I am using combustion now to help with dot tracking, and I know it warns me about a wasted hotstreak, but how can I better control the hot streak/heating up pattern so that I can roll from casted spell to Inferno Blast to insta pyro, to combustion..

 

 

  2 yrs ago I wouldn't have even needed to ask, but I am quite rusty PLUS all the 6.0 changes to abilities, ability pruning, and talent changes.

 

-Thank you in advance for any assistance y'all can provide.

Generally u allways want to get both Procs (heating up and Pyro) before doing something special.

 

Your normal rota is:

 

1. Fireball until heating up

2. When Heating up, fireball and infero blast.

3. When Heating up and Pyro, use fireball and then pyro instantly (if both up again just repeat)

4. If u just have Pyro, continue fireballing until both proc, then do step 3.

 

For big Ignite:

 

Set up a Heating Up + Pyro Proc, cast another Fireball and use Pyro. You most likely will get another Pyro, use it instantly (this means no fireball in between) if u are decently lucky u get another pyro use it aswell. So u just used 1 fireball and then 3 pyroblasts afterwards. --> combust

 

If u do that <20 sec after fight start, all your trinkets will be up and potion is still up ending up in a combustion of 8-15k depending on procs and your ilvl.

 

This is the ideal scenario to use combustion. Afterwards spread it if there is a second target with infero blust. If u get unlucky, u might have to build up your ignite again. There comes your addon into play. If your ignite is something low (5k ish) u might consider to build up again before using combustion. However - if your trinkets go on cd, u might not reach more than 5k afterwards aswell. Thats why u track trinket cooldowns wink.png

Pretty much what the OP said. Only one addition, if you have very low crit levels, I'd recommend replacing the standard Hot Streak animations with custom ones using WA. That way you can show the cooldown and if you are extremely unlucky, you will know when Hot Streak ends.

I really don't know how. Think my highest combustion was 12k ignite? Not sure if that was a one time thing, but I do reach 10k ignites on burst constantly.

So general stat question:

 

I'm confused on our stat priority as fire 6.0.2

I've read both  Crit> Multi > Mast   and  Mast > multi > crit

 

What are you guys prioritizing?

This is more or less how us fire mages need to now get our big pyro crits now, since we don't have access to POM or alter time anymore. And that snapshotting has been removed from the game. Now I will admit I haven't run a SoO in about 6 weeks now. Was waiting for 6.0 to drop. But I have achieved a 25k pyro crit on a ordos pull just after 6.0 dropped using that general rotation. So big crits are possible, I am averaging big pyro crits of about 12-15k. Right now my ilvl is at 571 with my crit on my gear at just under 55%. I am gonna be running my first guild raid this comming week since 6.0 dropped. If I can achieve anything better than that I will update this.

Crit > Mastery and always use KTT

 

I actually had mixed results with this priority. For me Crit ~= Mastery worked quite better. With short kill times in mind Mastery is a very competitive stat.

With respect to KTT, it does work better for consistent damage, but I did have some very big bursts with BBoY. Basically a tradeoff to consider.

 

And about the rotation, basic pyro camping method works well.

However, I use the slightly modified version which lets having higher 2pc uptime, this works as follows:

1. Do simple camping when you're below 3 stacks.

2. Since you have time to put in 2 fireballs without loosing the stacks, if you have HS but no HU from first fireball, fire your pyro with the second fireball when at 3 stacks or above. This gamble usually pays off and allows more frequent use of IB without HU munching.

      Hello all! I figured i'd make this thread to get some up to date information on the AOE rotation for unholy.  Currently i'm 935 ilvl, and I run Incstructor's fourth lesson and Soul. (For lack of a better option.) However it is my understanding that these two legendaries make for the strongest aoe rotation. Is this true?

       That is my first question. My second is what is the priority for aoe when running these two. Is it to wait for defile to drop, then festering wound a target a couple times, then Scourge Strike? Or is the priority to just put Wounds on then pop them asap, dropping the defile whenever it's available. Typically I wait for defile before I start building Wounds, but given the soul and the extra talent, i suspect it's better to just aoe without Defile if it's unavailable or perhaps just better to rarely spend runes on defile? Curious as to your thoughts!

      Hi, 

      Im having wierd issue with Opportunity skill. It happens everytime I  have 5cp+ and  Opportunity proc.

      What Im doing is casting Run Through with 5cp+, note that I have Opportunity proc, after using Run Through my Ruthlessness skill refounds 2cp so Im using free Pistol Shot with Opportunity procs. Problem is IM NOT GETTING 3rd combo point.

      Hi
      I have one few questions concerning fury rotation:
      1. Should I use bloodbath only with Battle Cry?
      2. Should I use Rampage immediately after it is available or should I always wait for Frothing Berserker?
      3. During Enrage time, should I spam raging blow or prioritize bloodthirst then raging blow?
      4. Is CoF ilvl860 better then nightmare egg ilvl940?
      Best regards

      Hello. I'm having some problems with DK rotation after starting it. I realize that in the beginning, procs are many. But through the middle of the fight, I begin to notice that everything slows down, including the return of runes and loss of Runic Power. Sometimes I do not own a rune, and I have a lot of Runic Power. But if I spend it, the runes are still coming back, and I have nothing to beat. Please help me. This is normal? Should I use FS only when I'm near overcap? Should I wait patiently for the runes to renegate without hitting FS? I have 25% Acceleration, 27% Critical and 42% Mastery. Thank you in advance.

      Hi all.
      I recently went Guardian from Resto. Theoretically I know my rotation, cd, etc. I'm running Antorus HC, i got the curve and i think to hold with not many problems every boss but seeing my logs my performance is always low.

      I don't know where I make my mistakes but I think to have these issues:
      My damage taken is always minor than other tanks; My damage dealt... same (I build my bear full defense but my dps seems to be too low); Sometimes i have threat problem (especially with paladins or warrior); I should selfheal more but i don't see the need when I am full: i prefer to stack ironfur. What can i do to improve?

      If you wanna see my armor, look here.
      I don't aim to shine, but, at least, be on a average rank :p
       
      Thank you all
