I think that whether you put points in Flametail or not at the very high levels (125+) depends on whether you are farming or doing challenges/bosses. I'm going through the same dilemma now, and have concluded that I'll just have to respect as needed to go after the high-end bosses. Would be interested to see if anyone has found a better way to deal with switching b/t farming and bosskiller objectives.
I've only respecced one time at 130 or so and that was just to move some statpoints from dex to str because charms gave enough AR alone at that point.
Following this skillbuild since level 1:
Max: Widowmaker, Dragonfire oil, Embalming
1 pointers: Talon's hold, Death Pact, Famine
14 points Flametail shot
25/28 points in Death Ward and 6/17 in Rathma's Chosen (I headed for 10% ds here).
I'm using Advent of Hatred for single target/less crowded farming areas and hwanins for farming and I could kill almost every uber boss (except laz, atanna khan, valthek, void end fight) without ever reskilling for the specific fight. Advent of Hatred is also really cheap/easy to get your hands on in comparison to buriza
It melts bosses even when I still have those 14 points in flametail/not used in other skills.
What also really really helps imo is always having 50 phys res (truce, erawan or petulant, dyers eve, knuckle rings, gelebs, royal circ or witchhunters hood).
Hope that helps.
