    Default 1.3 Mage dps (SC/Ele AB BS Rotation)

    My stats atm is 1181 SP 672 SC and 250 Focus. Unbuffed before Pillaging Stone.

    (03:20) Warmaster Galenir: 18408 Kyranda-Arctic Blast-8409 | Kyran | 1719 | Equal | 1448 | Pulu | 1435 | Unico | 1432 | Fleme | 1348 | Gheed | 1317 | Liddi | 1287 | Arand | 1230 | Glore | 1206 |

    Damage breakdown: http://oi54.tinypic.com/200790w.jpg

    I would like to point out that I had to end the parse manually because it bugged out. Have a look at this picture: http://oi52.tinypic.com/23ma7x4.jpg

    And If I were to take my damage and divide it by the fight time act shows in the above picture I'd get 343704/194 = 1,771 DPS.

    Now I can't judge myself since I'm biased but is that a fair calculation? At the end of the day I'm just trying to show people that great DPS is still possible.

    With best regards Kyranda

    Very impressive, the only thing that can be said about it, and I hate to nitpick, you were a bit lucky with the AB crit rate, but this is definitely the dps we can expect if Trion does indeed fix BS =\
    Very nice parse =)

    Thank you for testing Coldhearts rotation and proving its effectiveness. With that being said, I still can't shake the defeated feeling I get for rolling a mage. We are fubar. We mages jump up and down for breaking 1700 dps with a relatively complex rotation that requires a good amount of micromanagement, when Rogues jump up and down for breaking 2k dps with a 1 button spam..... Cmon really? To even pull good dps we have to roll a spec that is a gimmick spec... Sorry, but good job Kyranda.

    With a good rotation and the right buffs I think its pretty common to get a 100% crit rate on AB, at least so far since Ive been running the same spec thats what I'm seeing.

    Before trying Coldheart's rotation I was useing a variation on DeadlySights rotation but with a few tweaks and I've got to say that while mine was easier I did get alot of halfcrits with AB but since switching to this rotaiton I've seen ONE halfcrit and that was on Duke.

    Neat result indeed: Fingers tangled into an awkward pretzel shape.

    What i want to point out, why do mages have very very very complex rotations to keep up the dps, and all other classes just spam 1 macro?

    In my understanding, if im going to use such a rotation, i should be atleast doing more dps than others smashing 1 macro...

    Dont know how Trion figured out that this balances the game? you really think a warrior should out dps a mage? (wasnt that the issue b4 1.1 when warriors got nerfed and mages got buffed?)

    And the next question is, how many mages can you have doing this rotation on one target? It's my understanding that AB/BS rotations don't stack.

    One mage doing 1700+ dps is great, but not if it makes other mages trying to use this rotation redundant.

    how many dps mages are there in a raid anyway, no more than 5 mage spots id imagine, 1 chloro, 1 archon, then you can have 2 BS dps, and say 1 necro/warlock or something. not everyone wants to play this, and its not the only dps option now.
