Unless you have the Recharge spell, the fire blast stinks. Why?
1) Long recharge: all you can have stash for heroes
2) Just goes in one direction
3) Burns the ballista, Triballista, tentacle garden and other non-lightning towers
4) TOTAL waste of space--the rock drop is CHEAPER, the post-impact may be SLOWER, but at least I don't BURN ANYTHING
And last but REALLY not least, 5) Cross my heart, NEVER, EVER kills an epic ON CONTACT. With any other hero you'd be all set, but NOOOOOO, the have EPIC!!! Health, or EPIC!!! Speed. I think it would give the epic knight a run for it's money in terms of DAMAGE.
5.5) Did I mention that they don't power up when crossing a lava crack?

Simu-mattg, I blame you.

The Fire Blast deals 50% more damage than the Rock Drop, and, as you said, deals it much faster. It's a great alternative for players who may not have the timing down to predict the heroes' movements. Also, the Rock Drop will not one-shot knights if an Epic Cleric's aura is active, while the Fire Blast will.

I will say, however, that a recent balance patch decreased the play time on a level per level basis by a good 1-2 minutes each, if not more... So the Fire Blast's cooldown may be too high now.
