        Best skill in the game. Lets you set your sword on fire so you can follow up a oil + flame vent on a boss into 3 hits of setting the boss on fire for big health damage. Do that twice a phase and they'll be at half health making poise break easy.

            what are the pre requisites? I cannot find this info anywhere. there is no way to know exactly which skills you need to get this last one. it's incredibly annoying.
