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 ;)

      <Trust> may be what you're looking for if you enjoy killing internet dragons with a group of like minded players! Currently we are 8/9 Heroic, soon to be stepping into Mythic ToS. We are recruiting to finish rounding out our raid team. <Trust> is located on the [US] Doomhammer/Baelgun pve servers, alliance side! Check us out!
       
      About Us:
      <Trust> is a recently formed guild, founded by a group of long time players that have been raiding together for a couple of years now. Founded out of a desire to continue raiding in a casual-progression manner, we work towards defeating mythic bosses. <Trust> is a raiding guild, first and foremost.
       
      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team. That's 'semi' as in we expect our team members to always prioritize life first; but not 'casual' as in we take downing bosses less seriously. We strive to maintain a balance of taking our progression raids seriously while having plenty of laughs along the way.
       
      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
      Friday(optional): 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
       
      Recruitment:
      <Trust> is looking for full time Resto Druid, Mages, Hunters, and Warlocks for our raid team. We are also open for good people to join as casual players, pvpers, with the option to join farm content or alt raids.

      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.
