Ok, at lvl 16 I was getting 35 to 38 damage with Burning affliction. Very rarely resisted with -100 magic resistance check.
Somewhere heckling Fleven about updating quest info lol...

Hi, what sort of level of Conjuration do you need for this to become 'trivial'?

Mine 'trivved out' around 28-30 for my lvl 14 halfling druid. At least it seemed like it. didn't fizzle nearly as much.

Druids get this much sooner cause they are not as tough in melee as Rangers, and would be pretty good vs MOBs <25, but be warned fellow Rangers you need to get conjuration up in order to use this spell effectively and the only thing you have to help you is 'Dance of the Fireflies'. So if you are looking fwd to this DoT (not bad for Rangers @ 30 - 117 dmg over 9 ticks), then make sure you cast fireflies periodically on your way so you don't use up all your mana fizzling Swarm spells when you get it or have to waste a couple hours casting up Conj.

Another thing is that fireflies can only be done at night.
