Comparisonof EP values : bonus set vs Gear - in practice?

4 posts in this topic



combat rogue. ilvl 572. link tho shadowcraft at then end of the mail.


I have just dropped the heroic head on immersus.

My former helmet is from the T16  set, and with this i have 4/4 for bonus set.


I am wondering about changing immediately with my new heroic gear, cause I will loose the bonus set 4/4


With respect to the value given by shadow craft, If I make the calculation -and if I assume I made no mistake- there is few difference in term of Ep value between taking the heroic head and lose the bonus set 4/4 or keep my current gear.


So if you someone can kindly help me by sharing his opinion/experience on raid about that point, would be happy.


Kind regards!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

Shadowcraft is showing a pretty significant DPS decrease if you break your 4pc for the Hood of Blackened Tears.


Because the rogue 4pc is a predictable DPS increase and not a playstyle difference, I would tend to trust that the Shadowcraft engine is calculating the benefit properly. I suggest that you do not break your 4pc at this time.


Anyone else have an opinion on this?

I'm tend to agree with Krushinator.


I'd keep it till i get another piece of tier and then use the head.

      So, I've been planning/trying to play Combat Rogue for some time now, but there's always something bugging me when I do.
      Namely stuns. I play on a PvE server, and I don't participate in any kind of PvP event (arena, battleground, etcetera).
      I usually need to take a few seconds downtime between fights due to the amount of damage I take (questing, mainly), which leads me to speculate in needing to stun to survive. Is this feeling only temporary until I get Leeching Poison, or will I need to stun to survive in higher levels (70+)?
      Also, how much of a requirement is it to stun in raids? Bosses are immune, and trash seems to die quicker than what a stun could help for, rendering the level 75 talents kinda pointless in PvE situations, at least from my point of view.
      Could someone shed some light on this for me?
      Thanks! :)

      My guild is putting together a Herald of the Titans run in a few weeks, and I've decided to roll a combat rogue for it. I'm having some difficulty understanding how scaling and stats have changed since Wrath was current, and how that might affect stat priority for a rogue locked at 80. 
      From what I understand the stat priority for a 90 combat rogue is haste>mastery>crit, but since I won't find much in the way of mastery at 80, do I focus solely on the other two stats? Do I dump everything into just one stat?

      Hi all
      I have just switch from mutilate to combat thanks to recent loot.
      Go back to my original spec <3`
      but something make me not sleep.I can't close my eyes, I have raid tomorrow and do not understand one thing.
      Please I am asking help!!!!!
      I have asked advice to shadow craft for regemming but sometime he advice me to take +320 haste and sometimes + 80 Agi +160 haste. Do understand why because according the weight the +320 haste should be always preferred.
      Is there a thing that i am missing? A link to my gear below :
      Before hemming for an important raid of tomorrow I would like to understand the difference.
      With KR
