My guess as to how Flame Orb will be tuned for either AoE or single target? Make it so it causes a certain amount of damage...every tendril that goes out reduces the remaining damage potential. So against a boss with no adds, the boss gets the full brunt of the spell, but against a pack of mobs, it is spread out amongst them.

Here is my idea on how to scale Flame Orb for single versus AoE.You ever fight the Blood Princes? [Of course, your a mage, so you've killed them and every other zombie in ICC. = ) ]Now tell me. What happens if empowered flame orb hits its target without being kited. Insta-death right? So lets say flame orb wizzes over a pack of mobs. It will do what it normally does, spread tendrils of scorching energy at anyone unfortunate enough to be underneath it. However, a talented Flame Orb is said to explode on impact. In this way, it could be talented to explode when it 'hits' a boss (similiar to how Deep Freeze does damage only to bosses), dealing massive, single target, damage.Whaddya think?
