Heroic dps plate
I noticed alot of Heroic DPS plate has hit or haste instead of crit. (Echoing Stompers and Cast Iron Shackles to name a couple)
I like the hit but should I be taking the haste over gear with slightly less str that has crit? Are there any reasons why these items are itemized like this? I normally play prot and pve dps is fairly new to me.
Im currently using an arms build and normally I sit around 30% crit while buffed in a group.
Those items have agi on them, which gives crit. Admittedly, 28 crit is better than 28 agi, but they have crit
mb its not the perfect combination of stats but thats how id gear
hitcap = expertisecap > good amount of str ( ap ) / Crit > haste / arpen
you need some str / crit to scale well with each other and gemming or gearing haste / arpen depends on equipment and raidbuffs
