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.

      Hi everyone. I just killed HC Varimathras and I was surprised by my low damage. There was not second time warp because we used the first one at 20% HP but I think I should get higher numbers. Can anyone tell me what did I do wrong? Was it really only in TW? I do not think so :/.

      I'm not entirely sure what I am doing wrong that is getting me this result, but I am getting about a 30k dps difference on training dummy when I use a defile, clawing shadows, shadow infusion build than when I use the recommended talents. I left the rest of my talents unchanged and I have yet to see where the dps difference is coming from (arbiter or clawing shadows), but I'm very confused as to how this could happen. Links to armory and mrrobot below.

      I felt like I had a harder time keeping my disease up and using coldheart on cooldown (or rather whenever at max stacks) with the arbiter build. Am I missing some key thing or do I just need to git gud? Thanks in advance for any help.

      I have a question for Arcane mages that I couldn't find existing guides mention on any website. In dungeons, mana is not typically an issue as a healer because you can just drink/eat in between packs, I mained a healer up until now so that mindset is just ingrained in me. As Arcane Mage, would the same principle apply? Is it optimal to just forgo the conserve part of the rotation and just burn as much as you sustainably can with every  pack, since you can just eat conjured food in between packs, or should you still do conserve/burn phases similar to what you'd do in a raid?
      Thanks.

      hello, so i am following this deck - https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/elemental-mage-deck and i was wondering which card i should buy next and i dont have much dust left. I need the following cards
      Primordial Glyph x2
      Pyros x1
      Arcane Keysmith x2
      Blazecaller x2
      Frost Lich Jaina x1
       
      I have 1945 dust left with the option to disenchant "Archmage Arugal" with a total of 2345, because i dont use it, nor do i know if its any good?
       
       
      I can either go with x2 Primordial as the guide says this is needed for the deck + x2 Blazecaller for late and x1 Arcane Keysmith? but then  i wont have the pyros for early or Jaina for late.
       
      Or i can go balls out buying x1 Frost lich jaina and x1 primordial glyph ? / Or just Pyros and x1 Primordial. I dont know.
       
      My last scenario is buying Frost lich jaina and x1 primordial by selling some rare cards, then use "Archmage Arugal" instead of Pyros for the time being and combo it up with AI for 2 extra cards, and hope its something good.
       
       
       
      any help is grately appreciated.
