Theorycrafting the Stats order for Mists of Pandaria

14 posts in this topic

Hello there,

Since I know there will be some people here that can theorycraft their class quite well.

I think our Stat priority will be:

Intellect (spell power for the power of our healing spells) -> Spirit (for Mana regen) -> Haste (8% cap for all ticks) -> Full Mastery -> crit.

Well why I think that the first soft cap @ level 90 would be 8%.. That's quite simple.. Since I think, and I cannot confirm if it's true or not. When I try to calculate it.

I used this an example: Viscous Ring

Heroic

Binds when picked up

Unique-Equipped Finger +752 Stamina

+501 Intellect

+354 Spirit

Requires Level 90

Item Level 463 Equip: Increases your haste rating by301 (0.71% @ L90).

Well @ level 90 as you can see. 301 haste rating will be the same as 0.71%.

@ Level 85 our soft haste cap was around 916 haste. (780 if you were a goblin with the 1% haste buff).

So I tried to calculate it and I used 301 haste rating multiple times by 12.

- 301 (0.71% haste Rating) x 11 = 3311 haste rating. (7.81% haste)

I would like to know what the other Theorycrafters would think about this..

After all I cannot confirm if it's true or not.. But It's a theory.

Also forgot to mention this was for Restoration shaman.

The main soft haste cap for Restoration Shamans was at 12.5% haste, where you would get an additional tick of spell_shaman_giftearthmother.jpgEarthliving. This means 7.15% haste from your Haste Rating alone if you have the +5% spell haste raid buff.

Currently on the beta, 425 Haste Rating is bringing you 1% haste, so you will need 3039 Haste Rating to reach the 12.5% haste cap. That said, the combat ratings are still changing with every new patch, so it is maybe too early to start worrying about stats ;)

True but I am preparing for it already Posted Image

Since we want to go for some perfect world rank kills as guild.. So I rather want to start to early and keep myself fully updated then being to late ;).

Edited: Putted a new line down.

Note that it is not guaranteed that the Combat Ratings at level 90 will remain what they currently are :)

Hey Shairro, recognize me from a thread on the official forums? (Thanks for the gear list!)

Anyway, I made an attempt at doing some comparisons between Intellect and Spirit in terms of value in a fight. I never managed to finish it up, but if you want to look at where I got to you can find it here;

Yeah I didn't quite know where to take the HEP calculations that I linked. If you have any suggestions I'd love to see them :)

I just read on MMO Class Analysis that they will buff Healing Rain + decrease it's cost. And that they will improve the out put of Chain heal.

      Hi everyone

      I won't pretend to be a veteran or a very good player because I am not either one of them (I don't raid or push Mythic+). But I've played rpg/arpg for around 15 years now on PC and have 7 lvl 110s. So I am somewhat not idiot when it comes to playing a class. However with an Enh Shaman, I am feeling like one. This class feels paper thin to play and damage seems exactly meh. Let me explain a bit more. 

      I have a Frost DK, Sin Rogue, Havoc DH and a Ret Pally as melee. I felt confident while playing them that I can take on enemies and not die even if I pulled more than one. But when playing this Enh Shaman, I've died multiple times trying to do so. Not only that, it feels that a !@#$ty lvl 106 mob (same level as me) does more dmg per hit than I do. And mind you, this is not during dungeons but normal leveling. I've never felt this weak while playing any of my melee characters. I tried doing a Legion invasion to quickly level up and died basically half a dozen time doing every single invasion quest. I can't being to explain how frustrating that is.

      Not only this, but damage wise every skill seems just not upto the mark when compared to other classes. My resource generator (Rockbiter) is a hand cramp inducing skill and I have to spam it a lot to generate Maelstrom which my other spenders just chew through. I get Stormbringer proc but its very few and far between and doesn't seem very effective even when it does. Isn't it supposed to be a nuke skill ?

      I suppose this could be because of low points in my artifact and low level gear but I had the same situation on my other characters and it never felt bad like this is. I am losing my interest to play this class at all and no matter what rotation or build I try out, it is always the same result. I pull one enemy and then after killing it I spend my entire resource just to heal up.

      Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong and if it gets better at higher levels or if next patch improves our situation.

      I know shamans are kinda messed up right now, what else is new.
      But I'm up to 900 and my already underwhelming DPS has seen no significant increase. I'm pretty sure it's tied to my low haste rating, but I'd like to make sure and see if it's just that or something else I can work to change.

      I'll Sim around 760k, This week I got 630k on Krosus, going up to 900k on Skorp and Tich.
      I feel like this is all far too low, one of our top dps is a warlock at i897 and often easily goes 900k and up just on single target.
      I could really use some help figuring out what I've done wrong and what I could improve.

      My usual priority rotation works as follows:
      >Maintain Landslide/Flametongue/Hailstorm
      >Doom winds when off CD and Stormbringer proc'd.
      >Stormstrike when proc'd
      >LavaLash when proc'd
      >Stormstrike when off CD
      >Lavalash when 90+ Maelstrom
      >Rockbiter when -90 Maelstrom
      Feral Spirit-Crash Lightning combo and Doom Winds I'll sometimes delay if there's an add/burn phase, and I have a habit of refreshing Flametongue and Hailstorm on CD if I don't have any procs. I'll also occasionally mismanage Maelstrom and need to do 2-3 Rockbiters to get back up to speed.

      My opener consists of: Prolonged Power>Feral Spirit>Rockbiter>Crash Lightning>Flametongue>Frostbrand>Stormstrike

      Hello all, 
                   Thanks for your yalls time and I hope I am in the the right place to ask. First things first, here is my toons info page. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/draenor/Aurgus/advanced . The question I have is this. On the Arms Warrior guide, it states the the stat priority for Arms Warrior is Mastery>Haste>Versatility>Strength>Crit . Then the first thing it says in the next paragraph is the following.
      Strength is your primary statistic. You should look for it in all of your upgrades. It provides you with Attack Power, which determines the damage your abilities do.
      Critical Strike provides additional damage to your attacks and abilities, and also increases your rage generated by auto-attack swings on successful critical strikes.
      As a on and off again / returning player and all around general boob, I mean, NOOB lol, this is extremely confusing. I am already and almost done with my main Warrior quest, and I have so far chosen gear that focused on Mastery and Haste. But from that the guide says, I am doing it wrong?
      Thanks again for your time , any help would be appreciated, and MUCH LOVE from Wisconsin :)
       
      ZugzwangGroo,
      All Who Wander Are Not Lost :)
