Re: IF vs. RoP in Simulationcraft

You have taken the first part, to do the simulations. The next step is to evaluate yourself as a player - can you properly execute rune of power? Because if you take it for that 2% extra dps and fail to execute it correctly, you wont net any dps over IF. Do this on a per-boss basis - some fights are...

Re: Why do people hate Arcane?

I dont think people hate it, but its not "meta", and people like meta. Arcane in comparison to fire has several disadvantages - you have no safety net (cauterize), you have to be constantly in melee, which means you generate a lot more threat (in higher keys most stuff is kited and you will mess up ...

Re: Anyone give up 2 pc t20?

Best setup I could do was 973 ilevel with Helm/Shard, still my 965 set with 930s t20 beats it by 32k dps. 9 more months and you can forget about old tier bonuses, finally.

for hymdall drop your rop then go all the way to the right of it, then if you get targeted but the blade run to your left and you should be able to get the full use out of it.

Re: Ignite nerfed?

The main thing I noticed is that my mastery dropped a bit in value for ST, and since I usually don't aoe on High Command I noticed a drop off there as well. I feel like on any individual pull we can overcome the "ignite nerf" due to our inherent randomness, and probably won't notice much. Might be ...

Re: Pantheon Trinket

TLDR: Fat INT procs carry Frost. Make sure to sim with X amount of Pantheon trinkets in raid, then your Sheat will not beat it. The trinket works on all bosses. I currently have 975 version and after simming it constantly, I realized the INT proc is what carries the trinket, not the crappy dmg proc(...

Re: What to do if Shard of the Exodar is not an option

People see 40% or so in the Frozen Touch tooltip and think thats a flat 40% increase. Unfortunately it doesnt work that way. Ontopic - in Antorus you can use sephuz on several fights for your burst windows. Exodar ring being ilevel 1000 provides insane crit/haste which means you can equip more vers/...

Re: To Sim or Not to Sim

Wearing injector will also push your crit/haste ratings down quite a bit to around 28-30% range.

Re: Who changes gear sets on bosses - Heroic?

Exodar is good even you BL at last phase, you still can pop your own 2nd one. The only thing I really hate about Legion - why the fuck didnt they just let us have a personal hero ring instead of depending on the raid?????? On topic - while you can hero for yourself after the execute hero, dont the ...

Re: Shimmerlancing + T21 (4pc) benefit

It has been this way since one of the last iterations on the PTR which is why shimmerlancing is back. This is most likely intended as I think they will specifically make the buff linger an extra half second for no reason at all.

Re: Double meteor truck with shoulders?

It was mentioned previously here - you need to get to 29 stacks of the buff and have a hot streak active. You shoot out the fireball and pyro at the same time(I believe around 20-25yards was the best range) and your shoulders proc twice, so 2 meteors fall down.

Re: 2pc+4pc? Or 4pc and Mythic gear?

Frost sim is currently prioritizing gloves/cloak for T20. Both, plus helm drop from very easy bosses in ToS mythic, I would suggest pugging them via LFG too.

Re: Keep t20 2set in antorus?

What i would like to know more is....do we break ToS 4 set for having a new 2 set.In other words is it worth having 2+2 set over 4 set ToS. Didn't run any sims but 4 set bonus feels just far too valuable to me. For mythic progress you should be able to have 4pc t21 and gloves+head t20(according to ...

Re: Kil'Jaeden Rupturing Singularity blink problems

Most likely caused by the glyph as people mentioned. On our kill yesterday which I recorded I tend to blink both very early right after the hit or even with 1 full second delay to aim for incoming armageddon, always worked fine for 200 pulls or so.

Re: Recently ding 110 and can't decide between fire or frost

You can gamble a bit - set your loot spec to Frost for another quick lego and then set to Arcane to fish for 1 more quick one. Frost can do very well with any leggo early on.

Re: 7.3.5 build

Keep all gear you acquire around a reasonable ilevel. I am 942/945 but have tons of rings/offpieces/main pieces/set mostly from 930 and above, 925 for jewelry, so that you ALWAYS have flexibility.

Re: Ask Mr. Robot? Anyone else use?

AMR and Icy-veins were maybe useful 2 expansions ago. Just use the simcraft software or raidbots. I only recently started using raidbots for "top gear" (best in bags) and the results have been very consistent with logs/performance.

Re: Trinket choices

At your gear level TFB and OWL can easily be offset by other trinkets, so your sim is most likely right. Also, the Burning Portal Key doesnt have only vers iirc, it also has a big fat chunk of int on it too.
