Here are a few things I've noticed regarding spell usage.
- Frost Bomb probably has an 8-second cooldown for you, given your spell haste. In a 391-second fight, you only cast is 27 times when you could have used it 48 times easily. You may have lost up to 1M damage from this.
- Icy Veins is used only twice when you could have used it three times.

My gems a veird atm cause of moneytouble (lame i know). Going to fix it this week.
I wasen't looking to compare myself with Wasted (fire), i was just wondering if i do anything drastically wrong.
The log were from a lfr i did just to get some stats, same as video.
Rop before invocation i switched to becuz he had that, but as you say, i got alot more haste.
And as of epicentre i never did this boss in normal mode for some reason (usually run out early on raidnights cause of work) so i never looked in to the mecanics.
I'll try tape and get logs from tonights guildrun at last two bosses and get back here!
Thank you for your time!
Apologies if I came off a bit harsh, but reading your post I thought you were after a comparison while providing near to no data.
All the things I mentioned still stand, and as Damien has mentioned, you need to get your casting uptime increased. A lot of that will come down to knowing fight mechanics and when you can cast - and how to position yourself quickly in the right place.
Other than that, fire out performs frost in the early raids so far (not by a huge margin, but it is there). Just a quick glance at World of Logs will confirm that to you. I'm not saying change your spec, I'm just mentioning you probably won't be pushing top dps right now, and this may be what you were referring to in your initial post.

The Glyph of Combustion alters its cooldown.
I have a number of issues with my fire mage, but let me ask a quick question. Is there a way to shorten the Combustion CD. I have switched from
LB to Nether Tempest and from Scorch to POM. And it seems that my Combustion CD is longer. Is this possible?
