Incinerate

From Diablo 4 Wiki

Incinerate is a Sorcerer skill from the Core skill tree. Its features are:

Grants Player Exploits Condition
Fire Dmg N/A
Burning Dmg (DoT)
Immobilizes (CC)
- Dmg Received
Core
Pyromancy
Channeled

'Grants Player' means this skill creates this condition i.e it could make a target Vulnerable that other skills can take advantage of. 'Exploits Condition' means this skill takes advantage of a condition, not necessarily of its own making. So for example another skill might Stun and this skill could take advantage of that.
