"2. Best Legendaries for Fire Mage" lists Raiding 2 times and Chorghast instead of Raiding, Mythic+, Chorghast.

Hi!

You are correct, I will fix this asap!

Thanks for your feedback.

Hi, the stat priority with or without Fevered/ Incanation or Disciplinary Command is the same order. The only difference is that crit becomes better (but still around last) with Fevered Incanation.

It is worth noting however, that stat priorities are just a very rough guideline, and I strongly suggest using top gear sims for your own character over looking at predetermined stat priorities.

Hi, in 5.1 Usage of Combustion you say 

5.Repeat this chain of Pyroblast + Fire Blast until you run out of Fire Blasts.

6.Continue chaining Pyroblasts and Fire Blasts until you are out of Fire Blast charges.

But is this actualy accurate? Dont you want to prolong as much as possible cascade.

So you'll want to only use fireblast, after you got 2 stacks of cascade, after at least one phoenix flames so you can extend the 2 stacks of cascade. Trying for then to end up with a fireblast so you'll have 2 stacks of cascade even after ur combustion ended, and then ultimatly dragons breath for max dmg ??

Hi!

You are correct. The use described there is the "standard" combustion usage. However, with infernal cascade this is more advanced. I go over this more advanced rotation here: https://www.icy-veins.com/wow/fire-mage-pve-dps-rotation-cooldowns-abilities#advanced-opener

However, I will also update the standard combustion section to include this so it's not just listed in the advanced section.

Hi!

This is suggested because even with Bracers having Intellect, Rings still have a higher stat budget than Bracers. (much more secondary stats, outweighing the Intellect loss)

Awesome thanks for the In depth Explanation.

Great guide! 

Possible typo under 5.1 Combustion Usage. 

Under line 5, bullet 3 when you have neither heating up nor hot streak, I think its supposed to be "Combustion + fire blast", not "Combustion+fireball".

Just a heads up, but your "Single Target" and "Multi Target" stat priorities are exactly the same. Just have the one then. Incidentally, they are also completely different from both the Single and Multi target stat priorities in the "Easy Mode" section. 

For now I've gone with the one version for my add-on, taken from the stat priorities section.

Hi,

You are correct. I have updated this, and it should be live soon.

Thanks for your feedback!

Hello, thank you for the guide! I just wanted to let you know that the link to the Dreamweaver soulbind calculator has a missing colon after the https, so it doesn't currently work (I just added it and it loaded fine afterwards though).

 Shimmer says its functions the exact same as blink, this is not correct. Blink removes stuns shimmer does not.

Hi!

On the talent page I describe that it functions the same, except that it does not interrupt spellcasting, and it does not break stuns.
Did you find it mentioned anywhere where the caveat is not added?

Thanks for feedback!

It would be helpful to remove soul  igniter as no one is using that anymore and wont be going forward

This is a fair argument, I'll be removing it for the 9.2 update, as some people might still be using it currently while gearing up for 9.1 content.

Hey, due to me liking the covenant ability so much I was wondering, can fire mages do fine in necrolord? I am not hardcore but I do still want to do good, I like the necrolord ability a lot and was wondering if it can be viable for fire mage.

Hiya!

This is really gonna depend on your definition of "viable". Necolord is going to do around 5% less dps on single target than venthyr or night fae. For multi-target situations, it's actually quite competitive on lower counts like 2-4 targets, although night fae really is king on like 5+ targets.

I think in most situations Necolord will be completely fine. It'll be hard to be a top parser as Necrolord, but you can definitely perform within 5-10% of the other covenants in practically all situations!
