Re: Blaster Master Nerfs

Yea this will be my last post here because it's worse than talking to a wall. I don't see how trait stacking is a problem seeing as it shows a clear breakdown of how much you gain as a function of how many of trait x you have on gear, which is a good representation of how good a trait is (e.g. Dupli...

BM second best trait behind Wildfire (which is overperforming compared to pretty much any other traits).

Seriously, just stop.

Re: Blaster Master Nerfs

Blaster Master is pretty ridicolously overpowered so I'm fine with it being nerfed to be honest. Thinking like that is why all the classes are so ridiculously boring to play right now. BM is not really that overpowered at all, and It's the only trait we have that is any fun and actually changes gam...

SImcraft and Blaster Master

Hey all,
I took a quick look at the simcraft API and it doesn't seem to play differently with or without BM. Am I missing something? If not, that would imply that BM sims are currently sub-optimal, despite the fact that they show it as the best trait in the game.

Re: Spec viability in Uldir and Mythics

Fire is arguably the worst spec in pve at the moment, Frost and Arcane are equally good so you can play whatever you prefer out of those two. Bullshit. Fire is the best performing mage spec in Uldir mythic atm. If we exclude Zul, where frost mages completely destroy everything, on almost every othe...

Re: New fire mage, Why is my raid dps so bad?

You should also look up how to optimize your Combustion use (which to be fair is not a straightforward cooldown to use). In the first Combustion of your Mother kill for example you hold on to Meteor until Combustion has expired, when instead you should Meteor >wait for the GCD to be almost over > ca...

Re: [BfA] Arcane Mage Guide for Battle for Azeroth (8.0)

Hi there, while siming myself, I figured that there seems to be a breakpoint around 6-7% of Haste. When I'm at 6% my haste weights at 3.02 and when I'm at 7%, it weights at 1.22. Can anyone explain me what is this breakpoint related to ? Thanks !! Check https://www.altered-time.com/forum/viewtopic....

If you burn > ap/evo > conserve until cds are up > burn again you don't get everything synching perfectly on the pull, if you evo on pull you do and you get both your big cds back exactly at the same time so executing is easier. I'm not saying one or the other is better (need sims for that of course...

Re: fire mage buff

Yep the proposed buff won't be nearly enough; 106% of a very small number is still a small number, and as Kalstrom said this won't change the spec's awful scaling with gear, especially crit which should be its main stat.

Re: [BfA] Arcane Mage Guide for Battle for Azeroth (8.0)

Adding to your post Dutch, I found the breakpoints are also there with IF (which is what I've been running because it's more reliable). It's not as big of a deal with IF over RoP, but it's still a (simmed) ~50-150 dps gain for my gear (340 ilvl with a pretty mediocre stat budget) to go for the break...

Re: [BfA] Arcane Mage Guide for Battle for Azeroth (8.0)

Do I understand well and I'm not supposed to cast arcane missiles during arcane power at all? Yep, that is also my understanding. AB does far more damage and AM is just a mana management tool right now, so it makes sense you'd want to cast the hard hitting spell only during your main cooldown. And ...

Re: How does everyone feel about 8.0 Arcane?

I've been running it in dungeons and so far it doesn't feel that bad (and the damage is insane). The rotation isn't exactly rocket science but as far as I'm concerned, up to a certain point (and I'll admit that Arcane is at the edge there) what matters to me is dealing with encounter mechanics and o...

Re: [Discussion] Patch 6.2 PTR - Build 19890

I think it's a bit early to say "stronger than Arcane on single target". We didn't really see that happen even in Highmaul when Frost was slightly ahead. Napkin math says that this buff will make us want to ignore FoF procs during Icy Veins, or if we use Unstable Magic and Comet Storm. This does no...
