Opinions on still using hellfire tier?

10 posts in this topic

Hi there, i was wondering. Is the 4 set bonus from hellfire citadel, for hunters, a viable option.

Yes its a massive stat loss and what not... BUUUT!! Instant aimed shots!!

 

Now i dont know whether this is just bad scaling or what.

 

I beat my mate, who is a pretty good mage, ilvl 830ish when i level 103.

 

Ive constantly been out dps'ing other memebers of the group from anything up to double the next guys damage.....

Might i add that aimed shot is one of our most powerful attacks. Atm i can hit 250k crit. Nothing extreme riiight.

BUT because of the 4 set from hellfire, i can spam it......

Just think about it :3

It works because you are 103 and Legion dungeons scale. It will be moot come 110.

 

You should save it for Timewalker however, as it would make a killing there.

Making Aimed Shot instant doesn't actually give you a whole lot of damage. 

With base GCD of 1.5 second and base Aimed Shot cast time of 2.0 seconds, you win just half a second of cast time. 

On occasion, you will also be able to shoot an extra Aimed Shot into a Vulnerability buff window, but it's not that big of a benefit. We don't actually cast THAT many Aimed Shots nowadays, considering Marked Shot is a cheaper instant cast that does roughly the same damage and also applies Vulnerable, and there are even Lock and Load procs that also make Aimed Shots instant.

Finally, I'm not even sure the tier bonus will function on level 110.

Let us know how it goes! I'm inclined to agree with the others though. It's really not worth it IMO.

You know you could just simcraft it, right?

Of course, but I didn't have the time to do it myself, unfortunately. Thanks for doing it yourself!

In this case, you don't even need to use simcraft, you just need some logical thinking.  Each piece you replace with a t18 item is going to be at least 100 ilvls higher than the t18 item (given 840 pre-raid Legion gear vs 735 2/2 Mythic t18 gear).  The best you could get away with is using 2 medium budget items (shoulders and gloves) and 2 high-budget items (choose from chest, legs, and head).  On each high budget item, that's 738 Agility and roughly 650 secondary stats lost, and you have 2 of these at best.  For Medium budget items: 553 Agility and roughly 500 Secondary stats lost.  That's compared to Mythic HFC tier pieces, which not many people have (relatively).  The differences are larger when compared to Heroic or Normal pieces.  The loss of stats alone is more than enough to warrant not using the old tier sets.  That's 2576 Agility and and roughly 2300 secondary stats lost, again, at best.

I imagine it is even worse given that your t18 set bonus is buffing something that is directly impacted by the amount of agility/stats you have. It would probably need to be a set bonus that is independent of your current stats, something along the lines of the old Fury bonus for Warriors (reducing the timer on a major offensive CD). Even then, it would most likely just be nerfed for 110.

      -note: We will consider all good applications
      -socials are welcome to join.
      Critical Experiment is based on the Horde side of Draenor - est 2007. We are a late night raiding guild. We are looking for mature players with good knowledge of their class and role within a raid environment.
      We raid after the usual hours (22.30-01.00 server time sometimes to 01:30) 2+1 days per week (Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday as a progress night). We are mature players who have other commitments at 'normal' raid times, so we take the opportunity to get together and play at a later hour.
      What you can expect to get from us?
      * We aim to clear all content atleast on Heroic difficulty. When we can, on top of that we try getting some Mythic kills too.
      * A relaxed but firm raiding atmosphere.
      * A group of skilled raiders who enjoy seeking progression in PvE raiding.
      * A friendly home. Our members are sociable players and enjoy raiding old content, doing challenge mode, achievement runs and alts runs wherever possible. As such, a raiders friends/family are welcome in CE
      * A semi-hardcore raiding guild whose aim is to use our limited hours in the best way that we can, maintaining progress with a decent atmosphere.
      * We provide all "raiders" with free repairs from the Guild Bank 24/7. Members can also make use of the extensive mats available in the Guild Bank, all of which are provided for raiding.
      What do we expect from you if you raid with us?
      * Maturity in both age and attitude towards your fellow team mates (Don’t bother applying if you’re under the age of 17, we will most likely decline,)
      * A solid internet connection and a solid gaming rig to raid on (You’re useless to us if your connection drops out every encounter or your system cannot handle the FPS)
      * A high level of skill and sensible raiding. Know your role, class and the encounters.
      * Punctuality - Showing up for raids in good time and being well prepared with flasks, food buffs, etc (though supplied by gb better be safe then sorry).
      * Be active on the Guild forums. Engage in tactics discussion and socialise with the Guild.
      * Able to attend minimum 2/3 of raids scheduled raids per week (If not, we will remove your raider status or fail your trial if accepted to CE; progress night attendance is really important for the core)
      * You’re able to take constructive criticism during raids and subsequently able to use that criticism to improve your level of skill, and play.
      * We expect all members to be able to connect to "Discord". Mic is optional.

      This is my best leather farm spot for the current patch. You can farm minimum a 2000 leathers per hour and many "Blood of Sargeras" + the loot from "Stomachs" and shoulder enchant. This can get you more than 40k gold per hour, even i didnt mention the boe epic loot which can drop. You can boost your farm using HopServer addon.
      Spot 1: in Stormheim
      Spot2: in Azsuna

      <Cheers Bro> is an alliance raiding guild on Stormrage (US). We are recruiting for Tomb of Sargaras Heroic/Mythic progression.  Current progression can be found here: WoW Progress Cheers Bro
      Who we are: Experienced raiders ranging from recent to Vanilla content and top 40 US raiding progression under our belts. Looking to challenge ourselves with progression and achievements, but mostly to have fun and enjoy doing things as a guild. Our goal is to down all current content and obtain AOTC as well as push Mythic content.
      What we offer:   Experienced, stable leadership with years of raiding experience. Free repairs & Consumables. Loot is RCLootCouncil. Discord for communication. Off-nights consist of M+, PVP and general mayhem with gearing alts.
      Raid Times:  Friday, Saturday 8:30pm EST - 11:30pm EST Progression Nights. We also raid (optional) on Tues/Thurs current non-progression content (ex. if we are progressing in Heroic/Mythic, we will clear early to push progression on Fri/Sat)What we expect: Individuals will come prepared for raids, gemmed & enchanted, having read up on strategies, and contributed to their gearing with mythics and world quests outside of normal raid times. Raiders will run the appropriate addons to assist with raiding such as DBM/Skada/Recount. Racism, sexism, and drama will not be tolerated in any form.
      Raiders should know their class, or where to find the appropriate information. Additionally, they should be open to give as well as receive constructive, positive feedback in an adult raiding environment.
