For a fire dps, I'd suggest a range oriented weapon if you're going to use interruptibles like Fireburst. Fast AOEs is the way to go for melee.
My loadout is purely for tanking and staying alive. I very rarely dps and that's usually during raids. Backdraft, Enflame, Meteor, Burning Determination, Burnout, and Reignition. This could work just as well for a dps, but their focus is supposed to be dealing damage and my loadout doesn't exactly have the big damage dealers like Snuff Out.
In the end, it's all determined by playstyle.
Thats your raid loadout? I've very interested on how it compares to mine.. I prefer wildfire over burnout in PvE. Ill put on Burnout, and BD for PvP though.
Amazon Deflect, Backdraft, Meteor, AbsorbHeat or BD, Reignition, Wildfire.
I dont put anything into Defense or Toughness.. All skill points go into health/might/Rejuv. With Wildfire/Absorb Heat/Backdraft being able to stack. I can boost my health to all sorts of crazyness.
I heard Burnout helps against Wing Armors, and other crowd effects in Bat Cave etc, but I never tested it. I heard BD does the same thing, but it seems like it only works half the time? I dont know, but I have no trouble being the only tank in all the raids with this loadout. I find that holding aggro in this game as a tank is a piece of cake. Whats more important to me for a tank is your survivability.
