Question on Tier synergy bonuses

Hello,

I have a question that I can't seem to find the answer to, and I am hoping you guys can help me. I just discovered this site and i must say it have been very informative to me so far.

Due to my work schedule I can very rarely make my guild raids so most every week its off to the LFR.

I have the 4 piece T13 LFR set. My question is: is the bonus provided adequate enough to not buy the i397 valor point gear? what about a mix of the valor point gear and the 2 piece bonus? should I not even worry about the bonus and just try to get the BiS items that I can?

I know it may seem silly to some since it is the LFR and not all that difficult, but on those rare occasions when I do get to go with my guild I just want to make sure I have the best gear overall that I can.

Thanks in advance for any advice and help you can give me!

I am going to guess, based on the tags of the thread, that you are a Holy Paladin. I'll base my answer off that. If I'm wrong, feel free to specify your class.

The set bonuses from the tier set, especially the 4-part tier set bonus (+20% healing to Holy Radiance) are very good. Also, 3 of the tier items (shoulder, chest and hands) are ideally itemised for a Holy Paladin (spirit and haste), whereas the Valor gear is not (it has Crit or Mastery).

So, I think you will get the best set-up by using the following items:

Head: Glowing Wings of Hope (Valor points). Critical Strike Rating is better than Mastery Rating (which is what the tier head has).

Shoulder: Tier LFR

Chest: Tier LFR

Hands: Tier LFR

Legs: Tier LFR (no Valor equivalent).

If you want more specific advice or tips or anything, feel free to ask (and provide an armory link, too!)

P.S.: There's nothing wrong with wanting to perform well, no matter what the level you are raiding at is.

If you are unsure about gear but you don't have much time to research everything, trawl through class specific websites or elitist jerks it can be worth using a website that does it for you. Mr robot is pretty good (www.askmrrobot.com). It isn't perfect and there are better ways to deal with gear; but as a general guide it is pretty good. If you use 'relative rankings' rather than BiS it will tell you if something is an upgrade based on your currently equiped gear which is also pretty useful. Takes thinks like 2/4 piece bonuses into account. Make sure you log off in your pve gear though as it updates directly from armoury.

I would just like to add that the 4-set bonus got nerfed to +5% healing to Holy Radiance. This is a lot less good than it used to be, but I still think it's worth getting since holy radiance is used a lot in Dragon soul, especially in a 25-man raid.

Oh, so it has. That's weird, http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/item/78692 still mentions it as 20%. You'd think it would be reliable.

In my guild the paladin healers decided to give the tier tokens to all the other classes first, since the upgrade for them is quite small and other classes(priests, warlocks and retribution paladins) getting their 4-set bonus first would benefit the raid more. But I still think the 4-set LFR is better than the valor point items. The items given by Vlad are probably your best guess.

      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

      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.

      Hi I've been a semi-active Wow player for 11 years now and been a part of a Raiding Guild for several expansions. Usually I just get by on the guides here on icy-veins or other similar sites for talent and gear recommendations but for Legion it seems in order to tell if something is really a good upgrade or not I'm going to have to start Simming my character myself. Can anyone here recommend a good guide on how to get started with it?
      Thanks for any Replies

      Hello, first time poster. I have read many of the threads here regarding Ret dps and most of them seem to be specific to the poster's gear or situation so I'm hoping to get some help with my gear and rotation specifically. I started using Hekili 2 weeks ago and have seen a massive improvement in my DPS. I have gone from almost all gray and green parses to mostly blue with a couple green parses, but I would like to get to purple (80%+). I don't really care about multi target DPS sims as I will always do better on those fights due to Divine Storm spams. Also looking for a little clarification on stat weights. There's definitely a couple items that could be replaced - 4 months of killing Varimathras every week and he refuses to drop Seeping Scourgewing but I got lucky a couple weeks ago and got Aman'Thul's (the dream trinket). Also need the BiS leggo cloak but I keep getting all the other leggos so I'm hoping eventually I will get it.
      Currently sitting at 26% Crit - 26% - Haste - 61% Mastery - 18% Versatility
      Stat weights: https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/jSqu4orZZWC4cMnLteGYx9
      Single Target Sim: https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/wEaDtJGJAKnanpn9Eogy6L
      Currently mastery and versatility are my highest weight. So if I change my enchants or gems for more mastery/vers instead of haste, then haste becomes my highest weight, so what is the point of looking at this? What percentages would be ideal?
      Today's Normal ABT log: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/gjbRr3PcMdX1Va26/
      Today's Heroic ABT log: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/fwC3ATFPQyZdKz7G/
      I am really taking hits on movement fights. What can I do to improve my DPS on heavy mechanic and movement fights like Coven, Imonar, and Garothi? Typically I get hit with a lot decimates and sleep so I have to constantly run in and out which is why I use Crusade for 2 charges. Sometimes I get lucky and don't have to deal with it very much.
      I mostly play ranged casters but am having difficulty performing well for my ilvl on those toons too. My 948 enhancement shaman typically pulls 1.5M-1.7M ST which is generally what my pally pulls. So I think I'm just having a hard time with certain classes.
      Thank you.
      (I did not include link to armory because armory stats are not updated to what they actually are on mine or any other character that I look up.)
