Fire Mage 25% Haste Cap: Why 2005 Haste Rating?

Hello again everyone,

After studying the guides here in detail and reading about Fire Mages on the internet, there is something I don't understand.

I imagine that you are using the formulas from Elitist Jerks to compute the haste values for the caps, see there: http://elitistjerks....#Haste_and_DoTs

If I follow the formula for calculating the 25% Haste cap (13 ticks of Combustion), I need to do:

tick_speed_required = (10 * 1) / (13 - 0.5) = 0.8
then

haste_percent = 1 / (0.8 + 0.0004999) = 1.249219253581752

So I need to reach 24.9219253581752% Haste to get to that cap (according to EJ formulas). After I remove Netherwind Presence and the 5% spell haste raid buff, I obtain

haste_from_haste_rating = 1.249219253581752 / 1.03 / 1.05 = 15.50802159794282%

As far as I understand, I get 1% spell haste whenever I stack 128.05716 Haste Rating (so they say on EJ), so this means 1985.9 or 1986 Haste Rating to reach 15.50802159794282% Haste. In this case, why does it say 2005 on EJ and everywhere else on the internet, including on the guide here on Icy Veins?

I hope you can help me

I'm not quite sure but I do know that if you have two piece T13, you only need to get to 1505 haste cap due to the tier bonus.

The catch is, there are different soft haste plateaus that will give you an extra tick of combustion. Go for the lowest and if you can still hit the next one without sacrificing crit or hit then go for it.

That's an interesting question. The formulas they give on Elitist Jerks are correct, but there is one case that they do not properly mention.

Usually, when you compute tick_speed_required, you get something like 1.8345432 second and you need to only keep a precision of 3 digits, so 1.8345432 becomes 1.834; in the same vein, 1.8319999999 becomes 1.831 (and not 1.832). It's not a rounding operation.

If tick_speed_required is an exact value, like 1.125 or 0.8, you need to remove 0.001 before proceeding. Don't ask me why, it's just the way it is.

In the case of the 25% soft haste cap with Fire Mages, you need to do:

tick_speed_required = (10 * 1) / (13 - 0.5) = 0.8
0.8 is an exact value, so we remove 0.001 before moving on, which gives 0.799

haste_percent = 1 / (0.799 + 0.0004999) = 1.2507818950321319

haste_from_haste_rating = 1.2507818950321319 / 1.03 / 1.05 = 15.65250994286933%

To obtain 15.65250994286933% Haste from Haste Rating, you need 2005 (2004.4, to be precise) Haste Rating.

      Hey everyone - I'm coming back to WOW after a 3 year break and I'm leveling a mage (fire lvl 33) - something I wanted to do before leaving.  I have read the articles on the addon but is that it?  I'm curious  what addons do you use for leveling, mobs, dungeons, etc...
      thanks

      It's a few months later (what with delays and distractions and getting old and all that), but I just wanted to start by saying THANK YOU to those who helped me with amazing advice on levelling my fire mage alt. It made all the difference - you guys rock.
      I finally dinged 110 the other day and went into a few instances and raid finders with her. As a caster noob - I main a feral - there are a few things I've noticed and am unsure about.
      The guide here on Icy Veins recommends Dragon's Breath for AoE of 3+ grouped mobs. I may have overlooked something, but I can't for the life of me find anything on the *range* of Dragon's breath. The animation makes me think I need to stand right in front of the mobs to hit them, but that can't be right, I'm supposed to be ranged and standing a good bit away - aren't I?  During levelling, I've gotten used to casting Living Bomb regardless of how many mobs I'm facing. The guide has it exclusively as an AoE ability. Is that true, or is it worth casting on a single target (boss)? Does meteor "work" on huge bosses who are standing behind a ledge/cliff, in the manner of Engine of Souls (Desolate Host) or Garothi Worldbreaker? I try placing it as close to the edge of the "cliff" as possible, does that mean it'll hit the boss?

      Anybody can help with this? I'm using simcraft to get the stat priority for my MM's gear but it is giving me crazy results, not sure why. Agility=83.13, Ap=80.24, CritRating=0.83, HasteRating=46.84, MasteryRating=1.04, Versatility=217.72, Dps=297.72
      According to stat priority lists, such as the icy veins one, mastery should be the predominant stat. Now I understand that it can change depending on gear and other things, but this much???
      I've attached a screenshot wit the settings in simcraft, in case it helps.
      Can anybody tell me what I'm doing wrong? Sorry if it's a noob question.
      Cheers!

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 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.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo
