General Information

On this page, we explain how to easily play Fire Mage in World of Warcraft — Dragonflight 10.2.7, using the simplest rotation, talent tree, stat priority, gear setup, etc., without sacrificing performance.

This section is intended for players who are new to the game or class, have no intentions of raiding Mythic difficulty, or simply want a more straightforward way to play their specialization without being overwhelmed by the numerous priorities and active abilities that need to be taken into consideration for optimal play.

1.

The Basics for Fire Mage

Fire is a well-rounded specialization that largely relies on planning windows of burst in advance. Generally speaking, it is not very keybind taxing, though the number of actions executed in short succession can easily overwhelm less seasoned players. In this section, we will be focusing on a setup that minimizes the number of buttons and reactivity necessary without unduly compromising overall damage output.

If you are completely new to Fire and need more information on the abilities available to you, you can check out our Spell Summary page.

2.

Talent Choice for Fire Mage

These choices are optimized for ease of use. Although some talents might offer marginally higher gains when played perfectly, these same talents often result in damage losses when utilized by many players. The talents recommended here aim to present the best setup that has very little punishment for unfamiliarity or mistakes.

You can easily import the talent tree below into the game by clicking the "copy export string" button.

If you are looking for the absolute best talents for Fire, which do not compromise on performance for ease of use, you can find a more in-depth analysis on our full talents page below.

Gearing a Fire Mage

3.1.

Stat Choice for Fire Mage

You will want to prioritize stats as follows for both single-target and AoE:

  1. Intellect;
  2. Haste;
  3. Critical Strike;
  4. Versatility;
  5. Mastery.

We recommend you prioritize item levels over specific stats, as they are all close in value.

While the stat priority for classes is normally the same for both the Beginner Mode page and our full guide, subtle differences can still occur. If you want to see the full explanation of the stat priority, as well as the absolute top choices for the priority, head to our full stats page below.

If you are interested in finding out about the specific best-in-slot items from the current tier, or want more information on how to gear, we suggest reading the full gearing page below.

Basic Rotation for Fire Mage

Below, we have outlined a basic priority list for Fire Mages.

  1. Cast Shifting Power Icon Shifting Power when you have no Fire Blast Icon Fire Blast stacks remaining.
  2. Hardcast Pyroblast Icon Pyroblast if Sun King's Blessing Icon Sun King's Blessing is active.
  3. Use Combustion Icon Combustion when available.
  4. During Combustion Icon Combustion, use Fire Blast Icon Fire Blasts to convert Heating Up Icon Heating Up to Hot Streak Icon Hot Streak until you are out of Fire Blasts, after which you should use Phoenix Flames Icon Phoenix Flames to convert Heating Up to Hot Streak.
  5. Cast Pyroblast Icon Pyroblast when you have Hot Streak Icon Hot Streak. Cast Flamestrike Icon Flamestrike instead if there are 3+ targets stacked.
  6. Cast Fireball Icon Fireball as a filler to generate Heating Up Icon Heating Up. When the enemy reaches 30% Health or lower, replace Fireball with Scorch Icon Scorch (because of Searing Touch Icon Searing Touch).
  7. Use Fire Blast Icon Fire Blast to get Hot Streak Icon Hot Streaks when you have Heating Up Icon Heating Up.

The above rotation should get you started on your Fire Mage. However, there are many optimizations you can make in your rotation, which can be found in the full detailed rotation guide.
