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

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.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 5/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated. In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Hi, i have just tried out some Antorus bosses in mythic and i saw, that my logs are so.... 
      In heroic difficulty my logs are better. So I have no idea, what am I doing wrong there... As I am doing the same thing, only with a bit more tactics...
      Can anybody give some tips, on this matter?

      Hay,
       
      I seem to struggle to get better DPS. I figured out that i used chaos strike and blade dance to less. and i should use less Throw glaive and fellrush. 
      But i stil seem to have trouble getting my dps on.  Please take a look on the logs at the 14th. 
      I really dislike using the "eye beam build" (it feel slow to me) so i still use the 2221311 build.

      First off, I absolutely adore this class and especially the brewmaster theme, but I'm just not making good use of it. I'm also not very good or knowledgable at it, so please excuse my stupidity in this ramble :P
      With other tanks, I always feel like I'm in control. I have abilities that easily gather all enemies to me, but it's so different with the monk. If we're not counting the artifact weapon's special ability (since you spend at least 98 levels without it), I basically have a single proper AoE attack, being the Keg Smash. Compared to other tanks' abilites like Thunder Clap, Blood Boil, etc., I feel like Keg Smash is absolutely terrible. It has a much smaller radius, so I always have to run around and try to herd groups into tight bunches before I can effect all of them. If I'm completely surrounded by enemies within melee range, I feel like I'm lucky if I hit even a third of them with the splash, and so often I have to run around and tag drifters with melee attacks. I'm really jealous of the other classes' spells that are centered on the caster or placeable.
      Am I doing something wrong, or is this a common problem? I know I have the Provoke ability as well, but being a single target spell with an 8 second cooldown, it doesn't really help my problem much. I really want to make my monk work, but I feel completely at a loss in dungeons and raids sometimes, and I always fall back to my prot paladin just because I feel like I'm doing an awful job with my monk.
      Pleeease show me how I'm being an idiot and how the brewmaster is actually a competent tank!

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.
