Re: [BfA] Arcane Mage Guide for 8.0 (BfA pre-patch) - TLDR version

Thanks so much for the guide, Dutchmagoz. I have a question about the order of the burn phase. Why should we cast Arcane Power before Presence of Mind? It seems that with the global cooldown, we should cast PoM first, so that we don't have two GCDs during AP. I usually try to setup my own burn phase...

Re: Arcane Mage Stats

It really depends on your other gear. I've been running soul+kilt almost exclusively for general purpose and single target fights, and every time I sim myself it is a bit different. It's usually been versatility, but sometimes it is crit or haste. Versatility is probably your safest bet, and mastery...

Re: [7.3+] Arcane Guide - Updated: December 3, 2017

I have more testing and experimenting to do, and I'm still a novice in these things, but Simcraft is showing me that Charged Up does a bit more damage than Resonance on single-target fights (1.174 million dps vs. 1.162 million). This is with 2pt20 and 2pt21, kilt and archmage. I only got this a few ...

Re: Arcane vs Chromie scenario

Not to be negative, but getting it at this point in talents is more about luck (i.e. getting the skips for Andorhal/Strat like you did) than it is about skill. That said, good job :D
It's fair to say that it needs both a lot of skill and luck at this point-- neither will get you there alone.

Re: Arcane weapon reset quest

The story seems like it is connected to something major, so I'm assuming the plan is to wrap this up in the future, perhaps in the main story line. This is the only 7.2 artifact quest I've done, but I was disappointed it wasn't tied to arcane magic or Aluneth in the slighted. I think Ret Paladins ha...

Re: 7.1.5 - Arcane Mage Guide - Updated: 01-25-2017

Updated my guide on the first page. Got some new links (to Nelfy's thread and video). Soon there should be a new trinket comparison sheet out, and when it pops I'll get that added too. Binkenstein dropped a new trinketlist, you might want to see this http://imgur.com/a/qZyCb" target="_blank It blow...

Re: Anyone working on Arcane Trinket sim comparisons?

Frosted's pinned guide at the top of the arcane forum contains 7.1.5 trinket rankings based on SimulationCraft.

Re: Mystic Kilt 7.1.5: Raids and Keystones

Hi there, im sorry to say that i disagree with most of what you said (of course, i could be 100% wrong). I actually love disagreement-- its how I learn! As I said in the original post, I only offered my guide as a basis for improvement. And you make a lot of great points that I'll try out. Especial...

Re: Nighthold Raid and Arcane Mage

I definitely think we are viable for most raids. There are plenty of windows that are ideal for burst damage and/or 5+ target AOE: two areas in which we shine. This is especially true for us kilt wearers with charged up. My guild got 7/10 N last night, and are raiding nightly through Friday with the...

Re: Mystic Kilt 7.1.5: Raids and Keystones

I don't suppose there is a breakdown of recommended talents based on instance out there? Are there any fights where IF is definitely superior? That's a good question. I find that the only thing I'm switching right now is CU for raids and some keystones, and Resonance for most keystones. I know ther...

Re: Mystic Kilt 7.1.5: Raids and Keystones

I'm not sure about your opener. I have kilt and bracers, but I'd still pre-pot at 2 and precast blast, then CU from 1->4.
That makes sense, although it looks like it only adds a single 1-charge Arcane Blast to the first moments of the fight while slightly delaying the rest of the rotation.

Re: Mystic Kilt 7.1.5: Raids and Keystones

Thanks, Exton! I wonder about the CU vs Resonance choice too. I agree it will be based on keystone level and affixes. My suspicion was that Charged Up would be better on lower-level keystones (getting about one additional barrage in per trash pack), but after trying it this morning in a few Maws 2 &...

Re: Mystic Kilt 7.1.5: Draft

Thanks for the feedback, Grazer. Yes, your point is completely clear, and interesting. I plan to do a lot of empirical testing this weekend and I'll definitely work that into the mix too.

Mystic Kilt 7.1.5: Raids and Keystones

This guide is my hypothesis on what the best Mystic Kilt rotation is, and I'll be changing it constantly as I work out the kinks. I don't believe this guide is anywhere close to the quality of Nelfy's, Rue's, Frosted's, or others. But there is a dearth of Mystic Kilt guides right now, so I'm offerin...
