Rain of Fire woes

8 posts in this topic

I've hit level 90 with my Lock and, after playing demo up until this point, I've decided to try out destro.

One thing I've noticed so far is that I hate Rain of Fire. The guide says to keep it up, but I'm finding it a bit of a pain as it has to be targeted on the ground. I find this annoying....yes, I do use keybinds but this is still another click and it has to be accurate.

Firstly, does anyone know if its possible to get rain of fire to just center on the current target?

Secondly, how much DPS will I be losing if I don't bother with the spell entirely.

TBH, at this point I'm thinking that I'll just go back to demo. I really don't like clicking the target area!

Cheers,

Nic

1) You can't focus it on a target. The target reticle must be used.

2) You won't lose much DPS if you don't keep it up. Try to keep it up during Dark Soul and Bloodlust to boost your Ember regeneration.

Thanks for that, Zag.

I guess I'll just suck it up. I'm still hoping for a Glyph of Rain of Fire/Anti-Hand of Guldan though!

You might know this already, but you gain a Rain of Fire buff while your Rain of Fire is up. This really helps if you want to set up a Weak Aura string to monitor its uptime.

Affdots does this as well. Only bad thing about stacking Haste is having to reapply Rain of Fire so much.

RoF is dps loss because you arent a robot that can keep it up all fight unless there is 2 or more targets.

You can keybind your rain of fire to a key close to your hand as I do. Then just have it clicked a second or so before your current spell ends and shouldn't lose any time between casting other spells. For example I use my arrow keys to move being left handed. I have rain of fire on the 2 key of the key pad. I hit it with my pinky fast enough that I dont waste any time. 1 on keypad is my stop cast and 0 i use as jump along with space bar. its always next to my movement keys.

It's just something to get used it. I have seen some nice dps increase by keeping it up. I have high haste as zagam mentioned so have to use it often. It gets pretty normal after a few runs.

I've gotten used to casting it inbetween incinerate spam sessions, or between chaos bolts. Bear, it's not a dps loss in any way, just not a huge gain unless you're set up to get embers falling from the heavens with it.

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding. We cleared through Nighthold heroic a number of months ago and need some more people in order to jump into mythic. Besides raiding our friendly bunch of members enjoy running mythic+ on daily basis, helping out with world quests among other things. Our discord is usually filled with members for daily banter and weekly fun. If you enjoy all that, you most certainly will enjoy your stay in Volatile.
      Who are we looking for?
      We're primarily looking for ranged DPS to fill out the roster. At this time we are full on tanks and healers.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - MM Hunter, Warlock and Shadow Priest but all classes will be considered
      Melee DPS - Closed
      Overall we're looking for people with a good knowledge of their class/spec who know how to improve their gameplay. Being fairly thick skinned and being able to accept constructive criticism, as well as the occasional jab from some of our more 'outspoken' members, is a big plus too.
      When do we raid?
      We raid two times a week as standard, we often have an additional raid day if necessary. See raid times below. 
      Thursday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Monday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Tuesday: 8pm - 11pm (Additional day)
      Application process:
      We believe the best way to get to know if someone is right for the guild is just to have a chat, rather than go through a long application process. So we'll have a chat, look at logs and possibly run some M+ to get to know each other. If you're interested in joining our mythic raid team, contact any of the following:
      Contact us:
      GM: 
      Xadel#2609, Xadel (ingame)
      Council: 
      Òops#2597, Drainphase (ingame)
      Passive#2900, Malenky (ingame)
      Ohajay#2606, Draconem (ingame)
      Hjp#21650, Phynn (ingame)

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: Vims#21684 Azkey#21565
