After 30%ish crit, haste/versa usualy starts to pull over crit by a minimal amount, and they usualy stay rly close to each other, i tend to prefer versa over haste because i play at 150ping, and lusti+icyveins with loads of haste at this ping is a little hard to pull off sometimes

You should go for what will give you the most dps imo tough, and NEVER, i mean NEVER get crit above 33%, its not a " good stat", frost doenst benefit from it past the shatter cap, crit usualy loses 40-50% its value on sims (at least mine) after the shatter cap, making it below everything else by a long margin

If you want numbers here it is:  (1dps per point. Ex: 37770 dps for 1000 versa)

Stat Weigths at 27% crit

Vers 37.77

Crit 36.26

Haste 35.42

Int 24.94

Mastery 23.72

Stat Weigths at 31% crit

Vers 36.16

Haste 35.81

Mastery 24.99

Int 23.15

Crit 19.35

Stat Weigths at 33.5% crit

Vers 35.58

Haste 32.17

Int 22.47

Mastery 22.13

Crit 14.37

Just sim this - Raidbots makes simming extremely easy now and it will give you the info you need immediately. You can alter the sims as you need to for multiple targets, but Vers and Haste are pretty close normally. I'm running full Vers enchants etc. on my Mage, but that's mainly due to having 970+ item level and lots of Haste gear.

      Hello everyone,
      Last patch gave us 40% and 10% damage increase on ray of frost and glacial spike
      Does anyone know of these changes make them relevant ?
      Should frost mage play with these or one of these now ?

      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 ?
