Hello there.

I'm a 864 fire mage currently at 6/7H but i really think my dps is too low, maybe is it because i don't have the legendary bracers yet, but still i think it should be better, In my last run in H i started doing the rotation a bit better, (i wasn't doing the crit train as i should) and i improved my dps in 20k. Still i think i should do better.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Talent Choices.  Conflag, Living Bomb, and Cinderstorm are situational.  Heavy Cleave/AOE.  I don't see a use for them on most boss fights.  With classes that have substantially higher AOE than Fire without even using talents for it, I find our mediocre AOE to be not as worth wild on a boss fight.  Therefore, in my personal opinion, you're hurting your DPS on boss fights.

 

On your wipe on Nythendra you had a cast efficiency of 76%.  You missed a lot of stuff.  You used 2 out of 3 possible Combustions, 10 out of 11 PF, 24 out of 34 Fire Blasts.  You failed to convert 3 Fireballs into Hotstreak for a total of 7 out of 10 crits.

You used 1 potion off the start with hero.

Your combustion phase consisted of 5 pyros.  You can get a steady 6 to 7 always.

 

On your kill you fixed your cast efficiency, but you still missed 7 Fireball crits converting them to Hot Streaks, 23 out of 30 crits.

You still only used 1 potion, on hero at the start.  You used 7 total Combustion phases, which is good, but you're lacking still with mostly 5 pyros and you've got 3 rounds with 4 pyros.

 

Looking at the details of your casts, it appears that you are using Combustion then casting ROP.  Huge No No.

Combustion phase needs to work like this.

Pre-pot: Pyro/Fireball Crit?  Hotstreak?  If yes  Then cast ROP then at end of cast immediately use Combustion then go into rotation.

Pre-Pot: Pyro/Fireball Crit?  No?  Continue casting Fireball Crit? Yes Continue Casting Fireball, Crit?  Yes > Go into ROP+Combustion as you entered a hot streak.

If you fail to get a hot streak using Fireball after 10 or so seconds, use a single PF to proc your next Fireball into a Hot Streak.  Then enter Combustion+ROP.

 

Remember, Hot Streak is REQUIRED BEFORE putting down a ROP and using Combustion.  However do not waste your Fireblasts and more than 1 PF to get into a hot Streak prior to burning ROP and Combustion!!!

 

So again. Hot streak > Cast ROP, at end of cast use Combustion > Pyro (use that hot streak up) FB > Pyro > FB > Pyro > Flame On > FB > Pyro > FV > Pyro > PF > Pyro.  Guaranteed 6 Pyros during Combustion.

 

 

Most of your fights you seem to not know what to even do with combustion at all.  You have a couple fights where you burn it over 1 second before casting a ROP, then try to get some Pyros out of it, but then there are plenty of other fights where you don't use it at all.  There are fights where you do use it but it's haphazardly placed.  Literally looking at logs where you dont use Combustion at all until mid way, you use it once, and you don't even use anything to benefit it.  You literally wasted it.

 

That's all I can say right now, you have a lot of improvement to work on.  You need to hammer out the basics of Combustion.

Wiggling Sinew and Devilsaur Shock Baton are considered BIS.  There are a couple others that could be interchanged with Devilsaur Shock Baton that could be better depending on ilvl.

 

Kindling should be used with Pyromaniac talent, period.  Has nothing to do really with your trinkets.  You're stacking crit as a fire mage, therefore the "should I use kindling if I use a crit trinket"is moot.

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs -possibly a raid healer
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!

      <Trust> may be what you're looking for if you enjoy killing internet dragons with a group of like minded players! Currently we are 8/9 Heroic, soon to be stepping into Mythic ToS. We are recruiting to finish rounding out our raid team. <Trust> is located on the [US] Doomhammer/Baelgun pve servers, alliance side! Check us out!
       
      About Us:
      <Trust> is a recently formed guild, founded by a group of long time players that have been raiding together for a couple of years now. Founded out of a desire to continue raiding in a casual-progression manner, we work towards defeating mythic bosses. <Trust> is a raiding guild, first and foremost.
       
      Our Raids:
      <Trust> maintains a progression-oriented 2-day semi-casual raiding team. That's 'semi' as in we expect our team members to always prioritize life first; but not 'casual' as in we take downing bosses less seriously. We strive to maintain a balance of taking our progression raids seriously while having plenty of laughs along the way.
       
      Raid Schedule:
      Tuesday & Thursday: 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
      Friday(optional): 5p – 8p server (8p – 11p eastern)
       
      Recruitment:
      <Trust> is looking for full time Resto Druid, Mages, Hunters, and Warlocks for our raid team. We are also open for good people to join as casual players, pvpers, with the option to join farm content or alt raids.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: Vims#21684 Azkey#21565
