Nov 11th 2009 8:18PM Geeze, I totally agree with Neirin up there, I have had ENOUGH with this huge amount of hit on Caster.DPS trinkets. You wanna know how many raiding players are already hit capped and have NO NEED for it? 100%. Every. Single. One. Of. Them. Hit is plenty abundant on gear, gems, and enchants, it just uses up valuable itemization points on trinkets. This is kind-of the same argument I use when my healer needs something that has hit on it. Some Warlock in the back says "that's a caster DPS item, you can't roll on it". I say "Are you hit capped? Well then, you will get just as much usefulness out of that hit as I will".
Also, why the hell do they keep putting on-use effects on trinkets? Proc effects are so much better for sustained DPS, and god knows my mage needs ANOTHER offensive cooldown to balance. Why do the healers get an awesome proc trinket, but us tanks and caster dps don't? Well, hopefully something better will drop in IC.
Oct 22nd 2009 8:16PM You know what this article is now going to make me do, don't you? I am now going to have to log onto my mage, and see where I land if I just Slowfall off of Thorim's Peak...dear god, I hope I don't run out of Light Feathers.
Joking. Ha, you thought I was serious. Of course, I have the Glyph of Slowfall, I'm not gonna run out. BRB.
Oct 7th 2009 11:38PM Actually, I think you MAY be reading that wrong. It says "grants 12% haste", not "increases your haste RATING by 12%". As such, I take that to mean that it will actually decrease your casting times of spells by 12%. On a 2.0s Arcane Blast, that would decrease the casting time by ~.2 seconds, which isn't bad considering it proc at the start of every rotation (ABx4, Mbarr).
Also, the 2pc bonus seems to be pretty awesome as well. Basically, they are giving us a second Arcane Power, except for its got a ~2-minute CD and doesn't increase the mana cost of spells. Imagine, its AoE time...Mirror Image+Arcane Power+Trinkets+Blizzard = 35+% more damage without having to worry about aggro. Epic.
