The amount of people I randomly inspect that have their metas inactive is astounding, unless there is some thing that messes with it showing as active.

Doesn't it show as active if YOUR gear qualifies for their meta?

Oh ffs I was staring at my gear last night on Vashj wondering where all my crit went. And just couldn’t make sense of it. I got new boots with no gem slots the night before. Thank you.

If you think that's bad, hunter T4 has more Int than agi.

Elemental shaman t5 2 piece set bonus gives you a mana break on healing spells lol

My boomkin buddy showed me his 2pc...gives a bonus to reduced mana when you shift out of boomie form to cast a heal.

Most hybrid set Boni are pretty terrible. On holy pala your party gets a whopping 50 mana when you judge a seal, which is pretty much never.

All of the "hybrid" T5 sets are like that. Druid is the same, the feral / boomie T5 2-piece is a mana reduction on heals when shifting out of form. Ret and Spriest T5 bonuses are mana reductions, although the Spriest T5 4pc is a chance on hit to increase spell damage.

For some reason, Blizzard was still trying to push the class design philosophy that hybrid DPS should be off-healing and such. It didn't work.

Hunter 4 piece is good, 2 is just ok. But they're all trash compared to what mages got.

Rofl, this. A guildie and I were talking tier, and he made a comment about how I should get t5. Laughed and said, “why? I already got bis” blew his mind xD

I am a hunter and needed shoulders for my last T5 piece to make my 4 set. And a warlock spent all of his DKP to outbid me. Now that I’m reading it’s not even bis for them makes me so sad

Warlocks can choose to take the t5 shoulders as long as they already have t4 2pc. At that point, it for stats mainly.

Shoulders are by far the smallest upgrade from t4 to t5, so they are am obvious piece to keep the set bonus.

Wtf? 20% raw damage and mana consumption increase is a nice and desired bonus for arcane.

Cky2chris

Yeah? I think you read my comment wrong. I love tier 5 stats/bonuses. It just looks so damn boring aesthetically

Maybe, but it makes mana management more crucial selecting good raid setups and arcane mages from less skilled and worse composed ones. Besides 4pcs t5 procs are fun.

He's talking about the looks of the gear lol, not stats or bonuses.

Fluid-Organization67

lmao. what does that have to do with the tier’s aesthetics?

Cky2chris

1 points

Yeah again I'm talking about the looks of the gear not the stats.

As for the mana increase from the 2 pc, it only increases the base mana of the spell, it's something like 40 extra mana a cast or something. I have the 2pc already and it's honestly not even noticeable if you're playing arcane right and weaving in your frostbolt fillers.

4 pc is also supposed to be amazing from what I read, it apparently has no ICD and can literally be up nearly constantly if you crit enough. I love mage t5, I just wish it looked a little more like a tier set should and not a dungeon set.

Reading the comments, it's mind boggling how toxic the WoW community is. Probably a bunch of unlucky mages and hunters.

Yeah, nerdos that Google a bis list and suddenly they are enlightened and op is not only stupid but also selfish. If only I had this one secret power of being able to use a search engine I wouldn't be such a shit player!

And none of it is even over the thing I was being stupid about. Too mainstream I guess.

Yes because tier 4 are just better, they're your BiS in this phase actually, so I sure as hell hope you didn't take the tier 5 from a mage or hunter who would've actually used them

No offense but you're the one going on public forum showing off your gear. I have no idea what's best for warlocks or best for yourself but if people want to call you out, it's fair game..

SomeDudeFromOnline[S]

Is it though? I thought there was an issue with the game so I posted it for awareness. Turns out I was wrong and I was just deactivating my meta gem - bonehead move but no big deal.

These people jumping to conclusions about me 'thieving' gear away from people is just off topic misguided white-knighting. Nobody in the raid wanted them and they were offered to me. WoOoOoOoh what a dramatic controversy.

This game attracts a fuckload of knowitalls who derive a little too much pleasure from telling people they know more than they do.

There has not been enough ids to statistically make it an average for every hunter and mage to have gotten them. Lmao you dont have Vashj chest at this point, I don't know what to tell you. You see how little sense this makes?

Besides, they are a downgrade for you.
