Just bought the game and loving it. On patch 1.013.

I'm not sure if this is a bug, but blowing up explosive barrels from a distance (as a fire mage) hurts me even if I'm quite far from any animation of explosion or fire. Is this intended behavior?

Yes it is. Depending on the intensity of the explosion, you can take damage even at some distance away. That's one of the great things about DC - you have to think twice about what you destroy.

Watch yourself as a fire mage, I've definitely killed many friends (and myself) by lighting everything on fire -especially those damn barrels that CAN kill you fifty feet away.

I appreciate the 'realism' of taking damage a certain radius away from the explosives -- something like a backdraft. However, I think there should be a visible indication of the distance that's affected, whether that's an actual fire or a heat wave animation of some sort. Otherwise the player has no idea what to avoid, and that causes frustration.

Yeah. I need to go update the effects to match the radius better.
