Making jabs at the high max hit is moderately silly, given that you could front load a on-use trinket, get a couple of stacks of amop and have it pop during a wild growth pretty easily.
When voodoo was doing max possible sicaron parses, it was all in the timing / rotation of the raid buffs that were sync'd between multiple people.
I don't know mages, and I don't know where to even begin doing the math on his parses. But gawking at "zomg, look at that max hit!" is borderline absurd.
