(Fire) I need some help with my damage

4 posts in this topic

Hello there.

I'm a 864 fire mage currently at 6/7H but i really think my dps is too low, maybe is it because i don't have the legendary bracers yet, but still i think it should be better, In my last run in H i started doing the rotation a bit better, (i wasn't doing the crit train as i should) and i improved my dps in 20k. Still i think i should do better.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Talent Choices.  Conflag, Living Bomb, and Cinderstorm are situational.  Heavy Cleave/AOE.  I don't see a use for them on most boss fights.  With classes that have substantially higher AOE than Fire without even using talents for it, I find our mediocre AOE to be not as worth wild on a boss fight.  Therefore, in my personal opinion, you're hurting your DPS on boss fights.

 

On your wipe on Nythendra you had a cast efficiency of 76%.  You missed a lot of stuff.  You used 2 out of 3 possible Combustions, 10 out of 11 PF, 24 out of 34 Fire Blasts.  You failed to convert 3 Fireballs into Hotstreak for a total of 7 out of 10 crits.

You used 1 potion off the start with hero.

Your combustion phase consisted of 5 pyros.  You can get a steady 6 to 7 always.

 

On your kill you fixed your cast efficiency, but you still missed 7 Fireball crits converting them to Hot Streaks, 23 out of 30 crits.

You still only used 1 potion, on hero at the start.  You used 7 total Combustion phases, which is good, but you're lacking still with mostly 5 pyros and you've got 3 rounds with 4 pyros.

 

Looking at the details of your casts, it appears that you are using Combustion then casting ROP.  Huge No No.

Combustion phase needs to work like this.

Pre-pot: Pyro/Fireball Crit?  Hotstreak?  If yes  Then cast ROP then at end of cast immediately use Combustion then go into rotation.

Pre-Pot: Pyro/Fireball Crit?  No?  Continue casting Fireball Crit? Yes Continue Casting Fireball, Crit?  Yes > Go into ROP+Combustion as you entered a hot streak.

If you fail to get a hot streak using Fireball after 10 or so seconds, use a single PF to proc your next Fireball into a Hot Streak.  Then enter Combustion+ROP.

 

Remember, Hot Streak is REQUIRED BEFORE putting down a ROP and using Combustion.  However do not waste your Fireblasts and more than 1 PF to get into a hot Streak prior to burning ROP and Combustion!!!

 

So again. Hot streak > Cast ROP, at end of cast use Combustion > Pyro (use that hot streak up) FB > Pyro > FB > Pyro > Flame On > FB > Pyro > FV > Pyro > PF > Pyro.  Guaranteed 6 Pyros during Combustion.

 

 

Most of your fights you seem to not know what to even do with combustion at all.  You have a couple fights where you burn it over 1 second before casting a ROP, then try to get some Pyros out of it, but then there are plenty of other fights where you don't use it at all.  There are fights where you do use it but it's haphazardly placed.  Literally looking at logs where you dont use Combustion at all until mid way, you use it once, and you don't even use anything to benefit it.  You literally wasted it.

 

That's all I can say right now, you have a lot of improvement to work on.  You need to hammer out the basics of Combustion.

Wiggling Sinew and Devilsaur Shock Baton are considered BIS.  There are a couple others that could be interchanged with Devilsaur Shock Baton that could be better depending on ilvl.

 

Kindling should be used with Pyromaniac talent, period.  Has nothing to do really with your trinkets.  You're stacking crit as a fire mage, therefore the "should I use kindling if I use a crit trinket"is moot.

      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, 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

      Are you looking to experience content with a solid group, but you don't have the time or desire for Mythic raiding?  We might be a great fit!
      Our team is recruiting for normal and heroic mode Nighthold and beyond.  Flex raids mean you always have a raid slot.  The guild provides all raid consumables.
      Raid times:
      Tuesday and Thursdays, 8:00PM - 11:00PM EST. Only six hours a week (often less once fights are on farm).  
      Sunday evenings we often hold optional Alt raids.
      Recruitment needs:
      We are especially interested in Warlocks, Boomkins, Hunters, Death Knights, Demon Hunters, and Rogues. Even if you are not one of those classes, don't hesitate to reach out if we sound like a good fit for you.
      Requirements:
      We ask that you join us in Discord during raids, at least to listen.  Perform reasonably for your gear level in Normal and Heroic raid content.  Our guideline is ilvl 865 but we can work with you. Our raid schedule is light, so we ask that you try to make raids whenever possible.  We of course realize things come up sometimes. Contact:
      Fill out an application on our website: http://condescending.enjin.com/  Navigate to the recruitment forums for instructions. My main is Westvleteren-Zul'jin (battle tag: Westvleteren#1524). My recruitment partner is Aârøñ-Zul'jin (battle tag: cactusdoodle#1677).

      Trying to get myself geared better but seem to be having problems.  Artifact is almost full on fire.  Just having to unlock the 3rd trait is being a pain.
