See, what you're missing here is that both the discussions in the thread, plus sites like Shadowpanther, provide general guidelines - not hard-and-fast rules. Any such guideline will have circumstances under which it's not true. This is why we have spreadsheets - so people can figure the answer specific to their situation out for themselves without cluttering up the thread with exceptions to the general rule.
Guys, am I right understanding that as of today, at 3.0.8 highest dps possible setup is this:
Glyps: SnD, Rupture, SS
Weapons: Calamity's Grasp with WP on it in main hand and Webbed Death with WP in off hand
From what I've figured, we might be doing better with maces from Ulduar, but am I right understanding that after the implemention of 3.1 changes BEFORE I manage to get some maces, the above setup is still going to be the best? (Meaning that's what I should be using the day 3.1 comes out, therefore "prepared" myself best)?
I've found out that 16agi gems seem to be slightly better than 32ap, and they both are better than 16expertise gems (even if below cap). Can anyone confirm this or am I doing it wrong?
A couple of questions about gear: I've read in T7.25 Rogue Gear Discussion thread that:
1. Tunic of Indulgence is better than t7 (provided that you have 4/5 if using this chest) and it says the same on shadowpanther.net. However my spreadsheet says otherwise.
2. Stalk-Skin Belt is better than Belt of the Tortured. My Spreadsheet confirms this, however shadowpanther.net says otherwise. Is it wrong on shadowpanther?
3. Footwraps of Vile Deceit are better than Dawnwalkers. Neither my spreadsheet nor shadowpanther.net confirms.
4. Darkmoon Card: Greatness + Fury of the Five Flights is the best composition of trinkets. According to my spreadsheet, it says that Darkmoon Card: Greatness + Grim Toll is the best, shadowpanther says that Fury of the Five Flights is second best trinket.
Could anyone please comment your results on the above? Were you getting the same? Also, am I right understanding that it's best to run 4/5t7 + Chestguard of the Reculse (instead of 4/5+malygos gloves/sarth legs)?
I've noticed that if I go 4/5 + Chestguard of the Reculse, sapph's neck, dawnwalkers, Stalk-Skin belt and THURSTING BANDS and put 0 expirtise gems, I get over the cap of expertise just from that gear. When I switch the bracers to Sinner's Bidding, I get even more upgrade. Were you getting the same?
Thanks in advance for replies.
