    Default Conjuror Reforging / Adorning Guide

    UP TO DATE AS OF 3/31/14

    Conjuror Reforging Guide


    The most important thing to keep in mind is this is a balancing act. You want to keep yourself capped in a raid setting for spell reuse, recovery, and casting speed first. You need to know what buffs you usually have, what stats you maintain via procs, and what your group setups are to effectively determine what these numbers should be solo.

    The major stats a Conjuror gains from reforging are: Ability Mod, Recovery, Accuracy, DPS mod. I do not recommend reforging to gain any other stats, however based on your current gear "availability" there are certain exceptions.

    The ultimate goal solo is:
    • 192% Casting Speed
    • 95% Combined Ability Reuse/Spell Reuse
    • 68% Recovery
    • 20-25 Accuracy
    • 100% > Attack Speed
    • 100% ~ Multi Attack
    • 560% DPS Mod
    • 60% AE Auto Attack
    • 40-45 Ability Mod per Potency ( 25000 for me atm)
    *Some of these #'s are under the cap solo, but with normal mage raid buffs, the stat will be capped at the listed amount.

    Spell weapon auto stats will never outweigh spell dmg stats for a summoner (in their current state) because spell weapon auto stats don't share with the pet and the spell dmg stats do.

    Conjuror Adorning Guide

    I am not going to waste time explaining what people should adorn if you are just starting and don't even have heroic gear which may require you to need a surplus of casting speed/reuse, or people who don't need much crit chance chance because you don't raid. For these people: I wouldn't waste my plat on adorning bad gear.

    White Slots
    Head: Int
    Chest: DPS Mod
    Shoulders: Int
    Cuffs: Casting Speed
    Hands: Casting Skill
    Legs: Casting Speed
    Feet: Casting Skill
    Neck: Int
    Waist: Int
    Cloak:Casting Speed
    Ears: Sta
    Rings: Mod / Crit Chance
    Wrists:Casting Speed
    Charms: Casting Speed
    Primary/Secondary/Ranged: Potency

    Purple Armor Slots
    Head:Potency + Crit Bonus
    Shoulders:Doublecast Chance
    Chest: Potency + Crit Bonus
    Cuffs: Potency + Crit Bonus
    Hands: Potency + Crit Bonus
    Legs: Potency + Crit Bonus
    Feet: Potency + Crit Bonus


    Purple War Runes
    Bolstered Attributes
    Truespirit's Legacy

    Thanks. Cloaks I'd put down as crit chance. Any use for velium cipher? I've favored it over benefaction but sounds like most take benefaction..

    very nice. small correction(s)

    4) spell weapon attack speed is the best spell weapon stat - untill it caps, then SWMA.

    I added cloak, thanks.

    Although I reallllly wish velium cipher was as good as that line of procs used to be (dark robe of power, ring of blood and rage, enforcer's ring of survival, etc) it's not practical because almost every raid encounter has that detrimental that that deals dmg to you every time you use power. It has made all stone skins, velium cipher included, almost useless. The only reason the conjy personal stone skin is still usefull is 100% control over timing and instant casting speed.

    Benefaction isn't god mode either though, some AoE's are unavoidable. On the same token, a lot of aoes are avoidable, and it has saved me countless times. It's also nice for aoes that interrupt, stun, stifle, etc, but the real selling point is how often it procs. Logical choice for last war rune tbh.

    After thinking about this I would tend to agree but it's not gonna be obvious on ACT because more attack speed = more procing, which is where the added DPS from spell weap auto really comes from. Fixed.

    Excellent post.

    I picked casting skills for wrists since I'm already unable to get rid of all the excess casting speed via reforging (monks FTW).

    I still like casting speed on wrist because it allows you to reforge more elsewhere. Mod > Casting Skills. If you already have reforged ALL of your casting speed though, skills would be best choice on wrists.

    Updated SS and PoW procs worth going for. Didn't include many of the dmg procs that your gear will inevitably have on it because they don't matter, and shouldn't be the determining factor on a gear decision.

    Updated for CoE. There may be a few missing, and definitely some undiscovered. Feel free to post any you find that are not listed, and I will add to list if viable.

    Also, the name of this thread can be simply Conjuror Reforging / Adorning Guide rather than having to update every xpac since I don't have section mod privileges.

    Possibly will condense the proc/effect list into a gear thread, still kind of reluctant to do that because I don't feel like discussing lower tiered items, and find it kind of pointless to post the same list of gear anyone who is raiding will use. There is no such thing as gear variation anymore, it's more so about adornments and availability.

    nice updates brother.

    comments:
    Charms: Mod

    and in general cast speed > weapon skills IMHO tho it requires more testing.


    Also might be worth adding the oldest runes that are still worth it, like overbearing onslaught and magnitude
