Do I break Tier 16 4 pc?

Hello.

 

I'm an Assassination Rogue with the 4 piece tier 16. Gloves and pants 553 (Celestials), helm and chest 540 (Flex). I also have Warforged shoulders 559 (Ordos). I just picked up the Warforged helm 559 (Ordos) so my question is do I break the 4 piece set, and swap helms?

 

If not, is there a time when I should break the 4 piece set? What about the 2 piece, do you ever break that? If I have all Warforged gear is it worth breaking 2 piece?

 

I'm also assuming that heroic 2 and 4 piece trumps Warforged, but what about the sets from normal?

 

I realize I'm throwing in a lot of what-if type of questions here, but I don't want to have to post again later if I am fortunate enough to pick up more gear.

 

Thanks,

Usual answer about gear: check shadowcraft (http://shadowcraft.mmo-mumble.com)

 

From fierydemise (rogue theorycrafter who helps with shadowcraft)

 

"T16 2pc is also a very strong set bonus and should be a high priority. T16 4pc by contrast is very weak and may not be worth using compared to several pieces of higher ilvl. Note that ShadowCraft somewhat undervalues T16 4pc so if the difference between T16 4pc and offset gear are very close T16 4pc may be worth using."

 

So, go to shadowcraft and import your character

Switch the helm, do some reforging if necessary, and see if there's a big improvement

 

Currently, shadowcraft says 270k DPS (not quite a true reflection of what you should be doing, but it's close on single-target fights). Switching the helm for the Ordos one, gemming, upgrading, and reforging, gives you +196 DPS (that's 196, not 196000). In terms of real DPS, I'd be very impressed if you noticed a difference of 200 DPS in the game.

 

Given the statement about shadowcraft undervaluing the 4-set bonus, it's probably safe to say that it's not worth switching.

 

Even with warforged legs and chest (Ordos doesn't drop gloves) you get a 1.3k increase in DPS, which is roughly 0.5% over your current gear. It's not a hard and fast rule, but generally I don't consider anything <1% to be worth upgrading, gemming and reforging all my gear for, but you may feel differently.

if you plan on getting normal mode gear for T16 as in the rest of it in normal set. dont bother to upgrade, as Falcifer said such a minor dps increase it is hardly worth worth the effort along with price. just sit on it for now. or if you want that small increase like i do just go for it. 4 set in the long run would probably work out more in benefit.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS. We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 5/11 Mythic Antorus. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:15 PM until 12:15 AM Eastern. Currently, our main goal is to push Mythic progression & finish out the raid before next patch, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us, because we will not be doing Heroic or anything like that.
      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.
      As far as classes are concerned, at this time, we do not have ANY rogues, DPS warriors, havoc DH, or wind walkers.
      If you are interested, add me to battle tag and we will talk (violentravi#1826), I will accept mostly anyone who wants to be a bench or casual, but for raiding purposes, you must be able to provide logs.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      Heya!
      So I’ve read the Icy Veins Sin Rogue PvP Guide that suggests Cheapshot > Garrote > Mutilate > Rupture as an opener. It works very well, but I’m wondering if I should use another opening rotation with MotMA (gives 100% crit chance for 5 sec after exiting stealth mode)? I know that legendaries aren’t active in arenas, but I was thinking in wpvp/duels. 
      Cheers :)
