Anyone know exactly how fast the unstable iron stars in phase 4 of heroic Garrosh move? Or what amount of +movement speed you need to keep ahead of them indefinitely? Will a boot enchant plus tiger stance be enough, or do you need extra temporary buffs too?
If you have any problems or have to kite for an extended period of time (like getting an extra Iron Star that you're not supposed to have) you can always use a Darkwater Potion to get 70% movement speed for 15 seconds, or use Nitro Boosts. Be careful though, if you go too far from the Iron Star it will lose its fixate and decide to go to someone else.
I am by no means new to BrM Monk. Currently in progression, we are 2/14H 10m with Immerseus and Norushen down.
I am unable to post a link to my armory, but here is my character:

My question regards the 4-piece for heroic progression. We are currently working on Sha and i plan on rolling for the Chest tier. From there, in order to get the 4-piece, i would have to take the normal tier shoulders over my current WF ones. At that point i would have 3 Normal tier pieces and 1 heroic. My other option is to get the gloves off norushen, keep my 2-piece with the Nlegs and Hchest and have equipped WF shoulders and Hgloves. Does the higher ilvl outweigh the benefits of the 4-piece during heroic progression? Thank you for any advise you may have.
What would you say is good haste percent. Crit level and mastery going into heroic garosh 25 man.also being the one kiting.
Darkwater potion helps immensely with Iron Star kiting. I found the iron star def moved faster than my own personal stuff could outrun, so Feathers, Tigers Lust, Roll/Momentum help a lot too. I did make the mistake once during progression of getting to far from the thing right as I was hitting Garrosh with it, and it refixated at the last second to our of our immunity Malice soakers hanging out in the back. Results were quite hilarious, so many adds...

That said, the more you can get the better, such that you can steal the boss to get vengeance and squeeze in some extra DPS. Standard setup works fine for that purpose (4.5k-7k haste depending on your preference, "enough" mastery to survive (I think I used around 10k for our first garrosh kill), then stack the rest into crit up to cap)
Was Hoping for a quick response on what would serve me better?
(LFR-528) Chestguard of Seven Sacred Seals + activate 4 piece
*** or ***
(WF-559) Pamela's Muuscat Wrap + no 4 peice
I guess i would also like to know, how good is the 4 piece?
Thanks in advance
In your specific situation, I'd keep the 4pc around, and use it for Malkorok if you solo tank, and maybe on Thok or Paragons if you expect to take heavy physical damage (e.g., if you keep Ka'roz alive the whole fight and you're tanking him).
Other than that, I'd use the higher Ilevel piece for now.
So just recently got a Normal Thok's Tail Tip to play around with. A warforged one came and went to our ret...since I couldn't take that from her. I've got Warforged TED, Normal Harrom's, and flex of both stam trinkets since I've just passed the only normal ones we've ever seen to our Blood DK. Should I always be running TED and TTT at this point? We're just going to be starting heroics in a week or so and I'm running full crit ~66% raid buffed.
TTT has more defensive value than Harrom's (more mastery) but I want to say Harroms is a bigger increase to dps (and consequently raid guards). I'd play with both, I'm running with TED and Harroms for H Garrosh progression personally since we need the damage to make the checks we've got in place for our strat (no Terrace phase and only one EWC).
I am heavily debating dropping 4 piece and using H WF gloves from Galakras over the tier now for H Garrosh. Looking at my logs I'm barely getting 500k healing out of some of our longer Garrosh attempts since I'm not purifying terribly often at all. Probably won't miss it though and it'll be a nice stat/armor bump (yay crit/master over haste/expertise).

Thanks Shyama for the awesome Signature
You think the multistrike and agil proc is more than 8% more crit damage and the strength proc? I thought the point of using TTT was more dps once you got fairly high crit levels.
That makes sense. I hadn't actually mathed it out since I didn't expect to get this trinket. I might go back to capping my crit at 50% unbuffed and then dumping mastery since we recently lost a heals and are 2-healing everything at this point and one of the heals was complaining about spikiness on Malk the other day. So then Harroms and TED for dps and TED and TTT for EH? Unless I need the Rook's Talisman for some mechanic.
Is it a bad thing to go with DW while being over the crit cap? I got 574 Immerseus staff and 566 Protectorst fist weapon and 566 Juggernaut mace. I prefer the looks of DW and smoother EB generation while it's not a big thing on these crit levels. I have ~60 % crit unbuffed.
