    This is actually a great suggestion. I've thought of something like it before and I'm sure it's been suggested on the forums. Thing is that I can see it maybe causing too many issues for a glyph in terms of making mobs untargetable at certain times or immune to damage and so on.

    Good news everyone, I was on 499 ilvl this morning and lucked out, I got my legs off Durumu LFR. Also got enough VP to buy the VP ring because it'll be my BiS til Ra'den which I will definitely not be seeing. Up to 504 now and I can upgrade some gear later when I earn the rest of my VP. Unfortunately, Spark and the belt off Jinrohk won't drop for me Neither will the chest token off DA or Primo ring. Will plough on.

    Also, my OT on Horridon was not great and I tanked a few adds whilst taking the boss full time. Did 165k dps without any trouble, got a 970k SHOTR crit Looking at how my vengeance would increase in a "real raid" (ooo, controversial) I can't wait to see high numbers. Although I'd do that sorta thing on all the bosses I guess... But that 504 ilvl means I can finally join pugs that put that as an arbitrary boundary. So stupid but hey, needs must, and I didn't sacrifice anything to get it.

    That can be done with timed macroes, but that is frowned upon sadly.

    I would still be able to prefer to place it wherever we want, just like the DK DnD though, not like the glyph. It being targeted on an enemy is not that great if that enemy is on range running towards you, since then only half the consecration would hit it. If instead place it infront of the enemy you got 100% more uptime on it before it moves out of it.

    Am I the only one who hardly ever/never uses this glyph?

    I feel like we've got so many more useful tools to pull a mob/mobs to us than dropping a cons near them. Esp since that means, as FF pointed out, that they'll just aggro and then run OUT of the cons...

    I just use J/AS/taunt to grab what's needed. Currently, HPr is also functioning as a ghetto "AOE taunt" by aggroing all surrounding mobs when cast, as well.

    I tried using the Cons glyph once, but the fact that I had to press Consecrate, then click the placement just drove me insane. I don't even like using LH because of that. Even when I use LH I only use it sparingly throughout a fight because it's an annoyance in the rotation at 18k haste.

    Yeah, I have not even learned the glyph , just saying that IF I did, I would prefer ground targeted that actually worked over mob targeted.

    ToT Valor ring/trinket (expertise one) are both really good.

    Yep, that extra step of the reticule really pisses me off. To the point that I haven't used it since entry heroic 5mans.

    The extra step of the reticule on LH AND the 1.5 sec GCD makes me REALLY angry too. Theck posted about it on his blog, which seems to garner some Blue attention, so maybe they'll follow through with the reversion of the non-hasted GCD on SS and LH. Someone mentioend that it was fixed on PTR, but not seen it cofirmed and I keep forgetting to check.

    Hey guys! I've been wondering something, are the Heroic Thunderforged crit/haste gloves better than a normal pair of primo gloves? i'd guess they are but i want a second opinion. seeing as i ended up getting them last night ( We didin't have any melee, it went straight to me ^.^ ).

    Thanks!

    Normal as in 522? Umm....duh? If it's 535 vs 541, it's a bit less clear cut.

    As it is now, I'm using 549 Primo gloves, but reforged out of hit and STILL over hit cap. Unless you NEED the hit, use Rein Binder's and reforge as needed.

    Umm...Why? Most of our BIS pieces are Crit/Haste.

    I'm quite curious as to what pieces are BiS of ours that are Crit/Haste, can I have a link?

  16. #3576
    Unless you're going for 2/4pc, our BIS items with Crit/Haste would be:
    Tortos Shoulders
    Animus Helm
    IQ Gloves (pending your hit situation)

    RaDen boots are on the list as well, which have Crit.
    Some rings are up for debate, but you're likely to keep the VP ring until well into HC progression (since only Primo and RaDen have >522 rings with haste).

    Crit is NOT bad. It's not the devil, and any Prot worth their salt would recommend you pick up a Haste/Crit item over anything with avoidance on it. We're already (usually) swimming in Hit, too, so even Hit/Mastery pieces are kind of a waste. We have more than enough mastery innately to survive anything, so while Mastery is a great stat, it's not one that we need to stack.

    So, since Mastery is a bit redundant, and avoidance is a bit...well, shit... that leaves Crit as the main option for this tier.

    In 5.4 we can look into bumping up avoidance once haste/hit/exp capped to help fish for more GC procs, as I suspect many (esp 25) raiders will do. 10 will still be a personal choice about crit, as it will always be the best throughput stat for us behind haste.

    Depending on what you're looking for... 608 Cloak and Ra-den chest are both very attractive items that have crit on them.

    Also that.

    RaDen (and DA) once again juked my coin. Still no Conq EVER from DA, and still not one piece of plate, EVER from RaDen in our raid. Ugh...

    Should join a 25m and get all kinds of loot :P

    But then I'd have to raid the "hard" format (CWUTIDIDTHAR)

    We used to be 25, but then our GM quit and our "core" took it upon ourselves to make the hard cuts that he didn't want to.

    Sadly, our roster just lost 2 of our best ranged, so we're sitting at 8-9 ppl now... No bueno going into a new tier Need to figure something out.

    WTB 13/13 25m that needs like...9 good players. Or 8 good players and a wiseass Prot Pal.
