    Ideal legendaries if the cap is raised to 3

    There's been some talk recently in the various discord and on altered time about the cap being raised. My question to all of you is, what legendaries would you like to use if you could use 3 of them at once

    Fire- Gloves+Bracers+ (Helm or belt)
    Arcane- Pants+Class Ring+ Shard
    Frost- Helm+bracers+shard

    arcane choices for single target are those.. but i would take pants/shoulders/belt for aoe fights

    It obviously depends on the fights. It also depends on how viable stacking 2 2 sets and a 4 set is at the time. With good enough tier you would end up using other jewelry legendary options people often overlook. Blizzard has also said recently they don't see benefits in raising the cap to 3, but you never know maybe at 7.3 they will.

    According to AMR, my best three are Lady Vashj's Grasp, Magtheridon's Banished Bracers, and Shattered Fragments of Sindragosa...
    37 + (3*7) + (3*7)
    W/L/Death count: Wolf: 0/1/1 | Mafia: 1/6/7 | TPR: 0.5/4.5/5
    SK: 0/1/1 | VT: 1.5/3.5/5 | Cult: 1/0/1

    For arcane:
    ST: kilt + shard + Soul
    AoE: kilt + mantles + shard

    For fire I'd go for belt+bracers+gloves/shard on single target

    As fire, assuming t21 is buffing our combusion and the fact that we really are running mostly RoP(ST/LB aoe) or Incanters Flow(FPAoE+mechanics) along with Kindling based on fight length, I forsee a future where the gloves become a major/bis lego. I say this, knowing full well I'm 10/12 and don't have the gloves. I've almost completely stopped running MI, and without MI in the picture, combustion frequency becomes more important.

    That said, the hero ring doesn't take a tier slot, so you could be looking at kindling/incanters flow builds like this:

    4p t21 2p t20, belt, bracers, hero/talent ring

    or

    4p t21, gloves, bracers, belt

    My ST sims on the nightlys sim highest ST, RoP, belt and bracers. kindling competes with meteor depending on fight length, but if you pass a certain softcap of fight length kindling stays ahead. Gloves are synergistic, so t21 has some potential to make a high frequency combustion build top sim in any st situation.

    Remember we also ran kindling early in the expansion before they nerfed combustion.

    ... Man. Combustion Heaven.

    Kindling. Gloves.

    4pc.

    Bracers to take advantage of awesome combustion phases.

    Belt just for that sweet execute phase.

    1min combustions maybe? With a 20sec uptime?

    I'd say belt or shoulders as the third. I'm seeing alot of parses where people are wearing them. Regardless, kindling is still my favorite talent, and I run bracers+gloves alot

    I wanted to run shoulders but omfg. 30 casts?!

    It used to be 10. Kinda lame how hard they nerfed it.

    The new ring in 7.3 doesn't seem to count toward the legendary limit, so double ring might not be the way to go. Helm, bracer's and shard, might be the way to go for GS.

    I wasn't talking about the new ring coming in 7.3. I was talking about soul of the archmage riing along with shard and helm.

    He meant that if you're running double ring, you wouldn't be able to use the 'free' 7.3 ring.

    Yea I figured that's what he meant, but since we still have no clue how good or not that ring will be is why I said the current rings.

    with the nerf to tv this patch the gloves lose a lot of value since tv has a lot less uptime. Generally the best combo of legendaries is bracer + TW ring nowadays since that lets you use the new 4 set + the old 2 set. But if you dont have the old 2 set then use any combo of head/bracer/ring. Ofc we can only really speak in generalisations, it will depend on your own gear as to what is best for you, if wanna go into it more sim yourself.

    I see what you're saying, but I'm guessing that if Blizz does let us have 3 legos, the ring would count and may even be mandatory.

    If they gave us 3 legos plus the ring, I'd be all for it, but that would seriously gimp new folks. I think they may do it, but it would be well after final tier has grown old, just to give those who stick around between xpak some real power to play around with.

    Imagine for Frost: Helm, Bracers, Hero Ring, New Ring, t21
