Best Gems for Fire Mages


Gems From Jewelcrafters

As a Fire Mage, most of your gems will come from Jewelcrafters. Chaotic Skyfire Diamond Icon Chaotic Skyfire Diamond is, by far, the best Meta gem for any caster class, but needs two Blue gems such as Glowing Shadowsong Amethyst Icon Glowing Shadowsong Amethyst (with Glowing Nightseye Icon Glowing Nightseye being the budget version of it) to be activated.

Always gem Runed Crimson Spinel Icon Runed Crimson Spinel (Runed Living Ruby Icon Runed Living Ruby budget version) unless told otherwise in our BiS gear guides. Epic gems from Heroic dungeons are unique, so you can only have one of each at a time. In order to activate a socket bonus with a Yellow gem, or to make up for missing Hit Rating, Veiled Pyrestone Icon Veiled Pyrestone (Veiled Noble Topaz Icon Veiled Noble Topaz budget version) is the best craftable option. If you need no more Hit Rating, Potent Pyrestone Icon Potent Pyrestone (Potent Noble Topaz Icon Potent Noble Topaz budget version) is the play for Yellow sockets, if activating the socket bonus is required.


Gems From Heroic Dungeons

Epic gems can drop from bosses in Heroic dungeons and are usually better than their budget counterparts from Jewelcrafting. However, they are unique, so you can only have one of each gem at a time. Furthermore, most of them are worse than their epic counterparts from Tier 6 raids.

Fluorescent Tanzanite Icon Fluorescent Tanzanite from Heroic Blood Furnace is your best Blue gem, followed by Glowing Shadowsong Amethyst Icon Glowing Shadowsong Amethyst.

Should you lack Hit rating in a blue gem slot, you may use Vivid Chrysoprase Icon Vivid Chrysoprase from Heroic The Slave Pens or Lambent Chrysoprase Icon Lambent Chrysoprase from The Underbog. For yellow gem slots, Veiled Pyrestone Icon Veiled Pyrestone (Veiled Noble Topaz Icon Veiled Noble Topaz budget version) is the preferred option if you lack Hit rating. If not, the Tier 6 gems discussed above and Shining Fire Opal Icon Shining Fire Opal from The Mechanar Heroic, or Potent Fire Opal Icon Potent Fire Opal from Heroic Auchenai Crypts if you are the most preferable gems.



Blackened Basilisk Icon Blackened Basilisk, Poached Bluefish Icon Poached Bluefish and Crunchy Serpent Icon Crunchy Serpent all serve the same purpose. The 23 Spell Power are superior to any other buff food available and stack with the festival buff foods, such as Midsummer Sausage Icon Midsummer Sausage. Their Spirit can also be converted to Spell Damage by Priests' Improved Divine Spirit IconImproved Divine Spirit for 2 more Spell Damage, as 10% of your Spirit will turn into Spell Damage.

Flame Cap Icon Flame Cap increases Fire Damage by up to 80 for 1 minute. Has a 3 minutes cooldown which is shared with Mana Gems. So you can either use a Mana Gem or this.

Flask of Pure Death Icon Flask of Pure Death is the best and most powerful consumable available to you, tightly followed by the Flask of Supreme Power Icon Flask of Supreme Power

Super Mana Potion Icon Super Mana Potions and Destruction Potion Icon Destruction Potions need to be used as required. Destruction Potion is usually considered the better potion, if used with Icy Veins IconIcy Veins, but running out of Mana makes you deal no damage. Always be prepared to use both potions.

Brilliant Wizard Oil Icon Brilliant Wizard Oil is going to be your best weapon oil, as Fire benefits a lot from the Critical Strike chance and the added Spell Damage.
