Got some questions regarding why I bought EP gloves and an Accursed Affliction items recently as a mage.

The nuke I was using before the EP gloves was:
Blade Strike (lv. 68) = 5.24DPM (damage per mana, how much bang for my mana)

When I got the EP gloves, I busted out the nuke they focused:
Sun Vortex (lv. 65) = 5.41DPM

Compared to my Bolt of Jerikor which was:
Bolt of Jerikor (lv. 66) = 4.60DPM (biggest crits with this tho, flashy oooh! but I lose a boatload of mana for it /sigh)

Now the dots. Mages get a 55 dot that does DD damage and then 5 ticks of damage.

The DPM on my 55 dot with that new VT staff is:
Wrath of Elements (lv. 55) = 8.34DPM!!!

So thanks for that 2DKP Staff of Lost Rituals last night guys ;)

Nice. No chance for criticals, tho. Think the math itself still puts the dot above even SV adding in the 16% chance of critting for double damage (max dps AA's). No accounting for the time factor tho, or mobs being killed before the dot has done full dmg. Still, pretty darn efficient.
