Replacing Deathchill by Volde's
Return to board index
How to make up for the haste loss? I mean, I lose 53 haste rating by equipping
Volde's Cloak of the Night Sky
. Should I gem haste or do the other stats on Volde's completely make up for the loss? Currently at 731 haste rating.
Sure Rawr tells me it's an upgrade but... My haste... *cries*
I'd suggest you to spend badges on Tier items in the first place, not for this.
It will take months to get the 180 necessary emblems (it's 90 emblems for each T10 piece, right?), as I don't raid and don't do the weekly raid quest, only getting Emblems of Frost from the daily run, which I don't even do every day. Volde's is the best upgrade I could get right now, well in a couple days as I'm at 40 emblems right now. (Yes I've only gotten 40 emblems since the ICC launch. Don't laugh please.)
Yeah I can see your point now. Actually emblems cost of T10 are 95 and 60, so maybe you should consider to save some more emblems for t10 shoulders (60 badges)
But alas there's true in your words, price for whole set is really high and its gonna take a while for non raiding person like you to get 4 pieces.
Although 2 T10 pieces give nice bonus to haste, its up to you to decide, if you want to take that cloak first just gem it with epic Reckless Ametrine gem, I dont really know your spec but this gem works for most common Arcane and Fireball specs fine.
Hmm yes, shoulders and gloves do indeed cost 60 emblems each... So 120 emblems to get the first set bonus.
The problem with that bonus is, that haste buff is nice, but... Brain Freeze. It's a 15% proc, so the uptime to the buff compared to Hot Streak and Missile Barrage will in theory be really small. I've got 4pcT9 now, it's kind of hard to lose 5% crit on my 2 nukes as a Frost specced mage.
Well, its always hard to part with good old tier bonuses but it doesnt mean you have to keep T6 only cuz you used to like it.
Frost at level 80? If you're in PvP, there's assortment of pvp cloaks. If you are in PvE, consider to change spec into something more damage capable.
Yeah Frost at 80. And yeah I know everything is more damage capable than Frost these days.
It's going to look fun but I'm not playing my mage for damage. I really like the cold, the snow, the ice in real life, so I play a Frost mage in game. Has nothing to do with the race for the 1st place on the meters.
Frost is really not a problem since I don't raid with that toon (we already have like 5-6 mages in every raid and my main toons are a tank and a healer so I'm more useful in other ways) and in 5-mans I top charts anyway, doing up to 7k dps on bosses depending on procs and group setup.
If you dont play your mage for damage then just buy this cloak and enjoy, its a huge upgrade from Deathchill. Nothing to talk about really.

I dont mean to come off liek a jerk but if you dont play your mage for damage... then why does it matter wat pieces you get?
If I played like that I would most likely just go for the coolest looking stuff so if this new cape looks way better than your old one I guess you should go for it
