Re: T12 Swap canceling Arcane Power on pull

Are you also switching trinkets?
That's my guess as well - could even be something simple like swapping trinket slots between the 2 sets.

Re: Fire on Xhul'Horac Mythic progress - help appreciated! :

I can't think of a strategy that should use BL at start. The boss is designed to be harder at the very end and gradually easier towards the start. 90% of the difficulty (or "difficulty") of the fight is people understanding how the mechanics work, it's not so much a numbers fight, but it is a fight...

Re: Fire on Xhul'Horac Mythic progress - help appreciated! :

For trinkets you'd want to use DSI and Sandman's. I agree with Astaine that most of the questions you've asked can be found in the the fire forum. Fire's cleave can be valuable but you're not going to be a huge help on imps in general. When you happen to have combustion up you'll wreck them, but out...

Re: Gear questions -

ilvls make more of a difference than people think - Int is really good. Plus, for Arcane there really isn't much of a difference in the secondary weights for most stats. So basically those 2 boots are equal. One may flip ahead or behind the other based on individual stat weights and your current gea...

Re: Am I causing wipes? "Inconsistent DPS"

I only looked at a handful of the long wipes, so maybe you're screwing up a lot in the shorter pulls but I didn't see anything where you outright caused a big issue then. I'm always hesitant to say that one person not doing well damage wise on a fight is the reason something wasn't a kill, because t...

Re: Alternative to arcane bis boots?

Are these zakuun boots going to sim well assuming that the mage is already between 2000-2200 haste and has a good amount of mastery already? Like 740+ ilvl? They will sim comparably to the other boots. The mage's stats and ilvl will influence exact stat weights which will swing one or the other sli...

Re: Am I causing wipes? "Inconsistent DPS"

I'm not the best at analyzing logs either, but you're not casting enough. On the longest pulls you have, you are always near the top of damage in P1 - which is where an Arcane mage should be. Even then though, you seem to have 85-90% uptime in P1 when there really should be very little movement. The...

Can you be targeted for Felseeker if you have Wrath?
Yes, you can still be targeted by Felseeker if you're ranged with Wrath, just not gaze or imps.

Re: Alternative to arcane bis boots?

I've talked to other mages in my guild and server, not one of them agreed that the mythic boots off zakuun are a rough equal to the mythic soulrenders. Is this info outdated now that kill times are so fast nowdays? No, its been that way throughout the tier every time I've simmed my own character. I...

but with upcoming progression, I'd like to be better at fire Why? Fire really needs pretty good gear to do well, and you don't have that yet. Arcane is going to be your better choice for progression on just about any fight you have left. Xhul would probably have the best argument for being Fire ove...

Re: Alternative to arcane bis boots?

The 730 boots from Zakuun came out ever so slightly ahead of the BoE ones last time I simmed them myself - which was a while ago but basically they should be about the same. They would definitely be better than the crafted boots.

Re: Arcane mage guide for raiding by Dutchmagoz! [6.2 update

2100 is not a set breakpoint, its just a very basic approximation. Depending on your other gear/stats you'll want more or less. You should sim yourself to see where you're at.

The 2100 # is rating from gear, not counting buffs.

Re: Challenge Mode - Questions about gear!

Are you just looking to get your golds or push for fast times for competition? If you're just looking for golds you don't need to really min/max to a huge degree - just look for as much MS as you can get. Knowing the strats for each dungeon and how/what to pull will get you gold once your group is c...

Re: Orb of Insight for Mythic Mann/Arch

I agree with Chiv, I wouldn't use it as Arcane. I did use it for Frost when I tried that during both Manny and Arch progression, though that was before upgrades, I'm not sure how it stacks up now.

You have to select stat weights or scale factors (I forget what they call it) when you go through the options for the sim.

Yes, I'm telling you its worth it only on your PC, but the rest of your burn you should be ignoring it. If/when Doom Nova is up on anything, you'd cast them on that target of course.
