    Developers' note: The Minor Power on Memory of Lucid Dreams has a custom implementation for Fire Mages and how it interacts with Fire Blast charges. However, this wound up being too strong relative to other Essences' Minor Powers. As such we're reducing its proc rate by 33% for Fire Mages, which should keep this as a very strong option to use in the Minor Slot, but much closer to the potency of other Minor Powers.

    Fire has evolved, along with shitty azerite traits and essences that don't really help it to keep it p. garbage in 8.2
    Time to retire your account. Fire is doing great.

    People are starting to get their rank 3 raid essences and gain loads of DPS from them, while fire gains nothing over Lucid rank 3. Also Fire isn't doing great it's doing decently and is in the middle of the pact on fights that last longer as they do on Mythic difficulty.

    Granted it's better than garbage with the right setup.

    Which doesn't change the situation. Fire has reached its peak performance from essences and it needs a very specific gear setup to work.

    Other specs are still gaining power and will continue to as people start getting rank 3 in their essences.

    Frost sims already show on par or higher and that is not with rank 3. It is a matter of time. Fire has not been buffed, it only got its BIS essence before anyone else.

    Yup, said gear setup has to be assumed when talking about BFA raiding. You play the spec+azerite loadout rather than just the spec. I don't like it either, but you'll have to put in the extra legwork to obtain it. Players are obtaining said setup. Arguably more cumbersome than relics, IMHO, especially for playing more than one spec.

    Yeah, I don't disagree, but at least Fire got to be useful during progression when it mattered the most for some guilds. Don't care too much about farm. Depends on the guild and how long they'll be progressing though. Point of reference is important. Being strong early on because of the Essence might keep Fire from getting buffed, but at the same time they have't been doing spec balancing much this xpac anyway. So yeah, I don't disagree that the problem remains.
