would it be a dps gain to use the raid finder 483 set over 489s?
I play frost dps and have 3x 483 and 1x 494 set pieces but i also have a 489 i can swap for the set piece.
How much of a benefit is 50% cd on icy veins
Also whats a good haste rating to have with just some self buffs, i read earlier after 22% haste, frostbolts no longer benefit from the global cooldown reduction.
Another question what stat ratings should i use in ask mr robot, and where can i get an update list of these, do they change from patch to patch?
If it's just a matter of swapping one piece of ilevel 489 for one set piece of ilevel 483, you should definitely use your 4-piece bonus.
With the 4-piece bonus, the cooldown of Icy Veins becomes 1min30s. This is a 2% damage increase in theory.
The 22% haste is only when Time Warp and Icy Veins are combined. You can always use Icy Veins after Time Warp to avoid that, or you can use Glyph of Icy Veins.
And yes, stat weights do change. They actually change every time Simulation Craft is updated
We are working on a feature that will make it easy for people to see stat weight values. Stay tuned!
