Trash BiS

8 posts in this topic

I posted something similar in the DK forum, but no bites. So here goes...

In 5.2 the Blood DK BiS weapon is a strength polearm.

Bo-Ris, Horror in the Night

http://ptr.wowhead.com/item=95498

This is a trash drop. I don't know if any other classes have this situation, but I find it interesting that obtaining this weapon won't be linked to progression....just down to how many trash runs I can make my guild go on with me!

I can't decide if I like this or not.....I guess if I get it in the first couple of weeks from trash, I'll be happy. Otherwise...its just too RNGy. I kind of like saving up my bonus rolls and hoping for a drop from a boss....feels like progression (even though it took me about 15 rolls on the Sha of Fear to get my LFR Axe).

I'm just interested in what you peeps think....

Are you certain it's BiS? We haven't started updated our BiS lists yet, but that would be surprising that a non heroic weapon is best in slot.

According to my findings (google-skills over 9000) this weapon does not drop from trash. It is in fact on the shared-loot table, meaning that it has a small chance to drop from every boss in the instance.

Thanks for the info....I must admit that it didn't make much sense to me.

I guess this is a good thing? I still don't like the fact that its not tied to one boss....hard to farm!

It's sort of a pain being a shared drop. The disadvantage is that it's going to be about a 1% drop, or maybe even less, but you potentially have 12 shots at getting it every week, +3 for all your coin rolls.

You could potentially get your heroic thunderforged absolute best in slot weapon from a coin roll on heroic Jin'Rokh, which is by far the easiest heroic.

Same in my case, inv_staff_2h_zandalari_c_01.jpgDarkwood Spiritstaff (BiS for both Feral and Guardian) is a shared drop from any boss in ToT. I got two of the LFR version in consecutive boss kills (Lei Shen and then joined one in progress and got another off Primordius).

      Here's a link to my character:
      http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/uther/Drchancimus/simple
       
      With max boneshield stacks i'm at:
      13% crit
      37% haste
      38% mastery
      6% versatility
      3% dodge
      18% parry
       
      Maybe i'm just terrible at googleing, but i can't figure out when i should stop trying to stack haste, sadly i have way too much mastery; i'd like to have less; just trying to see if anyone has worked the numbers out.

      Hey guys, had a sick lootday today... I ended up getting 3 upgrades having a hard time to decide which two to use.
       
      I've got:
      http://www.wowhead.com/item=139330/heightened-senses ilvl 880
      http://www.wowhead.com/item=137419/chrono-shard ilvl 880
      and http://www.wowhead.com/item=138222/vial-of-nightmare-fog ilvl 885

      I've read that Chrono Shard has weak procc chance, but the stats are as right as they get..

      But then again the procc heal from Nightmare is amazing.

      Any suggestions or calculations out there?

      Thanks!

      Hey all. Last week I was asked to tank my guild's HC progression on Ursoc and Renferal right as I logged in. I felt I did decent for not tanking on a DK in a couple of years. I made talent and some minor affordable enchant/gem changes on the fly. However, tonight, I dropped the ball immensely. Not everything was my fault, dropped green stuffs and squished bugs on the bridge, etc.
       
      The main change that I did tonight was after pulling the boss I would open with DRW to pop up my BS and such to be less spiky at the pull. And I think that's where I went wrong. I do realize that I was late on a couple of Def CDs. The biggest thing that's bothering is that I feel my BS was just burned through pretty damn quick and I found myself Rune and RP starved, a lot as compared to last week.
       
      The following are the last weeks kill and this week's pull/wipes. If you don't mind, critique my performance so I'm better able to fix/figure out my pull and not feel like I was bumbling mess tonight as compared to last week.
