    SC/Ele probably best.

    I have never seen any Pyro spec out dps SC/Ele in PvE.

    In Warfronts, Pyro just owns everyone's ass pretty much until 1.2.

    While you're probably good, the SC/Ele aren't doing something right if they are losing on aoe fights.

    Lithin your pyro spec has it changed at all from the earlier post in this thread? Do you use it on boss fights or just trash? Whats you aoe cast order to get 3500 parses? What macros are you using if any?
    I've see sc/elem in my guild doing 2500+ on regular basis on trash and sometimes spiking upwards of 3k. I really hate having to use sc/elem for maxing dps and love to find alternative.

    Well lately they have changed how you "cannot" double cast your aoe's without moving, which basically just add a button into your rotation.

    Normally i'm a chloro in my guild, because people playing this game is pretty worthless and if healers are worthless then you wont kill shit.
    Ive used this spec for the first boss in greenscale like a month - month and a half ago and got 1600+ DPS with it.

    The key is to make sure that you optimize the living flames(?) DoT from the archon tree as much as possible (heatwave removes the recast on it) and when you are optimal geared it rapes and gives you 10% mana back.

    For trash its all about having your ground effect down, use the non-cinderburst mageshield and then doubletap firestorm as much as possible.
    You do this by casting it, let it tick twice, tap w to interrupt the spell right after the 2nd tick and place it again. When doing this effectively you reduce the wait time between the ticks.

    Make sure you abuse smoldering power as much as possible.

    SC/Ele is still the best AoE spec and I have not seen any other mage spec beat it.

    With that said, I would love to see some parses w/ your spec.

    Just call me curious...

    I made the raid parse in the other thread.

    EDIT: ill just repost it here:
    Its on the first boss in GSB - 11k RW dps and this parse is prolly 1½ months old.



    I main a chloro in raids and hardly ever play any dps outside instances i don't soloheal (due to a cleric wanna try).
    I did FC with a pug that absolutely hated me because i kept dying. I was doing 2000-3500 dps on trashmobs in there.
    I wish i had some more raid dps parses for you.
