Re: Definitive guidance on how to spend FoFs w/wo Brain Free

You have to keep in mind that this decision only really needs to be made during the cast of a Frostbolt . If you aren't casting a frostbolt (say because you had to move) it's 100% correct to clear out your FoF procs before starting to Frostbolt->BF->IL again. As for cancelling casts it's technically...

Re: Guide to Thermally Voiding your Enemies in 7.2.5

So after talking to Norrinir about openers he was able to sim and compare some. He can probably share some of the details about how to sim openers correctly as it isn't very straight forward. Either way, I trust his abilities and he determined that the traditional Ebonbolt opener is simming the high...

Re: Guide to Thermally Voiding your Enemies in 7.2.5

I'll take consistency over high variance most days. :)

I only added in flurry there to cover bases because there's really not much else in the toolkit we could pre-cast. When we were using BC there was talk of it because it stacks BC, but it was never really worth it anyways.

Re: Guide to Thermally Voiding your Enemies in 7.2.5

Currently I don't think so now that they "fixed" GS. They're both still pretty close in numbers, but TV is definitely slightly ahead (and easier to play).

Re: Guide to Thermally Voiding your Enemies in 7.2.5

I've been retracing some replies here and I wanted to add some input to the opener with T20. Sims are pretty funky when it comes to pre-combat so it's not easy to find the best way to do an opener. I've been doing this: Frostbolt -> IV (during travel time) -> FO -> Frostbolt (during Frozen Orb trave...

Re: Guide to Thermally Voiding your Enemies in 7.2.5

That's beyond the scope of this guide. The guide was written aimed at new players to TV in order to inform them how to play. I previously linked to Frosted's sims based on the default profiles he and others came up with as a resource, but I had no intention of putting them in this guide. I do intend...

Re: Glacial Spike - How to Ham 101

Everyone who simmed using the new data and shared it on Discord is showing about the same general stat weights for their current gear.

Re: Guide to Thermally Voiding your Enemies in 7.2

I try to update it slightly after the patch is released in order to be sure things are correct. It's currently too early in the PTR build to know what's going to happen so I'm afraid you'll have to hold tight in anticipation like the rest of us. ;)

Re: Guide to Thermally Voiding your Enemies in 7.2

We did sim and test it that way ;) You just move the FoF line above/below BF priority in the APL to test both scenarios.

Re: Guide to Thermally Voiding your Enemies in 7.1.5

If you're looking for maximum IV uptime on average then yeah BC and FT will give you more FoF procs than LW/SI thanks to water jet and slightly increased FoF generation. Sometimes a bit more uptime doesn't necessarily translate into the highest dps though, but you need to sim yourself to find out wh...

Re: 871 Frost Mage Trying To Maintain 400K DPS

I'm not sure if the talents you logged out in are what you use, but I would swap out of Comet Storm and into Thermal Void - especially because you have the legendary gloves. Lonely Winter is typically less dps than Bone Chilling unless you're really bad at using water jet near cooldown and getting p...

Re: Guide to Thermally Voiding your Enemies in 7.1.5

As of now not until you get the Gul'dan trinket and have high haste and even then I think it's close to BC. I'm not bothering to even mess with it until the end of the tier when all of our boss strategies are fleshed out so I can minimize the risk from using it.

Curious, are there any good action bars that doesn't cough all over the place when you have heroism + icy veins and cast instant icelances? ElvUI action bars at least makes it really hard to use as it gets confused about GCD lengths or something (a similar issue arises during multiple fireblasts in...

The latest nightly was bugged with travel distances resulting in lower simmed dps. I'm not sure if it's fixed in the current nightly yet.

Re: Guide to Thermally Voiding your Enemies in 7.1.5

Thanks for the input Drozzy - it's always good to see another Frost mage doing well. I agree with you in that your uptime really depends on how lucky you get with frozen orb. It's unfortunate, but that's the way it is. It does seem to be more normalized this patch so far as I haven't cast one withou...

Also side question, how often do you notice your ice lances not hitting during the 1s shatter window after BF flurries? For me it happens like 15% of the time, but I only have 26% haste. E...
