Resto Trinkets.

7 posts in this topic

Hey guys, had a sick lootday today... I ended up getting 3 upgrades having a hard time to decide which two to use.

 

I've got:
http://www.wowhead.com/item=139330/heightened-senses ilvl 880
http://www.wowhead.com/item=137419/chrono-shard ilvl 880

and http://www.wowhead.com/item=138222/vial-of-nightmare-fog ilvl 885

I've read that Chrono Shard has weak procc chance, but the stats are as right as they get..

But then again the procc heal from Nightmare is amazing.

Any suggestions or calculations out there?

Thanks!

Omg, grats with the amazing trinkets!

I don't know who wrote that Chrono Shard has a weak proc chance - it's always has around 30% uptime, you can easily see this in logs.

Regarding your question, I'd keep one slot for the Vial pretty much always, and would maybe swap between Senses in raid and Shard in M+. They are equal enough in performance but Shard's speed buff in high M+ is awesome.

Maybe I would try and play around with Shard+Senses in one raid and Vial+Senses in another, to see in logs how it affects resto druid HoT ticks but this is not an advise, I just find it very interesting for min/maxing in different fights.

That certainly is a shiny set of trinkets!

Just to give you some idea about average numbers logged yesterday on 6 heroic bosses (excluding Nythendra, we forgot about the logs):

  • Chrono Shard (ilvl 445 only) - average 19,52% uptime (min 11,35 - max 36,49%); doesn't seem low and haste is awesome
  • Vial of Nightmare Fog (ilvl 885) - average 4,56% (min 3,54 - max 5,50%) healing done, I like it mostly because both disciple priest and holy pala don't have their mighty absorbs anymore (well, priest does have some, but PW:Shield is rather weak this expansion), so any damage that can be absorbed may as well save someone's life

From my experience Hightened Senses doesn't proc that well (I've had around 14% average uptime few weeks back), nonetheless proc is great and it might be dependant on personal playstyle (direct healing vs HoT's ratio), thus having it with nice ilvl is certainly worth testing.

That's more than alright, looks very good indeed considering the main stat proc is great, but unfortunately it didn't look so well for resto druids last time I've checked.

I haven't tested it thoroughly, but I guess it's because it doesn't seem to proc from ticks of hots (or very rarely), while Chrono Shard does.

This is really weird because  when I just make a search in WCL for resto druids with this trinket, the proc rate is the same or even betetr than mine. Maybe it has something to do with the raid size in your case (very small)?

Thanks for the reply guys! 

Seems the procc is all right in other words. I'll probably do so that I use it for Myth+ just because of the speed boost ( despite of not having any mobility problems as druid of course :P )

My Vial heals about 3-6% depending on fights of course, so it seems even tho it's just crit and the procc it carries quite a lot, especially in raid environments where you hot the hell out of everything.

And the Hightened Senses proccs pretty well for me, at least what I've noticed. Seems most top tier druids use it, but it is probably because of the ilvl advantage I guess. The procc is crazy giving 4500 int (and the haste ofc!), so I always try to time it with my Innervate if possible, reapply an aoe mushroom and full hot the tanks obv.

      I know gear values are fluid etc, but I'm having a hard time getting my head around this one;
      Short form: Simcraft is showing an 880 Urn and 885 Arcanogolem as being substantially (as in 50k+) better than an 880 Convergence and 880 Frond. I get the Frond being hard to sim reliably, but that just can't be right,  Anyone else had issues with simming CoF?

      Hey guys and gals. I'm fairly new to assassination, my rogue was originally a SUB rogue, for legion I changed to Outlaw, and finally Assassination. I've been raiding now with it for a good couple of months with my current spec, I've tried to follow the icy veins guide as close as I can, when it comes to BIS, rotation, etc.  I'm struggling to get the numbers, I'm supposed to be getting according to my gear level. 
      http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/fizzcrank/Atreyiu/simple
      I am aware I don't have all my BIS, but I'm working on it. My guild is currently doing NH Heroic, and so far we are 6 bosses in. And most of the pieces I need are in the later bosses, so far we haven't been able to progress that far.
      according to warcraftlogs, my dps is in the very low end of the spectrum. and I agree, there is another rogue in my guild that puts out almost 35% more dps than I do, and he is at 898 right now.
      these are my logs
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/22393791/latest/
       
      these are the logs for my guildee, that whoops my butt in dps every time (he is a really cool dude and has tried to help me, but because of his and my work schedule I only get to talk to him during raid times)
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/17154275/latest/
       
      Also my rotation for single target goes as follows: Garrote-mutilate-rupture(5point)--mutilate-mutilate(5point)-envenom-kingsbane--vendetta--garrote(keeping it up)-mutilate-mutilate-vanish-rupture---rinse and repeat.
       
      So if you guys have any advice, on areas I could improve. I would greatly appreciate it.

      Just trying to see why im doing slow low of heals. I come last in the raid, shaman and priest coming ahead of me and most fights im barely able to push and hold 300K in heals. on the rare chance i push higher but only on the short fights. Any help would be nice so i dont feel like im letting down my raid. 
      Here is my amory link http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/bloodhoof/Kibea/simple
      A few logs between, EN and Nighthold

      http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-axscgxqmashw3pph/sum/healingDone/
       
      The rotation im using is
      Tanks: ironbark+ward+life+rejv or regrowth
      raid: Wild+ essence or flourish
      high dmg: inn+tree+trang+Wild+ essence or flourish
      with efflorescence being put down when ever its up.

      So I got an ilvl 900 Windscar Whetstone for the weekly (~1125 mastery, on-use AOE effect) that is simming a bit higher than the 880 elemental foci I had... not sure I buy it.  Definitely a monster on trash, but has anyone had much luck with it on bosses?  Not wild about the total lack of agi.
      On those lines, would it be affected by the crit% boost on the legendary shoulders?  Vendetta?
