So, is HA still viable to use as retri or should i think about swapping to SW/DP?
Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.
SW adds more damage done to your total (single target) than HA ever can over a full fight, HA wins at short burst... simple as that, like it or not isn't relevant to the question of what's "best".
The "only way to go" my ass.
The dps difference between HA and SW is negligible (~500 - 1000 dps if everything's perfect). I say go for personal preference, because it's not really going to matter. The difference is a drop in the ocean.

T11 WR: 115, T12 WR: 45, T14 WR:44, T15 WR:37, T16: WR:28
with same rng for both and being able to execute the rotation with same comfortability for both talents (as i said i was attached to Zealotry/ HA playstyle with TV spams and needed and still need some time to adjust to SW) then the SW becomes a noticeable dps increase on all single target fights , and for sure not only 500-1000.
...But there is ofcourse the situational use of each talent , if you want to do jinhrok pools with HA gl, if you want to do spam AOE with SW gl too.
Also with current rng of the trinkets SW can offer an extra 10sec period of time where your trinkets can be up with obvious benefit.
Hey, kinda new with my ret pally. Im at ilvl 518 now, with my 2 piece t15. Never really used simcraft before, but read a guide today on it and tried it out.
Got this for my stat weights, just wondering if I did everything right. From all the things ive read, mastery should be above crit. But with those stat weights and using them, wants me to lose like 6.25% mastery to gain about 3.50% crit.
Just wondering if the stat weights of crit should be changing to that high at all for around my ilvl?
Crit sims above mastery, but in reality crit sucks. Simcraft should be taken with a grain of salt.
