Short of simming every possible swapout in EnhSim, is there an accepted answer at this point of whether ilvl 251 2pct10 (badge-only version) outperforms ilvl245 4pct9? Clearly you wouldn't want to go from 258 to 251, but I'm curious as to whether the 245-251 jump would be enough to outdo the 4pc t9 bonus. I'd eyeball it in Rawr, but in the time it would take to import the 251 versions of T10 (not part of the my dataset or the Wowhead upgrade path), I could probably just sim it... which I'll probably end up doing, but at work without EnhSim at the moment.
You Aren't In A Party
As a single-disease frost tank I'm considering dropping Chill of the Grave and Unbreakable Armor in favour of Acclimation.
The main reason I'm a little sceptical about Acclimation is that I'm not entirely convinced it's a useful buff. I assume it stacks with element-specific resistances (totems/auras) as it'd be a quite pointless 3 points otherwise. The main concern I have is whether there's enough magic damage that is (even in part) mitigatable by resistance. A large number of spells during Festergut, and probably even the oozes/floods in Rotface make it's uptime quite likely to be good but will my having resistance actually mitigate some incoming damage?

Well I asked about Acclimation on the page right before this one and it was ignored, so thank you Pint and Mug for hopefully provoking some discussion about it.
Now that first wing and Festergut and Rotface are pretty well on farm I would like to start watching this buff. So if anyone has anything more first-wing wise to contribute to Mug's second-wing information please help.
Just got a Logitech G13 gameboard and I'm trying to get used to the feel. The thumbpad is definitely odd coming from WASD movement.
I'll eventually put my own keybindings together eventually, but I was wondering if anyone has any general advice about the locations of common non-class-specific functions (which doesn't even have to be G13 specific, I'd think), or specifically any MM Hunter profiles they could share.
Even a web resource or two would be awesome - I spent an hour today plodding through Google. There was no shortage of people trying to sell or review the G13, but I saw 0 content from people actually discussing and sharing mapping profiles.
A few updates to my post. As far as the Feral stuff--I don't think anything is necessarily off-limits as far as topic, and I think a bit of simplification is okay as long as you don't say things that are inaccurate. The concept is merely: if I had one minute/one page to tell someone how to play my spec, what are the most important things I tell them?
After an ele sham get 2 piece tier 10, is it better to then stay w/ lvb glyph or change to ele mastery glyph or how long does the boss fight have ta be to allow ele mastery glyph to be more useful than lvb glyph?
I've just gotten the Leggings of Woven Death made, and with 3 pieces of 245 T9 still and my other gear I'm at 919 haste wearing the new leggings. I won't be wearing the leggings regularly until tonight, however, since I'll be getting my T10 shoulders and will be breaking T9 4-set for that. After I get the shoulders I'll be wearing 2T10, 2T9, and the new leggings.
So far I've gemmed sp haste in all of my yellow sockets, so now I'm looking to regem those sockets, but I'm not sure what to go for.
I'm still using the Talisman of Resurgence as one of my trinkets and I do love having the large mana pool from all that int. I expect to replace that trinket soon with Muradin's Spyglass or something else, so I was considering sp int in my yellow sockets. It seems like having a large mana pool will be even more helpful with plenty of haste to burn through the mana quickly.
I'm also looking at sp crit for the yellow sockets too, though. I just don't know whether I should gem sp int or sp crit for the 7 yellow sockets I need to regem.
i am switching to afflic but i just want to know what kind of dps/damage done on recount should i see to make sure im where i should be. i guess what im asking is kind of a dumb question but i want to make sure im pullin my weight i dont rely totally on recount but it does give me a pretty good idea of what i need to change if anything. just want to get an idea of what kind of numbers others with similar gear are seeing
Curiosity begs me to ask where the gear rating begins to benefit switching to MM over SV? Are we talking T9 level is when it behooves me to switch or should I already have switched by this time or are we talking when we've reached best in slot level?
As I am pretty shit at using Landsoul's spreadsheet I am mostly using maxdps.com, I don't really know how useful it is compared to Landoul's but meh...
I'm finding myself having a hard time deciding what weapons to go for. I am way too poor to get Shadow's Edge in a long long time so I'm going to try to get Bryntroll for MH, but what about OH? I got a normal Justicebringer as MH now that would be placed in OH as I work on getting the one I actually want, but wich one would that be? Heroic Justicebringer?
