Re: Fire Trinket Discussion Megathread

How much ilvl of a difference do trinkets start to fall behind one another? For example A trinket sims highest, but B trinket has more ilvl.

Because of this whole titanforge thing making the gaps even bigger than ever before :/

Re: [7.0] Rinoa's Guide to Legion Fire

I'm trying to look through the thread as much as I can but I just got back to mage like yesterday so, someone give it to me in brief, what's the rules about casting cinderstorm? I'm seeing some good parses coming out with people casting it 50-75% less than the max casts they could have gotten, but ...

Re: [7.0] Fire Talents, Trinkets, Racials, Stats, Legendary

So i got 3 traits left to get before aftershocks and the only dps traits left are blast furnace, reignition overdrive and blue flame special. I have read that the extra flamestrike from the golden trait is only 25% of normal damage. With that in mind would it make sense to get the blue flame special...

Re: [7.0] Rinoa's Guide to Legion Fire

There are times during RoP where you end up with a instant pyro, but you're still casting fireball + pyro rotation (especially when you just finished a fireball + pyro and it double crit; giving you another instant pyro) Don't do this during RoP; as soon as pyro is instant, use it. That depends on ...

Re: [7.0] Rinoa's Guide to Legion Fire

I would like to get some more discussion about AoE situations in dungeons. A typical pull in dungeons involves like 15-20 mobs and you usually have very little time before the majority is dead (20 seconds orso). Say your tank just pulled 20 mobs and is tanking them and you just arrived. What do you...

Re: [7.0] Rinoa's Guide to Legion Fire

Looks to me like you don't want to chain a PF after a non-instant spell.

EDIT: Also, I think HS is only affected by direct-damage spells, and not dots.
Does that mean it's ok to use during combustion? Since you are using instant casts, but then it always crits anyway.

Re: [7.0] Rinoa's Pre-Patch Fire Guide

Sometimes I find that sandman won't proc till +5 seconds into the pull, in this case do I hold off on combustion and other CDs like flame on / RoP until sandman procs? Assuming that the ring is popped on pull.

Is it still a dps increase or not to cast flamestrike with hot streak on multiple enemies?

Re: [7.0] Rinoa's Pre-Patch Fire Guide

Which is especially surprising considering doom is thought as more potent on AOE.

Wasn't doom only op for arcane mages because it scaled off literally everything the spec had? Not just cooldowns but also things like the mastery.

Does fire currently have any use of fireball while combustion is up? What about at lvl 110?

Re: [7.0] Rinoa's Pre-Patch Fire Guide

-For trash, or bosses you dont pop everything at the start, consider Tome/Prophecy of Fear/Cinderstorm over Tome/Sandman's/Meteor
What bosses though? And by no popping everything at the start do you mean for a few seconds or more?

Re: [7.0] Rinoa's Pre-Patch Fire Guide

1. Pyroblast precast--> Cinderstorm (to procc trinkets) 2. Bloodlust and cast Fireball (if your raid uses ring slightly delayed) or Scorch (if they use it instantly) till you have a Pyro 3. Rune+Cd´s -> Pyroblast, Fire Blast, Pyroblast, Fire Blast, Pyroblast, Flame On, Fire Blast, Pyroblast, Fire B...

Early opener

Is the idea of the early opener (crystal > ap > ab) to proc doom on the crystal and boss? Arcane blast hits crystal before entering combat for an almost 100% of proc and then entering resetting the rppm to proc on boss as well?

Are these zakuun boots going to sim well assuming that the mage is already between 2000-2200 haste and has a good amount of mastery already? Like 740+ ilvl?

Re: Alternative to arcane bis boots?

Bloody Dagger-Heeled Pumps from Zakuun are roughly equal to Dessicated Soulrender Slippers - your gear and the fight length decides which is better. They are a very solid choice, and also have the upside of being great for Fire as well. I've talked to other mages in my guild and server, not one of ...

Alternative to arcane bis boots?

I can't seem to get a good deal on mythic soul render slippers on my server. It's always overpriced.

At the moment I have the crafted upgraded slippers haste/mastery. Is there something better I can use till I get those mythic soul renders Boe?
