blood dk mastery cap?

6 posts in this topic

Hey so basically I'm wondering if there's any point where I have enough mastery as a blood dk? I'm tanking heroic DS. The guide says to get much mastery as possible, but I'm not sure if that is outdated information relative to today's gear levels. Also there's a section called "No Caps" but it just talks about hit and expertise.

Thanks.

If you're a Blood DK in heroic DS, you can never have enough mastery. Reforge to it, get trinkets that proc it, and a weapon with it on it. While Parry and Dodge are uncontrollable mitigation, with so much mastery, your Blood Shield and Death Strikes will provide a controllable amount of mitigation that will make Hagara's Relentless Assault rather petty. It's also wonderful for mitigating a very large portion of the Impale damage on Madness. Nearly all of your gems should be Stam/Mastery. When you think you have enough mastery, get more.

Zagam is 100% correct. There is no cap for Mastery, it's your best stat always. Just get as much of it as you can.

And just to note, if our guides don't mention the existence of a cap for something, then there's a 99% chance that there isn't one. We strive to make them as accurate as we can. Of course, if you think there is an error, don't hesitate to report it.

Just an interesting tidbit, there is actually a theoretical cap where your base heal on DS (7% HP) would give you a capped out Blood Shield (100% of your HP) which would thus make mastery obsolete beyond that point, but that number is not attainable by any means.

You would need 39544 mastery rating which would be around 220 mastery, plus the 8 you have baseline, which would be a 1429% Blood Shield mastery.

Sounds like a cap on money in this world...you COULD theoretically obtain every single dollar/yen/pound/etc that ever existed to the point you could obtain no more money...but you'll never get there =D

      Hello all, 
                   Thanks for your yalls time and I hope I am in the the right place to ask. First things first, here is my toons info page. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/draenor/Aurgus/advanced . The question I have is this. On the Arms Warrior guide, it states the the stat priority for Arms Warrior is Mastery>Haste>Versatility>Strength>Crit . Then the first thing it says in the next paragraph is the following.
      Strength is your primary statistic. You should look for it in all of your upgrades. It provides you with Attack Power, which determines the damage your abilities do.
      Critical Strike provides additional damage to your attacks and abilities, and also increases your rage generated by auto-attack swings on successful critical strikes.
      As a on and off again / returning player and all around general boob, I mean, NOOB lol, this is extremely confusing. I am already and almost done with my main Warrior quest, and I have so far chosen gear that focused on Mastery and Haste. But from that the guide says, I am doing it wrong?
      Thanks again for your time , any help would be appreciated, and MUCH LOVE from Wisconsin :)

      This is my current pawn string from sims:
      Agility=21.87, CritRating=18.49, HasteRating=24.16, MasteryRating=22.94, Versatility=17.33
      Is anyone else getting haste over mastery and agi? I recently got the Mantle (FINALLY!), so not sure if that is affecting anything. I know crit used to be important for Mantle, so I am not sure why it would be the culprit here. I even tested swapping out my enchants to haste and it did provide a slight boost while maintaining the same scaling. Mastery is at 9300, Crit at 9300 and Haste at 8000 (Roughly), so I definitely dont feel I have enough mastery to start warranting haste over it and agi.
      Just wondering if anyone else is seeing this too?
      I do have the current sim build, so no issues there.

      Hi Guys, I need little help with stats priority and rotation. I think, Im doing something wrong with my dps. Cant break 500k-550k DPS on single target and need advice to someone AoE target bosses in Nighthold.

      Hey guys, I have all 6 tier items (heroic, some WF). My hands are 895, but got a 905 item from mythic chrono.
      Using
      ( Pawn: v1: "Blood": Class=DeathKnight, Spec=Blood, CritRating=4.57, HasteRating=7.57, MasteryRating=3.07, Versatility=6.07, Strength=9.07, Stamina=12.07 )
      (Bad I know, got the numbers from Noxxic, but just swapped mastery and crit around. Matches the balanced priority, been working for me so far lol). Not a bleeding edge raider.
      Current setup

      Proposed setup

       
      Did multiple AMR sims with both setups, and averaged it, and each time 4pc comes out a little ahead. Using Krosus as setup. 

      I'm thinking it;s the versatility on the tier hands that is making the difference, not so much the 25% chance at a rune?
      Thoughts, opinions, Thanks!
