A stupid question thanks for the help in advance

12 posts in this topic

I have a stupid question so please try not to facepalm too hard when I ask it:

 

Is it dumb to want to stack your top 3 stats for your class... or better yet focus on stacking the same things on all your gear.  For destro rnow I'm going for Intel crit mastery.  I would rather have an I level 360 intel crit stam than a higher level intel crit haste.  I'm playing destro right now building an aff set of mastery haste.  

 

SO the stupidity is this:

 

I don't want to sacrifice my crit mastery 360 for anything of higher I level but not those stats.  I also don't want to do it for secondary spec aff that is mastery haste.

 

So the rub is why would having some crit, some mastery, a sprinkle of multistrike/haste in there be worth it for the more intellect.  Am I thinking to vanilla wow and only wanting to spec peerless (destro) as I would of the eagle back in the day?  

 

I've been playing better and putting out numbers better since I did this but I'm thinking it's just my confidence that is the major stat booster/

The difference between your secondary stats is very small.  I hope you'd rather have an item level 630 item over a 360 item.

 

Item Level > secondary stats choice as long as the ilvl gap is 10 or higher.

I'm not trying to call anyone out.  I'm trying to fix my stupid so apologies if it came off wrong.

I think the confusion here comes from a lack of understanding how stat weights work.  For example a single point of INT is worth (ballpark) two points of Mastery for Affliction.  There was a good post by Ghadda or Zagam I saw a while back that explained it real well, I'll see if I can find it.

I'll just follow the rule and stop trying to think (not very good at it anyway):
 

10 i level or more secondary stats care no more.

So to be clear:

is better than

If I'm stacking crit mast.

 

If that first item was 660 ilvl the 2nd would still be better, look at the INT difference first [X2] Technically The Stamina matters but not by a lot [X1]

 

The top item is therefore better by 9INT & 14 Stamina if anyone thinks that & 2 crap stats make it better than a lower ilvl with ideal stats i worry about them [unless your stat priority is crit = mastery = haste = multistrike > vers

The differences in secondary stats are so small that the int is better.

 

Either way, you won't see a difference of much.
