Got my 8.5 chest piece via tokens finally. Hopefully I'll be able to get at least one more piece of T8 drop in Ulduar either tonight or tomorrow, and then save up for the head piece.

25 man hardmode Faction Champions down with 1 attempt left. It has been a while since a fight has made myself and the other officers bang our heads against the desk so much.

Grats on that! My guild just recently downed the regular 10 man version after several tries, so I can only imagine how difficult 25 man hard mode would be.

Grats, I'm still waiting to get my first piece of T9. Then again I didn't raid for the first 5 weeks of T9 content so I missed out on quite a few badges/trophies that others have been collecting. That and it is impossible to find a VoA group for some reason on my server when I actually want to raid it.

I just got my first piece of T9 on Friday too, my guild decided to start doing VoA runs on Fridays before Naxx, and I decided to tag along since I hadn't gotten the new boss yet. I was the only mage in the group and the T9 gloves dropped. =x

Love to see the mages finding their way in the top of damage-list again, where we belong!!!

Yesterday's raid (25-ToC, VoA and Onyx) I did a dashing 72% crit on my fireballs :D

Only thing what kept me from leading the dmg-list is a stupid death (I blame the healers haha)But us mages must love the floor by now, it has become one of my best friends ^^

But the chest is the weakest piece of the set! Would have been better off with Merlin's robes or such. -- edit nm, mis-understood (thought you got a the tier chest piece). Grats on those sick robes.

**** Toxicity, I just looked at your gear and I'm drooling now... No wonder you did 14k dps with 2800+ sp. Mine is only about 2100 sp and I do a measly 4k dps.

Was wearing merlins for the fight Anobix, this was the upgrade from merlins. I was the only one who bid on it because the locks will use their tier piece robe I think.

Got three upgrades in ToC 10 tonight, and our guild got our first full clear too! I got Perdition, Icehowl Binding, and Leggings of the Demonic Messenger. And I've now got the third highest gear score as a result. =x I did 7.8k on the twins too, which was freaking awesome.

Hehe 804 Haste (almost 25%!) not bad for a Arcane Mage :)

Anyone knows the Haste-Cap? 1000 or something?

I think Anobix has said before that the haste cap for mages is 100%, which is effectively impossible. That said, I think that once Arcane Blast gets to 1.5 second cast time there's really no point to stacking more haste as you can't beat the global cool down. I could be wrong though.

804 Haste? **** girl. I thought I was doing good at 650 lol.

Yeh, manaflow goes quick with that much haste ^^

So gotta find a good balance of Haste, SP and Crit. (hit is capped, but thats eesy with arcane)

Btw, I know my name could suggest another thing, but last time I looked I was a bloke :)

Ha, whoops. Sorry about that. :-) I'm actually having issues staying hit capped myself, without using the big hit trinket from Auriya or whatever her name is, from Ulduar. I hate using it because my other trinkets are so much better dmg wise. I think I'm probably going to just abandon the idea of trying to save up for Merlin's Robe at this point. 3.3 is most likely a month away or so, and I just can't justify spending that much gold on the Crusader Orbs for it when I probably won't be using it that much. I'm just going to save up for T9 robes instead, they give a pretty significant amount of hit, and while the Merlin's Robe is BiS, the T9 robes are a pretty decent upgrade from the 8.5 vest. In the mean time, I'm going to switch out two of my SP and Haste gems for SP and hit gems, so I can at least be hit capped with a Shadow Priest/Moonkin in my group.

Actually it is a 1sec GCD with haste. The standard GCD is 1.5sec (correct) but I believe that haste also decreases that number all the way down to 1second, below 1second and it is a wash, but it takes some pretty specific situations to do this (haste pot, bloodlust, icy veins, and good haste gear).

Yeh Pigtails, I also rly try to avoid the Hit-Trincket... losing to much DPS as u said...

Go for the T9,5 chest yeh to get hit capped.

But I must see I looove Merlin's Robe :)
ps. the bracers a Tailor can make are also veeerryy good.

Got them both + full T9,5 set

I only want the 245 Trincket Spellpower + 150 and a new neck and I am officially done gearing hehe. (except for Heroic-gear ofc, got 1 Ring but not even wearing it cuz then I got to much hit)

Yeah, I've got the bracers (wrote a post about it a month or so ago in the WoW General forum, found them on the AH for 5g), they're pretty nice. ^^ The t9.5 robes, you say? Well, that's providing I get a trophy lol. My guild actually does 25 man runs (and we're doing our first attempt at ToGC on Sat!) so I do have a chance at them, but no such luck yet. Also, if the Merlin's Robe is so much better than the T9 and 9.5 chest, it seems more logical to spend the 75 Triumph emblems on the Crusader Orbs and get the Merlin's Robe instead of using the 75 Emblems + trophy to get the T 9.5 robe. Ah well, I only have 5 triumph emblems right now anyways, after buying the head and legs. I guess I'll figure it all out when I get there.

Busy couple of weeks.
Finally finished the Ulduar Ironbound drake.
Got Algalon 25 with supermassive achievement.
Anub is being a pain, last week was lots of dcs without being people being able to log back in right away, and this week the npc to start the event was missing and didnt show back up until after 5 soft resets and 1/2 left in our raid week. We had 50 attempts left too and only got 3 pulls this week.

Downed Anub'arak on ToC-10 HC finally yesterday. Rogue and hunter were alive, the rest was dead ^^

Anub is a ****** to fight, 3th phase is nasty, even with heroism. Can't imagine how this ****** will be on 25-HC...

12,5k dmg on Twins on 10-man, Arcane is Booming, I used to hate it, but soooo love it now.

Pulled just under 12k dps last night on twins, squeaking out the #1 spot and winning 100g. And that is without getting empowered the entire time and no bloodlust!

It's pretty fun, for my guild anyone who feels they can hit #1 damage done on the fight puts in 25g into a pot, whoever hits #1 walks away with it. Also pulled #1 on beasts. I did #1 on Jar last week, but hit #5 this time. Apparently other people besides the mages were dispelling the spellpower buff which killed my dps (I only got 1-2 stacks each time this week, last week I was getting 4-5).

I do have some trouble with dps on Anub because of the target switching and aoeing/kiting in phase 2. Our ret pally has been winning lately followed by other melée I believe. I think once we switch/get to heroic where there is a lot more aoeing then I should start rising from 6-8 towards the top

I hardly AoE these days cuz the Arcane spec has ****** AoE... Nuking just one mob makes way more dmg, except for all them little whelps at Onyxia. ^^

I leave the AoE to Locks, Shadowpriest and Boomkins.

Loving arcane at the moment :)

I beat our one remaining fire mage who is mostly in ilvl 232/245 (w/4pcT9) gear with my mish mash of ilvl 200-245 gear.

Between myself (my main is my druid but I do love my little mage) and the regular mages we have been trying to get him to make the switch. He has it as his offspec but doesn't like it so I don't think it will happen :(

I had exactly the same Kev, I hated Arcane and loved Fire.... But after some convincing arguements from these Guru's on this forum I decided to give it a try. A IMBA change that was, cuz except for making cookies and tea us mages belong in the top of damage :)

My dps went up about 2,5 k dmg per second!

Now swapped some gear around and got 890 haste, and I am so **** quick with damage these days I can't belive it myself haha

Pro's Arcane:
Imba (quick) damage, doing 7k in Heroic 5-mans atm
Need only little hitrate wich leaves more room for haste/crit
12,6k dps on Twins, who wouldn't love that! Best fire nuke I had was 9k.
Scorching still possible as Arcane, so no need for a firemage to be in raid for a scorch-*****.
More spellpower cuz of talents (about 250)
More Int cuz of talents
Usually lead the damagemeter

Cons'Arcane:
Manaflow, demands some timing with Mana-gems, using Evocation will stop dps for a while, but still compared to fire the diffrence in damage is insane.
U'll need a lot of haste, and a fire-mage prolly got gear focussed on crit.
No damage-over-time spell available (how I loved LivingBomb)

Just convince him to give it a try, and hopefully he will get excited when he sees his damage.
Dual-Spec ftw!

I think this is what he is focusing on more than anything.

His haste is actually 692 so the gear he has will be good for arcane. The last time I checked Rawr it was showing an increase of 500 DPS or more.

edit: corrected what I wanted to say

Yes, it get a bit more messy with Arcane, due to mana-regen options available. Also if I check my details after a raid on World-Of-Logs I notice my "Activity" is lower on Arcane (around 86%, but with fire it was 97%)

Although I am nuking-nuking-nuking I still loose activity on Arcane, prolly due to Evocation and I think (not sure) that Arcane Missiles take away some activity stats.

What you can say is what they told me: A good mage does Arcane, no questions asked, it's waaaay better then fire atm!

As said before: I hated Arcane as well, now I don't wanna go back to crap dps. If he get's the hang of it, I bet he'll start lovin it (I hope for you and ur guild!) ^^

Ps. His haste is good enuf for Arcane!

Yeah, he has more haste than I do (around 500 I think).

The reason fire activity is higher is because that while moving you still have ignite/living bomb ticks still going, which can hurt your dps but will increase your damage done, which is what I found is the difference between fire and arcane. I can stay afloat for longer with my full rotation as fire longer than I can with arcane just because of how my timers work out and such, that and even if my dps will be lower than arcane (except for on Ony, which is when I switch back to fire to load up the whelps and destroy the meters) but my damage done ends up being about the same. The difference isn't great enough to look at fire as the new frost spec where it is wrong to spec fire. It really comes down to fight mechanics, player skill, RNG, and personal preference/gear.

For the good of the guild (and himself) we want him to change or at least give it more of a chance. He is quite stubborn at times :)

This is me with my 197 haste and this is him. Maybe skill is his problem as I am sure he should be beating me by a country mile regardless of whether he is fire and I am arcane.

Yeah, the gear disparity between both of you is huge. There shouldn't be any contest between you two.


You do realize that your trinkets are both pretty awful right? Spirit on your boots is okay, but really I would lean towards either icewalker (if you need hit) or tuskarr's vitality for the movement speed.

Yeah I do realise that my trinkets are utter garbage :( They are just the ones that I have had since dinging 80 and the guild I am in very rarely let alts (considering making my mage my main but my current main is the only feral) into the raids. I need to go do some normal ToC 5 man to get the abyssal rune.

Regarding the enchant, no I don't need hit as I am swimming in it and I don't think (must check now that you mention it) I can do tuskarr's vitality at the moment. I need to stop being lazy and get to 450 on my profs.

Well I'm sure some other enchanter in your guild will be able to put Tuskar's on your boots if you want to get it done.

Thanks to my awesome guild got Reign of the Dead (245), then used my extra badges to just buy the 232 pants to get my 4pc (so 3x245+1x232). Here's hoping to show up some leet deeps next week.

Gratz m8! We are running this ToC-25 since beginning and I've only seen it drop once!! And I want it so badly....

But I am on top DKP-list, so when it drops, it is mine! :D

And the neck I love to have, then there is nothing (except Heroic-gear) to gain anymore, pretty goot timing that releasedate of the next patch ^^

It wasn't on my mage (which is my main so I wish it was) but I had to tank so I got it on my druid.

Earth wind and fire 10, U.S. 76th I believe.
