Demo Breakpoints

4 posts in this topic

Hey all,


Got a quick question, trying to min/max my output as Demo.


In terms of haste breakpoints, what kind of limit would you suggest on how much extra mastery to give up to reach them?


I'm currently running a low haste build and pulling pretty nice numbers, though I'm seeing a lot of suggestions lately to swap to the 14k haste build, and I can see why, since the majority of the time I'm casting ToC in Demo form rather than SF (though not exclusively, I can fit in a few here and there).

I'm running a secret value below 14k and parsing very high.  It's a personal Haste value that caters to my playstyle.  Reforging isn't going to make or break your DPS...mastering the spec will.  Haste = Mastery for single target, but for ANY AoE or cleaving, Mastery > Haste.  Your preference on how much Mastery you give up for Haste.

Cheers for the reply Zag,


Yeah I know that reforging isn't gonna matter too much, I've put hours upon hours into mastering my rotation so as I say, it's purely for min/max reasons and whether hitting those breakpoints would suddenly provide a heavier jump in damage.


I'll probably play around with them just out of curiosity, but I know it's not suddenly going to give me another 50k or anything.


Oh and Omar, sadly this lock is Alli side, so no berserking for me!

      Hey guys,
      Just wondering peoples thoughts on the 20% Haste Minimum for UH DPS.
      Who thinks it is absolutely crucial?
      I am looking at a bunch of recent drops i have that are basically same ilvl. 
      I run castigator and all of the pieces i want to swap in, will give me loads more crit, but drop my haste from 20% down to 16%.
      how detrimental do you think this will be if i make the change? my crit will sit at almost 40% up from 32%.
      Thanks in advance,

      I use AMR to quickly get an idea of different gear upgrades pretty often. With the changes to mastery they have yet to really set up a new default stat weight and I didn't really like the stat weight they had before anyway. I know the priority of Vers>Haste>Mastery>Crit. This is more about the technical weights for AMR.
      Does anyone have any thoughts on what stat weighting they use for AMR or what the new weights should be?
      Thank you.

      Is too much mastery a thing? Gearing up for legion raiding, I've basically just been trying for item level and not worrying about stat priority. Now that I'm around 845+ ilvl I need to really start worrying about it. Right now I'm sitting at 104% mastery, 26% crit, and 4% haste. In 5 mans, this is awful, I really need to up my haste for sure, but what about for raids? I still think I can afford to drop mastery for haste and going off the sticky that talks about stats, I can probably afford to trade out crit for some haste as well. What levels are you guys looking to reach? I haven't played since cata and just came back for legion, are there still haste breakpoints you try to hit nowadays? Any help would be appreciated!
