Yes, well. There's the problem. Noxxic has a history of saying a lot of things that shouldn't really be listened to.
Oh I completely agree, I don't care for their guides or info, but many others do for some reason. I also don't know what type of voodoo info they put in the sims but whatever they did has frost>arc>fire for single target. They are all very close but that was how it broke down.
Beware of the man who works hard to learn something, learns it, and finds himself no wiser than before... He is full of murderous resentment of people who are ignorant without having come by their ignorance the hard way. -Kurt Vonnegut, "Cat's Cradle"
Not gonna whine about mages being overpowered, but an increase in dps of more than 30k is not good/fair/reasonable...
I presume you are a mage, so you must know that anyone who claims they have increased their dps by 30k overnight, without gear, only from combustion is talking BS.
It's a moderate buff, is it going to be enough to justify a nerf, we will see later when we acquire more gear and see how scaling goes. Otherwise there is some evidence from raidbots for example (http://raidbots.com/dpsbot/Overall_D...14/60/default/), I wouldn't call it fact of course, but as it is now Fire is leading the pack, but the margin is not huge.
