I have a couple of those nervestaves and I've been debating internally for a while which type of flares I'd like to eventually get for them. The obvious choice for a while seemed to be RotFlares, but upon closer inspection, I'm uncertain of their efficacy. Sure, they'll flare every time with enough necro lore, but their overall damage doesn't seem to be phenomenal. Plus, they only work on creatures that have bodies capable of being diseased.

So, if cost is not an issue, what do ya'll say is the "best" flare? I've left the term "best" intentionally vague because I'd like to hear your opinions on both damage/death-inducing flares as well as disabling flares, etc. In that regard, I suppose "best" means the most efficient hunting instrument, where the goals are killing and not being killed.
