Magebomb Snapshotting Guide

Recommended Posts

Could someone provide a rough estimate of the amount of increased dps one could expect in a single target SOO normal  boss fight of optimal play with snapshotting vs. optimal play without snapshotting? (Would it be on the order of say 1%, 5%, 10% etc. ?)

This is very difficult to say because it depends on the quality if the trinkets(The strength of the buff you are snapshotting) and how much haste you have. However you can safely say that there is no such thing as optimal play without snapshotting.

With Patch 6.0 dots no update dynamically, thus the topic is outdated.

 

An exception for mages is Nether Tempest, which damage is increased by each Arcane Charge by 50%.

      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 ?
