- Range: Self
- Target or Area: You, and see below.

- Your eyes burn like hot coals, allowing you to set objects or foes alight with a glance.
- As a standard action as long as this spell's effects persist, you may direct your Burning Gaze against a single creature within 30 feet of your location. Targeted creatures must succeed at a save as described above or take (Circle 1 damage): 1d6 points of damage per character level (max 4d6 at character level 4) points of fire (energy, common) damage, and gain the Burned condition. Creatures who succeed on the save take half the initial fire damage and are not afflicted with the Burned condition.
- Note that this spell does not grant an actual gaze attack - foes and allies are not in danger of catching on fire simply by meeting your gaze or looking at you. This spell has no effect on unattended objects.
- This spell lays an arcane charge on its target(s), depending on the caster who is casting the spell. If the targets are something other than you or another creature (such as an object or area), the spell lays an arcane charge on you, the caster. Targets which already have an arcane charge present must choose which to keep if the new spell has the same charge type. Only one arcane charge can ever be present on a target at a time.
