DPS Rotation & Cooldowns for Fire Mage in PvE | Latest Patch 7.0.3
The following rotation guide was developed through extensive simulations and play testing with the goal of keeping the guide as simple as possible without sacrificing performance. This guide also included AoE rotations and provides details on when to use special talents and cooldowns.
Single Target Rotation
DPS Priority: Execute the following priority for optimal DPS.
- Pyroblast with Hot Streak.
- Fire Blast with Heating Up proc.
- Fire Blast with 2 charges.
- Fireball as a filler spell.
- Scorch as a filler spell when moving.
Your top priority is to cast Pyroblast when Hot Streak is present. Use Fire Blast with a Heating Up proc to create a Hot Streak proc or whenever you have 2 Fire Blast charges. Use Fireball and Scorch as filler spells.
With 3 or less enemies, it is best to pick one and proceed with the single target rotation. At 4+ enemies, begin using Flamestrike and Dragons Breath on cooldown. Continue to build and consume Hot Streak procs a directed in the single target rotation.
Information on how to incorporate the selected talents from this guide into your rotation is currently being re-worked for 7.0.3. Check back later!
These are effective cooldowns to try and incorporate into most all encounters.
