Shoulders question?

7 posts in this topic

Hey there forums.

So I use a site called MAX DPS to know what gear is BiS. Currently I am at LFR difficulty. And this site uses (almost) the same stat priority as icy veins. 

http://www.maxdps.com/rogue/assassination.php

Now, It says that Ricochetting Shoulderguards is better than tier (spaulders of the barbed assassin). How can this be? Are'nt tier gear better than the other gear that is dropped in the raid?

 

Just in case, Here are some links:

Tier:

Thanks for help

Normally you should stick with your 4-piece bonus and get a piece with your highest secondary stats. For example you should be keeping your 4 piece bonus and looking for an item with mastery and haste as it's main secondary stats. (Following IV's stat guide, not too knowledgeable on Assassination)

Also i wouldn't rely entirely on one website for anything. Googling is free, use it more!

 

Hope this helped somewhat :D

As mentioned, the site doesn't weigh your set bonuses into the equation.  It just looks purely at the stats.

 

Why not use AskMrRobot's BiS finder?  It's a little smarter, and includes your set bonuses, and trinket procs.

 

Check out this link: http://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/gear/d2ea08df-3dcd-46e2-977b-c01b2d748199

 

Once that loads up, hit Best In Slot.

 

I got there by loading your character, hitting Options, and changing the following:

 

Gear Level to Pre-Raid

LFR gear to Tier 16

Flex gear to none

Heroic gear to none

PvP gear to none

World Boss Items to none.

Ask Mr Robot and Shadowcraft do place value on the set bonuses, making them more useful sites for gear comparison.

 

You will also see off pieces with higher stats because they can drop as warforged, and tier cannot. There are various BiS lists out there that will tell you your optimal off piece if you have a full BiS set, but to figure out whether you want tier or an off piece in your specific situation you're going to have to experiment with gear arrangements on one of the above websites.

I wouldn't advise you to use AMR's BiS function, that has a few issues. You can manually use AMR to find out which gear set gives you the largest amount of (useful) stats though.

That being said, the BiS list that I got to worked just fine and is accurate for Assas rogues, limiting to only LFR content.
