5.0.4: In reference to the Pre-Mists Raiding Period

Good morning guys Posted Image

My name is Dereck and I am currently in a position where I will be competing with a fellow raider for a core spot in Mists of Pandaria.

The way my guild is going to determine who is more worthy of taking that spot is by looking at our DPS during the Pre-Mists Raiding Period (which is from today all the way to Sept. 25th).

So, my question is simple:

In BiS gear as of 5.0.4, what spec will have a higher chance of producing the higher DPS?

I currently assumed that frost will be the PvE spec. that produces the highest DPS as of 5.0.4, so I had reforged all my gear two days ago to accomodate this change. In other words, I maxxed out my haste then crit. and left mastery to be my lowest stat.

However, as I read through more guides and forum posts on mmo-champion, people said that due to the current tier bonuses and the fights in dragon soul, fire will still be much more ahead in terms of DPS.

I really would like to know because I am confused to be quite frank - it isn't fun to keep having to switch reforges every 5 minutes because one pulls ahead of the other during one instance, then the other one overrides it in another instance.

Any stable data to confirm which would come out victorious?

I.E: If you were me, which spec would you pick for this competition?

Thank you for taking the time to read this,

Have a good day guys.

If anyone could post what it is that would be much appreciated. Currently there hasn't been any simcraft done on heroic ds fights in comparing the specs.

I would just go Fire and reforge everything to crit, after reaching the spell hit cap of 15%.

      Hi, I have a problem with my frost mage. I'm pissed, because  I really don't know how  I can improve my dps. I know the rotation, I've watched many guides and my dps is still low.

      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.
