hey guys, sorry I didnt played beta but I would like to know a few things.
Do AoE still play an important role in terms of trash and boss?
Is LB,pyro,ignite then impact so spread good enough?
Do people still use flamestrike/blizzard when it comes down to aoe, i was told they were very mana consuming.
This question bring you back to question 1. Fire has a fair amount of AOE orientated talents. This serve only to restrict the choices you have for other talents such as Mana Efficiency/Utility talents. Why dedicate so much AoE talents into fire tree when blizzard is moving away from aoeing every single pack?
What sort of stat prio are you going to aim for in cata? ive been away from the game for a while now and have just started to play again.
I going to try to get hit capped asap, obviously agility would be next, looking into mastery next? haste wasnt that important end game tbc, haste the least important
thanks in advance im just trying to plan my gear when i hit 85.
Hi all, i was wondering if with the last patch herbalism has become a better profession then tailoring (for pve btw,demo spec ,so haste>sp), i ask this because i have alchemy/tailoring,afaik the haste buff scales with max hp?(its a bug?), and if i was going to exp first my lock in cata, i wanted to skill alchemy while exping, tnx for any useful reply
sorry for my english btw, its not my first language
I'm a Restoration Druid (Formerly Feral) who has never seriously played Moonkin before.
Skip down to the bottom if you don't want to read my rambling
Cataclysm has presented me with a problem as I would like to be able to use my questing gear to start healing 5 mans before heading to raids at level 85. This means I cannot level as feral despite being certain that it would be quicker (I do have hopes that I might be able to get server first).
As a result, I'm leveling as Moonkin. In order to get myself into the 'groove' I've done a few ICC10 raids as Moonkin (in my healing gear, 55% hit rating so not ideally itemised!). Now, practising on these bosses is all fine and dandy and I did pretty well considering it was my first time raiding as an owl. However, after seeing how long the Moonkin rotation takes to 'wind up', as I like to say, I was concerned with the spec's ability to efficiently plow through quest mobs.
Fast forward a day and I found myself finishing off some quests in Icecrown in order to get a feel for questing as Boomkin. Here is where I bumped into a question that I've been struggling to answer myself so was wondering if anyone could provide any insight.
In Cataclysm leveling, what do you think will be more efficient when questing in terms of speed?
Sitting in Solar Eclipse and spamming Sunfire with Starfall on cooldown? (think lunar shower + BotG) or attempting to follow a more standard rotation?
Since I haven't had the opportunity to play in the beta I'm unable to come to any solid conclusions.
You can not compare the AP to STR like that. STR would scale, making it much more attractive and therefore probably out do the speed increase. However, AP does not so your 156.25 AP is just that. Do not convert AP to STR.
i'm not sure if this is completely accurate. 1 STR = 2 AP, this does not scale. you can look at your armory, multiply 2400 by 2, and see that it is giving you roughly 4800 attack power (4780 to be exact). if this is true, 1 STR = 2 AP and 1 AP = .5 STR
156.25 * .5 = 78.125
i'm not saying that blood fury gives you 78.125 strength, but 78.125 strength is the equivalent of 156.25 attack power.
then again i don't play death knight, i play rogue. i may still be mistaken but the numbers don't lie. i'm just wondering about the future minmaxing of my guild's starting dk.
