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.

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding and for us to be able to do that we need some more people to fill the gaps. Besides raiding our friendly bunch of members enjoy running mythic+ on daily basis, helping out with world quests among other things. Our discord is usually filled with members for daily banter and weekly fun. If you enjoy all that, you most certainly will enjoy your stay in Volatile.
      Who are we looking for?
      We're primarily looking for ranged DPS to fill out the roster. But we are also interested in any dps class with a good healing offspec. Even though your class isn't listed below, don't be afraid of getting in contact with us.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - Open
      Melee DPS - Closed
      Overall we're looking for people with a good knowledge of their class/spec who know how to improve their gameplay. Being fairly thick skinned and being able to accept constructive criticism, as well as the occasional jab from some of our more 'outspoken' members, is a big plus too.
      When do we raid?
      We raid two times a week as standard, we often have an additional raid day if necessary. See raid times below. 
      Thursday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Monday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Tuesday: 8pm - 11pm (Additional day)
      Application process:
      We believe the best way to get to know if someone is right for the guild is just to have a chat, rather than go through a long application process. So we'll have a chat, look at logs and possibly run some M+ to get to know each other. If you're interested in joining our mythic raid team, contact any of the following:
      Contact us:
      GM:

      Passive#2900, Malenky (ingame)
