So, i have looked at a few sites and some have Multistrike over crit atm. i'll be honest i'm not a hardcore gamer that has time anymore like i used to 10 years ago to go through ever sim and website to see whats best for my veteran Warrior class. all through WOD Crit has been BIS but is that still so?

Hey,

 

Crit is and will always be top priority as Fury.  (At least until we are capped).

 

More Crit=More Enrage=More Damage. There is only 1 plate item per socket in Highmaul, so you cant choose anyway. Just Enchant/Socket Crit in everything.

From what I've heard, Crit Rating begins losing priority once you're raid buffed crit chance is 30% or higher. You need about 2,000 crit rating (unbuffed) to achieve this though, which from the gear I've looked at, this isn't very likely even with Mythic BRF gear.

 

I ran some sims last week using the sample Fury (1h) profiles in simcraft, and it seemed to support this. These profiles take BRF gear for normal, heroic, mythic, and "BiS" (665, 680, 695, 701) and I believe they also include the tier17 set bonuses. Here are the results that I got:

 

Gear / iLvl / Str / Crit / Haste / Mastery / Mult / Vers / Crit % (buffed)

17P (1h) / 630 / 1 / 0.46 / 0.43  / 0.41 / 0.42 / 0.32 / 22.88%

17N (1h) / 665 / 1 / 0.57 / 0.54  / 0.54 / 0.53 / 0.42 / 23.34%

17H (1h) / 680 / 1 / 0.61 / 0.56 / 0.57 / 0.57 / 0.46  /24.75%

17M (1h) / 695 / 1 / 0.65 / 0.65 / 0.65 / 0.63 / 0.51 / 26.65%

17B (1h) / 701 "BiS" / 1 / 0.60 / 0.65 / 0.67 / 0.63 / 0.51 / 34.50%

 

 

As you can see the weighted value of each stat (other than Versatility) is pretty close, with Crit being the highest value stat for item levels below Mythic BRF gear. You should be aware though that these stat weights move around a bit depending on what your personal stat distribution looks like.

 

It's also worth noting that the "BiS" profile isn't really possible for this tier. It has Mythic Warfoged BRF gear with sockets in every slot. Which I'm going to go ahead and say isn't really going to happen for anyone prior to the next raid tier...

 

So, bottom line: Yes, Crit is the best stat, especially for this raid tier. In later tiers, when we can more easily get Crit Chance above 30%, the other main DPS stats will out weigh Crit.

 

Edit: Ek... that table formatting didn't go through at all, tried to clear it up.

30% buffed is fully achievable in HM HC gear, I'm 665 and have 27.59% buffed, crit will always be top no matter the ilvl, it's just logic, after that, Mastery and Multistrike are so close that it's not really comparable besides maybe about 0.06% difference, but you'll naturally get more haste anyway so I wouldn't worry too much, like above poster said, gem and enchant crit and you're golden, also I can't recommend lvl 3 upgrades blacksmithing gear with crit on high enough, it's better than HM HC gear and you can stat choose, HM helm doesn't have crit, neither does the chest so those should be 2 pieces you go for.

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.
