    Needs to work on Living Bomb and Invoker's energy uptimes, neither should have downtime

    Hunters, Just get a Sporebat, most LFRs will be missing that buff.

    300 to 500k according to raidbots, simcraft says 400k for a 566 geared on a patch work fight.

    Yeah I ran a sim on her gear and came out with like 355k just wasn't sure if that was realistic since she is no where close

    Just doing some stalking but the fire mage on the last pull last night only had 52% uptime on Living Bomb and 73% on Invoker's Energy. I suggest getting her some really obvious/obnoxious Weak auras or something, maybe something that Bleats at her if you lets IE fall off in combat and maybe something that covers her entire screen if LB is about to fall off a hostile target in combat. As a Fire mage the only time she wants to let living bomb fall off is if she wants to stop DPS. She should be refreshing prior to last tick, unless she desperately doesn't want it to explode (because it will break CC or something) in which case she should refresh before the second to last tick She's also hard casting pyroblasts, not sure if there's a point where maybe her cloak and lust and another temp hast buff make that a good idea but it seems like a bad idea. Cmbustion usage seems to be kinda off too, sometimes delays it for a really long time. at one point she has a 3 minute Delay on it; for a 90 second cd that's excessive even if waiting for a string of pyroblast crits. Really if she's got Combustion off CD, she should wait until she gets a pyroblast proc, and then gets a heating up proc then cast as fireball and a pyroblast, then one more spell then a combustion anyway.
