Jan 22nd 2012 4:38AM You may be missing some of the method of using CombustionHelper. Let me see if I can help you by explaining my thought process and what I'm looking at during raid casting:
-Using a combination of CombustionHelper and combat text I watch for that opportunity via watching for crits. I know about how large a single Fireball or Pyroblast will crit for, so if I get two crits in a row I'm probably in business. CH acts more as a reaffirmation that whatever I suspect just happened actually happened. It also acts as a learning tool to hone your instinct of when to use Combustion.
-I want to use Combustion on at least a 15k ignite AND Living Bomb up. Hopefully there will also be a Pyroblast DoT.
-2 Crits happen BUT they were simultaneous Fireball and Pyroblast - that means one of the ignites is almost certainly munched, and the DoT is only for one of the spells.

Regarding BM: it's a relatively unique instance style. I think that a lot of people like it because of the non-linear nature of the encounter.

I imagine that an Elementalist Mage (Fire/Frost hybrid) *could* do the entire place in one pull, but it would be a rare player with the skill and patience to figure it out.
