Combustion Questions

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I have a couple of quick questions about Combustion.

If I have 10 stacks of Stolen Time with the 4 piece set bonus from T13, am I better off waiting for the full Ignite + Pyro + Living Bomb Combustion? Or is it more effective to pop a decent Combustion now so that you can get it off its CD faster.

e.g. I have 10 stacks of Stolen Time... boss is affected by a full Ignite off a Firebolt as well as a full Living Bomb... should I wait for a Hot Streak? I could lose some damage as my Ignite/LB tick... Or should I just pop Combustion now and get off a decent DoT now so that I can use it again sooner.

Another question: should I be refreshing Living Bomb right before I use Combustion? Or is the loss in DPS from wasting a GCD as well as from refreshing Living Bomb early not worth the small bump in the Combustion DPS?

It all really depends on the encounter. There are simply too many factors to give you a straight answer but for the most part waiting 10-15 seconds is usually fine. This is all dependent on burn phases and as you get experienced with particular encounters, you just learn the timing. Waiting to time for things like Zon'ozz burn phase, Yor'sahj adds (this is only to see big numbers) or Spine of Deathwing Tendon is important for big numbers.

As far as Living Bomb refreshing don't refresh unless it might run out before the combustion hits. So dependent on latency 2seconds maybe.

With MoP right around the corner, I wouldn't worry too much about maxing out though. Posted Image

      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 🙂
