Well honestly , we all saw this coming. Ensidia is the best raiding guild in the world right now. But the real interest here is the loot. Algalon drops a number of items that i believe will be best in slot for a mage.

25 Man Loot
Cosmos

Cosmos , Best in slot offhand ?

Starshard Edge

Coolest looking caster weapon out there , and best in slot.

10 Man Loot

Drape of the Messenger

Looks great and the stats are amazing.

Nebula Band

Great stats and a yellow gem slot too

As you can see Algalon is the source of many Best in slot items. So that is a little incentive to get to him. Downing him though will be another story because he is a very hard boss on 10 man and even more difficut on 25 man. I am expecting my guild to start trying him on 10 and 25 man in a month or so.

Good Luck

Ordered new Keyboard and Mouse June 3, 2009

While my router was down i hopped on another computer and ordered a new keyboard and mouse.

Keyboard
I went on Ebay and found a pretty good deal on a G15 keyboard for 50 dollars, ordered yesterday so should come by the end of the week. It has some very nice features like how it shows my Characters stats on the LED screen or how it shows who is talking in Ventrillo. There are also many other Applets that you can install for other games like Counter Strike, Battlefield 2 and Day of defeat.

Looks good and has backlighting for late night raids !

Mouse
I went with another logitech product, The MX400 mouse. Its cheaper and i realized its pointless to spend more money on something that fulfills such a simple task. All that i ask is that it keeps working and does not die like my Dell mouse/computer did.

A nice and simple mouse from Logitech

I will write a full review after i use it for a week or two.

Thanks

Sorry about the lack of content , My router died and then my mouse died. One more reason for me not to trust Dell with any of their products. Should be back and writing by the end of the week

TTW/Fireball Spec May 29, 2009

More Crit for your Spellpower

More Crit for your Spellpower

It actually is a very good alternative to Frostfire. My dps went up about 600 DPS. My gear is not even that great and i was pulling about 4.6k DPS.

Gear

Your gear should at least be best in slot from 10 man naxx. You should have around 24-26 % crit unbuffed. You are going to want to have 1700 Spellpower unbuffed. Haste Should be over 300 if possible.

Talents

Here is a good basic Spec to start from. This allows for good mana regen and allows you to hit your hardest.

Rotation
Start with a Living Bomb > Fireball > Instant Pyroblast ( If procced ) > Refresh Living Bomb

You want to use Your Gem (If you still have 2 Set T7 ) During a heroism or keep it on cooldown because TTW/Fireball is a bit mana hungry. Also use Mirror Images when heroism pops or at the beginning of a fight. Because when you chain crit for 12 three times ……you can pull aggro and die.

Other Important Info
You must to be hit capped. Having a Balance druid or a Shadow priest in your raid group is great for the 3 % Hit buff.

Aoe burns through mana fast, so time evocation well.

Have other mages Focus magic you , and then you focus magic them. There is an easy 6 % crit.

Stack lots of spell power !!!, Empowered Fire is a talent that increases the damage done by Fireball by 15 % of your spell power

Summary


TTW/Fireball is a very fun spec to play and its always fun to crit for a ton of damage and top the meters. The only bad part is it can be very gear and mana dependent. So timing your cooldowns is still essential if you want to still top the dps like you did with arcane.

This is just plain impressive

Toorc of Kel Thuzad is a great pvp arcane mage. He really blows everything up.

Emalon , The new gear check Boss May 13, 2009

A lot of us have tried him and many of us probably have failed. The reason for this is because unlike Archvon if you have a few terrible dps ….the whole raid dies because of it. Everyone should be pulling 2.5k Dps plus in this fight and know when to switch, if you don’t then enjoy the repair bill. Good luck getting any T8 from him ….the four set bonus is amazing.

New and improved Images !!! May 12, 2009

Blizzard finally fixed our mirror images so that now when i sheep something my stupid images wont go off an break it out. I hope this also applies to fights like the Four horsemen where i will have one image just go run off and attack someone for no reason. But the big gain here is that you can now use them and not break your sheep. Good job blizzard ,now lets hope this is not as bugged as Wintergrasp is.

Here is a link of whats to come, I am also interested in this new equipment manager. But i doubt that it will replace my beloved Outfitter.
