Ret - Stat Priority Different Between Low & High Item Level?

5 posts in this topic

Okay, I have a question/questions regarding retribution paladins.

First off, this is the information I go off of. I tend to find that experts of this game recommend that gemming haste > strength produces the best dps results at high item levels. I just leveled to 90 yesterday, and I have something around 440 item level.

I've also heard that gemming primarily for strength produces better results at low item levels, but that it eventually changes into haste at some point. Can somebody give me a rough estimate of when it would be appropriate to shift the focus toward haste? And is this theory correct in the first place?

That is correct. Pre-raid 1 Strength > 2 Haste. I would probably not worry about switching to haste gemming priority till about 480ish ilvl.

Okay, that's all I needed to know :D. Thank you!

PS, I haven't used askmrrobot before... Does it generally take these things into account? Would the system calculate that change in priority upon reaching the proper gear quality?

Unfortunately no it won't automatically. Just go use the edit weights button and set strength to 4.00 and it should work fine for you. Posted Image

If you know how to use SimC, you can also use that to get specific weights for your current gear itemization to make AMR's suggestions more optimal. The default weights that AMR uses are generally good, but from an "overall" perspective.

      Hey all, 
      Been simming my char and im being directed massively towards vers and crit now, after hitting around 21% haste. SC is showing my haste to be worth close to zero now ive hit that point. 
      Im simming around 330k and outdoing this a good bit, which is ok. 
      Ive recently got BiS legendary in the cloak, and not sure if i trust the SC weights anymore. 
      Im leaning to going pure haste > crit > verse > mastery, regardless of the weights in SC. 
      Anyone any advice or tips around this?

      Hello, I raided back during WotLK and Cata with a resto druid.  Back then we aimed for certain percentages of haste so we could eventually obtain the 3 extra ticks in Rejuvenation, 2 in Regrowth, and 1 in Wild Growth.  After that threshold was met we then focused on Mastery. (but back then our HoT's didn't crit)  So my question is; Are these haste threshold's still something to be aiming for?  And if so, what are these threshold's?  Does haste still affect these spells the same way?  Are there goals to be aiming for with our secondary stats?  I've been gone for a few years and any help would be greatly appreciated.
