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 ...

Hello, 

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.

      Raiders must know their class and role. 
      Potential raiders must have been gearing for the content.
      Drama Queens and Trolls need not apply. 
      Our raid schedule is:
      Tuesday - Thursday
      8PM - 11PM CST
      We are looking for the following classes/specs, but will consider any good and dedicated players.

      Hey everyone,
      So, I think my problem is my gear as I have been trying to rack my brain on why my dps is not that great in raids. Some of it I admit is probably not sticking 100% to my rotation, but any help/suggestions would definitely be appreciated.
      You can find the analyzer for the most recent log here: https://wowanalyzer.com/report/4K3dCR86gfMv2Njt/2-LFR+Antoran+High+Command/Darkbriar
       
      Thanks in advance! 😎

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      PROGRESSION: 2/11M
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING*
      Tank All DPS (Healer offspec preferred but not required) Possibly accepting other roles! ABOUT US
      Now recruiting for BFA!
      Currently looking for skilled and laid back Tank & DPS for the upcoming expansion.
      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. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, 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.) 
      SCHEDULE UNTIL BFA**
      Fridays currently mandatory for core raiders for a partial Heroic clear.
      Sundays reserved for non-mandatory misc WoW activities (M+, leveling alts for BFA etc.) or other non-WoW related events.
      If ilvl is high enough, you can join for Friday (950+) and Sunday on any character, not just the one you want to play in BFA.
                *The class you play in BFA can be different from what you play now; we will be flexible until the expansion hits.
                **Schedule subject to changes.
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and/or fill out our short 6 question app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!
