Hiya, I was hoping to get some input for my reforging options. My choice comes down crit vs mastery - granted, the answer would be the latter in most situations but my guild cannot always run with a 5% crit buff and occasionally, we're missing BoK/Mark aswell.
What my numbers come down to are: 1600 crit, 2383 mast vs 1751 crit, 2197 mast
I know mastery is considered superior but I find myself covetously eyeing the extra crit. Opinions? Here's my character sheet if it'll help any. Nyctalopia @ Steamwheedle Cartel - Game Guide - World of Warcraft
As a side note, is 27k on Ultrax any good? I know RNG factors heavily but just as a benchmark...
I know there are a lot of other factors, but generally speaking, no, it's not.
The proc is out of control for arms warriors(and for some reason blizzard thinks this is okay, when we were nerfed for the exact reason). The procs are roughly equal for ret and unholy, though the tentacles damage scales from unholy dks mastery, making it lowest for ret.
Because Ret Paladins aren't supposed to out-DPS the golden goose, per blizzard logic. That's the only real reason any of us have been able to come up with in this regard; I know it's not very satisfactory, nor is it even likely, we're just left scratching our heads at what sometimes seem like arbitrary changes.
I would like some feedback from any Desto that is currently raiding without the 5% haste buff. I am wondering if it is worth getting to the same haste threshold as a Warlock that raids with this buff. Will the 2 extra Immolate ticks make up for the large amount of Crit/Mastery lost from gearing this way?
as a TG Fury (plz continue reading, the Post is about Arms), with Landsouls Spreadsheet i got a 0,60% DPS increase by swiching from Orc to Troll (added timestamps correctly) GS = 403.
Now i know that Fury benefits more from Haste than Arms, but the 0,60% still made me think...
Regarding, that while using Gurthalak the Expertise benefit as Orc has no value and there are no Beast-Bosses in DS its only:
15 Sec 1170 AP 2 min CD VS 10 Sec 20% Haste 3 Min CD
Sadly the Spreadsheet from Landsoul doesn't support Arms yet :/
Anyone else ever thought about the Troll Racial?
Hey guys, new to the forums here and just wanted to ask about the 2pT12 and 2pT13. I only have the 378 version of T12 of pants and head and wanted to know if it was worth it still if it isnt the 391 version. Im working on Heroic DS so the regen from the set would be nice but am i sacrificing too much with the lower stats on the (378) T12?
Hellow I was woundering would it be considered a DPS loss to ignore Hot streak procs when there is still more less then 10 seconds but nore than 2 seconds left on the pyroblast DOT effect on the boss? I have done it both ways using hot streak procs when they happen and not using the procs when there is less than 10 seconds but more than 2 seconds left on bosses. Over all I have seen about a 3k to 4k difference in DPS with not using the hot streak procs right away but only to maintian the DOT. Can any one else confirm this for me or is this just how the gearing I have done on my mage just supports this.
I noticed that the guide is a bit outdated about hit cap isn't the new hit cap 8%?
I was also wondering if reforging to haste instead of crit would be better a lot of hunters in my guild been saying they noticed a huge dps gain when taking crit and turning it into haste or is this some how wrong?
Not sure if its me or not but I seem to find the best rotation is:
SS > CS > StS > StS > RF > AS > ArS > StS > StS > CS
Basically repeating this over and over using Arcane shot and Aim rotation until Chimera is up and then hitting Chimera. Just seems like a lot less complicated and doesn't go through as much focus I have a ilvl of 380 so maybe its just cause I'm lower geared then the top tier? I just find doing Aim shot a lot kills my focus I can't do the recommended 3 times. Or am I missing something?
something interesting guildies and I use to do take a 85 whatever you are get 5 man groups take off all your gear even weapons start at VC get gear, run Stocks get gear, run SM, etc basically running all the old instances upgrading your gear each time (so repair doesn't matter) finally you get to the raids and start clearing the raids with the correct gear for that lvl raid its better if you get one of each gear class cloth, leather, mail, plate of course there is going to be some overlapping some where.
Its really fun to go through all the old instances and if you do it with guild you can get all the old achievements you may or may not have yet including the raids, the best part is no repair bill cause its not your high end gear and you can sell whatever you don't want to keep great for those that like to collect old tier for transmog or to just have. I earned a lot of gold by just killing everything as if you were starting over at lvl 1 and you collect great beginner mats for enchanting, tailoring, leather working, etc.
We call it naked runs and try to do them once a month just for fun to get a good laugh and well earn gold, collector gear, pets, mounts, etc.
As a hunter you can even do this on your own and you don't have to worry about gold as I stated before cause you aren't using your own gear I use a bear pet or tank substitute but it doesn't really matter much until lvl 75 cause you just rip through things fast anyway.
