I am following the rotation given in the class page on here. My parses are terrible for my ilvl and I don't understand what i am doing wrong and why my dps isn't higher. i havent been using firestarter because i feel like the boss is only above 90% for 5 seconds. Been using RoP for most fights because i have T21 4p.

Since this is an older post, I took your Heroic Garothi logs from your most recent raid:

  • You don't use Rune of Power enough. You missed 2 possible casts of it in the fight.
  • When you do use Rune of Power, you use it at the wrong time. Don't use it if you know you need to move in the next 10 seconds. You are standing in it for approximately 8 seconds, meaning you, over the course of the fight (with your 2 missed casts included), missed 30 seconds of Rune of Power damage buffs.
  • You're using the wrists, but you missed your chance to use the proc in Combustion. If you have over 5 seconds left in Combustion (which you did) and it procs, you can hard cast Pyroblast and you'll get a guaranteed-crit, 300% damage Pyroblast.
  • You aren't using your Combustions efficiently. You are entering Combustion with barely any Fire Blast and Phoenix charges, meaning you have to waste your time casting Fireball/Scorch, meaning less 100%-crit Pyros, meaning less damage overall. You need to get as many instant casts into Combustion, meaning as many uses of FB/Phoenix as you can.
  • You missed 2 crits, which hit while you already had a Hot Streak proc. Make sure, if you cast with a Hot Streak proc up, you send your Pyroblast immediately after.
  • You used Combustion above 90%, but you run Firestarter. This completely devalues both of them, since you already have a huge crit chance above 90% from FS. Wait until under 90%, then use Combustion.

Hope this helps.

      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?
