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.

      It's a few months later (what with delays and distractions and getting old and all that), but I just wanted to start by saying THANK YOU to those who helped me with amazing advice on levelling my fire mage alt. It made all the difference - you guys rock.
      I finally dinged 110 the other day and went into a few instances and raid finders with her. As a caster noob - I main a feral - there are a few things I've noticed and am unsure about.
      The guide here on Icy Veins recommends Dragon's Breath for AoE of 3+ grouped mobs. I may have overlooked something, but I can't for the life of me find anything on the *range* of Dragon's breath. The animation makes me think I need to stand right in front of the mobs to hit them, but that can't be right, I'm supposed to be ranged and standing a good bit away - aren't I?  During levelling, I've gotten used to casting Living Bomb regardless of how many mobs I'm facing. The guide has it exclusively as an AoE ability. Is that true, or is it worth casting on a single target (boss)? Does meteor "work" on huge bosses who are standing behind a ledge/cliff, in the manner of Engine of Souls (Desolate Host) or Garothi Worldbreaker? I try placing it as close to the edge of the "cliff" as possible, does that mean it'll hit the boss?

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated. In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo
