    I use Metor first since the time between cast and first hit is longer than fire storm. really like your rotation tho. i also like how you can go so advanced with the combat at only lv 25 which is really early in the game state and you will probably get alot more spells for higher lvs with will probably enables even further advanced rotations and which also has more synergy with diffrent spells like you show in your rotation.
    Ah, I've noticed that meteor first is way better when you play solo. I rarely use Firestorm / Hailstorm when I do solo runs, only in RoM when you get flooded. Yea, I'm not trying to say that "I'm right and you are wrong", so don't take my message wrong. I just wanted to share the rotation I found out to do most damage and give an example for how flexible the dps rotation already can be, with so few spells/talents/pets added in the game.

    Really nice guide by the way, good work =)
    didnt mean to sound rude or anything when i said it. your rotation is really good and what you said had alot of good points in it

    Thank you for the guide! I started playing around 4-5 days ago and I have used your guide since then, though I only made an account yesterday so I thought I might as well drop by and show my gratitude.

    Also, may I know what set (and its stats) you're currently using? I'm in the middle of getting my full Frozen gear, been checking the market nonstop for quite some time now. I'm curious as to what kind of stats should I aim for.

    And another question that is a bit general, do you happen to know the difference between an item that is Heroic (Normal) and Heroic (High) or Heroic (Very High)? Is it just a slight difference in DPS or is there anything more? Is it worth to get the High or Very High at a higher price?

    Can you change it to
    Int>Magic crit rate>magic dmg/magic crit dmg
    Your <> might confuse people.
    < = Less than
    > = Greater than

    I would say Int>magic attack>mag crit>mag crit attack
    Don't bother with defenses, wizards got no such thing. It's all a lie. Like the cake in portal.
    As for the Normal, High, Very High. Well if you look at the stats you'll notice that an item that's High or Very High has better dps stats or defense stats than a normal or High item if you got Very High item. Also if not mistaken a High or Very High armor piece has more chance for higher stats, for example a normal item would be able to get +60 Int , but a Very High could have a chance for a +90 Int stat. Could be wrong on this last part though. But should be something like it.

    Rotation 1
    Inferal Meteor>Fire Storm>FireBurst x3 (buff stack now 5)> Ember Bomb>Fire Barrage> Filler untill you can repeat each ability with cd as they come up
    Rotation 2
    FireBurst x5 >Inferal Meteor>Fire Storm>Ember Bomb>Fire Barrage> Filler untill you can repeat each ability with cd as they come up
    Shouldn't Fire Storm come before Infernal Meteor?

    if you are using the link skill thing yes. but since i made this guide pretty early on and they dont explain what key or how you do it, its not in the guide cause i couldt find out how to do it.

    forums.icarus.nexon.net/discussion/6961/current-endgame-wizard-guide-lv-25 Gives proper rotations for pretty much every situation as well as elaborates on the spells that are not covered in this guide. This is a good beginning guide however.

    I combined your guide and Kilvorian's guide guide in Google Docs. This way those who are lazy to read and just want super simple and fast to read formatting can quickly skim through. I have given you guys complete credit. :)

    Ok I feel ridiculous but I cannot figure out how to stack Flameburst. I had no problems stacking attacks for my warrior and my berserker but I'm having a terrible time with the wizard. Please help?

    you stack the flame buff using fire spells and the icebuff using ice spells. as i wrote in the guide if you use fire spell when you got icebuff the icebuff is removed and you stack firebuff instead
