under performing fire mage

Recommended Posts








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 i heard about primal ancients, and i m kinda desperate to get it. Why? It can make my Demon Hunter even powerful then he is now (I deal about 35m damage) So how do you get them? I know how though. Get in a GR 70 and do it Solo, but how do you do it actually? How much do you need to farm this for? A week? A month? A YEAR? The point is, i want primal ancients, and have NO IDEA how to farm them :// so... i need a bit of help for farming :))

      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 🙂

      I'm new to using icy-veins, and I cannot seem to get used to navigating the WoW class guides. Why is stat info the 13th section of the guides, but max level content 6th through 12th? Where do I find comparisons between specs?
