So I went on the "Elite" target dummy and found some surprising results. I want to see if maybe others can verify. Each test was done with zero outside rogue buffs and 6mins each ( 2 full AR's)
Spec: 20-51-0 Ruptureless..the standard ArP Evis Dps: 4100-4500
Spec: 20-51-0 With Rupture Glyph but no Imp Rupture Dps: 4500-4700
Spec: 20-51-0 Rupture spec and Rupture Glyph Dps: 4800-5100
Right now I'm still gemmed from ArP Days. I guess my question is should we gem full AP or maybe Stark Gem ( 20AP, 10haste rating) ? If we are gonna go back to Rupture days, what about ArP gear? Do we just ignore it completely or settle for 400-600 ArP'ish?
- MT/SR/SS/etc. are rare gems
- Am/CR/MZ/etc. are epic gems
- SC/DJ are Shadow Crystals and Dark Jades
- ID/GC/DS are Infinite Dust/Greater Cosmic Essence/Dream Shard
- EE is Eternal Earth
- TiP is Titanium Powder
So basically, the formula just calculates what you earn by prospecting one 5-stack of titanium, assuming you use the uncommon-quality gems to craft greens you'll DE (you usually need an eternal earth to do so, hence the "-EE/5"). All you need to do, now, is replace the gems/DE mats by their actual values, and compare to what titanium is worth on the AH.
Of course, if you're confident you can sell them, you can cut the gems instead of selling them uncut; the reason this formula computes them uncut is because: a) uncut gems are easier to sell, because everyone needs them (as opposed to cut gems); b) the formula doesn't "know" what patterns you have and which cuts sell best.
I am switching from bear to cat and need some decent tool for estimating gear upgrade value.
I was using FeralByNight wowhead scales and RAWR. My questions are as follows:
Is FbN now outdated?
What settings for Target Level/Armor/Duration etc are good for ToC 25 / ICC 10&25 figts?
Any other tool for gear value that you can recommend?
Are there any updated Pawn scales available?
Is it good for us warlocks?where would you put it in your table,my current trinkets are bit old(Living Flame&Dying curse)is it worth to exchange them?For example,in toc there was only one good trinket(Reign of dead ofc)and I never could get it.
This trinket is an upgrade of the eye of the broodmother from ulduar and bring more dps(180 sp+131.crit) than IOTDS(200sp). The only drawback is that it don't proc on LT. However it still proc with hellfire so you are still able to stack it before starting the fight.
At the risk of being shot down for posting in the wrong place, I've been using a 7/57/7 MM build since dinging to 80 (I'm a new player to WoW and this is my first character to hit the level cap). I'd quite like to get into more of the raiding content, but my DPS just isn't there at the moment. I was getting 2.2k last night in a 5 man. I feel like I need a bit of direction, but am confused by everything from what gear to pursue and what spec is really the best for me at the moment. Can anyone give me some advice or point me towards some simple guides to start me off or preferably both? Thanks.
I have a question. What about we start accepting ArP as a "possible" stat in our gear? Since most of our gear in icecrown has armor penetration on it?
I know the loss is huge compared to haste, or attack power, but unfortunately we gotta play with the cards we're dealt, and blizzard didn't give us much of a choice in choosing haste instead of armor pen.
1) Dummies (as has been said countless times before) are useless for testing.
2) Recount isn't working properly yet as far as I've seen. I didn't check last night, but there wasn't an update the day before. Use a sim for testing specs and gearsets. They're far more likely to be up to date on the new numbers right now.
Oh thank goodness. I've been so worried that my DPS has become bunk since the patch hit. So recount is still not working right? It's been saying that I've only been doing around 3k and I did more than that pre-3.3. (Mind you, I'm following this thread to a T).
I was sooooooo worried. I went from being top DPS on the meters to the third.
Did you even read what you're saying? The combat log isn't registering procs. That has nothing to do with you then using that proc to deal damage. Recount doesn't register your DPS if you get a Missile Barrage, only if you use it to cast Arcane Missiles.
And with 312 hit as Arcane I'm pretty sure you weren't even doing 1000 dps in the first place.
312 hit is the soft cap for arcane....
also; I have not been looking at my combat log. Maybe I will have to start because it has been very frustrating.
About Titanium Ore for Prospecting:
I was considering it myself and I put together that type of calculation, though with slightly different groupings. It turned out for me that 309g was the expected income while a stack cost 299g. 10g profit may sound 'ok' but to me that was just too risky. On any Prospect without epic gems it was simply 200g down the drain. As such it is too risky for me to delve into, though with a calculation like that I know what price level is suitable for me to start buying for Prospecting.
