Hello Community,

I am an experienced Mage player since BC, however I am not satisfied with my mage Damage as it is at the moment:

Would you point out possible Improvements or grave mistakes visible in the logs?

Thank you very much!

Hey :)

Some points to mention (just took a short look at the Nythendra fight):

1. Use you Sinew 3 or 4 seconds before the pull, so you should reach the 10th stack while still inside your RoP.

2. Don't use Flame On outside of Combustion. You should delay it, to have it ready for every burst, to get the best out of it.

3. Use your second pot as well while bursting, to fit more casts inside the duration of it.

4. Never cast Fireball while Comb is up. If you're out of instants, cast Scorch to get another crit.

 

Hopefully these points improve you a little bit further but according to the ranking (64 in your bracket), you aren't that bad :)

Hey Lily,

 

thank you for your reply!

 

1. Great tip, thank you!

2. Really? Won't this ruin a lot of possible hot streaks, because I have no instant to finish a heating up?

3. True, I already thought that too. I could use that one better for sure!

4. This I do not get. Why would I go for scorch? It is not 100% crit anymore, right?

 

Thank you!

4. During combustion, everything will critically strike, so scorch is the best option if you have no instants because it is a quick cast, therefore having more pyroblasts. 

You should also have alot more critical strike rating in my opinion.

2. Well it is possible, that you lose some Hot Streaks. But you will get another 6 Pyros inside your Comb+RoP.

4. I wanted to say, that you shouldn't cast Fireball while you have the Combustion-Buff. You're losing time compared to Scorch and if Comb is up, every cast will crit :)

And in general: Fire DMG is mostly coming from our bursts :)

You want to use Flame On on cooldown, you just need to be sure it's up for Combustion.  You need to be using it to maximize your dps.

 

You shouldn't be casting anything in Combustion except Pyro, FB, PF, and Flame On.  You shouldn't be using Fireball OR scorch inside combustion.  You should be going into combustion with a hot streak already, leading to pure pyro spam.

my man at the beginning i had some problems too. u should use the talents recommended by all guides for starters. That is Pyromaniac or Conflagration (if you are a rookie and rotation seems hard take conflag),shimmer,rune of power,flame on ,ice floes,unstable magic or living bomb (again if u are a rookie i suggest unstable magic u have to use living bomb at the right times if u want it to work really well-although if u do u get huge difference in AoE) and finally kindling. Now with kindling ur combustion cd is going to go from 2mins to less than 1 min with enough crit- usually enough crit =around 60%) so that means u never use flame on outside of combustion. so u should save flame on,at least 2 charges of phoenix flame and 1 rune of power for when combustion gets off cd.Then ur rotation should be something like that:  Fireball till u get heating up then use fire blast to make it a hot streak and then Rune of power (and combustion at the end of the rune of power cast) and then fire blast -pyroblast-flame on-fire blast-pyroblast-fire blast-pyroblast-fire blast-pyroblast-phoenix flames -pyro-phoenix flames-pyro. if u use time warp u can get in combustion time another phoenix flames pyro at the end.Finally never stay with 3 stacks of phoenix flames or 2 stacks of Rune of power -it is just dps loss. For ur aoe besides living bomb ur flamestrike and ur ignite will do the job but u need to unlock some artifact traits for it to work well. finally u ll see a huge difference in dps when u get OVER 58-59% crit thats the breakpoint

      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
