Shadow Priest Haste caps

4 posts in this topic


I'm a shadow priest, I raid heroics I included an armory link above.


I currently have the 41.75% haste build, and gemming mastery and such, but is it better to have the 50% haste cap?


41.75% gives most of the extra ticks, but 50% is the GCD cap and also gives me 1+ tick of vamp touch I believe?


--Should I use 41.75% haste cap, or 50%?--

if you like swapping to fdcl for multidot now and then, and have black blood, 50% is fun and easy to hit.

Protectors is ideal for FDCL. no other fight is better. galakras wouldnt allow you to top the charts but the damage you could focus on key targets would be powerful. with the right pace, spoils could be good.

      Hey guys,
      Just wondering peoples thoughts on the 20% Haste Minimum for UH DPS.
      Who thinks it is absolutely crucial?
      I am looking at a bunch of recent drops i have that are basically same ilvl. 
      I run castigator and all of the pieces i want to swap in, will give me loads more crit, but drop my haste from 20% down to 16%.
      how detrimental do you think this will be if i make the change? my crit will sit at almost 40% up from 32%.
      Thanks in advance,

      I use AMR to quickly get an idea of different gear upgrades pretty often. With the changes to mastery they have yet to really set up a new default stat weight and I didn't really like the stat weight they had before anyway. I know the priority of Vers>Haste>Mastery>Crit. This is more about the technical weights for AMR.
      Does anyone have any thoughts on what stat weighting they use for AMR or what the new weights should be?
      Thank you.

      So on the stat priority page it says that mastery is even above strength. I've been following that for awhile, but i noticed simcraft released a legion version and i always love using it for myself. my question is that when i ran my stat scailings in simcraft, i got

      Str: 1
      AP: .95
      Haste: .91
      Mastery: .86
      I'd link armory but i noticed that blizzard hasn't seemed to updated their armory. im getting my 725 ilvl Pre-patch char

      because of the way our mastery works, is this difference in the stats caused by the fact that Pots are Proc based damage (thus increasing in damage with mastery) The neck enchant is a Proc damage, our 2 BiS trinkets are also proc damage, and paladin Greater blessing of Might, if given to us. is proc damage

      The Simcraft official dps ranking has the warrior is 2k stats all around and 13k mastery. so there's definately something to it

      I know Void Torrent is my highest priority. But I feel like using first VB to make sure my dots get refreshed is more important.
      Is it more important to max/min my insanity decay (Use VoiT instantly) or make sure my DOT uptime is maximized?
