    Living Bomb refreshing question

    Okay so i have a question regarding refreshing Living Bomb.

    normally i try to keep it up 100% of the time and refresh it before the last tick, however now that i have some trinkets and tailoring enchant im not sure how to go about it.

    The question is : when i proc a trinket or ''lightweave embroidery'' am i supposed to immediatly refresh Living Bomb? and if yes what would you say are the minimum stats a proc should give for it to be worth refreshing?

    The procs i can get are :

    2000 int - 15 sec (tailoring cloak enchant)
    8800 haste - 10 sec (15% chance 55sec CD trinket proc)
    6121 haste - 20 sec (15%chance 115sec CD trinket proc)

    also one more point, when u pop cd's like icy veins / lifeblood(herblore haste buff) do you refresh Living Bomb immediatly or still wait till last tick?

    I am playing Frost btw and ilvl 516 (Started playing since a week ago again, first time mage) Thanks already.

    affdots is helpful for this

    Snapshotting is easiest when timing from the ending of a buff rather than the beginning. Ideally you watch when a buff procs, but it's simpler and you'll achieve the biggest gains to refresh LB when a buff is about to wear off. Gets you in a good habit of never wasting a buff, too.

    Though the practice will become moot once WoD arrives since snapshotting will be gone.

    Assuming they don't flat out remove our bombs. Celestalon's Tweet still has me confused if they're just nerfing the bombs multi-target capabilities or just removing them.

    Also, a huge nerf in the 'difficulty' of Aff/Shadow :P

    Akraen, you do Virginia proud. Not sure which part you're from, but I just moved from NoVA to Central. Now that was refreshing.

    Wait, you left Stormrage solo, or did you bring the guild?

    Took my guild, well, some of it. The rest are coming shortly.

    I have big, weird, mindblowing plans for WoD. Can only do it on one server, Argent Dawn.
