Problem with the best item combination

Recommended Posts


At the beggining i want to thank for awesome warlock guides which made far better player, but still I see myself as the beginner so the following question is


I dropped lately some items from raids,flex,ordos etc, and I want you to help me with the best combination which i should use. Since mastery is the best stat for Destro warlock I have much problem with making correct decisions.


My current gear: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/alakir/Sosek/simple


Items i looted recently and i dont know if i should use them:


1. http://www.wowhead.com/item=105773

2. http://www.wowhead.com/item=105808 (item name with dedication for u i guess)

3. http://www.wowhead.com/item=104901 (flexible)

4. http://www.wowhead.com/item=104825 (flexible)


Thank you

Tough choices sometimes


IMO you have the best trinket combo from your available trinkets.


I think the only item I would conciser is the head piece.  The chest I would not use as your 4 piece is probably going to do you better than losing mastery for some added Int and I do not think you can use that much hit between the two warforged items.


You do have Crit reforged to hit on 3 pieces, so I think the hit on the head piece will work alright when you reforged.  You're losing some mastery but double upgrade the head should be around 400 more int.

My opinion about trinkets is the same, but since mastery is the best stat for destro, wouldn't it hurt if i lose 1200 mastery?


While mastery is the best, that does not make the others stat weights worth zero.


With the hit on the helm reforged to mastery, and the items you are reforging crit to hit no longer being needed forged into hit, your total secondary stats should be higher.  You then also have the additional int which is worth just slightly less than 2 mastery/haste/crit.


I would do up an item compare on wowhead if the damn thing would load for me.


A second opinion wouldn't hurt though.

The helm is an absolute yes. Jumping 19 item levels is huge. Int is worth more than any other stat, by a considerable margin. Higher item level = higher int.


KTT and PBI are BiS for Destro. Even your LFR PBI is better for you than a flex BBoY between the passive buffs and the proc lining up with DS. When you swap to Aff for a fight, I would swap in BBoY in place of your KTT, but keep PBI.


As far as the chest is concerned... 


The 4pc has an ICD of 10 seconds. It's not listed there like it is on the trinkets, but it is in fact a thing. This means your best hope for uptime is 50%, but may often be less. 8-9 seconds is fully realistic depending on crits and number of targets. In a multi-target fight, you can expect to fill much quicker than in a single target fight. You should expect this to be closer to a 30% uptime.


The question is going to be whether a 19 ilvl jump on your chest, the item with the biggest stat budget, is going to outweigh that bonus. This is one of the few times where I'd want to open up SimC and play with it, but I think in reality I would use the higher item level.
