Hey! Blazing here with more tips on mage play. Here im going to tell you how to do 6 chained pyroblasts with Deep freeze / CS lock out.

PLEASE NOTE: Once the macro is over you will have a Presence of Mind / Pyroblast proc so you have to manually double Pyroblast the last two / three with a inferno blast after 5th for another. Also note that if you take combustion out of macro you can spam another Pyroblast if your good.

Steep 1. Make sure your speced into Deep Freeze // Presence of mind
Steep 2. Do a double Inferno blast for Pyro proc (living bomb in between)
Steep 3. Frost nova // Dragon breath Ring of frost and deep freeze
Steep 4 Spam macro

Macro:
#showtooltip alter time
/cancelaura ice block
/use Malevolent Gladiator's Badge of Dominance
/cast presence of mind
/castsequence reset=15 alter time, pyroblast, pyroblast, combustion, pyroblast, alter time, pyroblast

Then manually 2-3 Pyros
This can be used once every 1.5 minutes and is a blast doing it!

Cool macro.

Have absolutely no respect for anyone who win trades though, you ruin competition and steal titles from people trying to earn in.

Talk about flying off the handle with assumptions and good ol' fashion "hate".

This can be found here as well as an additional macro. Droon is on the EU but I would encourage any fire mage to check out his videos. They are very good and informative. I would suggest anyone out there interested in playing fire to watch his videos.

When setting up for a Pyro via double Inferno Blast, I'm assuming that the 8-seconds in between is used to Poly, spell-steal and counter-spell?

And while the pyro-chain is on CD, do you ever revert to casting Scorch?

As Heating Up has a 10sec duration, and Inferno Blast on an 8-sec CD, thus giving a 2-second window of opportunity .. how often do you run into situations where you're CC'd before a second Inferno Blast can be cast to proc Pyro?

It makes the 10-second refresh time of Arcane Charges seem like an eternity in comparison lol

I suppose this is where the real skill of the Fire Mage comes into play, yeh?

Dactylion,

This is indeed the skill of a fire mage. You can spam scorch I guess, but there is no need to from my experience. If you get interrupted then, its pretty much a situation where you will lose your heating up. So it's best to wait inferno blasts. Also, who CCs the mage? Lol. Everybody trains us anyway.

Ironically this makes Fire more of a support 'n burst spec then Arcane .. and yet Arc can deal higher sustained damage due to Mastery affecting the Bomb damage, and Arc Missiles at 4-stacks can be cast for more damage outside of a deep then anything in Fire's arsenal lol

Honestly, what holds Arcane back isn't dmg or mobility.

It has fewer CC choices than Fire or Frost.

Frost can FoF DF, CS, Poly at will -- and has access to RoF.
Fire has CS, Poly, Combustion, and Dragon's Breath -- plus access to RoF/Frostjaw.
Arcane just has CS and Poly. -- and is fairly married to Frostjaw.

The problem for Arcane becomes PoM Poly is a better CC than PoM Frostjaw/DF (and this is also using 2 CCs).

What do you mean by 'access to RoF'? All specs have access to all three Talents, so I'm not really sure where you're coming from here.

Fire and Frost might have more control via their CCs, but the trade off is their nuke damage.

PoM+Poly vs Frostjaw is situational. If a player is on 150k health and I can one-shot em with a 4-stack Barrage into a shatter, then Frostjaw would be a much better option then poly ;)

if a player is 150k health i can 1 shot them with a 0 stack lava burst without a shatter set up.

or a boomkin can just starsurge

an enh can stormblast or elemental blast

i'd be willing to bet a ret could hit that high with the right procs up.

Grief.

You know.. I could lurk on the Warrior forums and say the same thing about Mage bursts while they discuss the particulars of Execute and the differences between Fury and Arms.

Though I wouldn't because it comes across as pointless spam .. perhaps even trolling .. and I have enough sense to not annoy others.

my point is that 150k arcane barrage is alot of set up for as much reward as other classes have with no set up .

And my point is that everything you said has no relevance to the subject at hand.

If you re-read the earlier posts, it's clear that we're discussing PoM+Poly vs PoM+Frostjaw .. not bursts .. or even bursts of mages vs other classes.
