Blackfire torch isn't even worth it even on single target nukes either. It's so inefficient.

I think blackfire torch is only really effective on ap dps characters or heavy poke casters. Cass comes to mind the most for this. Vlad may also benefit except for the wasted stats, same problem with rumble. Really, it's a strange niche item.

It really only works against an HP-stacking enemy, such as a farmed Sion. Considering the amount of farm you get in a typical game of TT, it's hardly ever worth it. But it's shiny, it's new, and it's passive sounds goooooooood, so people are going to continue to buy it for a while.

I've learned something new that concerns Blackfire Torch and Singed: if you land a single-target spell first, any AoE or DoT damage will refresh the single-target damage, instead of refreshing it with the DoT/AoE damage. This means you can use throw first to do the 5% damage, and then use the poison to keep reapplying it, doing 1.666% damage instead of 0.833%.
