    I was wondering what the proper or best DoT rotation I could be using as a FP mage is.

    I haven't played FP seriously since like 07 so quite some time has passed and many changes have been put in place.

    For example, what all skills apply unique DoT's? Does Explosion burn count as the same burn from Meteor? Can I stack poison brace and mist poisons?

    Thanks!

    (Obligatory @Jushi since Jushi probably knows this answer.)

    The Fire/Poison Mage rotation is pretty demanding. You'll first need to obtain either a bunch of mesos or a Job Advancement Coin and switch to Ice/Lightning Mage, then continue playing the game normally.

    Just kidding. :bigfan: should be able to help you out.

    have ifrit summoned
    have ignite toggled on (and teleport mastery - beware of reflect on teleport mastery)
    Use meteor to keep it on cooldown for the passive
    keep 5 dots up
    mist eruption on cd

    ----------------

    You should be able to keep 5 or more dots going on the enemy boss with:
    Paralyze
    Flame haze
    Poison fog (spawned by flame haze)
    Hyper (megido flame)
    Ifrit (attack applies dot)
    Poison breath (probably not worth applying)
    Teleport mastery

    Mist eruption used to be easy to do because it had 0 cd and you'd simply rotate it with flame haze while keeping dots up for final damage. Now it's a 5 second cd and is a lower cd if you had 5 dots up when used.

    You also have your two 5th job attacks to throw in.

    Or you could be useful by swapping to bishop and be a walking buff.
