Belt, I'm an avid reader of your AB, but I have to disagree with you on the power of hot streak. It's true that crits rarely come 3 times in a row (maybe not that rarely with combustion and boomkin aura), but the way I understand it, if you DO crit 3 times, then you're gonna crit the 4th time, and if you crit the 4th time.... then you've again crit 3 times in a row?To me that sounds like permacrit.Awesome talent.However, the way I read it, 100% increased chance sounds like double chance to crit, ie if you're crit chance is 20%, then it becomes 40%. This would make the talent not so awesome, but not so awesome for a different reason.If it IS permacrit though, I'd argue it's one of the best mage talents ever.

There's no way in heck they'd make it 100% perma-crit chance lol. That's just silly.BUT, if your other interpretation is correct (double chance, not 100% total), then I can see the streak continuing until you no longer crit.I don't honestly think that is the case. I feel it will work more like Combustion's mechanics, where it builds up, then starts over from zero.

Please, stop the talk about perma-crits, it just makes you look foolish.However, hiphophomies other idea... I was wondering about the wording of the talent. This could be the answer. Getting to 30% crit chance for fire spells is not hard, if this talent doubles that to 60% after 3 crits, and if each subsequent crit after the 3rd continues the streak, then I'd find this talent fun to play with. How to start a streak? Combustion helps a lot, but it has a long cooldown. If hiphophomies is right, and if either the cooldown of Combusion is decreased or new gear makes is relatively easy to reach a 40% fire crit rate, then this talent makes sense. Otherwise 3 crits in a row is just too rare.
