    I have 9.26% Haste and I`m using IV, Berserking and BL all together, no problems with that. But I recommend to use only 2 of those buffs.

    Cross posting this, as this seems to change trinket priority:

    I'm seeing it do from 4-6% of my damage on a boss fight. I think it's time to reconsider the BiS lists.

    SimulationCraft is posting a 260% buff. I'm following suit in updating Rawr with the 260% buff.

    edit: Initial testing with BiS 378 normal, VPLC is as good as Shard for arcane. Depending on gear it will probably be a bit lower but not by much.

    Frost It's BiS period. In 378 normal gearing your looking at VPLC and Rune of Zeth as your trinkets.

    Fire again it is BIS period.

    In 391 BiS with Dragonwrath, 398 VPLC is much better than Shard for Arcane.
    In 391 BiS Frost with Dragonwrath, the two best trinkets are VPLC and Necromantic Focus
    in 391 BiS Fire with Dragonwrath has always been the VPLC and Rune.

    So we should aim for VPLC and Rune for normal frost? Not NF and VPLC?

    It could be you should go for NF. I was only basing on 378 normal Draenei (my toon). Give me a minute to double check with an orc (race SimC uses for their frost build).

    I don't have the patience to go back and look through all the pages for this thread to see if this was mentioned already, but I'm getting Glyph of Molten Armor > Glyph of Frostbolt by as little as 30 dps in my current gear.

    Finally got 4x t12! Let's see if I get some DPS boost next raid

    Anyone know of any addon that shows my crit chance against my target? With shatter etc

    I've finally been catching up on this thread after a few months just kind of doing my own frost magey goodness, and I saw several posts asking about going from T11 4pc to T11 2pc and T12 2pc. The answer given was usually something like the one above. I'm just curious under what circumstances hanging on to 4pc T11 was considered better?

    For all sims that I did both at the time of switching from my 4pc T11 to 2pc T11/2pc T12 and reran today using current gear and going back to 4pc T11 from 2pc T11/2pc T12, the 2pc T11/2pc T12 combo always nets higher dps, usually on the order of about 1,000 DPS. I'm not sure if I'm perhaps using an older version of SimCraft, have made drastically different gear choices than the norm, or if there are assumptions being made about which pieces you might replace / the possibility of heroic T11. However, if you were unlucky enough to have no heroic T11 as I was, and say replace the gloves and legs of your T11 with T12 (this nets the least amount of reforging for pure stat and 2 pc bonus gain), then the flat stat gain and 2-3% damage increase from the T12 2pc bonus should outweigh the 10% haste on FB.

    Also, blargh at MMO not letting me separate these into two posts without trying to edit one into the other >_<:

    I was also wondering: After obtaining Necromantic Focus last night over a rather dejected shadow priest and starting to test it out a bit on dummies, I started to wonder if anyone had any thoughts on whether or not it's worth occasionally hard casting a FFB to keep the mastery proc from NF going if it appears that you're going to lose it, especially if you do not have the 4pc T12 bonus yet (my frost mage is my alt and while I love him, it's going to be difficult to get the 4pc because of getting to Domo).

    Because of FFB's long cast time and the time it takes for the DoT itself to actually tick, this requires you to hard cast FFB with approximately 5-6 seconds left on the buff timer without any DoTs remaining. Anything under 5 seconds and you can get the FFB itself off, but the DoT won't tick fast enough to refresh the proc stacks. Obviously this is not ideal and you have a large amount of uptime without doing this anyway, and even more uptime if you have the 4pc T12. Just trying to ponder if the slight DPS loss from the occasional FFB instead of FB cast can be offset by constantly keeping up the mastery proc. Thoughts?

    Ok, I am trying to improve my frost mage and add flamestrike to my AoE. Before I simply had Blizzard bound to a key. Now instead I bound a macro to this key:
    Code:
    #showtooltip [nomod] Blizzard; [mod:shift] Flamestrike
    /cast [nomod] Blizzard; [mod:shift] Flamestrike
    So when I go into a AoE fight I start with shift+key and then continue simply with the key. Now, for some reason this is not working. It shows the Blizzard tooltip and if I press the key it casts Blizzard, and if I press shift it will show the Flamestrike tooltip but when I press shift+key it won't cast anything. What am I missing? I have an identical macro for switching between armors and it works flawlessly.

    EDIT: if I press shift and click on the icon, it works and casts Flamestrike, what gives?

    I believe that certain combinations are not available - possibly if they are already set in your keybindings? As I recall, Shift+(1 - 6) is set to bring up action bars in the default key-binding.

    Try changing the modifier to Alt or Ctrl and see if that fixes the issue.

    You can unbind those bindings in the options menu...

    I tried your build and I liked it though one thing I found was the ignite talent doesn't seem to contribute as much as I thought it would

    tried a few runs and ignite is my lowest contributing damage of my spells at like 2%

    would putting the 3 points in "fire power" instead make up a better investment.

    No sir. You'll still get more out of Ignite.

    3.8% of my total damage on Baleroc, and I don't have my 4p yet, versus +3% damage to 9.9 and 5.2% of my damage. Adds 27317.4 damage, slightly higher than DMC:V's damage proc, which is 0.3% of my damage. Even if you account for the explosion that hits like a wet noodle, which is next to nothing, as well as fire damage which doesn't have our frost spec apply to it. Let's pretend I've got the highest fire mage on Baleroc 10's explosion damage, so add 44k. 71317 vs 231143.

    Ignite wins.

    Wasn't the discussion we had some time ago centered around whether Firepower was better than Netherwind Presence, with a huge factor being SimCraft not allowing Frost to gain the explosion with only 2 points in FP? How did we get into discussing FP vs. Ignite?

    The guy I quoted was talking Ignite vs FP, saying 2% of his overall damage was lower than expected and wanted to use FP instead.

    Edit: Hm, on the FP vs NP, could we not run the sim for 3/3 FP, grab the damage/DPS contribution, run the sim again at 2/3 to allow for the 2% fire damage, take 1% off the explosion damage and multiply it by .66 to figure out a rough estimate? It'd at least give us a ballpark number.

    Ugh, I'd have to remove 1% from FFB and FO, then reduce the explosion rate to...bah fine, brb.

    ---------- Post added 2011-09-08 at 09:48 PM ----------

    Okay, with rough napkin math...FP would increase your DPS by 194.
    Losing that 2% Haste means you lose FrB casts which drops your DPS by 277.
    Net loss: 83 DPS

    So...I guess it's close enough to not matter?
