[Frost] Statweight with TV

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

first of all i want to apologyze for my bad english!

 

I got some quetions about statweights for a frostmage.

 

In 90% of the time, i play with TV as T10 talent and frostbomb, cause i really dont like the crystal and i hughly prefere to play with tempo on my gear, just cause i feel like its a smoother playstyle the closer you get to the GCD-cap.
I really dont care if the PC-build is going to be ahead in patchwerk-style fight and so on, cause it just doen´t feel fun to me. Frostbomb brings a lot more skill and fun to the playstyle of a frostmage too, thats why i prefer it against the nova. I just take the nova in fights with a lot of target-switching.

 

My questions -

when tv is my talent of choice, is tempo > crit always, or just when i hit the 989 tempo? And is the nova > frostbomb when i take tv, or doesn´t it really matter?

 

For example, i got the spire of tectus and the staff from the endboss of highmaul (dont know the english name atm). Is the spire > endbossstaff when i run with TV? Am i right with this? 

 

last question:

can someone explain me why 989 tempo is so important for TV? With my current gear i get >40 sek uptime for my icy veins without spaming icelances. Where is the benefit of 989 tempo? Dont get me wrong - i love tempo as a stat the most of all, cause i just like faster casting and lower GCD. But the fact that pretty much all guids for frostmages name tempo as the weakest stat, i dont want to build my gear in the wrong direction.

 

At least - sorry for my bad english... I hope u get the point of my questions and can help me a bit and tell me that going for tempo isnt a bad thing in my position smile.png

 

edit: my armory with equiped spire. Btw, i got the multistrike-procc trinket from evergreen too...

Hi,

 

thank you for your answer. In deed, simcraft helped me a lot, i tried many things yesterday and hey - in almost every scenario its ms > haste > rest for me smile.png

 

but at this point i got an other question - should i go for haste on my enchants and sockets when i can reach the 989 haste with them, or should i keep ms > all?

With TV you can aim for 989 Haste giving you GCD cap during IV

989 cap is important because you get 50% haste during IV. This means that each GCD is 1second, effectively giving you much more TV uptime relative to spellcasts.

Thanks for your reply!

Ok, in fact that means that i dont go for the IV-Glyph when i hit 989 haste? Wouldn´t make this  bloodlust kinda sad as you waste haste over the GCD with it? When i think about it, i dont really wanna miss the +ms on IV from the glyph... =/
