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.

      I usually sim my characters to get the best possible results. I enjoy the process quite a lot and since I reached 120, I wanted to find out the best build of the spec. (Note, I didn't want to find out what to play, but rather how my own build fares in comarison.) I rarely mind a 1-2% difference. If it goes above 2%, I really mind a change. What this thread is about is mainly to bring something in the attention of those who help making the class guides, especially the talent choices. To my surprise, I was awed to find out that certain talents outperform previous "Standard" choices in the endgame, probably due to the stat squish.

      The Frost go-to build (top dps) would probably be along the lines of <Icy Talons / Cold Heart - Runic Attenuation - Frozen Pulse - Gathering Storm - Breath of Sindragosa>. What I found out primarily was that after the removal of legendaries, Cold Heart severely underperforms at most given situations resulting in a major dps drop due to the low mastery. Gathering Storm also suffers from the same problem and most of the times, Frostwyrm's Fury is better overall. The biggest surprise of them all, however, was that Inexorable Assault overperforms quite a lot, and is the first reason why I made the topic. I then started simming with the above in mind and I came across a build that some would not consider on par with top dog builds around the meta, which is the use of Horn of Winter which overperforms both its other two options when using the Breath build. Talent Sim can be seen here. Another intresting thing, which I loved, was that the 2nd best build uses Obliteration as a lvl 100 talent and no other build surpassed it (Other than the first one, obviously). So, I encourage frost players out there to give their other, less common talents a try. To the class guide author(s), I believe that the two "underdog" talents will earn their spot in the class guides.

      Thank you for your time reading this.
