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,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      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 or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      My damage is low in mythic tos so I've switched to the more preferred spec of firestarter and kindling for some bosses. I have the Pyro bracers and the belt. Desperate to improve my damage. 
      Questions. 
      1.Should I use the bracer proc below 30 percent when I'm in the belt execute phase?
      2. Should I be waiting for Incanter's flow to be on five before using combustion (a bit like that old rogue ability (bandit's guile?)) or is it bad to wait?
      3. Should I be using conflag on fights where I have to switch target like Harjatan? 
      4. How do you deal with having to cancel a long pyro in movement fights?
      Any other advice on my spec/gearing/logs is welcome x

      Hi, I have a problem with my frost mage. I'm pissed, because  I really don't know how  I can improve my dps. I know the rotation, I've watched many guides and my dps is still low.
