Tier 12 bonus vs tier 13 bonus
Return to board index
I am trying to determine whether or not the 4 piece tier 12 bonus is better than the 4 piece tier 13 bonus for Fire and Arcane specs.
Mage T12 2P Bonus
You have a chance to summon a Mirror Image to assist you in battle for 15 sec when you cast Frostbolt, Fireball, Frostfire Bolt, or Arcane Blast.
Mage T12 4P Bonus
Your spells have an increased chance to trigger Brain Freeze or Hot Streak. In addition, Arcane Power decreases the cost of your damaging spells by 10% instead of increasing their cost.
Mage T13 2P Bonus (Haste Rating)
Your Arcane Blast has a 100% chance and your Fireball, Pyroblast, Frostfire Bolt, and Frostbolt spells have a 50% chance to grant Stolen Time, increasing your haste rating by 50 for 30 sec and stacking up to 10 times. When Arcane Power, Combustion, or Icy Veins expires, all stacks of Stolen Time are lost.
Mage T13 4P Bonus (Arcane Power, Combustion, and Icy Veins)
Each stack of Stolen Time also reduces the cooldown of Arcane Power by 7 sec, Combustion by 5 sec, and Icy Veins by 15 sec.
Ignoring stats on gear, does anyone know which 4 piece bonus provides better overall dps for each of the raiding specs?
Without any facts or numbers to back that up, I would say T13 4P as they allow you more uses of some nice abilities. It also is there, you know you'll get the extra haste frm the 2P and you know you'll get that time taken off the CD. But the T12 4P doesn't seem that great compared to the other.
I'm sure someone has actual numbers or something to back up my claim, I would go look on EJ for you but I'm about to leave to go see my grandmother for Mother's Day.
My old rawr i didint bother to update says
For t12, bottom (lesser) one is 2pc, the top one is 4pc.
T12 4pc beats T13 2pc. But T13 4pc is much easier to get then T12 4pc.
If you don't have access to T13 2/4pc but have access to T12 4pc stick with the T12pc, just if you're fire, don't get used to the amount of Hotstreaks that proc.
