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

      So uhm, first post here and i take the opportunity to take you guys through my fabulous journey into "breaking" the tavern brawl this morning.
       
      So i get on that six-shooter tavern brawl with a mage decklist ( just cause i need them gold from quest ya know :D ) and on my second or third game,
       
      I play Research Project my opponent had then 10 cards in hand and draws for the turn, but no deck refill.... He then plays Barnes, no minion comes up from the battlecry. so it aint a visual bug. start my turn, play another Research Project, my opponent fatigues for 1+2, i can then OTK him with my 0 costs spells due to my 4 copies of Sorcerer's Apprentice.
      Fun fact, the tavern brawl clearly says; Make a six-card deck and duel! Don't worry - when you're out of cards you get a free reload!.
      Can anyone recall to this happening to them or no one had the cojones to mill?

      Hi
      I am currently looking for people to pop into my streams and see if I can improve my dps rotation and all around wow play. Any feedback is appreciated

      So I've got these two specific items. The ACI is one of the most used trinkets on shadow priest, but compared to the Infernal, it has a low ilvl. The effect of Infernal stacks every second, and since critical strike is now the bis stat for shadow priest,  which one of the trinkets would you pick? 🙂
       
      Thanks in advance! 🙂

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/XRqCaL6jFVpW9MnG#fight=5&type=summary&source=23&view=events
      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.
