Skull of war question

I recently made a 680 Skull of War and equipped it to replace a 600ilvl trinket, then I started to think is it good in the long run and I looked on the BiS lists for all specs and it wasn't on anyone of them so I figuerd I ask here.


Sorry for my bad grammars and spelling errors and thanks in advance!

No, the Skull of War is not very good in the long run. Crit does next to nothing for Combat. I also made one of these, but only to 655 before I realized. I will leave it be until I decide to mess around more with Sub. A inv_misc_trinket6oog_stonefist1.jpgGrandiose Plans from follower mission would probably serve you better. I got a warforged socketed version and dropped a haste gem in.

Due to the high amount of Agility on the 680 version, you're better off using it than lots of other trinkets


For Combat, it's probably better than anything you get in Highmaul other than Mythic Scales, and for Sub it's still good unless you have Beating Heart of the Mountain from any difficulty, the Coin, or something from heroic BRF or better


Check how it measures up on Shadowcraft though

I have a query about this trinket actually running along side the detonation trinket as Assassination. From stat weights critical strike is high for the spec but I worry that having almost 60% crit with both trinkets proc at the same time devalues it, as they almost always proc around the same time.


I just wondered if there was a way to check at what point critical strike has diminishing returns?

Check them both in Shadowcraft. but I think you're probably right and you're better off going with the Beating Heart of the Mountain cause it lines up with Vendetta

      So I've got these two specific items. The ACI is one of the most used trinkets on shadow priest, but compared to the Infernal, it has a low ilvl. The effect of Infernal stacks every second, and since critical strike is now the bis stat for shadow priest,  which one of the trinkets would you pick? 🙂
      Thanks in advance! 🙂

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      and this is my -
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.

      I'm not entirely sure what I am doing wrong that is getting me this result, but I am getting about a 30k dps difference on training dummy when I use a defile, clawing shadows, shadow infusion build than when I use the recommended talents. I left the rest of my talents unchanged and I have yet to see where the dps difference is coming from (arbiter or clawing shadows), but I'm very confused as to how this could happen. Links to armory and mrrobot below.
      Defile damage breakdown, Arbiter damage breakdown
      I felt like I had a harder time keeping my disease up and using coldheart on cooldown (or rather whenever at max stacks) with the arbiter build. Am I missing some key thing or do I just need to git gud? Thanks in advance for any help.

      I'm sure this is a popular topic so I apologize if this is the 1 millionth time you've seen this.
      I haven't played a level capped character since probably Wrath of the Lich King.  Friends are sucking me back in and I'm thinking about picking up Warrior.  I used to love tanking as a warrior but unfortunately (or fortunately) it looks like all the tank slots are filled.  Basically my question is, is rolling Warrior a wise choice?  Are they fun to play?  Pretty sure id pick Fury as my DPS spec but I don't know how it or arms plays now. I want to be competitive on the meters against my guildmates but I don't think we're going to be super hardcore.
      I suppose this is "living the dream" but i want to be near the top of the DPS charts while having fun doing it. Is the warrior for me? Other classes I was looking at were Shadow Priest, Hunter, or Death Knight.
      I guess I should also mention that I haven't played in a LONG time so ill probably be doing things like world pvp, BGs, 5-mans, ect.  I'm not an Arena type of person.
