SV stats

So, I was just wondering about various stat weights and whether or not they'd be worth going after.  Mastery increases all damage dealt except auto and kill shot.  Crit is crit.  Haste increases focus regen.  I was wondering if the loss of agility would be worth the mastery/crit/haste gain.

 

Mixed Build

Mastery Build

Haste Build

Crit Build

 

Would any of these builds be worth going after?

Crit is king. Althnough mastery increases our magical damage it currently doesn't buff those abilities enough to be better than crit. Can you run a mastery build and do decent damage? Yes, you damage would still be enough to kill bosses, but if you want the most damage output you want a crit build.

The order goes agility, weapon damage, crit, haste, mastery

I agree with Crit>Haste>Mastery but if you look at the Survival stats page, it's no longer Kennyloggins, it's some other random name and now it says Crit>Mastery>Haste (as of 3/31/2014), so... is that speculation? Because haste means focus regen, faster Black Arrow ticks, etc. How would Mastery be worth anything?

Master's star weights aren't as strong as haste. I'll make sure this gets corrected

Woot, thanks. I was reading over it after finally getting my 4P Tier and I was like "uh...", no idea who Roger Brown is but that threw me off. :P

So, I've been playing around with BiS profiles on AMR and Female Dwarf, and i managed to get what I think is a pretty good profile.  AMR weights are the normal 5.4 formula build, except I have a haste cap of 10625 (25%) set at 2.4 up to, and 1.0 after, and mastery at 2.0.  This sets up a BiS profile with 43.46% crit and 28.73% mastery.  The difference between this setup and the 5.4 builds is only a few hundred, 1 or 2k at most.

You guys are including the effect haste has on our legendary meta and cloak right?  Since cloak is around 10% or so of our dps and is not affected by mastery it makes mastery a bit weaker as well.  That's why I said in a different post that capping haste at 25% may not be the BIS option if it lowers your meta and cloak procs by too much in comparison to a non capped build.

Haste may increase the cloaks proc rate, but I haven't gotten the cloak yet. And also, I say that 25% haste is purely a personal thing, that's how much haste I want to have, right now. Once I get the legendary cloak, I may decide that I want more, but not for now.

It's been included,

 

The issue is that to go above 25% haste means sacrificing a significant amount of crit or mastery for a small gain of rppm. Looking at my own stats with 30% haste(I run marks usually), The cloak proc Bm is 2.27, MM 2.71, Surv 2.61/minute, The gain of haste at that level compared to 2.18 for BM, 2.61 for MM, for 2.51 Surv at 25% haste isn't going to be worth it. The 2200 rating of stat that can be put somewhere else ends up being worth more in either Crit or Mastery. 

 

As orthios said the haste level mentioned is personal opinion, for bm and surv I prefer ~22% haste for how my focus regens, but as Marksman I go insane if Im just shy of 29% because of the timing for aimedshot and focus.

Yeah, as Survival I don't actually use haste as the stat of choice, it's crit first then haste.  So I honestly never looked into where I should cap my haste.  I just figure since I'm not gemming/reforging into haste (Unless it's gear with hit/crit) I won't hit that wall you guys are talking about.

      Beside all the builds, rotations and bis legendaries, what are the ideal stat percentages  according to their importance haste>mastery>everything else? Other than valarjar berserkers, what are the other bis leggys for single target and mythic plus dungeons?

      Hi everyone,
      I, like many others, are trying to maximize DPS for their respective classes, mine in particular being ret paladin.
      In general, it seems like there are several sources of information for dps for each class.
      Icy Veins Mr Robot Raidbots (Simulation Craft) Warcraft Logs Each with its own set of criteria as to what determines high dps. And I find inconsistency when bouncing between the different sources. I want to understand what am I missing when it comes to each. I will lay out what I currently understand, and would like some feedback as to what I may not be considering in each as well as some advice as to what other options I could be exploring (resources) to further the insight into whats applicable for my current state.
      Icy Veins
      For Icy Veins, in particular, the stat weights, are mostly vaguely determined. From the ret guide:
       
      If I am reading this right, its Mastery >= Haste > Ver >= Crit = Str
      Mr Robot
      I use the addOn and I subscribe for the Best In Bags function. When I plug in my information in, the site recommends that I go with my 2pce t20 and balance around my legendaries with a focus on haste pieces (haste gems are emphasized).
      https://www.askmrrobot.com/wow/simulator/report/a42136294c7f40b2b7ee78023306d786
      Stat weights as listed in MrRobot:
      MrRobot Stat Weights
      From what I am seeing, Crit is most emphasized, and the one crit gem + ring crit enchants were originally recommended by MrRobot here. Also another notable thing here is haste being way behind crit's potential.
      RaidBots (Simc)
      For RaidBots, I use the addOn, and play around with various items I hoard, and use the stat weights functions. Generally the feedback I get here are to stick with the current gem setup and with regards to stat weights, emphasize at my current setup with crit. It also says I should drop some of my high ilvl pieces (935 head, and 960 chest) for 4pce (915 head, lfr 890 chest)
      Gear simc:

      Stat Weights:
      https://www.raidbots.com/simbot/report/6NkVYwEaTW26FxD4wBwey4
      Vers -> crit -> mastery -> haste -> str
      (versitality first?)
      Warcraft Logs
      I mostly use Warcraft Logs to check what the top dps players (ret pallys) are hitting and what setups are they running. I don't want to specifically link player armories in here, but upon some investigation, you'll find most are just stacking haste
      ---
      I understand stat weights are relative, however it seems like everyone has different priorities, one says mastery, another vers, another crit, another haste?
      Help me understand.
      Thanks,
      Exploit

      Hi, Im having shoulders with 925 ilevel, mastery and verstality, but also I do have shoulders 915 ilevel, haste and avoidance.

      Whats better, lower item level but with best stats (haste/avoidance), or higher item level but with mastery and versa ?? 

      In overall, is it better to aim for "best" stats or just push item level first?
