Re: [Fire] [7.3] Talent Kindling for Tier 21?

Re: [Fire] Question on Sassz'ine logs

This is a very interesting log. In addition to what Syana said, I believe there are a few more curiosities involved. Even though your fight times are somewhat comparable, you crit a lot more than he does (72,4% vs. 51,3%). However, he does get a total of seven more pyroblasts off, which is a lot. He...

Re: General M+ Tips and Tricks, by Herux and Ezekielyo

We could add insights regarding routes and positioning. For example, after clearing the left side in CoS you can transfer to the right side behind the boss, run up the ramp and jump down from the top. That way you can clear the right side safely starting from the rear end and avoid the dangerous imp...

Re: Fire and Frost

This is a very good question that doesn't seem to have a clear answer at the moment. From what I've heard and seen in logs (don't have it myself yet) the Spectral Thurible from Desolate Host is apparently doing some pretty crazy numbers. Although it has versatility on it, the damage from the proc se...

Re: Frozen Orb

The same resoning applies if you're targeting a large group that is spread out. To avoid the orb stopping at the first mob on the outside sometimes you want to blink in the middle and hand-deliver it where you need it.

What's the best M+ Setup(s)?

Hey everyone, Since making the switch back to Fire in M+ I have been wondering about which setups to run. I spent about two weeks of reading guides, swapping around gear, simming, running dungeons and then doing the same all over again. Still, I feel a bit lost. Whereas the stat and talent compositi...

Re: Help me be a better Frost Mage for my Guild!

What he means is to use a Flurry right after a Frostbolt. The Flurry travels faster, will hit before the Frostbolt, apply its debuff and will make the Frostbolt crit. Whenever you get a Brain Freeze Proc you want to use the combination Frostbolt-Flurry-Ice Lance. You should also Flurry immediately a...

Re: Darkmoon Fairy Trinket

Someone closer to simcraft should confirm: Simcraft probably adds a certain value to your current stat weights to then re-evaluate what would happen if you increased your crit by X, given your current distribution of the other stats. If X puts you above the hardcap the new stat weight for crit will ...

Re: Long post - need advice and giving advice

Interesting. • Shimmerlance – how is this? Risky. Sometimes worth it, definitely fun. Try to keep one stack of shimmer at all times. Sometimes you can use it to usefully reposition as well. Don't do it if you know you'll need the mobility soon. Definitely don't do it on KJ, double blink has saved my...

Re: Darkmoon Fairy Trinket

That versatility stat stick is actually not that bad. If you can reach the crit cap otherwise it's a decent option.

I wouldn't invest in the darkmoon trinket, you'll get lucky soon.

I'm afraid at this point I have to ask - have you both actually playtested the gear/talent combination I am talking about here?

Re: [7.2.5] Frost Mage M+ Guide

You assume that AG gives you extra ticks compared to not having it if the mobs move, correct? The last part I don't follow, I'm afraid you have to give a few more details to make your explanation understandable. What happens if you get the same amount of orb cooldown reduction? I play with a DK tank...

Re: [7.2.5] Frost Mage M+ Guide

I believe I added your answer in my revision of the previous post. Since we don't disagree about simulated DPS it would be great to get some more feedback from live-testing. I cannot fully rule out that the increase in my overall DPS is due to external factors, which is why I posted here in the firs...

Re: [7.2.5] Frost Mage M+ Guide

Guys, please. I must have accidentally deleted a sentence in my editing process that outlined the impact of the radius reduction, for which I'm sorry. However, there isn't really one. If your tank stacks well the reduced radius is still plenty to hit the full groups, except that you have to place it...

Re: [7.2.5] Frost Mage M+ Guide

Those are some interesting results. If you don't mind, could you see what happens if you assume a fight length of 30-60 seconds, without IV and TW? I assume this is a case of sim vs. reality. The issue here might be that Blizzard gains DPS value from its ability to reset the orb while Frost Bomb doe...
