Some Thoughts On Trinkets

Recommended Posts

I just won inv_jewelry_orgrimmarraid_trinket_18.jpgNazgrim's Burnished Insignia, and I'm wondering with my current gear, is it worth it?

 

I know the two I have are probably better in the end, even though it's not the heroic one yet (casual guild, we're in no hurry for AoTC, we'll get it), however I'm wondering if the trinket procs on each target a Chain Heal affects, or if it's only the initial target, OR if at all. Any thoughts?

I personally don't think that the Multistrike/Cleave trinkets are very worthwhile, but, do you feel like the regen from your Siege trinket is needed?

 

If yes, then keep it the way you have it.  The trinket is worth a lot of spirit/regen, and the static int is very passive and an easy gain.

 

If no, then try out the Nazgrim's.  The multistrike isn't worth a huge amount to a resto shaman, since it won't affect Totem heals (I think), and the large int proc can be a little more difficult to manage.  But done well, it should be a small increase in throughput.

I don't need the regen at all from it but I do like the static int, which is why I'm super skeptical. I'm not very good at deciphering numbers and such, reading through logs confuses the hell out of me which is why I don't log any of my attempts but I'm thinking maybe in Flex carries or something, might come in handy. I don't know... maybe I should just vendor the thing lol. Druid heals didn't want it for whatever reason.

I personally prefer modifying trinkets.

Sha trinket never dropped for me, but i had Samophlange and dropped it for the Insignia.

So now I'm raiding with Thok's Acid-Grooved Tooth (Cleave) and Nazgrim's Burnished Insignia (Multistrike).

 

In this log you can see our 10-man Malkorok HM tries, where all the raid is extremely spread out:

http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-kg8esjyntwsmeqcg/details/10/?enc=wipes&boss=71454

Multistrike: 2.9% of Healing Done (25% Overheal)

Cleave: 2.4% of Healing Done (58% Overheal)

 

Malkorok NM - raid is spread out, low damage:

http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-4n2l1ii9vsc9k20r/details/2/?s=8605&e=8775

 

Multistrike: 2.3% of Healing Done (38% Overheal)

Cleave: 7.8% of Healing Done (29% Overheal)

 

Norushen HM - most of the raid stack close, moderate damage:

http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-2pel5u3tqsoleghq/details/1/?s=2100&e=2496

Multistrike: 2.5% of Healing Done (65% Overheal)

Cleave: 5.1% of Healing Done (69% Overheal)

 
Galakras HM - everybody stay in place, low damage:

Multistrike: 2.9% of Healing Done (69% Overheal)

Cleave: 6.5% of Healing Done (63% Overheal)

 

My personal trinkets raiting is :

1. Prismatic Prison, 2. Thok's Tooth, 3. Insignia, 4. Samophlange

 

The first place is obvious: roughly saying, this nice thing adds to all your useful stats without causing overheal or popping Spirit in the wrong time.

 

My reason for putting the Samophlange on the last place is its questionable benefit for our (and yours) current situation - Heroic progression. It was really good on the start of SoO, when every point of the main stat (Int) and every bit of mana were important and useful, but now, when you have 2-4 Heroic pieces of T16, stats or mana are really not the issue.

I would say that every resto shaman who still have mana issues on this stage of progress need to overview the efficiency of his healing.

 

If I could have a choice between Thok's and Nazgrim's trinkets, I would prefer Thok's. As you can see in the logs, while both trinkets have the same Overhealing more or less, Thok's Cleave 'Healing Done' is normally twice higher than Nazgrim's.

But i still would save the Insignia for some specific fights.

 

So, the answer on your question - Yes, trade the Samophlange for the Insignia. Direct modification of your heal will contribute more on your current stage of progression.

And change Insignia for the Toooth when you'll get it smile.png

I would phrase it alternately:

 

The Multistrike trinket is fantastic, but unpredictable. The Samophlange is predictable, but you don't need its regen.

 

So in my view you have two choices;

 

  1. Ditch Samophlange for Multistrike and gain some unpredictable (but doubtless strong) healing.
  2. Ditch a load more Spirit for Crit or Mastery and keep Samophlange.

 

It's often said but rarely actually remembered that you should find yourself under 10% mana at the end of a fight. Right now, I'm at 11k Spirit and I still have 90% at the end of most fights with Samophlange equipped. From that point of view, 2k (nearly 4k in your case!) stats would go a long way to making you a more consistently strong healer. I calculated when I got the Samophlange that it's worth somewhere in the region of 3-4k Spirit on average.

 

I prefer the Samophlange, for the static bonus and the extra stats I can reforge from Spirit.

 

One last note: the extra static power is really damn useful on Heroic Malkorok progress, effectively meaning your casts top people up that little bit more. It makes all the difference.

Trinkets in SOO are all very situational and besides the sha trinket I can't say any of them are better all the time.

The multistrike has worked well for me when I am using more single target heals or focusing a tank. The int proc is always welcome

Thok's has worked well on clumped fights in 25 man and the int is nice.

I also keep the regen trink around for when I need to heal and burn mana.

My advice, learn when each trinket helps your style the most and use it at that time.

Stoove's post is dead on as far as using the regen to help you pick up some harder hitting stats. Have fun with it.

Now, with your analysis, I'm kind of curious why you still put Insignia ahead of Samophlange.  If Insignia's throughput is only 2.5-3%, do you not think that the ~2400 Int would increase your healing by the same ~3%?

 

I'm sticking to my own assessment, with the addition from Stoove.  I'd keep the Samophlange, and drop 2/3/4k spirit into other stats until the regen from the Samophlange is worthwhile.

It's worth noting that the throughput benefit from Samophlange is totally reliable, in stark contrast to the procs off the other trinkets. That, I think, is why it pulls ahead for healers so much.

If you can use Samophlange to reforge more spirit off your gear I think its an easy choice.

 

Outside of that just beware cleave is close to useless on certain 10 man fights

      ABOUT US:
      Gordian Knot is a semi-hardcore raiding guild that consists of experienced raiders with some of them having raiding experience as far back as Vanilla.
      We are a friendly group who enjoys World of Warcraft and loves raiding. We have fun and joke around but when bosses need to go down then all is serious! We wish for all our members to enjoy the game as much as we do and we expect raiders to maintain a 80% attendance per month.

      We also enjoy a variety of other activities such as running a lot of Mythic+ dungeons doing alt-runs, achievement runs etc.
      We generally aim to push Mythic+ to get +15 keys done for the weekly chests. We do this in spirit to help everyone in the guild getting their highest possible gear reward from their weekly cache (socials included).
      There are a few things we hold in high value but above else we value friendliness and politeness towards guildies and other players and skillfulness when it comes to the more serious parts of the game.

      We raid 3 nights a week, Wednesdays, Sundays and Mondays, from 20:15 till 23:15 server time. Our raid invites always start 15 minutes prior to each raid.
      Although we are a 20-man guild, we usually run an extra group in order to get more people to experience the joys of raiding, help new raiders learn the Knot’s way to down bosses and gearing up.

      About The Guild
      Twenty First Knights was formed in 2021 with the working gamer in mind, a grounded midcore experience where great gamers with real lives can come together and still complete competitive content without the noise and toxicity of "elite" guilds. To that end we’re more than just a gaming guild – we are truly a community made of members who enjoy playing every single aspect of the games we play, from PvE to PvP to Crafting to chattering socially with each other over Discord.

      What We Are Looking For
      We are looking for folks who are interested in the community and the people they play with as much as the game. If you have a get in and get out mentality then Remnants is probably not for you. If you want to enjoy and down content with capable players who are friendly and patient, then Remnants is most likely a great fit for you. If you’re just returning and are looking for a great guild to catch up and grow with or are simply looking for a more grown up environment then look no further, we kindly offer a trial membership which gives you a chance to get to know us better before committing and vice versus.
      PvE
      We strive to help our members get the most out of PvE content and also assist them in improving and advancing. We are always willing to provide advice and guidance on builds, gearing, and mechanics. We are currently planning on restarting normal raiding and subsequently heroic raiding as our progress dictates. It is a great time to join the guild if you are just returning to the game or missed out on this content before the next patch hits.
      PvP
      We encourage fun and friendly gaming to both the fans of PvP and those curious about it. Twenty First Knights PvP primarily focuses on the social aspect of gaming, and players of all skill are welcome to join us at any time.

      Crafting
      Our crafting department provides the consumables you need to participate in the events of our other departments. The guild bank offers flasks, potions, and feasts for our event times, as well as gems and enchants to keep your gear competitive.  We also hold raffles and gathering events with prizes for those who like to help us keep our guild bank stocked!
      Play Socially or Casually
      Although we have members doing end-game content, we also have many members who play when they have time, or enjoy the simpler pleasures in WoW like leveling slowly or going on random adventures. We also have a very inviting approach when it comes to difficult content: many of our members are happy to bring along a “newbie” to dungeons or new content, but there’s no pressure for you to join events you aren’t interested in!
       What We Offer
      Very active Discord for voice chat and keeping in touch while away from the computer Freedom to play your game the way you want Scheduled events on the calendar as well as “pop-up” events put together through guild chat Friendly and non-judgmental community and environment A structured leadership team, with officers for each of our departments (PvE, PvP, Crafting, and Recruitment) What We Value In Our Guild Members:

      [H] [Tarren Mill] <Gambit> 2 day mythic raid team and social community!

      Progress: 
      8/11M Sepulcher of the First Ones (AOTC)

      Past tiers:
      6/10M Castle Nathria (May 27th to June 14th only)
      9/10M Sanctum of Domination
      Story:
      "Gambit" was founded in April 2021 under the name "Journey". It was started by a group of old friends wanting to reconnect and create an enjoyable raiding team, where competitive players could work together in building a Cutting Edge team, free of toxicity and on a relaxed 2 day schedule. Everyone in the founding group had proven themselves in Cutting Edge raiding before and wanted to do so again with this team!
      In early 2022 we went through a transition in the leadership as we wanted to expand our focus towards building a community and not just running a raid team. The raiding goal remains the same, to accomplish Cutting Edge! But we also want a community where friends can play together, both in- and outside raids, and whether or not they are part of the raid team. A place where we can also play other games when content might be getting a bit old or we just wanna dabble in something else. We therefore opened the guild to socials, who want to be part of a small tight knit community of friends with which they can explore this game as well as others, without having to be part of the raid team and committing to a set schedule. With this expanded focus we decided to also rebrand the guild and involved all our members in deciding a new name which led us to become "Gambit" in late January 2022.
      Having fun with friends is key to our community, and despite our high-end raiding goals, we have zero tolerance towards toxic behavior and misplaced egos. We all play the game for enjoyment and to achieve our goals together. We don’t obsess over meta and bench people for being the wrong class, but remain realistic about what is required to beat certain fights and will work with our team to adapt to the content that is thrown our way. That being said, performance obviously matters when pushing for Cutting Edge, and raiders are expected to always strive towards improving and being the best they can be, but we work hard on keeping the atmosphere positive, as having fun while raiding is the key to the longevity of the raid team.
      To reach our goals in raiding we are always working to maintain a roster of like-minded players that know how to have fun, but also know how to dig in and grind when needed. People that know their class and play it to a high standard!

      We offer:
      A community of friends and passionate players A raid team of players working together to achieve their goals A competitive and drama free environment for raiding A home for both raiders and socials wanting to play together both in- and outside World of Warcraft Officer and raid leading team that have accomplished Cutting Edge before, but also value the community and social aspects
      Our expectations of raiders:
      English speaking and willing to use your mic High attendance Always striving to be the best you can be Able to take constructive criticism Ability to come prepared on tactics and stocked on consumables for your own usage
      Our expectations of socials:
      English speaking Friendly and interested in being engaged with the community
      Raid schedule (server time):
      Monday 20:00 - 23:00
      Thursday 20:00 - 23:00
      Optional non-mythic raid on Sundays same time for as long as HC farm is considered relevant at the beginning of a tier. (Not mandatory)
      We will have a break roughly halfway through the night.

      Loot system
      We use loot council to ensure that upgrades are placed where they benefit the teams progression the most. Raiders always come before trials in loot distribution.

      What we are looking for in the raid team:
      Dedicated raiders that don't give up when it gets a little hard!
      Tanks
      None Healers
      None Melee DPS
      None Ranged DPS
      Spot 1: Mage, Ele shaman or Balance druid We always consider exceptional applicants for the raid team and ask that you fill out our application form on our discord in order to be considered: https://discord.gg/jgP3BVzG2d
      If you're only interested in joining as a social, then feel free to reach out to an officer in game for a chat, but note that we do not recruit raiders this way - raid team recruitment is through the application form.
