I still plan to test it like I said earlier, but for theorycrafting purposes, I'd like to have the coefficient (I also requested it from GC, but by that point, he was already done with Twitter )
Well then. The hell happened to restarts happening at like 6 AM anyway?
http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/8690559168 ... Fucking DST.
DISREGARD PREVIOUS VERSION OF THIS POST, I CAN'T TIME THIS TIRED.
Long story short: fuck daylight savings. I know what I'm talking about, it makes sense in my head. I'm saying it used to be 6 AM, now it's 7 and I'm blaming it on DST.
I'm going to bed. When I can't even type logically, it's time. Have fun testing it after restarts.

Sinister Primal Diamond should now correctly have different activation rates depending on the class and specialization. In addition, activation rate for Fire Mages has been increased.
Hmmmmm... maybe there is hope after all
Twin Consorts also got their Cosmic Barrage nerfed. Woot.
I'll be doing a few tests... But not just yet. Later. Expect shit to pop up from me sometime tonight (as I need a nap at some point for waking up too early )
Edit: Actually, fuck that. I'm gonna do the 20m+ scorch test now.
Here's two tests
Test 1: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/a...pvw/details/0/
Test 1 was done just purely using Scorch for 10m.
Test 2: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/j...6mc/details/0/
Test 2 was a more realistic test, doing a standard rotation for about 6m.
Both tests used Frost Armor instead of Molten to over-make up for the lost raid buff haste (due to RPPM scaling with Haste), in addition to using IW over Invo (just to be safe).
- On Test 2, not a single one of the THREE proccs lined up with Combustion, even the pull.
- Test 1's procc uptime is passable. Test 2's was PATHETICALLY low, even lower than pre-"buff" hotfix. Might have been a bad RNG, but I thought they added bad-streak protection. Even with horrible RNG, it shouldn't be worse than pre-buff.
--- I plan to do another test on Test 2 later to make sure it was just bad RNG
- That low proccs on Test 2 worries me, but those high(er) proccs on Test 1 make me a bit hopeful. Still though, 15% is nothing to cheer about as it's still pretty low, but at the very least, it's better than before.

Looks like on the second one you had 3 procs for 20.6 seconds up-time which means you got bad luck with RNG and AT. It will happen and you cant really do anything but punch the monitor. If you had the full 30 seconds it raises the up-time to 8%
IMO looks like we should be in the ~15-20% range for up-time going off the average of the two. Also about lining up with combustion; sure its frustrating when it doesn't proc on the pull but after that you will have to be very lucky for it to proc and have good combustion conditions and the CD be up. It's more of a bonus that expectation.
Just did Durumu 10m nHC.... only 2 tries (one silly wipe length: 7:34) and kill with 6:22 and I had in both fights an uptime with 25.1% and 25.9%... could be luck, but if not..it's nice like before the fix
PS: I'm EU.. dunno if there was a restart today and I can't look if the mogu-thing changed.

The restarts have not happened in EU yet so 25% is the same as what we were seeing before the restarts in the US.
Just so we can all get on the same page here, this gem was NOT buffed for fire after these restarts.... It's even mentioned in the post that the coefficients were wrong before and have now been put right with a change to Firs. 25% uptime is a coefficient of about 1, fire was supposed to be .033 or something like that, this 'fix' would of put us back to that meaning an uptime of 8% but blizz finally realised that is fucking retarded and have upped it to ~0.7 meaning we should have an uptime of 16-17%, this fix is an overall nerf to the gem from what we have seen since it went live but a buff to what it was supposed to be...
Typical it happens when I'm one secret away from the bloody Gem :/
gem was hotfixed on US and EU few days ago. it went from 1 to 0.3. now they changed it for fire only.
got 5 procs in 2min. it is most certainly fixed on EU.
2nd try: 10 procs over 480s without raidhaste.
3rd try: 17 procs over 480s without raidhaste.
seems more like the old 1 to me
