I have a rather 'simple' question for ye'all today. Unbuffed I'm having 3633 AP, as you can also see on my armory, in my retribution off-spec. I do not find my gear that worthless but as I look up other armory pages I see lots of 5000 AP~ unbuffed Paladins! For the first time I'm going to ToC as a DPS (I normally heal everything) and I was wondering if my 3633 unbuffed AP was able to handle it. Do ye'all think I'd be able to pull off at least 3,500 DPS raid buffed ;-)? I've never DPS'd before, did some readings beforehand, and I don't want to completely fail there.. Since I was only able to pull off 3,300 DPS on a dummy..
WoW-Heroes.com says I can do it, do you think I can?
That's an interesting solution. Does anyone know of any other mechanism in the game that works like this? I'm wondering how exactly they go about calculating how many more times it should tick. I suppose the most straightforward way would be to multiply the original number of ticks (6) by your haste, but past experience shows blizzard doesn't always choose the most straightforward way of doing things
Simple way to test it would be to get to 1093 haste rating and see if corruption ticks 8 times after being refreshed by haunt.
I don't know about the hybrid nature of it (where it functions differently before refresh and after), but in terms of the individual mechanics:
The initial part sounds like it works the same as Shadow Word: Pain and Vampiric Touch.
The refreshed part sounds like it works the same Devouring Plague.
If it's true that it works the same as Devouring Plague then the actual duration won't be 18 seconds (although UI calls would return 18).
Devouring Plague currently works like this (on PTR):
num_ticks = round( 8 * ( 1 + haste% ) )
duration = num_ticks * 3.0 / ( 1 + haste% )
So for example with 0% haste, num_ticks = 8, duration = 24, just like on Live.
I've been raiding as moonkin for sometime and used 2pcs of T8 set (hands+legs). Should I consider upgrading them to 2pcs of T9 (lvl232)? Is the 2pcs of T9 must have? I've got the lvl245 idol. This is my big question now. I've enough emblems to do this.
I don't think I will be getting any Trophys soon, since moonkin is not my main spec and I've had horrible luck with Trophys for sometime. It would take a lot of time for me to get 2 Trophys.
I've got normal LVL245 head (ony25) and chest (toc25), also LV232 shoulders (toc10). Should I consider switching these to T9 lvl232 so I'd get 2 x T8 + 2 X t9? My other armor gear is lvl219-245. I don't have that good trinkets, but neck/rings are quite ok.
I've got 5pcs of T8 (T8 - T8.5) so I can switch them rather easy, but I'd loose a lot of haste/spellpower/hit rating by using them.
i go into heroics healing as a druid resto and get caught up healing the tank and the whole group. is this normal or should there be an off healer for the rest of the group? I do pretty good in healing however i cannot concentrate on thehole party and get failing the tank.
Hi, I hope this is where to post this, if not I am sorry. I have posted the link to my armory and my question is if anyone can tell me why I am still only doing about 3.8 DPS. With this gear is that about right or am I doing something very wrong, thanks.
