I am looking next week after wednesday restart friendly group who wants go mythic dungeons or do normal raid. I have never got further than dragons in emerald nightmare (I've done others but not dragons,cena or xavius). so i am looking group for doing raid :).
My gear is http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/stormrage/Rhyovor/simple and i am tank :)
I have two ilvl 630 belts with same agil and stam.
the one has 64 crit, and 94 mastery, the other has 82 haste, 85 multistrike, and a socket i can throw a 35 crit gem into.
im looking for a table of some sort with points for each amount, like
agil = 1
crit = .8
haste = .6
so with this table
first belt second belt
51.2 70.5 49.2 51 28
* these numbers are completely made up by me*
this is saying my second belt is better, but idk.
because even though an item level could be higher, it isnt always better if it doesnt make up for the amount of crit and mastery it takes away??
something along these lines, where i can find out if it having a socket makes up for it not being crit and mastery, if you guys know what i mean.
thanks in advance.
I'm looking for some insight into the gearing strategy for challenge modes as a tank.
Honestly, how should I be gearing? From the guide on the webiste, I understand that going crit/mastery is an option. What does this mean though - am I to use DPS pieces and reforge/gem for crit mastery after hit/expertise caps, ignoring defensive stats? Is this strategy viable for challenge modes?
I ran a sim using the Challenge mode settings and modeled over TMI to find my stat weights.
I plugged it into AMR and it returned a full stamina gemming and reforges to parry. I understand that the Theck-Meloree Index is designed to quantify "smoothness". As such I can see why it gems for full stamina. Given these two models, which one should I be using for challenge modes?
1. Do I use DPS pieces and crit/mastery gemming/reforges with stamina enchants for crit/mastery gearing?
2. How would you gear/gem for challenge modes as a protection warrior?
Having gone through a few challenge mode attempts and successfully completed gold for SPM, the best advice for any prot warrior gearing specifically for CMs is to find high ilvl avoidance gear (dodge/parry) with multiple gem slots. The mobs hit relatively hard and gearing for avoidance increases rage generation and thus SBLK/SBAR uptime. If you can't find avoidance gear, reuse the DPS gear but regem and reforge it properly.
Tanking CMs don't require the best gear to do but needs the player to manage both offensive and defensive cooldowns for the party as well as himself/herself.
Good luck to all aspiring prot tanks and hope you get your gold without much trouble!
as far as assassination goes, I'm doing a healthy amount of dps around the 290-300k mark, however, my raidleader was asking me to try out subtlety to see if it'll turn out to be more dps than I'm currently pulling. My question is whether or not I'd have to scrap almost my entire gear set and somehow try to pull in much more crit, or if a simple reforging out of mastery would do(after gemming and enchanting of course). (nevermind the talents, I use a very weird build for farming old content)
