Fiery Form or Pestilence for DoT Build?
Building my first fire toon and wonder which one is better and why.
Your thoughts?

Fire Form. SS PRE is a perfect compliment to an offensive build. You won't need an extra DoT when you've got one of the best AoEs and one of the best single target attacks in the game. The question will be defense (solved at level 26 with mindful reinforcement) and energy (which FireForm will help with more than Pestilence, given it's ability to cause clinging flames).

That's all I needed to know, thanks a lot.

I should note Pesitlence does have the special effect of inhibiting healing, but that would probably mean you'd take it as a second slotted passive for special cases (some PvP, certain high-level lairs). Even in the PvP case, if you're not talking about trying to take down a leader in stronghold, you're probably better off sneaking up on the healer and tagging them with with a conflag/heatwave combo. Archers, Munis and Force toons are better off with Pestilence since they don't have a passive with a straight damage boost.
