    Regular meta vs PvP meta

    Hi there

    I have a frost DK 2H and a frost mage, both ilvl 522. I was wondering if the PvP meta gem for the head slot is better than the regular metas for either of the 2?

    Thanks in advance and happy new years

    from what i understand 2h frost dk, its better to have the pvp meta.

    for frost mage im not 100% sure, but i think the int + 3% crit is better. But like i said, im not 100% on mage.

    +3% extra damage when you Crit

    or

    +1% damage all the time and + 1-2% reduced damage taken all the time
    The choice is rather obvious to take the pvp meta.

    But Frost DK and mage's most powerful attacks crit most of the time so maybe not so obvious.

    Useless, as they hotfixed it to not work in instanced PvP anymore.

    Hmm 3% crit for a mage takes a 70k icelance to 72.1k... 665 pvp power is a little under 3% increased damage, so let's just say 2.5% which makes that 70k icelance 71.75k... (I did not take the 216 int into account) Add into that the reduction in damage taken and I also think it is a no brainer.

    EDIT: I was wrong, the power is like 1.5% increase now, but I still think it is better.
