Which legendary should I use?

7 posts in this topic

Okay, so i got a 3rd legendary for my frost mage, Sephuz's Secret, the issue is that I have the crafted legendary shoulders and Lady Vashj's gloves equipped. My stats: Crit 33%, Haste 23%, Mastery 32%, and Vers 4%. When I equip the ring, my crit and haste bump quite a bit up, and i lose a bit of mastery (because the gloves i use as a replacement have crit and haste too). Should I keep gloves on for their equip bonus, or should i replace them with Sephuz's for the stats and ilvl increase? I know my crit will be above the soft cap with ring, but i can swap gems and enchants for haste ones as noted on the guide.

~Thanks, Underclocked

Based on what you have posted for specs, crit is good, haste is way to low, should be highest after intellect, mastery is way to high, no more than 25 percent. so i would swap in legendary and switch trinkets to boost intellect and haste, your crit is good maybe a tad high. hope this helps out.

Thank you for the help, so I took off the legendary gloves, equipped some 890's with +341 crit, +853 haste, and +511 leech. I also replaced a stat stick that had int and crit with an 895 Pharamere's Forbidden Grimoire, which gives +1,158 haste. The ring I replaced with Sephuz's Secret had the same stats, but was 860 ilvl, so all it did was give bonus points into crit and haste. Before the new gems and enchants, I'm now at 32% crit, 32% haste, 29% mastery, 4% vers, and 2% leech. My intellect is 40,614.

While yes, hitting crit cap is important, the legendary effect of the gloves is huge, if you can get a good 40-50 second IV going, that's 4-5 free Ice Lances. You should be working your secondary stats on other gear around your legendaries/tier pieces, not the other way around. Sephuz is a great legendary effect as long as the fight has kicks, and is a pretty decent one even without the ability to proc the extra haste, especially when compared to the crafted effect.

The gloves are great for that, problem is, not enough haste you take longer to cast. gloves do not offer improvement until haste comes up. then will gain benefit. i agree completely on your statement about working the other stats around the tier pieces.

Your stats are looking good right now.

I do remember that it was pretty easy to stay crit-capped before Nighthold raiding, so you're good. It becomes harder to stay at 33% with the tier set. However, you're well on your way.

Though, I didn't start using the legendary gloves until I got the legendary bracers to go with them. Just get yourself a couple gear pieces to swap legendaries out, and practice rotations on target dummies until you find the combination giving you the best dps

      I'm making a survival build for guardian druid for dungeons, lfr and a bit of battleground. I have Soul of the Archdruid and Dual Determination. Now I got Cinidaria, the Symbiote. Should I choose it over my existing two?

      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.

      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.
