Reforging

11 posts in this topic

Hey all.

First time poster and all that.

I would just like to find out if the reforging on my gear is correct for a fire mage.

http://eu.battle.net...lhella/advanced

at the moment with current gear i am getting roughly 30k dps which seems to be very low Posted Image

I do not have any logs from world of logs.

One thing i did notice which i should not be doing is hard casting Pyro blast is that correct ?

my rotation is some thing along the lines of

Fireball , Pyroblast , Living bomb , flame Orb , scorch

well something like that...

so the next thing I will be trying will be what Icy Veins has in their guide to see if it makes a difference.

I did use ask mr robot to reforge my gear.

regards,

Hrm... I popped onto my mage for the first time in AGES and seem to be pulling ~27k in LFR gear unbuffed.

I do hardcast pyro BUT only if the dot is about to expire and the instant hasn't procced.

Mr robot at the moment is a bit funny, it likes to try and tell me how to reforge my gear for pvp.

You can play about with the stat weights on it as well, so have a check of exactly what they should be and then you can customize it to work a little better ;)

You can also check out http://www.noxxic.com/

Just select either PvE or PvP, your class/spec, and check out the reforge tab.

I find it useful when I have to double check Mr. Robot's reforge suggestion, just to make sure I get the right crit and whatnot.

I hope this was helpful :) I don't know much about Fire Mages.

We probably have one of the best class guide offering of the whole Internet here, so there's no need to link to external sites, especially those that do not engage in any sort of research or experiment.

Here's the page of interest: http://www.icy-veins.com/fire-mage-pve-statistics-priority-reforging

Hello Valhella, to reply to your question, your reforging and gemming choices are very good.

Indeed you should not be hard casting spell_fire_fireball02.jpgPyroblast, in the general case. You can do that when you need a spell_fire_fireball02.jpgPyroblast crit for spell_fire_sealoffire.jpgCombustion and this cannot wait. This happens when you want to use spell_fire_sealoffire.jpgCombustion at specific times, for example when there is a pack of adds to kill, so that you can spread it with spell_fire_meteorstorm.jpgImpact.

If you cannot provide combat logs, you can always give us the percentage of damage you do with each ability, and we can tell you if this is normal. Other than that, you didn't mention in which circumstances you are doing 30k DPS. If this is on a training dummy, this is very good with your gear.

On the noxxic subject... is it acurate for mages? The hunter section has, or at least had the last time I was on it, major errors. Personally I don't overly rate it. As it is contributed by random players it is a bit like wikkipedia... not particularly reliable imo!

I find this site much easier to follow & more comprehensive.

I need to remember to hard cast Pyro when my combustion is off CD.

That shit will just sit and not be used for too damn long and I never remember to hardcast pyro.

I'm a bad mage.

Just a quick question: Don't you have to hardcast Pyroblast at the start of the fight as well? Our mages start casting during the countdown and their pyroblast hits as soon as the countdown hits 0 and the tank engages the boss.

You don't "have" to. It's a bit like pre-potting, a progression-only DPS optimisation :P

Thanks for the replies :)

the 30k i am getting is on Ultrax HC

sometimes i average about 27K.

other hc bosses i avg in the 20k dps range.

on dummies i get about 24k.

my only worry is that raid buffed crit is 34%

self buffed i am about 28%

with regards to % done with each ability how would you like me to give this to you?

I use recount so i could take screen shots if i have to.. or something.

Yes, you can take a screenshot of your recount, that would be useful ;)

      - We are a raiding guild with a 3 days a week schedule that you are expected to attend. However we understand things can come up but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons and world quests to gear in preparation for raids. This includes improving your artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared (i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.

      I'm having problems to reach an dps, which I consider appropriate with my mage frost. I read the talents, builds, BiS in the web site. I never played with mage before.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 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
      Violentnacho & the Guild
