Windsong > Dancing Steel

2 posts in this topic

hey,

 

i just saw in the fury guide that windsong is supposed to be better than dancing stell if your ilvl is >570 and wearing a ttt... that would be basically every hc raiding warrior.

(Guide updated 20 May 2014)

 

So i did a few simc runs and saw that this seems to be true, even if it is only for an averrage of 300dps for my char. (ilvl579)

 

dancing steel: 452300

windsong: 452600

(average result of 3x250.000 iterations per enchant)

 

Did anyone already make the change? 

Any suggestions? Ragebarr will you do it? :D

At least the enchant costs of ws are ridiculous compared to ds ^^

From what I've read/seen, it depends on a bit more factors. For example, I'm pretty sure your TTT has to be at least Heroic, and that once you reach crit cap on your BT (53% raid buffed, with crit depression) Dancing Steel becomes better again. 

 

The only way to know for sure is to sim yourself, and remember that in either case, the DPS difference is minimal, at best. I didn't bother changing my enchants over a <1% DPS difference.

      Hello everyone,
      I have a question regarding the rerolling (replacing, enchant) the properties of an item.
      I'm using the Deadset Guides as a reference for my builds and it includes a recommendation for item stats.
      But I'm unsure what has priority: rerolling the most important property so it is at its highest, or getting the most of the top characteristics.
      I will use an example.
      I am using the Firebird Archon build and have two sets of Firebird Talons.
      Firebird Talons:
      Deadset recommendation:
      (1) Intelligence (825 - 1000)
      (2) Critical Hit Chance (8 - 10 %)
      (3) Critical Hit Damage (26 - 50%)
      (4) Cooldown Reduction (5-8%)
      (5) Vitality (825 - 1000)
      Two versions of a Firebird Talon (Ancient):
      (1) Intelligence:  Set 1: 901 vs Set 2: 833
      (2) Critical Hit Chance: Set 1: 8,5% vs Set 2: 10%
      (3) Critical Hit Damage: Set 1: None vs Set 2: None
      (4) Cooldown Reduction: Set 1: None vs Set 2: None
      (5) Vitality: Set 1: None vs Set 2: 969

      Armor: Set 1: 585 vs Set 2: 542
      Set 1:
      Primary: Resistance to All Elements 122
      Secondary 1: 34% extra gold from monsters
      Secondary 2: +3342 Thorns Damage

      Set 2:
      Primary: Regenerates 9105 life per second
      Secondary 1: +188 Fire Resistance
      Secondary 2: Monster kills grant +237 experience
       
      Question 1:
      What property would you replace in both sets?
      Set 1:
      (1) Intelligence:  Set 1: 901 
      (2) Critical Hit Chance: Set 1: 8,5% 
      (3) Critical Hit Damage: Set 1: None 
      (4) Cooldown Reduction: Set 1: None 
      (5) Vitality: Set 1: None 

      Armor: Set 1: 585 
      Primary: Resistance to All Elements 122
      Secondary 1: 34% extra gold from monsters
      Secondary 2: +3342 Thorns Damage

      Set 2:
      (1) Intelligence:  Set 2: 833
      (2) Critical Hit Chance:  Set 2: 10%
      (3) Critical Hit Damage:  Set 2: None
      (4) Cooldown Reduction: Set 2: None
      (5) Vitality: Set 1:  Set 2: 969

      Armor: Set 2: 542
      Primary: Regenerates 9105 life per second
      Secondary 1: +188 Fire Resistance
      Secondary 2: Monster kills grant +237 experience
       
      Question 2:
      After you have replaced one property in both sets, which of either would you choose?
       
       
      My interpretation and answer to these questions:
      Question 1:
      What property would you replace in both sets?
      Set 1:
      (1) Intelligence:  Set 1: 901 
      (2) Critical Hit Chance: Set 1: 8,5%  --> Option 1: Either get this to the maximum of 10%
      (3) Critical Hit Damage: Set 1: None  --> Option 2: Or get this one and get rid of Resistance to all elements
      (4) Cooldown Reduction: Set 1: None 
      (5) Vitality: Set 1: None 

      Armor: Set 1: 585 
      Primary: Resistance to All Elements 122 (--> Option 2: Trade this in for Critical Hit Damage)
      Secondary 1: 34% extra gold from monsters
      Secondary 2: +3342 Thorns Damage

      Set 2:
      (1) Intelligence:  Set 2: 833 --> Option 1: Either get this up to the maximum of 1000
      (2) Critical Hit Chance:  Set 2: 10%
      (3) Critical Hit Damage:  Set 2: None --> Option 2: Get this one while getting rid of regenerates 9105 life per second
      (4) Cooldown Reduction: Set 2: None
      (5) Vitality: Set 1:  Set 2: 969

      Armor: Set 2: 542
      Primary: Regenerates 9105 life per second (--> Option 2: Trade this in for critical hit damage)
      Secondary 1: +188 Fire Resistance
      Secondary 2: Monster kills grant +237 experience
       
      Question 2:
      After you have replaced one property in both sets, which of either would you choose?
      My guess would be:
      Set 1:
      (1) Intelligence:  Set 1: 901 
      (2) Critical Hit Chance: Set 1: 8,5%  
      (3) Critical Hit Damage MAXIMUM REROLLED
      (4) Cooldown Reduction: Set 1: None 
      (5) Vitality: Set 1: None 

      Armor: Set 1: 585 
      (Primary:  Traded in resistance to all elements)
      Secondary 1: 34% extra gold from monsters
      Secondary 2: +3342 Thorns Damage
       
      I would really love to hear your views on this. Would you for instance even go for the cooldown reduction instead depending on your other items?
       
      Would you also save a really good item, that for instance has a different kind of damage (in this case not fire damage), keeping it for a different future build. Or do you reroll everything to suit the build you are using now?
       
      Thanks everyone for their input, I'm very curious to hear!
      Kind regards,
       
      Vivace

      Hi, I've been reading the Holy Paladin guide from Icy Veins, but I can't understand why Mark of Shadowmoon is better than Mark of the Thunderlord if Crit is the 2nd most important stat (after Intellect obviously). I'd appreciate any help!

      Hey guy,
      I was recently thinking about my weapon enchant. I dont know if iam the only one but at my current level of gear Simcraft is giving me the following stat priority: Mastery (2.79) > MS(2.72) > Crit (2.58)
       
      Because of this I was asking myself if Mark of the bleeding hollow could be a better enchant then mark of the thunderlord which i currently have enchanted. Or maybe enchanting one weapon with the crit enchant and the other one with the mastery enchant. What are your thoughts about it? Which enchant do you got?

      AskMrRobot advises you to use Mark of the Shattered Hand (mastery) on your weapon and enchant everything else with Crit. Mark of the Thunderlord, however, not only gives you crit, but gives you a chance to extend the buff duration when you crit, which sounds good if you can cast chaos bolts.

      What do you think is the best enchant for Destruction Warlocks?
