Overview[]

Fiery Aura is one of the powersets. It is a Tanker primary power set in City of Heroes and a Brute and Stalker secondary power set in City of Villains, and as of Issue 12 a Scrapper and Sentinel secondary power set in City of Heroes.

You can engulf yourself in protective flames. Fiery Aura offers superior resistance to Fire damage, but weak resistance to Cold damage and no protection to Knockback. Fiery Aura is the most offensive of the defensive Power Sets, offering some damage output.

Unlike most stealth powers, Hide can be used at the same time as other Concealment powers, giving you even greater stealth capability. No Endurance cost.
