Magma Mist is created only when a cave-in penetrates magma. It is yellow in color. Magma mist is extremely deadly and will generally instantly kill any creature it touches that isn't FIREIMMUNE or otherwise heat resistant. Though somewhat unpredictable, it can be useful in complex traps and defense.
Similarly to magma itself, magma mist is called lava mist when it occurs outside.
"Magma mist" is not the steam generated by adding water and magma together, which is harmless.
