Do I need more haste?

4 posts in this topic

I'm debating enchanting for haste. some geared DK  told me I should have 50% haste or so. I feel like if I had some more haste I could get more attacks in.

 

I should note I just recently went for NP and need to switch out a talent for unholyblight. with that said I think my dps is lacking due to my lack of haste but feel free to let me know if thats idea is wrong.

I'm assuming you're talking about unholy since your armory is set to that.

 

So far I haven't heard of any DK stacking that much haste. I roll with Multi>Mastery>rest and my results are more than satisfactory.

This would lead me to believe it could be a rotational hickup, so I'd encourage you to post logs so some log-savvy person here can take a look.

 

I'd post my own armory for comparison, but I've logged out in tank gear.

necroblight lacking due to haste? no sir.

 

Unholy DK stat priority is either Multistrike>mastery>haste>crit OR Mastery>Multistrike>haste>crit

Necroblight aoe on paper likes more mastery but with high enough multistrike multi comes out ahead only after stacking a lot soooo yeah. I stick with multistrike myself for necro but either one works.

 

You should indeed post logs because we can help with your rotation. Where necroblight DPS can falter is basically in 2-3 main places, too many festering strikes, not enough soul reapers, bad disease uptime. For all DKS haste is an undesirable stat. Even then for a long time I can't really remember the last times DKs really valued haste. I think at the end of CATA frost 2h did for crazy killing machine procs but beyond that no.

 

So, not sure what your geared dk comrade was thinking but I cannot say his/her advice was good. Don't let gear ilvl lead you to believe they are a good player SOOOOOO many people get carried by their guilds and then suck dps wise.

 

TL;DR - stack multistrike then mastery, go get some logs, and we can perfect your rotation :D

or get redfellas weak aura script, that thing truly is amazing

You definitely don't want more haste for unholy. I'm 20 ilvl higher than you and only have 7% higher haste on the armory, and I feel like I have as much haste as I could ever need.

 

I was playing frost in Highmaul so I had a lot of haste/multistrike gear when I first switched to unholy, and I had a lot of issues with rune capping, especially when I was going through a scourge strike spam phase of my rotation. The rotation is a lot smoother, and my dps is a lot higher now that I have more mastery/multistrike gear and a lot less haste.

 

Definitely post some logs though, like our resident possessed ant eater said, there are a couple main points/concepts to necroblight that will make up the majority of your dps. Just rolling 15 stacks of NP correctly will do 20% of your total dps on gruul, and 40% of your dps on operator. and soul reapering immediately at 45% and then on CD afterwards will do another 10-15% of your total dps in just 15-20 attacks.

      Hey all. 
      I've been beating my head against the wall in regards to my DPS.

      I'm very ashamed actually. In the past I have pulled *What I thought was very good numbers* only to see that my DPS is in constant decline. I understand most people are going Frost, but I have invested so much time into Unholy, to switch now would only increase my agitation. I'm no longer a clicker, that's a plus! 
      I have my two piece currently. Currently on Heroic content and I'm needing some advice. Rotation is pretty common with what's suggested. We have a few DK's in our raid group, most of them Frost with another Unholy, who COMPLETELY blows me out of the water. Maybe it's because I'm stuck with Eye Of Command and on multi-add boss fights, it's useless. Help me fellow DK's. I would SO appreciate it.

      Is there a Haste or Critical Strike Soft/Hard cap for Retribution Paladins in this current patch? I'm trying to figure that out so I can try to hit those caps.

      From what I've seen on stat weights, crit has almost caught up with haste in 7.1.5. Would it be close to viable to go Mastery, Crit, Haste if you get One with the Pack? In possible theory that would mean more dire beast which helps focus, stomp dmg, and crit damage, I'd just imagine it would take a lot of crit to make it close to viable.

      Since shield block doesn't do donkey dick for most of the tank buster mechanics and the boss auto attacks hit like a wet noodle, is it even worth gearing haste at all? Wouldn't I be better off going for only mastery/versatility?
