The 4piece bonus sounds like the t13 bonus now but without all the mumbo jumbo of "when you have so many stacks of blahblahblah I'm not listening anymore"

No mechanical changes for Mages. Just more throughput. It will be entertaining to see what the consensus is on who gets tier first. Currently, I think it has to be the healers.

Regardless of what does, or does not occur, I'm sure that Icy-Veins will help us all get sorted and situated! Posted Image

That probably depends on what the fights are going to be all about during progression. If they're DPS races or if there are no healing issues overall and more DPS would end it all quicker, then I don't think the healers should get a free pass :P

For some reason, I'm under the impression that these bonuses are going to favor Arcane.

The bonusses of T14 of mages has chanced.first one is now arcane missles instead of barrages and the dmg of that is increased by 7%, pyroblast by 8% and ice lances by 12% (that's for 2set)

for 4set the next things chanced: increase dmg bonus by arcane power by 10% (down from 15%), reduce cooldown by icy veins by 50% (up from 45%) and the cd of combustion is still 20%

Also i wanne clear out that the t13 4th set also chances: Instead of being a fixed amount of sec per stack it's now 5%.

PS i have no idea how to make it so you can see the spells if you mouse over them :)

Thanks for pointing it out. They've been changing so often that we've kind of given up on updating those threads. We will make a batch update once things stabilize :P

Here is a question im yet to find answered...

Im a Fire mage, 489 in most slots. sha has not dropped my 496 tier for me - i have none.

with the release of HoF2 it is possible to get tier set.

is two-piece 483 better than two 489's? 8%pyro vs a decent loss of stats?

Cheers

Front page of MMO champ :P

Other than that I would suggest that 2 piece would be better than 489 gear. For me pyroblast makes up ~30% of raid damage, Increasing that by 5% -> ~1.5% total damage increase. Not to mention the potential for larger crits to improve my combustion (via greater ignites).

I don't believe two pieces having 6 ilvl higher will make up for ~2% total damage.

A lot of this will come down to testing once more and more people are actually able to attain this level of gear though. (Alternatively, if I was competent at using simcraft I could try and work it out, unfortunately, I am not :P )

not sure what you meant by quoting that? o_O

I am well aware that HoF part2 is out, hence my post :P

two set tier gives 8% pyro damage and pyro usually around 35-38% of my damage. looks like it will be better than two 489 pieces (even if they are itemised perfectly)

Ran HoF2 last night. Didnt get anything so wont be able to test :(

on a side note - that is a much harder raid to 'pug' lucky we queued as a guild and explained every fight to everyone otherwise it wouldve been a disaster!

would it be a dps gain to use the raid finder 483 set over 489s?

I play frost dps and have 3x 483 and 1x 494 set pieces but i also have a 489 i can swap for the set piece.

How much of a benefit is 50% cd on icy veins

Also whats a good haste rating to have with just some self buffs, i read earlier after 22% haste, frostbolts no longer benefit from the global cooldown reduction.

Another question what stat ratings should i use in ask mr robot, and where can i get an update list of these, do they change from patch to patch?

If it's just a matter of swapping one piece of ilevel 489 for one set piece of ilevel 483, you should definitely use your 4-piece bonus.

With the 4-piece bonus, the cooldown of Icy Veins becomes 1min30s. This is a 2% damage increase in theory.

The 22% haste is only when Time Warp and Icy Veins are combined. You can always use Icy Veins after Time Warp to avoid that, or you can use Glyph of Icy Veins.

And yes, stat weights do change. They actually change every time Simulation Craft is updated :P We are working on a feature that will make it easy for people to see stat weight values. Stay tuned!

Sorry to necro - but i cant seem to find the information I am looking for.

Frost mage.

I have 4p t14 496. last week I got 528(shoulder) & 522(legs) pieces. I swapped out two of my tier pieces(496shoulder & 504legs) for these items as the stat upgrade seemed to outweigh 50% cd on IV... *Unfortuneately i dont have the chest piece to still keep my 4set + my thunderforged shoulders...

What I am looking for is the effective haste rating 4piece t14 gives.

and thus which is better dps new gear vs. 4piece.

tia

**EDIT: more info added.

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding. We cleared through Nighthold heroic a number of months ago and need some more people in order to jump into mythic. Besides raiding our friendly bunch of members enjoy running mythic+ on daily basis, helping out with world quests among other things. Our discord is usually filled with members for daily banter and weekly fun. If you enjoy all that, you most certainly will enjoy your stay in Volatile.
      Who are we looking for?
      We're primarily looking for ranged DPS to fill out the roster. At this time we are full on tanks and healers.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - MM Hunter, Warlock and Shadow Priest but all classes will be considered
      Melee DPS - Closed
      Overall we're looking for people with a good knowledge of their class/spec who know how to improve their gameplay. Being fairly thick skinned and being able to accept constructive criticism, as well as the occasional jab from some of our more 'outspoken' members, is a big plus too.
      When do we raid?
      We raid two times a week as standard, we often have an additional raid day if necessary. See raid times below. 
      Thursday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Monday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Tuesday: 8pm - 11pm (Additional day)
      Application process:
      We believe the best way to get to know if someone is right for the guild is just to have a chat, rather than go through a long application process. So we'll have a chat, look at logs and possibly run some M+ to get to know each other. If you're interested in joining our mythic raid team, contact any of the following:
      Contact us:
      GM: 
      Xadel#2609, Xadel (ingame)
      Council: 
      Òops#2597, Drainphase (ingame)
      Passive#2900, Malenky (ingame)
      Ohajay#2606, Draconem (ingame)
      Hjp#21650, Phynn (ingame)

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      If you have any further questions please contact us at battletags: Vims#21684 Azkey#21565
      To apply please visit our guild website: http://asylum-tn.enjin.com/recruitment

      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
