Item comparison?

4 posts in this topic

So I got Drape of the Dark Hunt from my Mythic box from a garrison mission but a few days ago. I got a heroic Cloak of Delving Secrets with a socket. 

 

I'm BM with 4pc and I'm just wondering is losing the stats from having mythic worth getting haste/mastery plus a socket for a mastery gem.

The Drape of the Dark Hunt wins by about 3 points on a normalized scale.

I don't really know what that means, so if you could give a little bit of an explanation that'd be awesome!

A normalized scale is where the greatest value is given a value of 1 and everything is scaled down proportionally.  In this case, it means that Agility is given a value of 1 since it is worth the most.  Taking value from Azor's hunter guide, Mastery is worth 0.48, Haste 0.47, MS 0.45, and Crit 0.42.  From there you can multiply the amount of stats by their respective weight, adding in the 35/50 of a stat from the gem socket.  You can also use this gear comparison spreadsheet to check, using a slight estimate when adding sockets (it does not support WF atm however).

      Hello,
      I was trying to discover what the opinion of most people who play Arcane Mage is, regarding trinkets.
      I have four in my bags from which to chose:
      1. Blossom of Pure Snow, ilvl 489 (equipped)
      2. Essence of Terror LFR version, ilvl 483 (equipped)
      3. Light of the Cosmos LFR version, ilvl 476
      4. Relic of Yu'lon, ilvl 476
      From the askmrrobot.com website, it states that both Light of the Cosmos and Relic of Yu'lon are rated more highly and are better to have equipped, rather than Blossom of Pure Snow and Essence of Terror LFR.
      I would like to know what others think, as the Light of the Cosmos and Relic of Yu'lon do not give any stats, but have a "chance" of increasing Intellect for 15 and 20 seconds, respectively, whereas the Blossom of Pure Snow has a fixed Intellect addition of 1,079 with an on-use Critical Strike increase for 15 seconds, and the Essence of Terror LFR has a fixed Intellect addition of 1,021 with a "chance" of increasing Haste for 20 seconds.
      To me, it seems counter-productive to rely upon a "chance" of a temporary Intellect bonus versus a static gain in Intellect, but as I am still comparatively new to WoW and have only played Arcane, I would enjoy hearing the opinion of those who have experience and skill with this Class/Spec.
      Thank you!
