    Default 1.11 Dummy parses/specs

    I know mages are largely revolving around 2 specs right now and than most people are leaning towards 51Pyro over 51Ele. I for one am sick of Pyro... its been 100% our top dps since 1.5 and was close in numbers with other top specs not including the old zoomancer. I would like to see some dummy parses or ID parses to see what people are coming up with. Mostly this stuff wont matter due to SL dropping in a month only giving us 3 more ID clears.

    im parsing excactly the same, except i only have maelforge relic 1h+ non upgraded maklamos off

    have you tried flame bolt?
    considering your parse you only use LS if theres nothing else avaiable, it'd be another instant + it buffs crystaline missiles
    its average hits very slightly lower than Stormbolts 2 hits combined hit averagely

    Would either of you be so kind as to link your soul config and detail your rotation/buffs? =D

    Reading forums helps -.-


    @ Op

    Im parsing @ 4.4-4.6k on dummy with slighty worse gear (rusilla staff, maddening flame, not every cloth hexed). Spec is good for these few weeks till SL

    @Sculti no I haven't tried anything other than the regular spells and rotation for Ele. Not really caring that much about it just something to do while waiting for SL. Im getting bored out of my mind knowing its only a month away.

    Spec:
    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0z...rqrdbz.xxbh.-9

    'Rotation'
    I start off with a Lightning Strike-> Icy Carapace(be quick so LS bursts IC for the most burst you can get to start a parse) Ignite.

    From there its usually mashing my macro and weaving in CM's when they are proc'd keeping either Raging Elements or Bone Frenzy up 100% of the time *Don't overlap these two*
    Pop IE in the first 10-15 seconds roughly when an archon should have enough time to setup and pop FP. from there make sure you have either RE or BF up with IE for stacked pet dmg.
    Keep ignite up 100% like any other dot let it fall off before you put it back up for maximized dps.

    With an 11k mana pool you can only last 3:30~ give or take 10s for CM procs.

    Either way 51Pyro only parses 4600 @3m with a peak @ 2:40 at about 4.8k on the dummy but will out perform Ele in raids. Im just looking for an alternative from Pyro, something we've been running for a looong time.

    im doing pretty much the same
    you forgot to mention to use spare charge for Elemental Forces

    i would be curious how you ordered your spells in your "spam"macro cause im still not sure whats the best order
    this is the macro im running when i dont have instant CMs:
    #show Lightning Strike
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Elemental Burst
    cast Icy Carapace
    cast Stormbolt
    cast Flame Bolt
    cast Lightning Strike
    cast Crystalline Missiles

    + another without LS if im in my 1 sec GCD cooldown
    + another with Elemental Burst/Stormbolt if my Icy Carapace wont explode cause my pet goes on a critting-spree

    im still at 3/3 Lightning Strike dmg/crit and 4/5 Biting Cold, might change that to 2/3 5/5, since with Flame Bolt you rarely cast Lightning Strikes

    also why would you use bone frenzy over raging elements? cause its off-gcd?

    Oh yeah thats pretty big haha

    Only difference is I don't macro LS and Im going to add FB before raid next

    It will be:
    #show Elemental Burst
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Elemental Burst
    cast Icy Carapace
    cast Stormbolt
    cast Flame Bolt
    cast Crystalline Missiles

    Also pretty sure Im going to take the 2 out of Charged and put it into more pet HP. Found that my pet dies a lot with only 3.8k hp.

    This is why I've been playing on my rogue for the last 2 months.

    However I've heard that a very different (and welcome) spec is top dps at level 60 hence I will be returning to my mage come the expansion.

    It will be top dps from SL Launch all the way up to 60.

    Actually you want to be at least 55 to have everything you need for the spec to pull ahead...

    Even at 3x electified everything hits like a truck. I was parsing higher than pyro at level 53.

    I haven't parsed at 50/SL, cause... who cares. But trying different things while leveling my gut feeling is that deep Harbinger and Harbinger/Pyro, which are both not as point starved as Har/SC, would fare better then.
    But anyways, rambling over -- at 60 there seems to be hardly a contest, and for solo / dungeon leveling you're looking at different specs anyway.

    moving icy carapace under storm bolt and burst is better cause it ticks for longer before blowing up that way.

    pretty sure ele isnt top dps at 60

    plus hasnt it already been shown that this spec doesnt scale well at all and depends on CDs, 51 pyro or defile would seem much better imo

    Harb/SC will be no joke at 60. Harb/Chloro will be solid for both leveling and dungeons, with Harb/Archon finding its niche also.

    But for 1.11 Dummy Parsing, who cares? lol.
