For mages, Helms are available for Firebolt and Ice Shards. While the rings for Firestorm reduces CD and the rings for Firebolt is direct damage.

40k firestorm is same DPS as an 16.7k fire bolt...
No mage should be going for firestorm gear anyways. None of it was designed to be mained DPS gear and is only a gain as a hotswap. At EG, especially after DG, ice shards outdpses and outdamages fire storm with appropriate swaps. Even though ice shards has same CD, shorter cast, it’s gear gives it more damage, eventually easily outpacing attune.
Furthermore, this disparity is even more apparent with bolt vs storm. Bolt is 7+0, storm is 15+2, even with 40% storm CD and 0 bolt (7+0 vs 9+2) with mighty Gele bolt adding 405 and mighty storm adding 608, the fire bolt ring outdpses the storm at 57.85 DPS from bolt ring to 55.22 DPS for storm.
No fire mage, should ever prioritize storm gear lel.

Its not for dps, its just for a high number to look good on paper, some would say go ice then i say i pull your pants down. I rather jump off gele towers then see any ice gear on my mage but thanks for the feedback bobz.
