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,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      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 or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      1. can i do comparable ( to subtlety ) damage as assasination rogue? what is difference in %?
      2. shadowcraft shows me that subterfuge is 25k dps more than nightstalker, is it real?
      3. simcraft shows me, that my dps now as assasination is 25-30k less than subtlety ( 55 and 59 artifact level ), will it be the same gap when i get 59 assa artifact, or subtlety damage is always higher?

      Hi,
      I have a question: For the ascendance / gambler build the haste stat is on top of the priority list. Our trinket priority list shows that a static mastery stat increase via a trinket is higher on the priority than a static haste increase.
      How come? 
      Regards, Enqua

      I recently obtained several high item level trinkets for resto, but since healing isn't supported on simcraft I have no way of telling what to use when.
      I have a 930 Amalgam's Seventh Spine, a 910 The Deceiver's Grand Design, a 905 Sea Star of the Depthmother, and a 910 Bloom of New Growth
      I'm currently using the grand design and sea star, but am wondering if any of the others are better than the star.
       
      I also have a question about ele trinkets, specifically at what number of targets I should swap my 930 Tarnished Sentinel Medallion for my 920 Spectral Thurible? My second ele trinket is a 895 Whispers in the Dark, which as far as I can tell should always be used.
