Use this thread to discuss the 38/28 guide I posted in the Mage DPS guide section. It's called "[1.8] Rexer's DPS Guide" because I wanted to leave in the old method, in case people wanted to reference it. Quite frankly I think the guide is useless because most people wont be able to do it while learning new mechanics, so I'll start playing with specs/rotations that are a bit lower in dps, but much lower in complexity.
With the following stats/buffs, I'm doing 2900 dummy-dps consistently, using the method in the guide (I still make mistakes every now and then).
Trinket: Abyssal Mark of Power
Weapon: Captured Tsunami
Self Buffs: Fire Armor, Glyphs, Flaring Int
Other Buffs: Cake, Heroic Brightsurge, Burning Powerstone
And no one in my party, or hitting the same dummy
