Okay, here we go:
Lets math it out, if you don´t believe my numbers - check tooltips
Frost Bomb: 3.746 dmg at explosion, 1.5s cast time and 10s cooldown
3.746 : 11.5s = 325,74 DPS
Living Bomb: 1584 dmg over 12s, 1590 @ explosion, 12s duration + 1s GCD
(1584 + 1590) : 13s = 244,15 DPS
Nether Tempest: 3180 dmg over 12s, 1,5 gcd
3180 : 13,5s = 235,55 DPS
P.S. Never ever heard or read the 2.6s left LB story. All I know is, @ 12,5%, LB gains another tick within 13.33 seconds.
No that bit about Living Bomb is true, I've been using it myself.
Without haste, refreshing living bomb at 3 seconds remaining means it will explode anyway 3 seconds later and also continue ticking, allowing a 100% uptime.
This obviously scales with haste so the window is smaller the faster the bomb ticks, until a tick is added.

ok my guild is currently struggeling on this boss, and im trying to find out what our players can do to up their dps. our mage is currently doing 89k dps which is quit low
link to hes log: (our best try)
as far as i can see he s uptime on ignite living bomb etc is rly low compared to the top fire mages. i have no idea how to play mage so some help for me so i can either redirect him to here or explain it to him would realy realy apriciate it
ONe of the draw backs of nether tempest is exactly that you can hardly ever refresh it at the exact right point (in the last tick) so NT is going to lose some dps in comparison to LB due to that fact.
If you are factoring imperfection into Frost bomb, you gotta do the same to LB.
Lets say you cast a complete Fireball before casting Frostbomb, in my case that would make a frost bomb every 11.3, lets make that an even 12 seconds.
Frost bomb hits for 54595 (self buffed) or 57595/12 = 3428 dps
Living bomb does 48775 over 11.17 seconds, factor in a 95% perfection for 48775/11.17*95% = 2963 dps
or if we cast Frost bomb for the same dps 57595 / 2963 = 19.4 seconds
Only drawback of this is that Frostbomb actually has a cast time vs the instant of LB.
Do the Bomb which u like, it doesn't make that big difference.
89k for a mage is really bad, i did 166k (while sheeping an add) the first week and there is still potential for more.
Go for fire, do high combustions and spread them well.
Edit: Unfortunately some of our Logs are hidden.
So i did a screen: http://s14.directupload.net/file/d/3...rle8me_jpg.htm
@ 12.5% haste, Frost Bombs cooldown is @ 8,88s and its cast time @ 1,33s We have a overall duration of 10,21s. with 2s fireball we´re @ 12.,21s (that´s just the time we´re you gonna refresh LB).
3 targets with full time lb/pb/ignite vs 40% ice lance cleave, yea seems like a though choice
