Cinder Shoes

When you use something like Burning Breath, Dragonborn Fire Breath, or Scorching Ray, you can proc a Burn status effect. If this happens while you have the Cinder Shoes equipped this will then give you Heat. You’ll take a small bit of damage, but over time this will passively ramp up the Heat resource. Then you can consume it for a boost to your fire damage for every turn of Heat. This is very good on specific builds like Draconic Bloodline Sorcerer or Evocation Wizard which rely on fire damage early with spells like Scorching Ray, Buring Breath and Fireball.
