[Mage] Has anyone figured this stuff out yet?Follow

#1 Oct 18 2012 at 6:39 PM Rating: Good
So as you all know, I've got toons up the wahoo. I've been playing my mage a bit on the side lately and am so confused on fire rotation and dps. I haven't found a good site yet on whether or not anyone has done some theorycrafting (if there is, please post).

Let me just put it out there, I haven't played fire since the good ol' Kara days. I LOVED it then. Sometime over the course of the next expansion or so, I decided to give Arcane a go since at the time, it was the top dps out of the three specs. I've always felt that Arcane was meh. Not so much dps wise, but I just didn't really enjoy it. Well now with the talent changes and whatnot, I figured I'd give fire a go again and have failed miserably. I'm certain it's my rotation as I have no clue how things work yet and if I should be using certain spells. Just recently tried Temple of the Jade Serpent. Started off fire, pulled a measly 9k dps on the first boss and immediately switched back to arcane for the rest of the dungeon.

(Just to give an idea, I throw a fireball, scorch, that one blast spell thingy... I can't remember the name lol, and if I get lucky with the proc, pyro... not necessarily in this order. I sort of just push whatever is free because I'm lame. Oh and if Living Bomb is available, I toss that in somewhere too).

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm going to continue to try to find a site that gives a good idea on rotation and whatnot, but I figured I'd ask all of your lovely faces for help. Thank you so much!

I've found the Icy-Veins guides useful - Fire Mage Guide

At least until someone gets around to putting an EJ thread up.

Why do you put toons in a fish?

Also EJ has been very... weak sauce for some specs lately. Well since mid Cata tbh. The base spec threads is what I am referring to.

I was not aware of this, but do tell. Smiley: sly

Thanks so much Rare! I'll go check that out.

I agree with both you and Horse that EJ has been lame as of late with their guides for each class. I liked the way everything was set up. Perhaps it's still too early in the expac for them to make anything but I have been disappointed lately.

Horse - I do that so I know where everything is! Duh! Thought everyone did.

I'm still only really playing my druid at the moment and all 3 specs on EJ are pretty well represented in the spec threads. For even better feral info, fluid druid is the place to be right now.

Well thanks to your link to icy-veins, I'm slowly getting the rotation down on fire and doing a good 10k or so dps MORE than before. Yay for knowing rotations! =)
