    [Mage] What is FotM build after today's hotfix?

    I'm wondering is it either frost or arcane.

  2. #2
    Both should be close to each other, arcane might be slightly ahead.

    Why do you automatically exclude fire? Why couldn't it be still fire? They try to adjust the numbers so that all specs and classes are on par. Nobody said that fire has to be lower than the other specs now just because arcane is untouched and frost buffed.

    At lvl 90:

    Frost >= Arcane > Fire

    At lvl 100:

    Frost >> Arcane >>>>>>>>> Fire

    You can check it in the last simcrafts. (Blizzard balance OP... ¬¬)

    I honestly think as fire you can beat the other 2 specs at 90 atm. At this high level of crit, it's hard to beat fire even with the 20% nerf

    All three should be about the same now.....at least that was the intention.

    Gonna have to agree. When I clicked "incorrect" to see the simcraft proof nothing happened, you know better than that berl.

    I just tested fire, whereas I did 17.9k on a dummy pre-hotfix I am doing 14.3k now, so it's not that much of a nerf.

    Well, so you are doing a 20% less of your pre-hotfix damage. I think is a considerable nerf.

    haven't messed with frost almost at all since patch, because i honestly like arcane enough to hope it's ahead.

    Sigh I need to give arguments? damn it.

    Fire was OP. It received a nerf
    Arcane was in a good place. remained unchanged
    Frost was shit. It received at buff.

    Frost was overbuffed and on the "latest Simcrafts" it's abit too far ahead.
    Arcane suffers by movement. Fire either needs ton of Crit or t17 4set.

    Fire and Arcane are pretty close. Frost just got abit too far ahead, but it will be tuned back down. Fire does bollocks damage on AoE. Like wauw.

    And my mind really needs to think cohesively.

    That's always the intention, but it's never the reality, Frost and Hunters got way overbuffed once again.

    Is this hotfix live on EU realms? i've been testing on the dummies and I can't really feel a significant difference between yesterday and today, just a very, very slight one (maybe 1-2k dps), however I really doubt that this is legit, based on the numbers I read in the notes.

    2k dps is a lot if you have been doing like 10-12k before.

    Simcraft has the 3 mage specs at the top. Frost > Arcane > Fire for now it seems.

    In fact, some might say it's a 20% nerf!

  20. #20
    I was doing like 19-21k yesterday, and I still do 18-20k today which does not exactly reflect a 20% nerf, does it?
