3.4. Opening Sequence

 

 

 

instead of 

I suggest Spam wow_icon_spell_fire_fireball02.jpg Pyroblast until wow_icon_ability_mage_hotstreak.jpg Heating Up procs. 

and then do 

1.1. Heating Up Trick

 

Keep casting wow_icon_spell_fire_flamebolt.jpg Fireball until you get another Heating Up. When this happens, cast wow_icon_spell_fire_flamebolt.jpg Fireball again immediately followed by your instant-cast Pyroblast. Fireball and Pyroblast will land on the target at the same time and if any of them is a critical strike, then your current Heating Up will be upgraded and will give you another instant-cast Pyroblast. 

 

I found i did a lot more dps this way on my fire mage than by spamming fireball to get heating up procs. But Of course as suggested, after you get another instant-cast Pyroblast then cast it and cast wow_icon_spell_fire_sealoffire.jpg Combustion. If you do not, you can cast wow_icon_spell_fire_sealoffire.jpg Combustion anyway or use wow_icon_spell_mage_infernoblast.jpg Inferno Blast (if off cooldown) to set up another instant-cast Pyroblast before casting Combustion. As instructed under

3.3.1. Tips for Combustion

Why does it rate mastery slightly above haste in our stat priority then tell us to gem crit/haste versus crit/mastery?

Spamming pyroblast is a dps loss. Not only do you hardcast a spell with a far lower DPET, you also reduce the amounts of heating ups you get over a period of time.

Because the other alternatives in a red sockets are Haste/Mastery and Intellect/Mastery, neither of which is better than Haste /Crit.

Have you tried spamming scorch to get pyro procs? I ve been wondering how that may work out. After a certain % crit, wouldnt it be better to just spam scorch to get pyro procs for higher dps? I havent done any of the math so I would like some insight on this.

I don't think alter time is better than ice barrier.. the cooldown is one thing, but the time it stays up is much more important.

i think one gets more damage when using alter time than ice barrier...

 

next is: instable magic.. only applies on fireball and frostfireball (in fire spec) ... on heavy movement you also get more out of living bomb, because you cast mainly scorch till you can sty.. instable magic applies on a 30% proc, wich means 1 out of 3 fireballs may will explode, so i think LB is more reliable.

it may be better if instable magic also applies to scorch and pyroblast... because, i don't have soo many fireballs when I'm in my dps rota.. there is more like pyro pyro infernoblast pyro .. and than a fireball

Hang on Intellect/Crit is available and those are the top 2 Stats on the list.

Not worth it.

10 Haste / 10 Crit is better than 5 Intellect / 10 Crit. Intellect is only better than Haste point for point. It's not twice as good.

Was a possible playstyle back in 5.4.8. With the nerfs to scortch damage it's not worth it.

New here, so *waves*

 

A lot of time I find myself opening with the following:

 

1. Living Bomb

2. Inferno Blast (to spread the Bomb love around and crit)

3. Combustion

4. Inferno Blast (since the Combustion reset its cooldown, hits the second crit and procs...)

5. Pyroblast

 

;)

noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo don't do that.
You need a high ignite to combust. Otherwise you lose so much damage.

Two guesstions:

  • Single target rotation: when moving, using Ice Floes and Fireball is preferable to using Scorch?
  • Multitarget rotation: with Improved FlamestrikeFlamestrike has no cooldown, so casting it "on cooldown" is wrong. Perhaps casting it when its effect wears off (8 sec)?

 

Agreed with both except it's a 4 second dot iirc.

You recast it when ignite runs out. (4-6 seconds)

Is still glyph of Combustion required in WoD for fire? because Meteor applies ignite on the target and it is on a 45 sec cd so without the glyph they have the same CD, so would it not be easier to go without the glyph?

Even if you glyph Combustion, you will still be able to have Meteor up for every application of Combustion, so it does not really matter. What matters though is that, with the glyph, you get to have an increased duration on Combustion when you benefit from Bloodlust/Heroism.

in before all the questions: Yes fire is actually viable now, no not as good on frost on ST yet with current gear, does scale better in later gear.

How do you open when using meteor and heating up trick?

Prepare the trick, if you have Pyroblast! and heating up ready, cast one Pyro, then meteor, then (hopefully)  next Pyro? 

 

PS: thanks a lot for your good work with the guides an the forums!

On a single target boss fight while needing to move a lot is it better to take. Mirror Images meteor and blast wave. I have trouble using crystal seems like it does to quickly and kindling is well yea. rune of power I really can't see using in a lot of fights due to high movement so would mirror images or incanters ward be better?

So what would be best to take mirror images or incanters ward? Sould I use meteor before or after I combust or does it not matter?

What's the reasoning behind waiting to cast inferno blast until after you get a heating up proc? Is it just to simplify the rotation? It seems like you'd want to use it on cooldown if it has a higher DPET than fireball.

      With Mythic+ becoming much more relevant and presumably many more players heading in/returning to the dungeons next week with patch 9.0.5, this video going through some important interrupts for all the Shadowlands dungeons is especially useful!
      Interrupting is one of those anger and conflict-breeding things in dungeons, as fights often break out over a player or players (usually DPS) not doing enough of it, and then because of that there can be many spammed interrupts on 1 ability in response, so it's especially important to know what spells and abilities should be focused on. Tactyks goes through all 8 dungeons and said key interrupt targets:   If you want to prepare for next week's Valor Point system and new gear grind even more, you can also check out our Mythic+ dungeon rankings, weekly routes and specific class tips as well.

      After some community outcry over the new changes coming to keystone next week, Blizzard have detailed a new addition to patch 9.0.5, aimed at improving the weekly Mythic+ keystone generated. Players will be getting their first weekly keystone at the same level of the highest completed key from the previous week! Check out the full and detailed explanation:
      Weekly Mythic Keystones (source)
      One of our goals in 9.0.5 has been to address a situation we introduced in Shadowlands with Mythic Keystones never de-leveling. We received a great deal of feedback on our planned adjustment, which is currently outlined in the 9.0.5 patch notes. With this proposed change, we would reintroduce an awkward dynamic where it wouldn’t be possible to sustain running a single Mythic Keystone dungeon per week, even if you always cleared the dungeon in time, because decay would necessitate re-leveling your keys every other week.
      When we created the original logic for Mythic Keystones in 2016, we wanted to make sure that players were getting Keystones that appropriately suited their proficiency in Mythic Keystone dungeons, and we wanted to reinforce the importance of clean and well-executed dungeon runs. Having Keystones decay from one week to the next accomplished both of those goals. However, in Shadowlands, we introduced the Great Vault and more Season-driven tracking of performance in Mythic Keystone dungeons, and we unintentionally disabled the logic for de-leveling Keystones, but the reasons for the original design still apply.
      We feel that the game should compensate players who consistently succeed at a certain difficulty by giving them keys that start at that level the following week, so we’re working on an update to 9.0.5 that should alleviate that concern while still satisfying the goals of the original system:
      In a given week, if you finish a Mythic Keystone dungeon in time, the next week’s Great Vault will contain a Keystone of that same level. So, for example, if your highest Mythic Keystone completion during week one is a +15 that you completed in time, you will get another +15 Keystone from the Great Vault to start week two. If you run that +15 during week two and fail to meet the timer, however, and complete no other +15 (or higher) Mythic Keystone dungeons the rest of week two, you will receive a +14 Keystone from the Great Vault to start week three.
      Thank you for your feedback and understanding.

      With the announcement of patch 9.0.5 arriving next week many players have been asking how exactly the Mythic+ Valor Point system achievement requirements for item level caps will work in regard to alts, and if they'll have to re-do the achievements on each alt.
      Luckily we do have some fairly official information on the matter, as Blizzard did mention this in a group interview with Chinese sites, where Ion Hazzikostas, Ely Cannon and Frank Kowalkowski answered many questions, this one being particularly relevant:
      While we don't have an explicit blue post stating this, and it wasn't mentioned in any of the many other interviews, it does make a lot of sense. However, we can't take this as an absolute 100% confirmation and will have to wait a few more days until the actual patch arrives. But for now it's safe to at least assume alts will be able to upgrade their (newly dropped) Mythic+ gear without having to re-do the long process of getting the Season 1 KSM achievement.
      Here a couple of reddit threads where the matter is being discussed:
      Will I have to earn ksm on an alt to upgrade my items to 220 during 9.0.5? Are the upcoming m+ valor upgrade achievements account wide? And big thanks to Thanks to SoulAwaken for the translation, so we don't have to address alts as "trumpets", as google translate refers to them.

      Blizzard / NetEase are reverting Hall of Fame / Cutting Edge Sire Denathrius kills and banning players that participated in real money boosting in the Chinese region.
      Yesterday, we reported about the Hall of Fame being tainted by boosts in the Chinese region. You can read the full article here.
      What happened is that the Alliance Mythic Hall of Fame has filled mostly thanks to real money trading, which is against the ToS, and so NetEase, who is in charge of WoW in the Chinese region, have sent quizzes about the Sire Denathrius fight to suspicious accounts, according to nemof.
      Here are some of the questions that they asked about the encounter:
      What causes the boss to phase? What is the number of cabalists in Phase 2? If there is a Blood Prince in Phase 3, and if so, how many? Placeholder for tweet 1367784617671991298 Placeholder for tweet 1367788267429457922 Apparently, some boosters have already been suspended.

      Blizzard just confirmed that cross-realm Mythic Castle Nathria will open with next week's weekly raid reset.
      (Source)
      Earlier this week, the Castle Nathria Hall of Fame filled to completion.
      With the next weekly raid reset (Tuesday morning, March 9 in this region), cross-realm Mythic Castle Nathria will become available.
