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: LF Support for Arcane tweaks BfA

Also you stated using AM is a dps decrease even with CC, this is false according to the sims.

Re: BfA Arcane write-up

Since clearcasting doesn't stack how do you make sure that you're not eating charges?
You press AM the instant you get it.

Treat it the same as a BF proc now.

Re: To clarify some stuff with dps, stats and gear

you do a mini burn when there is no way to get extra damage or the full damage on your next AP, like if the mob takes extra damage, you have 2 mobs side by side, a haste buff, or you might have to move during ap or delay it for 10+ second to get full burn ect. A lot of arcane dps is luck, if you get...

Re: Arcane DPS :(

I didn't use the 2nd rune right away because you have to move from the corrupted circles and I figured I might as well wait a few more seconds to get some more AMs up. After lots of mythic argus p1 wipes I've had a lot of opener practice and I'm pretty sure you should only chain ROPs if you have lus...

Re: Kilt: Simcraft vs. Reality?

If things fuck up (which they usually do) kilt is about 100 times more forgiving. If you know you have to move in 4 seconds you can just spam 4AB a few extra times in the hope to get a AM proc so you lose no dps at all, and then if you dont get them you can clear and AE on the move and you'll end up...

Change ABr to single target, but it applies nether tempest at the relevant AC level.

Re: Arcane Alt Advice

The sims are not accurate for arcane unless you make the fight length exactly the same.

There's a huge difference between a fight ending at 2:59 and 3:20

Re: Details resets at Evocation

If you are running double ring with high mastery you should wait till you are topped up when using evo, it can account for three 4 stack abs which is a lot better than 1 gcd.

Re: under-performing by 21-33%. please help!

Well I meant in terms of raw damage, 945 terminus does about 9m with rop and AP where as sentinel will do 14m to 17m.

Re: [7.3.2] Arcane Mage M+ Guide

for hymdall drop your rop then go all the way to the right of it, then if you get targeted but the blade run to your left and you should be able to get the full use out of it.
