Help with Arcane & Fire.

5 posts in this topic

Below I have my armory and several logs. I feel like my fire is defanitly lacking and I'm not entriely sure what I am doing wrong. I also have attached a log of my arcane becasue I feel like it is underperforming compared to other mages close to my gear and I must be doing something wrong.




Iron Maidens Heroic (fire) sloppy, long kill


Thogar (fire)



Gruul (arcane)



I really appreichate the help in advance everyone!

One thing I should have added. I'm really having a hard time deciding when I should use combustion. Is it better to sit on the ability while its off CD even though my ignite tick is only 6k or should I use it because its beter than losing the DPS all together?


In arcane I just realized I wasnt implemnting a burn phase consistently and this was gimping my dps as tad. When going into the burn phase with arcane power and crystal should I just spam blast until 50% or should I mix in missles as well? Do I use missles as they come up during the burn phase or wait until I get back into concerve?

I'm running fire and arcane as well, didn't look at your logs or armory yet, however I felt the need to throw this out there. During your burn phase your single-target priority rotation shouldn't change much aside from using AB without restriction, you should still be casting Arcane missiles and supernova if it's up. This is doubly true if you have the "Overpowered" Talent as Arcane missiles then extends the duration of your arcane power buff by 2 seconds. Hope this helps! Happy Casting.

I'm on my phone so logs are rough to view, but you didn't use your first evocation until 1:20 on gruul, which means you didn't burn on the pull or you spent a minute oom. Also roll prismatic crystal on no movement fights; PM is the scales the hardest with gear, so it's good to get accustomed to using it before you get too far into mythic. I'll look more at your fire logs throughout the day.

I just realized the date posted on this thread, but if the OP is still having issues I'd love to help.

      Me and my raid group are still progressing through Mythic EN, though we have Nyth, Elerethe, and Ursoc all easily on farm. I'm consistently parsing very low for my ilvl, and consistently losing out in dps to a lower ilvl shaman of the same spec. Despite usually having better buff uptimes than him and better cd usage he parses much better than me. Usually the main difference i find is he gets off way more stormstrikes than me. Recently I've started mashing that button almost nonstop in fights, sometimes sacrificing a few seconds of buff time to get off more stormstrikes, but the results seem to be about the same as before. 
      Below you'll find logs that have both of us in them, as well as mine and his armory links. I'm Bigboyee and the other shaman is Cyrashapa. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Ursoc and Odyn were the only clean fights we had here:

      Hey there!
      I've recently started playing a mage, and I feel like my performance is a little below where it should be right now... I feel like I have the basics of the fire rotation down, but I really want to make any improvements that I can.. I don't really know where i'm going wrong, or what i'm doing that is causing a gap in numbers between me and similarly geared players. I have a log from a normal Xavius fight from earlier, maybe someone could take a look at it and point out any mistakes or give a few pointers?
      Thanks for your time!

      Hello Community,
      I am an experienced Mage player since BC, however I am not satisfied with my mage Damage as it is at the moment:
      Would you point out possible Improvements or grave mistakes visible in the logs?
      Thank you very much!
