I'm not an expert on FIre, but generally it is not very good for single target fights like Butcher and Kargath, there's not much you can do about it. You should do better on multple target fights. Other than that, looking at that Butcher log:


1) You don't seem to be doing anything until 10 seconds into the fight, which is certainly not optimal. Doesn't help that you wasted several seconds on your prepot that way.

2) You casted 4 Runes of Power; in WoD RoP lasts 3 minutes, not 1 like in MoP, so you should only have recast it once. Despite that, you only had 80% uptime, which is really low. On Butcher specifically you can have near perfect uptime if you time Alter Time correcty for his knockback, or if you use Ice Floes correctly.

3) I'm not sure i understand your opener. You hardcast Pyro as the fight has already started (not recommended), then follow it up with an IB, which means you had some downtime in your casting as you moved rather than positioning with Ice Floes or just standing still. More importantly, you did not set up your meteor/combustion combos correctly. The best way to do it afaik is to get both a heating up and pyro proc, cast meteor, fire off as many pyros as you can get, and after Meteor lands use combustion. You could have done this after your first 3 casts in the fight, but delayed your meteor for a while.

4) No correct Glyphs. This is really, really major, especially the Combustion one.
