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
