Addons for Fire Mage
ElvUI is a complete replacement for the default User Interface. Not only is this a popular AddOn among top players, but we here at Icy Veins use it for all our characters. ElvUI eliminates most of the inefficiencies of the Blizzard interface, which are many and varied. It is extremely user friendly, and takes very little time to set up and master. It also comes already furnished with almost everything you need; unit frames, raid frames, minimap, buffs and debuffs, and much more. You can easily unlock and drag all the components around so your UI will look exactly the way you want it to. ElvUI is clean, easy to use, and a great starting point for your UI.
Weak Auras is the most important AddOn for players seeking to master their class and take their gameplay to new heights. If you aspire to do any Mythic raiding, this is the most powerful tool in your kit. Weak Auras allows you to display helpful visuals cues anywhere on your screen, which enable you to play better. Most players use it to track their trinket procs, highlight on screen displays of their most important cooldowns, or track the timers of boss mechanics. It is highly customisable and makes keeping track of your procs and cooldowns effortless. The drawback of Weak Auras is that is has a bit of a learning curve and isn't the most user friendly. Weak Auras allows you to import other players data directly into their UI, however, and most players choose to simply import other people's Weak Auras rather than make their own. Weak Auras can be used to create just about anything you can imagine, as it is a LUA scripting tool (essentially an AddOn that creates other AddOns, in-game). This is by far the most essential AddOn for players looking to step into Mythic raiding.
Boss Mods are helpful pre-made timers that allow you to keep track of the noteworthy mechanics in any given encounter. Usually they come equipped with helpful prompts, visuals, and sounds to ensure you don't miss anything important.
BigWigs is the best boss mod available currently. It is extremely customizable, allowing you to change what is displayed on an individual boss level and how boldly you want each alert customized. BigWigs is typically the most accurate and periodically updated of the available Boss Mods. It doesn't require any setup at all, though there are a dizzying array of options and customizations should you wish to personalize your setup.
Deadly Boss Mods
Deadly Boss Mods is an alternative to BigWigs, though it usually isn't as accurate early in the patch. Most of the alerts are loud and flashy by default, making this a potentially good choice for players who have very little experience in a raid environment.
Nameplates are essential for allowing you to easily keep track of basic debuffs and quickly select new targets in combat. While ElvUI nameplates do come standard with the AddOn, they are a little limited and occasionally buggy. Listed below are some good alternatives.
KUI Nameplates offer the highest degree of customization and accuracy. For example, you can easily configure the nameplates to enlarge and change color when a target reaches a certain percentage of health, which can be very helpful for classes with executes. They always correctly display your debuffs, and their click box is very accurate. Some setup is required, although it is very simple and straightforward.
TidyPlates aren't quite as customizable or accurate as KUI, but they are an improvement over the default UI or the ElvUI nameplates. They are also great out of the box, requiring little to no setup at all, which is a plus for some players.
Damage meters display a variety of helpful data about what is taking place in combat, from your current DPS (or HPS) to the number of interrupts each player successfully used.
Skada is a lightweight damage meter that is exceptionally accurate. It doesn't take up much memory, which could cause you to lag, and displays a wide range of helpful data. This is the recommended damage meter if you log your raid data to WarcraftLogs.
Details is a more heavyweight damage meter, taking up quite a bit of memory. It offers extensive in-game analysis tools compared to Skada, however, allowing you to break down your data in depth without leaving the game. This is the recommended damage meter if you don't log your raid data.
These AddOns are just small trimmings that might make your life a little easier.
Decursive adds a small grid representing your party or raid to your UI. They are simple boxes, no actual information aside from if they are afflicted with a specific debuff type your class can dispel. You simply have to click the box that turned purple to use Remove Curse on a teammate.
Mik's Scrolling Battle Text
If you're not satisfied with the default combat text, this AddOn is an alternative that allows you to heavily customize your scrolling combat text. Quite a bit of setup is required.
DeathNote displays the last several deaths for each of your party or raid members. For 30 seconds prior to their death, a complete timestamp of their combat log is displayed, showing their current health, what heals they received, what buffs and debuffs they had, whether they used their personal cooldowns, etc. This AddOn is helpful for breaking down your own death as well as finding out whether that guy really did use his healthstone.
Whenever one of your abilities comes off cooldown, this AddOn flashes a large transparent version of the ability in the center of your screen, alerting you that it is off cooldown. You can easily configure what is displayed, or use it by default.
This AddOn allows you to set up text assignments that are displayed to everyone else in the raid group that have the AddOn. Extremely beneficial for raiding guilds, particularly when assigning jobs like interrupt orders, or what players are soaking in what quadrants of the room, etc.
Fire Specific Macros
- #showtooltip Combustion
- /cast Berserking
- /cast Combustion
- /use 13
This will cast Combustion and activate the first trinket slot at the same time. Additionally, it will also activate Berserking. If you have a different racial, you can replace Berserking for your racial. Keep in mind, that you can use Combustion while casting other spells, in which case, you will have to keep pressing the macro until after the cast finishes to activate the trinket and racial.
Cast At Cursor Meteor
- #showtooltip Meteor
- /cast [@cursor] Meteor;
This will cast Meteor at the location of your cursor, instead of first showing a targeting circle. You can replace Meteor for any other spell with a targeting circle, like Flamestrike or Ring of Frost.
Soul Igniter One-Button Macro
- /use soul igniter
- /cancelaura soul ignition
This will use the trinket Soul Igniter, and on a second press to shoot it. Since you want to shoot it very quickly upon activating it, you can use this macro to quickly cast and shoot it.
WeakAuras for Fire Mage
Generic Macros for Mages
- /cast Blink
- /cancelaura Ice Block
- /cast Ice Block
Cancels your current cast and immediately puts you in Ice Block. Pressing Ice Block again will cancel the effect. Not recommended if you spam your buttons.
- /cancelaura Ice Block
If you are a button spammer you can put this on a separate keybind as your Ice Block, allowing you to cancel your Ice Block early if you so desire.
Alter Time Cancel
- /cancelaura Alter Time
You can use the above macro to cancel Alter Time if you do not want to be teleported back to the location / health where you were when you initially cast Alter Time.
- /cast [stance:0,nomod]Blink;[stance:1,nomod]Flicker;[stance:0,mod]Soulshape;[stance:1,mod]Blink
This macro will cast Blink normally, and Soulshape if you use a modifier. While Soulshaped, it defaults to Flicker with modifier key casting Blink. It is set up this way due to Soulshape breaking on casting any other ability than Flicker.
