The gem count is more a color count, it shows how much gems match either Red, Yellow or Blue. So multi-color gems will add to both colors.
You're not losing crit, but there's a few factors involved:
a) Your in-game crit displayed is versus a level 80 mob, versus a level 83 you will suffer some. Testing revealed a crit depression of roughly 4.2%.
b) The displayed crit % in the sheet includes procs from talents and gear (i.e. Master Tactician).
c) It also includes buffs on the target
After adding/subtracting all this the sheet ends up at 23.52% _effective_ crit rate.
According to my current calculations, it seems that the 5/5 Bladed Armor, might be better than 3/5 and 3/3 Ravenous Dead, this isn't a fact at this point, since i havn't calculated the difference with Greatness & Crusader procs + Raid buffs, such as Kings, GOTW and the 40+ from food, might be worth calculating in aswell.
Atm it looks like;
Armor / 180 x 5 = X
STR / 100 x 3= Y (x2 = AP bonus)
X = Bonus from Bladed Armor
Y = Bonus from Ravenous Dead
To count in Kings, MOTW and Food buff it would look like; (With Ravenous Dead 3/3)
STR + 37 + 40 / 100 x 13 = _____
Afterwards you'd need to calculate Proc Rate on Greatness & Crusader with PPM (Procs Per Minute)
And tbh im not that good at math. :P
Currently doing 4.2-4.8K DPS on HC Dummy, Unbuffed. - This is without using Cooldowns, during a 6-10 min test.
Depends on KM Procs - Using Vengefulheart Sigil, which brings my FS hits up to 9.5-10.5K
I've also found out that having the 26 Expertise cap, actually just gives the last bit of DPS - atleast it has proven to be worth it, in Ulduar.
But... Even though im making a hell lot of DPS on Dummy, i still find my DPS on Boss's around 5.5-6K, MAX.
Can't find the reason for this, because i know that with Unholy unbuffed, its buffs my DPS with about 2-3K, getting raid buffs.
Might be because of the lack of Impurity.
I'll still be testing further homemade specs with my own Rotation.
After talking to lvl 80 warriors on my server I am getting the feeling that since the patch arms is better for overall dps? I understand that the titan's grip nerf was a major blow to fury spec'd warriors but which is better for dps now? I currently have a level 30 warrior and after reading info on fury I understand that 2Hers for fury until BC gear with +hit is the way to go. I'll be honest reading about the mechanics confuses the hell outta me. Mainly I came here to try and get a better understanding of the mechanics but I guess I just don't get it..... Any help/tips/suggestions are always appreciated as I like to do the best I can at everything I do in game.
