  • The explosion has a significant startup time, taking about 4 seconds to go off. The trick is to lure your opponent into the explosion.
  • The fireball the player tosses deals damage.
  • The bigger and more powerful explosion will not trigger if the fireball hits the target directly.
  • Some enemies will seem curious or attracted and walk up to the fireball as it grows and then explodes.

      I don't think people are seeing the real potential of this spell. It's not designed for a 1v1 scenario which is what so many people are basing this on. This patch and dlc most noticeably being the new arenas is on team pvp. Having the ability to zone control a teammate in trouble or get an enemy off your back just ny standing in the grenade it gives you a few seconds window to plan a counter or otherwise recover.

        I tested Seething Chaos on a few mobs. One important thing to note is that a direct hit will cause the bigger and more damaging explosion not to trigger. I just lands like a regular fireball. Also the thralls ran up to growing ball as if curious. Pretty handy in PvE if many mobs do this. I compared the damage against the Chaos Bed Vestiges. *Harald Legion Knight* - Chaos Bed Vestiges: 824; Seething Chaos: 950; Seeth Chaos direct hit: 441. *Thrall* - CBV: 1024; Seething Chaos: 1208; SC Direct hit 550

          So this is what you do. You throw down. Some prism stones then throw this down they're like oh **** magic prism stone. They start throwing every prism stone they have down and then it's too late once they realize.

            in PVP if your opponent knows this is seething chaos its useless, with its very slow explosion time they almost always get out of the way. And in PVE faster enemies will move out of the way before it detonates.

              Just got this spell, potential seems great in pvp and pve since it wont aggro mobs if missed (does twice as much damage if it detonates) and it can be used as a zoning tool if placed at your feet, allowing for some breathing room since it wont hurt you.

                Just got it tonight, and looking forward to using it for some pvp. I think this spell could potentially rival, Vestiages/Chaos fireball, as being one of the most destructive pyro spells in pvp. Yeah I think it will have a steep learning curve, but seems to be similar to: Dark Souls 2's Lingering flame! Imo the best pvp spell in DkSls2 & the most versitile. In the hands of a good player you could wreck with that spell!! Looking forward to testing it out!

                  Only scrubs get hit by this on pvp. Even using this as a set up is a waste. Tried to use it and people tried to use it on me on arena. Only people who didn't know how this spell works or complete noobs fell for it.

                    So what about this... place a warmth, and then throw this under it. Enemy can come in to try and take your warmth, but then they have to deal with the glob?

                      As a pyromancer I really would like the demon's scar and the spell from the demon prince does anyone have a demon's scar they would trade me? I am willing to negotiate as far as the trade goes

                        Its a sort of fire trap, similar to profaned flame. It will be probably useless in PvE, but it could have some use in the Arena. Some combo trap with prfaned flame and chaotic flame
