Dualspec for the shaman is restoration, he is in mostly 251 gear, again with 4p/t10.
Is haste still the best stat for restoration? Or should I -for example- gem INT and reforge to mastery?
i have Tiny abom, herkumi and Whispering fang skull.
Im yet to change my gems to str haste with the socket bones +4 but
at the moment im running with tiny and herkumi which puts me at 803 haste.
i have reforged wfs to haste which provides me with 703 when merged with tiny.
Im gathering the way i am running is best tiny and herkumi as im not haste capped?
Ok i did a couple things to see what is better for me , now know that i am only 5600 gs. I did several test with reforging all hit , all haste and leaving it alone , and also doing it with the bm/hs/rb rotation and then the one i was messing around with bs/hs/rb/-slam when procd these are what i got , if it helps kool. If you have anything to add to bring up my dps that would be kool too. These are all done with 10 mins on the dummy each.
OK first test is all normal with all strength gems. I did the rotation of bt/hs/rb and did 5900
BT did= 44183 normal 8976 crit
HS did= 5437 normal 11322 crit
RB did= 3313 normal 5531 crit
Ok 2nd test is doing the rotation of bt/hs/rb with all reforged haste i did 5900
BT did=4560 normal 9503 crit
Hs did = 5704 normal 11729 crit
Rb did=3617 normal 5731 crit
Ok 3rd test my rotation bt/hs/rb and slam when proced reforged all haste
BT= 4599 normal 9555 crit
HS=6043 normal 12132 crit
RB= 3182 normal 7699 crit
Slam = 3257 normal 6607 crit
Ok 4th test reforged haste doing the bt/hs/rb rotation and this is respecd 2 into incite and 3 into war accadamy.
i did 6300
BT=4664 normal crit 9436
HS= 5661 normal 12180 crit
Rb=3494 normal 5187 crit
Ok 5th test refored haste respecd into wa and incite doing the rotation of bt/hs/rb/slam when proced i did 7000
BT=4229 normal 8895 crit
HS=5194 normal 11149 crit
Rb=3275 normal 6152 crit
Slam= 3000 normal 5696 crit
Ok 6th test reprecd wa and incite doing the rotation of bt/hs/rb and reforged hit but not hit hard hit caped didnt change any gems. i did 7300 was 24% hit thats it.
Bt=4351 normal 9529 crit
HS=5609 normal 11655 crit
RB= 3334 normal 6157 crit
Ok 7th test respecd incite and wa , regemd and reforged to be hard hit capd and doing the rotation of bt/hs/rb i did 6300. hard cap of 27%
BT=4190 normal 9077 crit
HS 5251 normal 11284 crit
RB= 2973 normal 6596 crit
Ok last test repecd wa and incite , regemd and refogred to be hard hit capped doing my rotation of bt/hs/rb/slam.
i did 6300 dps
BT- 4247 normal 8812 crit
HS=5142 normal 11362 crit
RB=3284 normal 5755 crit
Slam= 3036 normal 6001 crit.
So i hope this info helps you out , i did seem to notice using slam in any of the rotations seems so rage starve us. And from what i seen i was less rage starved and did better having all strength gems and reforged haste.
If you have any info that could help let me know and i will try it out. ty all and hope this helps
I wish it were easier to test the sub rotation on target dummies. Currently, you basically have to give up rupture/evis b/c you don't have enough CP to keep everything up. The fact that I'm still beating combat is just sad.
Been testing the imp, felhunter and succubus out. Imp isn't breaking more than 750 dps on my tests (that's on target dummy, fel armor only), the felhunter tops out at around 1350, even with the talent for bite, and the succubus is doing 1750 with the lash of pain glyph. So please do tell me how to make my imp out dps these others, because i just can't see it.
Its imp for destro, susc for affl :> Don't think there is a way to swap that if u wanna do maximum dps
I was wondering with all the stat changes, is berserking still better than mongoose as far as weapon enchants? I don't know the proc rate numbers, but since agility gives 2 attack power now, wouldn't 240 attack power and haste be just as good as 300 minus armor? Thanks in advance.
Could anyone shed light on where the importance of haste over crit for Destruction scales in?
Upon starting my testing once on live, I reforged as much spirit and crit to mastery as I could. I began testing on dummies, and kept a steady 9.5-10.5k DPS. Due to seeing the diminished amount I was obtaining critical strikes, I decided to reforge again, replacing spirit and haste for mastery, retaining all crit. After ample testing with the same conditions, I pulled a steady 12.5-13.5k DPS.
It seems to be that for Destruction, my DPS scaled much better with crit rather than haste. My Incinerate casts with Improved Soul Fire and BD proc were near GCD, and if SP is to be a crucial part of the Destruction rotation, which has a shorter cast than Incinerate, I fail to see where the haste is scaling with DPS better than crit is.
Any insight would be appreciated so I may further my testing.
Did we get an answer to this? It seems to me that crit would make more sense for destro spec than haste, but I will bow to your superior number crunching and reforge accordingly if you say so.
