Re: M+ and Specs Question

Welcome! :)

All three specs are perfectly viable in M+ right now, as could be seen nicely during the invitational.

Re: Looking for some advice for frost

Get close, but not over the crit cap. Any gem/enchant that puts you over I'd invest in your next best stat (in your case haste) to get full value out of it. Satyr is fine. Try to collect high pieces for non-set, non-legendary slots to have more options when simming around new gear. In the long run I...

No need, conflag spreads automatically with ignite and blast furnace doesn't do any damage.

Re: Tier 21 nerf

Oh come one, why the Frost change? Having Frostbolt buffed instead of Ice Lance would have been sweet for GS.


Meanwhile I'm still waiting for the set that buffs Ray of Frost by 30%. THAT would be cool.

Re: Rotation

Assign IV and Flurry to a Macro? It helps to ensure a flawless string of GCDs when it counts the most.

Re: Thoughts on the PTR Changes to T21?

(copy from mmo) For Frost it depends on how the mechanic is actually working. Suppose it's consumed on a succesful cast. In that case only the ice lance would get buffed, but nothing would change about the rotation. It would be a fairly simple buff to the shatter combo, but nothing else. In that cas...

Re: Legendary choices

Good to know, but do you know why that's the case? While more haste would help to get our more faster fireballs, more crit would mean you'd need to cast fewer of them due to the hot streak pyros you generate. Thanks for pointing that out.

Found the reason for the negative haste: seems I go oom. Sorry for straying off topic a little. Here's the sim:

Re: What to do with time gap before second Frozen Rain cast?

Get more or less haste? Maybe replace one IL cast in the middle with a Frostbolt?

Re: Legendary choices

Was looking over Ezekielyo's guide since getting my latest Lego. In terms of lego priority it shows the belt (which I have) and shard as top choices aside from the bracers which I still don't have, but yet when I sim myself it's saying to use the lego shoulder's instead of shard, even though in the...

Re: Legendary Waist Pryoblast Scorch Timing

You don't want to bind Scorch to any button that you have to press with your index, middle, or ring finger because it can limit your mobility. For example, in case you use WASD and you bind it to F you can't go right and cast Scorch at the same time. Never bind anything that you might need to cast w...

Re: Sim techniques

1. Yes. 2. If your weights start flipping (for given talents and legendaries) it means you're optimized. In that case pick whatever you feel like playing. Fire weights are indeed all over the place, you're not alone with the issue. Switching a single talent (Firestarter vs. Conflagration, LB vs. FP,...

If I had a specific question, I would have asked it. In truth my guild is asking members to parse higher.

That's pretty cool, thanks for the sims. <irony> They are not the same at all, no idea why you would think that. They probably even have different icons and animations! </irony> The one that gives you pure damage is on top (as it should), but the others with secondary benefits are so close that you ...
