25% Haste cap - Resto

7 posts in this topic

Hey smile.png

 

I've read most of the guides here and I loved them so much,

I'm playing Resto shaman and went to 25% haste cap

the problem is when I reorged haste to 5676 (5681 to be exact) I got 24.99% spell haste even tho we had 5% spell haste

 

this is my character:

I suspect that the guide rounds the % measurement significantly. Think of it like this; to be the same precision as the rating it gives, the guide would have to quote something like "25.00%" - the rating is the more accurate thing to go by.

That's exactly it.  Most people will quote '25% haste', but what you're aiming for is actually 24.97% AKA 5676 w/ AS/Raid Buff for that second extra Riptide tick.

I thought it might not be the exact 25% that the guide wanted, but then I read on the same guide, and I quote "25.026%, to be precise", thats why I went here to ask.

 

but if you think I'm doing OK, then I guess there's nothing to worry about.

 

 

thanks for this wonderful guides and answers here too ;)

Which guide was it?

 

Theory:

Blizzard drops numbers past the hundreds place, but rounds aggressively, from 1 up.  IE: 2.2509 = 2.25.  2.2510 = 2.26.

 

Application:

Riptide's HoT = 18 seconds.

Base tick speed = 3 seconds

Base tick number = 18 / 3 = 6 ticks

Hasted tick speed = 3 - (3*24.97%) = 2.2509 rounded to 2.25.

Hasted tick number = 18 / 2.25 = 8 ticks

 

Proof:

24.98% - 5677 Haste - Shows 1 hit 8 ticks.  Hover over the 100% beside Riptide to show better.

0% - 0 Haste - Shows 1 hit 6 ticks.

Oh, you're correct there.

 

Ask Mr Robot has a list of all the breakpoints, and this one it says is 24.97%

 

I suspect the guide is wrong, I'll raise it with Damien as soon as I get time.

      Just a couple of questions about stats.
      I know that the stat priority for demo is
      Int>hit to cap>haste to cap>mastery
      But if using the ask mr robot tool what should I change the weights to? If I leave the numbers the same, but swapping the haste and mastery number and deleting crit. Then it tells me to use mostly burning primal rubies and such and I don't reach haste cap(I'm actually aiming at the 6k-ish affliction cap for off spec. But if I bump the weights up it tells me to use gems with less int more secondary stats.
      Is there a set number I should put in to make the program optimize my gear correctly?
      Also what's the haste cap(demo) I should aim for challenge modes?

      Hello all. I'm inquiring why is askmrrobot telling us to reforge spi haste crit mastey and icy veins saying haste to 1350 with 5%haste buff?
      I thought these two sites were supposed to be working together for reforging.
      If I go with askmrrobot with reforging then I will have 4000 haste +5% h buff.

      Also can anyone show what the second and third haste break points would be? And what you'd gain at each.
      I heal 10mans. I went with crit over mastery for a bit and then switched mastery over crit and really didnt see a differance. Now when doing lfr mastery really shines.
      Atm I'm frustrated with monk because I really don't seem to be able to find a stat balance I like.
