The Fire Mage shoots a fire projectile, identical to the Fire Elementals attack. Like most mage attacks it does 5 points of damage. He doesn't have any other means of attack, so circling and attacking him would be the best strategy in case of a fight. The Fire Mage is quite similar to the Water Mage, but his fire immunity makes him a far more dangerous foe. This mage is completely unharmed by fire arrows, mines, hot-plates and flames, making him more difficult to kill. But most of all, his ability to walk in lava, gives him the power to keep his distance in case of an attack. In other words the Fire Mage can not only try to kill Garrett, but will survive the hazards that would normally kill Garrett as well. This might be spectacular if nobody else could do it, but the ability to wade through lava is possessed by everyone except Garrett. All NPCs will survive as long as the lava does not reach their chest (which counts as drowning). In the same way, the Fire Mage is vulnerable to lava when unconscious. It is therefore possible to have a clueless Guard standing in a river of lava surrounded by "charred" Fire Mages.
