Seeing Blizzard trying to improve our PvE dps is nice.
Seeing Blizzard give me another reason to reduce my DoT casting(replacing moonfire or starfire glyphs) makes me think they are breaking us even more to bandaid us.
To be honest, I see dropping a dot out of our rotation while getting a dps increase as a good thing. This means that the dot not normally in our rotation is suddenly a decent dmg instant that we can cast while moving to offset the dps penalty we already take during movement due to our other mechanics without clipping.
Question, I have a feeling that this might cause an infraction, and I'm sorry if it does so. Has anyone tried adding in rupture into their rotation on the ptr since the change? If so, how much of an increase is it adding if anything at all?I'm already figuring out how I want to move my talents around when the patch goes live.
How do you manage that the Tier 10 set has 0 hit rating on it, and most of the BIS ICC (nor HC) items also doesen't have a single point of hit rating on it?
Now I seriously lack hit rating and planning to buy 2 T10 parts for set bonus (together with 2 - T9 set bonus), but even if I am gemmed with +10agi - +10 hit gems in EVERY yellow socket, still only have 7,1% chance to hit, so if I loose the draneii from my group I am not hitcapped... If I change my random epics to T10 parts I loose that little amount of hit rating I have now...
Some with 4-5 parts of T10 - did you "waste" your gem slots and sacrificed them for hit rating gems or I really don't know something?
With 20% haste buff from Improved Icy Talons and another 20% haste buff which stacks with Improved Windfury Totem, in raids you could hit 40% haste. That may make a an Unholy/Frost spec or even a Blood/Frost spec worth a look..
This is the frost forums. If you want to theorycraft some absurd blood or unholy spec, go to their respective forums. What you've listed is not a frost spec, it's a subspec.
Give me a macro to use lightwell without having to move my mouse and click on it among ten people, and I'll gladly take it. :3
That aside, it might be worth it for sapphiron fight (unchained magic), although saph has been nerfed already.
But in P3, wich is the only relevant part of the fight, you need to move a lot, depending on how you manage the ice tombs and the stacking debuff.
Maybe blood queen as well, if will-be-bitten people want it.
On tear gas, it's a bit of a waste (no one dies during this). But do you mean you can click on the well while you are stunned?
In the twin valkyr fight in TOGC, i will place my camera overhead, and place the lightwell next to me, and its very easy to click it, providing that noone stands on it.
this is my armory link although its kinda useless...
i have hit the 85% passive arp cap for mm, so what now stack agi or what. normally i do my own theorycrafting or spread sheet's to figure out for myself but i have no time recently to spend any extra time on ss's.
After i stoped playing WoW for about 3 months i am now back on track and with very kind help of my current guild "planB" i got my shaman equiped pretty much in a short period of time.
I am using EnhSim and i am reading in the Shaman stickies as often as i can but to be honest right now i have the feeling that i am doing something wrong cause my RaidDPS isnt very competitive.
EnhSim gives me round about 9100DPS with my current gear which i can`t achieve even on very static encounters.
At Saurfang for example i am able to hit 8K at the very best but in most of the fights in Icecrown esepcially when there is a lot of movement i am more around 6,8 - 7,2K DPS.
I would really like to improve a bit more if EnhSim says there is room for it.
