Working on heroic Elegon tonight:
10/24/2012 07:18 PMPosted by PillarhumpinDo you think its worth removing glyph of combust n use FFB > fb for fire? or with new nerfs to fire comming up just ditch it and start gettin use to frost. I've always been a fire mage (unless needed for certain bosses) so I'm kinda reluctant to go frost but I will if its a certain increase in dmg.
Audacity, Did you used to be human, on Anetheron? Or have you always played on Mal'Ganis?
10/24/2012 09:28 PMPosted by DeerdeVery impressive, watched you on the first two bosses. Your UI is clean and crisp, could you go into your set up and add ons?
10/25/2012 04:01 PMPosted by FaqihaYeah feel free to ask questions in stream. Frost is very good right now, but fire will outscale it eventually :(
At what point does Fire overtake Frost?
Waiting for your vid to load.
According to raidbots highest dps on Feng for any class is 114k. (A feral druid did it.) Best fire mage parse is 109k. Top frost mage parse is 105k, that must be yours. So far as I am concerned, your parse proves that frost can compete at the highest levels.
Are you using nether tempest exclusively as your bomb? How do you keep track of it on multiple targets? Is it really that much better than frost bomb?
I would like to hear more about your UI setup. IMO the stock UI is completely inadequate for dealing with stuff like invocation, and your superb setup goes a long ways towards minimizing information overload while at the same time telling you what you need to know. I love what you're doing here from an ergonomic standpoint, it is so efficient.
Edit: an EU frost mage named Sash just posted a 109k dps parse for this.
The problem I'm having with nether tempest is telling when it has expired and needs to be refreshed. Especially on a mob that's got a bazillion debuffs. Not sure how you do this without an addon. With frost bomb you know when it has run its course as it will automatically give you a brain freeze proc.
This becomes even more complicated when dropping on multiple targets. What am I missing here?
Yuki, you have my respect for being able to post competitive parses with invocation without any addon tracking the buff. I flatly couldn't do this. It seems difficult enough to manage even with something like weakauras. I rapidly run into information overload if the buff information isn't being conveniently tracked. I suspect this is happening with many more average mages (and I am an average mage.)
