Re: Judge Me! Logs link inside.

I took a quick look at the mythic taloc fight. Your DPS was 82nd percentile for you ilvl, so you're not doing terrible. I might have missed it, but it didn't look like you used a pre-pot or a pot during lust. That should help some. I'm not good enough to help you into the 95th+ percentile, so I'd ju...

Re: Can't benefit from Shard due to late BL, how do I sim for this

you just have to remove time warp from the actions list (this is assuming you're downloading simc and running it locally). after you import your character, if you scroll down, you can find the actions list. there will be a line like actions+=/time_warp,if=buff.bloodlust.down&(buff.exhaustion.down|eq...

Re: Maxing dps (Frost)

Are you queuing your spells in the 400ms window just before a cast ends? Um... :? Can you elaborate? :?: I use Quartz that shows me the latency in the castbar. So I'm trying to cast my spells as early as possible (sometimes I can start casting even before the Quartz timer ends... so much for accura...

Re: Maxing dps (Frost)

Downtime 27.07% Cancelled Casts 6.35% What does that mean? I don't cancel casts unless I have to (like when the green strips come) and I cast continuously. So how is my downtime nearly third of the fight? O.o That does seem like a lot of down time. Are you queuing your spells in the 400ms window ju...

Re: Maxing dps (Frost)

I took a quick look at your logs and aside from not being great at shattering ebonbolt (like 50-75% of the time) and not using a second potion (you don't seem to pre-pot), nothing glaring sticks out. you might want to throw all your fights into wow analyzer to check out your casting downtime, though...

Re: Glacial Spike Simcraft APL

I was curious, so I figured I'd give the APL a go.

Re: subtilities between Kindling/Meteor and FP/UM??

I'm not an expert and I've only been pugging lately, so take my thoughts with a grain of salt. In my experience, the adds on Harj tend to be pretty spread out and don't have a ton of health. In contrast, the adds on Mistress tend to stay grouped up and have a decent amount of health. Meteor/UM are y...

Re: Shattering glacial spike: timing flurry

personally, I have to try and queue flurry as soon as possible. If I waited until my cast bar was almost finished, I wasn't consistently getting GS crits.

Re: Glacial Spike - How to Ham 101

Atm the APL will always shatter ebonbolt. That trinket is okay but nothing special, sure it can give you some crazy stuff like that but it's proc rate is horrid. It can get you some silly stuff like that I suppose but nothing worth investing time for. Thanks for weighing in. Totally agree that it's...

Re: Glacial Spike - How to Ham 101

Razz, quick question on trinket since it is not there at the 1st page. What do you think of Stormsinger Fulmination Charge? I have 905 one with socket and seems that the proc of mastery can be quite crazy. (unfortunately I don't have whisper 910, only 900; hence, this question). Let me know your th...

Hey all, Going to be updating the guide again to bring it up to speed for the changes coming. Hopefully anyone who gave GS a try this patch got some help from the discussion here. With GS going back to the top of the meters where it belongs I thought it deserves some nice updates. So hang tight whi...

@Daakal. So, the way I sim GS is to pull the action priority list from the simcraft import on the first page of this thread and use it on my imported character. In steps, use the nightly simcraft build and you 1. import your character as normal 2. Delete the actions list, but keep the character inf...

Re: Glacial Spike - How to Ham 101

if you link your armory there's a good chance someone will sim you and let you know if they're getting the same results. I wouldn't mind doing it, though it might take a day or two for me to see the comment. Generally, using the daily builds is best.

Re: MAGE RACE

you're doing it wrong.

but if that doesn't work for you check the fire/frost/arcane forums and at the top there's a thread with race/talent/stats comparisons. it's a really small difference. go with whatever race is your favorite.

Re: Krosus log comparison

also remember that Krosus is more of a mechanics fight. maybe the other mage just picks the nearest swirl and soaks the add there, while you shimmer to the back of the bridge to help soak the harder to get adds. his damage is gonna look much better because he can stay on the boss the whole time, whi...

Re: Flame patch best in Nighthold?

I haven't played with flamepatch much, but the gist is you drop flamestrikes instead of pyroblasts when you know the boss isn't going to move for 8s. if you think the tanks are going to move the boss, like on botanist, you cast pyroblast instead. perhaps someone with a bit more knowledge can weigh i...
