without going into too much detail what hit rating are people looking at for 3.3 - this whole issue with the white crit cap has really confused me and i cant find a selection of posts that explain what hit values we are looking at ( i know it says its hard to compute)
I used to run with 280, but during 3.2 this has made it up to 380 - is this a decent amount in 3.3?
No i doubt you will lose so much spirit as its simply better than crit.
Sure you are stuck with 4 T10 Setitems with no Spirit. But other than that there are so many spirit haste sp items in addition to the haste sp hit items that you will get high spirit values with icc.
if you look at the items providing hit in icc you will see they provide much more hit and thus you can take all those nice priest items to boost your spirit.
I have bought the T9 chest to replace the T8.
But when testing on the heroic dummy i lost 600dps with the T9.
Tested and tested but still the same outcome i loose around 600 dps, while femaledwarf is telling me that i must gain around 67 DPS
Because more energy converts to more mutilates (good) which contributes to more envenoms (even better). Basically you're trading mut damage for envenom damage, and envenom has higher DPE. Then for the icing on the cake you get more envenom buff uptime which is just more poison damage too.
Consistency. It's only a virtue if you're not a screwup.
