High Mastery or Hard Cap Haste

6 posts in this topic

Good Morning,

 

I have been trying to theorycraft the point hard cap haste outweighs high mastery.

I'm currently copying two druids who are in top end raiding guilds. One is hard cap haste the other is high mastery (3028 haste) build, both these druids are raiding 25man heroic content. 

 

I am raiding 10man heroic and i'm currently full mastery build. My gear is not currently capable of reaching hard cap haste but with two or three pieces (or 5.4 pieces) i'll easily be able to reach it.

 

So my question is, is it worth pushing for hard cap haste before 5.4? Would it be worth hard cap WHEN 5.4 is out? or Would it be more beneficial to get more mastery?

 

Character Armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/draenor/Ultimatte/advanced

 

Hard cap = 13,163. 37.52%.

 

Many thanks!

I think the hard haste cap would be better in 25's pre 5.4. Spamming Rejuv on multiple targets quickly really adds up. In 10 man I would favor mastery because of the more single target heals performed, as well as the lessened number of bodies to keep healthy.

Once 5.4 hits, I think you'll accrue the gear to get that hard cap and still have enough mastery to do fine in 10's, but I would still presume it's more of a 25m build and having intense mastery would suit you more as a 10 man raider.

I was thinking of getting a happy medium for 5.4. The next viable haste cap would be 6,652 (wild growth 9th tick). And that'll still leave me with a decent amount of mastery while having the benefit of the extra haste for meta gem procs and ofc the wild growth extra tick.

I think it will depend more on play style of you and your fellow healer(s).

 

a you suppose to be the spike damage healer, or the efficient heal over time/top ppl off.  It is not always the best build is the best for YOUR raid comp. (like having 1 healer do one build and the other healer do a different build - and then each have different tasks)

Would say the first would be the mastery build, second would be haste.

 

Now not sure how Genesis (new 5.4 placing rejuv on crack) is going to affect this - as it can play with the haste caps actual effectiveness if you use it for every spike dmg. (can see it going either way, that the harder ticks are better, or that the extra tick will make a huge difference - need more than napkin math for that calculation.)

Another way for you to look at it would be this, is that extra tick or two really going to do more healing than stacking that 10k into mastery?

For 10m you might be better off sticking to 3043 or 6652 haste, then rest mastery.

If you want to play around with haste use SotF.

What role you are fulfilling will affect what you might do also. For tank healing with some raid then haste will be better for LB and WG. SotF and LB work pretty well together for tank healing too. Current SotF with base haste cap gives 15 extra ticks of LB and 7 extra to WG

Like with any class tho, to each there own smile.png, just do what works for you.

      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards.

      I have a few questions concerning the upcoming expansion:
      First I wanted to ask, how everything with legendarys and artefacts is now going to be, are there still gonna be legendarys with the same role as in Legion and what about artefacts, are the HoA armors the new artefacts ?
       
      Furthermore I wanted to know wheter or not pvp is mandatory for warfronts and island plundering or if you don't need to be a top pvp player to still achieve some nice things and interesting rewards.
       
      With warfronts I also wanted to enquire how the gameplay most likely will look like, they are pve events so you shouldn't need to be a pvp player, right ?
      Also one last question, how hard do you think the warfront rewards will be to get ? The transmog does look quite nice and I wanted to ask if it is gonna be something, that is going to be locked and only available to hardcore players

      Hello!
      I was wondering how I could improve my damage to log higher as a feral! My armory: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/silvermoon/wólfíé
      and all of my logs: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/eu/silvermoon/wólfíé
      I usually maintain bleeds 95+% of the time and don't waste combo points, I cast tigers fury and open with rake, ashmane's then shred and rip (I skip the extra shred if I get 2 combo points from rake)  then I just shred and fbite spam (and making sure to use trinkets on cd) What should I change to log 95+?
      I have legendary gloves and wrists for feral if I should change legendaries. 
      thanks in advance!

      Hi all,
      I'm currently playing a restro druid mainly for Raid - Mythic +
      Can somebody explain to me; especially for raids, why my HPS is very low compared to the other healers.
      I'm currently going with 936 gs - Shoulder Leg & Finger Leg (2nd talent in lvl75)
      Crit 19%
      Haste 21%
      Mastery 27%
      Versatility 2%
      All of my items habe atleast Mastery - even 8 Items Mastery & Haste.
      Nevertheless I'm unable to compete in HPS during raids HC + Mythic.
      Maybe it's something related to my rota - my current play style is:
      - Lifeboom on tank combined with cenarion ward & rejuvenation.
      - Dotting all others with rejuvenation
      - Effloresecence somewhere at meeles
      - wild growth as soon as multipe dmg mostly combined then with flourish
      - tranquility for heavy aoe
      - swiftmed for heavy heals
      etc...
       
      The problem is, even with this I cannot heal more than 400 - 600hps while the other healers are going with 1 mio hps.
      Maybe someone can explain my mistake.
       
      Thanks

      I figured I'd do a Part 2 of this since I've managed to move from having never tanked before to now I can't get enough of it. 
      I've noticed a few things and wanted as much input as I can get. What has struck me so far is the lack of healers running PUGs at the lvl 60-ish area. It takes forever to get a PUG group together and I haven't been able to keep a healer with us more than 1 run through. I've made some DPS friends through PUGs which is pretty cool, but what is up with the healers???
      The second thing is how my damage relates to a few other classes at about the same level. I'm currently lvl 67. I'm able to hold aggro nearly most of the time. I have some PUG members than have a pet with taunt or something but for the most part I am good to go. What I will see are Death Knights and some Warlock/Mages that seem to be doing crazy damage while only being a level or 2 higher than I am. Is that normal or am I undergeared? I haven't quite downloaded a damage meter just yet but from watching the health bar on the enemies I've noticed that those 2 can do some big damage by themselves! So is it a gear issue with me, is it just the nature of their class at that level or are they over-geared with extra goodies figuring their main has helped pay for their current state of their equipment? And with that, any recommendations or just hang in there until I get much higher level when better equipment appears? I have Heirloom for my chest, back, shoulders, weapon and trinkets. I haven't really found any quest gear or dungeon drops that is better that what I have now.
      I can't say Thank You enough to everybody that posted advice and encouragement in my first thread. It was very helpful and I've taken a lot of it to heart and put it to work. I have had so much fun doing this...as like most things in life you are leery of...once you try it you only regret NOT doing it sooner.
