Fire Mage on sims?

Seems like fire mages are pretty fucked. I know not to trust sims 100%, but WHAT happened?

The guides are also updated and they still see Fire as top, so I don't know what to think right now. And looking at the patch notes I see why Frost is top with all the damage increases.

The 7.1 sims doesn't really seem right at this point. Fire got nerfed by ~3% and other specs were buffed.

Fire isn't fucked at all and what I've seen still on top. Arcane is able to be in first position, but that needs hell of a gear.

It turns out it might not have been a hype thing after all. Frost is probably better now in ST and in 1-2 Cleave. EN has extremely favourable fights for Frost at the moment, but I would stick to Fire for Mythic+. Arcane is really close, but it has extremely clunky mechanics and rotation + the movement issue.

All specs are close at the moment, so now you at least have the freedom of choice. The problem is artifact progression and legendaries, eg. I would probably stick to Fire if I had the Pyroblast bracers.

Mind that I used the word probably in the beginning. Sims are showing good results for Frost and as the days pass, the theory that Frost is better now gains more ground but we also have to wait for updated logs from the past few days to be certain. I am constantly on the Mage Discord reading as much as I can so I will let you know about whatever comes up :)

EDIT - Also bear in mind that people have admitted that the BC/TV build for Frost may be simmining too high at the moment, since human error plays an important role with all the procs and spells coming off cooldown etc.

Alright cool, just keeping in my mind all the changes. I JUST got the freaking bracers so I was just looking for answers to the sims kinda being madness. Thanks! I'll def be on the mage discord too. Thanks again!

      Evening fellow spell chuckers!
      - Logs (Entire HC Farm Raid)
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/RPZK8MngjtWTAzry#boss=-2&difficulty=0&type=damage-done&source=2
      - Armoury Link
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/argent-dawn/arcere
      - Rotation
      Icy Veins recommended (Glacial Spike). Talents as seen in Armoury.
      - Issue
      Disparity between fights, parsing blue on some and green on others and general underperformance DPS-wise.
      Not very talented with Logs Analysis I will be honest, but I have oftentimes fewer casts which could be attributed to moving too much/panicking during mechanics and sometimes the spells appear to not hit as hard by average.
      Some suspect some fights hold my lower than normal FPS as a partial contributor to my low DPS, but I am certain it's purely a rotational/skill combination error on my part, or not utilizing my tools as I should.
      I run Shard of Exodar and Sephuz as it is the best combination according to SimCraft and I have optimized the gear with what I have using the same tool.
      Shattercapped (by far, a little too far) and Haste approx 35%.
       
      Please send help, as I am breaking my brain with what I am doing wrong! 
       
      Thank you in advance!

      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 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

      My damage is low in mythic tos so I've switched to the more preferred spec of firestarter and kindling for some bosses. I have the Pyro bracers and the belt. Desperate to improve my damage. 
      Questions. 
      1.Should I use the bracer proc below 30 percent when I'm in the belt execute phase?
      2. Should I be waiting for Incanter's flow to be on five before using combustion (a bit like that old rogue ability (bandit's guile?)) or is it bad to wait?
      3. Should I be using conflag on fights where I have to switch target like Harjatan? 
      4. How do you deal with having to cancel a long pyro in movement fights?
      Any other advice on my spec/gearing/logs is welcome x
