[Frost] How important is crit?

8 posts in this topic

Hello :) This is my first post here in the forums, although i follow Icy veins guides and read the forum for a long time :P

 

 My main is a frost mage, and my doubt is about the crit rating. Is it that much of a big deal and really important to get to the 28% buffed crit as a frost mage for the 100% crit chance with ice lance agains frozen targets (as icy veins frost mage guide suggests) or should i reforge crit into haste/mastery on every piece with crit on it and disregard the 28% crit cap? 

 

 

   i have some unreforged crit in some pieces and im siting on 29% buffed crit, is it to much for frost mage?  here is my armory link, hope it works cause im new to this forum posting :P

Hello FrostyMage,

Basically Frost can use quite some crit. I know a certain mage (looking at you Kver) who did Garrosh running on extremely high crit levels. Personally though, I don't really go for high crit levels. I try to avoid getting crit items but I do enforce the shatter cap (which is 26.5% crit not 28%) as it is just some free damage. 
The only reason for ignoring the shatter cap is if you sacrifice too much haste (or fail to reach a breakpoint).

Concerning your reforges.
Go to ask mr robot:

Edit these weights: Set haste to 15832 (this is an extra tick of NT).
Crit to 26.5%

that's it
 

cheers

P.S Thank you for titling the thread according to my preference smile.png

Berliniboop you dogged it

 

Crit cap is 28!

But on AMR it will say "crit to 25%" but if you go for that you will actually get 28 on the character sheet when buffed as it already account for crit suppression there.

Franikokap If I am not mistaken Komma had tweeted Celestalon and Crit Suppression comes after the boost on crit chance.

So Critcap: 100% = (C x 2 + 50) - 3
103 = C x 2 + 50
53 = C x 2
C = 26,5

 

But you are indeed correct about AMR accounting for 3% crit suppression.
So you would set it on 26,5 -3 = 23,5

4:47 PM <•Komma> no, I think Berl is referring to that time navv privately asked Celestalon
4:47 PM <durrtygoodz> ahh
4:48 PM <•Komma> and how he said "should be 26.5%" but then quickly corrected himself and said "no, you're right, 28%"

I guess I should pay more attention to what's being said :P

Correction: Crit Soft Cap at 28%
