The goal here is to look at the ability Ignite Weapons and work out when we should be using it.
Not everyone does, but I always like to work out the averages for each attack against T3, T4, and T5. That’s because I consider T4 the baseline, so T3 and under is squishy and T5 and up is tough as nails.
These are the numbers for a single attack.
Then this is the bonus you get from Ignite Weapon. It’s only for a single attack.

Onslaught only works with melee attacks, so the ranged attacks don’t get the option. In basically every case the Ignite Weapons is better.

Of course, Onslaught works for two weapons, so the below just doubles the numbers.
Double Attack Bonus from Onslaught
Comparing them, the general rule is if you’re against T3 and have two actions then Onslaught is better, unless you have the Runefather with Bokaz in which case Ignite Weapon is always better.
