Frost BiS List

So i have been googling and looking all over the place and either cannot find anything or what i have found is very vague and doesn't seem substantial enough to trust things.

 

I mainly follow IV for everything and while i have used Noxxic previously, i found there to be a lot of difference in opinion between the two.

 

As i have had more success by following and reading here, i was wondering if someone had a BIS list created for the frost mage or could share some guidance on what i am essentially after.  I understand with crafted pieces and the amount of secondary stats can come with gear now, i am just looking for the ideal setup overall.

 

with the priority being multistrike,crit,vers,mastery,haste, is there a specific list or just go after these stats.  I am worried if i focus too much on trying to get multistrike/crit pieces that i will end up crippling myself in other ways due to it being important to have SOME of the other stats i am assuming.

 

Thoughts? suggestions ?

 

Thanks in advance!

Actually nevermind.  You can remove this thread.

 

I see now what you are referring to and i feel dumb.  I will just need to figure out how to read it up.

 

I see the tab for Frost TV BIS - is that just suggested for that spec as i thought prismatic crystal was the best 100 tier ?

That list was created in order to provide a tool for people to make their own BiS lists. Read the introductory tab on that dropbox file :) As stat prio's change drastically per character with that tool you can make the list yourself #winwin

      Does anyone have issue where a ton of versatility gear is dropping?
      In the effort to increase my item level, so I can do heroics (i know I'm late to the game), all the higher level gear that drops has versatility, do BM hunters need versatility now or is this just bad luck?

      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.
