Stuff and spec optimization : 2 questions

5 posts in this topic

Hiiiii

First, thanks for all the good work you are doing for us.

I am facing two questions that I do not manage to solve (sorry for my english, not my native language so I am doing my best). 2 questions that I do not manage to solve, even after discussion with several rogues.

Question about optimizing my stuff.

Here the link to armory, combat spec. ilvl 490:

http://www.askmrrobo...eu/garona/kyoub

In a couple of weeks had the chance to loot :

-Gloves of the Thousandfold Blades(Raid finder) :

http://www.wowhead.com/item=86642

- Legguards of Failing Purification(Heroic 10)

http://www.wowhead.com/item=90518

For me I have several option, and I do not know which one is better.

1/ take the Gloves of the Thousandfold Blades (Raid finder), upgrade to 2/2 .

So I reach the 4/5 Tiers 14 buff! Seems cool.

But I lose lot of haste for example and also loose one ilvl

2/ I do not take Gloves of the Thousandfold Blades(Raid finder) but I keep the current glove that I already have. So as I am still 3/5 with the Tiers 14, in addition I decide to skip the current leg setT14 that I already have (so I am now 2/5 for tiers 14) and I take Legguards of Failing Purification(Heroic 10) and upgrade it to 2/2

---> with this option I do not have my 4/5 tiers T4 buff, but my global stat are better.(more agi/more haste than option 1)

3/ maybe no good choice, it is better to wait to have a better loot to have a real impact and do not waste valor point in upgrade. But I would like to optimize asap to be efficient asap with my raid guilde!

Do not know which option should I take!!!!Really do not know!!!!

Question about Assa vs Combat and loose of ilvl

My second spec is Assasination.

When I shift to assassination my weapon are

- Dagger of the Seven Stars

http://www.wowhead.com/item=86741

(not upgrade yet cause it is a recent loot)

- Koegler's Ritual Knife(herric donjon)

http://www.wowhead.c...tuel-de-koegler

Otherwise I have the same stuff (just have to reforge).

Going from Combat to assasination I lose 2 ilvl.I goes from 490 to 488.

I am losing some DPS with combat on some mono target bosses. And I am wondering If I can improve my dps by switching assassination on that kind of bosses,even if I am losing 2 ilvl

Someone has got a clue?

If you have some advices, please do not hesitate!

Cheers

Hiii

no answer maybe it was stupid questions :P

to follow up my post I ve decided as follow :

Do not take the last lfr loot to reach the 4/4. I prefer to keep a higher i lvl (+1) and have also more addtionnal stat(I can add 2 gems vs 0 for the lfr loot).

I have also respe Assa, I lose 2 ilvl but I will try to see if even with this loose of 2 ilvl I will improve my dps again mono target boss (vs the combat spec)

A kind of empirical tries, I have made some test but not in optimal and balance condition. So I will see in real raid condition

see u

Sorry for the lack of response. I'll try to give you a reply tomorrow. I've been very busy with our guides for Patch 5.2 :)

For the first question, I can't really say, I would need to see your Combat gear on the armory. Right now, you are Assassination.

For the second question, Assassination and Combat perform very similarly, in all situations, so I would stick to Combat in your case, especially since it is a weapon issue.

no worries, It is better for the rogue community to work on the guid than a single question :P

thanks for your kind reply

I have kept my spec combat during several days to follow my post, I have just repsec assa yesterday nigth (bougth all gemmes and echant :P ) bad timing :P :-)

I am going to plug my combat spec for the armory but keep in mind the gemming is not good,do not know if it will be sufficient for you if you have not the optimize picture of my combat rogue

But for the 2nd answer if i understand your answer for assa vs combat, I have made the bad choice (I have just upgrade the weapon to 2/2 for the raid of tonight). bad timing again :P

see u and thansk again for your reply

      Hello all, 
      I've recently been falling behind in DPS despite getting better gear and iLvl, and I know I could be doing way better.
      I used to get purples and oranges almost every fight but as of late I've been getting blues and sometimes even greens.
      I finally got shoulders the other day and I think I'm not using them correctly as well, also have seen a lot of people using NBF even with shoulders instead of DoS after the subterfuge patch, idk what's better.
       
      Any help would be greatly appreciated, also any trinket / legendary changes for certain fights would be a great help.
      Legendaries: KJ, Cloak, Bracers, Shoulders
      Trinkets: NBF 890, DoS 895, CoF 890
      Also idk if my stats are current anymore as well, LMK. Been stacking crit since ever since I got 150% mastery, I don't know if this is optimal anymore.

      So I've been pushing and pushing to get my DPS up over the course of the new expansion.  I've managed to bag my self the legendary shoulders and feet. I've been looking at logs and trying to improve things. I learnt a new opener (which massively improved my dps) and got my crit up (as I noticed other rogues had much higher crit than me).
      And now I just don't know what to do. I just can't seem to get better!
      I'll put a link to logs from the last heroic nighthold we did. It wasn't my best night performance wise  anyway (i'm playing on a potato and we had a huge raid group - fps sat between 6-15 for the whole raid). I think I'm doing something wrong with my main rotation when compared to the other rogue than joined us but I just don't know what it is. I'm stumped.

      So if anyone can see obvious mistakes then please shout at me so I can fix them. It's getting really frustrating!    You should be able to get to past logs through this link too.

      So I'm always in the lower end of things when it comes to my parses, which I know on certain fights I struggle with bleeds and other things when heavy amounts of switching and running take place (Elisande/Gul'dan).  I am sticking to the icy-veins opener in most cases (maybe heroic Guldan a bit different when I try to save Vendetta for empowered eyes and such). My biggest thing I feel like I'm missing is when to properly pool energy, I'm almost ALWAYS casting which I know shouldn't be the case really.  I know my opener DPS won't be as high as some because of only having footpads, but sustained it should be pretty high since I have two MA, CoF, and footpads. Just feel like I'm leaving some on the table because my parses are always very, very low like sub 50%.

      Hi everyone! I am slightly suck on what gear i should be trying to go for right now, and itemization for what i have, and should be wearing, my armory is here :http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/stormrage/Bãttousai/simple. My issue is that i have the legendary cloak and legendary pants so far and according to the guide those are both of the slots for the best tier pieces, is it worth wearing the tier pants over Valeeras Will? i dont have any logs at the moment, but i usually parse around 60% on fights with not much movement, but drops down to 30% on fights with movement and i feel like that is because my gear is not optimized compared to others of my item level, i have been playing rogue for a long time and i fully understand the rotation and am confident that i am doing everything correctly. How much of an item level drop should i allow to get better optimized stats? Thanks! Edit - The gems and weapon ilvl on the armory link is bogus, my weapons are 896 not 925, other than that everything is correct.
