Re: Artifical complexity

Frost is a special case, as it has not 1 but 2 procs instead. The artifical complexity again comes from the fact that Ice lance should always follow the Flurry Proc, essentially becoming a Fingers of Frost proc. Mathematically, if 2 occurrences always occur with one another, they can be calculated ...

Re: Artifical complexity

Fire has 2 spells that can contribute to procing Hot Streak, Fire Blast and Phoenix's Flames. The question begs itself, if 2 abilities do the exact same thing, why is there a need for both of them? Frost mage here. But you're clearly missing a major point about fire. Fire blast is castable while ca...

Re: T20 2 piece question

If you are far enough from target you can do ebonbolt>FO>flurry>lance and most likely not munch anything. FO travels rather slow as well.Needs really 40y distance tho. Try to avoid casting FO at large distances, because it will often reach it's 40 yd max range and disappear, even before it has deal...

Re: Rotation

Pre-pot > Precast Ebonbolt > IV at end of Ebonbolt > Flurry > IL > Orb Technically speaking, it's slightly more optimal for a human to do this opener as pre-pot > Precast Ebon > Flurry > IV asap > IL > Orb. It's better to do it this way, because both ebonbolt and flurry will still both benefit from...

Re: I don't need more Crit - says The SimC

If you said that simc have issue with correct weigh of crit after 31%, you have other proof besides fact "shatter cap = 33%"? Sorry about a delay in the response. To answer your question, the reason Simcraft devalues crit early is because of the method it uses to generate stat weights. Simcraft eva...

Re: I don't need more Crit - says The SimC

There is a known issue with Simcraft devaluing crit early because of how it generates stat weights (so it is still your best stat up until 13334 crit rating aka 33.34%). However, I think the most likely culprit for the low crit rate is Splitting Ice cleave. Ice lances that you shatter with flurry (w...

Re: Guide to Thermally Voiding your Enemies in 7.2.5

Ice Time used to proc sephuz even when it did not freeze the target. As in, Ice Time procced sephuz on bosses who are immune to freeze effects. If Ice Time freezes targets with the frost nova it releases, it should still proc sephuz.

Re: How to use 2p-T20 frost ? GS Build

frost mages, uniquely (unlike any other spec) have damage calculated when a spell lands rather than when a spellcast finishes. This was a change made during legion launch for frost mage specifically. This change means that your buffs and effects take effect on a spell when the spell lands. So if you...

Anyone here with their 4pc? I just got 4pc last night and was trying to figure out if I should be changing my opener or not.

Re: Glacial Spike - How to Ham 101

Current knowledge says we always want to shatter the ebonbolt. Ebonbolt does a lot of damage, and you need to recognize that the glacial eruption that follows it up can also shatter if the target stands still when shattering ebonbolt. It is possible that at some point shattering GS would be better d...

Re: Glacial spike vs TV talent funneling (gloves question)

The gloves are not worth using if you are not using TV. After being simmed using PTR values, it was found that even for nerfed TV, gloves are going to be bad. The legendary belt is quite good, so it'd be a good idea to use it. The legendary gloves certainly push a player towards TV, but if the PTR c...

Re: IceTime plus Sephuz combo

Your crit seems to be really low. You might want to take a look at your stat weights. He's probably just poorly itemized. Nighthold has very, very poor gearing options for frost mages. I've been forced all the way down to 22-23% crit, because high item level items have dropped for me, which are dps...

Re: Regarding Simulationcraft

In order to generate stat weights, Simcraft adds a flat amount of a stat to your character, and compares the results to your normal characters/sims. It does this for each stat, and then you can see the comparison between each stat. Simcraft shows crit being low value, because it raises you above cri...

Re: Guide to Thermally Voiding your Enemies in 7.2

So before the 7.2 trait Freezing rain, it's a dps loss to cast Blizzard on a single target. But if Frozen Orb is up and Blizzard is instant cast (minus GCD), isn't it better to cast Blizzard (only when Frozen Orb is up) to reduce the CD of the next Frozen Orb, or is it because of the low ticks on s...

Re: NH Builds

Depending on how much of your damage is frostbolt, UM gets stronger. But, I personally recommend to just always run AG unless you specifically need that little bit of ST damage. UM on ST gives you an average of a 12.5% increase to your frostbolt damage. Most TV builds have frostbolt as their 3rd dam...

Re: Question about the new artifact path

Single Target-wise, It's technically best to get old traits + OL and ignore freezing rain/glacial eruption, because freezing rain provides no benefit in ST, even though glacial eruption is the strongest single trait option (Basically, it's not worth 2 points) This is what sims show. However, in real...

Looking through a few different fights, there are 2 big things that stand out to me. 1) Your ice lance damage (compared to other mages) is incredibly low.
