Tier 15 Prot Bonus

Recommended Posts

Hi again! People were really helpful in my previous post so I figured I would throw in another question.

It's about the set bonus for the prot pally in tier 15 (+40% block on WoG), another pally from my guild said that bonus i as good as 12000 points of mastery, is that so?? seems like a lot... And would that mean I should move from SotR to WoG for mitigation and switch all my mastery points to a more useful stat? (like haste)

What I'm thinking, and this is just a theory from someone that doesn't have much of a clue, is that if I switch from SotR to WoG I would get bigger spikes since blocking chance is that, just a chance.

My guild just started TOT progression (yeah, I know we are late xP) and we had a hard time taking down horridon. Since I can clean myself between doors I get to tank the big guy the whole fight, and, as I see it, the block chance from the tier set bonus wouldn't be as useful as SotR to stop me from dying of a Triple Puncture. And I was thinking probably the same could be said about Tortos' snapping bite.

But I would like a word from more experienced players =) Thanks!

In short, the 2-piece is a nice bonus for when we have to WoG, but not worth using as a maintenance buff.

It has been clearly simulated at this point that Control/Haste is the best priority.

  • Stamina is still your best survivability stat, haste is a reasonably close second, mastery a distant third, dodge and parry tied for an even more distant fourth.
  • Capping hit (7.5%) and expertise (15%) are still your most important secondary stat goals (i.e. Control comes before Haste). It’s not clear from the data whether stamina is better or worse than hit and expertise – my guess is that stamina is better, but it should rarely come up in practice since you can’t reforge into stamina anyway.
  • Control/Haste should be the default gearing strategy for pretty much everyone nowadays, augmented by as much stamina as you need to feel comfortable in the encounter. Rule of thumb: if you keep going splat, pick up some more stamina.

Hi and thanks for the quick response. A few minutes after I posted this I realized I hadn't checked sacredduty for a while and did, and found that post about set bonus, I don't really understand all the numbers but I saw that same advice you quoted here but I did wanted to wait for a response since I was trying to understand what the other pally meant when he said the bonus was "as good as 12000 mastery", guess his numbers where just off...

      Hey all,
      Not new to hearthstone but haven't been playing constantly and just jumping back in towards the end of July.  I am not sure if there's a better name or configuration for this yet but I've had some good luck with it so far.  If nothing else it's just really fun to play for me.  
      This deck has no duplicates to take advantage of Zephyrs the Great and Sir. Finley of the Sand.
      Never posted a deck before so not sure if this is how of the place but feel free to give me constructive feedback.
