Juggernaut's Focusing Crystal

I was wondering what folks think about this trinket?

 

Here's my "back of a fag packet" analysis (don't worry I'm British, so fag is not a hate word- it means cigarette!).

Our guild killed the fallen protectors last week. I was doing around 97k dps, equating to approx 55M damage for the whole fight of 9 mins 30 secs.

Ok....using the calculator...

2.65% of the total damage is ~1.47M. This doesn't seem like that much....not quite 2x my total health.

HPS would then be this 1.47M divided by the fight length....2.58k HPS

This seemed quite low to me....but, comparing it to my HPS for the fight which was ~47k, this would be a 5% boost (assuming all else equal). This sounds quite good to me...

So, cutting the long short....do you folks think this trink is any good? Will you other DKs be using your bonus rolls on Iron Jug?

Cheers,
Nic

hmm, looking at the other possible tinket options I don't think the 2.56% heal are that great. I would say the CD reduction and the area of effect damage reduction on use are better options.

Even though I'm currently using this (the only tank trinket so far to drop from SoO for us) I'd have to agree with Farnion. Especially as it has dodge as base. If that whole amount would be mastery I'd probably have this to switch in place of the AoE reduction trinket on some fights, but I see the CD reduction and AoE damage reduction far above this one.

Monks and Druids might like this one though.

Agreeing with Herlee.

 

The Focusing Crystal might have its uses for tanks with weaker selfhealing but since DKs are pretty much built around selfhealing, the amount from this trinket seems too low to be of much use.

I agree with Herlee those are the perfered best trinkets for DK tanking, though  inv_jewelry_orgrimmarraid_trinket_19.jpgJuggernaut's Focusing Crystal is great for pulling trash mobs where you might be tanking alot of low to medium damage dealing mobs. It helps in evening out the spikes of incoming damage.

 

The last choice for 2ndary trinket is  inv_jewelry_trinket_09.jpgVial of Dragon's Blood

 

 

Combining both inv_jewelry_orgrimmarraid_trinket_19.jpgJuggernaut's Focusing Crystal and inv_jewelry_trinket_09.jpgVial of Dragon's Blood is a great combo when you dont need to worry about having alot of hp but more avoidance and mastery.

      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.

      Hey guys, I currently have alot of choice when it comes to what trinkets I should use. I ofcourse have been simming all the different options but because alot of these combinations include Nightblooming Frond, I take them with a grain of salt and am looking for other opinions. Just for FYI the highest SimDPS combo i am getting is Nightblooming Frond + Hunger of the Pack which is at 754 112 SimDPS. With all options I am between 897 and 898 iLvL. These are my choices
      895 - Heroic Warforged - Nightblooming Frond
      890 - Heroic - Entwined Elemental Foci
      885 - Heroic - Arcanogolem Digit
      885 - Titanforged - Unstable Arcanocrystal (+930 to all secondary stats)
      880 - Mythic - Bloodthirsty Instinct
      880 - Mythic 14 - Hunger of the Pack
      940 - Legendary - Kil'Jaeden's Burning WIsh (This basically is not an option however due to me having Greenskin's Wrists and Insignia of Ravenholdt Ring)
      Cheers for all your help, If you would like anymore information just ask.

      Is my 860 eye of command a better trinket for use than my 885 Faulty countermeasure because of the strength bonus? Which should I use
    • By Hoofy
      Hello,
      the gods of rng decided to reward me today with a  Draught of Souls titanforged from the timewalking chest. My question is, do I use it when I have max stacks of crusade or just use it on cd? Say for a fight that lasts 6 mins.
      Thanks!
