Haste paladin with a gearing question

5 posts in this topic

Whats up guys, my prot pally is 510 and ive been slowly rotating haste and mastery gear into my prot set. Now, i understand that crit is horrific for us so i dont bother with any ret gear that holds crit, but ret gear that's Haste/hit or haste/exp or haste/mastery is glorious for me. however, what is actually stopping me from gearing my ret set fully with the above stat gear and then just slapping a 1hander and shield on the ret set and tanking with a haste build? i mean...could i literally be a tanking ret pally essentially? obviously this would put my parry/dodge at nearly 0, so is there a mitigation sweet spot or haste breakpoint i should be shooting for?

From my experience your avoidance is not gonna matter at all, the only real reason why you would even look at the regular tanking pieces with dodge/parry is because they can reset your avenger shield.

Theck's work on the prot pala stat prio is marvelous and he's been promoting haste builds for quite some time. My prot pally is geared towards haste itself so you could take a look at it. http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/kazzak/Solidwall/advanced as you can see I've got the head from feng heroic and it has crit on it, the only real reason is that it got so damn much haste so it's good.

There's exceptions to this gearing method ofcourse, such as the valor ring from shado-pan assault wich gives small haste but loads of crit.

But my opinion on it all is that you should rather take a crit/haste item than a dodge/parry item. Always.

never in a million years thought that i would ever apply what i learned in econometrics, but without that class i would have been lost reading that page. thats fascinating that cntrl/haste still holds a dominant lead over avoidance even after they buffed AS procs. maybe blizz should discuss their new strat to burn haste pallies with theck before they implement it in patches.

      Hey there,
       
      so Ive been turning to icy-veins' guides for advice for some time now, and I hope somebody can help me with my current problem as well. 
      Im a Ret-Pally currently 903 equipped with 45 traits. According to the parses on warcraftlogs and also my personal feeling, Im performing rather poorly on NH HC raids. 
       
      Here's some info:
      Armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/azshara/Vorenus/advanced
      WoWLog: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/TZ8gBPH37FYKhzv6/
       
      Things I am already aware of:
      - Zeal isnt optimal for single target (forgot to get tomes to change during raid) 
      - Potion of old war is better than Prolonged power (same issue)
      - Missing enchants on neck and back
       
      Now I see how the above might add up some damage, but it feels like im lacking substantially more. The parse of scorp in particular seemed underwhelming, although this might be because we didnt pull all adds constantly (?). Anyhow, I looked at checkmywow for reference, and I wasted almost no CDs, barely any HP and my HP-Spender with judgement up ratio was between 95 and 100%. 
       
      I dont have access to Convergence or 4 set bonus right now, nor any better legendary than Sephuz. 
       
      I wanna improve but I am kinda stuck right now, unsure of what to work on. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Regards,
      TemNoc

      So here I am, consulting Icy Veins forums. I am a Frost Death Knight, with an iLevel of 885 that is REALLY struggling with my dps. I'm running a BoS build because it was recommended to my by other Frost Dks. I have done a ton of research about this issue to no avail and I really need some professional help. 
      Here's my armory and my charts for my last Heroic Nighthold with my guild
      Armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/dalaran/Kumunyo/simple
      Dps Charts: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/21405978/latest#
      Note: I do see that my Haste is incredibly high, I'm currently working to get the 4-piece tier gear.
