Couldn't decide whether this belonged in the HALP! forum or the Gear one.


Is the heroic version of Dreamhunter's Carbine (http://www.wowhead.com/item=51834) better than Rowan's Rifle of Silver Bullets (http://www.wowhead.com/item=50444) (in terms of survival; does the health outweigh the avoidance)?



My thoughts:






Using Dreamhunter's Carbine over Rowan's Rifle of Silver Bullets, you lose:

26 hit rating
34 dodge rating
34 parry rating
Usings Rowan's Rifle of Silver Bullets over Dreamhunter's Carbine (with talents), you lose:

26 stamina (with a Solid Majestic Zircon)
27 defense rating
29 shield block rating
95 block value.
4 strength
The dodge and parry combined from Rowan's gives .65% avoidance (in my current gear) over Dreamhunter's Carbine. With a boss swing timer of 1.5 seconds, over 8 minutes that avoidance can make an extra 2 attacks avoided. The hit from Rowan's is nice too for fights that would require reliable taunts, but a glyph swap can be used temporarily for that purpose.

Using Dreamhunter's over Rowan's, the block rating provides 2.01% block and an additional 95 block value. Using the same 1.5 second swing timer over an 8 minute fight, that block can make an additional 6 attacks blocked (3 blocked normally, 3 blocked critically). And of course, there's the additional 260 unbuffed health from the gun (with a Solid Majestic Zircon).

I'd use the carbine if it's heroic.

More EH.

And the random number generator says those two times that you avoided, could have also hit. Effective health wins the day.

That's what I thought; just wanted conformation from others.
