As a MONO element Fire is mediocre actually. Warhawk and Dragon Flame are the only things even keeping Fire upright at this point. Fire's early game mission lineup is really lacking compared to every other element which in turn hurts the effectiveness of Backstab and Dragon Flame. And in the late game Dragon Flame can only do so much against the onslaught of things like Tree Spam, Almighty Push, Lion's Mane, TBB, Tetragram, etc.
Honestly, as of Set 28, in terms of MONO elements (not rating synergy with other elements) Fire probably rates 5th. Only Water is potentially worse, and even then I could see arguments.
As a SUPPORTIVE element, Fire of course is still great thanks to said Dragon Flame and Warhawk and Backstab. It just won't have the rest of its own element weighing it down. Fire/X is still solid as hell. But Fire on its own will just not get the job done.
