5.0.4 Warrior Guide Questions...

5 posts in this topic

Just wondering why the Mace in Heroic DS is BiS over the Axe in Heroic DS.. Crit/Mastery vs Crit/Haste seems to me Crit/Mastery is a no brainer..

Please explain to me how Pure Strength beats Pure Crit or me using Crit + Str gems and getting the bonus isnt better then pure str.. I know its a no brainer come level 90 because the crit gems have double the stats of Str gems but i thought Crit overall was a better stat then Str..

You are correct. Our BiS pages are not currently entirely accurate for the new 5.0.4 stat weights. We will adjust them soon.

I will say - if you have gold to spend for new gems - why not? Gemming all slots with crit gems will give you higher Enrage uptime via Bloodthirst and Colossus Smash procs and thus more DPS.

But personally, I think that changing all your gems (especially for epic ones, which may be expensive) 2 weeks before new expansion is not the best way to spend your gold.

I've read in various places that SMF still benefits from gemming mostly strength. I do sometimes feel like I'm the only SMF weirdo out there. In either case, since in a week all of my gear will be replaced with greens, I am not going to spend gold to re-gem!
