7. Rotation

Rotation for fire mage is easy, but rotation keeps you in one place if you need to run - cast Fire blast for saving your DPS.

Tip: Before the battle, use Molten Armor and buff for int.


Living Bomb 

spam Fireball

Pyroblast after Hot Streak procs

Cast Scorch every 30 seconds.

Cast Living Bomb every 12 seconds after it explodes.

Cast Pyroblast every time Hot Streak procs.

8. DPS Stat Priority

Spell power - more - better.

Crit strike - 45% for higher DPS. Molten Armor converts your spirit into Critical Strike Rating also.

Haste - 1000-1100 is good. 1130 is the cap.
