Fire feels so clunky right now without Phoenix Flame and Flame on... and the damage isn't good. I switched to frost and I don't regret it
I just miss my floating orbs of fire following me around :(
Maybe an unpopular opinion but I like Fire at the moment. Been playing Frost for so long that switching specs is a breath of fresh air. Having no baseline Phoenix Flame blows though.
Everyone forgets that Blast Wave has a knock back now :(
I really would like the floating fire orbs back.
It's basically a clunkier, slower, less mobile, less fun version of Legion fire...And yea they should at least tie the flame orbs to the Phoenix flames talent...
I also miss my fire orbs very much. I would like an option to have them return please. Sooner the better.
Really sad with the state of Fire Mage. Been sending feedback since the first builds of alpha, none of it got addressed. From how it is now, it's just a strictly worse version of Legion's design. No new to BfA talents, just losing four, and replacing them with effects that could be used in tandem in Legion. Combine that with the loss of fire orbs, just feels like they threw some legendaries into the tree and called it good.

FIRE MAGE FOR LIFE! 🔥___🔥With my playstyle, the changes barely affect me, though I'll miss having both Flame Patch AND Phoenix Flames.Also my SWEET FIRE ORBS! Why you gotta take those away Blizz? D: You give me the sad.
I didn't enjoy fire mage on beta after playing and enjoying all along legion. I may just get bored at it, but I think some improvement could be made and I regret it didn't. I wish we get some control on ignite which a nice passive but could much better as an active ability. I guess people with not baseline might enjoy it but for me it feel just like legion ...in worse.
New extension => less fun, and slower spec / clunkier rotation ! Nice ! I so want to be lvl 116 to lose Flame on or Phoenix Flames to gain useless azerite traits.
Is there a petition to get fire orbs back? I mean they could add them in for all specs as a toy that persists through death with a 1 hour cool down and 1 hour duration.
I want so much to be a fire mage in bfa, but fire mage in pvp is ridiculous! Invisibility is not instantaneous and it disappears just the enemy get close to you.Blazing barrier does not defend the mage. It looks like an egg shell and it has a huge cd.About pyroclasm: Who can stand still casting pyroclasm? 3.7 seconds to launch, really? Who can cast this? You always get stunned, fire blocked or silenced. Pyroclasm should be the fire mage's best ability to deal damage, but the way it was designed is impossible to use! If you polymorph the enemy to be able to cast it, the opponent recovers more life than you cause damage by hitting him at the end of the casting.First: pyroclasm should be instant cast to work fine.Second: 225% is very low, it should be 450%. A fire mage should assassinate his opponent once that this class does not have slow as arcane or frost have.You should remember that Piroclasm only has a 15% chance of happening. This when it consumes Hot Streak. Remember that scorch does not benefit from Enhanced Pyrotechnics as a fireball does, and you can not stand still with a rogue, a warrior or any other class running after you to kill you!In addition, they put the talent to be chosen between Pyroclasm or Meteor! Not enough, the Meteor is also weak because the damage is equally divided by the enemies of the area. The damage must not be split for the skill to work.Finally, the flame strike`s slow was nerfed. In short: it's not fun, it is irritating to be a fire mage. I do not understand why so much nerf in this class! It seems that when choosing fire mage to play only serves to take damage, to die and to not do dps in pvp, especially in x1.
Mage received no real changes specifically to its core gameplay~Fixed~
I used to argue "Fire mage is slow, but at least I feel like a beast in power!"Now I'm just slow, boring, and with no payoff.What's even the point? I don't want to go back to frost, but there's no use sticking with this spec. We're not even getting anything new in BFA.
Fire damage is trash tier now :/
Want to appreciate Fire some more? Play arcane >_>
So for you loyal fire mages, using the two legendary combo of the Soul of the Archmage and Shard of the Exodar has been really fun. It gives you the raid lust buff combined with 6 guaranteed crit strikes to fuel your pryoblasts, if your using your rotations right your almost never without a crit. Granted it's not as fun as before, but I tried frost and it feels bad and arcane is now a joke with all the broken changes. I know once we 115 we'll lose the edge because the legendaries will stop working but for now this feels the best.
and where are those contributors' thoughts? mixed all together or?
