Haste and crit points for frost mages

7 posts in this topic

dear,

How much crit points you need for 1%crit? and what's a good haste % for a frost mage? i was thinking at around 15% (20% with your haste buff on that's 25% when mage armor stacks with the one of spriests of boomkins)

iirc I like to be between 1822-1860 Crit rating on my frost mage, and I use my gear interchangeably with fire right now and have around 31.5% (edit: in fire) crit raid buffed with that much rating.

As for haste, with my crit sitting comfortably just barely above 26.5% in frost spec with the above rating, I tend to stay right around 15% haste, 20% with armor, and that feels just right for me.

Excuse me but can you confirm which is correct Shatter the equation?

1. multiply by 2 + (50% of 100). 25% x 2 + 50% = 100%

2. multiply by 2 + (50% of my critical). 40% x 2 + 20% = 100%

I'm not sure.

but 26.5% cause of SUPER SECRET 103% crit cap. Blizz is a sneaky lot

If you choose to use Rune of Power rather than Invocation, should you then look to crit cap or continue to acquire haste over crit?

Right now, as frost, it is not practical to attempt to be crit-capped. You should go with haste over crit with either talent.

      Hello , I just got my hand on the Arcane Giant from Kharazan , so i really want to test them in the Sottles yogg tempo mage deck.
      Any help for what to replace for them ? The deck is really good on its own so its a hard decision for me.
      Tnx in advance :)

      Sorry im pretty new to WoW and I read a guide on fire mage and it shows that the priority of stats is:
      Intellect; Critical Strike; Mastery; Haste; Versatility. but when getting new equipment how much of a stat should I give up to gain a secondary stat? For example if I lose 100 Int, but gain 300 Crit is it worth it? And how do I know at what amount it is worth it to give up a stat to gain a less important stat?

      Hello Everyone,
       
      I was digging for a long time trying to find a weakaura that could use a progress bar to track the stacks of a buff instead of the duration. I tweaked the only existing WeakAura I found for use with Incanter's Flow.
      If anyone has any tweaks (specifically, I don't like how it lingers after the buff disappears) please share!

      Also, I place this combined group above it. Essentially just the incanter's flow buff icon that glows when it reaches max stacks. Helps to draw my attention briefly to it, as if the progress bar wasn't enough.
