Fire Mage on sims?

Recommended Posts

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!

      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 🙂
