    You should try playing with good people then.

    Because meta is pretty damn broken for a few classes.
    Far and few between, unless you're getting perfect combustions, and 70%+ Pyro crit.. you'll be lucky to break top 10 on most fights.
    ..and the fact that just about everyone ranks in WoL

    The meta has a decent uptime, it has been buffed from the low point and currently is a nice DPS increase. It's easily noticeable in terms of increased damage output. Pro Tip: A single gem that increases DPS by like 6-8% is amazing.

    Boomie here...

    With regards to Lei-Shen's 100% crit trinket (as you called it) it was actually nerfed real good for boomies, it has a pretty low uptime so I heard. The meta gem though, sooo yummy seeing almost 50% uptime on some fights... QQ mages ;-P

    how much of a dps increase is this gem ( from normal meta ) for fire?

    Not entirely sure how much, but it is a dps increase, barely. You will probably only notice the increase if you get off a perfect combustion whilst the proc is up, and the spec is so random as it is that you will not notice a reliable overall damage gain at all unless you play perfectly/get perfect rng every single fight.

    Just know that it is an upgrade to the regular meta, however small it may be.

    My first raid night with this gem and straight from the logs of just the kills this is my uptime

    H Jin'Rok [Tempus Repit 6 61.0 17.3 %] TTK; 5:50
    N Horridon [Tempus Repit 10 97.4 17.7 %] TTK; 9:08
    N Council [Tempus Repit 5 51.0 11.7 %] TTK; 7:14
    N Tortos [Tempus Repit 7 70.7 21.4 %] TTK; 5:29
    N Megaera [Tempus Repit 9 86.9 24.0 %] TTK; 6:01

    --Buff---------Amount---Uptime-----

    It s a big gap between minimum and maximum value...some more consistency around 20% would be nice imo

    For me it nearly looks the same as for Jimm3 at least for yesterday. Sometimes 25% sometims 15%. I somehow don't like the randomness of it sometimes it procs two times in a row and then you don't see any procs for 2 minutes. Sucks completely. Fire is already RNG as hell. Don't need any more.

    Stop whining about the gem tbh, it's very good and noone should even consider switching back, most of the time you can get it to line up with your opening combustion since it has increased proc chance on pull. And to be honest 10 second bloodlust when just fireballing/NT is not bad either.

    And yes sure other classes have better uptime etc but imagine what fire would do with 50 % uptime, oh god the horrors we would just get nerfed in some other boring way like CM scaling or what not.

    Does anyone have any problems adding this spell into their NeedToKnow? for some reason when I make the bar, it doesn't show up for me.

    If I remember correctly if you tick "Only own" or whatever it's called it won't show up due to the way blizzard coded it, it's not considered your own buff or w/e so just make sure that one isn't ticked. If that's not the problem I don't know tbh.

    That solved it, thanks so much
