[Arcane] Changing to Arcane

Recommended Posts

Well guys i am new at Arcane! I have been play with frost for a while and i am wondering if my gear can be used for arcane or need more gear.


My armory is this one: http://us.battle.net/wow/es/character/ragnaros/Nidos/advanced


I also have in my bag this pants of tier: http://es.wowhead.com/item=99162


I think is better the pants of tier for arcane and then upgrade to level 4.


Then i have to ask.


I cast Arcane Blast at 1.6s with the current haste.


And with ther armor of Mastery i can get without any buff raid aprox 68% Mastery.


Reading a few post for caps make a little confused


First Question: I have to get cap in haste before Mastery? cap 9557??


Second Question: Cap for Mastery?


Third Question: Cap for Crit?


Forth Question: Is worth the 4 tier part of T16 or is better to get off parts?


I will post a log of my figths next time, i am practicing (dont speak very good english i am sorry) for sustain the LB and NT, and Rune of power.


I am starting to do SOO N so i am a little new and dont have a lot of gear, but i will try to get all of i can.

1. No
2. No
3. No

Essentially just Mastery > haste > crit and hitcapped ofc

When you provide logs I can assist you further

If I saw you in person, I would bow down to you for your bravery.  Good luck friend, and may the rune of power be ever in your favor.

Crit cap? *giggle*


I dump crit in to mast/haste every new piece I get. I'm just thrilled as shit that reforge is going away (although I am sure we will still min/max with gems and enchants).


As MoP winds down, Frost and Arcane gear is essentially interchangable, and with no rune (you really don't plan on picking that over mirror images do you?) it will be even moreso in WoD.

Interesting. Have you had much luck getting into the beta test raids? So far I have seen the train depot boss and the iron maidens, both of which required high mobility for survival. Also the Hydra world boss, where standing still is almost certain death. Maybe with the healers I know and trust I can make some use of rune, but I won't know that until we start raiding for real come launch.

My guild has mandatory beta raids, and I have been to most fights. Due to the fact that a) RoP is more powerful than MI for multy target even if you lose a bit of uptime, and b) I don't want to manage IW, I don't see a reason to not use RoP. And don't forget casting an instant out of RoP is not hell on earth anymore as you don't lose mana!

Ok. I guess we can "compare notes" in the xpac to see which is the best, and for which situations. Still really happy with the tomes so I am able to change talents between bosses.


Also, I have decided that alter time really won't be worth it as strictly a mitigation spell, choosing ice barrier on that tier.

Ice Barrier is a GCD :P I would give my RL a hard time for asking me to cast AM because its on the GCD!! If my raid leader didn't scare the hell out of me at times :P

Looking at the recent tuning changes, they like where Arcane is right now. How I see it, they want to bring Fire down abit and pull Frost up.

      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?

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      Anyone else receiving fear that absolutely wipes haste off?
    • By m2geek
      Right, so today Kil'Jaeden's burning wish dropped for me, my 3rd legendary.
      I have Shard of the Exodar and Cord of Infinity currently - and with the 7.2 changes to Cord of Infinity I don't know what to do/pick/run with?
      Is Burning Wish still going to be BiS with 7.2, the changes to Cord of Infinity on PTR are pretty awesome, and as for Shard - two Time Warps per fight is pretty awesome too.
      So, hence my dilemma lol...
      Forgot to add, I play Arcane.

      Ok so raiding in guild, on Star Augur Normal im struggling to hit and stay consistent at 300K, yet when i did LFR i did 500K+ (lowest i went was 450K)
      Not doing anything different and its been like this with the other bosses. Followed the rotation guide and everything i'm doing is right, checked stats etc and they are right, but still struggling to get decent DPS.
      In our logs i am always in the grey (meaning im not utilising stuff more) but yet i have no idea how to change this as i am literally using cooldowns when i can and also doing my burn phase and conserve phase when i need to.
