Re: Simple stat percentage question

1. You don't need 33.34% crit as frost. It's a cap, but you don't actively go for it. 2. Simply adding Masterful will not reduce your crit. Stats don't work like that. It takes your rating, and coverts it to a percentage, and it won't change unless your rating changes(i,e by changing gear/gems/ etc)...

Re: Is Font that necessary ?

Hello Mages, I’m a returning player that missed 8.2 completely meaning I don’t have Font. So Is Font that necessary ? Is Heroic Font be good enough to beat current 8.3 trinkets ?

Re: Hyperthread Wristwraps vs Infinite Stars 3

Infinite stars is a sim trap, and it rarely works out well in either M+, or fights within the current raid.
I'd just use the hyperthread bracers.

Re: GS Build Stats

Gs build as in standard frost, or noIL? NoIL prefers Mastery.

As in all things, it's probably best to sim it to know for sure.

You can cast GS with no BF if you can hit the target at 5 IF stacks

Re: Help requested please!

You're doing low dps because you're not utilizing any of the top performing Frost specs. You'd do more dps simply going and gearing for either NoIL, Forb or even standard spec.

There's also an undocumented Icicle buff in the ptr now. It ends up being a buff to frost as a whole

Re: Glacial spike shatter

Notice the fight was stormwall. Are you too close to the boss?
GS has a minimum range (~8 yds) where it wont shatter.

Re: Ebonbolt usage with Glacial Spike

Using Ebon on CD except when you have 4+ icicles is a very slight dps increase. Probably around ~0.3%.
It's not a big swing either way. If you prefer to have Ebon as backup, you could hold it and there wouldn't be too much difference.

Re: GS not top DPS talent anymore?

Certain configurations of stats/traits have made LW/FT/TV more competitive, but it's not universal.

Generally, GS is still stronger on average.

Re: Crit levels?

The only stat that affects BF proc generation is haste.
The reason you're seeing crit drop is because Frost generally wants a balance of all stats (except mastery). If you have too much crit over other stats, it's value will drop in relation to the other stats.

No, you always just spend them as they come. Also, you can only get 2 procs, not 3.

Re: Double Instant Pyro's no casts in between HOW??

Also note Icy veins claims scorch has no travel time. So that's where my confusion lies It's technically not a travel time, but server lag. What happens is that consuming hotstreak is a client event, that it, it happens on your local pc. However, registering a crit is server side, so it takes some ...
