Copying this over from MMO-C since I think it'll have a better understanding over here.
Has anyone really tested these out? I was averaging 9.1k on a dummy with Fleshrending (no other debuffs on it) and did a quick 3mil test with the PvP gloves getting 9.7k (again no debuffs).
It would be nice if others can offer some constructive feedback/tests to help confirm in the PvP gloves are better and it wasnt just RNG (I had a low crit % with TV and CS both being low 30s when my tooltip says 29%).
Before anyone says RNG, the point of this post is to get more tests done with different gear levels.
I did some quick math with 'current stat weights' I think I did it right with the conversions if not someone please note it.
+17 strength (+1 for the actual item +10 for socket +6 for bonus)
+23 crit or 33 (yellow socket)
+74 haste or 84 (yellow socket)
+5% CS damage
Lets say you can keep your haste cap: Fleshrending's 74 haste is all of a sudden not that amazing, effectively turning into 31.82 strength (according to CURRENT stat weights), and 25.41 strength for the crit conversion (again according to current stat weights). So for simplicity sake we'll add them together for 57.23 strength, rounding down to 57. Of course they wont act like strength so 114 ap.
Does 114 AP and 17 strenght beat out 5% more CS damage?
