Order Description

:  Grants a firetrail, 5% movement speed, and 1 damage for 6 seconds.

Shipping Method

:  Field-Found

Order Details

:  Found by killing a.. giant magma worm. Yes, you read that correctly.
After it died, it's body lay dormant but it's eyes seem to still look around, watching. Removal of the eye showed that it may be a parasite that attaches to the worm itself; the worm grants it protection, while the eye gives it the vision it needs.

Character Synergies[]

This item works best with melee characters such as Mercenary and Loader, as close range characters will have more chances to deal damage to enemies nearby with the trail of fire this item creates upon activation.

Item Synergies[]


  • The fire trails of Burning Witness and Fireman's Boots do not stack with each other and only one trail appears. It is unconfirmed which item works. However, the movement speed bonus of Burning Witness still applies whenever the conditions are met.
  • The relationship between the Magma Worm and its eye described in the item log is mutualistic, rather than parasitic, like the log suggests, as both organisms benefit from their relationship.
