Honest question from someone who's never taken it. Playing a FVS (2nd time around), and it seems like a decent option given my gear and PRE bonus to fire and untyped spellpower, though admittedly I wouldn't take it before divine punishment, slay living or greater command, the other major 5th lvl spell options. Yet, I've only seen negative comments (in passing) about it in the forums. What's the problem? Saves out of whack?
Thanks in advance.
