I think most players overestimate the value of haste in terms of the tangible impact on your gameplay. Yes, if you were running Rune before and you drop down to a low-haste setup it is going to be a bit of a drop in regen, but I don't think you'll feel its very significant, if you even notice it at all. Having played the WoD Beta a fair bit I can say that the addition of Pandemic to our bleeds make a massive difference in ease of DoT maintenance. If I can trivially maintain SR and all my DoTs in shitty gear at level 100 then there's no way it will be an issue at 90.Hwarra wrote:But won't it hurt if we have low haste + no SotW to regen energy a bit quicker? I play with SotW because I usually lack the energy if I play without it. Im considering using FoN as 6.0 hits the live servers, but I am afraid I will be lacking energy most of the times
Also, about snapshoting. Lets assume Im still wearing RoRo after 6.0 hits. Basically, if I apply Rip with SR and TR, and after that RoRo procs.. even if I apply new Rip it won't work? I mean, it won't be applied or it will have the same amount as previous one? Not sure if I put this right but I didnt have a chance to test this on beta/ptr, so.. :f
Also, Assurance of Consequence gives you toooons of energy since it reduces the cooldown of TF to 13.662s, if you're using one (which you should be if you can, like the guide says) I'm pretty sure you're going to be worrying more about drowning in energy rather than starving of it.
When Rune of Reorigination procs, all of your bleeds will immediately start doing more damage to reflect the change in mastery; you no longer have to reapply a bleed for the stat change to take effect. The flipside to this is that even if you do apply a new bleed, it stops benefitting as soon as the proc ends, which means the amount of time our bleeds benefit from the proc is significantly reduced compared to 5.4. This is why you will see such a shift towards direct damage in our damage breakdown and the greatly reduced value of mastery on single targets.
Yeah I forgot to look into that, got too caught up in guide editing! It may have been too long ago to restore though, so we'll have to see.Hwarra wrote:Item restoration is your friend
Yes, I plan to update it the week prior to launch.Ahh and one more thing. You are going to update this guide once again when WoD is released, right?
