10 Item Levels or ~100 intellect?

2 posts in this topic

I feel like I'm making the right decision, although these two pieces would probably be replaced if I actually took this alt through raids. Anyway... I'm wondering if it's worth swapping a 695 socketed boot for a 2 piece 685 LFR tier piece which would give 98 more intellect in the end, however losing 103 multistrike plus the socket.

Intellect is roughly 2 times the value of your secondary stats, so if it really is 98 intellect vs 103 MS + socket (50 mastery?) then go for the 98 intellect.

      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), 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

      Greetings fellow warlocks and theorycrafters, I need your help with something
      I recently got the Naraxas Spiked Tongue trinket (840), but I'm not sure its an upgrade. 
      Heres a link to my armory:
      Here's a link to the items I'm considering: (Only does 158,261 proc damage on live it seems) (1073 Int, 882 haste)
      Equipping the tongue would drop me ~2% haste, and I'm already sub-30% so I'm not sure if it would be an upgrade.
      Which also brings me to my next point. What would be the best way for me to calculate if a trinket with a proc or use effect is an upgrade over raw stats?
      Additionally, as you can see on my armory page I have most of the class hall set equipped, and I do have access to the 8-set bonus aswell.
      How would be the best way to judge wether going for the 8-set bonus is a dps increase? Similarly, how would I judge whether or not dropping the 6-set bonus is the right move? 
      Any help or feedback would be very welcome.

      Hi All, 
      I am part of a raiding guild in Aus/NZ & we have quite a few DPS.  Due to mythic being restricted to 20 people, i'm finding myself on the bench.  Now I know it's early on, but we've cleared Heroic and I need to pick up my DPS.  So I come to you guys for some help.

      I feel that due to the movement requirements of Mythic encounters, i'm quite hindered with steady main target dps.  I can squeeze good aoe burst dps, but find that after my first opening sequence, my numbers just drop off too rapidly.

      I'm using (I believe) the suggested rotation listed here on icyveins.  

      Here is a link to our Heroic Clear from the 28th Sept, our first run after the Class changes.
      Talamia Elemental Shaman - Heroic Emerald Nightmare (
      Here is my Armory link.
      Talamia - Elemental Shaman - I have haste gems, in order to see if casting quicker helped.  As a JC, i don't mind having to replace them.

      I found when using the compare facility on - my mastery is way high  (3k)  - with Versatility (900) and Haste (2.8k) being much lower, but crit is around the right place (11.6k).

      Most of the drops i've gotten, have mastery on it.  Very little has Crit & Versatility, which seem like the preferred states.
      I run dungeons with little problems, unless there are movement fights, but even then, they are shorter and much easier to compensate with, especially with a good healer / tank.

      850 mark of dargul (932 crit, 419 speed) vs
      840 no proc trinket (1,123 agi, 898 mastery)
      So, basically, which is better? I'm fairly sure the 840 is stronger, but I haven't used the Mark before, so I don't know how strong/weak the proc is.
      (Mark of Dargul for proc reference:
