Fanatic Swing

Required Level
18
Prerequisites
None
Difference from Zeal (LoD)
Almost none. (The skill itself is faster to make a Sorceress attack as fast as a Paladin.)
Pros
Lets a Sorceress zeal roughly as fast as a Paladin. Works fine with Enchant.
Cons
Other defensive skills and good defensive gears are also necessary to stay alive in melee. Less life leech because of less weapon damage.

Fire Mastery

Required Level
30
Prerequisites
None
Difference from the LoD version
Improved initial damage increase. Less damage increase per level. Oskill Fire Mastery grants less damage increase.
Pros
Boosts all Fire Damage including melee/ranged Fire damage. Just 1 hard point brings a large bonus.
Cons
For many skills, investing in synergies is better than investing in Fire Mastery after the initial point, particularly if you have a lot of +skills from items.

Notes
Pre-buff skills (specifically Enchant and Holy Fire) now receive the full bonus granted by Fire Mastery in R3x ("+% To Fire Skill Damage" also works like FM). Note that the fire damage on your weapon is further multiplied by Fire Mastery at full strength (using the target's FM, not the caster's), so ultimately these skills receive more benefit from Fire Mastery than direct damage skills. If Enchant is cast on a minion or player with no Fire Mastery skill of their own, Fire Mastery has less effect.

For those skills, the fire damage shown in the skill description is [(base * (1 + synergies)] * [1 + Fire Mastery + Fire Skill Damage bonus]. The fire damage added to the melee/ranged damage in the LCS is then further multiplied by (1 + Fire Mastery + Fire Skill Damage bonus) before being added to the weapon damage.

There has been some discussion as to whether Fire Mastery works with fire damage on ranged weapons, the current consensus is that it does.
