Re: WoWClassic Mage Section?

I've added a classic subforum: https://www.altered-time.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=27 There are currently no spec subforums, since to me, those seem rather useless for classic since all specs can use spells from all 3 schools, and basically all popular setups are a combination of multiple talent tree...

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

Hi Dutchmagoz! Just wanted to start off by saying all your guides are great and have definitely helped me with my mage alt. Our main mythic raid has been lacking mages recently (zero for the past two), and I was thinking if I should maybe gear my alt and just use it as my main. Was hoping to ask a ...

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

Cast Arcane Barrage if you have 4 Arcane Charges and you have less than 60% Mana (80% Mana if you would cap on Rune of Power charges before Arcane Power is ready) or you have 4 Arcane Charges and there are 3 or more targets. Can someone ELI5 this to me, please? I don't understand why does the RoP p...

Anyone know if the sim has been updated to reflect the brainstorm nerf?
It has. Raidbots nightly version is uptodate with it as well.

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

Hi. If i use raidbots to sim my dps, does it automatically change to the brainstorm rotation if i have 2 or more brainstorm traits equipped? If not, how can i tell it to use the brainstorm rotation? Asking because i have a piece of 340 shoulders with brainstorm (to get 2 brainstorms), or 355 should...

Re: Charged Up Raid Bug

Has anyone else noticed this issue or put in a bug report? Why does charged up go away when a boss is pulled? So frustrating I can't even being to describe it. I think it is tied to the time warp reset or something. The bug existed on beta was fixed and is now back. Please report it. This is not a ...

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

TLTeo answered the questions already, so I'll only explain a bit further on why haste suddenly spikes and drops in value: There are haste breakpoints which allow you to fit in additional Arcane Blasts during Arcane Power. These breakpoints are important when running Rune of Power + Overpowered, beca...

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

Good evening, I just rerolled into a Iron dwarf and I was wondering if my new racial ability changes my rotation (in terms of presence of mind).. It says that we cast POM at the end of arcane power but if i use the iron dwarf racial at the beginning w/ all my other cooldowns, does that change anyth...

Re: Enchants to use for Arcane Weapon

Hey quick question. What weapon enchant are Arcane Mages using? I was thinking about Deadly Navigation.

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

Dutch I have been benefiting from your clear and accurate guides for years. Thank you. I have three questions. 1. Why use Presence of Mind after using Arcane Power? Wouldn’t it be a dps increase to spend the global outside the arcane power window, and go into it with two Instant ABs qued up? 2. Doe...

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

Helo, thanks for this guide. I have a question about caps: Crit, haste and mastery? How much is the ideal? There are no caps for Arcane Mages for any of those stats. The best way to figure out your optimal set of gear is via https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/topgear. If you want to know your own pers...

Re: Weapon

There is no functional difference between a staff or 1h+offhand.

An equal item level 1h+offhand will be exactly equal to a staff in terms of intellect and amount of secondary stats.

So, just pick the setup with best stats. (assuming equal item level). Best way is to just sim top gear on raidbots.

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

When Arcane Power comes back up during the Arcane Pressure "execute phase" , does that alter the rotation at all?
Nope. You still cast arcane barrage after reaching 4 Arcane Charges during Arcane Power.

Re: Secondary stats, shatter cap

You are not expected to reach the shatter cap any time soon, so this low crit is completely fine!
