Re: [BFA 8.0] Frost Mage M+ Guide

great guide One question about stats. When using simcraft which type of bossfight and how long fight would you use to simulate mythic+ environment? Or do you try more profiles and than average? If yes, please which? I don't have anything special setup for m+. Just using patchwerk sims and a bit of ...

Re: [7.3.5] Frost Mage M+ Guide

Ok from my reading of this guide would the following rotation be a rough interpretation of it. -open with FB,IV -Ebonbolt -Flurry -FB as a filler until FoF proc or BF proc then use immediately Frozen orb/Blizzard on CD Ebonbolt should always be your precast not Frostbolt. The only difference with A...

Re: [7.3.0] Frost Mage M+ Guide

1. It sometimes gets really close and I get antsy of the damage, or sometimes the healer can't keep us up/doesn't have a healing cd. 2. There's swirlies on the ground too? I always looked at the scythe in the air, or tried to. Okay, so Skovald's pretty much a don't mess up ever kinda thing. Got it....

You can find that pinned in the mage discord, here's a link. It was posted by Frosted.

Re: [7.3.0] Arcane Mage M+ Guide

What about using sephuz + mantle to spend all mana then just GS + evo between pulls? That is definitely a thing, and is something I should actually add to the guide. Mantle + Sephuz is by far the highest AoE burst we can do if not in the entire game. Have fun with it just make sure you manage your ...

Re: [7.2.5] Frost Mage M+ Guide

Any reason for choosing Bigwigs over DBM? I've always heard it's more personal preference. Some say DBM is more annoying but I don't really mind it. The timers for DBM in dungeons are all off or non existent. Lilwigs/Bigwigs has it all there. So do you just swap ST trinkets and put Shard on for bos...

Re: [7.2.5] Frost Mage M+ Guide

1. Are the trinkets listed in any specific order (i.e. is the best to worst from top to bottom)? The trinkets listed are not in any particular order. They are however a selection of the top trinkets you can get for M+. 2. I'm running 915 Tarnished Sentinel Medallion and 895 Whispers. I also have a ...

Re: [7.2.5] Frost Mage M+ Guide

Yea GS has some amazing synergy with Sephuz, granted there are going to be times where you want to use Frost Nova to proc sephuz as well as using Nova to double shatter your GS hits. But given that, GS is still really fun in M+. Although I wouldn't necessarily count on it too much. Personally the dp...

Re: [7.2.5] Arcane Mage M+ Guide

As i mentioned in a nearby thread, please re-sim your mantle+kilt setup with edited APL, currently simcraft is not using Abarr on 4 AC stacks against 3 or 4 targets. Those sims were done with an edited apl, heres the line that was used for it. actions.burn+=/arcane_barrage,if=talent.resonance.enabl...

Re: [7.2.5] Arcane Mage M+ Guide

1) KJBW is almost never needed if you have sephuz, mantle, or kilt :(
2) i track sated debuff through elvui's party frames

Re: [7.2.5] Frost Mage M+ Guide

I have tested frost bomb, not extensively, but in an actual dungeon albeit it was only a 16. From what I tested it just wasn't worth taking imo. The reliance on FoF procs to properly utilize frost bomb meant a spikier distribution of dps and the loss of AG made me lose more orb casts throughout the ...

Re: [7.2.5] Frost Mage M+ Guide

You're giving us too many variables for Frost Bomb's viability. AG literally adds no variance to our rotation and doesn't require a swing of luck for you to do DPS. While Frost Bomb is way more susceptible to bad RNG. You'd have to run thousands of runs and iterations for me to believe Frost Bomb is...

Re: [7.2.5] Frost Mage M+ Guide

Those are some interesting results. If you don't mind, could you see what happens if you assume a fight length of 30-60 seconds, without IV and TW? I assume this is a case of sim vs. reality. The issue here might be that Blizzard gains DPS value from its ability to reset the orb while Frost Bomb do...

Re: [7.2.5] Frost Mage M+ Guide

A quick note on Frost Bomb: I've been running this for the last week (Bracers with Soul of the Archmage, thanks to op) and found it to vastly outperform Arctic Gale. My overall DPS throughout the dungeons went up considerably, maybe someone could confirm my findings. The sequence Frost Bomb>Frozen ...

Will polymorph always put you in combat with the thing you polymorph?
