How to get Ember’s Purge in BL3

Usage & Description

Ember’s Purge is an incredibly effective weapon against almost all enemies, especially flesh tones, as the lava pool effect deals extremely high damage, and can be used to annihilate multiple enemies at the same time. This comes at the cost of limited effectiveness against enemies with armor or shields with its fixed element and lack of a dual-element mode. As the Ember’s Purge relies on its lava pool to deal most of the damage, it is ineffective against flying enemies and in areas (slopes in particular) where the pool cannot spawn.
