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

      Hey everyone - I'm coming back to WOW after a 3 year break and I'm leveling a mage (fire lvl 33) - something I wanted to do before leaving.  I have read the articles on the addon but is that it?  I'm curious  what addons do you use for leveling, mobs, dungeons, etc...
      thanks

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting range DPS & Tank. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 7/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated. In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.  If you cannot get ahold of me in game, I work nights, please shoot me an email, I check it at work often and I can get ahold of other officers via text/discord if it's urgent! violentnacho@gmail.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.
