Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

Fire Mind is a passive item.

Effect[ | ]

    • Explosions do Isaac's current tear damage, in addition to the tear's hit.
    • (except in Repentance) The fires deal 22 damage per tick.
    • (in Repentance) Each fire deals up to 4 ticks of damage: 1st tick deals 23 damage, 2nd tick 17.3 damage, and 3rd and 4th tick 11.5 damage.
      • (in Repentance) Fires can block projectiles, up to 4 times, each time getting smaller.
        • Isaac cannot take damage from the flame, but can still take damage from the explosion.
  • (except in Rebirth) Isaac gives a wide glow lighting up dark areas, such as those under the effects of the Curse of DarknessCurse of Darkness or the Boss Dark One ingameDark One's attacks.

Notes[ | ]

  • The explosion effect chance depends on the luck stat, and the formula used to determine the chance is:
    • At base Luck (0), the chance is 10%, maxing out at 100% at 12.86 Luck.
  • An exploding tear does not set either the hit enemy or anything in the blast range on fire.
  • Explosive and burning damage is equal to Isaac's current damage stat.
  • The flame will transform HopperHoppers into Flaming HopperFlaming Hoppers.
