PvP Destro stats priority and pet talent

3 posts in this topic

I wonder what is the stat priority for destruction in pvp with full 550 ilvl gear, I know there was a certain ilvl point around 522 when intelect began being worthless than mastery, but I don't know if that applies to PvP, since you can't cast so many Chaos Bolts due to silences and other cc.

 

I would also like to know if Grimoire of Sacrifice results in better dps with 550 pvp gear than the other grimoire choices.

Foreward: I only PvP as aff.

That said, I'd imagine the stat threshold is more loose. Probably more sway in terms of int v mastery. Ideally, probably, get lots of both. In haste v crit, I can see arguments both ways, but think the flexibility of added haste might pull it ahead.

As for GoSac, I'd imagine its a theoretical dps increase, bit since you're unlikely to get 95% damage uptime on a target, your pet wailing on them will likely prove more effective.

Both of those statements are just common-sensical musings though. I have no experience with it.

Astynax got some good points already covered, so just opinions from a hobby bloodcoin-farmer farmer(yes i don´t like the timeless isle):
I would not take GoSac. Even when you´re cc´ed, your pet should be able to further deal damage and also use its own skills like cc and kicks.

 

Stat priority-wise I would stick to the Mastery stacking, because it not just heightens your Chaos Bolt damage but all of your fire damage, which is pretty everything you will ever cast as Destruction(there are of course mixes like shadowfire CB and shadow damage.from SB). Since you don´t need that much hit, you will have enough extra int through your orange gems. After that, in terms of dps, I would go for haste: shorter windows for kicks and of course more casts, which allows more pressure. Crit is in its nature and my humble opinion too unpredictable and due to the short durations of most PvP fights(those little skirmishes within BGs) doesn´t has a chance to even out its unpredictability.

      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?...
