Too much hit?

5 posts in this topic

Hi guys!  Brand new to this type of forum thing so I'll try to be as short as possible.


I know the Hit cap is 7.5%, but whit my gear and standard gemming i have a whopping 12.12% after reforging.  I honestly don't know if this is OK or if I need to address some gemming and whatnot.


Here is a link to my rogue:


I will greatly appreciate any help with this, because in my opinion I am not benefiting from this.

Even if you address the gemming, you will only drop ~1.6% and either regem for pure agility or Agil/Stam.


I do not know rogues (hunter myself) but you do get 'some' benefit from hit meaning going the Agil/Stam or even pure agility may still be a slight dps loss as from your sockets, you are sacrificing 20agility for 160hit.


So the question is, while above hit cap, does 20agility do more dps than 160hit. I can't answer this.


Also note the best solution I can see to this problem is a different trinket to the Shado-Pan Assault one. That will drop your hit by roughly 3%.


GL and I hope a rogue can give you better advice.


Edit 340 rating give 1% hit. Just to justify my estimates.

Definitely start gemming agility Stam in your blue sockets instead of Agility Hit, and reforge out of hit everywhere you can. but sometimes you'll just end up way over hit cap. especially if you're using a hit trinket, but in your case much like mine the proc on the hit trinket is best in slot.


at least as a rogue you'll still gain a little bit on your white damage when you've over cap. my dps spec runs almost 10% hit as a frost DK.

      I'm trying to get back into dps. I've been tanking since cata and I'd like to try my hand at dps'ing again. I feel like I should be pulling higher numbers but I just can't get them up. Any advise?

      So right now I play Sub as my main spec. I mained outlaw for the first week or so of Legion and honestly I hated sub (not sure why) but after I tried it, it is now my preferred spec among the 3. I know that sub scales the best with gear and is the most superior spec around 870ilv too. I never see sub in pve and usually outlaw/sin mainly (for mythic+ and raids) so I was wondering if I am doing anything wrong?
      For my talents, I use weaponmaster as it is very good for aoe pulls (I can pull about 400k dps on 3-4 targets) then followed by the traditional talents for pve sub (I go master of subtlety for raids) 
      I know my stats are not the best for sub as I need to get more mastery/vers rather than haste (crit is still pretty good if i'm correct)
      I couldn't spec into Akaari's Soul as it breaks cc in pvp with means I loose a hefty amount of dps which is very annoying and I am debating to repsec into it and put up with it in pvp for the extra dps increase.
      My weapon pathing looks like this:
      I seem to be doing everything correctly for dps but I do about 250-300k dps on single target and stays about 200k the whole time. Sometimes can go up to 350-400k depending on how smooth the fight goes but if it's anything to do with my weapon/talents/ilv/stats and even playstyle then please let me know, thanks!
      Edit: I have respecced my weapon to now look like this: 
      I should be doing better now ^^ Appreciate the help
