Arcane mage seeking a shelter

Post  Morfesta on Mon Jun 14, 2010 11:58 pm

Character name: Morfesta
Character lvl: 80
Race of char: Undead
Class of char: Mage (arcane specced)
 
Your real life age: 26
Real Life Race: homo sapiens
Real Life Class: A boring deskjob.

 
Link to your equipment (The Armory...)?
Armory seems to be down lately, at least I cant get into my character sheet...
Lets say my GS atm is 5485, mostly emblem and ICC10/25 gear.

Trade skills: No idea what u mean by that. But I mostly earn money buy selling portals, and auctioning runecloth etc.
Ow and my profs are Tailoring and Herbing (which Ill change in Alchemy if I found enough herbs)
Talent spec: Arcane Specced 57/3/11

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you have a stable and fast (no dial-up) Internet connection?
Well, in my stables there is no internet.. I guess you mean if I have a stabile connection (with an I), then I'd say yes.

What do you expect of lazarus , as in are you joining for :
Raiding and social issues. I have seen some Lazarus guys in grps and they seem alright. Also Im getting quite tired of people leaving raids after 1 wipe on a boss in ICC. That way, I never got further than 7/12 ICC10 and 5/12 ICC25. There is always a lot more potential, if its not for those pussies crying and leaving after 1 wipe.. I mean comon guys, Raiding and Wiping go hand in hand (at least it was before WLK). I seek a nice guild where I can see the encounters I still lack, as Im a lore-addict. Im always 100% dedicated and prepared and I never leave prematurely.

If you want too aply as raider what days Can you Raid?
Our usual raids times are 8:00-8:30pm to 00:00 server time , Can you stay for those hours when raiding?
Thursdays sometimes might be an issue, but in coming months, it wont be. The times are okayish for me.

Tell me something about yourself:
Well Im a 26y old guy with the normal 26y old issues, such as "darn starting a family comes close", "omg these xmas-pounds wont go away" and "ffs why do I feel so old in woW". As I told, I have a quite boring 9-to-5-deskjob, I pay my taxes and I help my landlady taking out her garbage.

Tell me something about the (raid) guilds you've been in and the reason why you left:
Well I have quite a long WoW-history, but not on this Character.. I was on deathwing most my life on a human warrior named Aznaroth. In TBC I went pretty hardcore and the guild managed to clear all until Sunwell's M'uru prenerf. After the release of WLK I went a bit down, leveled characters was my biggest fun, thereby also leveling this mage without real raiding when 80. After a 6 month break (october 2009-may 2010), I went back, and played more or less 100% on this character, getting her shaped up into the arcane bitch she is now. I pugged more or less everything available until ICC. As you read before I did 7/12 ICC so far. Further ofcourse, I have TOC 10/25, Ulduar (also on other char), and did the both OS3d.

Do you think there is life on Mars?
There WAS life on Mars. Scientists have proven that billions of years ago water and microbiotic beings where living on Mars. Now, however its 1 dead red planet. About other extraterrestrial life in space, Im quite optimistic, tho. But in our solar system, we are alone.

Is wrestling fixed?
American Wrestling is as fixed as a premade PvP battle.

Do you know who Eggman is?
"I am the Eggman, We are the Eggman, I am the Walrus, goo goo g'choo!!!!"
(John Lennon) or (Oasis)

Are you able to post your Armory link? Show us!
Said it before... doesnt work :-|

If anyone would make you choose between a red pill, a blue cucumber, a yellow men-eating sofa and a fuxia bunny, would you turn him over to the authorities or just run away screaming?
Well, Im the addicted, horny, yellow bastard from the Sin City comics.. So I prolly will kill him, after taking over his precious belongings :-).
Xept, the bunny... People who like the bunny are just sick.
 
Thanks for your time!
cheers,
Morfesta

Hey there,

First of all nice app, it shows you put some time and effort into it.
Only fair I'll give it the same amount of attention so here are my comments Very Happy

Trade skills:
No idea what u mean by that.
- We meant professions Very Happy

Do you have a stable and fast (no dial-up) Internet connection?
Well, in my stables there is no internet.. I guess you mean if I have a stabile connection (with an I), then I'd say yes.
- We really did mean Stable

Tell me something about yourself:
..."ffs why do I feel so old in woW"...
- DW quite a few of us are older than you Razz

Are you able to post your Armory link? Show us!
- There you go: http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Draenor&cn=Morfesta

As for your char, to put it bluntly you're doing it wrong!
You're shooting yourself in the foot not speccing Torment of the Weak for example.
That's one of the most beneficial talents for dps (12% constant dmg increase on bosses) and most mage specs these days revolve around it.
Another talent you neglected to take is Arcane Subtlety, 40% threat reduction is the best threat reduction in the game atm and if you're not taking it then you're not doing enough threat (read DPS) else you wouldnt be able to keep it under tank's threat.
There are more issues but I won't get into it now.
Your fire spec is equally broken but since you're not at the gear level where it outperforms arcane I won't bother at this point.
For reference check out my Spec and make sure you understand the differences between us. (the point in Slow can be moved freely though).
Alternatively, go read ElitistJerks.com.

Spec aside, you're way overcapped on hit.
You got a bit over 17% (the raw unmitigated cap) but you have 6% hit from talents and assuming a SP or Boomkin you can get additional 3%. So you should be aiming for 8% (or 11% to be on the safe side - but for that can always swap a trinket).
Now granted you don't have much choice in raid gear yet, but using Shard of the Crystal Heart when you can farm Abyssal Rune for example is quite a waste.
Using the higher ilevel item isn't alway the best option. So if you have say ilevel 245 items without hit they're probably better than the icc hit gear you're currently using. (GS crap won't work on us m8, we expect useful items on your char Razz )

I wont comment on mp5 gear and such (cough MH), but if possible you should replace that with something more dps oriented of same or greater ilevel (yeah yeah it didn't drop for you yet / didn't win the roll, just keep it in mind Smile )

Ok i'm gonna stop ranting here Very Happy
I hope you wont take this criticism the wrong way m8.
I took the time to point out where you can and should improve because i liked your app and honestly think you can dramatically increase your dps output with those easy changes.
If you're willing to make these changes (and understand why they matter - not just blindly do it) msg me (or some other officer) in game for an invite.
Feel free to msg me if you have additional spec/gear questions. I'm usually on some alt so ask just anyone from the guild for me.

Cheers,
Sil.

Oh yeah and DOWN WITH BUNNIES!!! albino

OMG Im so angry!!! Why critisize my perfect build, and imba gearz0r??!!!1!
 
Nah, seriously, nothing wrong about ciritism Smile. The things you say make sense.
I leveled and started to raid in the stupid fire spec, henceby using lots of hit.
Thats the reason I have so much gear, and yes you are right.. I should replace that trinket.
As for certain talents I use. I thought bosses are immume for snare and slow, so I didnt use that talent. But they arent (only for the slow effect), okay Ill respec asap.
 
Thanks for you fast comment, mate. Ill catch you in game, just have a yellow banana.

Well, I can't check the Armory atm (as I'm at work) to look at the gear / spec, but I certainly liked the rest of the application. It's a refreshing change to see someone who's obviously taken a lot of time over their application, has a readily apparent sense of humour, and it's ages since I saw a good mage application.

Oh, and anyway, what's wrong with fire builds!

[Edited once I got home and looked on Armory]

Gear looks decent enough, although I agree with Silun that there's far too much +hit on there at the moment, especially for your arcane spec. That'd soon get sorted when the 232 chest is upgraded and you change your second trinket. On the subject of the trinket, just because what you have is a 245lvl doesn't mean it's better than the 200lvl haste trinket from TOC5 normal, or the 200lvl mirror from heroism badges. Remember, gearscore doesn't necessarily reflect whether an item's better than a lower level one for your class / character. If you're staying arcane then haste is always nice.

One thing I was going to mention was that your Sons of Hodir rep isnt exalted yet but, judging by your current shoulder enchant, you must have another character that is and has sent it to your mage so that's fine.

Certainly looking at the Recent Activity and Raid Achievements etc you're clearly making good effort to gear up your toon. It's nice to see that you're still going back to TOTC10/25 too... goes to show that you're keen to raid anything, even on small chances of upgrades.

Looks like a good one to me, Silun.
