Re: Lady Vashj's grasp losing value in 7.2.5?

I can only see gloves remaining strong if the extension of IV duration also includes the dps buff you now only get in the first 20 seconds. But since that's all pure speculation at this point it's probably better to sit back and enjoy the current playstyle while it's still there. As long as we still...

Re: [Frost] Question about legendaries

I assume you ask this in the context of raiding, not M+. There are arguments for all three combinations. Bracers and Gloves are the best choice if you know that you won't get more than one Time Warp during a fight, no contest. Gloves and Shard is a solid combination when you can use Time Warp on pul...

Re: Double Ice Lancing and world ms/input tolerance

Maybe the reason why they haven't done it yet is that it would force other adjustments? Without the double ice lance and in the absence of additional tuning, Frost DPS would surely plummet. I have to admit though, I really like the mechanic. It's fun and has a solid balance between risk and reward. ...

Re: Frost AoE

So you're saying you average about 2 million DPS throughout a full M+ Dungeon? Could you please provide a video backing up those numbers?

I'd really like to learn how to do that much damage consistently.

Re: IceTime plus Sephuz combo

I think what he was referring to was whether or not the simulations were done by only exchanging one legendary per simulation. To draw meaningful conclusions you'd have to simulate all combinations of two legendaries each, adjusting for optimal gear around their stat values. Not an easy task to do, ...

Re: All-time Favorite PC Game

My first blind Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition playthrough, not having played any of the Souls games before. Beating the Twin Gargoyles for the first time, ringing that bell.

Re: [7.2] Frost Talents, Trinkets, Racials, Stats, Legendary

Cool find, also unbelievably lucky. Outside of handing in a bazillion Nethershards there's no way to farm this. 3% drop rate on a boss that's part of a random rotation, on top of which the item would have to TF. You basically just won the lottery. It's probably BiS for Ray builds because so much of ...

Re: 908 Frost mage doing pathetic damage

You're not doing the "Krosus dance" :D Krosus' hitbox is a little weird, making it a lot harder to hit the double Ice Lances and shatter your Frostbolts. Overall, you only managed to achieve 70.5% crit on your Ice Lances, which is not only very low, but also costing you a lot of IV uptime. Essential...

Re: IceTime plus Sephuz combo

Your analysis of the replay is spot on. Your conclusion isn't. Furthermore, I don't think disregarding untested potential for optimization is a healthy attitude towards progression to begin with. I doubt many people have seriously tried this combination for progress. I'll do just that and report bac...

Re: Looking for some advice after switching from fire to fro

Congratulations for getting the Gloves. It was pointed out elsewhere around here that simcraft becomes inaccurate around the shatter cap. I was confused by the same issue, because while you're not over it yet, you already get the reduced stat weight. Simcraft seems to add a certain amount if crit to...

Re: Blizzard on single target?

Zulandia, not even for the reduced frozen orb cooldown? I find it a lot easier to reach the second orb if I cast two instant blizzards while frozen orb is up. I don't have the legendary gloves.

Re: Reviving the Ray

I have the shoulders as well and actually tried playing around it. While it is possible, you're using two legendary slots for an interaction that is only worth one. The shoulders need a major overhaul to be of any use (outside of the frost mage challenge, where they are insanely strong). Furthermore...

This is what I was referring to - Ray + Procs = Deathray: https://www.altered-time.com/forum/view ... f=5&t=4272

Hey there, I tinkered a little bit with a ray build, which is performing nicely in M+ and does a hell of a lot of ST burst damage. I'm using Nightwell Arcanum, Sephuz, WitD (Whispers in the Dark, a Trinket from Gul'Dan) and a 922 ilvl weapon. Gear stats are 48K int, 32%/32%/28%/5% at ilvl 910. Key t...
