Well, clearly, placing a bomb inside a tree is going to do more damage to the tree than placing it outside the tree. On the other hand, the internal explosion modifier explicitly states that this has to do with striking the vitals, and a diffuse being (like a tree) wouldn't have vitals.

So do we use the contained explosion or what? And does this apply to anything without vitals as well?
