Re: Is the squalls deck worth it?

Like the title says is the squalls deck worth buying?
It's not great, but also very cheap. Unless you got good 340+ trinkets it's worth it. If you're unsure just sim it (simc link can be found on wowhead).

Re: Tips for a new mage.

I've always wanted to main a mage but never really did it. I usually play a hunter, because I like the mobility and flexibility of the class. In some sort of way I think mages are similar to hunters, I dont want to just make the "what spec is the best" questions. but rather what are some advices fo...

Re: Legion Tier Gear Set Bonuses?

Simcraft (via raidbots) is telling me to keep using my 240/230 T21 2 pc Legion gear over a 310/281 BfA set because it sims better. The set of BfA gear has 88 more INT overall, so I am curious if everyone thinks that tier bonus s worth more than the additional INT. I questioned raidbots, the reply m...

Re: How does everyone feel about 8.0 Arcane?

Everytime I que for a dungeon I can't imagine myself playing anything but arcane. Still on the lower end of gear but have been blowing every class out of the water on AoE. Can't play without that on demand burst AoE I think. Will agree that it is monotonous and a simple rotation, but the dynamic of...

Re: Secondary stats, shatter cap

I'm sitting at an average ilvl of 331 with crit on each piece of gear except for weapon/pants/trinkets. I have 21.06% crit right now. I could see that climbing to 26%-27% with the addition of weapons/pants/trinket from uldir and heroic uldir upgrades. But definitely not 33%, that's probably going t...

Re: [8.0] Fire Mage guide for BFA

Is there a break point in which crit becomes the best stat? I see on guides crit as the generic best stat. Obviously you have to sim yourself but crit is always my lowest lol and it’s still terrible for me even if I’m close to 60% crit . So I guess I’m confused why it’s generalized our best if I ca...

Re: How does everyone feel about 8.0 Arcane?

I agree with most of your points (especially the part about Kilt) but our AoE is definitely not lacking. I usually top every trash pull in M+, and if you cheese with the Tomb tier you can still run "Charged Up" and resonance at the same time. Curious to see how it goes as we move into BfA though. I...

Re: How does everyone feel about 8.0 Arcane?

Running Overpowered+Time Anomaly albeit only for a very short time was intriguing other than that the spec is basically dead to me. Not touching it unless it gets drastic changes for 8.1. About things that need changing there's a whole list. - Mana Management: So far it has either been irrelevant or...

Re: Is there a "reasonable" percentile to aim for?

So, all in all I was wondering if differences may be due to non personal factors (other raid members, RNG). And you seem to claim, that personal performance would easily get you to 90+ on heroic on farm on any spec. Did I get this right? Maybe thats right and interpreting the logs isnt easy at all....

Spend AM charges if you have too many then barrage, yes.

Re: Sindragosa vs Magtheridon's

Raidbots is favoring Sindragosa helm over Magtheridon bracers for me (with Shard being 2nd lego), but warcraft log review for frost mages in my ilvl bracket shows Magtheridon's + Shard being used. I want to trust the sim but I also want to trust the logs.... looking for some insight. Thanks! Use lo...

Re: Is there a "reasonable" percentile to aim for?

[...] Not sure if you're talking about parses during progression or farm so I am just going to cover both topics. During progression (or basically in general) ranks are the least accurate and probably most toxic way of comparing player performance. During progression what counts is doing ANYTHING t...

Re: What can i do during fights to improve my DPS??

Well then give us an actual log to look at, although most of my comments still apply - you just need to be more careful about your mana usage that's all.

Hey so with T21 set bonuses and the bonus dmg Ice lances gets, is it important to keep Matheridon's stacks at 6 all the time? Even if it means to Ice lance without any procs. Anyone experimented with this? Don't use dry ice lances to keep the buff . Tracking chain reaction and magtheridon stacks al...

If you have good low/no crit replacement items it might be. Using the top gear feature on raidbots.com is probably the best way to find out.
