Gear Changepoints

4 posts in this topic

Hello fellow mateys!

 

I've been raiding past expac and chunked in some good N gear. Now that I'm leveling my lovely Rogue, I'm being faced with the new items and now I'm in doubt of when to change what. I took teh risk on doing few pieces by myself, but currently I'm unsure of what to use or if I should give up on certain pieces, given that we have a lot more of secondary stats and it's too damn early to set up for weights, plus most gear currently being greens.

 

Currently I'm running on Sub, and still using my T16 raid gear, due to a bunch of slots and stats (agi > mast). Do you guys have any suggestions of what to change? Feels so strange giving up on slots to equip something just because of higher iLevel.

 

Thanks!

 

Edit:

Her face, if anything.

Higher ilevel items give more Agi, which means that it's more than likely an upgrade for you. The other benefit to replacing all of your SoO gear once you hit 100 is that you'll have the item level to run Heroics - you need to get 610, which means that all of the precious epics have to go. Also, AoC got WAY nerfed after level 90, so replacing that asap is a really good idea

 

The following graph for Stat Weights is taken from the mmo-c thread where Ryme did all his SimCraft work.

 

As you can see, Agi is far and away the most valuable stat for all Rogues, with weapon DPS following closely behind.Other than that, Mastery and Multistrike have approximately equal value, with Crit and Versatility being our next best options. Haste takes up last place now, which is kind of irritating and makes Rogue feel very slow, but that should improve with a little more gear

Carrn, thanks for your input!

 

About AoC, how did it get nerfed? Because I'm failing to see it. It still gives a hefty amount of Agi and the CD on skill still applies (I get like 45s on SD).

 

All my current gear pulls ahead on Agi numbers (due to slots), but in the end I'll be forced to item switch due to iLvl needs...

 

Edit:

 

Also, is anyone PvEing as Sub here? Could you give me inputs about how well you're faring? Given teh buffs to Sub's positional requirements, I feel it's quite a strong spec to raid now.

Sub is a great spec to raid now, and I'm SUPER excited for it. I really dislike both other specs, and have since Vanilla, so I'm really pleased at how well Sub is doing in a dungeon / raid environment.

 

The only thing is that I'd recommend levelling as Combat or Assassination - it's just a little easier, and cause mobs die so quickly, you don't really get to practice your rotation as Sub

 

AoC just has reduced effects at level 91+; it might show you that it still has the same effect, but its effectiveness is reduced. Also, there are a lot of better trinkets that you can get in Nagrand. That being said, I didn't replace any of my gear until level 98 ish, but it was all gone by 100

      Hi everyone! I am slightly suck on what gear i should be trying to go for right now, and itemization for what i have, and should be wearing, my armory is here :http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/stormrage/Bãttousai/simple. My issue is that i have the legendary cloak and legendary pants so far and according to the guide those are both of the slots for the best tier pieces, is it worth wearing the tier pants over Valeeras Will? i dont have any logs at the moment, but i usually parse around 60% on fights with not much movement, but drops down to 30% on fights with movement and i feel like that is because my gear is not optimized compared to others of my item level, i have been playing rogue for a long time and i fully understand the rotation and am confident that i am doing everything correctly. How much of an item level drop should i allow to get better optimized stats? Thanks! Edit - The gems and weapon ilvl on the armory link is bogus, my weapons are 896 not 925, other than that everything is correct.

      Hi, I am a main deeeeeeps in a semi-hardcore guild that is currently 2/10M, I have 3 core legendaries: ring, belt and cloak, I am currently wearing the ring but I am uncertain of what the cloak can add to my dps. I have a 880 stat stick trinket, heroic 890 EEF, 895 draught of souls, i also have a 895 haste verst chest from Spellblade. with socket. also have the mythic skorpy neck and a 900 crit haste one with 1.8k crit.
      My question is, what is my optimal setup for single target and what is my optimal set up for cleave/M+? I do around 650K dps for single target fights and want to push my limit as I have max traits. and furthermore what trinkets/items i should be hunting for?  
      my armory:http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/frostmourne/Evànescen/simple
      I also have 4 piece set with 875 shoulders and 880 hands, didnt use them due to the massive ilvl difference and I dont think 4 set is that good anyway.
      Any comment is greatly appreciated! Please share some experiences playing around with these stats. with the stat stick and the high crit neck I can hit around 33% crit unbuffed and 20% haste.

      Our guild <Do it For Practice> is looking for a possible merge. We have been clearing content since release but hit a roadblock lately. We easily have the capacity to clear hard content, but we are just lacking a serious amount of players. This leads to other players leaving because of lack of players and the vicious cycle continues.
      The people in our guild are all extremely friendly and willing to help each other out. This is what kept our guild alive for this long, the base core is really strong. Having to pug players for mythic raids has just become a real big issue because it leads to a lot of time lost while all we want to do is just progress through hard content.
      Currently we are basically in need of a big amount of dps players, could make room for a tank and some healers if necessary.  The people we do have are all extremely geared. The average item level of our raiders is 880.
      The only way I see this problem solved is by simply merging with another guild that is experiencing the same kind of issues.
      We are an 18+ guild, most of us are 20+.
      We are open to many ideas, just talk to me about it.
      Prefer if you add me on real id, Matthijs #2267 or otherwise in-game, Cabony.
      Thank you for reading.

      Hello guys, Do it For Practice is recruiting on Stormscale EU, Horde side.
      We killed Nythendra, Ursoc and Elrethe on mythic and trials of valor heroic odyn and guarm.  Our next goals are the dragons and eye mythic.
      The current raiding days are Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 7-11 server time. Besides normal raids we also have regular mythic+ groups going.
      The age requirement is 18+. Most of us are 20+ currently, I am 26 myself.
      We use the RC Lootcouncil addon for our loot distribution, so we can gear our players as well as possible and let the least amount of loot go to waste. We strive by the philosophy of making the entire guild stronger as a whole, not just some players. This is so we can have the strongest group possible to continue progressing trough mythic content.
      I am sure the players we currently have are more than capable of clearing most mythic content currently out. We just need some more players to help us in achieving our goals.
      We are currently looking for some dps in the form of, but not limited to: Shadow Priests, A Hunter,  WW Monk, Warlock or Warrior. Having more than one playable spec is extremely valuable here!
      Please be at least 865+ before you apply, we are past the point of progressing trough easy content. You need to be able to hold your own. However we do have a social rank, if your friends wish to join us as well!
      Interested?
      Add Matthijs#2267, IGN = Cabony
