So i guess its fairy trail after all
That section of the spell damage thread is referring to how spell damage benefits flat elemental damage on melee attack which doesn't apply to trap rats that don't use melee skills. The primary reason for using Force of Nature is that it adds flat fire/cold/lightning if the player already has an existing source of those damage types. This requirement is taken care of by having the Elemental Prism in ones inventory. Faerie Fire has its uses for completeing some content but for end game FoN is superior for damage.
FoN does apply spell damage to missiles btw, just not wdm ones like Quill Storm.
