An effective spell combo would be: Fire Absorption Shield (Absorbs damage from explode, Immune to Burning) Avatar of Fire (+25% Fire Resistance, Immune to Burning) Self-Immolation (+25% Fire Resistance, creates fire surface around you) Explode with impunity!
That is questionable, the setup costs too much AP and you don't want to be immune to burning, you want to heal from burning. Just raise your natural fire res to 110 and start with Self-Immolation, then go boom. Profit.
But you can use a fire shield on an ally in range to save his/her ***.
