The only thing that confuses me is the recommendation to always use level 1 empowered Fire Breath, since the only reason given is for Burnout procs. There's a box you can tick to indicate you have Burnout talented, but that reasoning still shows even when Burnout isn't ticked, which doesn't make sense.

Hey,

 

The reason for this is the Catalyze talent. This increases the tick rate of your Fire Breath DoT, so by using Rank 1 Fire Breath you gain more total damage over a Rank 3/4 Fire Breath.
 

I'll look at making this interaction a bit clearer on the guide pages. Thanks for the feedback!

I'm having a little trouble with the Rescue Macro and understanding how it works. Here is the macro listed currently
 

#showtooltip
/cast [@mouseover, help, nodead] [] Rescue

The order of events when you cast rescue are 1) button press; 2) Select location target; 3) Select player target; 4) execute. From what I see, this macro doesn't account for selecting a location. If this macro works, my thought is that it will work as a sudo intervene. Can someone elaborate on this?

So I've been curious about something in this guide. The guide, at the beginning, says that it's of utmost important that our abilities' cooldowns don't get desynced. However, the usage of 'Feed the Flames' causes exactly that, as it makes Fire Breath's CD be reduced by a total of 3 seconds but Eternity Surge for only 1 second (because of Eternity's Span talent) which causes the two empower abilities' CDs to de-sync with each other.

Is that intended, or am I missing something here?

So this is written by a tank that no longer tanks and doesnt intend to main an evoker even for one season. Man Icy Veins has really gone down hill since I last checked this place.

Hello

The spell conditions are:
1) Get the Player
2) Set Target Location
3) Execute the spell

Therefore the macro works in this order. Mouseover picks the player; then you set the location, and then you fly there.

Also verified this behaviour in the game.

Hey.

It's a bit counter-intuitive concept is true. You want to use your empowered abilities as often as possible, but you must have them both available (or coming off cooldown when you use them in Dragonrage, Fire Breath as first global and Eternity Surge as second or third) for your Dragonrage windows to extend the duration with Animosity. This is more true when you have Feed the Flames, as this can extend the duration twice in a single Dragonrage cast.

Outside of that, them being desynced doesn't matter all that much, but as soon as you see Dragonrage has less than 30 seconds remaining on its cooldown you want to be more mindful of your empowered spell usage.

Hope that makes sense. I'll look at making this wording clearer in the future. Thanks for the feedback!
