Wow, they nerfed the spec in the worst way I can possibly imagine. Fixes absolutely nothing. I'm just wondering if they really think about the changes or just throw out random ideas and see how it works?

All they want to do is make sure that less combustions are done with AT, they're trying to stop Combustion from being a huge burden on DPS if you didn't get it right.
It's understandable. And i'll bet you any sort of money that when there's a new expansion, Cumbustion will be redesigned.
Horridon: Blazing speed let's you go between doors much faster. Can also help with the dino.
Council: This is a fight I see PoM being better.
Tortos: Blazing Speed can help on avoiding turtles, I see both talents being very close to each other.
Megaera: Blazing Speed helps with avoiding the acid aoe. Also helps going to positions for rampage earlier. PoM close to it, maybe a bit better if lucky with debuffs.
Ji-kun: Blazing Speed is a clear winner here imo.
Primordius: I can ninja buffs har har!
Dark Animus: Blazing speed helps when you get matter swapped in any part of the encounter. Can see both talents being close but I'd go with Blazing Speed just because of the convenience.
Iron Qon: Blazing Speed clear winner, can run through tornadoes before even the people using portals (his also frees portal stacks for failures to use them).
Twin Consorts: Easy movement behind the Ice Comet. I can see PoM being used too though.
Lei Shen: Blazing Speed clear winner, Helm of Command, platforms and phase 3 winds + Thunderstruck.
Ra-den: PoM clear winner if you are not in line to soak ever.
I'm talking about heroic on these encounters. As you can see, Blazing Speed's utility is unparalleled. It helped to save me from a lot of sticky situations and since then I haven't let it go except for Ra-den.
OT: This glyph change is horrible anyway. I too, can see fire becoming unplayable.
ahah lol, damn you Blizzard !
This is gay, 1.5 mid CD does not fit to anything
You would have to be clinically insane to not take PoM as a Fire Mage in ToT on live.

But its okay, Vykina isn't really a good fire mage though. He is probably noob for not using BS. Not like he is in a world first guild or anything. No biggie. You are probably right.......
EDIT: After re-reading his post, I am 99% sure its a troll. It has to be. Like it HAS to be......
Hey just a thought, if you change Combustion to a 40 Second CD it fixes synergy problems with AT but removes the synergy with PoM still. I would still prefer not to touch the timers on the CD's but if you change this glyph, I would think it would make sense to have a 60 second CD rather than a 67.5 cd. That Amp trinket looks great, wasn't really paying attention to PTR till mage changes came along. This is being done to nerf burst then obviously without nerfing undergeared fire mages too much. Last time with the CM nerfs, it made lower geared fire suffer, so I understand not wanting to go that route. Personally, I would rather have nerfs to % of ignite applied when used rather than to nerf combustion's synergy. I really thought Fire had great CD synergy in 5.2, and these changes do feel like making something function clunkier to nerf burst potential when really just nerfing the internal %'s could do a much better balancing job. Or am I completely wrong here on both Changing the CD to 40 seconds, or nerfing the internal ignite %'s?

I did better as Fire even with the changes but 2 fights i have found where you can stand still arcane did really well and did much more than our frost mage who is going to fire today.
This combustion change is horrible for fire.
The combustion change is a step into the right direction! I still expect more fire nerfs possibly, but that nerf is definitely a good one to start with.
I'm arcane right now, I hope arcane does more than fire next patch since I'll be fully prepared.
What are your thoughts on the 5.4 arcane vs fire. I wouldn't mind if it was similar to this tier where arcane does better until fire gets heroic bis, then it edges out and beats it.

Well, at last the trinket is nerfed 50% for combustion, we knew it would come something like this. Now we have to wait, see and test the crap out of it on PTR!
