UH - 20% Haste needed?

Hey guys,

 

Just wondering peoples thoughts on the 20% Haste Minimum for UH DPS.

Who thinks it is absolutely crucial?

I am looking at a bunch of recent drops i have that are basically same ilvl. 

I run castigator and all of the pieces i want to swap in, will give me loads more crit, but drop my haste from 20% down to 16%.

how detrimental do you think this will be if i make the change? my crit will sit at almost 40% up from 32%.

Thanks in advance,

 

Timmo

do understand things in formal guides are aimed at absolute top dps and min max players, etc.

the short is more haste leads to less downtime and a more well flowing rotation, so around 18% really is the soft cap, you can do fine below it, it just feels much better at 18. In your case with the huge increase in crit, you will be fine at 16.

Thanks for the input guys, appreciate it!

I don't think 20% haste is really needed, but it seems to be the cutoff point where haste starts to lower in value compared to the other stats. 20% haste also seem to be the point where the global cooldown and playspeed feels "right". I notice a significant difference in "how it feels" going from 16% to 20% haste.

you are correct, haste suffers horrific diminishing returns, and 20% is more or less the cap of where you want to be, the example we can see with this is soul reaper we get 21% haste bonus and you barely have time to push your buttons. so 20% does give the best feel I agree but its really a min max priority setting nothing more. It's a good guideline but not mandate.

Where are you guys getting the 20% number from? Is this just personal experience or is it listed in a guide somewhere? Thanks!

Theorycrafting, sims, and a buttload of playtime. Who do you think writes the guides? Blizzord certainly doesn't, its dedicated players who sit there running thousands of iterations of sims and staring at logs until your eyes bleed :D

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time (CT)
      CURRENT PROGRESSION: 8/8N, 6/8H
      iLVL REQUIREMENT: 350+
       
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING
      Tank Healer DPS ABOUT US
      Currently looking for skilled and laid back raiders for Heroic and eventually Mythic Uldir.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out.
      Players wanting just Mythic+ and a casual experience (no raiding) are welcomed!
      Fun guild events are scheduled every Saturday!
      TLDR; we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BfA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      - Mythic+ or Casual: Add me on Battle.net or whisper me in-game for an invite.
      - Raiders: Add me on Battle.net and fill out our app.
      Start the app here!

      Looking for a casually serious progression guild? Hordeland Security could be your new home! We started at launch, and have raided on Blackhand, Baelgun, and now Turalyon. 

      We currently raid on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00- 9:15 Central Time. We understand that no one has an unlimited amount of time to play. We raid with a goal oriented focus, to achieve AotC in current content and then progress into Mythic. We also have a few that pvp, a few more that push M+'s, and we've been known do a few mog/achievement runs.
      Interested? Drop us a line!

      Hi everyone,

      We are a guild that transferred from Alexstrasza to join the progression raiding scene as that server is very low population now. We are currently 8/8N and 4/8H uldir, and looking to move into heroics soon and mythic just after. 

      We do more than just raid, we love to do keys, transmog runs, and even some PvP. We have a large range of players from several walks of life and have a unique and fun atmosphere, we are friendly and love helping people. 

      We are looking for a few more members for our Sunday/Monday 5-8pm PST, and our tue/third 5-8pm PST. If anyone is interested in raid leading that will work too.

      We are primarily east coast based but have a plethora of players that are on at all times of day.

      Main needs for our raid team:
      ranged dps
      Healers
      Exceptional players

      Of course all players as welcome as we do other guild activities such as world PVP, keys, xmog and other social activities.

      So come join this very active guild and we hope to hear from you.

      If you would like more information please add my btag at Kaatra#5865.

      I look forward to hearing from all of you.
