I'll say one benefit we must keep in mind of the new tier is the TWO pieace which while similar have extreme differences. Firstly the new one does favor haste. 5% is not a small damage increase by any means and 6 second uptime with a 2.4-2.6 swing timer is pretty nice. Compare this to the exorcism one that you may not even notice when you are doing the HIGH RISK HolyTV favored WingsHammertime Spam.
4 Pieace T16 has the benefit of keeping single target damage rolling with DS as opposed to sitting on Holy TV procs and doing weak DS single target hits when AoE is needed.
I think we are going to have an interesting tier where DP / SW / T15 / and T16 ALL have a part to play in Siege at even the BEST gear levels for optimal damage output.
Yeah, I'll definitely be keeping my t15 4pce around to see how these fights pan out damage wise. Been picking up other off pieces, and I'll probably grab teir gloves as well.
They made some changes to heals, which caused the input lag in the raids. Hopefully its finally fixed....
First I'd like to thank all contributors in this thread to enlight freshly enrolled ret pal like me !
Then I couldn't find any accurate ressource on DP gameplay with 4T15 or 4T16 so I'd like to ask here :
When DP is up should I continue to store HP (unless DP proc is about to fade 1-2 sec) when possible or should I burn the proc asap ?
Same question with 4T16 proc should I burn the proc ASAP or should I just store HP when possible ?
My guildy Tanyn and I have been looking at Mastery and Haste stat weights currently and what we're wondering is how valuable is the 13th tick of SW compared to how effective the extra mastery would be? He checked stat weights and we've come to see 70% mastery approx and 21% haste as i recall with reforging and regemming to mastery.
There would be more downtime yes but would the overall mastery gain outweigh the haste loss?
So thanks for all the hard works guys and girls, I always check here to see what the 'cutting edge' folks are looking at doing, I guess looking forward to next tier, have we decided on a rough haste figure to be looking at before we start switching to mastery, ofc i know it depnds on drops as well, but as i stand as a normal mode raider and at about 36% haste unbuffed, my rotation is pretty smooth, procs seem preety good as well
atb this point should i start looking at mastery, or maybe keep pushing haste as well, in know balancing them is what is probably best, but have decided on a rough figure where haste becomes a stat loss in comparison to mastery yet ?
Thanks for any help you can give
Honestly im too lazy to go back a few pages and read random drama so I'll ask in the slight chance of being called a retard and looking back a few pages
With 5.4 and feather nerf, should we be using either VP trinket or Spark in combination of Prim next Tuesday or leave as is and pray to replace first week with new tier trinket

Thank you Solsacra and Anaxie for clarifying the DP gameplay
