So I'm having 2-Set from old tier (Shoulders + Chest both 496). And I also have 2-set from the new tier 15 - Hands(LFR) and Leggings(normal). Do you think that it's worth for me to break the old 2-set bonus and have these 3 items instead -> http://www.wowhead.com/item=95183 , http://www.wowhead.com/item=94733 , http://www.wowhead.com/item=94752 . All 3 items give massive crit and int bonuses aka the itemization is quite nice. But the 2-p from t14 is also insanely good so I'm having this dilemma now. What would you recommend?
I downloaded Rawr with the hope i could sim my char but it seems not to be updated for 5.2. On a dummy i did like 10.30 mil dmg with the old two sets and my Pyroblast dmg was 3.82mil for 66 pyros. I did 10.30 mil dmg with my new items (aka shoulders + chest) and with 65 pyros the Pyroblast dmg was 3.44 mil. Also the damge per second was equal to 85k with the new items and 97k with the old pieces. Dummy is not really a good measure, so if someone could sim those items for me I'll be on cloud nine.
Really need opinions on this guys.

I simmed my 2 pc/2 pc and then replaced the 2 tier 14 with horridon's shoulders and the mutagenic robe, and that setup simmed 500 dps higher. This was for fire of course. I haven't played around with frost. Just from looking at the spread, the pyro damage is lower, but almost all the other numbers, including the bomb, were higher in the second sim. So really, I think the stats bring you close enough to the 8% pyro dmg at least. The two piece I replaced was just normal 2/2 upgraded though. It might be less valuable to swap out if you are sporting fully upgraded t14 heroic.
