Fireball or Frostfire .... PVE talent
Return to board index
was just wondering which talent will be doin more Dmg ... since the fireball alrdy got more basic dmg than the frostfire bolt .
hes the 2 lists of the 2 talents :
fireball talent :
. and still with using the ( mloten armor glyph + imp scortch ) + using the 5% increased chance to get a critical strike while using fireball .
forstfire talent :
every body knows this talent even if uve never been a mage . but instead of using the fire ball glyph <<< u will use the frost fire glyph ( increased critical strike chance and dmg of FFB by 2% ) .
i hope u guys list ur Opinions ... since i think the FFB talent always OWNS :)
FFB because of
but Fireball will have a bit higher non-crit dmg i think
im 0/53/18 and then FFB crits more then pyroblast, simply because of
but pyroblast have higher non-crit damage
is the core of any Fire build. These are the DPS talents you must always pick up. The only variables are Improved Fireball -> Incineration + Imp. Fire Blast (which depends on whether you are Fireball or FFB) and Flame Throwing or Burning Soul (which is mostly up to personal taste).
Anything else within Fire is not a single-target DPS talent.
Fireball specs don't usually go into Frost because Arcane provides both better regen and better damage. If you go Frost you might as well be using FFB.
is the highest DPS mage build a the moment, above Frostfire and Arcane. It is a Fireball-based spec. No points at all can be removed from it, as both Living Bomb and TTW are
for its viability.
As stated, the real difference between a fireball spec and a frostfire spec is really in whether you'd rather be fire/arcane or fire/frost.
Fire/arcane - Has better potential damage (though the difference is within reason), can pick up arcane niceties like focus magic and magic absorbtion, increased range on situational casts (polymorph and spellsteal, these might become more useful after the next content patch).
Fire/frost (frostfire) - Has fewer immunity issues, slightly better burst (icy veins, higher damage crits), free hit, better aoe ability. Should never have mana issues when not aoe'ing.
The two build's rotations are all but the same thing. Fire/arcane is much more mana hungry, but has 50% mana regen while casting without using mage armour (100% with.) Frostfire has the bigger crits, fire/arcane has the better dps, frostfire scales with crit better than fire/arcane, while fire/arcane will scale better with spell power (though sp is still king no matter spec)
It's really a matter of personal preference, the differences are small and either way, you bring high-end dps with that big ol' 10% crit debuff, so play it whichever way you want.
