Hi,

I just wanted to ask about exact stat priority. Should I just get as much versa as I can?

Second thing is, what is the weight of every stat for Pawn Addon?

Armory (might be helpful) http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/defias-brotherhood/Prekist/advanced

I wouldn't even ask, but i played with ~25% CS/H, Icecap/Avalanche , Runic Attenuation and Obliteration for a day now and its pretty damn good.

Yeah seriously, i mean, in the guide they have up it says versatility over all, i find that hard to believe.

I mean, is it really our primary stat over haste and crit? Do we just straight drop crit and haste and go versatility? No soft caps for crit or haste BEFORE going versatility? what should our haste and crit look like before we start valuing versatility as our main stat?

So, frost stats are a horrible mess right now. In short for the most accurate weights you have to self sim yourself. Why? Mastery doesn't help obliterate. Crit was more beneficial to frostscythe builds and required there. Using runic attenuation you end up borderline GCD capped which starts to devalue haste. The only stat that seems to benefit everything is versatility. So, once you get any new piece of gear with varied stats, it muks up the calculations. 

So, the most technical answer is there is no answer that will work for all. Now there was a guideline that was proposed by a mad hamster that was 25/25 haste crit. Running self sims and farting around, it works well, however, the 25 haste is a bit much. I don't see huge differences between 20 and 25% and thats due to diminishing return walls. So, the bar I have set for myself is 20% haste, 25% crit, then stack versatility from there. Crit is there to fish out hard critting rime howling blasts, and the hope that SF will Crit. Now, these are my own characters numbers, they may not work 100% for you, but this is the guideline i'm using. It is the middle ground between what self sims are saying and what play testing is saying. 

So the technical answer is you must self sim, the personal answer to at least give you a starting point, you have. The choice of which to follow is yours.

There's one problem with stacking too much haste, too: you, human, has to react fast enough for it to be valuable. In a Mythic or Raid situation where you have to take care of many other factors, this may not always be possible.

      Hi everyone. I just killed HC Varimathras and I was surprised by my low damage. There was not second time warp because we used the first one at 20% HP but I think I should get higher numbers. Can anyone tell me what did I do wrong? Was it really only in TW? I do not think so :/.

      Anybody can help with this? I'm using simcraft to get the stat priority for my MM's gear but it is giving me crazy results, not sure why. Agility=83.13, Ap=80.24, CritRating=0.83, HasteRating=46.84, MasteryRating=1.04, Versatility=217.72, Dps=297.72
      According to stat priority lists, such as the icy veins one, mastery should be the predominant stat. Now I understand that it can change depending on gear and other things, but this much???
      I've attached a screenshot wit the settings in simcraft, in case it helps.
      Can anybody tell me what I'm doing wrong? Sorry if it's a noob question.
      Cheers!

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.
