Juggernaut's Focusing Crystal

I was wondering what folks think about this trinket?

 

Here's my "back of a fag packet" analysis (don't worry I'm British, so fag is not a hate word- it means cigarette!).

Our guild killed the fallen protectors last week. I was doing around 97k dps, equating to approx 55M damage for the whole fight of 9 mins 30 secs.

Ok....using the calculator...

2.65% of the total damage is ~1.47M. This doesn't seem like that much....not quite 2x my total health.

HPS would then be this 1.47M divided by the fight length....2.58k HPS

This seemed quite low to me....but, comparing it to my HPS for the fight which was ~47k, this would be a 5% boost (assuming all else equal). This sounds quite good to me...

So, cutting the long short....do you folks think this trink is any good? Will you other DKs be using your bonus rolls on Iron Jug?

Cheers,
Nic

hmm, looking at the other possible tinket options I don't think the 2.56% heal are that great. I would say the CD reduction and the area of effect damage reduction on use are better options.

Even though I'm currently using this (the only tank trinket so far to drop from SoO for us) I'd have to agree with Farnion. Especially as it has dodge as base. If that whole amount would be mastery I'd probably have this to switch in place of the AoE reduction trinket on some fights, but I see the CD reduction and AoE damage reduction far above this one.

Monks and Druids might like this one though.

Agreeing with Herlee.

 

The Focusing Crystal might have its uses for tanks with weaker selfhealing but since DKs are pretty much built around selfhealing, the amount from this trinket seems too low to be of much use.

I agree with Herlee those are the perfered best trinkets for DK tanking, though  inv_jewelry_orgrimmarraid_trinket_19.jpgJuggernaut's Focusing Crystal is great for pulling trash mobs where you might be tanking alot of low to medium damage dealing mobs. It helps in evening out the spikes of incoming damage.

 

The last choice for 2ndary trinket is  inv_jewelry_trinket_09.jpgVial of Dragon's Blood

 

 

Combining both inv_jewelry_orgrimmarraid_trinket_19.jpgJuggernaut's Focusing Crystal and inv_jewelry_trinket_09.jpgVial of Dragon's Blood is a great combo when you dont need to worry about having alot of hp but more avoidance and mastery.

      Hello,
      the gods of rng decided to reward me today with a  Draught of Souls titanforged from the timewalking chest. My question is, do I use it when I have max stacks of crusade or just use it on cd? Say for a fight that lasts 6 mins.
      Thanks!

      Hello everyone!

      I am searching for a WA that shows the icon of the trinket Mote of Sancification and a timer with the cooldown. I am using this trinket lately and I would like to know if it's on cooldown or not during fights.
      I looked online for a lot of them but couldn't find any that were up to date and actually works.

      Hello everyone,
       
      First of all here is my armory link : http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/archimonde/Felantril/simple
      So I recently got some trinkets and I'm pretty confused about which one I should take, I looked at the comparison on here but it didn't really help, I hope you guys can.
      Here are the trinkets I have equipped at the moment :
      860 Thrice-Accursed Compass (1,353 Agility, 322 Critical Strike, Haste and Mastery)
      880 Tempered egg of Serpentix (1,631 Agility)
      And in my bags I have :
      850 Stormsinger Fulmination Charge (1,233 Agility)
      865 Eye of Skovald (986 Critical Strike)
       
      I do not care about the item level at all, I think it's worth saying.
      Can you help me figuring out which trinket should I use? 
      Thanks !
