How much haste is enough for Demon Blades ?

Hi, Does anyone of you know how much haste is enough for demon blades to proc properly ? I'm actually at 20% (crit 40% mast 20%) I can switch to 50% crit but I will have 6% haste. 

There is now a debate whether the proc chance of demon blades during GCD is actually a buff or a nerf, if anyone could bring opinion on that too it would be great.


thank you.

As far as I know haste should have nothing to do with Demon Blades proccing.  It can shorten GCD though which is nice.  Currently I have 42% crit and 18% haste.  With my trinket procs, it ends up being a *lot* of haste.  Is it optimal?  No.  Versatility would be good.  But hey, it's not like you go shop for your gear picking out stats, you get what you get.  Unless it's really close, I tend to go with ilvl on gear.  But, Demon Blades should work just fine with lower haste.  Personally I prefer at least 8 - 10% haste minimum, but I go with what I have at the time. 

The change to Demon Blades and GCD is definitely a buff.   A lot more usable fury without as much overcapping.  I think it also makes that legendary ring even stronger, since before a lot of the extra fury just went to overcap the way it procced.

IIRC Demon Blades has a flat 75% proc rate, so Haste does affect Fury generation through it, as it also affects Fury generation via Demon's Bite (shortened GCD).

I'd love to have a solid general answer for you, but the question is complex enough that I can't break it down easily. We also generate more Fury from crits on Demon Blades and on Chaos Strike, which is part of why Crit is so good as a secondary stat for us. Like Zilthy, I prefer to have a minimum amount of Haste to reduce GCD / add consistency to Fury generation, but I don't have a hard number. In practice I make gear tradeoffs based on up-to-date stat weights from Simulationcraft. It's the most effective way to figure out what makes sense without having to go into a lot (A LOT) of math.

Thank you for the answers, I'm trying to figure out this with testing on actual raid bosses to see the difference, I have traded some haste for crit (with better ilvl gear), it does not seem to affect much my fury regeneration, with a dps gain ...

Critical chance > Haste. So if you can have 50% crit instead of 40% crit, go for it! Don't pay as much attention to the haste. It is important but critical hitting is prio.

      Hi everyone! This is my first time playing endgame content, thanks to some veteran friends who invited me to play with them. I started with a Fury Warrior, and now that I feel comfortable, I started logging the runs. 

      Here is a part of Antorus Normal ( I accidentaly deleted the file later which included the rest of the bosses :( ) 

      Would anyone please take a look at it to see where I have room for improvement (probably everything) and how can I tackle those issues?

      PD: Im lacking one of the BiS leggos, and ever since I have the Convergance of Fates trinket, I lost my rotation, cant seem to find when to fire each ability now.

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which semi-recently 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 shit.
      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 in need of any competent DPS, 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.
