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

      Hello everyone! I got hooked by the Heathrstone and want to get better at it, but could anyone tell me how to craft more cards? Like I got tired of selling low cards and they dont give me a lot of credits. So far I have build the Secret Mage deck and love it. Could anyone suggest any other hero to begin with? Thank You!

      Hi!
      I would like to ask somethng about ice lance and other procs aswell.
      To maximize dps, should you always try to get rid of Fingers of Frost procs with ice lances? And if you get flurry proc, do you want to get rid of ice lance procs before casting flurry + lance combo?
      I am not sure how much icicles and maximizing their damage output before dumping them affects your damage.
      Thank 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. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids.

Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:

      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
