A few changes to our trinkets (besides visual effects) came with the latest PTR update. I tested 2 Trinkets with Arcane and Frost in ~10:30 Minutes each
Trinkets equipped for tests: Kardris Toxic Totem: & Alpha and Omega
Buffs: Appropriate Armour, Flask and Food (1000/300)
Arcane: Tier 15 4p, 38.057 SP, 13,905 haste (32.72%), 6,258 Crit (25.47%) and 13,056 mastery (59.52%) 246k DPS
Frost: Tier 15 4p, 38.057 SP, 17,540 haste (51,16%), 6,258 Crit (25.47%) and 6,407 mastery (37,36%) 207K DPS
Kardris Toxic Totem:
Attacks now have a 19.6% (was 9.9%) to trigger Multistrike, which deals instant additional damage to your target equal to 1/3 of original damage dealt
Tested it with Frost and Arcane both 10 Minutes.
Arcane: Minimum 11.3 Maximum: 256.7k Avg: 55.5k Overall damage 7.9%
Frost: Minmum 6.2k Maximum: 56k Avg 28.4k Overall damage 3.1%
Just another example how good Arcane scales, nice spec and with the new big rune maybe the go to spec in 5.4. Arcane Mages have a huge benefit from the trinket and have now 3 pretty nice trinkets in SoO so far. Looking forward to copy ~3 million Arcane Barrages.
For Frost it`s just .... nice new Water Elemental and shiny new Icicles, but damage, scaling and situations like this shows the weakness of the spec. Defnitely not a frost mage trinket in its current state.
Alpha and Omega
Your attacks have a chance to trigger Wrath of the Darkspear for 20s While WotD is active, each time you cast a spell you gain 2,350 Intellect, stacking up to 10 times (0.61 PPM)
Tested it with both Frost and Fire:
Arcane uptime: 38.6% with 13,905 haste
Frost uptime: 36.9% with 17,540 haste
This trinket has a huge uptime with 0.61 PPM (Wushoolay 0.56, Breath 0.53) and is perfect for Arcane, because you gain 6 of 10 Stacks with only 1 Arcane Missile. 10 Stacks (23500 Intellect) for 15 seconds are no curiosity with Arcane. We will see 3 Million Arcane Barrages in SoO with this trinket.
Frost on the other hand will have a good burst, thanks to Frozen Orb, but ouside of Frozen Orb, Frost stacks slowest. But due to have no other choices as Frost (Multistrike is pretty worse just like 11.7k Crit trinket and the Frenzied Crystal of Rage (received a buff, now 4.35%), this is your trinket. As a loot distributer in our guild, you will have to wait for a new trinkets as frost mage, because there are other spec and classes who benefit way more from all the trinkets in SoO.
One word to Purified Bindings of Immerseues, the "amplification trinket":
Every second Invocation you will have Expanded Mind buff (105s ICD, 20s duration). With 50% haste, that`s 5% overall, where you deal 0% damage while Expanded Mind buff up. It is another Level 90 chore and pretty annoying in my opinion.
