Fire Mage 2P Question

2 posts in this topic

Currently ilvl 700 and was wondering how good and important the 2P set for fire is.

I just got two pieces of gear that give me the set bonus but cause me to lose out on some stats as they are lower in ilvl.

I will be upgrading them with valor when I can, but I am wondering how good the set bonuses are for fire mage.

It depends on the comparing gear you could wear.

For AoE situations the 2P is already a good boost. So it is for single-target (PrePatch improved the Firemage for Singletarget).

But as I see, you already got 4P, so just stay as you are :)

      Hey there,
      I am wondering how i can further improve my dmg. I am doing all the things the guide recommends, but i think there is more that i can do in terms of doing DMG. I espacially want to max my dmg at single targets. I m fine with ae, but I think there is more potential. I ve tried a lot different rotation priorities and strategies, but i cant get over 257k dps with my gear. The main problem is, that there are points where my dmg drops below 100k and I think that is the main source for my misery. Can someone have a look at my log? I just did a dummy log cause i think it is the optimal way to figure out the best rotation.

      So I recently picked up a fire mage for the first time ever, I've been playing wow on and off for around 7 years but never picked up a mage till now.
      Anyway, I have been wondering of my rotation outside of Combustion? I have read the guide supplied here and tried to follow it as best as I can, the main scenario I have is.
      Whenever I am casting fireballs I wait till I have a heating up proc, as I've precasted my next fireball I get heating up, halfway through the fireball cast, I cast the fireblast converting my heating up to a hot streak. I then end the fireball cast with an instant pyroblast. Sometimes this results in another hot streak due to both critting, sometimes its a heating up proc and sometimes neither crit and I'm left starting over. I then usually tend to find myself running out of fireblasts fairly quickly and having to cast fireballs until they return off cooldown.
      I always cast a fireball before I cast my instant pyroblast to try pyroblast fish but this doesnt always result in a crit.
      I was wondering by casting the fireblast mid channel of my fireball then finishing my fireball cast with an instant pyroblast is this the most efficent way to be using my spells?
      I've tried a few other ways of casting such as casting fireball under a heating up then fireblast during the channel, then cast another fireball and end with an instant pyroblast to smooth out my rotation but im not sure which one is the better method or they are both wrong?
      I am 838 ilvl and can hold around 140-160k dps on bosses after my initial burst, my weapon is only 814 ilvl as im not finished my order hall and i have 42% crit. My stats arnt great but I was wondering is my weapon holding me back hugely and once I upgrade it will all my problems be solved?
      Sorry for essay, but I wanted to be clear on my question and get a clear response.

      Hello there :)
      Currently I'm playing firemage with 59 % crit (with 300 bufffood). I'm raiding as well and we are 6/7 nhc (we're not going for progress ;)). Depending on the fights I'm able to maintain between 180k and 220k dps. But from everyone I'm just hearing that this dps is way too low and I have to change something. So this is why I'm asking you ;)
      I'm going to upload a dummy log, so you can see my complete rotation how I am going through it. This is the way I am doing it in raid as well, depending on mechanics and movement a bit different (maybe I can upload a Cenarius and Xavius Log tomorrow when were going to raid). So my question is: Is there a mistake in my rotation, am I doing it right? I know Im missing gems right now, but they are just way too expensive right now :)

      I would really appreciate some help :) thanks in advance !

      Concerning Fire Mage, after I burst and Fire Blast, Flame On, and Phoenix Flame's are on cooldown then what?
      Do I cast only Fireball until the 2 Fire Blast and Flame On are off cooldown? Do I cast Fireball until heating up and use the first Fire Blast off cooldown?
      I cannot seem to find a good rotation after my burst is finished...

      My raid member is having issues doing reasonable DPS as a Fire Mage and I lack the knowledge to help him.
      His armory I didn't specifically choose Ursoc I just feel that it is a good baseline of what he does with minimum movement.
      I can get more details from him if required. He is getting mad at himself for not understanding what he is doing wrong. And my knowledge of classes stop outside of melee.
