Disc Trinket Advice, Please!

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys, need some advice. My BiS trinkets are listed as Demonic Phylactery and Desecrated Shadowmoon Insignia. I currently have Desecrated Shadowmoon Insignia, and Demonic Phylactery. I also, however, have Intiution's Gift. Should I go for the Insignia and Phylactery? Or Insignia and Gift? The spirit doesn't quite make up for the amount of mana I save with the reduced cost of spells, but that massive amount of crit... Gift upgraded gives me 436 int, 436 spirit, and 3,512 crit, vs the Phylactery's 359 int 359 haste and 702 reduced mana cost. I do have some trouble with mana, but between the channeled mana pots and Power Word: Solace (or should I go for Mindbender?) I do okay.

Which two should I go for?

Hi,

 

Ill give my 10c worth without going into a 400 page spreadsheet and 6 years of research.

 

TL;DR - IMO DSI and Phylactery

 

The fundamentals IMO come down to how the Gift and Phylactery operate.

 

The gift gives the crit buff for 15 seconds every 90 seconds. The buff is limited to that window and causes my dislike for it. If you cant cast mass PoH or spam PW:S for that 15 seconds and have enough damage to warrant the spam (maybe gorefiend feast) then it will end up as "overshielding".

 

At the higher gear levels  the value of haste increases allowing you to lower the GCD and cast more shields. The Phylactery is a flat mana reduction which means IMO you are able to sustain a higher level of healing over the course of the whole fight as you have a higher effective mana pool and i find that more desirable than a crit burst every 15 seconds.

 

Empowered archangel devalues crit and if you are using AA on cd then you get a 100% crit chance every 30 seconds anyway.

 

 

As for the mana.

Solace will give you more if you use it on cd properly. If you find you cant spare the GCD or you suck at using it (LOL) then minbender isnt too far behind and is only required to be remebered once per minute.

 

I have made a few assumptions and the age old in a vacuum vs in reality and trying to squeeze out the last smidge of healing will always leave some open to critique but these are my thoughts none the less.

 

Happy Killing

Brew

Awesome, okay, thank you very much :) Been using the Phylactery, and I'll stick with it. Same with Solace. Been debating on which one to use for weeks now.

Hi Brew - could you expand a little on how to use Solace on CD properly - I'm assuming "every time it's up, mate" is probably an oversimplification? ;)  I use Solace, but am unsure if I'm doing so properly - would appreciate your 10c worth

      Hello everyone,
       
      First of all here is my armory link : http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/archimonde/Felantril/simple
      So I recently got some trinkets and I'm pretty confused about which one I should take, I looked at the comparison on here but it didn't really help, I hope you guys can.
      Here are the trinkets I have equipped at the moment :
      860 Thrice-Accursed Compass (1,353 Agility, 322 Critical Strike, Haste and Mastery)
      880 Tempered egg of Serpentix (1,631 Agility)
      And in my bags I have :
      850 Stormsinger Fulmination Charge (1,233 Agility)
      865 Eye of Skovald (986 Critical Strike)
       
      I do not care about the item level at all, I think it's worth saying.
      Can you help me figuring out which trinket should I use? 
      Thanks !

      So,
      Which trinket should I be using (obviously arms warriors are not concerned with iLvl because Mastery is desired over strength.
      I have the 820 iLvl trinket from a timewarped dungeon and that with heroism, Battle Cry, Potion, trinket use, could provide an extreme amount of dps burst which is also on a 1.5m CD. It seems like an obvious choice but I wanted to hear any thoughts or opinions that people have since I'll be losing 500+ static mastery. Also, the use effect gives around 20-24% increased damage during colossus smash. 
      Thoughts?...

      I will keep this brief as I know folks like to get to the point!
      We are a 7/7M 3/3H raid team looking to add one Resto Shaman or one Holy/Disc Priest to our core raid team. We are on the PVE server Uldum and have been raiding since Vanilla. We raid Tues and Thurs from 8-11 EST and Sunday from 7-11EST. Hit me up in game if this sounds like a match with what you are looking for and we can chat, look at logs, etc!

      Greetings everyone!
      I'm trying to figure out if Aran's Relaxing Ruby ( http://www.wowhead.com/item=142157/arans-relaxing-ruby&bonus=3453%3A3453 ) is viable for Enhancement.
      There are 2 particular moments about it:
      Does it scale with our mastery as other trinkets or no (because it doesn't increase written damage on it)
      Does it proc often from all our attacks + according to changes in 7.1.5 on the PTR soon we will be running all with fury of air - that means even more magic attacks per second. 
      What do you think about that trinket?
      P.S. at the moment I still don't have one that's why can't test it

      I'm currently using Bloodthirsty Instinct (865) and Eye of Command (860). These two trinkets have worked up a good job so far but today I got Tirathon's Betrayal (880) from the bounty cache. Do you think I should change my Eye of Command with it? Kinda in the dilemma here. Any help is appreciated!
