Skull of war question

Recommended Posts


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

      I'm new to using icy-veins, and I cannot seem to get used to navigating the WoW class guides. Why is stat info the 13th section of the guides, but max level content 6th through 12th? Where do I find comparisons between specs?

      I am new to mmos and I was playing an Arcane Mage but my fiance said frost mages are better so I am trying to learn how to play it and I have watched videos and gone over the icy viens information but it is still very confusing for me. I know this sounds bad but can anyone like dumb it down or like comment simpler instructions right now i am going off this attachment i made based of some advice and off of icy viens and i am only doing 4152 dps total so I am not sure if this is low or not but I am already level 120 right now

      So uhm, first post here and i take the opportunity to take you guys through my fabulous journey into "breaking" the tavern brawl this morning.
      So i get on that six-shooter tavern brawl with a mage decklist ( just cause i need them gold from quest ya know :D ) and on my second or third game,
      I play Research Project my opponent had then 10 cards in hand and draws for the turn, but no deck refill.... He then plays Barnes, no minion comes up from the battlecry. so it aint a visual bug. start my turn, play another Research Project, my opponent fatigues for 1+2, i can then OTK him with my 0 costs spells due to my 4 copies of Sorcerer's Apprentice.
      Fun fact, the tavern brawl clearly says; Make a six-card deck and duel! Don't worry - when you're out of cards you get a free reload!.
      Can anyone recall to this happening to them or no one had the cojones to mill?

      I am currently looking for people to pop into my streams and see if I can improve my dps rotation and all around wow play. Any feedback is appreciated

      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! 🙂
