At this point I'd be happy to get even the LFR Feather. This game is really hating this tier when it comes to str trinket and 2h weapon drops, lol.
tell me about it. I got LFR feather and LFR Zermat (council sword). I actually had to get the valor gloves from Celestials because I had the hit gloves from LFR MsV. I've now got my hit and expertise caps, but only because I used a haste/stam gem in my helm.
Should Speed of Light for those tornadoes. I find it to be full of much win. Can focus more on DPSing while running at those kinds of speeds through the tornadoes with the odd judgment and such still firing at the boss. Of course it would be nice to just get Stampeding Roar each time but the druids in my guild are, shall we say, not as reliable as I would like. If you want something done right, do it yourself
Fuck that bubble and walk right through it then spin and start chaining wraths from symbiosis like a boss. You should get 7 ish casts off jaja.
so i have some questions on when best to use Execution Sentence and how long to delay it.
how long should i delay ES to line it up with GOAK? right now im delaying it a max of ~20 seconds and only when i have 20 stacks
how long should i delay ES to line up with Avenging Wrath? right now i delay it if AV is off CD but not if its on CD
how long should i delay ES to line up with Fabled Feather of Ji-Kun?
how long should i delay ES to line up with Spark of Zandalar?
also currently i am a JC/BS and am thinking of going Engineering/BS, i currently am progressing through normal with plans to for heroic progression asap (we are still filling out raid team) in 5.2 as well as 5.3 and am trying to get the most i can out of my pally. i currently have Spark of Zandalar, Fabled Feather of Ji-Kun (both 522) so i will not be locked out of any on use trinkets. what do you all think, is it worth losing all the JC stuff and spending the gold to go Engineering? or is there a better profession to replace JC with/should i keep JC?
thanks for the help =D
Chaining Wraths eh? Never considered that. Will try that next week. Chances are the feral will give me symbiosis for bubble. Usually I'm not one to use my bubble on things that can be avoided (fps lag not withstanding) but if it'll lead to a DPS increase, sign me up
basically, what you want to do is maximize the AP you have when casting ES. this means that sometimes, it's better to delay ES so you get more from it later, and sometimes it's better to cast it before feather has stacked to full, for example, because you're about to lose a spell that would give you more AP than the remaining stacks of feather would give you.
rule of thumb: if you're certain you're getting a spark proc in the next 7 seconds (can monitor stacks for it), or if feather is already stacking, it's fine to delay it.
math: it does about 3X your AP (technically 6X your SP) in damage with an additional 13K. it has a 60 second CD. so it does 300% of AP + 13K every 60 seconds. expressed in DPS, that's 5% of AP + 200. so for every 5% of AP that you would gain, you can delay it for another second (within reason of course). if you have 40K AP, you can delay it for 2K AP per second. this is less than what feather gives per stack, so delaying ES until feather is stacked to max is always beneficial. spark gives 7.3K STR, or 15K AP, so ES can be delayed for 7 seconds if you are certain Spark will proc in that time. I also think that it's okay to lose a cast of ES through multiple delayings, but I don't know for sure. If someone else can do the math for this, i'd be delighted.
edit: I keep having the idea that there's something wrong with my math, but I can't put my finger on it exactly.

JC is also really bad since you want to gem haste in most sockets, JC only gives 480haste on the special ones so you're forced to go with 320 str which is a loss compared to any other profession.
This is probably a retarded question but, does GoAK and Execution Sentence take a snapshot of your stats??
Guys, quick question. haven't been lucky at all with trinkets this tier but got the lfr feather, replaced it with 2/2 normal MSV trinket and now i'm not sure about the second trinket slot, Should i pick 522 VP trinket, 2/2 relic or 2/2 normal MSV trinket into the second slot. Feather is still kind of a sick so i will def keep that one over any of the trinkets i have atm, but have a dilemma about the second slot.
If it helps by statwise then armory link is here aswell. eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/outland/M%C3%A4thew/simple
Exp cap seems okay but still not sure what to use, VP trinket or 2/2 MSV normal one. damn thoughts !
