    Default Wraith Touched Necklace vs. Mark of Awakened Intellect

    By some bizarre stroke of pure luck on Saturday, I managed to loot a Wraith Touched Necklace. Now while we all know that the Necklace of Pain is the supreme mage neck item in the game, not everyone is going to have it for a long long time yet.

    Right now I'm finding that the WTN is producing about an even 1% of my wizard dps. We haven't yet found a clean way to quantify wizard spell crit dps, so I'm inviting everyone's opinion: how does the WTN hostile spell proc with +20 T6 spell adorn, compare to 2% spell crit with +25 T7 spell adorn?

    well, math speaking, the +5 spell dmg difference i don't think is even worth talking about. so the real comparison is the +2% crit vs the proc.

    i think it's pretty widely accepted that a crit = ~+30% dmg, so 100% crit rate = +30% dps. therefore, +1% crit = +.3% dps.

    that being said, if we assume that you do approx 2k dps zonewide (to use round numbers), increasing your crit rate by 1% should result in about +6 dps. 2% from MoA would thus result in approx +12 zonewide.

    so compare that to the DPS from the necklace and you're done (other then the +5 power/tick)

    The necklace is better IF you have a proc increase in your group, otherwise the Mark wins.

    Since we're on the topic of necklace items. I just got a decent neck item finally. Was wearing a gimped legendary item before (/sigh for character swaping). Got the neck reward from Malkonis' head.

    Anyway i'm curious what people think about the difference between the dot proc adornment vs the +25 spell dmg adorn?

    Any proc is better than bolt of energy or shit like that, especially if u have dmg proc increase buffer in grp, warlock, templar, dirge, ancestry or something.
    Which basically gives the answer to illuminator whether MoA is better than Wraith-touched Necklace. Since we most of the time in the same grp Wraith touch owns.
