Name: Combustion
Class: Mage
What it should be doing: Combine your DoT effects into a big DoT effect without consuming any of them.
What it's currently doing: **** ton of damage

Now I'm no fire mage expert by any means so there may be incorrect stuff in here but please point it if you believe so.

We all know combustion does ridiculious damage with almost no setup required currently.

All tests provided will be done with 10072 spell power, 25% mastery and 4.75% haste. They are also tested on the target dummy so 0 resilience applies.

Ignite: 4515 (4515/2 = ~2258 DPS) Fireball was used for this Ignite.
Combustion: 4324 DPS

This is more than double DPS of what it should be doing.

Living Bomb: 6719 (6719/3 = 2240 DPS)
Combustion: 5177 DPS

This is also more than double DPS of what it should be doing.

Pyroblast DoT: 3087 (3087/3 = 1029 DPS)
Combustion: 4178 DPS

This is just above 4 times as much DPS of what it should be doing.

Now testing Combustion with all dots combined

Ignite: 5220 (5220/2 = 2610 DPS) Provided from a 43521 Pyroblast crit.
Pyroblast DoT: 3087 (3087 /3 = 1029 DPS)
Living Bomb: 6719 (6719/3 = 2240 DPS)
Combustion: 7174 DPS

If everything worked properly it should be tick for 5879 (May not be exactly precise due to the actual combustion formula being a little bit more complex)

Note: I will be testing on targets with resilience later aswell so don't lock this thread please.

I've heard rumors about it being hard to fix. I'll check the spell myself and see how it goes in its way. For now its in Progress

I'll be testing the spell out and nerfing the spell and see the results.

Its sad to say but this will indeed take a while for me to figure out how to fix it. Since its a spell chain that has to be nerfed in all various ways which is very difficult to all balance it out.

For now i'll keep this in progress and work on the other bugs that are here.
