Burst! Then What?

Recommended Posts

Concerning Fire Mage, after I burst and Fire Blast, Flame On, and Phoenix Flame's are on cooldown then what?

Do I cast only Fireball until the 2 Fire Blast and Flame On are off cooldown? Do I cast Fireball until heating up and use the first Fire Blast off cooldown?

I cannot seem to find a good rotation after my burst is finished...

Do I cast Fireball until heating up and use the first Fire Blast off cooldown?

Yes, you're basically just casting Fireball until Heating Up, then use Fireblast to get a Hot Streak and repeat this.

Quote from the guide:

Quote

Whenever you get a Heating Up Icon Heating Up proc, you should convert it to a Hot Streak Icon Hot Streak using Fire Blast Icon Fire Blast. Generally, you will then want to cast a Fireball Icon Fireball, and immediately spend your Hot Streak Icon Hot Streak on a Pyroblast Icon Pyroblast as your Fireball Icon Fireball cast finishes. 

You can use FBs and PFs to get Hot Streaks, but have to keep an eye on your cooldowns (RoP, Flame On and PFs) to start saving them in time, when your Combustion comes off cooldown for another burst!

If you can use Flame On between 2 Combustions depends on your crit-value. You should have it up, for every Combustion.

If you take Kindling, only use Flame On during Combustion. If you take Cinderstorm, use Flame On on Cooldown (delaying it when a combustion is near).

Other than that, what Lily said. Just be careful with your Phoenix Flames usage, since they have a long CD and you want to have 1-2 up for Combustion.

Well you can use PFs to get Hot Streaks, but i wouldn't recommend using PFs outside of a RoP. Rikhh (Top Mage from Nihilum) said that too: Use PFs only on RoP.

 

When using Kindling, i mostly got 2 PFs ready again when my Combustion comes off cooldown, so there wouldn't be much sense to use them earlier. If you get 3 PFs ready way before your Combustion comes off cooldown (with some luck due to phenix reborn), you might want to use one when you got to move (instead of using an Icy Flow Stack).

      Hi everyone. So I've read the guide on fire mage here on Icy-veins and got some questions related to single target rotation. First I'd like to ask about the meteor. It is mentioned that meteor should be used with Rune of Power which is fairly easy to do since Rune of Power is always ready when Metor is off cooldown. However It's also mentioned that Meteor should always be available when Combustion comes off cooldown. Now Combustion has a 2 min cooldown and meteor has 45 sec cooldown. I can use meteor twice while Combustion is on cooldown. However If I use Meteor twice , It is on cooldown when Combustion is ready. Should I wait for Combustion and not cast Meteor on the second time until Combustion is ready?
      Second what I'd like to ask is about Combustion after the opener. Its mentioned that I need a hot streak before I pop It. I fish for Pyros by casting Fireball until I get a crit and then use Fire Blast. However when I get an Hot streak I'm already mid-casting Fireball. Should I cancel the cast and cast Rune of Power or should I let that Fireball hit and immediately after start casting Rune of Power?
      It's also mentioned that I need to have a Fire Blast charge always ready before going in Combustion phase. Should I save up a charge and ignore the Heating Ups I get regardless and hope for Fireball to crit twice or basically wait for Fire Blast to get another charge?
      Thanks 🙂
