Fiery Breath deals Fire Damage to enemies within a 10 meter radius in front of you, and applies fire damage over time. Noxious Breath changes the cost to use Stamina and the damage from fire to poison, as well as reducing your targets' Physical Resistance. Or you can choose Engulfing Flames, which will increase the target's vulnerability to other flame attacks, either from you or other players.


  • The Noxious Breath morph was added in Update 10, replacing ON-icon-skill-Ardent Flame-Burning Breath.png Burning Breath, which dealt Flame Damage instead of Poison Damage.
  • Engulfing Flames is a recommended morph for the Inferno Dragon build, while Noxious Breath is recommended for Venomous Dragon.
