Is Crit still Best stat over Multi Strike as fury?

4 posts in this topic

So, i have looked at a few sites and some have Multistrike over crit atm. i'll be honest i'm not a hardcore gamer that has time anymore like i used to 10 years ago to go through ever sim and website to see whats best for my veteran Warrior class. all through WOD Crit has been BIS but is that still so?

Crit is and will always be top priority as Fury.  (At least until we are capped).


More Crit=More Enrage=More Damage. There is only 1 plate item per socket in Highmaul, so you cant choose anyway. Just Enchant/Socket Crit in everything.

From what I've heard, Crit Rating begins losing priority once you're raid buffed crit chance is 30% or higher. You need about 2,000 crit rating (unbuffed) to achieve this though, which from the gear I've looked at, this isn't very likely even with Mythic BRF gear.


I ran some sims last week using the sample Fury (1h) profiles in simcraft, and it seemed to support this. These profiles take BRF gear for normal, heroic, mythic, and "BiS" (665, 680, 695, 701) and I believe they also include the tier17 set bonuses. Here are the results that I got:


Gear / iLvl / Str / Crit / Haste / Mastery / Mult / Vers / Crit % (buffed)

17P (1h) / 630 / 1 / 0.46 / 0.43  / 0.41 / 0.42 / 0.32 / 22.88%

17N (1h) / 665 / 1 / 0.57 / 0.54  / 0.54 / 0.53 / 0.42 / 23.34%

17H (1h) / 680 / 1 / 0.61 / 0.56 / 0.57 / 0.57 / 0.46  /24.75%

17M (1h) / 695 / 1 / 0.65 / 0.65 / 0.65 / 0.63 / 0.51 / 26.65%

17B (1h) / 701 "BiS" / 1 / 0.60 / 0.65 / 0.67 / 0.63 / 0.51 / 34.50%



As you can see the weighted value of each stat (other than Versatility) is pretty close, with Crit being the highest value stat for item levels below Mythic BRF gear. You should be aware though that these stat weights move around a bit depending on what your personal stat distribution looks like.


It's also worth noting that the "BiS" profile isn't really possible for this tier. It has Mythic Warfoged BRF gear with sockets in every slot. Which I'm going to go ahead and say isn't really going to happen for anyone prior to the next raid tier...


So, bottom line: Yes, Crit is the best stat, especially for this raid tier. In later tiers, when we can more easily get Crit Chance above 30%, the other main DPS stats will out weigh Crit.


Edit: Ek... that table formatting didn't go through at all, tried to clear it up.

30% buffed is fully achievable in HM HC gear, I'm 665 and have 27.59% buffed, crit will always be top no matter the ilvl, it's just logic, after that, Mastery and Multistrike are so close that it's not really comparable besides maybe about 0.06% difference, but you'll naturally get more haste anyway so I wouldn't worry too much, like above poster said, gem and enchant crit and you're golden, also I can't recommend lvl 3 upgrades blacksmithing gear with crit on high enough, it's better than HM HC gear and you can stat choose, HM helm doesn't have crit, neither does the chest so those should be 2 pieces you go for.

      Hi, Does anyone of you know how much haste is enough for demon blades to proc properly ? I'm actually at 20% (crit 40% mast 20%) I can switch to 50% crit but I will have 6% haste. 
      There is now a debate whether the proc chance of demon blades during GCD is actually a buff or a nerf, if anyone could bring opinion on that too it would be great.
      thank you.

      Union is an alliance guild on the PVE server Uldum, we are currently 4/7 mythic and looking to add 1 mage to our ranks. Union has been around since Vanilla and has had the same core of raiders for years. We pride ourselves on raiding just 10 hours per week and being able to maintain top 150 US throughout the last tiers of raiding. We raid:

      Tuesday 8-11 EST (5-8 PST)
      Thursday 8-11 EST (5-8 PST)
      Sunday 7-11 EST (4-8 PST)

      We are looking for a mage that not only parses high, but has good survival instincts and always comes prepared to each raid.

      ABOUT US
      We are a very social guild LFM for progression/semi-casual raiding and leveling. 
      When we say "semi-casual," we mean that we raid two days for three hours, can laugh about a wipe but are still serious about progression. We plan to do Normal raids (not for long) before going on to Heroic and Mythic.
      New players and all levels welcomed. We are VERY new player and new role friendly and have a few new players in the raid group already. We will work with you and get you trained up. So don't worry! 
      We do have some PvPers and an experienced RBG leader so PvP isn't out of the question.
      We're almost always on Discord and we joke around a lot. Some jokes aren't appropriate so keep that in mind. (Recommended 18+)
      Currently we are using the EPGP system ( The addon EPGP (DKP Reloaded), EPGP Lootmaster, DBM, and GTFO are required to be downloaded and kept up-to-date on raid nights.
      Fridays & Sundays 8pm - 11pm PST. (10pm - 1am Server Time.) NOTE: Flasks, foods, potions, and enchants will be provided for raiders on a first-come first-serve basis. People who contribute to the guild bank will also have preference. Guild repairs provided on raid nights. Trials will be provided with the aforementioned items if we can spare them after the main raiders. CURRENT PROGRESSION

         We are a somewhat newly formed raiding guild focused 
      on providing a home to the serious players of Emerald Dream that
      want to progress through all content but can only commit a limited amount of time to the game. The core members and leadership of the guild that returned for Legion have been playing games together for 7+ years and quite a few of us know each other in real life. 
         We come from a plethora of locations, careers, and video game experiences but our love for gaming at a higher level has bonded us together. Our first mission at hand is to establish a roster of 40-45 members which will allow our members to have a 'show up when you want' attendance policy. Our progression raid invite priority will be based on attendance percentage. To accomplish this we are sounding the 'Call to Arms' in search of just a few more skilled raiders to  finish off our roster.

      Greetings everyone!
      I'm new to this site and abbreviations in general when it comes to WoW, since it was 4 years ago since I played WoW. I've played for some time now as an Arms Warrior and finally found out that "Helgar" gives you the quest for the hidden Arms artifact, when you've reached "AK3".
      Now what I am wondering is, what does "AK3" mean and how do I obtain it? Thank you for your time,
