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.

      <Exo> is an old guild from Dragonblight which transferred to Stormrage in search of mythic raiders. We are a guild full of experienced raiders always looking to expand our roster. 
      We are not a world first guild nor do we aim to be. Our primary goal is to get loot and have a good time, however this still means on progression nights we do expect you to show up, put on your serious face, and kill some *filtered*.
      Our raids are on 3 nights a week; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9pm-12 Server Time (EST). The Monday raids are optional farm/alt nights (Normal/Heroic) with Tuesday/Wednesday being mandatory progression nights.
      Currently we are accepting applications for any role, off specs are always a welcome addition but not required. Performance and skill will be looked at above gear, experience, or class.
      We do not have a minimum item level required to join our raid team, however we will require you to catch up in our Monday farm-runs up until you are at a mythic level.
      If you have any questions or are interested in joining or trialing with us please add Pasha#1800, Java#1849 or Bushido#1988 on bnet to talk with an officer.

      I came to Icy Veins to setup my Elemental Shaman only to find your Talent setup does not match what is offered in the game presently.  Below I have listed what I see in my current in-game talent setup and bolded those items that do not match your setup at all.
      Current in-game Talents listed:                                                   Your Listing:                      
      15 Exposed Elements Echo of the Elements Elemental Blast               Earthen Rage 30 Aftershock Master of Elements Totem Mastery       Call the Thunder 45 Spirit Wolf Earth Shield Static Charge         60 High Voltage Storm Elemental Liquid Magma Totem       Master of the Elements 75 Nature's Guardian Ancestral Guidance Wind Rush Totem         90 Earthen Rage Primal Elementalist Icefury       Surge of Power 100 Unlimited Power Stormkeeper Ascendance         I thought someone here should know about these differences because it appears there has been no update recently to your setup.   I know that I personally would appreciate an update so that I can adjust my in-game setup to work better.
