Do I need more haste?

4 posts in this topic

I'm debating enchanting for haste. some geared DK  told me I should have 50% haste or so. I feel like if I had some more haste I could get more attacks in.

 

I should note I just recently went for NP and need to switch out a talent for unholyblight. with that said I think my dps is lacking due to my lack of haste but feel free to let me know if thats idea is wrong.

I'm assuming you're talking about unholy since your armory is set to that.

 

So far I haven't heard of any DK stacking that much haste. I roll with Multi>Mastery>rest and my results are more than satisfactory.

This would lead me to believe it could be a rotational hickup, so I'd encourage you to post logs so some log-savvy person here can take a look.

 

I'd post my own armory for comparison, but I've logged out in tank gear.

necroblight lacking due to haste? no sir.

 

Unholy DK stat priority is either Multistrike>mastery>haste>crit OR Mastery>Multistrike>haste>crit

Necroblight aoe on paper likes more mastery but with high enough multistrike multi comes out ahead only after stacking a lot soooo yeah. I stick with multistrike myself for necro but either one works.

 

You should indeed post logs because we can help with your rotation. Where necroblight DPS can falter is basically in 2-3 main places, too many festering strikes, not enough soul reapers, bad disease uptime. For all DKS haste is an undesirable stat. Even then for a long time I can't really remember the last times DKs really valued haste. I think at the end of CATA frost 2h did for crazy killing machine procs but beyond that no.

 

So, not sure what your geared dk comrade was thinking but I cannot say his/her advice was good. Don't let gear ilvl lead you to believe they are a good player SOOOOOO many people get carried by their guilds and then suck dps wise.

 

TL;DR - stack multistrike then mastery, go get some logs, and we can perfect your rotation :D

or get redfellas weak aura script, that thing truly is amazing

You definitely don't want more haste for unholy. I'm 20 ilvl higher than you and only have 7% higher haste on the armory, and I feel like I have as much haste as I could ever need.

 

I was playing frost in Highmaul so I had a lot of haste/multistrike gear when I first switched to unholy, and I had a lot of issues with rune capping, especially when I was going through a scourge strike spam phase of my rotation. The rotation is a lot smoother, and my dps is a lot higher now that I have more mastery/multistrike gear and a lot less haste.

 

Definitely post some logs though, like our resident possessed ant eater said, there are a couple main points/concepts to necroblight that will make up the majority of your dps. Just rolling 15 stacks of NP correctly will do 20% of your total dps on gruul, and 40% of your dps on operator. and soul reapering immediately at 45% and then on CD afterwards will do another 10-15% of your total dps in just 15-20 attacks.

      So I got into a dungeon (Mana Tombs) with a level 71 Frost DK, and this guy was doing some absurd damage 1 shotting everything in his path.
      Was just wondering if anyone could possibly tell me how this guy was doing so much damage at this level

      Hi guys ! I just want to ask how much my BM haste and mastery at least should be ? been googling about it and I can't seem to find anything about it. 
      currently I'm at:
      Haste: 17.4%
      Mastery: 76.07%

      Hey all I'm a returning player and finally hit 110 on my death knight yesterday. I am currently playing a frost dk, but I'm not enjoying it as much as I thought I would. Unholy on the other hand looks pretty sweet... but from what I hear they are in a bad state atm. This might be to early to speculate, but anyone know if buffs are coming this next patch? Should I reroll now before I invest thousands of AP into frost relic? As cool as unholy looks, don't want to play a doomed spec...

      So, the item specifies Death and Decay-which Unholy also has-does it work with the spec? And how good is it in fights where you can have those 10 seconds reliably enough?

      Hello, I raided back during WotLK and Cata with a resto druid.  Back then we aimed for certain percentages of haste so we could eventually obtain the 3 extra ticks in Rejuvenation, 2 in Regrowth, and 1 in Wild Growth.  After that threshold was met we then focused on Mastery. (but back then our HoT's didn't crit)  So my question is; Are these haste threshold's still something to be aiming for?  And if so, what are these threshold's?  Does haste still affect these spells the same way?  Are there goals to be aiming for with our secondary stats?  I've been gone for a few years and any help would be greatly appreciated.
