Fire Mage Rotation: How to Burst

Fire Mages live and die from their pyro procs, which result in instant, free, empowred Pyroblasts. No procs and the damge done falls of a cliff. The “standard way” to do things is to fish for procs with Fireball or Scorch, get the Heating Up proc, boost it with Inferno Blast, and lob it at the target. Perhaps with an Alter Time in the mix to get another proc. Then you fish for the next proc. Here’s how to get several Pyrp procs and do a lot more damage. Note: While this guide is aimed at PvP it’s very applicable for PvE. The burst roations are…

The Patch 5.4 Monk Changes

So what changed for Monks in 5.4? A bunch of little changes and tweaks. A buff or two and a couple of nerfs to things that might have been overpowered anyway. There are no new talents and no talents were eliminated. You gained no new abilities. Brewmasters might have the biggest changes, with a Keg Smash nerf and the changes to Vengeance. Scroll through the notes and check out the video, below, which covers all the changes and how they affect you. General Spinning Crane Kick now functions like a smart heal, healing the 6 most injured friendly targets within…

The Patch 5.4 Druid Changes

So what happened with Druids in patch 5.4? What are the changes, buffs, nerfs, and new abilities? Scroll down, all the notes are posted, with links and some comments. Resto and Balance got the lion’s share of changes, Guardian Druids got nothing spefic to them, and Feral only a bit. But if you’re a Guardian and you tank you will want to pay close attention to the Vengeance changes. I think Resto Druids will be quite happy, Balance a bit less so. At least both of them get Nature’s Swiftness as a one of their abilities. That’s a nice buff all…

Patch 5.4 Rogue changes

The Patch 5.4 Rogue Changes

The Patch 5.4 Rogue changes are mostly pretty good. Eviscerate does less damage, but a number of other buffs more than make up for that. You’re dodgier than before (Evasion buff,) get more from Recuperate, and got a number of positive changes to your talents. Combat even got a new ability. PvP notes: Your (everyone’s) Resilience is now 72%, so geming for the stuff isn’t a good idea. Dodging is now better for all Rogues. The change to Killing Spree makes it a far more effective ability for single targets (PvE included) than before. Combat’s other buffs will help out, too….

The Patch 5.4 Death Knight Changes

The Patch 5.4 Death Knight Changes don’t amount to a whole lot this time ’round. You got some nice buffs, a new talent (Riposte,) Anti-Magic Shell was the only real nerf, and the rest were tweaks. Check the glyphs, there are a couple which you will probably want to use. See below for details. PvP: Resilience is now 72% and there are some other small changes. Go here for more. As for PvP gear, note that getting the two PvP trinkets gives you a nice Resilience bonus. You call if that’s enough to keep you from equipping a PvE trinket,…

The Patch 5.4 Warrior Changes

The Patch 5.4 Warrior Changes are much like those of the other classes. A mixed bag of buffs and other changes. Tanks should take a close look at the 5.4 changes, Arms could spend a glance, and Fury will just mostly yawn. Mostly, Warriors are in a better place with the changes and Bladestorm might even be coming back. Note that these patch remarks are up to date as of 9/4. They will be updated if there are any changes before or after the 5.4 launch. Note that there may be some significant changes still coming. The Patch 5.4 Warrior Changes: Contents…
