Best In Slot - Mistweaver?

2 posts in this topic

Hi Dudes and Dudettes //

I have been having a hard time finding information on BiS gear for my Mistweaver. We are currently raiding Emerald Nightmare and I am primarily raid and multi target healing. Trying to avoid fistweaving. Ask Mr Robot is broken and will only show me drops from raids and legendaries, even when I sort it to bypass those. Icy-veins only lists trinkets and legendary items as well. Kind of lost here and I am trying to get better gear in between raiding for drops.

EDIT: once I logged into Ask Mr. Robot, It saved my filter to dungeons only. But I would still love your opinions!

The problem with BiS lists is that they're pretty skewed right now due to RNG.

Let's take a scenario of your chest slot.

If you want to avoid Fistweaving and doing raids, you'll be using the following prio:

Quote

1.1. Mistweaving

If you are not Fistweaving, you should use the following stat priority.

  1. Intellect;
  2. Versatility;
  3. Critical Strike;
  4. Haste = Mastery.

Note that Mastery and Haste change places depending on how much Mana you need, with Mastery being better for low-Mana situations

So, let's find a chest with Versatility and Crit for you. Here are just a few options:

At a first glance, you're probably thinking these two pieces of gear are useless to you. They're very low item level.

In reality, they can roll a "forged" buff high enough that they break item level 890+. This is true for so many pieces of gear and so many stats. If you had one of these at 860 item level, you'd be doing well. 2 main stats, great.

Suddenly, you have this piece drop: Shadow Stalker VestShadow Stalker Vest

It rolls a "forged" combo that puts it at 885. You're most likely going to take the 885, despite it not being your BiS chest. It's VERY difficult to create BiS lists, honestly. Just look for the right stats according to the priority.

      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!

      So currently our guild is progressing through all the available content as everyone else is, and on most attempts i come second or third on the healing charts, however i have started falling behind lately and i'm hoping that someone on this site can assist with bringing my heals back up.

      Is there a bis list (even if imperfectly accurate) ranking for trinkets for frost?  I only recently learned that versatility is our best stat, but SimC shows some surprising results with trinkets I wouldn't expect.  That may also be because SimC can't perfectly model all the trinkets intricacies.  So while it may be a difficult quetion to answer, I'd still like at least a ballpark idea of what I should be gunning for.  I'm not good enough with math and esoteric mechanics to trust my own judgement.  Cenarius stat stick trinket might be BIS for all I know, for reasons I don't understand (and don't really need to as long as I know the rotation).  Can someone help me out so I can at lesat try to prioritize certain dungeons or bosses?
