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.

      Hey everyone,
      So, I think my problem is my gear as I have been trying to rack my brain on why my dps is not that great in raids. Some of it I admit is probably not sticking 100% to my rotation, but any help/suggestions would definitely be appreciated.
      You can find the analyzer for the most recent log here: https://wowanalyzer.com/report/4K3dCR86gfMv2Njt/2-LFR+Antoran+High+Command/Darkbriar
       
      Thanks in advance! 😎

      SERVER: Illidan
      RAID TIMES: Fridays & Sundays 10pm - 1am Server Time.
      PROGRESSION: 2/11M
      CURRENTLY RECRUITING*
      Tank All DPS (Healer offspec preferred but not required) Possibly accepting other roles! ABOUT US
      Now recruiting for BFA!
      Currently looking for skilled and laid back Tank & DPS for the upcoming expansion.
      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.) 
      SCHEDULE UNTIL BFA**
      Fridays currently mandatory for core raiders for a partial Heroic clear.
      Sundays reserved for non-mandatory misc WoW activities (M+, leveling alts for BFA etc.) or other non-WoW related events.
      If ilvl is high enough, you can join for Friday (950+) and Sunday on any character, not just the one you want to play in BFA.
                *The class you play in BFA can be different from what you play now; we will be flexible until the expansion hits.
                **Schedule subject to changes.
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      Make sure to add me on Battle.net and/or fill out our short 6 question app to join us. We look forward to speaking with you!
      Start the app here!

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/XRqCaL6jFVpW9MnG#fight=5&type=summary&source=23&view=events
      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.
