Which legendary should I use?

Recommended Posts

Okay, so i got a 3rd legendary for my frost mage, Sephuz's Secret, the issue is that I have the crafted legendary shoulders and Lady Vashj's gloves equipped. My stats: Crit 33%, Haste 23%, Mastery 32%, and Vers 4%. When I equip the ring, my crit and haste bump quite a bit up, and i lose a bit of mastery (because the gloves i use as a replacement have crit and haste too). Should I keep gloves on for their equip bonus, or should i replace them with Sephuz's for the stats and ilvl increase? I know my crit will be above the soft cap with ring, but i can swap gems and enchants for haste ones as noted on the guide.

~Thanks, Underclocked

Based on what you have posted for specs, crit is good, haste is way to low, should be highest after intellect, mastery is way to high, no more than 25 percent. so i would swap in legendary and switch trinkets to boost intellect and haste, your crit is good maybe a tad high. hope this helps out.

Thank you for the help, so I took off the legendary gloves, equipped some 890's with +341 crit, +853 haste, and +511 leech. I also replaced a stat stick that had int and crit with an 895 Pharamere's Forbidden Grimoire, which gives +1,158 haste. The ring I replaced with Sephuz's Secret had the same stats, but was 860 ilvl, so all it did was give bonus points into crit and haste. Before the new gems and enchants, I'm now at 32% crit, 32% haste, 29% mastery, 4% vers, and 2% leech. My intellect is 40,614.

While yes, hitting crit cap is important, the legendary effect of the gloves is huge, if you can get a good 40-50 second IV going, that's 4-5 free Ice Lances. You should be working your secondary stats on other gear around your legendaries/tier pieces, not the other way around. Sephuz is a great legendary effect as long as the fight has kicks, and is a pretty decent one even without the ability to proc the extra haste, especially when compared to the crafted effect.

The gloves are great for that, problem is, not enough haste you take longer to cast. gloves do not offer improvement until haste comes up. then will gain benefit. i agree completely on your statement about working the other stats around the tier pieces.

Your stats are looking good right now.

I do remember that it was pretty easy to stay crit-capped before Nighthold raiding, so you're good. It becomes harder to stay at 33% with the tier set. However, you're well on your way.

Though, I didn't start using the legendary gloves until I got the legendary bracers to go with them. Just get yourself a couple gear pieces to swap legendaries out, and practice rotations on target dummies until you find the combination giving you the best dps

      Hi everyone. So I've read the guide on fire mage here on Icy-veins and got some questions related to single target rotation. First I'd like to ask about the meteor. It is mentioned that meteor should be used with Rune of Power which is fairly easy to do since Rune of Power is always ready when Metor is off cooldown. However It's also mentioned that Meteor should always be available when Combustion comes off cooldown. Now Combustion has a 2 min cooldown and meteor has 45 sec cooldown. I can use meteor twice while Combustion is on cooldown. However If I use Meteor twice , It is on cooldown when Combustion is ready. Should I wait for Combustion and not cast Meteor on the second time until Combustion is ready?
      Second what I'd like to ask is about Combustion after the opener. Its mentioned that I need a hot streak before I pop It. I fish for Pyros by casting Fireball until I get a crit and then use Fire Blast. However when I get an Hot streak I'm already mid-casting Fireball. Should I cancel the cast and cast Rune of Power or should I let that Fireball hit and immediately after start casting Rune of Power?
      It's also mentioned that I need to have a Fire Blast charge always ready before going in Combustion phase. Should I save up a charge and ignore the Heating Ups I get regardless and hope for Fireball to crit twice or basically wait for Fire Blast to get another charge?
      Thanks 🙂
