I been afk for about 2 weeks only to come back to a whole page od texts
I wanne add a couple of points myself on the whole last page of posts
- CW v renewal -> i have since droppped CW and started using renewal for 2 reasons, higher ilvl is increasing my hp to the point where renewal is good enough healing wise. And secondly (imho most importantly) it is off GCD, meaning u can use it whenever without losing a GCD for a mangle or something else.
- meta gem choice: if you do not have acces to the legendairy meta -> agi/3% crit dmg, yes i know i myself said there is no advantage for gemming agi over the double value secondairy stats gems, but for metas this is different. That 3% crit dmg in a crit build is immense. If you however, have completed the collect 20 secrets part of the legendairy chain, the crit dps gem is simply OP and will imo get nerfed eventually, but untill then, get it. It increased my dps by approx 15-20% depending on RNG. Wich brings me to my last point.
- considering yourself a dps: most druids run with a crit build. meaning the dmg output, if played properly should be decent. I think, why shouldnt we focus on pushing as much dmg as possible? Killing a boss faster, even if enrage timers arent an issue, is still beneficial overall. Beeing able to clear more content in the same time is always better than the oposite ^^ I will take Jin rokh as an example. Sure u can tank him outside the pool and no have to worry about the static busrt damaging ppl in the water. Sure you could use incar on tank swap to make sure you hold aggro. What i do is different however. Play like a dps with the ability for a boss to smack u in the face and not fall over and die Meaning, I pre pot -> beserk. Tank it in the pool, use incar when in the pool AND with a decent vengeance stack + re pot. On our last heroic JR kill i was top dps, granted, i have the legendairy meta, but our dps are far from bad, I produced a whooping 200k dps. Tank dps is, imho, an important part of the overall dps.
anyway, thats my input. I hope the points were helpfull to some1 out there ^^
