Just restarting as Fire, and re-learning rotation.

9 posts in this topic

I am using combustion now to help with dot tracking, and I know it warns me about a wasted hotstreak, but how can I better control the hot streak/heating up pattern so that I can roll from casted spell to Inferno Blast to insta pyro, to combustion..

 

 

  2 yrs ago I wouldn't have even needed to ask, but I am quite rusty PLUS all the 6.0 changes to abilities, ability pruning, and talent changes.

 

-Thank you in advance for any assistance y'all can provide.

Generally u allways want to get both Procs (heating up and Pyro) before doing something special.

 

Your normal rota is:

 

1. Fireball until heating up

2. When Heating up, fireball and infero blast.

3. When Heating up and Pyro, use fireball and then pyro instantly (if both up again just repeat)

4. If u just have Pyro, continue fireballing until both proc, then do step 3.

 

For big Ignite:

 

Set up a Heating Up + Pyro Proc, cast another Fireball and use Pyro. You most likely will get another Pyro, use it instantly (this means no fireball in between) if u are decently lucky u get another pyro use it aswell. So u just used 1 fireball and then 3 pyroblasts afterwards. --> combust

 

If u do that <20 sec after fight start, all your trinkets will be up and potion is still up ending up in a combustion of 8-15k depending on procs and your ilvl.

 

This is the ideal scenario to use combustion. Afterwards spread it if there is a second target with infero blust. If u get unlucky, u might have to build up your ignite again. There comes your addon into play. If your ignite is something low (5k ish) u might consider to build up again before using combustion. However - if your trinkets go on cd, u might not reach more than 5k afterwards aswell. Thats why u track trinket cooldowns wink.png

Pretty much what the OP said. Only one addition, if you have very low crit levels, I'd recommend replacing the standard Hot Streak animations with custom ones using WA. That way you can show the cooldown and if you are extremely unlucky, you will know when Hot Streak ends.

I really don't know how. Think my highest combustion was 12k ignite? Not sure if that was a one time thing, but I do reach 10k ignites on burst constantly.

So general stat question:

 

I'm confused on our stat priority as fire 6.0.2

I've read both  Crit> Multi > Mast   and  Mast > multi > crit

 

What are you guys prioritizing?

Crit > Mastery and always use KTT

This is more or less how us fire mages need to now get our big pyro crits now, since we don't have access to POM or alter time anymore. And that snapshotting has been removed from the game. Now I will admit I haven't run a SoO in about 6 weeks now. Was waiting for 6.0 to drop. But I have achieved a 25k pyro crit on a ordos pull just after 6.0 dropped using that general rotation. So big crits are possible, I am averaging big pyro crits of about 12-15k. Right now my ilvl is at 571 with my crit on my gear at just under 55%. I am gonna be running my first guild raid this comming week since 6.0 dropped. If I can achieve anything better than that I will update this.

Crit > Mastery and always use KTT

 

I actually had mixed results with this priority. For me Crit ~= Mastery worked quite better. With short kill times in mind Mastery is a very competitive stat.

With respect to KTT, it does work better for consistent damage, but I did have some very big bursts with BBoY. Basically a tradeoff to consider.

 

And about the rotation, basic pyro camping method works well.

However, I use the slightly modified version which lets having higher 2pc uptime, this works as follows:

1. Do simple camping when you're below 3 stacks.

2. Since you have time to put in 2 fireballs without loosing the stacks, if you have HS but no HU from first fireball, fire your pyro with the second fireball when at 3 stacks or above. This gamble usually pays off and allows more frequent use of IB without HU munching.

      now ive tried diffrent ways of doing my rotation but i still cant seem to "hold it up" i am high up at start...til like 30-60sec into the fight then i start falling behind:(

      So iam willing to give out 1 token to whom ever can give me a reasonable, understandable solution that works for me
      (i know i didnt optimize my trueshot, prepots etc etc) But the problem is after trueshot and my troll racial is "over" i start falling:(
      this is what i wanna figure out, ive tried to do Aimed and then barrage/windburst etc but i seem to starve on focus, ive tried the 2aimed then some cd's but seems i fall behind on Aimedshot dmg then:(

      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/xZf9NW1KV6nyLgXQ#fight=30&type=damage-done&source=153          <----Log of the actuall kill
      here i got run over, but still my numbers are abysmal  (7% pref(

      here is the same rotation but a wipe  (29% pref)
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/xZf9NW1KV6nyLgXQ#fight=28&type=damage-done&source=153 
       
      another wipe, same rotation but only 9% pref
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/xZf9NW1KV6nyLgXQ#fight=27&type=damage-done&source=153 

      So even with the same rotation (atleast i think and feel like i do the same) i can go from 7% pref to 29% pref, i know alot of dmg is RNG but i cant be THAT Unlucky
      id say my avg preformance is about 10% so iam not unlucky iam sucky:(
      but i need to understand what i need to work on:( rotation i know...but is it as simple as to get the azortian down to the perfection?
      cause ive seen other hunters do my "get as many aimedshot as possible into vuln phase" do like 98% pref...but when i do it i fall down to 9.8:)

      tnx for any input and help

      and ill be more then willing to hand out a token for a guide/suggestion that actually works for me

      Hey everyone. I'm worried that my time invested in BM is for not. However, with the changes coming to MM, my thoughts are that BM may still be a viable raiding spec. I enjoy BM because of its freedom of movement.  A dead hunter does no damage, and that my motto. With that being said, I want to be sure I'm maximising my damage output. I'm currently waiting on some drops, namely trinkets, which I've been incredibly unlucky with, but other than that, I'm geming for mastery, and enchanting agi where needed. Currently, in raids, with flasks and potions, I've been ranging in dps from about 265-310, depending on the fight.  Given my gear, I feel like I should be doing more. I'm unsure if I'm hitting a ceiling with BM, or if it is something I'm doing wrong. I've been following the standard rotation posted on icy-veins, and even under normalized conditions on training dummies (no flasks etc...), under 2-3 min rotations, I've been peaking at around 270k dps. Any thoughts on this?
       
      Here is a link to my armory.

      Hello!
      I've been playing a bunch of mage recently to eventually find myself at 850 ilevel (down to 849 for stat purpose, I swapped an item for more haste and crit instead of mastery). However, since my last raid (yesterday), I feel like I might not be pulling enough damage for my ilevel so I'm looking for advices concerning the spec, rotation or stats. Further down, you're going to find my armory profile but I want to say it right here and now : I am aware that I'm overflowing with Mastery and I am currently working towards lowering that by a lot (if only gear would drop D:).
       
      While we're here, I also wanted to hear about your thoughts on specs. I just did a Maw Mythic +4 and some people didn't seem to be happy when they saw that I was frost and told me they should've known before because of some AoE issue and damage in general. Could it be that Frost isn't as good as Simulationcraft says it is ? I roughly hit the 200k DPS mark and I find myself pretty low compared to some people. Maybe Fire is better? Or even Arcane (even though I find it disgusting...). What do y'all think?
       
      Cheers!

      Hello!
      i struggle with Markedshot procs:( in general, so i know something is wrong with my rotation(cant be that unlucky)

      at start of a fight iam allways top 3...but then i fall like a rock in water:(
      so iam wondering if you can actually do too many aimedshot, wich will prevent you from getting proccs more often?
      i actually get 3 AiS into a 5sec vuln...

      compared to other hunters in my guild iam up to par when it comes to AiS but on barrage and marked iam way behind:(
      i know i gotta be better at Barrage use, but the markedshot proccs really bug me:( I just cant seem to get em

      any suggestions?
