Arcane Mage Trinkets

90 Night Elf Mage
I recently purchased Blossom of Pure Snow to replace Flashfrozen Resin Globule and noticed a HUGE dps decrease. I went from 75-85k dps on average, to 65-70k dps, and from 100k with time warp popped to only 80k. Is this normal? I know the crit isn't all that useful for arcane mages, but this drop in dps seems a bit ridiculous.

Measuring your dps by popping all of your cooldowns during a 1min encounter is not an accurate measure of dps.

If a simulator tells you an item is better, it's because it has been run through several thousand iterations which simulate several minute long encounters.

Your anecdote sounds incredulous. Provide us some logs, then maybe we can help you.
