MW 5.4 Crit

19 posts in this topic

My main question is about that in 5.4 crit seems to be to stat to stack. The reason for this is the new mana tea is the best I can gather?

 

I couldn't seem to find a current stat weight (specifically for Mr.Robot) of how much spirit and haste should be gotten before I should start stacking just crit.

 

Here is my armory http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/thrall/Monksonius/simple

 

And my Mr.Roboto http://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/gear/usa/thrall/monksonius

 

I'm not sure if you can read my weights on that Robto page or not.

 

I read the the spirit I should cap at is 5100 but other than that I can not find an exact weight of what stats I need to focus on after that.

 

Sorry, if I'm being dumb and missed this somewhere else in the forums.

 

Thanks in advance though for any answers. biggrin.png

So, crit has been the stat to stack since Throne of thunder came out. (Maybe even before then in really high gear levels) since crit gives you more mana tea and does more healing than haste or mastery.

Basically you should stack crit and keep a low spirit build.

 

I'm going to completely re-vamp the Mr. robot weights soon because I feel that +120 int socket bonus might count for something, or at the very least to make them more "readable"

So I read that the highest you want your spirit is 5100 if you have the Legendary Meta Gem. Should I add that as a hard cap on spirit? Somone else In my guild said I should aim for the 6414 haste. Should I do that or would I be wasting too many gems on haste to get there?

 

Also, with how much stacking up and aoe'ing in SoO is RJW better than Xuen?

IMO you go for the highest haste breakpoint that requires less than maybe 4 gems(just made this up) and you dont drop below 35% ish crit.

 

Im at the 9158 breakpoint with 33.6% crit and it works for me. I set my mr robot spirit to 5K but i have 8900 even though im reforging out of it on all my pieces except 1.

 

RJW can have its uses but i find it can be very mana intensive so i find i am only using it during meta procs or Thok.

 

Most of the normal SoO fights i have used Xuen for the extra dps (Korvens amber casing on paragons, Darkshaman cleaving, spoils cleave etc).

 

RJW was good for thok and had its uses for garrosh as we move as a group from the desecrated weapons.

 

Xuen is my preferred talent beacuse it does dps and some heals but its also a set and forget CD style talent and has no impact at all on my mana management or positioning.

 

Im sure there are many different arguments for which talent to use and when so this is just my opinoin :)

This.  and thats 35% raid buffed (so about 30% unbuffed)

 

Also, IMO crit > haste(to breakpoint with little haste gems) > spirit > mastery.

 

Even though spirit is useless past 5100, so is mastery, and spirit at least lets you overextend your mana if you screw up a lot or just want to waste mana to push numbers.

Thanks for all the help in explaining this. I just cam back from a break since Terrace and I was still weighing my stats for that. This should definitely help my healing :D

What about spirit without legendary meta gem?

 

It shouldn't matter too much since the mana tea chug change. As I've said in the :how to ask for help with MW monks" thread just go for the low spirit cap and see how it feels.  If you think you need you need more just go up.

I just want to thank you guys for all the advice.I changed up my stat weights and how I'm healing. I'm finishing a lot of boss fights with either 80% or more mana.

I still cant find the edited weights we should be trying to use. I look at Krazymonk and Brewmonksta on robot and they seem to be both default builds, and i look at the 1 posted above which has spell power at 0 and 3145 haste cap?

Hi Alan,

 

I'd always raid in 10man and I found out that the best way to learn how to manage your mana properly, is to make a hardswitch to the less spirit possible and learn how to use your spells properly. 

 

That being said, if you find yourself with little to no mana, no matter what you do, putting a 8k spi cap is viable. If you can't manage your mana with 8k spi, I think is more a gameplay/rotation issue than stats. You shouldn't have to go to 10k, that seems a little too much imo.

 

Hope it helped.

Krazyito;  have you by chance redid the stat weight like you were planning?  I hate to bother and ask, but I'm horrible with the numbers, so must rely on those smarter than me lol

      Okay so I'm new to monks, I used my legion 100 boost on a monk. 
      Yesterday I ran Neltharion's Lair and Darkheart Thicket, and saw something on Skada that had me wandering.
      I saw that my stagger damage and damage taken from auto attacks is almost the same, even if I'm using purifying brew. Now, the question is:
      Should I be taking more damage from stagger, even if I'm using purifying brew, or should I be taking more damage from autos? Does it matter that much if I'm thinking on tanking for mythic+, heroic raiding?
      (Idk if this is a dumb question, I'm just a 102 monk wanting to learn how to tank correctly)

      Hi all, 
      here is the thing, my MW (Sitaki) and i are in a bad place - i have tried a lot of strategies, gearing etc but i do not really feel i 'get it' - i am oom quickly in fights (both my trinks are chosen for mana regen), and in general i do not feel good about my heals in raids (M+ is not my focus)
      Approach/rotation - to use vivify as my main spell, essence font either just before a movement phase when i cant heal, or when large number of the raid is missing health, enveloping mists on low tanks, followed by either artifact or vivify spam to get them up. i do have a bad habit to ignore artifact because of slow cast time, so i do hit 12 stacks quite often (and therefore waste some charges i know). i try to have a renewing mist running, but i could probably do better. i dont try fistweaving. i have noticed in fights where i can ignore tanks more, my heals and mana usage are generally better
      Legendaries - i have belt, legs, shoulders and tank chest i use belt and legs atm (because legs are supposed to be very strong and i need to use legs or shoulder slot for 4piece tier
      Consumables - crit food, int flask, prolonged power for pre-pot and channeled mana pot in fight
      Gearing -generally my plan is the 2 mana trinks,  use 2 legendaries and try to maintain 4-piece, switching  the others in desperation when i get depressed with my healing (i have a bagful of gear, and can change to re-align  stats if needed).
      Armory - http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/draenor/sitaki/advanced
      Logs - these are my latest, there are a lot more uploaded on warcraftlogs (my rotations on mythic wipes were done knowing we would wipe before i could oom! hc ones after should be good tho) https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/ZFXHWRAkY3fcvKhN/
      TLDR: my MW makes me sad, help me love it again please, any further info needed please feel to ask ^^
       
      Cheers, 
      Sitaki
       
       
      ---- Update
      just noticed i am wearing cloak with no ench/gem, its new - i would probably put int ench and a crit gem

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting ranged DPS, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 3/10M NH, 7/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk; in addition, we would like to acquire a second Shadow Priest or Demon Hunter. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required.
      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.
      If you are interested, please PM me (violentravi#1826) or recruiting officer Sepsis (tuxedomask#1712) in game.  However, if you have time (which goes a long way) for us to give you a real evaluation there is a short forum to fill out linked on our discord: https://discord.gg/JMVuYRW
       
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo
