Hi everyone,

I'm new and looking for mage bindings / hotkeys especially for fire spec. :)

Are there some good suggestions? Couldnt find any for Legion.

I am good with a complete "layout" so that I can adapt that playstyle from.

 

Thanks guys.

There aren't many needed Macros if any at all for Fire.  You could macro in your trinkets with your CDs, such as burning an on use trinket with Combustion but I think it's pretty wasted.

 

Everything is centered around Combustion burn, as such you can't simple macro everything together and nuke.

I think you got me wrong. I mean keybinds like spell1 = a, spell2 = b

I know I could to it by myself, just like to know if there are any good suggestions like from a high skilled player.

You can divide the spell mentioned in the Fire Mage Rotation Guide into categories. Spells that you cast often should be bound on keys you can easily access.

Cooldowns (1+ Mins): 
Combustion
Rune of Power

Generally you can bind these to R/T or Z/X/C/V

Normal Rotation(No cooldown - 12 Seconds Cooldown)
Fireball
Fireblast
Pyroblast

You would want to bind these to 1-3

Short Cooldown (12 seconds - 1 minute)
Flame On
Phoenix's Flames
Dragon's Breath

Suggest you bind these to Q/E/F or 4-6

AoE Rotation:
Flamestrike
Living Bomb

Z/X/C/V/G or 7-9

Utility:
Spellsteal
Shimmer/Blink
Counterspell
Ice Floes

Counterspell should be on a quick access button like Q/E/F/C/V
You can replace your backpaddle button ( S ) with Ice Floes since it is a movement spell.
The other can be bound on a Shift modifier of 1-6, Q/E/F

      I feel like I should be performing better as a frost mage at my specific level. If some of you don't mind taking a look at my logs and letting me know what I could do to improve, it would help me out a lot. 
      A lot of people have told me once i get bracers and shard that my dps will normalize for my ilvl. Is this true? I follow the standard for frost mage st rotation: dont eat Ice-lance procs, don't waste insta flurries, spend flurries by frostbolt>flurry>Ice-lance, etc. If I am missing something, please let me know. 
      Here are some logs to look at.

      Been loosing to secret mages a lot lately. Anyway to counter them? The spells they have are annoying and they are able to kill of my big minions using fireball, polymorph etc. How do you counter them?

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      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.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Hi, I have a problem with my frost mage. I'm pissed, because  I really don't know how  I can improve my dps. I know the rotation, I've watched many guides and my dps is still low.
