Gear Check - 907ilvl

8 posts in this topic

Hi guys, just the bi-annual gear check. On concordance 2.

Currently 6/10M, 

https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/khazgoroth/stiix

That has me in what I call my heroic/mythic gear, combined with interrupts and the the interrupts from tremble before me, the speed and haste boost is nice.

For raid gear, its a mix of M/H (always maintaining 4 set) tier with Skullflower's HaemostasisSkullflower's Haemostasis and Service of GorefiendService of Gorefiend and ill swap out tremble for whatever is suited for the fight, and usually always go with purgatory.

Now I do have Royal Dagger HaftRoyal Dagger Haft and Animated ExoskeletonAnimated Exoskeleton as my trinkets, but could replace Royal Dagger Haft with Fang of TichondriusFang of Tichondrius (yay or nay). To be honest, in Mythic, the dagger has saved my butt numerous times and I don't like the loss of crit I get if i equip fang.

My other legendaries are Shackles of BryndaorShackles of Bryndaor and Archimonde's Hatred RebornArchimonde's Hatred Reborn (which i never use)

My main question is, is what I'm doing a good strategy, does the effects from skullflower and gorefiend outway the pure stats of my heroic setup? Plus any suggestions from the wise would be awesome. I try and follow the "Balanced" gearing strategy.

Regards, and thanks,
Stiix.

The leech gain is rather low compared to the value of your royal dagger. While i applause a balanced strategy in general as a tank your goal is stay alive and keep crap off of your buddies so I think sticking with royal dagger is fine. You are correct, archimondes is rather poop nuggets I don't recommend it. As far as your raid set up, you are looking pretty good, I might want a bit more crit but because you have skullflowers and gorefiend you are fine. I like that combo because I feel it covers both ends of our mitigation. So you are reducing the CD on VB which is awesome and skullflowers is just a strong legendary for blood in general. 

So for raiding your are set up perfectly. Looking at your heroic/mythic setup your stats are good but I'm assuming this is without your legendary items equipped? Depending on how far down the mythic plus rabbit hole you go, you would definetly want to start using your legendaries in the mythic plus dungeons. Specifically because certain affixes are just cancer and blood has issues with them. The abilities of the legendaries out weigh the extra couple percentages in crit or haste. Secondary stats values were diminished in one of the legion patches.

TLDR you are doing great. I like purgatory across the board in all situations. Depending on fights composition in raiding/mythic plus dungeon you may want to swap gorefiends for shackles but that's more of a really situational thing. You are doing very well and the only thing I would say if i understood your message right is 100% incorporate your legendarys into mythic plus running. Beyond that you looking pretty solid :D

For mythic plus, I find the bracers and shoulders work very well together, more healing and more dps more often from DS. With the dps increase to DS this will be even better in 7.2.5. Add in a DMC Immortality for the physical dps reduction bit and see how your gear goes. The other trinket a random stat stick or a decent dps trinket and your laughing.

Sorry bracers changed, and to clear the gear up a bit. The gems in Rethu's are all 150 haste. I'm not a huge mythic+ fan, highest I've done is 12 I think. But that's the stats with all legendaries equipped.

So, If i'm assuming the left is for raid and the right is for dungeons than you look pretty solid :D

Only thing with Rethu is the healing is much lower compared to gorefiends, its better than nothing of course, but is inferior in comparison. Otherwise I like the set ups for their intended purposes. For raiding yes we would in theory like higher stats somewhere in the middle between the two choices, however, the defensive power of your legendaries is too great to give up imo. You did denote going after a more in the middle build which is fine, for tanking though I always lean a bit more conservatively. If you feel you can stay alive well, you can start trying to increase deeps but at the end of they day your job is to stay alive. 

So, both optimized setups look good, the heroic one could use tweaking for high end mythic plus but you noted you don't really do mythic plus, sooooo

you are good to go bro :D

Awesome, just what I wanted to hear, thanks man!

P.S Rethus is more for the speed boost lol, the healing is a bonus. Do enough self healing with everything else.

On mythic plus for many of the modifiers I equip the legendary pants, because being able to move my fat arse is really a bigger buff than anything else the legendary's can offer >_<

So had a few upgrades from Heroic ToS, I don't know if simming in AMR is reliable or not, but this set I have lower healing required per second, higher TMI and higher NPS, but I lose so much haste. Mind you, at 10 stacks, its at 30% ish.

Opinions? Same Leggos as before, Skullflower and Gorefiend.

Should note I have 2 piece of ToS tier.

      Anyone else receiving fear that absolutely wipes haste off?

      Hey there, looking for some common mistakes I might be making in my gear or dps rotation that I am just not seeing. You'd think it would be pretty basic but my dps has been all over the place recently. 

      I will be fighting kiljaeden (pretty standard) and have anywhere from 650-850dps average for the fight. It's gotten me kicked a couple times obviously despite being good on mechanics. I've reviewed several guides, made sure I am enchanted and gemmed... cannot figure it out. What am I doing wrong? (Yes low on meters for other fights as well though not always). 

      924 iLevel, wearing legendary belt and chest (dont have tier to wear shoulders and chest)

      67% Mastery (issue?) 
      24% Critical Strike
      29% Haste

      Opener: Blood Fury, Tome (trinket), Crow, Bestial Wrath, Dire Frenzy, KC, AspectotW, Titan's Thunder, CS, KC, DF...

      Repeat KC, CS, And cast DF whenever buff falls off or procs bonus. 

      Talent Build is:
      Cobra
      Frenzy
      Posthaste
      Bestial
      Int
      Crow
      Killer Cobra

      Helps, tips, advice welcome. 

      Are there common mistakes to rotation i might be making even if u dont see it here? Should i be working hard to gear swap? I am at a loss and it is getting frustrating. Thanks

      I created a guide for Crafting in Legion. It was posted on Wowhead a few days ago. You can check it out here. http://www.wowhead.com/guide=5282. Let me know what you think of it.

      Hi everyone! I am slightly suck on what gear i should be trying to go for right now, and itemization for what i have, and should be wearing, my armory is here :http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/stormrage/Bãttousai/simple. My issue is that i have the legendary cloak and legendary pants so far and according to the guide those are both of the slots for the best tier pieces, is it worth wearing the tier pants over Valeeras Will? i dont have any logs at the moment, but i usually parse around 60% on fights with not much movement, but drops down to 30% on fights with movement and i feel like that is because my gear is not optimized compared to others of my item level, i have been playing rogue for a long time and i fully understand the rotation and am confident that i am doing everything correctly. How much of an item level drop should i allow to get better optimized stats? Thanks! Edit - The gems and weapon ilvl on the armory link is bogus, my weapons are 896 not 925, other than that everything is correct.

      Hi, I am a main deeeeeeps in a semi-hardcore guild that is currently 2/10M, I have 3 core legendaries: ring, belt and cloak, I am currently wearing the ring but I am uncertain of what the cloak can add to my dps. I have a 880 stat stick trinket, heroic 890 EEF, 895 draught of souls, i also have a 895 haste verst chest from Spellblade. with socket. also have the mythic skorpy neck and a 900 crit haste one with 1.8k crit.
      My question is, what is my optimal setup for single target and what is my optimal set up for cleave/M+? I do around 650K dps for single target fights and want to push my limit as I have max traits. and furthermore what trinkets/items i should be hunting for?  
      my armory:http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/frostmourne/Evànescen/simple
      I also have 4 piece set with 875 shoulders and 880 hands, didnt use them due to the massive ilvl difference and I dont think 4 set is that good anyway.
      Any comment is greatly appreciated! Please share some experiences playing around with these stats. with the stat stick and the high crit neck I can hit around 33% crit unbuffed and 20% haste.
