Hot Streak is a Mage talent in the Fire tree.

With the Fire Mage's natural high chance to critically strike, this talent is a very good burst booster in PvP and a very good single-target DPS booster in PvE, though it requires that the Mage also spec into Pyroblast. Its purpose is also to increase the amount of interactivity in Fire Mage play, turning the endless Fireball and Scorch rotation into an active Hot Streak hunt.

Patch changes Edit

WoW Icon 16x16 Hotfix (2009-08-06): "Hot Streak triggers exactly as stated in its tooltip: “2 non-periodic spell criticals in a row using Fireball, Fire Blast, Scorch, Living Bomb, or Frostfire Bolt”. Only non-periodic damage interacts with it, and only those spells listed. Periodics do not affect the streak in any way. Direct damage from the listed spells always count, for or against the streak."
Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.0.8 (2009-01-20): Now also affected by Living Bomb.
Bc icon/Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.0.2 (14-Oct-2008): Added.
