    For a frost Mage shouldn't Breathe of the Hydra be better than Cha-ye? Both are LFR versions of the trinket.

    Do you not have any other gear in your bags to use that doesn't contain ANY hit rating? Even with a slight drop of ilvl it will net an increase as your 2.95% over hit cap of which is all dead stats.

    Hey all.
    Potentially a stupid question, but is it worth me breaking my 4 piece NORMAL t15 for a single piece of t16 NORMAL.
    I have attached a screenshot of the stat differences, but can't work out if the 4pc crit bonus for Pyro is better than the 500ish Int and 1k crit.
    Any advice would be great Thanks.

    If you are playing Fire why do you reforge from Critical strike ?
    About chest piece, I'd probably take the t16 one, because I like the flat gain in stats (mostly the 600 intellect gain), but I usually don't cling to set bonuses, so, well...

    Keep your 4pc, its 6.5% crit to pyro which is huge.

    The 4 set for frost is awful. That should be your answer.

  8. #88
    Agreed. Keep 2set tho. And to be honest, try to go for 2pT16, it's win.

    Hi ! A gear review for my frost mage would be helpful if you have the time fellow gamers

    Thanks a lot !

    Really should get rid of those crit and int/crit gems. Go for haste. ALOT! Otherwise it looks pretty decent. Reforges are properly done.

    It is true that my staff, boots and helmet are 5.3 Fire spec vestiges, so I'm waiting for replacements (not a hardcore raider, obviously, or would have done them before).

    I am wondering about NT tho, I read that I have to change from LB to NT at about 12k haste, but i'm maybe wrong. Thx for the help =)

    have just come back from a 3 week break a few days ago, and swapped back to frost ( my fave spec)
    although maybe arcane is doing slightly better i enjoy frost so much.

    Im no high end raider i casually raid a few times a week.

    From looking at various posts i am getting confused about how much haste i should go up to, im currently on 15679 i have no set bonus i have removed the old tier for upgrades.

    Sairalinde is my toon on Bloodhoof, for some reason i cannot post my link to armory.

    I am currently struggling so much against other dps against the warrior and hunter in my guild im about 100k down on some fights they are doing 300k and im bearing making 200k, could someone take a look at my gear and my stats and tell me where i have gone wrong, with the subject of patch changes, i would really appreciate it. I also seem to do high ish dps but low damage any pointers welcome

    I have a few questions about my gear...
    http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...Sidaa/advanced

    Should I respec frost until I get more gear for arcane (4set bonus) or so far my gear is ok to play arcane.
    I'm probably going to start raiding next week SoO.

    Also any comments on what I should be changing in my gear would appreciate.

  14. #94
    Hello.

    I rolled a mage for SoO because my guild needed it, from playing a brm monk throughout MoP. ( http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...licop/advanced )
    Which spec should I be and at around what ilvls should I switch, if I should do so? I've been trying to find a definite answer to it but I just can't seem to find it.
    I would prefer playing fire as soon as I can, unless there's a major difference between fire and arcane dps. (I want to maximize my dps, so what I find the most fun isn't a factor)

    Also, I have t15 hc head, shoulders & gloves, and normal chest. Should I switch my current gear out and go arcane with 4p t15, or just go fire and keep my current gear on?

    Any general advice on when to spec what and what gear to use would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    Do you have any T16? If you are wanting to go arcane you need T15 4pc, fire is pretty much the same. Although with fire you can swap T15 heroic 4pc soon and you get T16 reg 4pc as for arcane i would recommend holding on to your T15 heroic 4pc until you get T16 Heroic 4pc. The T16 2pc for frost is very good but the 4pc is crap. That may have been confusing so to sum up : If you want to play fire use T15 4pc and only swap it for T16 pc. If you want to play arcane use you T15 Heroic and only swap for T16 Heroic. If you want to play frost ge the T16 2pc asap and use 3 HWF/WF pices. Arcane is doing the best dps as of right now but you need the gear for it, putting a number on it is tricky so just try all three specs and see what is working best for you.

    Ye, I realised.

    Redid it, goal is to minimise hit and then gem expertise as that leaves more secondary stats altogether over int.

    The gemming for that gear is 11 exp/mastery and 5 hit/mastery gems, which means that the blue and red gem slots have precisely the same value. And actually have exactly the same value as a yellow gem slot. (Since we are using all blue/red to hit the hit cap)

    At BiS, all gem slots have equal worth :O !

    Get rid of UVLS as soon as you can, you might have known already but it is terrible for mages.
