Legendary Bracers Playstyle

8 posts in this topic

Hey ,

i have a question regarding the leg. bracers.

Is there any change in playstyle and stat weights when u have  / use them ? 

I guess one uses SS at 5 instead of 3 right ? to use it most efficent ?

In theory, you could burst 8 runes with a single Scourge Strike if both the shadow and physical parts crit: 1 + 5 (bracers) + 2 (Castigator) = 8. It's tedious and inefficient to always stack 8 wounds before scourge striking though.

I know that some people skilled out of castigator when they got the bracers. However, I think that Castigator is still good because it also increases the amount of wounds you generate. Additionally, it's pretty rare that your bracers actually burst 5 wounds AND you crit at the same time, so in most cases Castigator still provides a benefit. I personally would agree with using SS at 5 wounds. This way, it's possible to be wasteful, but pretty unlikely.

I don't know if your stat priority changes with the bracers. My guess is that mastery becomes more valuable, but as far as I'm aware, noone has actually run the simulations to generate exact weights.

So i basicly  FS to 5 then start SS´ing to burst. Should i talent out of castigator  ? Because in the DK discord someone said that the stat weights swap from Crit  / Haste  to Haste / Mastery

And ty for the helpful responses so far.

In my previous reply, I gave an explanation for why I think that Castigator is still the best choice. You can find some more discussion on the topic in this thread:

While i agree with what u said about Castigator i am kinda confused about Castigator in combination with what was told to me in the discord that u would swap from crit haste to  haste mastery. Doesnt this change make castigator weaker ? 

 

 

NVM got my answer from the discord.

Well I don't know what they told you on the discord, but I assume that you'd still be going crit with Castigator, since that talent is pretty pointless otherwise.

Stay crit/haste haste/mastery is invalid, use castigator, shadow infusion and bursting sores.

      I think simcraft doesn't have appropriate preset for qapla and aspect of beast talent.
      how can i find the preset for qapla and aspect of beast talent??
       
      (I don't know exact word for preset.  I mean sth like this
      # Executed before combat begins. Accepts non-harmful actions only.
      actions.precombat=flask
      actions.precombat+=/augmentation,type=defiled
      actions.precombat+=/food
      actions.precombat+=/summon_pet
      # Snapshot raid buffed stats before combat begins and pre-potting is done.
      actions.precombat+=/snapshot_stats
      actions.precombat+=/potion
       
      # Executed every time the actor is available.
      actions=auto_shot
      actions+=/counter_shot,if=target.debuff.casting.react
      actions+=/arcane_torrent,if=focus.deficit>=30
      actions+=/berserking,if=buff.bestial_wrath.remains>10

      actions+=/bestial_wrath

      summon_pet=cat
      this was in mmo but i don't think this works appropriate cause when i used this DPS dropped about 20k.
      but when i used aspect of beast in-game DPS difference was not that much)

      Okay, so i got a 3rd legendary for my frost mage, Sephuz's Secret, the issue is that I have the crafted legendary shoulders and Lady Vashj's gloves equipped. My stats: Crit 33%, Haste 23%, Mastery 32%, and Vers 4%. When I equip the ring, my crit and haste bump quite a bit up, and i lose a bit of mastery (because the gloves i use as a replacement have crit and haste too). Should I keep gloves on for their equip bonus, or should i replace them with Sephuz's for the stats and ilvl increase? I know my crit will be above the soft cap with ring, but i can swap gems and enchants for haste ones as noted on the guide.
      ~Thanks, Underclocked

      Right, so today Kil'Jaeden's burning wish dropped for me, my 3rd legendary.
      I have Shard of the Exodar and Cord of Infinity currently - and with the 7.2 changes to Cord of Infinity I don't know what to do/pick/run with?
       
      Is Burning Wish still going to be BiS with 7.2, the changes to Cord of Infinity on PTR are pretty awesome, and as for Shard - two Time Warps per fight is pretty awesome too.
       
      So, hence my dilemma lol...
      Forgot to add, I play Arcane.

      Alrighty, let's start with my char:
      http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/the-maelstrom/Kvaksalver/simple
      Currently, I got the head, cloak, belt, ring and kil'jaden trinket.
      Question is, which combination should i use? (Note that I'm using BoS/GS build) I'm pretty sure it's tied between head + ring / head + belt. 
      But please, by all means help me out on this one :-)

      Just looted a Convergence of Fates last night and this morning got Spiritual Journey from Blingtron of all things. 
      Question is.  
      Spiritual Journey + Convergence of Fates + Feral Lunge > Emalon's Charged Core  for single target? 
      I have a Tier chest replacement for Emalon's and I figure any fight that has enough to proc Emalon's means I wear it for sure. But what about Single Target fights? Any thoughts on this?
