Frost Armor as Arcane eventually?

5 posts in this topic

Ignore this, I hadn't checked the guide lately.

I had been wondering about stat priority ever since I heard of the RPPM trinkets and the legendary meta gem, so this thought popped into my head. Will Frost Armor ever pull ahead of Mage Armor at higher levels of gear with more haste available? A while back I had this question about Molten Armor and Frost Armor because I saw the 7% against the 5%, but I was told that 7% worth of haste rating is less rating than 5% worth of crit rating. What I am wondering though, is will haste pull ahead in usefulness when before other haste it gives 2975 rating worth of haste, and since the Frost Armor's haste provided is multiplicative? Let's say you have 20% haste and you put on Frost Armor, your new haste won't be 27%, but instead 1.2*1.07=1.284 which means you got an additional .014=1.4% haste=595 rating. 595 extra rating due to that means an additional 170 more stat rating than 7% flat haste, and 145 more total stat rating than Mage Armor and Molten Armor.

The benefits I see with this are that you get more haste from the following:

T15 2 piece set bonus.

All haste you put on your gear by 7% (12.35% with spell haste raid buff).


Legendary gem

Something else I am sure I forgot.

I'm not 100% on the accuracy of everything I have stated, but from what I have gathered, I believe it is all pretty much true. I took this here because you all are more of the theorycrafters/math guys than I am, and have probably dealt with this before and know the answer.

On a side note.

Where are you going to use Mage Armor again? Except in some fights with deadly magical effects or in PvP against casters.

PvP is literally the only time I can think of unless you really need that reduced magic debuff portion of Mage Armor because the gap should keep increasing more and more as time goes on.

I know that Mage Fires soloing Alysrazor usually pick Mage Armor due to the increased buffs do critical and haste. But that's the far I can think.

      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:
