Alright well thanks for clearing it up i did think it may of been the combat log lag but watching the recording (video) looked different so i made a ticket and then the GM response saying it is a known issue made me jump to bad conclusions.
I would of uploaded and linked video so you could check but i deleted the folder for the boss attempts once i uploaded our kill video, apologies for misleading delete these posts if you wish i crossed out my previous post unsure of how to delete it.
Has anybody tested out weapon swap macros to apply frost vulnerability when going 2h frost or weapon swap macro for switching to Cinderglacier when Unholy strength is procced to see if they result in a dps increase?
Excuse the question but If I got it right from the latest posts and reviews of the trinkets, on behalf of us normal gear users (not hc) for some time, our BiS will be changed to Feather/Shadopan and Feather/Spark, am I right? I see primordius rage which is mentioned is not giving the top results, it is third on the list. (I am DW btw).
Hey guys, i guess i'm rather new to monk tanking. I thought i was doing alright, but i started doing HoF LFR and people keep complaining about how i have "All DPS gear on" I know some of my gear may not be the best for tanking, but I don't think i have ALL DPS gear on. If someone could take a look at my armory and give me a few suggestions, i'd greatly appreciate it!
At about 8000ish haste, crit becomes better. You have far more haste than that.
Having said that, I am curious about the legendary metagem. When finally getting it (damn drop rate for Secrets), should I look to build up haste to a higher amount or still stick around the low 8000s?
I have read so many conflicting forum posts regarding gemming and my question is do I gem for nothing but crit in all slots and ignore the socket bonuses or follow the socket bonuses?
I know my reforging is incorrect right now, and am correcting it as we speak for the t14 4 piece at 3706 and am hit capped.
I recently swapped from tanking to Boomy and am a bit overwhelmed by all of the information. Any help would be appreciated as well as criticisms.
Go for the socket bonuses. There's no reason to pass up extra stats that you get for free.
Typically you should use:
Red: int/crit Yellow: crit Blue: spr/crit
From your armory, your gemming strategy looks to be the best possible. You're looking pretty good! Only thing I would suggest is swap out Wild Charge for Feline Swiftness, but that's just a personal preference - I like the added movement speed that multiplies against boots and stuff.
It still requires a decent amount of AP to make DC more dmg per RP above RS. With a 517 ilvl weapon it takes at least 183k AP and with a 541 weapon it takes 230.7k AP before DC does more dmg/RP. So if even if you are sitting on runes and take t5 procs out of the equation, any time where you aren't going to cap RP it would be a loss to use DC if you are under those AP values.
What about the Heartstrike vs Bloodboil calculation for vengeance with new weapon itemlvls. i think that one is far more important since it doesnt decrease survivabilty
It seems that despite the amount of love MM got in 5.2, the DPS meters shows great favor for SV and BM over MM. theorycrafting on the other hand shows an equal DPS (or near equal) between the 3 specs with no clear winner for single boss fight.
As a hunter that only play MM I often wonder what is the reason for it. Is it the laziness of hunters to re-learn a new spec once they already mastered a valid spec. It is the (assumed) difficult DPS rotation of MM. Is it the MOP mechanics that require a lot of AOE or is it just follow the raidbots/WOL herd (or horde).
I suspect that most hunters just follow the general media which mostly quote SV and BM for the leading specs and don't bother to drill down to numbers. For me it is just fine as I always love to see me ranked in WOL.
