I had noticed that the top mage on my realm who is a frost mage was using a haste heavy gemming and I decided to change my gemming around and do some sims to see why he had done this.
Just to clarify what I mean by haste heavy gemming: Red Sockets=Reckless Vermilion Onyx, Yellow Sockets=Quick Sun's Radiance, Blue Sockets=Lightning Wild Jade
The results say that in a patchwerk fight the haste heavy gemming is only 279 dps behind and in a helter skelter fight the haste heavy gemming is 1495 dps ahead.
Now I know because these sims are in my gear they aren't the same for everyone so I would like to know if anyone else has had similar results? I'm trying to work out if my sims are right and also if the standard intellect frost gemming is actually right.
