Going to extend this thread for 5.4 because I can. But what shall replace magnificent?
Totally Awe-Inspiring? Breathtaking? Overwhelming?
Was thinking of removing theorycraft from name so ppl don't run in here crying that half stuff midtier isn't serious. Prolly won't though they can just post comments while I sit here amused.
Think at this point though THIS is the ret lounge. no?
Hopefully the next build or 2 puts gear and stats out and the weapon procs/ trinket mechanics. My favorite part of the PTR
I wanted to follow up on something that I believe Solscara posted a few pages back in regard to Haste / Mastery "Breakpoint" - I'm currently standing at about 16228 Haste, 38.88% Mastery (~540 ilvl with 549 Bo-Ris & Cloak, was lucky enough to obtain both just last week). I've run my sims and Haste is about .4 - .6 ahead of mastery, so at a glance it certainly seems a no brainer to keep that gemming/reforging 100% haste.
Straight haste certainly seems to be the most popular choice up in the 540+ Ilvl range as I check out Anaxie, Rvvo, Bairdy, etc.'s setups - has anyone really seen any substantial difference / feel in a mastery build? The main reason I ask is that I'm typically at/near top DPS (obviously depending on fight, but at/near top amongst our melee group) but I feel like I can & should be doing more. Guild is still progressing so I know a portion of that ("lack" of dps) can be attributed to familiarity/comfort level with each boss. Would love some feedback - I was shocked to see the rankings Solscara was able to obtain in a mastery build.
Oh and Anaxie -- Awe-Inspiring for sure!

I got that sweet jinrok ring yesterday lol, still haven't seen a shared wep drop. Still using tforged uroe at 548 ilvl man

Still praying for a TF wep, tbh even a normal heroic uroe or shared weapon would go a long way atm, so much lost stats zzz.
Maybe I missed this somewhere in the post. but I just need to know this. During burst rotation we go How,CS, TV. ( unless I misunderstood forgive me). With the 2 piece set and exorcism increasing damage would that change the rotation a little, or is it still better not to use exorcism during burst phase. I know CS is a must because of the increase to Tv. Just not sure what to do with the Exorcism if anything. Please help a fellow paladin out.
I'll just link in OP to patch lauch. Other then that what really needs to be looked through and read? My random observation's aren't all that important. Another huge portion will prolly be dedicated to the 3000 hit weapon we get as the only alternative prio to heroic garrosh Gorehowl and a random drop weapon all with TF combinations. Excuse me "Bloodforged" must stay then in first legion tier Felforged!!!!!!
Atleast we can go into the patch with a little knowledge. If we see very few "drop source" weapons it may be time to bitch this tier wasn't exactly balanced on a 2H weapon drop PoV.
Non drop source trinkets / weapons will obv be Random. unsourced belts/accessories obviously are going to be trash only with H equivalents on BMAH and not realistic to put into BIS list. Lets keeps this idea when items launch and bosses itemized.
I'm sure someone will peep up rings, belts, ect. could be random loot too! But those are far easily swapped out compared to trinket data. Weapons prolly be a big deal because i BET we see unique procs on multiple class weapons to come. Get ready for some interesting weapons.
Also by multiple i mean several 2H options with seperate procs. Garrosh prolly will EASILY have the BiS in corrupted Gorehowl sadly. I bet the axe even ends up as a slow weapon. AKA Ultra mega RNG for BiS weapon since THAT is the one that must TF.
Pretty likely "launch" will go off with VP upgrades making normal mode drops 562 Ilvl and vastly superior.
Why not the HoW, Exo, Cs, then Tv? Or is that to much extra stuff because of the Cd of HoW?
With SW you get HoW > HPGen > HoW > TV > HoW > HPGen > HoW > TV.
Is 2/2 heroic blade lord ring better than the regular Primordius ring with a 2/2 upgrade if the hit is completely unused?? My other ring right now is the VP one and I am at 15k haste if that matters at all.
