Is there an inflection point for haste?

4 posts in this topic

Hello, moderators and players at Icy Veins. Wonderful site you guys have, and I'm pleased that it is as comprehensive as it looks... as I use it for everything from leveling an alt to be raid ready, or my paladin to master it.

I was wondering if I should be capping haste at about 20% or 25% and then focus on mastery for retribution paladins? I know haste is a good statistic for HP generation and many other things but I often wonder if the other stats become increasingly better as you go higher up in haste percentages.

Here is a link to the armory on my paladin in case your answer is decided by numbers moreso than principle:

Haste is going to help you more than most anything other than strength. For MoP right now I don't even think that you can get to a point where you are going to hit a wall with haste. One thing I did notice is that you are geming for hit and expertise when you could be using the gem slots to try and get strength or strength and another useful stat. If Strength>haste then reforging crit to hit or expertise and then using a strength based gem will be better off. You will loose some haste but gain more in a more powerful stat. You are also gemming for expertise and then reforging expertise to a different stat when you could have a gem with strength and haste in the same slots and then reforge crit.

I haven't come across any haste breakpoints/plateaus/thresholds for ret paladins Uthedicia.

As suggested in the fairly comprehensive guide on the Elitist Jerks forum, the difference between strength and haste as regards gemming is fairly close and you'll benefit from running personal sims to determine where you are for str:haste and therefor what to gem. Presuming that your haste weight is greater than half your str weight, you can feel safe with your current gemming.

For reforging, I believe haste is king all the way, but there is a handy spreadsheet provided on the EJ forums which you can use to get stat weights for your own gear, and thus check to see if you should drop some haste in favor of mastery.

Good luck :)

Thank you guys very much. I appreciate everything being said. I'm going to try to use Simcraft in conjunction with all this and see what happens but I'm not sure it'll come out right (kinda new to Simcraft or other DPS simulators). I'll likely have a different thread or something if I can't get anything to work.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      So, as you know, Execution Sentence was reduced by 15% in the last hotfix as seen here https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/news/20478238/hotfixes-january-18
      With that, I am curious to see if execution sentence is still worth taking over Final Verdict (without legendary cloak).
      Thoughts?

      Hello,
      the gods of rng decided to reward me today with a  Draught of Souls titanforged from the timewalking chest. My question is, do I use it when I have max stacks of crusade or just use it on cd? Say for a fight that lasts 6 mins.
      Thanks!

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids.

      We currently raid Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:00-22:00 server time. We run social/alt raids during off days in which all ranks of the guild are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is also welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with a 3 days a week schedule that you are expected to attend. However we understand things can come up but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons and world quests to gear in preparation for raids. This includes improving your artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared (i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding.

      - Experience on 4 or more bosses in EN Mythic.
      You will receive a response within 3 days but probably within 1. The trial process will last 2 weeks, sometimes longer. During the trial period you will not have loot priority over raiders however you may of course still roll.
