, which applies the secondary debuff of Flame Wall to the enemies.

The primary and secondary debuffs of Flame Wall can stack. But enemies can only have one copy of the primary (or secondary) debuff, which only the strongest version of that debuff would damage the enemies.

The two debuffs have different in-game descriptions. The primary states "Fire Damage while inside a Flame Wall.", while the secondary debuff states "extra Fire Damage from a Flame Wall.".
