It depends on your existing levels of crit, attack power/str and armor pen. At higher levels of crit or lower AP, you gain equal or more benefit from the higher AP on Aesir's Edge. At lower levels of Crit or higher AP you gain more from the higher crit on Stormrune. For me, Aesir's is a better offhand by about 5-6 dps.
Everything is relative when it comes to gear decisions. Yes, there's a best in slot loot list you should shoot for, but certain pieces may be better or worse for you at different times depending on what stats your other pieces of gear provide.
Hmmm, yeah, that would make a lot of sense. The lack of a Runestone in my gear at the moment might account for the reason the crit from Stormrune is better. Now if I can get a tiny bit of luck, maybe I can get my hands on the runestone after 20+ hard mode Thorim kills....
Has anyone done the math for stat weight of spirit (post kings + talents) vs crit rating for raw throughput (HPS)? Assuming the general (4t9) 40-50% rejuv 30% WG 20% lifebloom/various direct heals that crit.
In my own spreadsheet (not posted yet), I see Spirit bit less than half as strong as crit.
I have been reading over the last 5 or 6 pages and it seems as tho alot of people are trying to show/prove that unholy is a "viable" tank spec. My question is if it's inferior to both blood and frost (save gimmick fights) whats the point? If u are serious about tanking u are going to allocate ur talent points in the best possible tree picking up the best talents no? Now if what is happening is that people are finding unholy to be the best tanking tree than I havent being paying attention and i apologize. =)
im a long time read first time poster this question may have been answered but I cant find it yet so if it has then please delete it asap
ive been looking over alot of sites where it shows that have 2 set bonus T9 is amazing but they are saying getting helm and gloves is the choice to go, which I disagrea becuase there are alot of better upgrades then the T9 245 in toGC.
Which 2 pieces of T9 245+ will be the best,
I asked alot of people in my guild and that head and gloves will be better but I'm still not sure it is.
I say the chest and pants are the best just becuase there are better loot out there to fill in the other spots like helm,gloves,shoulders.
remember just delete this post if it has been answered before
As the title stated, I was wondering is there some rule of thumb when to consider rupture free DPS Cycles? I know the Answer might be check the Spreadsheet but I'm at work so that is no option until tonight.
hi all,i have a question regarding anub 25 hm.
our guild is currently working on it and as far i can see,
its more or less all about aoe'ing the 4 adds as fast as possible.
so here comes the question.
shoud i take some other spec as a lets say standard spec suggested on the first page.
thought about something like this
and using the rotation suggested by Arawethion (Starfall, NG-Hurricane x2, Typhoon, NG Hurricane, Moonfire, Hurricane)?
as you can see i took the starfall glyph instead of IS.
i guess it would be very nice to have the unglyphed IS on all the 4 adds
plus the blockgear-tank to minimize the incomming dmg on the tank as well.
so what do you think?
p.s. i'm not a native english speaker,hope the wall of text was readable for you.
hello everybody, I'm new here and i apologize before everything because my english is not perfect (I'm french).
I don't know if this question has an answer in this thread but i want to know something.
I saw many mages who do not take 3/3 in Incanter Absorption...some of them only take 1/3 and the other 2/3...
My question is: Is 3/3 Incanter Absorption useless? Why?
Thank you everbody, and have a nice day
Well the reason I don't take 3/3 (I have 2/3 currently) in IA is because it is a pretty situational talent - it's awesome for some fights and near useless for others. To go to 3/3 I would have to pull points out of talents that are either a flat DPS increase, or ones which are useful in a wider range of fights (like range talents such as Magic Attunement). I'm not committed enough to respec before each fight!
Any idea when the front page will be updated with the new data ? Or will it never be ? I've been following this thread for a while but it is getting tedeous to follow all the minute changes that are around everywhere...
Hi long time reader first time posting ( feared getting infraction points) but im at wits end and if i can an answer that helps me its worth the infraction points.
So here goes... assuming my armory updated im using the 4 pc t-9 Fist/dagger ruptureless combat spec. I was gemmed all ArP until the nerf and i switched back to agi which was costly i dont want to do it again but if i have to i will.
Now i know somebody is gonna say use the spreadsheet and believe me i wish i could i do not like asking questions that i can easily find the answers to.
Bascially if somebody could look at my gear and tell me if gemming ArP would still be good for me that'd be fantastic, I also have the 4 pc t-8 and thats another thing that has me stumped as to weather or not the 4 pc t-8 is better then t-9 considering the other gear i have.
I apologize in advance for asking these questions since i know they are easily answered using the spreasheet, but like i said i can't get it to work at all any insite is greatly appriciated.
