Gearing up and T15 bonus (tank)

2 posts in this topic

Hello fellow protadins =) last night I was lucky enough to get my hands on some shiny loot, but I'm struggling trying to figure out what to equip, first of all, here's my armory, as a 10M normal raider in a "not-so-progress-oriented" guild I never got past 2pc bonus last patch, and last week I got my 553 tiers hands from the celestials, but decided not to equip to avoid breaking the set, the thing is last night I got Darkfallen Shoulderplates and it got me thinking, I've done the math and, by taking out both T15 pieces and equipping those 553 pieces I can get an extra 3% haste, but I can't make up my mind wether I should keep or drop the bonus, it's worth noting that I decided not to switch to EF, still running SS so I think I'm not getting full benefit from 2pc.


Would love to hear some opinions, thanks!

Yeah, if you're SS build I would break it and go with higher Ilvl pieces  :)

EF got a nerf this week and SS is pretty close in value now so all good there.


Good luck! smile.png

      Greetings fellow warlocks and theorycrafters, I need your help with something
      I recently got the Naraxas Spiked Tongue trinket (840), but I'm not sure its an upgrade. 
      Heres a link to my armory:
      Here's a link to the items I'm considering: (Only does 158,261 proc damage on live it seems) (1073 Int, 882 haste)
      Equipping the tongue would drop me ~2% haste, and I'm already sub-30% so I'm not sure if it would be an upgrade.
      Which also brings me to my next point. What would be the best way for me to calculate if a trinket with a proc or use effect is an upgrade over raw stats?
      Additionally, as you can see on my armory page I have most of the class hall set equipped, and I do have access to the 8-set bonus aswell.
      How would be the best way to judge wether going for the 8-set bonus is a dps increase? Similarly, how would I judge whether or not dropping the 6-set bonus is the right move? 
      Any help or feedback would be very welcome.

      850 mark of dargul (932 crit, 419 speed) vs
      840 no proc trinket (1,123 agi, 898 mastery)
      So, basically, which is better? I'm fairly sure the 840 is stronger, but I haven't used the Mark before, so I don't know how strong/weak the proc is.
      (Mark of Dargul for proc reference:

      So i dont wanna rant about itemlevel epics and rares but i probably will. 
      i just dont get the itemlevel vs stats calculation. why can you recieve and item thats up too 35 itemlevel higher with the same secondary stats as an 815 item ? i know that int/agi/Strength and stamina have a set amount for each itemlevel.
      I mean for my shadowpriest im having a hard time swapping my heroic ring ive got thats got an itemlevel of 825 but rolled with a socket, its got 1k haste and 600crit, which is the same amount of haste and crit on my 840 ring i got. but since it got a socket its still worth keeping the heroic ring.
      i just feel like gearing in this expansion seems wierd, you have to trick groups to invite you because you dont have that 845+ ilvl only because the gear you get in mythics isnt better then the gear you get in heroics. So what i do to get into court of stars and arcway groups ive gotta respec holy equip that gear which is my offspec gear but because that 846 ilvl and my shadow only is 841 and then ask to join the group. 
      (yes ive been unlucky with gear for shadow, no relic drops my shadow weapon is 863 and my holy is 875 or something, and basically no mythic drops what so ever for shadow spec etc) 
      i guess i should include i havent missed one mythic reset yet so its not like ive been slacking.
      anyway this is how i feel its wierd, strange abit uncomfortable to be honest. Obviously try not to judge people by thier itemlevel because they might just be as well geared as they can without being at that magic number of 849 ilvl+ just because it would simply be a DPS loss.

      Hi there,
      I started playing again with legion and would need some advice regarding my gear.
      I just wanted to know if there is a maximum value for crit that you stack up to?
      Here is a link to the armory:
      At the moment, I have the following stats ingame (not buffed):
      28387 Int
      58% Crit
      7% Haste
      16% Mastery
      Should I just further stack and maximize my crit value? Or is there a cap where the stat priority changes?
      I think my single target DPS is fine so far. But when I see my AoE DPS then I am not sure if I am doing something wrong.
      Regarding the DPS of a DH or a Monk it seems that I'm dealing not that much AoE Damage. Not sure if other saw the same.
      My rotation for 3+ Mobs:
      Living Bomb on CD
      Phoenix Flames if available
      Cast Fireball, use Fireblast to gain procs
      When procc avaiilable, use flamestrike
      I repeat this rotation until there are less then 3 mobs. At this point I just start to cast Fireball and use my proccs / fireblast if ready
      Anyone got some tips? Am I doing something wrong here?
      Thanks a lot in advance for all answers. As I am not a native speaker, there might be some mistakes in the text

      Combat logs
      Single Target Rotation
      Corruption, COA, Unstable Aff, Haunt ( used for opening, 2+ shards mid fight, and when boss health low), Drain Soul
         -sometimes I use haunt every other rotation(after it depletes) to boost dps by 100   ticks or so, instead of waiting to have atleast 2 shards before utilizing haunt again
         -I'm just now starting to routinely use dark soul:misery to boost haste whenever possible.
         - I don't utilize Demonic Circle nor Demonic Gateway​   
      Hello to All Concerned,
      I am new to posting topics on forums, but a veteran (since BC) in WoW. I took a break after early cata and came back in April. I will keep this short.
      Avg Dps (via Recount): 22-24k
      ilvl 698
       Optimized enchants toward Haste. I am utilizing PVE/PVP gear for stats.
      Overall, taking into concept the extra dps I could gain by using demon circ and gateway, I should not receive reports of 22k dps when I'm actually trying. I restart Recount as well as ask for others recount data and it all states the general area of 22-24k. Would someone with experienced eyes open mine.
      Thanks in advance
      S.N. Ive always wanted to be the best Warlock ever, I don't do alts because I haven't mastered my main. I feel that if I can be considered one of the top wow players I can help those who are in my position now. Make sense?
