Whetstone opinion?

So I got an ilvl 900 Windscar Whetstone for the weekly (~1125 mastery, on-use AOE effect) that is simming a bit higher than the 880 elemental foci I had... not sure I buy it.  Definitely a monster on trash, but has anyone had much luck with it on bosses?  Not wild about the total lack of agi.

On those lines, would it be affected by the crit% boost on the legendary shoulders?  Vendetta?

Interesting. I didn't even know that was a trinket lol.

I assume it would be affected by the Shoulders / Vendetta, cause Draught of Souls is. No actual experience with it though. It's particularly interesting if it does in fact work like Draught, since Stealth doesn't break when you use the trinket.

I'm sure it's decent if the damage is applied to everyone in the area and not split. You could probably game some ridiculous damage out of it on fights with stacked adds, like Skorp or Spellblade, or even Tich with the bloods / bats.

It does break stealth on use, so that's kind of a drag.  Tried it out on Tich and in an M+ maw run - looks like each enemy eats an individual hit on each pulse, so I'm definitely gonna try swapping it in on Skorp and maybe Spellblade.  I was afraid it would be another Appendages, but it seems a bit more useful than that so far.

      Hey all,

      A small disclaimer first, I'm a BDK main in a pretty casual "heroic aimed" guild, basically we aim to get Ahead of the Curve HC and than relax, but I like to keep myself up to standard as much as possible, without doing the insane requirements some mythic guilds demand.
      So we've been raiding TOS a few times now, and I would like a second or third opinion on trinkets so far? Is it just me, or are the defensive trinkets pretty bad in the raids this patch? Also maybe I'm underrating some of the other trinkets?
      Currently I'm using a Str/Haste stat stick with a socket ilvl880 [will only replace with a higher ilvl haste stat stick] and I recently picked up a dps vers trinket ilvl925 which I'm testing out. I'm using these mainly due to not having any issues surviving fights (still not at Kil'Jaden HC, will probably use a defensive trinket at that point for the felclaws).
      Some of my other trinkets which I've tried but seem to be under-performing are:
      a 915 feverish carapace an 885 animated exoskeleton a 890 spiked counterweight a 885 memento of angerboda with leech an 880 entwined elemental foci good ole 865 unstable arcanocrystal I try to keep my unbuffed gear around the 35% haste, 25%mastery, 20% parry and then dump everything in versatility. So at this point, I'm using mostly haste/verst gear with the obvious exception of Legendaries (Shoulders and Waist) and 4 set tier.
      Thanks for helping out

      Hello there guys.

      So I was wondering if there's something like a top 10 list for SP trinkets because I'm switching trinkets like crazy and I don't recognize any difference at all. Switching between WitD/Haste-Stat and Haste-stat/Mastery-stat at the moment.
      Now the next question is if we're using AS or SL and what stats to prioritize with them? Some of the top dps SP are using weird setups and confuse me. They all favor haste of course but some play with a crit heavy build and SL and some are playing with a mastery heavy build and AS. I don't get that tbh.
      At least that's what their logs and their armory are saying.

      I know gear values are fluid etc, but I'm having a hard time getting my head around this one;
      Short form: Simcraft is showing an 880 Urn and 885 Arcanogolem as being substantially (as in 50k+) better than an 880 Convergence and 880 Frond. I get the Frond being hard to sim reliably, but that just can't be right,  Anyone else had issues with simming CoF?

      Hey guys,

      I'd appreciate if you could have a look at my trinket sims. I'm a little bit confused about the results, so maybe you could tell me if it seems correct?

      For BoS people say strength > all, but SC reccommends me 2 non strength trinkets. 
      For ST it's Faulty Countermeasure (900) and Unstable Arcanocrystal (865).
      For MT Horn of Valor (865) and Unstable Arcanocrystal (865).

      None of them has strength, could that really be the right choice for BoS?
      I also have Convergence of Fates (875), which is not reccommended as top choice, but i know Simcraft undervalues it a little bit - at least that's what i've heard.

      I run mostly M+ and only 1 day per week Nighthold, so my thoughts were to use the following combinations:
      For M+ Arcanocrystal (865) / Countermeasure (900) with tyrannical affix and Arcanocrystal (865) / Horn (865) for other trash affixes.
      For raiding i thought Countermeasure (900) / CoF (875) would be best, because CoF should be more valuable in longer fights.

      What do you think?

      (Results are in german... but i hope most of the trinket names are still understandable. Currently equipped is FC/IA.)

      Thanks in advance!
