MW 5.4 Crit

19 posts in this topic

My main question is about that in 5.4 crit seems to be to stat to stack. The reason for this is the new mana tea is the best I can gather?

 

I couldn't seem to find a current stat weight (specifically for Mr.Robot) of how much spirit and haste should be gotten before I should start stacking just crit.

 

Here is my armory http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/thrall/Monksonius/simple

 

And my Mr.Roboto http://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/gear/usa/thrall/monksonius

 

I'm not sure if you can read my weights on that Robto page or not.

 

I read the the spirit I should cap at is 5100 but other than that I can not find an exact weight of what stats I need to focus on after that.

 

Sorry, if I'm being dumb and missed this somewhere else in the forums.

 

Thanks in advance though for any answers. biggrin.png

So, crit has been the stat to stack since Throne of thunder came out. (Maybe even before then in really high gear levels) since crit gives you more mana tea and does more healing than haste or mastery.

Basically you should stack crit and keep a low spirit build.

 

I'm going to completely re-vamp the Mr. robot weights soon because I feel that +120 int socket bonus might count for something, or at the very least to make them more "readable"

So I read that the highest you want your spirit is 5100 if you have the Legendary Meta Gem. Should I add that as a hard cap on spirit? Somone else In my guild said I should aim for the 6414 haste. Should I do that or would I be wasting too many gems on haste to get there?

 

Also, with how much stacking up and aoe'ing in SoO is RJW better than Xuen?

IMO you go for the highest haste breakpoint that requires less than maybe 4 gems(just made this up) and you dont drop below 35% ish crit.

 

Im at the 9158 breakpoint with 33.6% crit and it works for me. I set my mr robot spirit to 5K but i have 8900 even though im reforging out of it on all my pieces except 1.

 

RJW can have its uses but i find it can be very mana intensive so i find i am only using it during meta procs or Thok.

 

Most of the normal SoO fights i have used Xuen for the extra dps (Korvens amber casing on paragons, Darkshaman cleaving, spoils cleave etc).

 

RJW was good for thok and had its uses for garrosh as we move as a group from the desecrated weapons.

 

Xuen is my preferred talent beacuse it does dps and some heals but its also a set and forget CD style talent and has no impact at all on my mana management or positioning.

 

Im sure there are many different arguments for which talent to use and when so this is just my opinoin :)

This.  and thats 35% raid buffed (so about 30% unbuffed)

 

Also, IMO crit > haste(to breakpoint with little haste gems) > spirit > mastery.

 

Even though spirit is useless past 5100, so is mastery, and spirit at least lets you overextend your mana if you screw up a lot or just want to waste mana to push numbers.

Thanks for all the help in explaining this. I just cam back from a break since Terrace and I was still weighing my stats for that. This should definitely help my healing :D

What about spirit without legendary meta gem?

 

It shouldn't matter too much since the mana tea chug change. As I've said in the :how to ask for help with MW monks" thread just go for the low spirit cap and see how it feels.  If you think you need you need more just go up.

I just want to thank you guys for all the advice.I changed up my stat weights and how I'm healing. I'm finishing a lot of boss fights with either 80% or more mana.

I still cant find the edited weights we should be trying to use. I look at Krazymonk and Brewmonksta on robot and they seem to be both default builds, and i look at the 1 posted above which has spell power at 0 and 3145 haste cap?

Hi Alan,

 

I'd always raid in 10man and I found out that the best way to learn how to manage your mana properly, is to make a hardswitch to the less spirit possible and learn how to use your spells properly. 

 

That being said, if you find yourself with little to no mana, no matter what you do, putting a 8k spi cap is viable. If you can't manage your mana with 8k spi, I think is more a gameplay/rotation issue than stats. You shouldn't have to go to 10k, that seems a little too much imo.

 

Hope it helped.

      hey guys i wanted to know if you guys can help me with my self made monk:  tempest rush build. this is my first time posting  but i really enjoy this build just need some help with tweeking it. this is how it is now:
      to start you need the full sunwukoset and the legendary daibo: balance, also you need the sweeping wind belt kyoshiro's soul to make this work a little
      further i am running with crudest boots for increased spirit regen and nemisis bracers becuase i dont know what else to use. rings i am also stuck with i just took the rings that had the best stats (dex, chc, chd) as far as gems go i have 3 max diamonds in my chest and 2 max emeralds in my pants i have 1 max amethyst in my helm for more life and ofc 1 max emerald in weopon . legendary gems i use are taeguk (for increased damage and toughness), gem of efficacious toxin for increased damage and redused damage taken. the thirt gem im not sure what to use so i wnet for mirnea teardrop of the starweaver for a bit of healing but im thinking bane of the trapped is way more effective.
      in the cube im running with vengefull wind for more stacks of sweeping wind, mantle of channeling for increased damage and toughnessand convention of elements for that bit of extra damage.
      skills:
      the main skill is tempest rush with the rune northern breeze cuz it reduce spirit cost and increase damage big time
      im using blinding flash for more damage, the other skills are pure for spirit regen and defense: epiphany with desertshroud for more toughness mystic ally with air ally for spirit regen (doubles cuz of crudest boots), sweeping wind for regen and defense ( second set bonus of sunwuko), mantra of healing with boon of insiration als o for spirit regen.
      the passives was kinda hard for me to choose so i went with: harmony cuz a monk cant survive without it exalted soul for more spirit regen, momentum for more damage becuase your always moving and determination also for more damage.
      this is how it kinda looks i left the rings open cuz i dont know wich one to use: http://www.d3planner.com/117539347

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, Rogue, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Spike Flail on Mal'ganis is a long tenured end-game raiding community, looking for a few more great players to add our to core for Legion progression.

      As a guild we've been around since TBC on with the same GM, Raid Leader, and core group. Our exploits include competitive Sunwell progression in TBC, top 50 ranked US progression in WoLK 25m, top 25 of US 10m progress progression in Cata, and top 125 US progression in WoD after taking a break in MoP.
      We've done the 4 night/4 hour thing in the past, but as our group of players has grown and aged, we've decided to keep the same hardcore progression mentality on a more time friendly schedule for. As such we raid 3 nights a week with raiding times as follows:
      Sunday from 7-11 PM EST
      Wednesday from 8 PM EST- 11 PM EST
      Thursday from 8 PM EST - 11 PM EST
      (We generally take off Thursday and/or Sunday on farm the content when the instance has been cleared)
      Our current progression is 7/7 Mythic Emerald Nightmare, 1/3 Mythic Trials of Valor at US#177, and are looking for great players to add to our raiding core.
      http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/mal-ganis/Spike+Flail
      About Spike Flail:
      The core of our guild have been playing MMOs together for over 10 years now. We have the same leadership and raiding core as we did all the way back in TBC/WoLK/Cata, and our same GM/Raid Leader has been leading this group of individuals since TBC.
      We take raiding extremely seriously, but we also know this is a game and meant to be enjoyed. Our leadership has been raid leading in MMOs for over 10 years now, and know that positive reinforcement and a constructive environment is more effective than an authoritarian style that relies on yelling and screaming. While it sounds cliche and overused, we're honestly proud to say that we're not the type of guild that lacks any patience and has to run raids in a completely the authoritarian manner and forget why we're playing. Our main goal is to maintain a professional environment in which we can play this game and progress as a cohesive team against the hardest challenges gaming has to offer.
      What we're looking for:
      As 3 day, 10hour per week guild, we need to make every hour we play count. As such we're looking for players who's attitudes and personality fit in with our current group of players. We're looking for people with the same mindset - who understand and value approaching a new challenge by preparing and utilizing all resources they have at their disposal in order to not waste their own time as well as their colleagues'.
      We do not recruit for the bench, as such all of our Trials are given equal opportunity as our core raiders, and we can promise that you will see progression as a trial.
      Some things we look for in our prospective applicants:
      Past Progression experience. We're looking for apps who have been a part of top progression pushes in past content, or are at least Mythic experienced in the current content. Ideally we're looking for people who have knowledge of what it takes to succeed in a progression guild over a prolonged period of time.
      Ability to make 90% of our raids.
      Dedicated raiding mindset. This includes using consumables on every fight, researching your classes' theorycrafting to min-max to the fullest, being on time and ready for every night, etc.
      MOST IMPORTANTLY: We're looking for intelligent human beings, and you should be able to convey your intelligence in how you present yourself. This includes knowing game mechanics, having quick reaction time, and being able to learn from your mistakes. You should be able to explain your classes weakness and strengths, know the theorycraft to min/max your class, and what abilities to use when. You must be able to learn quickly from your mistakes and adapt to new situations, as well as have a strong sense of situational awareness and the ability to multi-task effectively. You also must be able to express yourself in a way that shows you're an intelligent human being.
      You can find a much longer post regarding all our expectations and requirements for our applicants at here. I STRONGLY encourage any potential applicant to read over that thread thoroughly before making a decision regarding their application.
      Prospective Trials must be completely knowledgeable of their class's theorycraft and mechanics, dedicated and dependable raiders, and overall knowledgeable and skilled players. Our specific class needs are as follows:
      High Priority:
      Warlock
      Shadow Priest 
      Death Knight (DPS)
      Mage
      Guardian Druid
      Protection Warrior
      Protection Paladin
      Brewmaster Monk
      Blood Death Knight
      Mid Priority:
      Druid (Balance)
      Hunter
      A Note: We are not recruiting this many players. We simply have a lot of options available to what classes we can take. Some members have alts/offspecs they can choose to if we find a certain class. We also just have a general need for good players, so we're open to most classes at the moment. That's why we have so many on our list.
      How to contact us:
      If you're interested in applying, you can visit our forums at www.spikeflail.com and put an application in on the appropriate forum. Please be sure to read all the stickies before applying; if you can't be bothered to read the stickies and follow application directions you probably will not be considered for a Trial. You also can chat with myself (Pallinn - Palin#1620 Btag) or any other Spike Flail officer (Marko#1989 and/or Nikolai#1962)
      Please be sure to read over all the information we've presented on our forum before making a decision to apply. If you think you meet our requirements and agree with our philosophy towards raiding, feel free to pursue it. However please don't belittle yourself by simply glancing over our information and tossing an application with no effort behind it. The application process is partly an attempt to weed our those who can't read stickies or form a proper sentence, so please remember that an application is your first impression, so try to make it as well crafted as possible.
      Thanks for reading and hope to hear from you soon!
