View Full Version : DPS tier 10 4 set bonus

02-16-2010, 08:44 AM
As per title above, is it good to maintain the 4 set bonus or change glove to get gatecrusher to get around 99% ARP with food buff?

Thanks for any help to this

It is very important to include what class and spec this pretains to.

Clarification for people...

This is for Fury Warrior.

helm, chest, shoulders and legs for 4pc and pick up gatecrashers is the best dps combo for fury.

I actually just got the 4pc. together and I must say I've been a little disappointed in the bonus. Even with more crit than ever before, Slams seem to be proc'ing far less and to see a double proc from the bonus is almost nonexistent. I think out of a total of 37 slams on a dummy, I had a single one proc a double, and I was at the dummy for a pretty long time. Granted, my overall DPS is higher from the stats from the 4pc, it doesn't seem like Bloodsurge and this bonus are acting appropriately, but maybe I'm wrong.

Dest? Any thoughts?

i dont have the 4pc yet, but what i keep hearing about the low proc rate of it, it's not as stellar as some people were expecting. but looking at all the other plate pieces from icc 10/25 they are bis due to the stats and not the bonus is my view of it.

I am so sorry, i was referring to fury dps. I have the crafted ICC plate legging and Tier 10.25 glove from VOA. I didnt try it alot but 10 sec instant slam and 0.5 CD is more forgiving on the rotation.With cryptmaker on my off hand, at 90% arp (Without food buff) and no chance to get DBW, it look like i could only get near 100% arp using the gatecrasher glove and forfeiting the 4 set bonus. I am just not sure if it worth it. landsoul show a dps decrease if i lost the 4 set bonus.Another question is as an orc, landsoul actually show a dps increase (small) if i switch to using cryptmaker insteand of the saurfang 10 man axe, my expertise drop to 16/11. Should i use cryptmaker or wait until i get gear to cap my expertise?

get the tier legs to get your 4pc and get your expertise capped.

you should be using cryptmaker in your main hand as well since it the higher weapon dmg will work on all your attacks and not just whirlwinds and white hits. use the expertise cloak from frost badges and t10 legs and that will leave you with ~80 expertise rating left till the cap, so basically one more random expertise piece and a gem or two. since you have the expertise axe, you really just need the expertise cloak and tier legs.

My main hand is shadow edge. In your opinion, would u use saurfang axe to cap expertise or cryptmaker, the higher dps on your offhand? Landsoul show very small increase in dps using cryptmaker

link your armory. you mentioned saurfang's axe and cryptmaker so i assumed those were your only weapons.

Is there a big increase in dps from 99.5% arp to 100% arp? Do pple choose eat arp food to get 100% or dps wont difference all that much between 99.5% and 100%?

99.5 is good. It's still a dps increase to get your arP to 100%, however, you'll be better served to gain other stats instead. If you're at 99.5% without a food buff then I suggest using str food (or gemming str and using the arP food to get you back to 99.5 since it's cheaper).
