That might just work, unless there is anything that has red in the nameplate near who you actually want to hit with spinning fire blossom in the first place.

you can't aim something that randomly arcs. This move needs to be a skill shot or a heat missile. Pick one Blizzard.

Glyph it.

^^ no it isn't. It will arc at times, like the OP said. It doesn't always shoot straight. I've had the move make a complete 90 degree turn toward a random pet.

Heat missiles would pick up the first "heat" object it senses in its path and latch on, like most cases someones pet. The glyph makes it locked on your target and removes the root making it pointless.

I've always thought that it should only hit your target, but you still need to aim it.

I'd love to see an example of this, because I have never had it "arc" before. Then again, I play DOTA games quite a bit, so I am use to having to skill shot.

I'm gonna blow your mind right here.

Go duel a hunter. Have him put his pet on you, and now try to SFB him while you're both running.

It'll hit the pet behind you almost every time.

Divine Star is a skillshot.
SFB is not really one.

The root is great...

but when you can dish out massive critical SFB's when glyphed (until the patch), why would you want to root when you can just blow them up with 100% accuracy?
