Recent Spambot Activity

The staff of Altered Time have been made aware of increased spambot activity as of late. :evil: As our current registration system uses a spambot prevention feature based on World of Warcraft and Mage Q&A, we can only conclude that even the bots are somehow getting better at WoW and Mages. :lol: As ...

There used to be one called "Son of a Lich", but that was closed down earlier this year I think.

Re: A word to Blizzard

As many posters have mentioned, petitions to Blizzard are out of place in this forum. You'd have better luck bringing your complaints to battle.net.

Re: Anyone else feel like quitting after quickening removal?

This thread is going nowhere as a whine thread. I will lock it now, and as a moderator, I regret not taking action earlier.

Re: 7.1.5 PTR Notes

Going to clean this thread up a bit to remove some low quality posts. We don't need another whine thread. Pretty clear fire will need a retuning after this. Yep. But I don't think we've seen all of the nerfs yet, because they still haven't fixed crit value as they mentioned in the interview. We'll p...

Re: Flamestriking comparisons between 7.1,7.0 on 5,7,10 targ

You can't really run sims for short durations like that. At those time ranges, formulation seems like a better approach to analyze the comparison. Another option is to adjust the value of the two based on Ignite damage. Pyroblast has no AoE value outside of the spreaded Ignite, so you can just remov...

Re: Arcane 7.1 Simulations

Before patch my stat priority were more or less same with yours even though I had the pants. I don't understand what have changed. In my opinion, priority of mastery should be increased with increased mana costs. This is a common misconception, and reminds us why opinions and feelings often don't a...

Re: Raiding in 7.1: Living Bomb or Unstable Magic?

Seeing as the original poster clarified he was asking whether LB or UM was better on Ursoc, and that this question has been unambiguously answered (LB isn't used on ST, UM gives a benefit), I see no reason to keep this thread open and get uglier than it already is. Sorry it took this long to deal w...

Re: PTR Build 22864 - Arcane adjustments

Orb has never been competitive for single target, but was a very strong option for AOE fights. It was used on progression on several bosses (Imperator, and even world first Archimonde), before Nithramus' synergy with Prismatic Crystal muscled it out. The biggest nerf it received was when all AM proc...

Re: higher burst opener "trick"

Locked by Causese's request since Arcane Charges reset on pull of raid bosses, similar to all other secondary resources.

Can still be used on dungeon bosses, but not raid bosses.

Re: higher burst opener "trick"

This seems like an oversight from the devs. Arcane Orb's 15 second CD used to coincide with the 15 second duration of the Arcane Charge debuff, which meant it would fall off right as AO finishes the CD. With the change to being a resource, they seem to have forgotten about making Arcane Orb unable t...

Re: PTR Build 22864 - Arcane adjustments

Oh, and some napkin math. I'm quite sure they messed up the coefficients here and ended with a net nerf for us. AB/AM contribute to ~60% of overall single target damage, which means the buff is a maximum ~6% gain before considering any mana cost hikes. With the mana cost hike, the mana cost of Arcan...

Re: PTR Build 22864 - Arcane adjustments

Seems like there's a whole lot of confusion behind why they're making this mana cost change, so I'm cross posting this from a reply I made on the the MMO-C Arcane thread. With the latest Savant hotfix and current Mastery stacking, it is possible to reach the 65-70% levels of Mastery. This converts t...

Re: Why is Supernova the go to for single target?

Without looking at whatever spreadsheet you're working on, it's hard to comment on what leads to your conclusion of Nether Tempest being a single target DPS loss. That said, I'm pretty sure that isn't the case. Going back to the original topic though, you're trying to compare Supernova against the D...
