Is that the right list? And it is based on alphabetical order, so Im not sure if its correct or not aha..
One more question:
Loshan (ilvl496 and 500 intellect gem) vs Regail (ilvl503 and normal gem), which one is better for Frost Mage?
can you search the answers before asking? In can be found easily in these forum ...
Hi Frost Mages,
I'm working on my own guide (because I'm bored and have just switched to it on my Mage) but as it won't be ready for a few weeks I figured I should come and post this.
Crit "Cap" formula: 13254.4 - (0.24864 * Int) = Required Crit Rating
This is assuming a 5% stats buff. Without it the Int multiplier is 0.23681 (0.24864 is 1.05 times 0.23681 btw).
There's no point in a "calculator" per se, nor a graph because it's a static formula the whole way.
Have fun with that,
Is that before or after 5% crit buff and Molten Armor?
Is there even any time you would stack crit as frost?
I know for pve there's no reason and wether we stack it in 5.2 after a certain amount of haste remains to be determined.
No idea about pvp as I've seen people say you don't stack crit anymore.
I am faced with a dilemma right now. So I got 4pc tier bonus, where 3 of them come from LFR. My options is to run with those 4pc or run with 2pc tier and two other pieces of gear level 496. I have tried to sim it and ask mr robot's opinion, and it seems that the difference is negligible (about 0.4% increase in score/performance). Is this something that sounds about right? Right now I am keeping the 2pc + two setup because I am used to the longer IV CD. Any opinions?
Glyph of Frostfire bolt + FFb spam (with Frostbolt now and then to keep debuff up) during timewarp and icy veins? Yes/no/maybe/pass the pipe?
Whatever FFB is cast with or without BL/hero, it always less interesting than Frostbolt, even without the glyph. It's only interesting with PoM maybe.
If you manage your cds right you should be using procs for nearly all of alter time. If frozen orb rng is kind you can use procs for the entire duration but in reality you usually have to cast frostbolt once or twice as a filler.
I quite often get the frostbolt debuff down to 2-3 seconds left because I'm so busy casting procs.
