This is a really nice damage item with a high drop rate. Plus it makes you look like a pimp... gotta love the pimp hat.
This forms a set with and
I'm trying to decide which to use, as i have both the Crown of the Ogre King(+1 spell crit, 16 stam, 18 int, 11 spi) and the Crimson Felt Hat. As a mage crit is very nice to have, as well as the incresed stats, but i have heard the +30 dmg will increse my overall damage output over time. Any thoughts?
I think Crimson Felt Hat is the best "Non Epic" headpiece in the game..
You get +30 spell dmg, and that's better than 1% crit chance, on one single piece..
Crit chance is great, yes.. But I think it's only an importnant thing for Fire Mages that use pyroblast and a lot of scorch!
Ofc it's importnant to frost mages, but they can have %50 crit chance in frost nova (talent), so why not focus on the +dmg output?
So I think the best way for a Frost Mage is to get some nice +dmg stuff, like Crimson Felt Hat, Skyshroud Leggins and Dragonrider Boots, and then Robe of the Archmage, Belt of the Archmage, Eye of the Beast and Band of Rumination for the crit gear.. And don't forget Rod of the Ogre Magi.. I love that staff.. Probaly the best non epic staff ingame!
Then you can rock in PvP and PvE!
+30 spell damage is roughly equal to +5 crit% with Spells. There is no contest at all, +spell damage is king.
Imagine you throw 100 Fireballs... +30 damage means an extra 3000 damage on those 100 balls. +5 crit% means 5 more Fireballs than nornal will crit, which adds about the same 3000 damage *IF* you have Ignite. Without Ignite, +30 spell damage is roughly +10% crit with spells. No contest really. Take +spell damage over +spell crit%. Always.
You will get different numbers with shorter casting spells like Frostbolt or Scorch (which do not get 100% of the +30 damage), but it's still in the same ballpark.
And if you're still not convinced, consider that spell crits are aggro magnets. It's better in PvE if your damage boost is spread evenly over those 100 Fireballs, rather than all packed up in the 5 of them that crit.
Because +6 damage and +1% to-hit is better than 80hp and +8 spirit in +dmg sets.
Harder to get (Drakk in UBRS).
If you want stats gear, go for class sets or Ironweave. Ironweave is better in BGs for AoE-oriented Mages and Warlocks.
In my guild, many others do too I assume, we refer to it as "the pimp hat". I love it when our mages, warlocks and priests show up for a raid and they all have one on, so they're the pimp squad ^^ Looks swell!
(its bubbledude im on my lap top and i forgot my password :)what does spell dmg rele do would it add 30 dmg to my spells becuase i dont notice it at all.
Probably the best +dmg hat you can get pre-raid. Looks great too.
But this look 10000 times cooler, gonna try to get this hat.
Got it on my second run in Strath.. Where we killed the baron as well.. and all he dropped, as far as i can remember, was plate and leather crap.. $%^&ty for a mage :D
Clearly a *!@#$%^ item, evryone can see that!
clearly he was stating simply that the sammy should have passed due to the fact that he already had epic and two clothies in the group had green, not that he wanted the item himself. Not all hunters are ignorant and greedy as most of us believe. Although his typing definitely wasnt the greatest. lol
P.S. And by turban Im sure he meant the Spellweavers Turban off Drakk in UBRS, which btw is better imo.
I am now the proud owner of the most pimpin' hat in all of Warcraft.
Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?
Every other hat I see gets passed on because they just don't look anywhere near as cool as this. Looks damn nice on a gnome.
Well, did my first Strathome run yesterday.
Just before this boss our mage went linkdead. So we got another mage to join but after we had summoned him and he had been with us for five minutes he said that he would not continue if we didnt promise that we would all pass on this if it dropped. The whole party was against that and backed me up (me beeing the only other person that needed it) when I said that I would roll. Mage got pissed and left. Five mins later Magsitrate died and dropped me a nice hat ;)
Of course I was sure to rub it in the mages facce up to the point where he ignored me :)
Ever thought of
when you claim the Crimson Felt to be Pimpin'?
If you've ever wanted to know what the pimpest looking hat is in WoW, this is it.
If you'r a gnome mage or lock...You need this!
It looks imba and it is good.
I got this Today with my gnome mage and i were so happy ^^
wish magister's helm looked like this!
