Crit v Haste

6 posts in this topic

From what I've seen on stat weights, crit has almost caught up with haste in 7.1.5. Would it be close to viable to go Mastery, Crit, Haste if you get One with the Pack? In possible theory that would mean more dire beast which helps focus, stomp dmg, and crit damage, I'd just imagine it would take a lot of crit to make it close to viable.

One with the pack is only viable if you have legendary shoulders. At which point crit is more valuable than haste anyway. 

Unless you have those shoulders stick to your own sim weights and if you prefer, just aim for the items with higher mastery regardless of the crit/haste. 

Haste is what helps you generate the most focus anyway st the moment, the more haste the faster your focus restores.

I would not recommend it. Unless you can already cast Kill Command 6 times during any Bestial Wrath (without aspect of the wild or Bloodlust), Haste is still better than Crit.

The stat weights are not constant (because stats are additive with themselves but multiplicative with each other), the guide is only a generic placeholder. Stats also face diminishing returns. If you already have a very high mastery, adding more mastery brings a smaller increase of damage per point. So it only makes sense to get crit once both mastery and haste are high.

By the way, Haste also affects the cooldown of Kill Command and Dire Beast, so don't think it's only the focus regen.

 

Also, while One With the Pack might seem nice (especially with the Mantle of Command), Blink Strikes doubles the damage from Beast Cleave, and is by far the best choice for any fight that has significant AoE.

Jesus 7 already?! Grats mate, hope the shoulders serve you well. Not worth stacking crit outside of gear though, mastery is still the most important AoE stat, so keep your enchants and food all mastery based. Unless you're trying to go for like rank 1 parses on Trill or something haha. 

Tbh here I am complaining having 3 legendaries and wanting the shoulders so bad but to hear you have 7 and hadn't even gotten the belt yet makes me feel slightly less ungrateful hahaha.

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      CURRENT PROGRESSION: 8/8N, 5/8H
       
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING (340+ ilvl)
      Healer DPS ABOUT US
      Currently looking for a skilled and laid back Healer & DPS for Heroic and eventually Mythic Uldir.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BfA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and fill out our app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!

      Looking for a casually serious progression guild? Hordeland Security could be your new home! We started at launch, and have raided on Blackhand, Baelgun, and now Turalyon. 

      We currently raid on Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00- 9:15 Central Time. We understand that no one has an unlimited amount of time to play. We raid with a goal oriented focus, to achieve AotC in current content and then progress into Mythic. We also have a few that pvp, a few more that push M+'s, and we've been known do a few mog/achievement runs.
      Interested? Drop us a line!
      Raid Lead - Keelhaul (Herve#1737)

      I'm trying to create a macro that will allow me to use Spirit Mend with the typical focus/mouseover modifiers but also allow me to use Exhilaration with a key modifier and can't seem to make all of this work together. Here's what I have but it's acting like the ALT modifier isn't even there.
      #showtooltip /cast [mod:alt][@mouseover,help,nodead][@focus,help,nodead][@player]Spirit Mend; Exhilaration Thank you in advance for any help!

      Hi everyone,

      We are a guild that transferred from Alexstrasza to join the progression raiding scene as that server is very low population now. We are currently 8/8N and 4/8H uldir, and looking to move into heroics soon and mythic just after. 

      We do more than just raid, we love to do keys, transmog runs, and even some PvP. We have a large range of players from several walks of life and have a unique and fun atmosphere, we are friendly and love helping people. 

      We are looking for a few more members for our Sunday/Monday 5-8pm PST, and our tue/third 5-8pm PST. If anyone is interested in raid leading that will work too.

      We are primarily east coast based but have a plethora of players that are on at all times of day.

      Main needs for our raid team:
      ranged dps
      Healers
      Exceptional players

      Of course all players as welcome as we do other guild activities such as world PVP, keys, xmog and other social activities.

      So come join this very active guild and we hope to hear from you.

      If you would like more information please add my btag at Kaatra#5865.

      I look forward to hearing from all of you.
