Fire from the Sky over Master of Disaster ?

Any idea why the artifact talent guide says to take Fire From the Sky before Master of Disaster ? They are right beside each other you can get to the next talent through either of them. Saw this the same way on the wowhead guide. It seems that it would only be useful in AoE and I cast Incinerate more on a boss. It is a bigger DPS increase (15% RoF vs 9% Incinerate IIRC) but on a spell I use less often.

The reasoning for this is that the recommended talent path is optimized for mythic dungeons rather than raiding.  In that environment, having stronger aoe tends to be more valuable than single target talents.

I also went with incinerate.. and many people are asking your same question. The only reason that has been given for this is that that guide was meant for leveling.. but seeing as how costly it is to reset, I personally suggest never getting that till the end.

The reasoning behind that is damage distribution - Incinerate accounts for about 8-10% of your single target damage, so that perk effectively nets ~1% single target damage.

Rain of Fire however accounts for a far greater portion of your aoe damage (depending if you specced into cataclysm and fire and brimstone or not), so it nets an overall 6-10% increase to your aoe, which is a far greater boost for aoe situations.

1% of ST damage being only 1-3k depending on gear/how well you play/the situation etc. Will you miss that?

If you do mythic+ dungeons RoF is the clear winner. 

If your raid group is low on AoE damage (probably unlikely if melee heavy like mine) then again RoF is important and with the recent buff and decrease in cast time this is rather powerful now (though shame it has a cost now days).

Ultimately, it's down to what your priorities are. In the end we are getting them all.

Yeah that change took effect after i went the other way, ah well i'll pick it up after i've got the last gold trait  whenever that happens, these talents are getting a bit expensive.

      Hello, I'd like to recieve feedback on my lock's deck.
      I was away from hearthstone since the expansion before kobolds and catacombs so it has been a while. I don't have much cards from the kobolds and monsters; but still here's my deck which is fun to play.

      Any suggestions on how to improve this one?

      The strategy is simple; using the deathrattle minions to kill them with the other warlock's minions, and using demons so DK Gul'dan can revive them.

      Hello there all,
      I have been made aware by my guild leader that he has a concerned about my lack of high Damage on my Demonology Warlock.
      Would someone please look him over for gear & potential enchantment,gems Etc.
      He even refused to allow me in a guild raid lately since my dmg wasn't enough, so I went with someone else's guild instead, :)
      I subsequently much higher iLvL  2 relics, one trinket & a end Antoran Raid Aggramar / Argus ring legendary ring  too...
      Anyways I've had this same Warlock since about 2007 I got into wow just a bit before the Burning Crusades expansion came out, so yea I'm very attached to this Warlock of mine.
      I have recently re-did his crit enchants everywhere , gems & talents too, but he still doesn't seem to have gone up in dmg much though, oddly.
      Here is My warlock's wow armory page,OK?
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/fizzcrank/buudy
      If anyone would like me to run a raid,etc logging addon.
      I'd be happy to,  all I ask is to let me know what it is, where to get it, etc,please?
      Thank you:)
      Your fellow wow dungeon & raiding player,
