Combustion Questions

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 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.

      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.

      Hi everyone. I just killed HC Varimathras and I was surprised by my low damage. There was not second time warp because we used the first one at 20% HP but I think I should get higher numbers. Can anyone tell me what did I do wrong? Was it really only in TW? I do not think so :/.
