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

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some *filtered*.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are accepting applications for any role, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.

      I came to Icy Veins to setup my Elemental Shaman only to find your Talent setup does not match what is offered in the game presently.  Below I have listed what I see in my current in-game talent setup and bolded those items that do not match your setup at all.
      Current in-game Talents listed:                                                   Your Listing:                      
      15 Exposed Elements Echo of the Elements Elemental Blast               Earthen Rage 30 Aftershock Master of Elements Totem Mastery       Call the Thunder 45 Spirit Wolf Earth Shield Static Charge         60 High Voltage Storm Elemental Liquid Magma Totem       Master of the Elements 75 Nature's Guardian Ancestral Guidance Wind Rush Totem         90 Earthen Rage Primal Elementalist Icefury       Surge of Power 100 Unlimited Power Stormkeeper Ascendance         I thought someone here should know about these differences because it appears there has been no update recently to your setup.   I know that I personally would appreciate an update so that I can adjust my in-game setup to work better.

      Currently looking for skilled semi-hardcore raiders for Mythic Uldir and the next raid tier.
      Booty Pirates is a semi-hardcore, 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.

      TLDR; we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
