Looking for help (Mist-Weaver)

5 posts in this topic

So I am currently behind I know but I'm looking to improve my healing for heroic and future mythic progression. However, the one thing that's eluding me so far is stat weights and things like that. I'm currently 7/7N 2/7H. I feel my stats are messed up I know for a fact I have to much haste. How do I go about finding which are the best stats for MW monks.  Ask Mr robot doesn't help to much and simcraft doesn't support healer simulations. My only other option is to ask around. Thank's for the help ahead of time.

After searching the web for BiS, stats etc etc etc all I've found it so far is that Mastery, dispite what every guide say, is the best stat. Haste is "useless" as it doesnt differ much. Enchant all the gear with versatility. I've also learned that Mark of the ancient priestess doesnt trigger with healing so I cant say thats a good option. Other than that, im clueless. I'm currently 26%/17%/247%/7% (crit, haste, mastery, versatility) @ 870ilvl and it works as it should I suppose.

There's a stat weight done by a guy named Geodew that I can link you here. There's also questions that people have asked him and his responses in the thread if you're interested: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/1911741-GUIDE-SUPPLEMENT-Geodew-s-Mistweaver-Stat-Weights-7-0

That said, mastery is a great stat to have in 5 mans. The lack of heavy AoE and emphasis on Enveloping Mist makes it a really good stat to have. However, mastery isn't that useful in raids because of a few reasons. The first is that there's a lot more emphasis on mana conservation. Versatility and critical strike continue to be useful after the cast has been complete, benefitting Essence Font, Enveloping Mist and Renewing Mist, which takes up quite a lot of our healing. Mastery, however, requires mana every time you want to use it (Sheilun is an exception, but you're only going to get a cast of that every 50+ seconds because it doesn't heal enough without 5 or more stacks). Additionally, mastery doesn't actually proc off of any of our AoE spells. While Essence Font gives us double effectiveness on our mastery, we still have to spend mana to get that effectiveness, which can lead to going OOM. Crit and versatility gives us better AoE heals, and makes our expensive AoE spells more mana efficient.

Haste isn't picked up for raw thoroughput, and therefore the usefulness of the stat varies upon if you are above or below the mana cap for a fight. The mana cap is the point that you can freely spam the correct spell for the situation and never run out of mana until the end of the fight. In other words, being on the mana cap means getting to 0 mana when the boss dies. While the mana cap changes between bosses, difficulties and attempts, if you are above the mana cap (Not running OOM by the end of the fight), you don't need to be as efficient with your spells, and can therefore go for more raw thoroughput. Haste allows us to get more raw thoroughput, as we get our spells out faster. In this case, haste gains a lot of stat weight, as we are gaining more healing without being punished for reduced efficiency. Of course, haste loses a lot of this weight when below the mana cap (Going OOM before the end of the fight) because we need more efficiency in that case. Mastery gains a bit more weight when below the mana cap, but mastery is less consistent with it's healing, and so we don't give it as much weight when below the mana cap as we do for haste when above the mana cap.

Your haste is only a problem if you are going OOM too quickly. You can reduce this problem by getting more efficient with your spells and getting the most out of each spell. However, if you are finding that you are still going OOM, perhaps you need to get more crit or versatility into your gear. However, mastery costs too much mana to be effective compared to crit or versatility.

I was unable to read the link you attached Rush31 but I do agree that Crit and Vers are better than Mastery. I completely changed all my gear to focus mastery>vers>crit>haste and I feel my heals are so much weaker than when I was Crit>vers>haste>mast. So now I am back to should I go back to being crit>vers>haste>mast or trying to stick it out with mastery....

If you can copy paste the stat weights here I would greatly appreciate it since the link would not work for me :(!

 

 

Before I was 23.57%, 14.91%, 221.20%, 7.55% (Crit, haste, Mast, Vers)...

Now 17%, 10%, 352%, 4% (Crit, haste, Mast, Vers)...

Ok, here's the stats pulled from the spreadsheet:

For 5 man dungeons:

Haste (Above mana cap): 5.08
Intellect: 2.74
Versatility: 2.21
Crit: 2.15
Mastery: 3.21
Haste (Below mana Cap): 2.11

For raids:

Haste (Above Mana Cap): 5.08
Intellect: 2.74
Versatility: 2.26
Crit: 2.15
Mastery: 1.26

EDIT: I'll also note that versatility gets better the more healers you have (The damage reduction is basically extra healing, and having more people makes reducing the damage all the more important)

      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!

      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:

      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, Im having shoulders with 925 ilevel, mastery and verstality, but also I do have shoulders 915 ilevel, haste and avoidance.

      Whats better, lower item level but with best stats (haste/avoidance), or higher item level but with mastery and versa ?? 

      In overall, is it better to aim for "best" stats or just push item level first?

      Question regarding WW stat priority - is there ever a point where I'll want to choose something like Vers or Haste over Mastery or Crit, in a single-target situation? (I understand that Haste > Crit in multi-target)
      I'm still a little new to WW in Legion, here's a link to my character if that helps at all. At the moment I'm sitting at 52% Mastery and 47% Crit, since I'm still missing 1 tier piece to complete my 4-set. Tier will definitely change up my stats, but with such high Crit I've been wondering if Legion has some sort of soft cap on stats, especially this late in the expansion, or if there are certain percentages where I'll want to start taking other stats?...
      Thanks.
