    Default Wildfire a loss to Dps

    Wildfire: Fireball has a 30% chance to reset the CD of Flamebolt and reduce the CD to 0 for the next 3 casts.

    I saw on the internet that it's a loss, so I decided to check it out. When I had 3 points in Wildfire I consistently parsed 5-10% lower than without it. I understand the reasons behind it as far as mechanics go, but not the logic behind it. It requires 20 points in Pyro before you can get to it, so one would think it's one of our better skills, or at least useful in some build.

    Can anyone think of a situation where this ability might be useful?

    Would be useful on Zilas, and that's about it. Not enough movement beyond 2-3 cd's anywhere else.

    I would assume it's for movement.

    That said, anyone who is a pyromancer in a fight with movement should probably step away from their computer.

    Even in pvp it is decidedly mediocre. Medium damage, and you are relying on the rng if you ever want to move. Not to mention that you are going to lose your GoP bonus if you decide to chase them if it happens to proc at the right time.

    I play pyro dom in pvp now and use GOP not for dmg bonus. I'll cast it anywhere and then as I'm entering battle in a warfront, or in world pvp, I'll just cast burning shield as a free shield while I fight.

    If they made the following changes it would be awesome:

    last 10s
    Increase cool down to 10.5s
    Stacks up to three times (8, 16, 25%)

    Would make pyro more emmersive and bursty/up dps.

    Honestly theres not many people I cant kill one on one... Usually the only time I die involves a bunch of immunities and even then you can still usually get away and come back. If they buffed pyro at all it would make it OP in pvp tbh. Only real complaint i have in PVP is all the immunities people pop not a lack of power from pyro...
