[Fire mage] iLvl vs Stat Priority

4 posts in this topic

I'm trying to decide which gear is better for me, betweeen these trinkets -> http://imgur.com/tE43tjc and these wrists -> http://imgur.com/GycZaUE .
According to the icy veins fire mage guide, the ones i am using are better in terms of DPS. (reference: 2- Evaluating Upgrades Using Stat Weights on http://www.icy-veins.com/wow/fire-mage-pve-dps-gear-legendaries-best-in-slot)

But from a second source, Askmrrobot, these two with higher item level are better than mine. I was wondering if anyone have a take on this specific situation. My guess is that Askmrrobor is taking to account the Stamina too.

So, which ones should i be using and why?

Here are my current stats for reference: http://imgur.com/W6gLQ6L

From what I have seen in the various comments sections and so on, whenever someone checks something with AMR at the moment it comes out with an odd result. I'm not sure why.

As you have said, the ones you are wearing are better, for sure. No need to even sim it to check tbh.

From what I've read in the guide, switch a crit major piece for a crit minor piece at 15 item levels higher. Preferably not switch a crit piece for a non crit, but if so 30 item level difference.  I don't think this was the icy veins guide, might have been altered time's fire guide

The other thing to keep in mind is how badly item level now influences off-pieces. My pala tank is using a Haste/Vers ring that is nearly 30 item levels lower than my next best one. This is simply because main stat doesn't exist on off-pieces anymore. It sucks.

      This is my current pawn string from sims:
      Agility=21.87, CritRating=18.49, HasteRating=24.16, MasteryRating=22.94, Versatility=17.33
      Is anyone else getting haste over mastery and agi? I recently got the Mantle (FINALLY!), so not sure if that is affecting anything. I know crit used to be important for Mantle, so I am not sure why it would be the culprit here. I even tested swapping out my enchants to haste and it did provide a slight boost while maintaining the same scaling. Mastery is at 9300, Crit at 9300 and Haste at 8000 (Roughly), so I definitely dont feel I have enough mastery to start warranting haste over it and agi.
      Just wondering if anyone else is seeing this too?
      I do have the current sim build, so no issues there.

      Salutations! I have a problem regarding stats and ilvl, i've uploaded 2 pictures of my stats and ilvl with 2 different setups.
      In one picture, my stats are (what i consider to be) pretty high except haste, but in order to have these stats i must sacrifice 6 ilvls.
      In the other my stats have decreased drastically (except haste, which has increase drastically, as well as my ilvl)
      So i wonder what i should set my focus on, my ilvl, or my stats?
      Sidenote: with high stats and ilvl 868, In most aoe cases i outdps my hunter friend who is 887 by several miles, his skills are questionable though...
      Thank you so much in advance :)

      i am currently in a heroic raiding guild. 7/7 h EN, and 2/3 h ToV. i am also currently 873 item level with a BIS legendary ring.I have been told, and have felt that on multiple occasions i am severely under performing compared to my other guild m8s.I thought it was just my artifact level. i got my 36th trait, and my dps has skyrocketed! alas it is still not enough. i'm looking for anyone who can help me figure out what i'm doing wrong.Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      My ilvl 873, I do about 300k overall in EN normal/heroic and I'm wondering if that is the right amount dps for shadow priest and this ilvl. I usually do rather low dps on Ursoc and Nythendra, not entirely sure why but I still do above 200k. 
      Here is my character if that helps. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/frostmourne/Lilaina/simple

      So,
      Which trinket should I be using (obviously arms warriors are not concerned with iLvl because Mastery is desired over strength.
      I have the 820 iLvl trinket from a timewarped dungeon and that with heroism, Battle Cry, Potion, trinket use, could provide an extreme amount of dps burst which is also on a 1.5m CD. It seems like an obvious choice but I wanted to hear any thoughts or opinions that people have since I'll be losing 500+ static mastery. Also, the use effect gives around 20-24% increased damage during colossus smash. 
      Thoughts?...
