Mage T17 - 670 2pc bonus vs a 685 gear

3 posts in this topic

I'm wondering about the value of the T17 2pc for Arcane mages.

 

Currently I have the 670 Chest and 670 Legs.  

 

Chest is equipped but I also have 685 version of Leggings of the Molten Torrent.  (not sure how to link showing the upgrade)

 

Seems like the 2pc bonus isn't worth it compared to the additional stats on the higher ilvl piece.

 

Thoughts?

Not really a bump, but the same question applies to 4pc bonus.

 

I now have 4pc.  2 are 670, 2 are 685.  

 

I have 685 non-set gear for the 2 slots that are 670.

 

So, is it worth the ilvl and stat boost to go to 685 and lose the 4pc bonus?

 

When I sim it, it's close, but I'm not confident in the accuracy of my simming.

In general, tier bonuses are going to be better.

 

Also keep in mind that shoulders / gloves slots have less stats allocated to them compared to the helm / chest / legs gear slots. If you're gaining tier bonuses via shoulders and gloves, the ilvl loss in those slots isn't as bad as losing ilvl in the other 3.

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding and for us to be able to do that we need some more people to fill the gaps. Besides raiding our friendly bunch of members enjoy running mythic+ on daily basis, helping out with world quests among other things. Our discord is usually filled with members for daily banter and weekly fun. If you enjoy all that, you most certainly will enjoy your stay in Volatile.
      Who are we looking for?
      We're primarily looking for ranged DPS to fill out the roster. But we are also interested in any dps class with a good healing offspec. Even though your class isn't listed below, don't be afraid of getting in contact with us.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - Open
      Melee DPS - Closed
      Overall we're looking for people with a good knowledge of their class/spec who know how to improve their gameplay. Being fairly thick skinned and being able to accept constructive criticism, as well as the occasional jab from some of our more 'outspoken' members, is a big plus too.
      When do we raid?
      We raid two times a week as standard, we often have an additional raid day if necessary. See raid times below. 
      Thursday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Monday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Tuesday: 8pm - 11pm (Additional day)
      Application process:
      We believe the best way to get to know if someone is right for the guild is just to have a chat, rather than go through a long application process. So we'll have a chat, look at logs and possibly run some M+ to get to know each other. If you're interested in joining our mythic raid team, contact any of the following:
