Fire Mage Buff Vs. Stat Priority

3 posts in this topic

Hey everyone. I'm a fire mage and I would like to open a discussion about the Molten Armor and Pyrotechnics buffs.

 

The Fire Mage stat priority says crit is very heavy. I'm curious if crit is a lighter stat now that we get almost 20% crit for free now?

 

I'm noticing I can do some pretty cool reactive rotations now that we get so much free crit, but it's difficult to get Combustion ticks above 3k. Occasionally I get a 4k or 5k, but if I can make that happen on every rotation than my DPS will skyrocket.

 

What do you guys think about dropping a little crit for some mastery? Do you think it'll affect crit chance so much that the damage boost to Ignite is irrelevant? Or do we now have a crit soft cap?

well as i saw in the firemage guide and over at askmrrobot, mastery seems to be an important stat aswell.

i'm abit confused wether i should push up mastery oder crit.

 

askmrrobot has two builds and i dont know which to use.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Trying to get myself geared better but seem to be having problems.  Artifact is almost full on fire.  Just having to unlock the 3rd trait is being a pain.

      So I love this brawlers guild and have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge up until meatball. Now I'm just bitter. I'm a frost mage but I also tried arcane and I can't touch this guy. Ive tried any and ever strategy and buff I'm able to afford and haven't even got him under 50% yet. I'm 865 so I feel like it should be possible I didn't think my gear would be a problem until rank six honestly. So any advice or help or tips or whatever I'm desperate.
