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.
