|This spell creates a short burst of flame.|
Flame Tongue is a level 1 Conjurations/Fire Magic spell which spits a gout of flame at a single target. At low spell power it only has a range of 2 (although Fire Elementalists will start with sufficient power for it to be range 3), but its range rises to 5 as you improve your skill. It has a higher to-hit chance than the level 2 spell Throw Flame, and comparable damage until high spellpower.
Its maximum spellpower is 25 for damage and accuracy, and 40 for range.
Fire Elementalists start with this spell memorized.
In 0.10 the range of Flame Tongue was increased from 1-4 to 2-5.
