    It wouldn't work that way for rogues because blade flurry never double dipped like combustion did. If the boss is taking 33% more damage then blade flurries damage is reduced by 25% and the bosses damage multiplier is completely negated.
    This is how it worked in Cata but no longer. It did work as you described on Gara at the start but got hotfixed, there's a blue somewhere about it. spreading combustion is always good for us but it no longer matters if we spread it off a target taking increased damage or not, it just gets reduced.

    As proof, my spread combustion off a leg onto the body from last Wed:

    [19:57:51.089] Summerwind casts Combustion on Garalon's Leg
    [19:57:51.289] Summerwind Combustion Garalon's Leg 172724
    [19:57:51.595] Summerwind casts Inferno Blast on Garalon's Leg
    [19:57:51.628] Garalon's Leg afflicted by Combustion from Summerwind
    [19:57:51.722] Summerwind Inferno Blast Garalon's Leg *117073*
    [19:57:52.036] Garalon afflicted by Combustion from Summerwind
    [19:57:52.328] Summerwind Combustion Garalon's Leg 31796
    [19:57:52.733] Summerwind Combustion Garalon *31191*
    [19:57:53.019] Summerwind Combustion Garalon's Leg 31796
    [19:57:53.407] Summerwind Combustion Garalon 15141
    [19:57:53.712] Summerwind Combustion Garalon's Leg 31796
    [19:57:54.119] Summerwind Combustion Garalon 15141
    [19:57:54.379] Summerwind Combustion Garalon's Leg *65499*
    [19:57:54.820] Summerwind Combustion Garalon *31190*
    [19:57:55.084] Summerwind Combustion Garalon's Leg 31796
    [19:57:55.518] Summerwind Combustion Garalon 15141
    [19:57:55.756] Summerwind Combustion Garalon's Leg 31796
    [19:57:56.163] Summerwind Combustion Garalon 15141
    [19:57:56.458] Summerwind Combustion Garalon's Leg *1* (O: 65499)
    [19:57:56.846] Summerwind Combustion Garalon 15141

    Ticks about 50 % on the body, got reduced :P

    I edited my post before I noticed your response, but those ticks only got reduced by half, not by 75%, so it would still be advantageous to combust a target that is taking increased damage unless the damage of combustion is specifically coded so that it does not double dip on damage multipliers.

    I have to admit my understanding of exactly how combustion works isn't as good as I would like it to be.

    Me too oO I thought it would just spread with the current combustion value on the leg to the body. That's why I assumed it would work the same way on Windlord. Maybe I should ask this in the official Mage forums. This is kind of unintuitive, even more if the logic changes from boss to boss.
