Rain of Fire woes

8 posts in this topic

I've hit level 90 with my Lock and, after playing demo up until this point, I've decided to try out destro.

One thing I've noticed so far is that I hate Rain of Fire. The guide says to keep it up, but I'm finding it a bit of a pain as it has to be targeted on the ground. I find this annoying....yes, I do use keybinds but this is still another click and it has to be accurate.

Firstly, does anyone know if its possible to get rain of fire to just center on the current target?

Secondly, how much DPS will I be losing if I don't bother with the spell entirely.

TBH, at this point I'm thinking that I'll just go back to demo. I really don't like clicking the target area!

Cheers,

Nic

1) You can't focus it on a target. The target reticle must be used.

2) You won't lose much DPS if you don't keep it up. Try to keep it up during Dark Soul and Bloodlust to boost your Ember regeneration.

Thanks for that, Zag.

I guess I'll just suck it up. I'm still hoping for a Glyph of Rain of Fire/Anti-Hand of Guldan though!

You might know this already, but you gain a Rain of Fire buff while your Rain of Fire is up. This really helps if you want to set up a Weak Aura string to monitor its uptime.

Affdots does this as well. Only bad thing about stacking Haste is having to reapply Rain of Fire so much.

RoF is dps loss because you arent a robot that can keep it up all fight unless there is 2 or more targets.

You can keybind your rain of fire to a key close to your hand as I do. Then just have it clicked a second or so before your current spell ends and shouldn't lose any time between casting other spells. For example I use my arrow keys to move being left handed. I have rain of fire on the 2 key of the key pad. I hit it with my pinky fast enough that I dont waste any time. 1 on keypad is my stop cast and 0 i use as jump along with space bar. its always next to my movement keys.

It's just something to get used it. I have seen some nice dps increase by keeping it up. I have high haste as zagam mentioned so have to use it often. It gets pretty normal after a few runs.

I've gotten used to casting it inbetween incinerate spam sessions, or between chaos bolts. Bear, it's not a dps loss in any way, just not a huge gain unless you're set up to get embers falling from the heavens with it.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, Rogue, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Nomads is a social guild with a semi hardcore mythic raiding team at Quel'Thalas/Azjol-Nerub, our guild is one of the oldest on the server with 8 years under it’s belt.
      Our Progress: 7/7M EN, 2/3H ToV and +12-14 Mythics.
       
      We are a friendly social guild and We like to enjoy the game and see all of the content it has to offer.
       
      We do all of the mythics every week and also lots of m+ runs.
       
      Our raiding atmosphere is super chilled, we don't tolerate toxicity and bm of any kind.
      As a mythic raider you’re expected to be here for raids, doesn’t have to be all of them every week, but we need to know we can count on you when we need you.
       
      Our raid times are (server time): 
      Wednesday/Thursday/Sunday => 20:30 - 23:30 (mythic raids)
       
      We have bonus raids for farm content:
      Friday => 20:45 - 22:00 (EN heroic)
      Saturdays => 20:45 - 22:00 (EN normal)
      Mondays => 20:00 to 23:00-24:00 (ToV HC run)
       
      The team looks really strong and we’re want to fill out some missing spots in our Ranged DPS department,
      We’re mostly looking for Hunters/Mages and could also use a strong Warlock/ShadowPriest.
      For healers : any very good healer would do, pref Druid/Priest.

      Shamdi (Assistant Mythic team leader) => Mistere#2792

      We are currently 7/7M EN...3/3H ToV and our raid schedule is: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights from 8-11 Server (CST). 
      website:  http://symbiosisofsargeras.shivtr.com/
      We are a stable guild who has been around for over 8 years now. New members have come and gone but raiding has always been the constant here. With veteran leadership and a strong core we continue to push forward in search of progressing as fast as we can each tier while still having fun and raiding a light schedule. That being said, we don't slouch either and we typically finish all the content while its relevant with significant progress into hard modes. Our median raid member age is somewhere around 25 and we tend to look for mature players. We like to have fun but we also know when its time to get down to business. As we only raid 9 hours a week we like to squeak out as many pulls as possible and be as efficient as we can with our time. We ask that our members show up early, fully repaired and with consumables ready to go. If you are looking for a stable guild who is continuously pushing for new progression kills then we might be the place for you.
