[Balance] Stat Shifting @ 740 ilvl

Hey all,

 

One of the things I have been concerned about as my gear catches up to that of my guildmates (new addition to the roster) is that my stats are drastically shifting away from where I feel I want them to be. For example, I got the Mannoroth chest and Archi belt, the former of which also allowed me to change from tier gloves to a surprisingly well-statted and socketed pair of  5-man gloves (shown on my Armory)

Swapping from my old 3 items (Soc Chest w/ Socket, Isk Belt, Tier Gloves), my stat changes are:

 

+ 11% mastery

+ 6.09% haste

- 4.7% multistrike

- 7% crit (down to 14% unbuffed)

Intellect gain: 18

 

For reference, here is a parse while wearing the old gear -- I'm perfectly happy with my performance as is:

My concern going forward is, while sure there's a notable haste and mastery gain, the 7% crit seems absolutely huge. I myself have already experienced Shooting Stars droughts, and dropping that much crit would make those droughts more frequent. 

 

Obviously the sims are showing that every balance druid should wear X set of gear, but I'm just curious as to the thoughts from other high parsing or high gear point druids on the forums about whether or not you feel the loss of crit in your gearing. 

 

Best,

- Haumph

side note: I have like 800 crit rating.  I don't see a real problem with Shooting Stars procs.  In fact to me, it helps me predict it better since there is less of a chance of it coming very consecutively. 

 

in short: It doesn't matter.  ilvl > (most) stats.

      Hey Guys-  Been playing a while, but looking to get into a balance druid for PVE. Wondering if anyone would be around for a paid hour of time to help give me a crash course and explain rotations and help me get set up with hotkeys.
       
      I dont expect anything for free  in life. Let me know :)

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      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.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.
