    Default Current AA specializations, what's yours?

    as the title says, put down your current AA spec, so that ppl can see what you got running "under the hood".

    To get it started, here's mine:
    Spoiler for Raid AA Spec (current as of 3/13/2012):
    Teamwork build: Group DPS is raised, but personal DPS is lowered.
    Burn build: Personal DPS is raised with the focus being on personal and pet HP to get the most out of your burns.

    * PoW Crit build: This build is is to help with reaching the 408 needed crit for Plane of War (This build is TEMPORARY until you no longer need the crit AA and should be adjusted as more crit is gained (PoW charms have 60+ crit))

    Previous build: here
    * denotes my current build


    feel free to ask questions, post comments, give suggestions, etc...

    please keep this constructive and and as troll free as possible!

    that AA website is notorious for confusing people into spending less the required AA and sometimes even wrong aa tree's but at any rate all the major shit is there for his aa. the stuff you're talking about is marginal.

    - 8 pts in Enhance : Elemental Toxicity for 3.2 sec more look like a waste vs 8% crit bonus for you (and pet)
    yeah, i fail at linking... that was my beetny.com home spec, i forgot to paste the actual line and not the address bar, it should be correct now, sorry about that. you tipped me off when i saw the etox comment.

    anyways, some explanation for my choices:
    - Cabalist Cover is useless in raids.
    why do you say it's useless in raids? it isn't a pet block, it's for you, because a 2/3 damage reduction of an AoE means your group will get more ward and stay alive easier, but i guess it's personal preference.
    - Why take "Minion's Critical Strike" when you don't have "Wild Channeling" ? I mean, either you have enough crit chance already and it does nothing for you or you don't and you should take the AA that boost your own crit chance (and pet's crit chance via shared stats)
    in my real spec i actually have neither, this is because with all HM gear and addorns i sit at 301.1% crit chance self buffed, so in a raid with a crit banner down i'm well above the crit requirement and since I am, so is my pet.

    as for the other comments, it was because i suck.

    What use is Animist Bond for? Pet taking aggro and dying?

    animist bond and noxious barrier, it seem to me pet survivability will require more than just blood pact and tainted heals once ya get to the fights Trinaka is currently doing?

    Ah yes, this spec makes more sense

    As for Cabalist Cover, AFAIK it works only against melee attack and even then it has to check against pet's avoidance to be successful. Mage pet avoidance being abysmal (and contested) it pretty much never works against Epic mobs.

    not sure about that Xeno, what it mainly comes down too is does Cabalist cover offer more protection than 8% parry.

    My mage pet has 21.6% avoidance, 8 pooints in cabalist's cover is a 52% chance to increase. currently my avoidance is 36.5 (I still need the crit so only 4 points in parry).

    If I went with cabalist cover my main avoidance would be 32.5% for 48% of the time and 54.1 for 52% of the fight instead of 40.5 100% of the fight.

    errrr something like that ( I am a little fucked up atm so explanation may be a little off).

    ok, so apparently i fail at linking and reading... cabalist cover is for the trauma AoE, you guys do make a valid point though, however parry or avoid, either way it comes to down to personal preference, because as a mage nothing will work too well.

    noxious barrier is for fights that have a mana drain and once you run out of mana, pact comes off at which point your pet tends to die to a fart, but be careful it isnt up allways, there is a 30 second window where it will fall off, so what i do is durring the nnoxious coverage i eat hearts, ask for flows, drain my pet, use oc manastones for when it comes off, at which time i reaply blood pact... rinse/repeat

    anamist bond isnt an avoid for your pet, it is a dmg reduction for you, i use it when our hlr bites it and the time between while they are on the on the ground and get back up and stable. again situational and personal preference.
