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?
So getting everything in order for raid time, food and potions are a bit of a brain tease for me.
Ok so tables give 200 main stat (Dex,Int,STR, ect)
‘Best food’ gives 375 secondary – Haste,Ver,Mast,Crit, extra dmg
So what’s technically better from a flat dps/healing standpoint? Boomkin aside, what is the most ‘optimal’ food to be packing come raid time?
Potions and prepot:
So I assume melee uses ‘Potion of Old War’ and ranged uses ‘potion of deadly grace’, even healers, prepot? I can’t see any other way of doing it.
Also tanks – not too sure you’ll require the unbending potion pre-pot, think they should go for old war too?
I have played a PvE Fury Warrior for about 2-years and am only an average player. I recently got 4-pieces of Tier-17 equipment and decided, using Baleful gear and Profession crafted gear, to get my gear stats to the soft caps of CRIT=>25% and HAST=>11%. When those soft caps were reached, every stat improvement remaining to me went to MAST. That included anything that WAS NOT needed to maintain the above listed CRIT and HAST stat caps: enchants, gems, food, flasks and potions. My total damage and dps in dungeons and raids has gone up by 15% over the course of the last 7 weeks. Blizzard seems to have made my stats SO COMPLICATED. And Icy Veins needs to get with the program and update its advice. My Fury Warrior is no longer CRIT, CRIT, CRIT.
Is it ever worth using different food based on the encounter, or should we always be using Mastery? I say this because Haste is slightly better than Mastery for AoE situations iirc, so on constant AoE fights such as Iron Maidens I wonder if it'd be better to use the Haste food. Also Multistrike is marginally better than Mastery for pure single target, so same thing there with a fight like Gruul.
