[Arcane] Changing to Arcane

11 posts in this topic

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.

Oh shit i thought I had commented.

1. No
2. No
3. No
4. Yes

 

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.

For arcane I actually plan to pick RoP!

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.

      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.

      Arcane is a long standing guild based on the Arathor/Hellfire server. We have a strong core group of raiders and have made quick progress advancing to fully clearing both Normal and Heroic Emerald Nightmare and also Normal and Heroic ToV. We are currently progressing Heroic Nighthold where we are 6/10. We have also spent time in Mythic EN clearing 3/7 bosses. As of right now we are seeking both ranged and melee DPS to help make up our numbers to help out in completing Heroic Nighthold, assist in future Heroic Raiding and potentially be willing to join up and run Mythic raid content.
      Our guild is what the title says, Semi-Hardcore Raiding, we make sure to have fun while we raid whilst maintaining a serious attitude when needed to take down bosses. We have three raids nights, Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 8Pm till 11Pm Server Time and we do ask that you sign up to the raids you can attend in advance. Our group aims to do the best we can in clearing the current content of the game. This means our current goals are to get all Heroic raid content on farm whilst tackling Mythic content whenever we feel able.
      Outside of raiding our guild regularly runs Mythic Dungeons, Keystones and other PvE content together, spending time farming old raids or clearing group dailies alongside even the occasional BG or Arena run.
      The classes we feel our raid team is currently lacking would be
      Death Knights of either DPS spec Retribution Paladin Elemental Shaman Druid of either DPS spec If you're looking to join us in part of our raid team we do have some requirements:
       Basic knowledge of raid bosses in advance of the raid. Try to know roughly what you'll be doing in a fight before we get to the boss!  An average Ilvl appropriate to the current content. Several of our members are happy to assist you in getting your Ilvl up whether its quick Mythics or joining our raids to get some easy loot.  Teamspeak 3. We use a TS3 server to communicate and co-ordinate together to take down bosses. You are in no way required to talk however we do need you to have the software to listen  Be ready to raid. Bring pots, runes, flasks to the raid along with the correct gems/enchants on your gear. (We only ask this for Heroic Progress/Mythic and even then, are completely willing to help out.) These requirements may seem steep to some however we are willing to help even players who have only raided LFR to take their first steps into the raiding scene. As long as you've got a brain and can listen then we are happy to help!
      If this sounds like something you'd want to be a part of or you simply have more questions feel free to shoot a mail to Eldadin in game. Alternatively you're more than welcome to whisper me/add me via Bnet at Elderran#2439

      Hi All,
      In the arcane mage guide it says: “Cast Arcane Explosion if you will hit 3 or more targets.”  Yet I find think the breakpoint is in fact from 2 mobs.
       
      By my calculations
      ABlast = 192% (+6% for weapon talent) of SP in 2.25s = 92.7% spell power /s
      AE = 75% (+ 9% for weapon talent) of SP in 1.5s (since it's instant) = 54.4% of spell power / s.  Double that for 2 targets and you're at 108.7% SP/s >  92.7% spell power /s for ABlast
       
      Both are equally affected by arcane charges and both have the same mana / s (2% mana for AE in 1.5s vs. 3% mana for ABlast in 2.25s).  Also in the conserve phase you’re doing 4 AC arcane barrage more frequently as you build through stacks quicker, which is great since ABarr hit's hard.   Finally those lucky kilt owners will mana up faster.  So lots of reasons to switch to AE from 2 mobs, assuming you can get in range.
       
      So unless someone sees a flaw in this I think the guide needs to be amending

      Hi everyone. I've a question, What spect should we roll for 7.1.5?
      So patch notes for 7.1.5 (November the 29th) are out.
      And I have 2 things to remark
      1.Strong buff to Arcane Mana cost for Arcane Blast has been reduced from 125% to 60% per Arcane Charge, since they are mana dependent. This does not apply It Was a tooltip bug.
      2.Almost all fire skills were buffed in damage, Fireball,Flame Blast, PyroBlast, Scorch, FlameStrike, CinderStorm,Meteor,Conflag and Phoenix's Flames. BUT Critical Mass % was reduced from 15% to 10% and Pyretic Incantation was nerfed from 5% per stack  to 2% per stack = 15%  less damage from consecutive Critical Strikes.
      I haven't done the math yet, but since Arcane has gotten a lot of buffs lately, and Fire is getting "balanced" (Since i've no idea how the patch will afect fire dps), and Frost Topping dps in rankings, and with no significant buffs or nerfs in the patch notes i suppose they will stay in tops.
      So if anyone would be so kind to enlighten me what spect you guys think it would be the best for 7.1.5 and why.
