Does sparkflint familiar benefit from conflagration passive skill? I know that sparkflint does not benefit from temporal flux skill as un-runed familiar and cannoneer familiar do.

Yes it does.

Conflagration is a Wizard passive skill, which causes fire damage to set enemies ablaze, increasing their damage taken for a short period of time.

And Temporal Flux is a Wizard passive skill, which adds a slowing effect to enemies the Wizard hits for Arcane spell damage.



Fire damage dealt to enemies applies a burning effect, increasing all damage done to them by 10% for 3 seconds.

Temporal Flux

Whenever you deal Arcane damage, enemies are slowed by 30% for 2 seconds.

The question is "Does the Sparkflint familiar deal fire damage, despite it not being listed on the tooltip", not about the passives themselves. – Raven Dreamer May 31 '12 at 1:51
I do not believe sparkflint to show any type of damage increase with conflagration. Therefore I do not believe it is considered fire damage. :( – Xenogious May 31 '12 at 6:12
Thats not the question, and he does benefit from it. – Maarten Kuilman Jun 1 '12 at 5:40
