Better items or 4 piece bonus?

I have two Empowered pieces of gear with multistrike at 695 (which I stack as a paladin - the guides I've read and Icy Veins tell me that as a Pally, I should pick either crit or multistrike and most the gear I got was multistrike). However I just got two pieces of Demonbreaker gear BOTH with crit for the same respective slots (one 691 warforged, one 685) that gives me a 4 piece bonus that gives me a chance to increase my attack speed by 50% for 5 seconds and every second it diminishes.

 

 

I'm just wondering what would be the best choice?

 

The two pieces of 695 gear gives:
+4 armor

+11 strength

+16 stam

+254 multistrike

+217 multistrike

-238 crit

-159 crit

-212 mastery

-No four piece bonus 

 

vs the two Demonbreaker set pieces

 

-4 armor

-11 strength

-16 stam

-254 multistrike

-217 multistrike

+238 crit

+159 crit

+212 mastery

+Four piece bonus

the 2 piece also gives you 3 charges of Avenging Wrath, which is a huge boost over the LFR set in general, it's also important to note that crit and multistrike are equal in weight but only get one, but getting multistrike isn't bad.

I'd stick with the LFR tier set for now. White damage is actually deceptively some of your highest damage. This is an example on Fel Lord.

When using Seraphim, it will almost always out damage TV. Fel Lord is a fairly short fight, so here's an example from Mythic Council, which is a longer figher (currently about 8 minutes for our guild).

Even using Final Verdict you get these kinds of numbers:

Some of this information may be made irrelevant since you lack the T18 tier bonus, but what I'm trying to get at is to never underestimate your white damage. The reason is because it's consistent. With a general amount of haste, maybe 5-10%, you swing about every 3.3 seconds. This is about the equivalence of using Crusader Strike on CD without it invoking a GCD.

 

So, keep your LFR tier set bonus and only break it for significantly better gear like heroic HFC gear or norm tier pieces.

That's what I'm trying to say.  My head and chest pieces of the LFR set have crit when all my other pieces besides cape and one trinket have multistrike.  Thus, I was curious if it's to my detriment as the head and chest pieces of the 695 baleful items that do have multistrike.  

@Rothco This is what I figured.  I did some LFR and my Dps was marginally better with the 4 piece set bonus.  Thank you.

      When I started playing again after several years off, I chose the wrong weapon/artifact chain for my Ret Paladin.  I choose Truthguard instead of Ashbringer.  So I am at 105 with Truthguard now and I was told by Bliz several levels ago that I could swap weapons at some point although I was not told how or when. I don't use Truthguard in play now just a normal weapon and seem to do ok. What must I do?
      From Blizzard -  "I understand you are contacting us about your starting artifact weapon! I know it would be frustrating wanting to use Retribution and the Ashbringer and getting the Truth Guard by mistake. I made this same mistake on my Shaman. I was anxious to get the Doom Hammer and didn’t realize I was required to use the Enhancement spec. I do have some information to share with you.
      The bad news is, once an artifact is selected, there’s no changing that. Luckily, you’re not stuck with this forever. You’ll need to go through some of the story line with the Truth Guard, but once you hit level 102, you’ll be presented with the option to pick up the other 2 artifact weapons. From there you will be able to use any one you’d like. ^_^"

      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

      Hello there,

      I am trying to find a character that suits me and 'till now i didn't find it..
      I have a Paladin level 110, a Rogue, DH, Warrior and a Druid. I really enjoyed to play Prot. Paladin but i was overwhelmed with all the knowledge i need to know for raids.I have to say that this is the class that i played the most. I have to say that i usually play in weekends and sometimes in week days.
      I enjoyed playing warrior in PVP but, that was it, nothing else..

      Two days ago i just got my Druid level 110 and played as Feral (with the intention to play Resto or Guard 'cause i want to be a healer and/or a tank but i found the rotations a little off for me..)

      Anyway, my question is, what should i play? I was thinking about a Disc Priest or a Ench/Resto Shaman or a Brew/Mist Monk. I just can't decide what i should play and unfortunately i have to level them from scratch..

      Any advice ?

      I really need a new perspective 'bout what i should play :)

      Thanks!

      As the title suggests - I think it's time that we discuss our Beacon(s) and their place in the current 'meta'.
      Most of you will probably not agree with me but I feel like there's a very limited impact to beacon currently. When Legion was first announced I was thrilled at the prospect of tanks losing the 'I am a wall of iron....' and becoming more dependent on their healers again. And I say this despite playing a Guardian Druid for most of WoD with raiding Mythic throughout the expansion.
      Once more it was going to be down to your healers to keep you level and you would focus primarily on smoothing out the damage intake while still picking up adds, tank swaps, controlling pace, positioning etc. (the list goes on and on obviously!). Healing yourself was no longer to be your responsibility!
      Currently it feels like we've moved too far away from that again. Now this - of course, being an issue not only for paladins but an overall issue with the current state of tanking.
      But I digress.... The reason why I feel Beacon needs to be reworked slightly is because currently beacon is having a very minor effective healing vs the overhealing it 'provides'. I've heard several arguments for this. Some feel that 'it is free overhealing so why should we care?' but I lean to the side of: What is the point of having a spell, which is undoubtedly one of our core abilities, that have such a low impact?
      I feel like some tuning is in order for it. Maybe rework what it actually does? Tuning overall healing throughput of tanks?
      Rework our mastery to be more interactive with throughput in relation to beacons?
      I can't really offer any substantial solutions to the problem but I still feel that it is, in fact, a problem.
      What are your thoughts on this? Has Blizzard dug themselves into a hole again with the current state of tanking or could a rework of the Beacon sort the issue so that it feels that Holy Paladins are once more the Go-To 'Tank Healer' with a more impactful kit?
