But the "go to" macros for pyro that I find don't have Heat Wave in them or mention it in the rotation. Is there a reason for this?

    Sorry, still in the learning process so apologies if this is a noob question.
    Basically, I do not think that it is a big disadvantage to use heat wave in the spam macro, because the improvements for Fireball (additional 75 % of its damage over 5 seconds) and Cinder Burst (deals additional 30 % to targets affected bye the damage over time effect from Fireball) only affect when Fusillade and Heat Wave is on CD and does not run.

    But during Heat Wave, your Fireballs do 30% more damage with Pyromancer's Fury and benefit from the shortened casting time. The goal is to use as many Fireballs and Cinder Burst Proc's as possible during the Heat Wave without your damage buffs running out, this is only possible if you do not have it in the spam macro.

    Newbie Necromancer here. Do you mind creating a build please?
