Eye of Quagmirran is a better choice for sure. Mags trinket second equip is very bad, because if you’re hit capped = no resists

Bracers are just wrong – pvp bracers, when gemmed with Potent Noble Topaz offer 16 spell crit, and 27 spell damage. 16 spell crit > 5 spell damage, even when factoring in the intellect and stamina. I’ve yet to find a fight where ive had mana issues in P1. Anybody that doesn’t have the time to invest to get ONE piece of PvP gear doesn’t have the time to invest to get full bis.

Weapon – Nathrezim Mindblade should be listed as a 1:1 to magus blade – you sacrifice a TINY amount of spell crit for a TINY amount of int. In later phases, when most mages, if not all, will respec to Arcane, then Mindblade actually takes the edge as int > crit for arcane. Talon of the Tempest is also worth a mention, at least, although being a world boss drop I understand its exclusion.

If you are including T4 legs due to breaking up spellstrike, you should at least mention that “true bis” would be T4 helm + chaotic skyfire alongside Leggings of the Festering Swarm from Doom Lord Kazzak.(this combination actually sims higher than full spellstrike) I understand world boss loot is rare and shouldnt really be counted on and is thus excluded from most bis lists, but if you are including T4 legs, you may as well, as breaking up spellstrike set bonus is really not worth for T4 legs in any situation as fire unless you don’t have 2/2 spellstrike, which anybody going for spellstrike should realistcally have.getting 2/2 spellstrike is easier and less time consuming than getting T4 legs + Helm, but particularly because you list Spellstrike hood as BiS for head slot, it’s particularly perplexing.

Trinket should 100% be quags eye as the haste proc is far superior to a proc that can only happen on resist when the aim is to have 99% spellhit chance. Quags eye + Silver Crescent when you have an ele shammy in your party, if not then Silver Crescent + Scryers Bloodgem is most certainly bis to make sure you are hit capped.

On the subject of making sure you are hit capped, you should also include Ashyen’s gift in the ring slot as the substantial amount of hit you get makes it superior to other pieces when you lack the hit (for example if you have no ele shammy in your group [or draenei if you are alliance]) Seal of the Exorcist is also a good option, as it is ‘almost’ 1:1 with Band of Crimson Fury, and is far, FAR easier to obtain.
