Infraction: Long terrible post
Message to User:
Look at the other posts on this forum and do like they do. Your post is full of terrible mispellings and abbreviations and it doesn't really seem to go anywhere
When u try to evaluate mage dps, everybdy should consider whole factors effecting it. For instace everybdy says 10/48/3 cookie cutter built can be the best one in raid dps, especially for single target fights. On the other hand, that built also the most problematic one in terms of threat creation. A fire mage w/ tailoring spec can hit 1100 fire spell dmg easily right at the beginning of his end-game raiding life. But his guild tank may not be as luck as that mage. So as a deep fire mage if u have to slow down ur dps, or cast invisibility spell to dampen ur agro, can we still say this built's the best dps spec for mages?
As we all know, blizz nerfed MSD and Capacitor because of arcane mages. Even if its explaination says MSD has 5% proc chance, i got 5 procs in a row many times while i was casting arcane misl. That gem's feature shines w/ arcane misl.; especially when it procs w/ clearcast at the same time. In 2.5 secs casting time, i saw more than 10k damage w/ full raid buffed and capacitor equiped, plus arcane power in use.
I dont have any t5 piece atm but i have 950 sustained dps in almost all single target boss fights, like Void Reaver, Karathress or Gruul. My record's 1050 on a single target long fight (Karathress). 7-10% of my dps comes from Capacitor and now blizz nerfed it. If i keep using it, its contribution will down to 5-7% probably. I cant saya precise data for contribution of MSD, but as far as i can see it helps damn a lot for arcane dps. My spell rotation's ABX3+Arc Mis+Fire Blast. Everytime either clearcast or MSD procs i was casting arcane misl. This's my guess but i think MSD was affecting my overall dps by 15% or maybe more and guess what, Blizz nerfed it too
So from now on, is there any way to keep my dps in same lvl as it's before? I dont wanna give up arcane spec because i really like its 40% threat reduction. Also deep arcane spec gets huge benefit from raid buffs like blessing of kings, mark of the wild. Stats which u gain from these buffs also increase ur spell dmg too. Arcane mages dont need a fragile pet like frost mages or dont need to wait till 20% for shining of their dps. From the beginning of fight to the end, arcane mages keep their dps up w/o worrying about their agro, pet or boss's health situation.
So what u guys offer to arcane mages for keeping up their dps after 2.3 patch?
