Disc Trinket Advice, Please!

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys, need some advice. My BiS trinkets are listed as Demonic Phylactery and Desecrated Shadowmoon Insignia. I currently have Desecrated Shadowmoon Insignia, and Demonic Phylactery. I also, however, have Intiution's Gift. Should I go for the Insignia and Phylactery? Or Insignia and Gift? The spirit doesn't quite make up for the amount of mana I save with the reduced cost of spells, but that massive amount of crit... Gift upgraded gives me 436 int, 436 spirit, and 3,512 crit, vs the Phylactery's 359 int 359 haste and 702 reduced mana cost. I do have some trouble with mana, but between the channeled mana pots and Power Word: Solace (or should I go for Mindbender?) I do okay.

Which two should I go for?

Hi,

 

Ill give my 10c worth without going into a 400 page spreadsheet and 6 years of research.

 

TL;DR - IMO DSI and Phylactery

 

The fundamentals IMO come down to how the Gift and Phylactery operate.

 

The gift gives the crit buff for 15 seconds every 90 seconds. The buff is limited to that window and causes my dislike for it. If you cant cast mass PoH or spam PW:S for that 15 seconds and have enough damage to warrant the spam (maybe gorefiend feast) then it will end up as "overshielding".

 

At the higher gear levels  the value of haste increases allowing you to lower the GCD and cast more shields. The Phylactery is a flat mana reduction which means IMO you are able to sustain a higher level of healing over the course of the whole fight as you have a higher effective mana pool and i find that more desirable than a crit burst every 15 seconds.

 

Empowered archangel devalues crit and if you are using AA on cd then you get a 100% crit chance every 30 seconds anyway.

 

 

As for the mana.

Solace will give you more if you use it on cd properly. If you find you cant spare the GCD or you suck at using it (LOL) then minbender isnt too far behind and is only required to be remebered once per minute.

 

I have made a few assumptions and the age old in a vacuum vs in reality and trying to squeeze out the last smidge of healing will always leave some open to critique but these are my thoughts none the less.

 

Happy Killing

Brew

Awesome, okay, thank you very much :) Been using the Phylactery, and I'll stick with it. Same with Solace. Been debating on which one to use for weeks now.

Hi Brew - could you expand a little on how to use Solace on CD properly - I'm assuming "every time it's up, mate" is probably an oversimplification? ;)  I use Solace, but am unsure if I'm doing so properly - would appreciate your 10c worth

      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.

      Hey all,
      most likely something similar has already been asked but still I thought it cant hurt to make my own post.
      Basically I am a Blood DK (https://worldofwarcraft.com/de-de/character/malganis/deathadan) and I am wondering which trinkets I should use.
      Right now I am wearing a Feverish Carapace (Goroth, iLvl 900) and the Reliquary of the Damned (Desolate Host, iLvl 925).
      Yet I recently acquired a Darkmoon Trinket Immortality iLvl 900 and I am unsure of which trinket to replace. Any Ideas?
      I know the Goroth trinket is technically better but I am unsure as the reliquary provides 4k Stam.
       
      any help appreciated
