been lucky and got my hands (and feet) on some nice upgrades that now make me 100% armpen capped, but sadly i only now got 9expertise ><
SO i guess what im wondering about regarding my gear is the following:
A) Should i use the 251 boots from icc to lift my expertise over the 264 ones?
B) is it worth for me gemming some expertise and will that lift my dps?(is expertise realy that important? standing behind boss and pew pew..)
C)any suggestion to upgrades i should be prioritizing?
My plans ahead is to get the necklace from Blood queen that got expertise and arm pen, swap my cloak with the might of the ocean serpent and snatch the waistpice from dreamwalker as im more comfy wearing plate items ^^
BUT even though my Gearscore is high il gladly take some pointers to how i can upper my performance as a good player never is happy, chasing the better all the time
i thought it was a 10% extra chance to miss before they dropped the penalty and then once they saw how op it was they added the 10% dmg nerf to it...
either way, yeh 8% hit is the cap right now for special melee attacks (yellow damage). anything that says otherwise is old information.
Can anyone gauge my performance as Fury so far? This week I pulled about 11k as Fury and even though I'm still using Greatness Card, I think its a bit low for my gear level. I'm a bit disappointed since if you check a the log in the begining of the month I pulled like 10.7k as Arms. The only mistake I've figured out so far is that I've been double Indestructable potting instead of using a Speed Potion, there are also those frustrating times where I use stance dance to Rend only to see a Slam proc from a HS....
As for Slam Procs basic rule of thumb I've been following is using it only when it doesn't push back BT or Whirlwind more then .5 seconds.
Warrior is Kroanen of Gurubashi
I must have 13K I MUST BEAT OUR OBNOXIOUS RET PALADIN ELITIST PRICK!!!
keep in mind that these numbers are with out adding in the zone buff. I remember looking at BiS DPS with the 30% and it was seriously like 18k+
Just wondering, should I be pushing back WW or BT by .5 for Execute like I would Slam?
I wouldn't. I see Execute as purely a GCD filler when slam hasn't procced and you've got so much rage it's getting wasted (on fights like Festergut for example).
That's just me gut feeling on it, I'll defer to TGM on this one if he disagrees :P
I have a feeling that I am going to end up doing some math on this...
what ever the case is, the DPS loss/gain for execute+pushback is more than likely going to be much less drastic than it is for slam+pushback
yup, it's math time.
still using my BiS gear loadout in the spreadsheet:
avg BT damage: 11371.49
avg WW damage: 15201.60
avg 15r exec damage: 6819.06
using a few of the "worst case scenario's"
2 executes in the rotation with the most pushback normally available (identical to the 3 slam rotation just with executes at 4.5 and 7.5):
1.0s BT pushback
1.0s WW pushback
2842.8725+1900.2=4743.0725 effective damage lost to pushback
2(6819.06)=13638.12 damage done by executes
13638.12-4743.0725=8895.0475 effective damage gained from executes
every other combination of executes/pushback is comming up with the same sort of results.
long story short, use every GCD possible sub 20%. I would say though that if you use rend in your rotation you should rend > execute, provided the boss will not die before rend goes it's full rotation.
For example, lets say you gain bloodsurge and your audio begins to scream "PERFECT!!!!!". When and if you hit your Slam (which btw has a longer window now due to the fourset) an RNG will determine weather or not that bloodsurge just procd another one.
If it did, and your audio (or power aura's or whatever) alerts you to it again, you decide to take it and hit a second slam, it will gain a haste buff lowering the duration of its GCD by a third.
So, Bloodsurge procs, you hit it, and begin a 1.5 second GCD. As your GCD makes its revolution you're alerted to a second bloodsurge, you hit that one at a reduced GCD of 1 second.
^ Awesome ty, very helpful response.
Hahah Destruyen, I feel like you say that once a day, minimum.
How much does frame rate/Latency hurt, I mean other than the obvious - the screen isn't moving, I don't have that problem, I flow well enough...that saurfang though, that really bothers me - it's very possible that I just need to upgrade my equipment for the better numbers because I am following the advice here and I have the gear too.
