Cone of Cold

8 posts in this topic

This is going to seem really silly but... why are mages using glyphed inv_glyph_majormage.jpgGlyph of Cone of Cold on Garrosh, could someone explain? And what/who are you using it on?

If you can get close to the adds during p1, as frost make sure you have the 20% + pet nova. Now laugh as you jump on the meter.

Firstly, with 2pc bonus you get a 220% damage boost overall on Cone of Cold.

As Lynx said if you can stay in melee range during p1 (I haven't tried it before, so it might result in baaadd Desecrated weapons), you can use CoC on CD ton the adds and climb the meters.

 

Secondly, during annihalate phases: it's useful on adds in 2 out of 3 zones. and you can use CoC on Garrosh if you have to move and by bad luck you don't have ana FoF or Bf procs.

Other than that... I can't really imagine any other third glyphs to be useful.. Maybe Rapid Displacement... :D

Last I calculated, all it takes is 2 targets for CoC to be worth the GCD with the glyph + 2pc frozen thoughts.

 

So it's more useful than people are willing to admit.

 

Combine it with shatter and it's just ridiculously good.

I would like to know if i should use coc when not glyphed ?

 

I'm typically on engineers duty so I glyphed Rapid displacement to be able to get to it asap (we put the desecrated weapons at the bottom of the throne). Other glyphs I used are Ice lance split and icy veins. So, I don't have coc...

 

Like I said, i can't be in melee range in p1, so my question is only for transition phase. should I use unglyphed coc on cd or only AE for the 2 realms with aoe?

 

I guess you never use it outside this phase?

Don't be on engineer duty.

 

Mages are -the- worst class for this. Yell at your raid leader. I really, really mean it, you lose about 1/3 of your DPS for the overall fight just by being on engineers in phase 1. If your raid leader disagrees, have him contact me and I'll explain why a mage on engineers is the worst raid leadership decision in all of WoW. Even worse than a moonkin on strider duty pre-nerf Vashj.

 

And I use glyphed CoC on almost every fight. It does more damage than ice lance w/o FoF and is great while moving.

what's the 'best' class for engineer in a 10man raid with Spriest / Lock / Mage as caster then ?

 

On the other hand, i don't really care for rankings since i don't play a hardcore guild anymore and I don't have the gear to rank. so yeah my dps in P1 is freaking low, but who cares? I mean, the dps in P1 does not make the kill, it just make you close to the kill faster wink.png

Hunter is best. Followed by warlock, then elemental shaman, then moonkin.

 

Shadow priests and mages are the worst. Fire mages are better than frost, and arcane is like trying to sink a battleship in Panama with a torpedo you have in Alaska.

      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

      Right, so today Kil'Jaeden's burning wish dropped for me, my 3rd legendary.
      I have Shard of the Exodar and Cord of Infinity currently - and with the 7.2 changes to Cord of Infinity I don't know what to do/pick/run with?
       
      Is Burning Wish still going to be BiS with 7.2, the changes to Cord of Infinity on PTR are pretty awesome, and as for Shard - two Time Warps per fight is pretty awesome too.
       
      So, hence my dilemma lol...
      Forgot to add, I play Arcane.

      Ok so raiding in guild, on Star Augur Normal im struggling to hit and stay consistent at 300K, yet when i did LFR i did 500K+ (lowest i went was 450K)
      Not doing anything different and its been like this with the other bosses. Followed the rotation guide and everything i'm doing is right, checked stats etc and they are right, but still struggling to get decent DPS.
      In our logs i am always in the grey (meaning im not utilising stuff more) but yet i have no idea how to change this as i am literally using cooldowns when i can and also doing my burn phase and conserve phase when i need to.

      Arcane is a long standing guild based on the Arathor/Hellfire server. We have a strong core group of raiders and have made quick progress advancing to fully clearing both Normal and Heroic Emerald Nightmare and also Normal and Heroic ToV. We are currently progressing Heroic Nighthold where we are 6/10. We have also spent time in Mythic EN clearing 3/7 bosses. As of right now we are seeking both ranged and melee DPS to help make up our numbers to help out in completing Heroic Nighthold, assist in future Heroic Raiding and potentially be willing to join up and run Mythic raid content.
      Our guild is what the title says, Semi-Hardcore Raiding, we make sure to have fun while we raid whilst maintaining a serious attitude when needed to take down bosses. We have three raids nights, Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 8Pm till 11Pm Server Time and we do ask that you sign up to the raids you can attend in advance. Our group aims to do the best we can in clearing the current content of the game. This means our current goals are to get all Heroic raid content on farm whilst tackling Mythic content whenever we feel able.
      Outside of raiding our guild regularly runs Mythic Dungeons, Keystones and other PvE content together, spending time farming old raids or clearing group dailies alongside even the occasional BG or Arena run.
      The classes we feel our raid team is currently lacking would be
      Death Knights of either DPS spec Retribution Paladin Elemental Shaman Druid of either DPS spec If you're looking to join us in part of our raid team we do have some requirements:
       Basic knowledge of raid bosses in advance of the raid. Try to know roughly what you'll be doing in a fight before we get to the boss!  An average Ilvl appropriate to the current content. Several of our members are happy to assist you in getting your Ilvl up whether its quick Mythics or joining our raids to get some easy loot.  Teamspeak 3. We use a TS3 server to communicate and co-ordinate together to take down bosses. You are in no way required to talk however we do need you to have the software to listen  Be ready to raid. Bring pots, runes, flasks to the raid along with the correct gems/enchants on your gear. (We only ask this for Heroic Progress/Mythic and even then, are completely willing to help out.) These requirements may seem steep to some however we are willing to help even players who have only raided LFR to take their first steps into the raiding scene. As long as you've got a brain and can listen then we are happy to help!
      If this sounds like something you'd want to be a part of or you simply have more questions feel free to shoot a mail to Eldadin in game. Alternatively you're more than welcome to whisper me/add me via Bnet at Elderran#2439

      Hi All,
      In the arcane mage guide it says: “Cast Arcane Explosion if you will hit 3 or more targets.”  Yet I find think the breakpoint is in fact from 2 mobs.
       
      By my calculations
      ABlast = 192% (+6% for weapon talent) of SP in 2.25s = 92.7% spell power /s
      AE = 75% (+ 9% for weapon talent) of SP in 1.5s (since it's instant) = 54.4% of spell power / s.  Double that for 2 targets and you're at 108.7% SP/s >  92.7% spell power /s for ABlast
       
      Both are equally affected by arcane charges and both have the same mana / s (2% mana for AE in 1.5s vs. 3% mana for ABlast in 2.25s).  Also in the conserve phase you’re doing 4 AC arcane barrage more frequently as you build through stacks quicker, which is great since ABarr hit's hard.   Finally those lucky kilt owners will mana up faster.  So lots of reasons to switch to AE from 2 mobs, assuming you can get in range.
       
      So unless someone sees a flaw in this I think the guide needs to be amending
