Fire Mage help with logs

Hey guys, I've been playing Fire mage for the first time since Legion. I did my research on almost everything you need to know on Fire Mages. I've spent hours on the rotation and I believe that I've almost mastered it.

 

Now, the reason I am posting on the forum is because I need advise...

I can't seem to exceed as much as I am suppose to as a fire mage. If I compare myself to what I see on Warcraft logs, fire mages of my ITL, are almost always first or second DPS. And even my fire mage guildie that is slightly under gear does much more damage then me on every fight...

I believe that my gear is decent and so is my artifact tree... I do have decent trinkets ... So my conclusion is that I am missing something in my rotation, or that I am prioritizing something that I am not suppose to...

 

Could anyone help me out? I have my latest Warcraft logs, here is one of them  https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/12079061/latest#boss=1841

If you need any more , I could link the entire raid last week.

Thank you!!

One simple question, why are you switching to unstable magic, but you keep conflagration? Conflagration is pretty much useless single-target. You did 1 million damage with it, imagine how much damage the extra pyro's would do during that fight. Plaguehive is also useless. You want 2 crit trinkets, or the tongue trinket from lair as 2nd. 

 

It's kinda hard to analyze what you're doing wrong, best I would suggest is search up rikhlulz on youtube and watch his opener. Another thing you might be doing wrong is not saving your CD's for combustion. You should ALWAYS have rune of power and flame on for combustion. I am currently running cinderstorm myself because kindling fucks up my timings. Hope this helped you abit

Thanks for the input!

I've kept Conflagration because I believed it was stronger in the long fights, due to the dot ticking... I'll give Pyromanic a try this week and see if it makes a huge difference.

Plaguehive is being used because it's the only luck I've had so far with trinkets. Still waiting for my BiS trinkets to drop... :(

 

I will look up Rikhlulz, that's a good idea, maybe my opener isn't the best that's why I am lacking in the meters. I always try to pair RoP and combustion... I know its crucial to have those 2 together with Flame On and at least 2 PF. I've also speced in Cinderstorm and will try out living bomb this week during raid..

It's hard to always have the best talents for every fight since EN some bosses are mostly single target and others have adds/cleave mobs... But ill keep practicing until I give up on fire and go frost with 7.1 :P.

I suggest you try to get Wriggling Sinew asap. I can also list up what talents you should use for each boss if that would help you.

Mythic only:

Nythendra - Pyromaniac, Shimmer, Rune of Power, flame on, ice floes, unstable magic, cinderstorm

Il'gynoth - Conflagration, shimmer, rop, fo, if, living bomb, kindling

elerethe - same as above

ursoc - same as above, change to pyromaniac & living bomb out with unstable magic

dragons, same as above, change back to conflagration & living bomb

cenarius same as above with unstable magic

xavius same as above

kinda rushed through this might be confusing idk

You really shouldn't be using Conflag.  Switch over to Pyromaniac.

 

Your opener should always be a pre-pot with a Pyro cast.  4.5 seconds before the pull.  Typically causing your second cast (fireball) to enter you into a hotstreak.  With this Hotstreak, ROP+Combustion then right into a ton of Pyros.  Using Flame On to get the most you possibly can out.  Use Fireblast x4 (with flame on) before using PF as PF has a slight delay.

Then after your "burn" opener, go into your regular pyro fishing rotation.  You can use ROP 3 times before combustion is re-charged.  It will recharge (if done correctly) when the 4th ROP is charged.  Ensure all of your CDs are ready for ROP+Combustion and go back into it again.

Get rid of that green INT trinket.  You already have a Devilsaur Shock Baton, get a Wiggling Sinew even if it's LFR.

 

Link your Armory.  Also list actual fights, not rankings.

 

If you have crit, and you follow the correct priority rotation, you should be doing near 300k or higher sustain in Heroic.

This is simply not true. It's alot of different ways to open, I find that (2sec on pull timer)Pot>RoP>Time warp>Phoenix's flames> Fireblast>Combustion>Pyro>Fireblast>Pyro>flame on>fire blast>pyro>fireblast>pyro>phoenix's flame>pyro>phoenix's flame>pyro>RoP>Hardcast wrist procc if u've gotten, if not fireball (u should have another fire blast here.) etc

      Hi!
      I would like to ask somethng about ice lance and other procs aswell.
      To maximize dps, should you always try to get rid of Fingers of Frost procs with ice lances? And if you get flurry proc, do you want to get rid of ice lance procs before casting flurry + lance combo?
      I am not sure how much icicles and maximizing their damage output before dumping them affects your damage.
      Thank you

      Hello everyone.
       
      I've been playing hunter MM as my main for a while, but lately i've noticed that my DPS output might not be as high as it should. A couple of months ago, I tought it might be my ilvl or my mastery that was too low, but i've tried different builds and i still can't get closer to some other hunters I run into some ToS H pugs.
       
      I'm actually sitting at 938 iLvl. Don't have many BiS, but my stats are kinda high. My weapon relics are bad(low ilvl, i'm still stuck with 915 relics), and I still didn't get any other good legendary besides the Soul of the Huntmaster.
       
      So my question is: Am I doing something wrong or it's just my relics/trinkets that aren't very decent? I was happy when i get past the 1M dps mark, but now i'm stuck at that point, and I can't see to get past that.
       
      Here's my armory link: https://worldofwarcraft.com/pt-br/character/azralon/piccola
       
      Hopefully you guys can help me out on this. Thanks!

      <Cryogenic> - 4/9M - Recruiting all RDPS classes for an immediate raid spot to round out our 20m roster. Tues/Weds 7-11 SERVER. Discord/Flask/Food provided for raiders. 925++. Pst for more info!!!

      The guild was founded by a group of friends with a mission, to progress through mythic raids without the toxic environment. The guild was formed halfway through EN and despite the late start we built a solid core of raiders and down 5/7M EN before the Nighthold was released. We ended up having to break up as soon as we cleared heroic Nighthold, but we are back with a vengance here on Stormrage now. 

      CURRENT PROGRESSION:
      Emerald Nightmare -- 5/7M
      Trial of Valor -- 3/3H
      Nighthold -- 10/10H 5/10M (Guild break after Gul'dan kill)
      Tomb of Sargeras -- 9/9N 9/9H 4/9M
      MOST RECENT KILL: MYTHIC SISTERS OF THE MOON

      LOOKING FOR:
      We are currently looking for people that can commit to all raid days, who will show up prepared and not waste our time or their own time. We understand that real life happens, but we do ask that our raiders maintain at least 90% attendance and that can make sure they can raid without interruption. We don't have any strict attendance policies/punishments, however it is important for us to keep our progression as strong as possible, which relies heavily on raid wide attendance. 

      RAID TIMES:
      Tuesdays: 7-11 Server (EST) Mythic/Progression
      Wednesdays: 7-11 Server (EST) Mythic/Progression
      Thursday 8-11 Server (EST) Optional Heroic/Normal

      We also often run old content (M EN/ToV/Nightbane/Nighthold) as well as constant M+ groups throughout the day. These runs are 100% optional.

      RECRUITMENT:
      We are currently looking for all exceptional players to rebuild our raid team. We don't care about item level or prior experience. We want quality players to learn, grow, and progress with. We currently have a very strong core of raiders, but with attendance issues and people quitting wow, we are strongly shifting our focus on finding players that excel at their class/spec to round out the last few spots in our main roster. 

      CURRENT NEED:
      ALL DPS CLASSES - (ranged more so than melee)
      ALL EXCEPTIONAL PLAYERS

      EXPECTATIONS:
      We expect all raiders to come to raids prepared. This means: 
      - Having the correct gems/enchants (200 gems)
      - Class knowledge
      - Raid preparation. 
      We only raid 8 hours a week, so it is imperative that we don't waste time.All underpreforming players, regardless of rank and class, will be benched until performance can be brought up to par for the current content. We are not interested in carrying anyone, and if you cannot perform raid mechanics, then we are not the guild for you. Cauldrons and food will be provided by the guild bank when available. Everyone in the guild is taken care of, and this is done primarily through donation by our members. Our guild is a small community and we all pitch in to get things done.

      LOOT SYSTEM:
      As a guild we opt to run loot through a loot council that is run by the officers. Loot is distributed in a way that most benefits the raid team in terms of progression. Distributing loot factors are performance/attendance/role/rank (I.E. Trials are typically lower on loot priority. (Higher rank than takes priority over trial) Loot is always dished out in a way that is most beneficial to the guild is a whole, and is a completely transparent process to avoid drama. We use the add-on RClootcouncil for ease of distribution.

      PRIMARY CONTACT:
      Recruitment Officer - Riotzin (FrostyDog#155103)

      OTHER CONTACTS:
      Guild Master/Raid Leader - Dêv (CrispyD#1823) 
      Lootmaster/Co-GM - Beanboss

      Anyone listed can answer any further questions you may have pertaining to the guild as well as conduct your interview in our guild discord.

      Good day people of the forums!
      Heavy Metal Gaming (Kel'thuzad) is a 2 day, casual raid guild looking to recruit a few more as we are coming to an end to ToS, and looking ahead to the next tier. Due to RL things, we have lost a couple of our key raiders and are in need of replacing/adding to our roster.
       
      Although we are casual, the roster is made up of exceptional players, and we are looking for like-minded/skilled players that are vocal in discord, and engage with the rest of the guild.
       
      The guild and group is made up of friends that have been gaming together for 10+ years. Many of us previously raiding in Top 50 guilds during TBC, WoTLK, and Cata.
      For Legion we are AOTC for all raid content and will continue to be.
      We are looking for:
       
      DPS
      Ranged:
      Hunter
      Warlock
      Mage
      Shadow Priest
      Ele Shaman
       
      Raid Times
      Tuesday & Wednesday 7-10PM Mountain time
      If you are interested in a laid back guild, but still want to crush heroic raids please respond to this thread, or feel free to add me:
      in game: Deadly#1230
      Or on discord: Deadly#2239
