Ideal Crit Chance to Play Fire

Hey members of icy veins, I hate to be a bother, but I have a quick question. What is the "ideal" crit percentage to swap from frost to fire?Frost has gotten quite dull after playing it for the past few months, but I don't want to hurt my raid by swapping to a spec that can do less damage than what I was doing currently. My armory can be found here (ignore the lack of enchants, I am currently broke/waiting to upgrade a lot of my current gear). Thank you in advance!

You want as much crit as you can get, but the ideal number I have seen is 40% buffed. At your ilvl and gear, it probably will be the best to play frost until you hit around 520-530. Then you might be able to stack enough crit.

 

I ran you gear through AskMrRobot and gemmed all your gear with Smooth's Suns Radiance besides the Meta Gem Slot. Reforged to the correct haste cap (5036) and your gear would have 31.60% crit.

Should I prioritize the 5036 soft-cap over more crit?

No, Crit always prioritizes over haste.

 

What I do is, stack as much crit as I can. Then if I am over the hit cap reforge it to haste to cap then mastery.

Based on Mr Robot, you scoore vs specs...

Frost 171k
Arcane 176k

Fire  198k

 

Actualy, frost is your worst spec, fire is best.

 

Fire have always been my best spec from 463ilvl to 517ilvl right now, and still did try all other specs and I pull much much more as fire. (from barely 80-100k dps to 130-200k dps) Okay maybe I'm not good with other specs but Mr Robot was still right.

I am not sure how this fits into the topic, but I will answer.

All specs are just as good as the player who plays it. If you are professional with frost, but a bit slacky with fire, then you'd probably want to stay frost.

But if you can do well with fire, why wouldn't you switch? Truth to be told, I always hate to tell people that you should switch to this and this. They should try it out themselves in LFR, practice and eventually they might become better or they will see: Nope... This is not good.

Also to note, the numbers from AMR are not dps.  It's simply a numerical evaluation of the stat weight multiplied by your total statistics per category and then those values cumulativley added.  AMR does not do any sort of dps simulation except in the broadest sense of statistical analysis.

Frost 171k
Arcane 176k

Fire  198k

 

As Oltier stated, play what you enjoy.  I can tell you now though, if you don't have Cha-Ye's Essence of Brilliance, you are very likely going to have a dps loss going to fire.

How did you get this result? I would like to see what it says about my spec's.

Ah cool I sussed it, you just click the "my gear" or "optimized" tab and your numerical evaluation is under the said tab, cheers.

      Hello, 
      I am concerned that I am severely under performing as a fury warrior. I can manage to parse typically in the 80s for almost every fight in heroic ToS with a few exceptions: Mistress, Host, Avatar. I'm currently 933 equipped and I'm not at all concerned about my stats... I know I should and could be parsing in the 90s. But I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. 
       
      My opener looks something like this: Charge, Pop Moonglaives trinket, Pop all CDS, Raging Blow, Oden's Fury, Rampage, then start normal priority rotation: Enraged RB>100 rage Rampage>RB>BT>FS. 
       
      I have recently discovered that I have been doing my execute phase entirely wrong. I just went and tried first two bosses of heroic ToS again. Parses went up slightly... Goroth: 83->89, Inquis:84->90 but still not where I need to be. 
      Another think I'd like to mention is that I try to prioritize Enraged RB @100 rage before hitting rampage. According to Kelade (one of top fury warriors in US), this is 100k dps difference. Although at times I find myself in an awkward situation where I'm at 100 rage with RB on CD and I literally have to wait a whole global to hit it... I'd like to know how to make that stop lol. 
       
      Last issue I'd like to bring up is this: Most of the time not all my CDs will line up perfectly together... BC, glaives, OF will be up but Avatar will be down. I'm slightly confused about when to use All/some of my cds... especially on fights like heroic KJ. Fights like Harj and Miss I'm confused about if I should hold all my cds for adds or blow them in the beginning along with prepot... I feel like prepot is a total waste without cds...
       
      Below you will find the link to my armory and logs. Please Help me. I need to be parsing much higher than I am. My guild is doing mythic and I don't want to be the one holding us back.

      I've been playing a hunter for as long as I've been playing this game.  And for the first time in raiding, I feel like I am not doing my best and I cannot figure out why. I look at second by second rotations of top parsing hunters. In the past I was the one helping others out and writing small guides on forums...now I'm the one asking for help. 
      Here is a link to Goroth Mythic (my hunter's name is Mezäsu):

      I am very open to criticism and any help anyone has to offer.
      I tried going into the Discord to ask for help there but was not able to get a word in (as the helpers were busy with other people). Hoping I may have better luck here.

      Hello! Just another desperate warrior, seeking to improve in any possible way!
      Im Seagaard, from Ravencrest: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/ravencrest/seagaard
      Im struggling doing as much DPS as i would want, and i am looking into possible changes. I know a 4 set bonus will be an obvious improvement, but i just dont think that is the only thing that makes my dps lack. 
      Here is a log of me wiping (alot) with my guild on Avatar.  https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/K6XLCHaAvZ2r7G1y#fight=3&view=analytical&type=damage-done&source=1
      I know its not much, but there is a couple of good tries in there. 
      Any help or criticism is appreciated :)

      Hi, I have a problem with my frost mage. I'm pissed, because  I really don't know how  I can improve my dps. I know the rotation, I've watched many guides and my dps is still low.
