I like to save convert for my burn phases to get as much of the astral fire phase out of them as possible.
Oh yeah. I remember you saying this before. One thing I've noticed is that if you do not get ANY Thundercloud or Firestarter procs, you will run low on MP before
Raging Strikes is run out (or if you slide the instant cast in without triggering GCD). That Convert would give you the +2 Fires that would count for at least
a Flare + Transpose/Blizz. Not to mention 2 more chances for Firestarter.
On that note, yet another Pro for Thunder II over Thunder III occurred to me. Seeing as every Thundercloud Proc effective causes you to DoT clip, Thunder II's lesser duration actually decreases this loss. In other words, Thundercloud procs can
make the +.5 second of extra casting time for Thunder III not count for extra DPS at all. Edited, Nov 21st 2013 5:46pm by Gnu
