Fire Mage 25% Haste Cap: Why 2005 Haste Rating?

4 posts in this topic

Hello again everyone,

After studying the guides here in detail and reading about Fire Mages on the internet, there is something I don't understand.

I imagine that you are using the formulas from Elitist Jerks to compute the haste values for the caps, see there: http://elitistjerks....#Haste_and_DoTs

If I follow the formula for calculating the 25% Haste cap (13 ticks of Combustion), I need to do:

tick_speed_required = (10 * 1) / (13 - 0.5) = 0.8
then

haste_percent = 1 / (0.8 + 0.0004999) = 1.249219253581752

So I need to reach 24.9219253581752% Haste to get to that cap (according to EJ formulas). After I remove Netherwind Presence and the 5% spell haste raid buff, I obtain

haste_from_haste_rating = 1.249219253581752 / 1.03 / 1.05 = 15.50802159794282%

As far as I understand, I get 1% spell haste whenever I stack 128.05716 Haste Rating (so they say on EJ), so this means 1985.9 or 1986 Haste Rating to reach 15.50802159794282% Haste. In this case, why does it say 2005 on EJ and everywhere else on the internet, including on the guide here on Icy Veins?

I hope you can help me

I'm not quite sure but I do know that if you have two piece T13, you only need to get to 1505 haste cap due to the tier bonus.

The catch is, there are different soft haste plateaus that will give you an extra tick of combustion. Go for the lowest and if you can still hit the next one without sacrificing crit or hit then go for it.

That's an interesting question. The formulas they give on Elitist Jerks are correct, but there is one case that they do not properly mention.

Usually, when you compute tick_speed_required, you get something like 1.8345432 second and you need to only keep a precision of 3 digits, so 1.8345432 becomes 1.834; in the same vein, 1.8319999999 becomes 1.831 (and not 1.832). It's not a rounding operation.

If tick_speed_required is an exact value, like 1.125 or 0.8, you need to remove 0.001 before proceeding. Don't ask me why, it's just the way it is.

In the case of the 25% soft haste cap with Fire Mages, you need to do:

tick_speed_required = (10 * 1) / (13 - 0.5) = 0.8
0.8 is an exact value, so we remove 0.001 before moving on, which gives 0.799

haste_percent = 1 / (0.799 + 0.0004999) = 1.2507818950321319

haste_from_haste_rating = 1.2507818950321319 / 1.03 / 1.05 = 15.65250994286933%

To obtain 15.65250994286933% Haste from Haste Rating, you need 2005 (2004.4, to be precise) Haste Rating.

Thanks for the explanation. I never imagined the formulas could get so complicated...

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Trying to get myself geared better but seem to be having problems.  Artifact is almost full on fire.  Just having to unlock the 3rd trait is being a pain.

      So I love this brawlers guild and have thoroughly enjoyed the challenge up until meatball. Now I'm just bitter. I'm a frost mage but I also tried arcane and I can't touch this guy. Ive tried any and ever strategy and buff I'm able to afford and haven't even got him under 50% yet. I'm 865 so I feel like it should be possible I didn't think my gear would be a problem until rank six honestly. So any advice or help or tips or whatever I'm desperate.
