    I am having difficulty reproducing this issue internally. May need secret sauce to understand exactly what you're doing to cause this to occur.

    It seems to only be this spell. I am casting it in Serpent's watch in multiple locations.

    Mind if I take over your character to see if it's possible for it to be specific to your character?

    Oho. Yes indeedy. Immediate repro on YOUR character. Now I want to know what's different with your character that's causing it. Can you think of anything special with your equipment or setup? Special stats that might impact that spell? Or gear that the average player may not have on them?

    With your permission, going to run some tests by systematically stripping your character down and finding out what piece of gear is causing it to crash

    Sorry. This doesn't normally take this long. You have a very interesting case on your hands. Still testing.

    No worries. I normally run on beautiful settings but I changed it recently to fastest on QA to see if that made my scene loading quicker. Not sure if I put it back to beautiful

    This is the perfect situation to have Chris supply you with a microphone so we can talk through it on discord!

    Figured it out. Don't play on Beautiful. The Ring of Fire is too beautiful, and it will make you crash. Suggest Good or lower as a safe bet. Writing up now.

    If you're interested, I'd be interested to know if other spells will crash the client when played on Beautiful. ;)
