So,

Which trinket should I be using (obviously arms warriors are not concerned with iLvl because Mastery is desired over strength.

I have the 820 iLvl trinket from a timewarped dungeon and that with heroism, Battle Cry, Potion, trinket use, could provide an extreme amount of dps burst which is also on a 1.5m CD. It seems like an obvious choice but I wanted to hear any thoughts or opinions that people have since I'll be losing 500+ static mastery. Also, the use effect gives around 20-24% increased damage during colossus smash. 

Thoughts?...

Good morning, Nashar;

I'd be careful with this assumption. While Mastery is desired and does have a higher stat weight than strength, you do not want to completely throw out strength all together. If the item level gap is significant or the strength value is significant, it can be better than a piece with mastery.

In your specific case the first comparison would be the consideration of trading 545 Mastery for 933 Strength.

Without going much further into the math, as it can be very boring to some people, I'll put your answer straight forward: use the latest version of SimulationCraft to see which trinket will theoretically pull out more numbers for you. My guess, just looking at the two, is that Mark of Khardros will be better.

The numbers don't bore me at all in fact I find it very interesting. But, I will run a SimulationCraft on it. My thought process was that I'm not only trading +545 mastery for +933 strength, I'm able to pop the 4100 mastery on a 1.5min cooldown during heroism, Battle Cry, and Avatar. That increase in mastery is 23% more damage. Hopefully SimulationCraft will take this into account. During a short fight of Halls of Valor I pulled 550k dps for 554 iLvl. As far as the other higher iLvl gear that I have in the bank for getting into Mythic Dungeon groups I'll have to run the sim.

It's great that Mark's cooldown lines up with Avatar, though its duration is 5 seconds shorter. It is also dependent on having perfect uptime on CS during the duration, and you're only going to have Warbreaker for every other use in case it all goes awry. If you only get 8 seconds out of the 15 with the CS debuff up then you've lost an awful lot of your damage. If you use this trinket, you're probably going to want to save Warbreaker to use with your Avatar rotation.

      1. can i do comparable ( to subtlety ) damage as assasination rogue? what is difference in %?
      2. shadowcraft shows me that subterfuge is 25k dps more than nightstalker, is it real?
      3. simcraft shows me, that my dps now as assasination is 25-30k less than subtlety ( 55 and 59 artifact level ), will it be the same gap when i get 59 assa artifact, or subtlety damage is always higher?
