Lava glob

Lava glob is a creature ability used to hurl molten lava at their target. Characters must make a visible d100 roll to avoid the lava. If struck, they take immediate impact critical damage, followed by fire damage over time as their armor heats up. It takes some time afterwards for the armor to cool.

Casting Minor Water (903) at the armor (or at the person wearing it, if cast from defensive/guarded stance) can help cool it down.

Creatures capable of performing this ability include:

You mentally give a sigh of relief as you remember that the Goddess Lorminstra owes you a favor.

Example of cooling down armor with water:
