Quasta patch farà effetto sul Pyro e sullo Storm, sopratutto il Pyro con questa:

Heat Wave: No longer reduces the global cooldown.

Riducerà parecchio il burst dps

I vari aoe tipo Firstorn e Devouring shadows fanno danno ogni secondo anzichè 2, ma ogni tick fa meno danno

Bho non vedo niente di buono in sta patch

Ecco un bel copia -incolla da bluedot sulle nuove possibili spec da mago :

This is a list of the builds I have found to be the highest DPS on the current PTS patch.
They are all subject to change, and will be updated as the PTS is updated. The rotations are not perfect as they haven’t been tested in a raid environment.
On the dummies I have been parsing the best with the 51 Pyro and the SC/Pyro. This may change dramatically in a raid or on specific encounters. It can also change before it goes to live servers so take it with a grain of salt.
Keep in mind there is still a lot of debating on the little details of the rotation or the exact build, these are what I have found to be the best but until I can test them in a raid I can’t know for sure. As soon as I can i’ll have a much more detailed guide for each of these as well as movie guides.

51 Lock / 8 Necro / 5 Ele + 2
Rotation:
  1. Life Leech
  2. Necrosis
  3. Dark Touch
  4. Neddra’s Torture
  5. Defile
  6. Spam Void Bolt until DoT refresh
This build takes advantage of the new 40 point Warlock Ability Void Decimation, which increases Void Bolts damage by .75% per point at and after 40 points in Warlock, and per Death DoT on the target. At 51 Warlock your Void Bolt gets an additional 8.25% per Death DoT on the target. Necro is to increase Death damage and get Necrosis. Ele is to increase Crit, which is even better if you have the 4 Piece HK Warlock Crystal.

28 Pyro / 38 Lock / 0 Archon
Taking Opportunity is actually better then some of the other talents like Neddra’s Torture, Neddra’s Grasp, etc.
Rotation:
  1. Life Leech
  2. Dark Touch
  3. Draining Bolt
  4. Defile
  5. Spam Void Bolt
This only works if you have the 4 piece HK Warlock Crystal.

51 Pyro / 11 Archon / 4 Warlock
Priority System:
  1. Fulminate
  2. Cinder Burst on Proc
  3. Leeching Flames
  4. Fireball with Heatwave
  5. Countdown with 3 stacks of Combust
  6. Searing Vitality
  7. Withering Flames
  8. Flamebolt (Wildfire)
  9. Fireball spam
Might look complicated but it isn’t once you try it. You can use macros to make it even easier.

51 Ele / 11 Pyro / 4 Lock
Rotation:
  1. Ignite
  2. Icy Carapace
  3. Lightning Strike
  4. Crystalline Missile
Use the Air pet. Use Fast Summon to summon Swarming Flames. Use Intensify Elements while Swarming Flames are up. Keep ignite on the target.

35 Stormcaller / 31 Pyro / 0 Archon

You can also go 36/30 or 38/28
Rotation:
  1. Raging Storm
  2. Ice Shear
  3. Icicle
  4. Cloudburst Spam
  5. Refresh Electrify with Forked Lightning
Use Static Flux.
