I've recently gotten interested in Challenge modes, I was wondering what the Best In Slot for Mages are since Items gets scaled down.

just curious, do we still use frost as talent for cm wod run? if yes then why don't stack multi and crit/vers stats on every possible gear?

and i use copeland clarity for now, is pvp trinket (int proc vers is it?) doing better?

 

sorry for asking too much

Frost is specialization. :P Most likely, yes. Has burst if needed and over all consistent. But just go with whatever, frankly. Getting gold is not extremely challenging. :P We stack MS, crit where it makes sense.

If that trinket is included in the BiS list, then it's better. Because cannot be any better ones, than the best... :P

Why are all multistrike items not BiS? For instance, Fireflash Bracers of the Relentless have only the secondary of multistrike instead of splitting it between multistrike and another secondary stat. Thanks!

Isn't this thread from like a year ago? :P

This thread comes up rather high in Google, so instead of opening a new topic, I'm continuing on this one that is already open and most of the stuff still valid WoD.

For the Weapon, isn't Warmongering Gladiator's Battle StaffWarmongering Gladiator's Battle Staff a valid due to Haste/Mutlistrike? The Honor staff also gives the same stats in Challenge Mode.

Yeah, PvP gear is completely fine in CMs. People often use it to fill slots rather than having to grab it from raids. The Baleful gear can also be fantastic, as well as Timewalking stuff. Especially if your class is fine with stacking single stat gear, Timewalking gear can be very powerful.

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/XRqCaL6jFVpW9MnG#fight=5&type=summary&source=23&view=events
      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.
