The Firestorm is best suited against groups or large, slow moving enemies, as landing a hit on small or agile enemies will be difficult. It also loses a significant amount of damage if an enemy simple walks out of the way, since the fireballs take some time to land. Similarly, the Firestorm suffers in enclosed spaces, as the fireballs will collide with ceilings and therefore be wasted.
+
Fireballs move slowly and take some time to land, and if used in confined spaces they may hit a wall or ceiling and disappear.
