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.

      Hey all. 
      I've been beating my head against the wall in regards to my DPS.

      I'm very ashamed actually. In the past I have pulled *What I thought was very good numbers* only to see that my DPS is in constant decline. I understand most people are going Frost, but I have invested so much time into Unholy, to switch now would only increase my agitation. I'm no longer a clicker, that's a plus! 
      I have my two piece currently. Currently on Heroic content and I'm needing some advice. Rotation is pretty common with what's suggested. We have a few DK's in our raid group, most of them Frost with another Unholy, who COMPLETELY blows me out of the water. Maybe it's because I'm stuck with Eye Of Command and on multi-add boss fights, it's useless. Help me fellow DK's. I would SO appreciate it.

      Hey!
      What's the min uptime for Sephuz to be worth using it in raids over Prydaz? Maybe worth mentioning that I'm combining one of them with Anger of the Half-Giants as well.

      Hello, fellow Warlocks
      I recently received Odr, Shawl of the Ymirjar, which does "Enemies marked by your Havoc take 8% increased damage from your single target spells." Currently I've been running Channel Demonfire, but I am curious about Wreak Havoc. I know it's amazing for cleave, but would taking Wreak Havoc benefit more than demonfire, even if it is pure single target when having this legendary? I usually browse Icy Veins guides, and haven't seen a specific comment about this.
      Apolgies if this has been asked somewhere else already.

      Just want to share my TMW profile. It helps me a lot in raids and mythic+, when there are lots of mechanics you need to keep your eye on, especially if you are new to WOW like me.

      I love mogging. To my knowledge, these are all original. I'm sharing cause I love finding cool mogs to spark my imagination and push the boundaries of what I've made. You'll notice I have favorite pieces of gear that I re-use in a number of these. As far as I know these are all blood elf death knight obtainable. I have completed almost every set you see here. I'm currently digging frost...

      I have one of every class so I'll eventually have a video up for them all. I won't be sharing what each piece is. You are of course welcome to remake them yourself, I've just found that discovering the pieces and trying to see which ones fit really help devolop mog sense. If that's what you're looking for, this video should be fun!
