Re: Emerald Nightmare Tips & Tricks

Boss: Nythendra (Mythic) Spec: All Tip: Ice Block does not prevent you from gaining, and will not clear, stacks of Infested! What this means is: a) you can use Ice Block to safely gain a lot of Infested stacks shortly before Infested Mind is cast if you're trying to force it out, or b) you can accid...

Re: Trinket Help

The reason why this has not been mentioned in any lists is because the Mythic dungeons are only a recent thing. Patch 6.2 I believe. When the lists where done, this trinket was only available in HC version and so was weaker than the items available in raids. When the mythic version of the trinket be...

Re: Ice Nova/Supernova WeakAura

Oh, sorry. I completely missed that.

Just copy that one and then change the trigger to Ice Nova and set the stack count to >= 1 and then change the colour / location.

That isn't a weak Aura. That is a tool bar addon such an OmniCC which is doing that for you.

Re: That Conserve-Phase Arcane-Charge-x4 Arcane Blast ..

Yes, I have done Kormrok and assuming your guild does the Green > Red > Purple strat there is a position you can stand on for the pull which will mean that the boss is in range when he first jumps into the green pool and with double blink you can still get to just about any where in the room in time...

Re: Arcane question

1.) Yes. PC ASAP. This gives you more chance to get MoD debuff on PC (instead of the boss) but also means your Crystal is up while the ring buff is active.

2.) Yes.

Re: Has anyone simmed a Patchwerk case of "Ring on CD" + Arc

Wait for the ring. It doesn't matter so much if you have just got the ring but as the ring gets upgraded each week, the difference gets stronger and stronger in favour of waiting for the ring.

Re: That Conserve-Phase Arcane-Charge-x4 Arcane Blast ..

I don't think you get what I said. It was about special targets that must be killed for the tradeoff of lower overall DPS. It wasn't about optimal total DPS. How is this different? If you have a priority target that needs to be burned down ASAP but you are in your conserve phase then that is your r...

Re: UI re-build

This looks like the one Soggs posted a while back but slightly modified to make is smaller / square. This is one that I built on (from Soggs' original post) which has some additional sound queues in it (e.g. when you hit 3 x AM or you are using RoP but not standing in it). You will need to play arou...

Re: That Conserve-Phase Arcane-Charge-x4 Arcane Blast ..

You could use AM under 4 stacks if mana is low but that's a bit unorthodox since that's not supposed to happen on patchwerk simulations. It assumes perfection. But in a real scenario you may choose to burn a target slightly faster etc. Perfection is what we are aiming for (patch work or otherwise) ...

Re: New-ish Character, not sure what spec to use.

Don't worry about gear. Play the spec you like the most. Yes, gear does matter but perfecting your rotation is more important. You have already said you need to make improvements in that area so start with the spec that you enjoy the most and go from there. You will learn faster if you enjoy it more...

Re: 7.0 New Spell Suggestions

In summary, if it is an ability you don't like, it has to go. If you do like it, it should be baseline. I disagree with that thinking. The advantage of this talent system is you get to pick abilities based on the fight you are doing rather than having cookie cutter talent trees that buffed or shorte...

Re: Breaktheice's WoD Frost Mage Guide (updated for 6.2)

I'd also be curious on Sorcrethar to know how damage-splitting abilities like PC handle the boss being damage immune. If you put the crystal down when the Dominator is out, and the boss is immune, does the split damage from PC just not count an immune boss as a target, and put all its damage on any...

Re: Hellfire Citadel Mage Tips

I avoided having a line of "Recommended spec: ..." because like DPS charts, people tend to follow them literally and all of a sudden "recommended" becomes "compulsory". By leaving it as is, it allows people to play what ever spec they want and pick up tips from other players playing that spec. There...

You will need Simulation Craft for this.
