I think Elemental Force is better ;)

Elemental force is a 5ppm on damaging spells (both periodic and non-periodic as of 5.0.5). It hits for ~3k. So, this makes 15k damage per minute (250dps) theoretically. This has a pretty high proc rate, so let's say in practice ~200dps.

Windsong is 1ppm but also each proc is seperate (ie the haste/crit/mastery procs are not on the same 1ppm limitation, you effectively get 3ppm, but different buffs each time). In other words, for 2/5 (40%) of the fight you could theoretically have one of these buffs on. More likely to be ~25% of the fight per buff. (12 sec, 1 minute internal cooldown, not a huge proc rate, but you have a lot of DoTs/casts).

Windsong DPS boost is a bit harder to calculate but for a fire mage 1500 crit is godly - 2.5% crit. Haste gives you ~3.5% haste. Mastery gives you ~3%.

Now really only Crit and Haste of those are super good for a fire mage but mastery will give you a bit of power too. As for the DPS increase, well that depends on your other gear as to how much the crit/haste/mastery boost will benefit you. I personally feel that Windsong (especially at a higher gear set) will do a lot more for you than Elemental Force. I would love to see some actual simulations of formulaic proof either way, maybe a project for next week...

EDIT: Something else to keep in mind is that Windsong procs can overlap with trinkets/heroism/beserking/etc/etc/etc to multiply its effect. Elemental force is a flat damage proc. Everyone knows that stacking cooldowns results in the highest boost to effect, and the same is true for procs like windsong. If you get a proc while you have a bunch of other spell power/haste/etc cooldowns up you can get a pretty sick burst for 10+seconds.

Any clue if power torrent is any decent still? I have a ton of mats to make them and am not very satisfied with these enchants.

edit: I hear PT is better for locks right now. I need to look into this a little, it might just be cause of dem pets

      Hey there!
      I've recently started playing a mage, and I feel like my performance is a little below where it should be right now... I feel like I have the basics of the fire rotation down, but I really want to make any improvements that I can.. I don't really know where i'm going wrong, or what i'm doing that is causing a gap in numbers between me and similarly geared players. I have a log from a normal Xavius fight from earlier, maybe someone could take a look at it and point out any mistakes or give a few pointers?
      Thanks for your time!

      Hi everyone. I've a question, What spect should we roll for 7.1.5?
      So patch notes for 7.1.5 (November the 29th) are out.
      And I have 2 things to remark
      1.Strong buff to Arcane Mana cost for Arcane Blast has been reduced from 125% to 60% per Arcane Charge, since they are mana dependent. This does not apply It Was a tooltip bug.
      2.Almost all fire skills were buffed in damage, Fireball,Flame Blast, PyroBlast, Scorch, FlameStrike, CinderStorm,Meteor,Conflag and Phoenix's Flames. BUT Critical Mass % was reduced from 15% to 10% and Pyretic Incantation was nerfed from 5% per stack  to 2% per stack = 15%  less damage from consecutive Critical Strikes.
      I haven't done the math yet, but since Arcane has gotten a lot of buffs lately, and Fire is getting "balanced" (Since i've no idea how the patch will afect fire dps), and Frost Topping dps in rankings, and with no significant buffs or nerfs in the patch notes i suppose they will stay in tops.
      So if anyone would be so kind to enlighten me what spect you guys think it would be the best for 7.1.5 and why.
