? 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
