View Full Version : Hunter Agility - Armor Penetration

08-31-2010, 11:23 AM


I am unsure whether I should, or not should begin to gem for Armor Penetration. I see other people with gear similar to mine having nice dps with ArP, but would that be good for me?

Feedback please. :)

Almost a year old and still a good read: http://www.warcrafthuntersunion.com/2009/07/hunter-armor-pen-vs-agility

Best advice as always: check the spreadsheet ( http://elitistjerks.com/f74/t30710-wotlk_dps_spreadsheet ). You're 60ish hit-rating over the cap, so eg replacing the belt will help. Getting your hands on a passiv arp trinket would be great, too. But before you consider buying and cutting 16 new epic gems, you could as well bump that bucks into your professions (dropping herbalism!?).

WHU says: "...it turns out the spreadsheets were in error. They were set up to average the armor pen proc from trinkets. Unfortunately, this doesn’t work because once you have that much armor pen, you can actually hit the armor pen cap with the trinket proc. Due to averaging the procs the spreadsheets ignored that, giving it more dps than it could really get."

Yet I should check the spreadsheet? Why?

I've read WHU, Elitistjerks, OutDPS!, everything.

Thank you for the help though, will try and get Nerub'Ar Stalker's Cord from Festergut and DBW, good that I got a 25 man raiding guild. :)

As for the profession thing, I need the money from Herbalism so that I can level Jewelcrafting + Enchanting.

Thank you, again.
