Best Destruction Weapon Enchant?

AskMrRobot advises you to use Mark of the Shattered Hand (mastery) on your weapon and enchant everything else with Crit. Mark of the Thunderlord, however, not only gives you crit, but gives you a chance to extend the buff duration when you crit, which sounds good if you can cast chaos bolts.

What do you think is the best enchant for Destruction Warlocks?

I personally will be going with the Mastery one, but I do not really have any data to back that choice up with.

 

In Beta I tested the Crit one quite a lot as I felt with Demo, having this crit proc up would be amazing for Doom ticks...but it never seemed to perform as well as the mastery one.

 

Mastery gains a lot of value once you start adding cleave targets, and I plan to offspec Demo.  I intend to change my enchants tonight as well, from crit to mastery.

Mastery starts to really add in value to players that know how the fuck to play Destro.  That being said, the proc is really nice as a boost to Chaos Bolt as the proc crit in this case feels much stronger than static crit or even proc mastery because we have so few procs right now.  The only way I would see it lose value to the mastery enchant is if it is a high cleave or heavy Shadowburn fight as non crit Shadowburns are weak as fuck and mastery will be your only savior.

I've been using the crit one for the last raid. Uptime on it was pretty good (40% for the entire night) It gets extended quite a lot because you crit a lot as destro. If it wasn't so damn expensive i would try out the mastery one aswell :c

As far as I know, inv_misc_note_01.jpgMark of the Shattered Hand isn't the mastery enchant but the bleed effect, I'm using it as well because it is the one used by most of the top locks I've checked on the armory, will try the mastery proc if this one is nerfed tho

The main issue is that the Mastery proc is like 16x more expensive right now. Once I get a heroic weapon I'll put Bleeding Hollow (mastery) on it, but right now I just have 661ilvl weapon so not too fussed.

It isn't because it is better, it's because it's 1/20th the price. In two-three weeks when Temporals are plunging in price and more people have a weapon that is worth a good enchant the mastery/crit enchants will become a lot more common.

Thanks Locky, I thought that for some reason the SH might have had a bugged/unbalanced proc. I'll get my mastery enchant once I get a 670 weap then !

      Something's been bugging me recently - why is mastery more valuable to an Unholy DK than versatility?  It seems to me that versatility should be superior because it increases ALL damage (shadow & physical) while mastery only increases shadow damage.  Does 1% of mastery scale differently than 1% of versatility in some way?  I assume I am misunderstanding something here about how versatility works.

      Salutations! I have a problem regarding stats and ilvl, i've uploaded 2 pictures of my stats and ilvl with 2 different setups.
      In one picture, my stats are (what i consider to be) pretty high except haste, but in order to have these stats i must sacrifice 6 ilvls.
      In the other my stats have decreased drastically (except haste, which has increase drastically, as well as my ilvl)
      So i wonder what i should set my focus on, my ilvl, or my stats?
      Sidenote: with high stats and ilvl 868, In most aoe cases i outdps my hunter friend who is 887 by several miles, his skills are questionable though...
      Thank you so much in advance :)

      From what I've seen on stat weights, crit has almost caught up with haste in 7.1.5. Would it be close to viable to go Mastery, Crit, Haste if you get One with the Pack? In possible theory that would mean more dire beast which helps focus, stomp dmg, and crit damage, I'd just imagine it would take a lot of crit to make it close to viable.

      I have three trinkets to choose from, Two from Mythic EN, Heightened Senses @ 880, Vial of Nightmare Fog @ 880, and finally from Nightbane Kara i have the Ethereal Urn @875. If any other experienced resto shamans could weigh in and help me make a decision it would be appreciated.

      So I was fortunate enough to get mantle of command last night, and ran some quick sims. Based on my sims, it would seem that crit has over taken haste in the stat priority when using mantle of command. So stat priority is as follows:
      agi > mast > crit > haste > vers
       
      I haven't calculated weights, but the difference in simulations was significant. I'll leave the weight calculating to others. The idea is that with mantle of command and the changing function of dire beast, it is more advantageous to get more dire beasts from crit, than reducing the CD through haste. Maybe someone else can confirm this also.
