Help with a trinket choice, 653 Aff Lock

11 posts in this topic

As title suggests, I just got a new trinket and really am uninformed with regards to trinkets.

 

I just got the one that drops off of Imperator, so naturally haste is great for Aff, so I want that... But my second slot, I have two options.

 

The first one, is the trinket I have equipped on My Battle.net. The second is Sandman's Pouch.

 

My logic is that while the Sandman has more flat int and a proc, the other trinket has 159 mastery which is also the main stat of Aff.

 

Please assist.

Not sure if its a bug or just my bad luck, but I couldn't get the Pouch to proc hardly at all today when  I messing around with Affliction.  I'm wondering if it doesn't proc off of periodic damage and only direct.  I had no issues with Demo or Destro and the trinket.

Like Taliesin52 said, Sandman's is bugged right now so that it isn't working right for Aff. Sometime in the later half of last week it stopped procing off of DoTs for Aff locks. I haven't seen a log or testimonial since Thursday showing it working. 

 

Until it is fixed I wouldn't use Sandman's over just about anything for Aff.

Thanks for the information regarding this glitch. 

 

I'll stick with the other trinket for now then.

 

For theorycrafting sake though, do you think Sandman's would be worth it if the proc was working properly?

Yes, the int is very good and the proc isn't bad. The proc isn't very good either but it isn't bad.

Re: Sandman's Pouch - I switched main spec to affliction last night, and I wasn't noticing any problems with the trinket not proccing. It seemed to actually be lining up pretty consistently with my dark soul and copeland's clarity cooldown. I heard that they may have stealth hotfixed it but I wasn't able to confirm. I personally am struggling whether or not to keep copelands + runestone or go with shards of nothing + runestone.

Go Copelands.  Being in control of a proc is always better.  Macro it with Dark Soul.

Sorry for hijacking the thread, but I have a question about trinkets as well.

 

At the moment I have shards of nothing and sandman's. I swapped sandman's out for a 630 on use haste trinket. Now both of these trinkets are on a 2 minute cooldown. I am also using AD so I have to charges of DS. If I only use DS with the trinket, I will almost always have another charge waiting. So what I did was use the first DS as the fight started and then when it expired I immediately used it again for the second trinket as I noticed that I can't use both trinkets at the same time.

I'd say your bonus AD for execute if that's what you're working with.  Not the 20-40 second range when your potion and other buffs fall off.

I agree. What do I do with my 2 haste use trinkets though? It means that I only use the other trinket once when I use the second charge of DS. Should I rather replace the 630 trinket with the alchemist trinket?
