Why does it seem like i get less crits im SMF?

4 posts in this topic

So i have a 27.63% chance to crit with my SMF gear and i have 27.76% chance with my TG gear. Now my question is why does it seem like i get so many more raging blow procs on my TG than my SMF? i went to the training dummy and did 20 runs as SMF and 20 runs as TG to figure this out if anybody has insight that would help a lot.

As long as you're keeping the same rotation with both, the number of procs you get should be around the same. 

 

The sample you have is actually quite a small sample, and it's hard to draw conclusions from that. It is very possible that you got a couple more unlucky streaks as SMF and that you felt like you had less overall procs. (Moreover, at this crit level unlucky BT-non-crit streaks really aren't that rare).

 

If you have logs of some fights done as SMF and some fights done as TG, we can probably look deeper and see if there's anything behind that, but there shouldn't be any flagrant difference between the 2.

 

(Last quick question, I'm kind of intrigued by the small difference in crit between the 2 setups, what weapons are you using?)

The lack of crit on your TG weapons explain the small difference in stats between the 2 specs.

 

And whereas for equivalent ilvls TG should give you slightly better DPS, until you reach very high crit (40+%) you will definitely get some unlucky streaks of a couple BTs in a row not critting. Good Berserker Rage use will offset that somewhat, but Fury warriors are still very RNG based.

      I have been using two 510 2h weapons and just recently received a 1h 528 and a 553 1h. However the 553 is a tank weapon and amr is telling me to use it. Now unless im missing something wouldnt I be laughed out of Azeroth for using a tank weapon for smf? Should I just keep the 2 510 2h or actually listen to amr and use the two new weapons? 
       
      Thanks.

      So, I'm leveling my Fury Spec. Warrior, and I check his new abilites. Low and behold I found out not only did he now have Titan's Grip, but he had Single Minded fury. If you are anything of a perfectionist, like myself, I started to look into what would be the best for my character. Both sides, SMF and TG, seem pretty even. However I must ask, Is there a major DPS difference between the two?
      Also, What would each offer?
      This particular toon is not max level, he is level 60 at the moment. So I guess I'm leaning twoards what should I start to look to build on him when it comes down to weapons.
