    And lose out on 10% SP from Harb (plus Lightning Blade). I don't really see that as a viable option when you could simply leave Fulminate and Withering Flames out of your rotation and get more IC time which works out to higher dps when you include the Harb bonuses.

    So I have a question....

    So while extinguish/hw are on CD, is there anything else to be using as "filler" besides wildfire/cb procs and fireball? Is withering and fulminate rly a loss, even with IC toggled? Off with flame volley on CD as well

    Bc I notice the burst is high, but the drop off can be severe on the dummies at least

    Edit: I am aware fulminate eats max

    withering flames is a dps loss, compare the damage it does over its 5 second channel with anything else you could have used in that time and you will see its damage is simply not high enough. add to that it costs you a pryomancers aegis proc (assuming you channel for its full duration)


    Fulminate is less clear, Instead of thinking of its cost in charge think of it as -20% damage for x seconds, the value of x depends on what else you use, if you get a cb proc and so on. So to be worth the gcd fulminate has to do more damage than other spells you could have used that gcd on + the dps it cost you to save the charge to use it

    if it crits it was worth it and if it doesn't crit it is closer to dps neutral or even a loss, however it is instant so it can be used to fill a gap before fireball where you need something for those aegis procs

    So I guess my question would be, between cd's, how do I pass the time lol

    I get that it's more or a priority rather than rotation, but does it mean fireball with procs weaved in? Just felt like there's a big gap that shouldn't be there.

    Thx again though. Didn't rly weigh the fact of building the charge vs. IC

    Why not take out of archon? I haven't tried pyro much so it's a question of curiosity.

    As a note I specced 10arch/5harb and went 5 into exhilaration so I'm not making raid wait for PS stax.


    Wish they'd implement "bugged" mobs like that first boss of PF back in the day. Free PS stax!

    Default Hmmm

    It was finally pretty good but now, less than a week later, they've already taken away the new Flame Rupture ability

    Bugged skill is bugged. It'll be back once it's not stupidly broken.
