I was able to view all ticks, and as seen on above only the 3rd cast generated 5th tick. Did many 5 tries tests, some of them had 2x5 DS ticks some had 1x5 DS ticks. It can't be visual issue because everything is written in combat log either lag issue.
hey there, just wondering after several wipes on arthas 10man, how often IA actually get triggered, just forgot to track any combat log. just played with this specc Click
regards to watching my buff bar it does not seem that IA is that much up, so maybe a spec like that is better for arthas: Clack?
okai just found a mage on wol who speced 3/3 IA and it seems on a 12 minutes fight on arthas 10man he just has a uptime off 33% on the whole fight (but with a disc priest, i just aint got this on in 10 man nor in 25) im probably bad in maths, but i think if he got a 33% uptime with a disc priest, for me its just not worth to put the talent points into, is it?
First time posting, and i just had a few questions. yes i realise that these have probably been answered earlier, but tbh i looked for about 30 mins and couldn't find a clear answer with numerical answers.
1) 2pc vs 4pc - I'm currently using 2 pc (helm and chest) with plaugebringer pants, soon to be gunship gloves, and horrific epaulets.
2) lighting shield - i decided to drop some mana reduc talents and get imp shields. on fights like BQL and marrowgar and other fights that trigger lighting shield. is it worthwhile to refresh lightning shield all the time?
3) totem slot - i know the badge totem is bis. but once you get 5 stacks is it beneficial to swap to totem of hex for ~20s of dps with extra sp on LB? this does invoke a gcd though.
4) haste - i know haste is good, but im at the point that with lust my LB's are very very close to 1s. if i had to guess, lower cast times outside of lust is greater then a lesser effect of lust during only 40s of a fight.
If anyone can help me out with some factual answers on these i would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
I am wondering if any frost mage ever had to do the job with the kinetic Bombs at the blood prince encounter.
As the hunter can count on the help of his pet, i was thinking that a frostmage with his waterelement may be as viable?
Hi im not sure where to ask about this however i have found a macro for balancing dodge and parry which is nice however it does not take -20% dodge into account from icecrown citadel. the macro looks like this.
/script DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("If ratio above 1.88 start getting Parry. Currently at: "..string.format("%.2f", (GetDodgeChance()-10)/(GetParryChance()-10)))
If your ratio of Dodge to Parry rating is above 1.88, you can start picking up Parry gear to balance them back out, or if not, keep working on your Dodge rating.
Possibly because after the first rotation, Arms doesn't really have a rotation.
Unlike fury, it makes you think of what moves to use.
It really is a priority based system. If SD procs, use it. If MS is up, use it. If OP is up use it. If nothing is up, slam.
If all three are up, Execute, MS, OP.
What I have been noticing is, that since the lack of a rage cost that OP has, that it actually is a great rage increase in a pinch, especially if the boss is below 20% and execute has made you go rageless, just refresh it with an OP crit.
Oh yes, and keep rend up. That could be why. You also have a LOT of haste, get rid of it for ArP and go for the hardcap. It is quite easy to get hard capped in Arms.
You only need 84% to be hard capped in 2pc T9.
Oh whoa, you looked me up? lol so if I need 84% to be hard capped, with t9 then I'll need 90% without.. But I have grim toll currently, should i bother hardcapping? that would make Grim Toll useless right?
I'd say capping ArP possibly was the best DPS increase I have ever encountered. To be honest, you have a lot of hit, and you should either stay with the amount of ArP you have and grab Mjolnir, or go for the hardcap, probably by obtaining Deathbringer's Will. (Oh, and be consistent with gems, I see a strength gem on your weapon.)
