how come Nevermelting Ice Crystal wasn't mentioned? its a pretty accessible trinket.

Wild Magic Potion + Never Melting Ice Crystal + Fight you can keep the same corruption on the boss the whole time = pure soul razing putrefaction.Looking at 70%+ crit actual (with recount and world of logs data) on Corruption

Yeah, Nevermelting Ice Crystal is actually BiS for Affliction warlocks due to how Corruption works. As long as you keep the debuff up, it will retain the original properties of the cast, i.e. it's as if the trinket was proc'ed for the WHOLE fight.

Yeah that is a gross oversight if this is meant to be a comprehensive list for all specs. Nevermelting Ice Crystal is BiS for Affliction, as others have said, outside of possibly heroic DFO/heroic Phylactery. With a friendly Rouge you can roll an 80% crit Corruption with a flat +15% damage bonus (25% if you get amazingly lucky on your T10-4 Piece proc) for the entirety of the fight.

Wait.... so corruption has the same benefits as Shadow Word Pain does in that it keeps all the [SP, Crit] buffs as when first applied if it's refreshed? this baffles me... Why then does blizz argue that SW:P cannot benefit from haste if corruption can (through glyph)? /rerolls his spriest to aff lock right away.

 nevermind my ranting. I should read all the coments below before posting. Jwee clarified that corruption does not act exactly like SW:P.

I got nevermelting ice crystal on my fourth run in PoS and frankly after comparing specs I swapped out my previous trinket, which had been an emblem purchase. Despite it having a lower gear score and putting me 40 points further away from that magic 5K mark - the simple truth is it's an awesome trinket and it's specs are really good.It's really one of the best ilevel 232 items in the game decent spellpower bonus on-equip and massive diminishing-returns crit bonus on use.I contemplated the GS hit for a bit, I know it's not all that matters but a lot of people think it is (despite the fact that GS gives no consideration to class mechanics) so being 4950 is worse in their eyes than the 4970 I had before... but my guildies are smarter than that - and when I go into a raid, I want to rip out every single ounce of damage I can - it's what I'm there for - they know that I know my class, know my spec, know my rotation and my DoT renews - and that if I take a gearscore hit, it's with good reason. So what if it means I miss out on a PuG here and there ?
