The problem I'm having with this is that the difference tends to be small and so WForged/socket/3rd stat play an important role. I started with the idea of helm off-set, but after getting a WF+socket chest I'm not so sure anymore....

Re: Pawkets' Feral DPS Guide & FAQ -- Updated for 6.0!

Relative stat values repeat rant Note that since the relative stat values (or stat weights or stat scaling) only tell you about the value of adding points to your gear, they won't even tell you if swapping a gem or an enchant from one stat to another is a dps gain. For that you would want to run si...

Re: Can't figure out which trinkets to use

My dps is so variable on the target dummies that I'm going to need some math to help me make my decision. If you cannot tell them one from the other on a dummy, what makes you think that you'll be able to tell on a real boss, where there's a lot more variables involved? If you're looking for a "the...

Re: Blackrock Foundry - The Iron Maidens

Any ideas on how to effectively target-switch? We're trying this on HM and apart from the fact that my DPS sucks, it's a nightmare to correctly target-swith to keep DoTs up. I've swithed to LI, so that I can dot from a distance, but I often waste time getting in range of the current target. This als...

Re: Why is my damage so high despite the MANY mistakes?

SimulationCraft default fight length is 6-9 minutes, you should be beating it pretty consistently on Butcher because of higher lust/pot/CD uptimes. This is important. Ideally you should adjust the fight length to match the fight to draw a comparison (even for pure Patchwerk). On The Butcher in part...

Re: Using/abusing warcraftlogs to see how I'm doing?

Thanks for your answer, the statistics are not as good as the ones provided by simcraft but it's more than enough to see if I'm having a reasonable number of BT buffed vs unbuffed stuff.

Using/abusing warcraftlogs to see how I'm doing?

Is there a list somewhere which summarizes the best ways to use warcraftlogs to see what you're doing right (and wrong)? Apart from the "simple" stuff (buff uptimes, damage distribution, average damage), is there an easy way to track the amount of DoT ticks or abilities which benefitted from TF and ...

How can the Bleed be as good as the Crit enchant? You don't have to sim anything, you can just think about it for 2 seconds and after you realize how important it is for us to get 2 combo points from critting then you can slap yourself on the forehead and make the investment. Care to elaborate? 500...

Re: First week of raids - how has it been?

I'm having fun, not as much as in Cataclysm, but the lack of snapshotting means I can spend less time checking multipliers/trinket procs and more looking at what's going on.

Re: Energy management.

Yeah it comes with experience..... If you look at the simcraft results, around 40% of the dps time is marked as "idle". WHEN to be idle is one of the hard parts of DPS which is resource-limited with a small pool and fast recovery. Even more so at the beginning of the expansion, when haste/regen is l...

Re: How large is the dps drop with Glyph of Savagery?

It would be interesting to compare the loss to the width of the DPS distribution. On my character, it's 15%... (+- 7.5%), making the loss from the glyph be completely invisible in a real raid setting..... At times I'm wondering if Blizzard explicitly designs talents/glyphs to be close enough to be b...

Re: Opener for RoRo+AoC

Haromm's is a RPPM trinket, AoC is a classic chance+ICD trinket. This means that an AoC proc at pull is NOT guaranteed, so you have to be a bit more flexible with DoT refreshing and keep your eyes on the bleed ratio indicators to make the most of them (and at times curse AoC for not proccing before ...

Re: Digging into logs – heroic Garry

I did several test along the evening, but I never managed to get anything higher than the ~150k vengeance from the first hit. I deleted the shadowplay movies so I can't check my timing, but I'll try again next time to see if I can manage to get the "0.1 s window".

With the changes coming up that will allow for gear to be upgraded another 8 levels, I was wondering what will this do for us trinket wise?
