Blaze is the predecessor to the Sorceress' highest damaging fire-based skill, Fire Wall. Although useful in the early stages of the game, this skill becomes less effective and a little more dangerous to use as enemies become tougher to kill and deal more damage.
Once cast, Blaze creates a wall of fire behind the Sorceress for every step she takes. Most effective in small rooms where enemies will be forced to follow you, as well as situations where a Sorceress needs to escape from pursuing enemies, Blaze is not a very direct offensive move. Not many players choose to specialize in Blaze, but it is not necessarily useless if unlocked early: For example, Andariel can be kited and taken down with this skill due to her negative Fire Resistance and the layout of her chambers.
Baal displays this spell in the final cinematic of Diablo II.
