Re: Fire Trinket Discussion Megathread

You can effectively have 9+ coins - save 6, after reset spend 3, buy 3 again at vendor, and fish for mission.
How does one fish for a mission?

Re: Arcane mage guide for raiding by Dutchmagoz! [6.2 update

I already updated the trinket section of the arcane SimC thread. I don't care much about racials (their influence is trivial), so I haven't bothered looking into it. Don't want to make a new thread about it, but i need to understand if im breaking the haste cap and if so, by how much This occurs du...

Re: Hellfire Citadel Mage Tips

Barrages only target healers. If your raid positions with that in mind then you never have to deal with them coming your way at all.
Is that true? Crazy that I never heard that. So you can just position healers in the middle with range to either side, huh?

What was the fight? If it is patchwork, there is no movement, so the talent row is irrelevant.

Re: Fire Mages are alive again

Crit is still the engine that drives fire's damage. Pyroblast and ignite outside of combustion windows is still vital, and the Phoenix will proc more regularly with more pyro casts. Crit is essential way beyond the relatively low Sandman's "soft cap".

Re: Updated undead racial - touch of the grave

Seems like a lot of racials will have changed. Blood Elves get slightly more mana for arcane with a lower CD on Arcane Torrent, not even sure if goblins use rocket barrage, but it got a reduced CD as well.

Re: 7.0 Speculation Thread

I found it interesting in the Felo'melorn lore blurb on the Legion site that they specifically mentioned it being able to deflect Frostmourne's blows... Unsubstantiated melee spec hype? :P Well apparently, the lore is that it was shattered by Frostmourne and Kael'thas reforged it. He bragged about ...

Re: Fire July 20 Hotfixes

worst try ive seen in a long time to make a specc viable again. It's pretty obvious these changes were to solidify fire's place on multi target fights. With pof, arcane was encroaching on that territory. The single target buff seems like a byproduct that still won't push it above either of the othe...

Re: Anyone else feel that UM PC is weaker ingame than in sim

You need to post logs. Telling people you believe you play near flawlessly is not going to help your case. If you want to post anecdotal fluff, this may not be the place to do it. Post logs so we can dissect what you are doing, what UM damage you should expect with what you are doing, and what you a...

Re: State of the Specs (June 29, pre-Mythic HFC)

What? No, frost is competitive at around 700 item level. As you gear up in current HEROIC and mythic gear, arcane will separate from frost on single target. Once you have Prophesy of Fear, it out paces frost on aoe as well. Frost has a niche for cleave encounters, but otherwise arcane will be superi...

Re: Haste>MS as soon as T18 2PC or no?

I may be nitpicking, but in the future, you may want to refer to mastery as either mastery, or MA for short. MS is generally accepted as the abbreviated form of multistrike.

Re: [Discussion] Patch 6.2 PTR

That would be broken and amazing. Or something like: Casting Inferno Blast doubles the current value of Ignite for 2 seconds. That could help with single target, but would break aoe and cleave.

Re: Arcane mage guide for raiding by Dutchmagoz! [6.1 update

When it comes to weapons and trinkets, it's almost always better to go for item level. The chunk of spellpower from weapons, and the weight given to proc power on trinkets will outweigh 50 secondary stats almost every time.

Re: Fire Talent Comparisons, Stat Weights, Racials, Trinkets

We talked about this in irc for a while. You are gonna have to make the best of it. If you pop crystal with pyro+heating up+trinkets and whatnot, fireball and pyro don't crit, you still do your double IB and take what you get. You risk wasting crystal if you try to rebuild ignite in the short time i...
