Skull of war question

6 posts in this topic


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

Alright! Thanks for the answers and I just learned about shadowcraft so i'll definitely start checking there

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

      Hey all! I need some help with my dps, Im 884 ilvl and only do 350-400k dps overall on fights in Nighthold, even on dummy. 
      I just changed to BoS build so I have to practice, but it feels imossible to get more out of him. Im a bit off at stats and havent got legendary belt, ring or set bonus. Atm I have 25% Crit but only 15% haste :-/ Simcraft says 325 dps... about 360 with Glacial advance build.
      Here is a log from Krosus
      Here is my Armory

      I used to be proud of my parses, doing 85-90%+ parses at ilvl 878 or so. Since then I've geared up and feel like my stats are in the right place (though mastery could be a bit higher). Now I'm parsing at 52-65% even though I don't think I'm doing anything majorly different with my rotation, and I even have the 2pc t19...

      I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, please take a look if you have some time.

      Warcraft logs (star augus). I'm "Monkeygin":
      878 (12 days ago):
      888 (5 days ago):
      889 (yesterday):

      (I held my meta burst for bloodlust to try it out... didn't work out so well it seems.)

      Hey everyone, new here.
      I just got done with Normal Nighthold with my guild and my DPS.. well sucks. Can anyone look at my logs and see what's up? Maybe a few pointers?
      Thank you!

      I need some help figuring out my rogues weak auras.
      I currently have this:
      What I want to happen is that when there are 3 seconds remaining on for ex rupture, the icon of rupture glows and once rupture is gone the icon just stays there glowing.
      Secondly, could someone give me the ID for the envenom buff as I cannot seem to track it whatever I do. Hopefully in the same format as the others in the picture above.
      Can anyone help me with this by guiding me on how to do it or giving me the string on the new one?
      Thanks in advance.
