Need some advice...

Post by Thesian » Mon Sep 29, 2008 6:59 pm

I need to come up with more hit rating, and then have a plan on how to go from there...

I've been researching gear and running numbers and I have an idea about some stuff I need, but I'd like to hear some constructive opinions on it.

My Armory link is http://www.wowarmory.com/character-shee ... &n=Thesian

I'm really looking for some good discussion on this, and not just a bash fest.

There are a couple items, the a Cloak off of Prince in Kara and a better Chest and Gloves enchant I know I need to take care of quick...

So hit me with o' Masters of the Arcane...

Thanks,

Thes

just from glancing at your gear....gem pretty much for spell hit so noble topaz or if you want to cheat, dawnstone.

MgT kael/Kara Attunemen gloves give spell hit.

CE exalted gives Asheyen's gift

Nethercore rod is weaksauce, but that or yellow gemming badge wand is another 8 hit.

Arc or BM offhand will also add a bit

Iirc sha'tar exalted head enchant also boosts spell hit

Enchant for helm is Revered with Sha'tar not exalted, you have a +8 haste gem in your belt of blasting when if your under hit could be +hit.

i suggest going for full t4 asap, get the wand from shade of aran and the offhand from netherspite, season 2 wep is easy 2 get and provides 15 hit rating, if you get your full t4 and spell hit gem it up you will get to about 140 spell hit easily, this is what im doing atm, and its working out very well thusfar.

My spell hit is maxed, or just about now. I think I'm 170 before talents.

I need a new cloak now, and I want a t4 or t5 robe to break my set bonus, so I don't gain aggro from the Self Heal that comes off of Frozen Shadowweave set.

Thoughts on that last part?

164 is cap...
It's the thought that counts, not how many people die because of it.
