Re: Basic "Learn from Your Mistakes" guide.

If you do not want to share your research publicly, there's no point. Also, saying simc is wrong when it suits you is at best strange. If you think there's something wrong with the sim, go ahead and share so that we can correct the implemention and then everyone benefits. Dismissing any result that'...

Re: Basic "Learn from Your Mistakes" guide.

I've cleaned up the conversation a bit, there's no point arguing like that without backing up your statements. To settle the debate, I simmed the differences. The T19 profile is using 905 shoulders and 905 legs, SFoS+Shard profiles are using leg offpiece (starting at 930) and Mag+Shard profiles are ...

Re: Guide to Thermally Voiding your Enemies in 7.2.5

I think you're wording it wrong, and missing one major point, mastery for frost is useless, the tier 19 that lets you play it properly is Shoulders/Pants. The main aspect of frost is dumping all mastery as possible because it has such little value. If you're not using ideal pieces of t19 or don't h...

Re: Guide to Thermally Voiding your Enemies in 7.2.5

No, T19 2pc is not overvalued. It looks overvalued to me. http://i.imgur.com/n54nfyb.jpg What is that even supposed to mean? What you say doesn't even follow from the image. By the way, the default Frost profile is using shard + mag + T19 shoulders/legs. Even with the base mythic ilvl (905), it bea...

Haste does nothing to Frozen Orb. It's 20 ticks over 9.5 sec, no matter what your haste is.

Re: [7.2.5] Frost Mage M+ Guide

I think you can do great DPS with the harjatan trinket since it increases IL proc with frozen orb and increases Blizzard and Frozen Orb's damage also you can still move with blink with this trinket and if you really need to move the trinket will keep stacking after you stop moving and the damage is...

Re: [7.2.5] Arcane Guide - Updated: July 19, 2017

You're misunderstanding the point Eshelon and others are making. Maybe an example will help clear it out. Suppose you have no crit, haste, mastery or versatility rating, that is, your stats are: 5% crit, 0% haste, 9.6% mastery and 0% versatility. Intellect doesn't really matter (since the relative d...

Re: Darkmoon Fairy Trinket

Someone closer to simcraft should confirm: Simcraft probably adds a certain value to your current stat weights to then re-evaluate what would happen if you increased your crit by X, given your current distribution of the other stats. If X puts you above the hardcap the new stat weight for crit will...

Re: [7.2.5] Frost Mage M+ Guide

I don't really use Soul of the Archmage, I run M+ with a pet so Sephuz's is just better. But yeah, I did try Frost Bomb recently (and I played with it almost exclusively roughly for the first half of Legion).

Re: [7.2.5] Frost Mage M+ Guide

You assume that AG gives you extra ticks compared to not having it if the mobs move, correct? The last part I don't follow, I'm afraid you have to give a few more details to make your explanation understandable. What happens if you get the same amount of orb cooldown reduction? I play with a DK tan...

Re: [7.2.5] Frost Mage M+ Guide

With T20 2pc, getting Frozen Orb resets is by far the most important factor on AoE. Even if AG only gains you one extra tick per target, the contribution to FO reset already makes it way ahead of Frost Bomb. You'd need to go down to about 2 ticks without AG (on average; out of 8) and 3 with AG for F...
