Interesting. I didn't realize they didn't stack (obviously). So that makes sense to remove Wave and just run with MoF which should be more than enough.Exposure values don't stack, they just take the highest value. If you had MoF running it would be -10 and then if you hit them with Wave then it would go to -25. Your Ascendancy augments whatever the current exposure value is. Combustion doesn't actually add exposure it just lowers their current resistance by another 19 at the current level you have it. So Combustion will work with either Master or Wave but Wave will overwrite Master if it tags something.
Purifying Flame is decent to have in itself on trigger as it creates the consecrated ground which increases damage to monsters standing on it and gives you 6% life regen if you're standing on it. Since you have Combustion tied to it it has 49% chance to ignite and that will give you more damage as RF can't ignite on its own. The ignite is also one of the reasons most people use flamewall or scorching ray instead of cyclone. Cyclone gives more defense but the other two are big DPS boosters.
I will leave Purifying Flame and combustion for the reasons you outlined. I should probably consider flamewall or scorching ray in place of cyclone (which is just an annoying movement mechanic. Especially if I keep popping the QS flask for the warding effect.
