    Default Suggestion to fix pyro dps (pve)

    well seeing how trion continues to **** on mages over and over and over until were deleted as a calling

    and mage pvp will be dead in 1.4

    i propose a change to pyro to make it good for pve and have competitive dps

    Change Burning Bright to 1.5% per point for pve.

    Change Pyromancer Armor to 20% proc rate, 10% still in pvp

    Change Combust to always apply the dot on a fireball crit

    Change Ground Of Power to a 5 min duration as-well as apply a buff that gives the bonuses for 15 secs after moving

    Change Flaring Intellect and Burning Intellect to stack with all other buffs

    I'd just like Pyro/Ele to have an actual rotation, rather than full-******ing my way to 1700 dps by mashing fireball over and over. I think the damage output is fine, and pretty competitive for short, burn phase fights like Warmaster. The problem is certain spells not scaling well, like Countdown. Fixing burning bright will just make Fireball spam even more prevalent.

    it does have a rotation, flame bolt then fireball till cinderburst proc then back to flame bolt, fireball till nest cinderburst proc

    albeit not the most complicated i don't mind spewing fireballs like a madman.

    someone suggested a interesting idea in a forum i read about possibly making fireball refresh countdown and making it stack up to 3 times and tick for 3 countdown's at the end of countdown making a reason to actually use countdown

    Given that everything is additive, this wouldn't change much.

    Maybe. Kind of a lame fix.

    Would be totally OP.

    This is needed.

    Don't see the point in this. Wouldn't be consistent with the way every other buff works anyway.

    Mage are getting a welcome buff to my favorite soul pair. Can any of you pr0 forum jockeys figure out what that soul pair is? You can figure it out just by knowing the mechanics and seeing the upcoming changes. You won't see it unless you are a min max user of this specific pairing though.

    considering the combust dmg is only 30% it wouldn't be OP

    and additive would still give a lil boost

    You'll have 3 stacks that will never drop. It would be OP.

    i really don't think so and if it was an issue maybe lowering the damage combust does to 20% of the fireball's damage would work however i see this as a way to help pyro do sustained damage

    prove it with a parse of 1800

    that's what i thought.

    you are a rogue

    and probably already know mage dps is behind by quite a bit but don't want competition

    I think many of us already are playing pyro for pve.

    oh i see so your okay with mediocre dps?

    well the more power too ya as many of my mage buddies have already rerolled

    something needs to be changed cause as it stands there's a large population of mages ready to either quit the game since they don't feel like rerolling or reroll

    this goes for both pvp and pve.

    i however enjoy to raid and i do not like hanging my head in shame because mage dps is in shambles right now.

    maybe make a small pyromancer aoe change aswell.

    make backdraft increase crit damage bonus of firestorm by 30% for 12 sec's

    be like a debuff applied to all enemys backdraft hits

    would love to hear other suggestions aswell.
