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.

EDIT: removed some unnecessary information.

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 everyone. I just killed HC Varimathras and I was surprised by my low damage. There was not second time warp because we used the first one at 20% HP but I think I should get higher numbers. Can anyone tell me what did I do wrong? Was it really only in TW? I do not think so :/.

      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?
      Thanks.

      hello, so i am following this deck - https://www.icy-veins.com/hearthstone/elemental-mage-deck and i was wondering which card i should buy next and i dont have much dust left. I need the following cards
      Primordial Glyph x2
      Pyros x1
      Arcane Keysmith x2
      Blazecaller x2
      Frost Lich Jaina x1
       
      I have 1945 dust left with the option to disenchant "Archmage Arugal" with a total of 2345, because i dont use it, nor do i know if its any good?
       
       
      I can either go with x2 Primordial as the guide says this is needed for the deck + x2 Blazecaller for late and x1 Arcane Keysmith? but then  i wont have the pyros for early or Jaina for late.
       
      Or i can go balls out buying x1 Frost lich jaina and x1 primordial glyph ? / Or just Pyros and x1 Primordial. I dont know.
       
      My last scenario is buying Frost lich jaina and x1 primordial by selling some rare cards, then use "Archmage Arugal" instead of Pyros for the time being and combo it up with AI for 2 extra cards, and hope its something good.
       
       
       
      any help is grately appreciated.

      Hey everyone - I'm coming back to WOW after a 3 year break and I'm leveling a mage (fire lvl 33) - something I wanted to do before leaving.  I have read the articles on the addon but is that it?  I'm curious  what addons do you use for leveling, mobs, dungeons, etc...
      thanks

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated. In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo
