Fire Mage Buff Vs. Stat Priority

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.

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/XRqCaL6jFVpW9MnG#fight=5&type=summary&source=23&view=events
      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.
