Fellow mage looking for some input

Well about the gemming you should get PvP Power gems. PvP Power incrases your damage to other players. I started PvPing as Mage about yesterday so I'm not sure about the rest. Oh and about the 4) part. Dot spec Warlock is must with Fire mage but I dont know about frost. I think Balance Druid. Grouping with Balance druid will save your life... You will see. I don't really know about frost. Never played as frost. I have always played as Arcane and Fire (Arcane/Fire). But I hope I helped a little.
I use MSBT to show my Ignite ticks in their own separate scroll area. Works great.
Fellow Fire Mage, hai!
Bit late, but hopefully still going to be somewhat helpful. I don't have much PvP experience this expansion so I might have to skip those.
1) As far as Combustion goes, the addition of Alter Time allows us to use Combustion far more actively than we used to.
Combining Alter Time with Presence of Mind will allow you to have at the minimum 4 instant Pyros in a row. Combustion should used immediately after the last Pyro.
It'll go something like this:
- Fireball until Crit, Inferno Blast, this will give you Hot Streak
- Fireball again until Crit - this will give you Heating Up
- Once you've got both Heating Up and Hot Streak, use Presence of Mind and Alter Time (In that order)
- Use Pyro (1) and Pyro(2)
- If Pyro (1) crits, you'll get another Pyro because your Heating up would become a Hot Streak, use the Pyro (3)
- Pre-emptively end Alter Time. This will give you: Presence of Mind, Hot Streak and Heating up.
- Use Pyro (1) and Pyro (2), again use Pyro (3) if you can.
Now it does sound a bit complicated, but it is easier in action than it is on paper. I left a few details out as there are situations when you can get 8 Pyros if lucky, but that's going too in depth into it.
Here's a macro to make your life easier:
#showtooltip Presence of Mind
/cast Presence of Mind
/cast Alter Time
/use 10 is your glove slot, that'll trigger Synapse.
There will be time when Combustion is available but Alter Time isn't. So every other Combustion will be done with Presence of Mind only.
- Get Hot Streak, Heating up. Use Presence of Mind.
- Cast 2 or 3 Pyros depending on Crits
I have been using Combustion this way since about a month into the expansion and I'd say I prefer it to the old ways of watching Ignite. Usually gives me a 30-45k Ignite if I remember correctly.
Try to line procs up when you use this, but again, that's going into details.
3) You can't use on use trinkets and Synapse at the same time sadly. So you'll have to either ditch Engi or find a Proc trinket. The better trinkets this tier are both procs tho, so hopefully you'll be able to get those.
