Which trinket (of two) to use on Sub Rogue?

6 posts in this topic

Hi all,

 

Got great help the last time I asked, but now I'm a bit lost again. I have two trinkets, but I don't know which one to use!

 

First: I've studied a bit, and almost always everyone say to use the highest ilvl possible. However, I cannot say I agree on this one. So if someone's got any facts to backup one or the other, please provide.

 

Trinket1 (wearing now): http://www.wowhead.com/item=113931/beating-heart-of-the-mountain&bonus=560

 

Trinket2 (not wearing now): http://www.wowhead.com/item=128150/pressure-compressed-loop&bonus=563

 

I have both of them with the bonuses as provided in the links.

 

If you need anything more, just let me know and I'll answer as best as possible.

How come you disagree about using the higher ilevel one? Not only does it give more stats, but it has a socket as well

Thanks for looking into my post.

 

Maybe I'm misunderstanding something, but here are the primary stats (the way I read them):

ilvl676 - Agility: +313

ilvl685 - Agility: +265

 

So basically, what I read: The lower ilvl has more agility which is my primary stat. The higher ilvl has indeed more of the secondary stats, but I was always told that the primary stat is way more important than any secondary stat...

 

Thanks again.

Did some napkin math for you with the trinket stat values. Took the numbers on the trinkets and multiplied them by their stat weights

 

BHotM: 4382 + 108 = 4490

PCL: 3710 + 1064 + 731 = 5505

 

Note this is VERY rough math and doesn't take into account that you should be using BHotM every time you use Shadow Reflection.

 

With that in mind, I think the two are pretty close to identical in terms of performance. If you prepare properly and use SR on cooldown every single time it's up without any kind of delay, you'll probably see better results out of BHotM, but if that isn't the case then the PCL is probably slightly ahead

Thanks, the math exceeds my knowledge of calculating stats, but it looks like raw facts, so I trust that! Thank you very much for your time and effort.

Yeah I want to emphasize how rough it is. Like I said: my best guess, without simming your character, is that the two trinkets are pretty much equal

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      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.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Is my 860 eye of command a better trinket for use than my 885 Faulty countermeasure because of the strength bonus? Which should I use

      Hello,
      the gods of rng decided to reward me today with a  Draught of Souls titanforged from the timewalking chest. My question is, do I use it when I have max stacks of crusade or just use it on cd? Say for a fight that lasts 6 mins.
      Thanks!

      Hello everyone!

      I am searching for a WA that shows the icon of the trinket Mote of Sancification and a timer with the cooldown. I am using this trinket lately and I would like to know if it's on cooldown or not during fights.
      I looked online for a lot of them but couldn't find any that were up to date and actually works.
