Outlaw trinkets - confuzzled

5 posts in this topic

So the outlaw trinket simulation has Infallible Tracking Charm (vs demons) #3 overall... I know nobody can answer conclusively, but does that seem like it can be even remotely right?  Proc or not, I do not see how an 815 item can compete with raid tier stuff.  

Also, nature's call is the worst trinket I've ever seen.  Yeesh.

You must be looking at outdated information. It was absolutely competitive with other trinkets in pre-raid tier, but now that M+ and raids are open it's not strong.

These are Outlaw trinket rankings

Yeah, looks like you are correct - the trinket simulation in the class guide must not have been updated recently.

So with that in mind - my SimCraft puts my 870 Chrono Shard (set bonus) about 4k ahead of an 855 Horn - since I don't think I'd see any real difference in 10,000 sims or so, what do you all think of the two?  Seems like the on-demand stat boost would be really nice on certain bosses.

It's a tough argument, the difference between on-use and proc trinkets.

I tend to keep both on hand, unless there is one that's distinctly better than the other, because they're good in different situations and for different specs / playstyles. 

You're completely correct in that on-demand ones are great on certain bosses - trying to 1 phase Ilgy is a good example, since the dps required outside isn't super significant, but a big stat boost inside is very valuable. Other ones include high priority adds, if it's your job to swap, or bosses with periods of increased damage (think Gorefiend from HFC), etc. I'm sure you can figure it out lol

That's what I'll most likely do, just swap it in for M+ and Ilgy-type bosses - at least if\until I get a better one or something in the meta changes.

      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 guys. I have a choice between an 885 ilvl horn of valor, and an 855 Memento of angerboda with a socket, and I can't decide which to choose. I'm unholy, so the vers is one of my lower prio stats, and I'm thinking the socket, extra strength (since the horn basically works out at 1025 strength average) and procs makes the memento better? It seems kinda hard to imagine that with the 30 ilvl difference though. What do you guys think?

      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?

      I am currently trying to look through logs and see where I can improve my DPS as for my ilvl which is 874 I feel like I could be putting out way more damage, I have been using this site as a benchmark or idea of what I should be doing.
      I have a couple of questions such as:
      Should I be using pepper breath over old war for single target? I thought pepper breath didn't actually do the damage stated in the tooltip from looking on wowhead. For single target should I ALWAYS use SS before Crash lighting? And should I always keep my buffs up even if SS procs? For AoE should I be only using boulderfist, CL and SS/LL? Or should I keep doing the rotation/priority recommended here as I feel my Cleave is quite weak also. Is my stats ok and things like that and gear etc EG. Too much crit for example. I have also seen trinket debates here already is BiS for this tier not bloodthirsty instinct and appendages due to SS procs as of 7.1? What is better a ilvl865 spiked counter weight or a 850 plaguehive  trinket with a socket. Here is the logs for HC last week: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/286pLk7ynYBQMCmv#type=damage-done&boss=-2
      Here is the my character: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/tarren-mill/Cólotol/advanced
      Any advice, tips or guidance is welcome as am looking to improve where I can!
      Cheers!
