? Use Potion
? Use Potion: During Combustion
? Use Racial Active Buff: During Combustion
? Use Trinkets: During Combustion
? Anytime except during Combustion
? Whenever it is ready. Only delay if you can AoE 3+ targets before Combustion would be ready again.
? When Hot Streak is up
? During Combustion
? During Combustion if you run out of Fire Blast charges and can finish casting before Combustion drops off
? Use Pyroclasm procs when they are available. During Combustion, don't use a Pyroclasm Pyroblast if you think Combustion will fade before you finish casting
? When you gain Heating Up. Try to pool Fire Blast charges for Combustion when possible.
? If Combustion is down
? Not during Combustion or Rune of Power
? Scorch replaces Fireball as your filler on targets below 30% health with the Searing Touch talent.
? If you are moving and can't take another action, use Scorch

Frequently Asked Questions

🧐 How is this Guide useful?

The goal of our guides is to show you the overall "optimal" options for building your character. If you do not wish to dig through walls of text then you may like our visual "cut to the chase" approach.

📚 Where do you get this data from?

We use algorithms to parse big data chunks from Top 1% Raiders using various public World of Warcraft sources such as the official Blizzard API and WarcraftLogs. We believe that statistics is a very reliable method for determining solid choices for end-game optimization.

😸 Why do you show different recommendations for each boss?

There is usually a slight divergence in optimal choices for each given boss, so we decided to cover that in our guides. However, we also provide you with the 'All Stars' option which is the summary of most popular choices for all bosses together, in case you want the 'set it and forget it' approach (even though in some cases you might end up sacrificing a bit of your performance).
