Fury mastery - does it scale better with time?

3 posts in this topic

i have been thinking about fury warriors and our mastery for a while now, and it seems to me that, with better gear, mastery gets closer and closer to strait up beating str 1:1.
 

I havn't run any real math on this yet, but it seems logical that with str only adding a steady amount of dps and mastery giving us a % increase to our dps, mastery should sooner or later get better then str when we have enough basic dps to support it, and have Thok's Tail Tip

i would like to hear other's thoughts on this.

Yes mastery does improve as you get more gear specifically as you get more crit. As far as reforging and gemming goes, you cant reforge to strength so after hit, expertise (to cap) and crit you take mastery. With gems you get twice as much mastery then strength so it would be a better choice but crit is by far our best stat especially with thoks so no reason to worry about mastery.

Tldr crit is best only time you worry about mastery is reforging after crit, exp, hit.

As aequitas said, mostly. It doesn't matter really whether Str>Mastery or Mastery>Str, because you should almost never have to choose between those two. Since crit is and will stay our best secondary stat for the rest of this expansion (at least) you shouldn't have to worry about the relative weight of mastery.

 

If you have some more specific questions on this topic feel free to ask :)

      So,
      Which trinket should I be using (obviously arms warriors are not concerned with iLvl because Mastery is desired over strength.
      I have the 820 iLvl trinket from a timewarped dungeon and that with heroism, Battle Cry, Potion, trinket use, could provide an extreme amount of dps burst which is also on a 1.5m CD. It seems like an obvious choice but I wanted to hear any thoughts or opinions that people have since I'll be losing 500+ static mastery. Also, the use effect gives around 20-24% increased damage during colossus smash. 
      Thoughts?...

      How does Battle Cry actually work? Does the 100% crit chance guarantee a crit? I ask because I've been trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong to boost my DPS and noticed today, multiple times, while working on the Raid dummy I was not enraging when I expected to due to Battle Cry being up. 
       
      I created a short clip that shows this happening:  
       
       
      Is this normal or a bug?

      Hello everyone,
      First topic on Icy! (English is not my native language so sorry about the mistakes :D)
      I am very curious about the massive stat revamp I can observe from 7.1 deployment. I gave a look at several top DPS fury and I saw they prefer now mastery over haste. Can someone explain to me what justify the changes?
      Is that only due to the +8% dmg (on BT, RB, Rampage) we got with the patch?
      In case if you're interested to "optimize" me (I read this morning a lot of your advices), please find armory and logs (6/7Hm last wednesday - I have looted 5 pieces of gear during the raid)!

      Hello guys,
      I play Fury Warrior and I'm having a dilemma in trinket choice. So far I have been using heroic version of Ursoc's Rending Paw and ilvl 845 Nightmare Egg Shell. Today I got HC Warforged (ilvl 875) Ravaged Seed Pod from Nythendra. According to the icy-veins guide and simcraft, the ravaged seed pod is worse than nightmare egg shell, but there is a huge difference between ilvl. I think I do higher dps with egg shell, but should I sacrifice it for ilvl boost from 857 to 859? I would appreciate any advice.
      EDIT: I know the best trinkets are Chaos Talisman and Faulty Countermeasure, but I haven't been lucky on drop yet.
      Here is also link to my armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/silvermoon/Ingthar/simple
      Thanks in advance for your replies :-)
