DPS issues or to be expected?

Recommended Posts

I have only just aquired the level of gear required to start running raids in LFR but am, to an extent, unhappy with my level of DPS which may well be down to my current gear as a Fire Mage.

Sgiandubh

My Rotation consists of:

Passive Pyroblast cast using PoM maco

Lviving Bomb

Inferno Blast - if Heating up is active

Pyroblast! - if up

Combustion

Spam Fireball until any of the above come of cool down or proc

I always cast Invocation before a boss in order to achieve the buff.

Now I know my gear could be better, which I am working towrads (I hate those trinkets) but I have used AskMrRobot to optimize my gear as much as possible.

In LFR I achieve int he region of 42k+ DPS but feel my DPS suffers slightly from the fact that I seem to burn through the mana now more than i ever have and have to stop regularly in order to cost another invocation, albeit this then refreshs the damage buff that coems with it.

Is the DPS reasonable based ony my current gear or is there something I am nto doing that will make a difference?

That dps is reasonable at your gear level. Make sure you are prioritizing Evocation to keep the buff from Invocation active, that should help with the mana issues also. Also make sure to prioritize Pyroblast! over Inferno Blast. If you had a pyro proc and a heating up proc before you used the Pyroblast! You would lose a Pyroblast proc by not casting it before you Inferno Blast.

      Hi everyone. So I've read the guide on fire mage here on Icy-veins and got some questions related to single target rotation. First I'd like to ask about the meteor. It is mentioned that meteor should be used with Rune of Power which is fairly easy to do since Rune of Power is always ready when Metor is off cooldown. However It's also mentioned that Meteor should always be available when Combustion comes off cooldown. Now Combustion has a 2 min cooldown and meteor has 45 sec cooldown. I can use meteor twice while Combustion is on cooldown. However If I use Meteor twice , It is on cooldown when Combustion is ready. Should I wait for Combustion and not cast Meteor on the second time until Combustion is ready?
      Second what I'd like to ask is about Combustion after the opener. Its mentioned that I need a hot streak before I pop It. I fish for Pyros by casting Fireball until I get a crit and then use Fire Blast. However when I get an Hot streak I'm already mid-casting Fireball. Should I cancel the cast and cast Rune of Power or should I let that Fireball hit and immediately after start casting Rune of Power?
      It's also mentioned that I need to have a Fire Blast charge always ready before going in Combustion phase. Should I save up a charge and ignore the Heating Ups I get regardless and hope for Fireball to crit twice or basically wait for Fire Blast to get another charge?
      Thanks 🙂
