Gemming full parry or parry/dodge as prot?

3 posts in this topic

I just have one question i just cant find a proper answer for...

 

Gemming full parry in red, parry/dodge in yellow and parry/stam in blue is a dps increase when u use the glyph of hold the line, i get that, and i also know that dodge has a bigger DR than parry so its better to use more parry because u can have more of it without losing its potential and stuff.

 

But my question is, when gemming this way how many survivability do i loose? like is gemming parry/dodge better for survivability than gemming pure parry? and why?

Do i get more Revenge procs out of it? do i regen more rage during a fight?

all questions i cant find a proper answer for =/

 

i want to to high dps, sure. but not for the cost of high survivability...

 

So if anyone is out there and knows the stat prioritys and the DR on both Parry and dodge and can tell whats better it would be great =) thx guys

Actually you have 2 orientation available:

 

1/ You already clean SoO HM and you may look after Ranking so used a Crit orientation

2/ You still not clean SoO HM so you should take a Par/Avoid orientation

 

parry/dodge better for survivability than gemming pure parry? and why?

 

Each time parry is proc it is affecting the Diminish Return (DR)

Each time boss avoid your attack it is affecting DR too.

So it is better to have 2 DR concern (Parry & Avoid) than only one, that is why full parry is a mistake.

 

As the DR for avoidance is slightly 2 more quick than parry you have to used this macro

 

 

/script DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("If ration above 1.88 start getting Parry. Currently at:"..string.format("%.2f",(GetDodgeChance()-10)/(GetParryChance()-10)))

 

Also Even on Par/Avoir on few boss you can have >500k DPS (Garrosh HM, Klaxxi, Blackfuse) depending on your strat and/or your role.

 

Few tips:

If you have a 2 tank comp do not forget to switch to keep up Revenge.

You can stack up Revenge in front of Malkorok, Garrosh, ... under CD to keep up your revenge (so your DPS)

 

To Conclude, even if i already clear the SoO Hm content, I prefer keeping my Avoid/Par orientation than look for a rank.

 

For ranking i used my DPS spec.

 

Hope it will help you

Gemming full parry versus parry/dodge is largely personal preference. I like to get the most out of my stats that I possibly can and to that end, I gem a mix of parry and dodge. I reforge mostly into parry, then gem dodge until my DR is even. I have a more detailed way of doing this in my guide (stickied at the top of the warrior forum). Gemming full parry versus parry/dodge is probably roughly even in terms of damage output. Hard parry will give you slightly fewer Revenge procs, but you'll have slightly more benefiting from Hold the Line. Mixed dodge and parry will give you slightly more Revenge procs, but slightly fewer of them will benefit from Hold the Line. I should probably just break this down into a pros and cons list.

 

Pure Parry:

Pros: Slightly more benefit from Hold the Line

Cons: Slighty fewer Revenge procs, therefore slightly less rage and slightly fewer overall avoided (dodged or parried) attacks. Slightly more damage taken overall. Will take slightly longer (on average) to proc Riposte.

 

Mixing dodge/parry to balance out your DR has the opposite of the pure parry route. Keep in mind, even when balancing your DR, you still have massively more parry. At 589, I have roughly 2.5x as much parry as I do dodge so I still get plenty of mileage out of Hold the Line. Also keep in mind that even when I'm very meticulous about balancing out my DR, I gain something on the other of half a percent total DR. The difference between the two gemming strategies is really incredibly minimal. If cost isn't a big deal to you, feel free to play around with it and see what you like. I'm fond of getting the absolute most out of my points and I feel that balancing my DR does that, but again- any gains or losses are minuscule.

 

Please feel free to ask any more questions you have.

      Hello y'all, 
      So I'll cut right to the chase. I feel like I'm under performing. Or I could be doing just fine with my current gear/stats (SimCraft may have given me unrealistic expectations).
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/malganis/veinsplitter
      I have decent stats, draught and convergence, and my 4 piece. These are all on the lower side, so I think that would be one way to improve my DPS, but that's not what I'm here for. I ran a Sim today and it states that under ideal conditions and a perfect run, I should be doing around 900k, with an initial burst of 1.7k, and a couple peaks around a mil. I don't see these numbers, especially the peaks of 1 mil, while I run though, which leads me to my original point of me thinking I'm doing something wrong.

      One thing someone will probably point out is that I wasn't using pre-pots on either of those. That'll change in the future. 
       
      My rotation is based off of the Fury Discord guide.
      Opener - Charge/BT/BC/Rampage/Drought/RB
      I'll usually then BT or Rampage based on rage, OF, and then go into a priority system of Enraged RB > BT > FS > RB
      Rampage at 100 rage.
       
      At execute phase, my execute rotation is:
      Execute/FS/BT in that order to keep myself at 100 rage for Frothing. While this is what the Fury Discord states, I tend to not get a ton of Execute damage on the boss and feel this is one area I could be doing something wrong.
       
      On add fights, I know that I don't incorporate Whirlwind enough into my rotation, and that's something I need to be a bit mindful of. But after I burst, I tend to drop down at a steady rate. I don't usually see my DPS jump back up unless I Drought (which makes sense), but when I'm doing my standard rotation I can't keep my numbers up. Krosus should be a straight forward fight, but if you look at the logs, my dps drops to around 500k. Am I screwing something up? Or am I pulling comparable DPS to a fury warrior with 897 ilvl. 
      Thank you all for any help you can provide to me. I greatly appreciate it. I just want to bring honor and glory to all of my warrior brethren out there.

      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 :)

      Hello! New to forums, and sorta WoW. I played a mage back in WotLK but nothing since and have started a Warrior with intentions of high end PvE/PvP, currently level 54.
      I have lots of questions, but two that I need help with today are 1) I'm duel wielding two-handers and have no idea how this affects my spells? I understand that a weapon in the off hand position does less than it would in the main hand but is that just for auto attacks? I noticed in my combat logs yesterday that some of my spell hits had (off-hand) next to the log, but I'm having trouble telling how that affects how/when I should use abilities like execute/rampage.
      2)How in the world does attack speed affect my spells, and to add.. how does haste affect my weapon speed? I thought weapon speed increases auto attack (White damage) speed only and haste is only for GCD, but on icy veins they list Enrage as the most important thing for fury warriors to keep up, but aren't auto attacks only a small portion of my damage? and it says to make sure to have enrage up before bladestorming?
       
      I've tried googling how attack speed/haste works and no one addresses the questions I asked which makes me think I'm totally missing something obvious so sorry if that's the case but thanks for any help.
