So not too fond of opening threads, but this almost blew out our brains.

Am I missing something, or is there a Fire mage bug?

Playing some 3v3 we got basically trolled down by a fire mage team where the mage .literally. didn't do anything else but spam Flamestrike and occasionally Ring of Frost. Not even bothered to poly or Dragon's Breath, just melted our faces down - at the end of the match he did like 2 times of our DH + Feral's damage, classes that suppose to top the charts.

I mean literally he only constantly casted Flamestrike with 0.5-0.7 sec cast time/instant. Shouldn't it have like 2 sec cast time without Hot Streak?

Is that a build? A broken mechanic? A bug? Did anyone else faced this?

World in Flames - Reduces the cast time of Flamestrike by 2.5 sec, and increases its damage by 30%

no bug, just intended gameplay i'm afraid :)

No because the difference is when I play a comp i play it close to skill cap

if anyone needs to be banned, it's you. You do nothing but sit on AJ being a passive aggressive idiot that nobody likes, sorry you stink of washing up liquid.

Feel free to call me an idiot because I'm a hunter or some stupid ass remark but I've actually written all this down on paper

I actually made an appearance at DH2014 and I met up with people from twitch who were involved with the dota 2 / cs tournies that where there, I talked about the game from my perspective as a professional player and we actually shared a lot of opinions. All I'm saying is a lot of people will be VERY surprised about the future of this game in the esport world :)

Jesus Christ

So it's basically World on Flames + Flame Patch (+ some haste shit). Awesome design.

Really confused about how big of a deal some people have made that video. The mage popped combustion and still only did half the damage of the demon hunter

Yeah... I'm very uncertain what the developers had in mind while designing these talents.

"You know what an underused ability in PvP is? Flamestrike. How do we make it so players will use it?"

Hmm...

"Let's make it near instant cast, do a decent amount of damage, and make it spammable!"

Did you see a literally flamestrike spamming Fire mage yet? Not like Ziqo and that video where they globalled everyone but casting like 100 flame strikes in the match.

Ok this was the second time I faced this, now on my pally. Seems intended indeed.

Amazing, especially if you consider that this dude was in the horde tower all the time and still did top dmg. I could enjoy his Flame Strike spamming first hand.

The horde mage was also fire I think.

I wonder if this will be still viable on full honor/artifact.
