why is Capacitive Primal Diamond listed for Arcane Mage
« on: July 27, 2013, 07:15:36 PM »
I notice in the drop down to choose a gearing strategy it says "once you have Tier 15 trinkets and/or the Capacitive Primal Diamond haste becomes more valuable".  I was under the impression that I should be using the Sinister Primal Diamond and that the Capacitive was for Melee and Hunters.  So, my question is should I be using the Capacitive Primal Diamond to maximize my Arcane Mage's DPS or is the information on the website wrong?

The proc is worth nothing on the Capacitive. If you have your stat weights set up in such a way that you are capping haste and giving it no value after the cap, there is a chance that the Sinister will be weighted lower, since you are basically telling Mr. Robot you don't care about the proc.

If you give us a link to your specific profile, I can explain what you are seeing better. Click the "save as" button and then post the url.

Not exactly; loading up your character like that just gives us a default view.  What Rev needs is a link to a saved profile; this is a link that saves all of your stat weights, settings, etc.  It shows us exactly what you see (when I load up your character default-like, I see you 100% optimized, Sinister meta included).

On the left of the menu bar, next to Load, there's Save As - click that guy, and link the URL that gets generated here.  Make sure it's displaying the problem you're having!

I think the issue here is just a text issue in the description for the Tier 15: RPPM gearing strategy for Arcane Mages.

Ah, I understand now.  I was under the impression that Mr. Robot was actually equipping the wrong Meta.  Yes, it looks like a "tooltip error" - thanks!

Oh, heh, yeah that is just a text error in the description. I'll change that.
