    Fire 4pc is very, very weak. Blizzard doesn't seem to understand that we bank HU + HS and our reliance on Inferno Blast is lessening. At 546 ilvl I hardly even need it at all.

    It needs a complete rework. Let's not let it go live like this.

    Yea what I'm seeing here is that arcane got some of the best so far next is frost since it will give them more sustained dps. the T16 4p is great For arcane and Seems helpful for fire in some times and for Forst it will depend on how much the Boulder hits for

    Yep, the fire set bonus gets worse as gear gets better, if they don't adjust CM then it's absolute crap.

    If the fire 4p stays to live, I probably won't use all 4 tier pieces unless they just happen to be optimized perfectly in the first place. The two piece doesn't really strike me as very interesting either, given fire's interaction with haste. Frost 2 and 4 pieces bonuses seem pretty interesting, depending on the damage coefficient on the boulder.

    Clearly it's just a release build, but we seem to have way less changes than other classes on the first batch.

    Tweeting GC now about it. Let's get it changed.

    Yea, now that I think about it, fires 4pc seems pretty weak. Maybe they just want a mediocre set bonus for fire instead of having to nerf CM again but meh, this seems like the wrong way to go about it.

    On a side note, it looks like frost will just continue to be even more reliant on haste instead of less because both set bonuses deal with Brain Freeze procs which scale with haste. Oh joy, this will be one clunky mess.

    Yeaaaaa I'd bet that that's just a fail in data mining, though that would be pretty awesome.

    I only needed to use Inferno Blast 8 times in a 3 minute Jinrohk tonight (#3 Mage rank, 546 ilvl helps). The bonus wouldn't have done anything at all for me. It needs complete rework. Just tweeted GC about it.

    Does "No CD Inferno Blast for 6 seconds" mean you can just cast three of them and have HS + HU ready to go?

    You could, but Inferno hits for like a wet noodle and has poor scaling. It might be good very low ilvls, and maybe that's what they're going for. Blizz has been using set bonuses to fix class problems (like T15 4pc was meant to prop up our crit to offset the CM nerf)

  16. #16
    If you guys are sad about that 4pc you're really going to to be sad when they nerf fire again to keep it in check...........

    I'd assume so, but for a 4P, that's REALLY weak.

    "Consuming Brain Freeze has a 75% chance to drop an icy boulder on your target." Makes me wanna go back to frost even more

    Probably the most usless 4P that has been made for fire so far. I will feel ashamed of playing a mage if that thing goes live....

    Don't worry! It's coupled with another CM nerf, so Fire will be unviable anyways!
