Choice Energizing Elixir & Power Strikes

Hi guys,

 

I have kind of a hard question here. It's about the choice between the talent lvl45, and more importantly between Energizing Elixir and Power Strikes.

Now i know those two talents are pretty much worth. I tried them both, and both left me with different issues, for which i need some explanations.

 

For Energizing Elixir :

We all agree that to maximize it's effect, it's better to use it when you're out of Chi and Energy. The thing is, to be out of Chi AND Energy, you must've used all your spells, and so they are all on CD. So after using your Energizing Elixir, should you spam your Blackout Kick and loose the Combo stacks ? or use 1 Blackout Kick then 1 Tiger Palm to keep the stacks up even if you loose 1 Chi generation ? or just, what is the best thing to do after the Energizing Elixir ?

 

For Power Strikes :

For this i found something on the forum, but i don't know if it's worth. So, I sometimes had 2 chi and no Energy with Rising Sun Kick and Fists of Fury on CD, should i then use 2 Blackout Kicks and loose the combo stacks (coz' if i use only 1 kick i don't have enough Energy for a Tiger Palm after the GCD) ? or use 1 Blackout Kick and wait for the Energy for a Tiger Palm as i said before ? or (as i saw on the forum) use 1 Blackout Kick, tick once with the Crackling Thunder thing and Blackout again ?

 

There, i hope i made my point clear enough to understand and i'm sure others have the same "issue". It's more of a Theory Craft matter, but i think with the Mastery being so important and the stats increase with Legion coming, this may have an importance.

So. Generally when giving advice based on these two talents, I always recommend Power Strikes until someone is perfectly comfortable with Chi generation. Understanding Chi is simple enough, but thinking ahead 3-4+ moves and knowing how much Chi you will have is very different and directly impacts your use of the Elixir.

For Elixir, the reason it is so hard to use is because you NEVER want to break your combo unless it is 100% completely necessary. Do everything that you can to save your combo.

The advice apples to PS too. Hit combo is the most important thing to maintain. Use the crackling thunder to maintain it.

      Hi all, long-time lurker, first time poster. So I'm a bit of a new 110 Paladin player and I've been interested in the reason why Justicar's Vengeance is only good for solo content. I've been using it in dungeons and it works like a charm. I'm a bit of a selfish DPS, but I've seen an increase in using it compared to the other two talents in this tier. The reason: Crusade.
      When I run my rotation and Crusade is ready, I build up 5 Holy Power the normal way and then after using Crusade, I use Justicar's Vengeance to spend it all. After that, I use Wake of Ashes for another 5 Holy Power and a second Justicar's Vengeance. At this point I have 10 stacks of the damage/haste buff and it's only taken a few seconds to do.

      I don't really use any of the other talents, so I feel like it'd be a waste to choose them in this tier.

      Beside all the builds, rotations and bis legendaries, what are the ideal stat percentages  according to their importance haste>mastery>everything else? Other than valarjar berserkers, what are the other bis leggys for single target and mythic plus dungeons?

      Something's been bugging me recently - why is mastery more valuable to an Unholy DK than versatility?  It seems to me that versatility should be superior because it increases ALL damage (shadow & physical) while mastery only increases shadow damage.  Does 1% of mastery scale differently than 1% of versatility in some way?  I assume I am misunderstanding something here about how versatility works.

      I have three trinkets to choose from, Two from Mythic EN, Heightened Senses @ 880, Vial of Nightmare Fog @ 880, and finally from Nightbane Kara i have the Ethereal Urn @875. If any other experienced resto shamans could weigh in and help me make a decision it would be appreciated.

      Hey all, I apologize if this is common knowledge, but my rogue is one of my alts and I don't know as much about the class as I'd like. I used to play outlaw just fine, but I'm interested in a strong spec that isn't so RNG dependent. I'm a bit confused as to how much mastery is needed to pull off a poison build vs a bleed a build. The talent guide says to go for poisons if you have a mastery-heavy build. What constitutes a lot of mastery? My rogue is wearing ilvl 847 with 27.79% crit, 7.83% haste, 116.2% mastery, 3.6/1.8% versatility. That is based on recommendations from Ask Mr. Robot. I primarily run mythics and I would like recommendations on the best tier 1 and 6 talent suggestions.
