as a main clearing skill. All you can probably do with this is drop it as a totem on bosses to strip fire resistance while you fireball away.
Ugh. The fire res debuff has to be massive. Don't forget it's a DoT. So no fire pen and no inquisitor. No on hit stuff either. Equilibrium though.

You can't leech with DoT though. So it'll be stronger than incinerate but will offer no survivability at all. You'll be even more of a sitting duck than SRS, because you're a lot more motivated to keep your attack going instead of running away and firing again for a short time from a safe distance.

The only real advantage this skill has is being unreflectable.
would try for something like that: (chieftain) poeurl.com/PEA or (juggernaut) poeurl.com/PEz + "The Searing Touch", or "Rise of the Phoenix" + rF
