Hey all.

First time poster and all that.

I would just like to find out if the reforging on my gear is correct for a fire mage.

http://eu.battle.net...lhella/advanced

at the moment with current gear i am getting roughly 30k dps which seems to be very low Posted Image

I do not have any logs from world of logs.

One thing i did notice which i should not be doing is hard casting Pyro blast is that correct ?

my rotation is some thing along the lines of

Fireball , Pyroblast , Living bomb , flame Orb , scorch

well something like that...

so the next thing I will be trying will be what Icy Veins has in their guide to see if it makes a difference.

I did use ask mr robot to reforge my gear.

regards,

Hrm... I popped onto my mage for the first time in AGES and seem to be pulling ~27k in LFR gear unbuffed.

I do hardcast pyro BUT only if the dot is about to expire and the instant hasn't procced.

Mr robot at the moment is a bit funny, it likes to try and tell me how to reforge my gear for pvp.

You can play about with the stat weights on it as well, so have a check of exactly what they should be and then you can customize it to work a little better ;)

You can also check out http://www.noxxic.com/

Just select either PvE or PvP, your class/spec, and check out the reforge tab.

I find it useful when I have to double check Mr. Robot's reforge suggestion, just to make sure I get the right crit and whatnot.

I hope this was helpful :) I don't know much about Fire Mages.

We probably have one of the best class guide offering of the whole Internet here, so there's no need to link to external sites, especially those that do not engage in any sort of research or experiment.

Here's the page of interest: http://www.icy-veins.com/fire-mage-pve-statistics-priority-reforging

Hello Valhella, to reply to your question, your reforging and gemming choices are very good.

Indeed you should not be hard casting spell_fire_fireball02.jpgPyroblast, in the general case. You can do that when you need a spell_fire_fireball02.jpgPyroblast crit for spell_fire_sealoffire.jpgCombustion and this cannot wait. This happens when you want to use spell_fire_sealoffire.jpgCombustion at specific times, for example when there is a pack of adds to kill, so that you can spread it with spell_fire_meteorstorm.jpgImpact.

If you cannot provide combat logs, you can always give us the percentage of damage you do with each ability, and we can tell you if this is normal. Other than that, you didn't mention in which circumstances you are doing 30k DPS. If this is on a training dummy, this is very good with your gear.

On the noxxic subject... is it acurate for mages? The hunter section has, or at least had the last time I was on it, major errors. Personally I don't overly rate it. As it is contributed by random players it is a bit like wikkipedia... not particularly reliable imo!

I find this site much easier to follow & more comprehensive.

I need to remember to hard cast Pyro when my combustion is off CD.

That shit will just sit and not be used for too damn long and I never remember to hardcast pyro.

I'm a bad mage.

Just a quick question: Don't you have to hardcast Pyroblast at the start of the fight as well? Our mages start casting during the countdown and their pyroblast hits as soon as the countdown hits 0 and the tank engages the boss.

You don't "have" to. It's a bit like pre-potting, a progression-only DPS optimisation :P

Thanks for the replies :)

the 30k i am getting is on Ultrax HC

sometimes i average about 27K.

other hc bosses i avg in the 20k dps range.

on dummies i get about 24k.

my only worry is that raid buffed crit is 34%

self buffed i am about 28%

with regards to % done with each ability how would you like me to give this to you?

I use recount so i could take screen shots if i have to.. or something.

Yes, you can take a screenshot of your recount, that would be useful ;)

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      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.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      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, PUBG, 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 battletag: Vims#21684
