    "Cancelling to use a !pyro" to get a bigger Ignite

    I have a habit lately out of experience to cancel a fireball that started casting if a !pyro was indicated on the screen momentarily before the fireball started casting, in order to get a bigger ignite for a combustion, if an ignite was already on the target. However, since it's so empirical and came out of common experience and I've never read it as a proper method by theorycrafters, I wonder if I miss something. Let me know what you think. By the way, I cancel the fireball often by moving half a yard front, clumsy I know:P

    No idea about the best thing to do.

    But in your case, a

    /stopcasting
    /cast Pyroblast

    would be useful.

    Personally I would let the Fireball finish and throw the Pyro after it, hoping both crit for a massive combustion,
    on another note I do use a
    #showtooltip
    /stopcasting
    /cast Combustion
    just incase a good line up of crits hit

    I have a feeling this macro is missing something...

    /cast pyroblast!

    Should be used just incase. @ post above me, /cast before combustion is helpful.

    Dont break your fireball cast tbh, lost time in casting is lost dps...

    Be carefull though with Fireball > Pyro! if you do that instant and they both crit you get the famous ignite munching.

    For a good combustion you are not dependant on Pyro! you want 2 (or more) crits in a row, the Pyro Dot only adds like 1k to the combustion which should be 15k+ preferably.
    The DOT is nice, but a good Ignite is much more problematic.

    That's not guaranteed though. I've seen big ignites without waiting to use pyro.
