Icy Veins showing wrong stat priority for Prot Paladin?

I have seen recently that Icy Veins changed the Protection Paladin stat priorities with the release of 7.1. I wanted to do my own research on it so downloaded the latest build of Simcraft  SimcSetup-710-01-Win64.exe , dated 2016-10-29 05:41, and run a tank based sim. No matter what settings I changed I could not replicate Icy Veins findings for their stat priorities of:

  1. Haste;
  2. Versatility;
  3. Mastery;
  4. Critical Strike.

Further more as they do not post a pawn string or show weights it is also hard to see how much one stat is better than another.

Anyhow I have run many many sims on this and the result I get is shown in the attached image. I set it to run 25000 sims with a patchwork fight using T19H. Even if I change it to T19M it does not really change the results.
 

As you can see it ranks Crit slightly above Mastery, but more or less equal, so why does Icy Veins say that Master is above Crit.

Can anyone shed some light on this for me so I know I am gearing correctly. What do I believe?

Addition - I have run it on another Prot Paladin that has 888 gear and get the priorities of:

Sta > Vers > Str ~= Crit ~= Mastery ~= Haste

What is going on, am I doing something wrong or is it that there is no one glove fits all stat order. Maybe he has enough Mastery and Haste already so it only recomends Versitility as a good stat now. I am very confused.

At this point in Prot Paladin, I've really given up on listening to anyone. All Prot blogs, theory crafters, and whatnot are gone (or haven't been updated in a year) Every website says something different, and every response is based off opinion (for reasons stated).

I have simply ignored it and ran: Haste > Vers > mastery > Crit

Methodology being:

Haste keeps my SotR and self healing going. 

Vers makes healing stronger, hits lighter, (and small effect of damage output for pushing raid damage)

Mastery for stronger blocks and more reduction on SotR

 

Everything else (stamina, Crit) seem so insignificant via needing something like 7% crit for 1% of SotR uptime; and in 860 gear with no stam trinkets, carrying 3 million health. They just go along with Blizzard's terrible gearing system. Too lazy to make tanking gear, too lazy to make DPS gear, so "same gear for all". As we sift through and hand out gear with crit because it's truly worthless for survivability. I could be 870GS right now but instead i'm sitting at 860'ish and far more tanky because I itemized over item leveled. 

 

I am sitting as the highest ranked Prot Paladin on my joined-servers and 7th overall tank. I just honestly gave up listening to these posts of 1 or 2 replies before they get dumped to page two never to be seen again. :P

Just my 2 cents.

I agree with you I think. I too am going Haste > Vers > mastery > Crit too with great success. I think nowadays it is a case of getting the right spec gear vs ilvl to get a balanced gear set. Blizzard seem to like this one set of gear fits all specs system that clearly does not work. It is always better to go for stats over ilvl, that is for sure. I was just hoping to understand how these priorities that Icy Veins come up with are generated, but I guess everyone does it a bit differently since like you say there are so many different opinions on the subject.

I agree on most of what Westy just said, but my priority is a little different:

ilvl > Haste >> Vers > Whatever

ilvl gives us more stamina, which helps during the "squishy phases" (where SotR is not up)
It might sound a little weird, but it also increases our healing from LotP, which is not bad.
Also i feel, we got like the smalles hp pool compared to other tanks since BC, so we really just need it :-/
(that really embarases me the most in this addon, even with my current GS of 876)

Also keep in mind, that haste and vers do not suffer from diminishing returns.
And since there are no lucky paladins, you'll have enough crit and mastery on your gear anyway.

PS: We got a Legion Forum on maintankadin now, so... you might use it xD

Without Seraphim, the Goal would be something between 40 and 50% for a 100% SotR Uptime.
With Seraphim this is even higher... the sky is our limit :)

      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.

      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?

      Hi everyone,
      I, like many others, are trying to maximize DPS for their respective classes, mine in particular being ret paladin.
      In general, it seems like there are several sources of information for dps for each class.
      Icy Veins Mr Robot Raidbots (Simulation Craft) Warcraft Logs Each with its own set of criteria as to what determines high dps. And I find inconsistency when bouncing between the different sources. I want to understand what am I missing when it comes to each. I will lay out what I currently understand, and would like some feedback as to what I may not be considering in each as well as some advice as to what other options I could be exploring (resources) to further the insight into whats applicable for my current state.
      Icy Veins
      For Icy Veins, in particular, the stat weights, are mostly vaguely determined. From the ret guide:
       
      If I am reading this right, its Mastery >= Haste > Ver >= Crit = Str
      Mr Robot
      I use the addOn and I subscribe for the Best In Bags function. When I plug in my information in, the site recommends that I go with my 2pce t20 and balance around my legendaries with a focus on haste pieces (haste gems are emphasized).
      https://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/simulator/report/a42136294c7f40b2b7ee78023306d786
      Stat weights as listed in MrRobot:
      MrRobot Stat Weights
      From what I am seeing, Crit is most emphasized, and the one crit gem + ring crit enchants were originally recommended by MrRobot here. Also another notable thing here is haste being way behind crit's potential.
      RaidBots (Simc)
      For RaidBots, I use the addOn, and play around with various items I hoard, and use the stat weights functions. Generally the feedback I get here are to stick with the current gem setup and with regards to stat weights, emphasize at my current setup with crit. It also says I should drop some of my high ilvl pieces (935 head, and 960 chest) for 4pce (915 head, lfr 890 chest)
      Gear simc:
      https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/d3Qbkf6nqpoP4bxQ9YB2m
      Stat Weights:
      https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/6NkVYwEaTW26FxD4wBwey4
      Vers -> crit -> mastery -> haste -> str
      (versitality first?)
      Warcraft Logs
      I mostly use Warcraft Logs to check what the top dps players (ret pallys) are hitting and what setups are they running. I don't want to specifically link player armories in here, but upon some investigation, you'll find most are just stacking haste
      ---
      I understand stat weights are relative, however it seems like everyone has different priorities, one says mastery, another vers, another crit, another haste?
      Help me understand.
      Thanks,
      Exploit

      Hi, several players told me, that my warrior is not having enough HP as he should with current item level.
      Here is the link to armory
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/burning-legion/wienkszy

      How can I push my HP higher, is there any way I can increase it ?  Trinkets, relics, items. Am I  missing something ?
