HI! I am new to this forum as a user but I have followed icy veins since I started playing wow...not so long ago ;)

 

My mage is my 1st character and the only one I actually play, I had some troubles as arcane so I turned fire and was getting decent numbers (as I was told). The thing is that I had to leave my guild cause noone was raiding seriously and I really want to get endame gear.

 

In my new guild GM made me turn to frost otherwise I would not raid with them, so I did, but my DPS as frost is not that good cause I just don´t like it, so I wanna go back into fire but 1st I wanted to check your opinions about my gear and tell me I with what I have is it viable to do it,,,cause this time I need to do LOTS of DPS in order to be allowed to remain a fire mage.

 

Here is a link to my gear and the suggestions askmrrobot made, do I follow them wisely or do you have something ot add in there??'

 

any tip will be gladly welcomed!

The suggestions look pretty good. In my experience, 38% crit (basically where you'd be at if you set up the way they told you) isn't quite enough to do great dps. I can play all 3 mage specs pretty well, though I'm no world top player by any means, and I had issues with fire with that low of a crit rating. My advice, wait til you can reach 40% or higher with optimal fire setup.

Thanks for the response, I was wondering if that 38% buffed includes only Arcane Brilliance and/or Molten Armor?? cause if not then I would get an even higher crit rate, but of it doesn't, I guess I will have to wait a little bit more ;)

You can set what self and raid buffs it uses for you; looks like the default for Fire includes Molten Armor, so I think that 38% is fully buffed.

 

If you upgrade your remaining gear, you get to 39.5% crit, which is about the point where things smooth out (though last time I played my mage was 5.2, so trust the other guys more).  I would definitely get that second upgrade for the sword ASAP, though.  Spellpower is awesome for everybody.

Yeah I need to upgrade everuthing but most of the stuff I got it this week and 1k valor point are not even close to upgrade them all (sadly hehe), I guess I will upgrade everything (and hopefully get some more normal SoO gear) and go fire.

 

Thanks!

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      CURRENT PROGRESSION: 8/8N, 5/8H
       
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING (340+ ilvl)
      Healer DPS ABOUT US
      Currently looking for a skilled and laid back Healer & DPS for Heroic and eventually Mythic Uldir.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BfA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and fill out our app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!

      Looking for a casually serious progression guild? Hordeland Security could be your new home! We started at launch, and have raided on Blackhand, Baelgun, and now Turalyon. 

      We currently raid on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00- 9:15 Central Time. We understand that no one has an unlimited amount of time to play. We raid with a goal oriented focus, to achieve AotC in current content and then progress into Mythic. We also have a few that pvp, a few more that push M+'s, and we've been known do a few mog/achievement runs.
      Interested? Drop us a line!

      Hi everyone,

      We are a guild that transferred from Alexstrasza to join the progression raiding scene as that server is very low population now. We are currently 8/8N and 4/8H uldir, and looking to move into heroics soon and mythic just after. 

      We do more than just raid, we love to do keys, transmog runs, and even some PvP. We have a large range of players from several walks of life and have a unique and fun atmosphere, we are friendly and love helping people. 

      We are looking for a few more members for our Sunday/Monday 5-8pm PST, and our tue/third 5-8pm PST. If anyone is interested in raid leading that will work too.

      We are primarily east coast based but have a plethora of players that are on at all times of day.

      Main needs for our raid team:
      ranged dps
      Healers
      Exceptional players

      Of course all players as welcome as we do other guild activities such as world PVP, keys, xmog and other social activities.

      So come join this very active guild and we hope to hear from you.

      If you would like more information please add my btag at Kaatra#5865.

      I look forward to hearing from all of you.
