Question regarding pre RoR. I now got a 4pc and every sim I read (AMR and Simcraft) both keep telling me to have haste spewing from all ends. Yet I see people who gem mastery, reforge mastery have over 4% mastery rating and then I have sims telling me that it's a DPS loss to go that route. So confused.

This will target the closest Humming Crystal and cast CJL. You only need one tick to proc the bubble. Pro tip, if the raid is already set to heroic before the trash before the boss, you can use the Crystals to mitigate the damage from the trash.
The three talents I use for this fight (four if you want) is Leg Sweep, Dampen harm, Rushing Jade Wind, and Chi Burst. Leg Sweep to stun the bats when the tank needs it. You can use Dampen harm and Touch of Karma to basically mitigate every stomp; thus never loosing the bubble. The only time you may loose it would be the rock falls. A good suggestion there is start on one side (left in my guilds strat) and work your way to the right, thus less likely to spawn near by the end of the rock fall. And of course Rushing Jade Wind and maybe Chi Burst for AOEing the bats. In our kill tonight I got 27th on the fight without the need for Chi Burst but AoE like a Mother****er (earlier attempts I was doing better but still averaging 200k+ on the attempts).
On an unrelated note, sad to see your guildy Monkxx stop raiding. I liked the guy.
Ehem. That being said, haste is our best stat up to the GCD cap(~22-25%) in my opinion. That's what my spreadsheet tells me, and that's what my WOL rankings tell me. 2Pc T15 knocks this cap down about 4%, and it wiggles a little based on how often you use Fists of Fury.
Who in particular is gemming mastery? I'll take a look and see if I can figure out why.
Zivh: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte.../Zivh/advanced (I assume he does this because of RoR?)
So is it even worth it to sim anything?
It's worth simming so that you can get a comparison of how you are doing in raids vs. a standard simulation benchmark. I'm just not very confident in how SimC calculates relative stat weights, since monks are so haste sensitive. Also keep in mind that SimC is benchmark encounter that doesn't exist anymore (patchwerk), and you are most likely using your GCDs for things other than DPS.
All I can say about people that stack mastery is that maybe they are more comfortable with a slower rotation, or like seeing huge numbers when you go TEB super saian. Haste has been shown to improve DPS more than mastery or crit up to a comfort level. I know that I am dialing back my haste a bit simply because it felt too button mashy.
Axon do not have RoR at obviously prefer Mastery over critt. Which could be right if he is good/great with handling tigereye.
Zivh is just gemming mastery to give him more secondary stats to play with. If you check his ratings he have ~haste softcap then mastery full out. And critt right behind his mastery.
It doesnt really matter if he gem mastery/critt there since all it does is giving him more secondary stats. Those gems could be haste/critt too if you just reforge like you should.
hello fellow monks.
i would like some help if there's some gentle soules around. i'm in a bit of a dilemma, i've aquired the 2 handed staff from horridon. and atm. i got raid finder HoF fist
fully upgraded + gems, and mogu shan heroic fist fully upgraded. would the two handed be an upgrade? - or is 2handed still far behind from dw?.
Also, here's my armory ''chaòz on zenedar eu. ( cannot post links since im new in here sowwy :3)'' if you got any tips or reforging/gemming i would be glad to hear them.
best regards maddix
From that thread.
A good way to look at it is for every 4 itm lvls ur OH is lower than ur MH subtract 1 from your weapon ilvl.
so 483-463 = 20 divided by 4 = 5 brings ur dual wield ilvl to 478.
*edit* also in terms of the legendary gem not sure if you are able to aquire it yet but it typically counts for 2-3 ilvls making any upgrade surpass it now that you cant upgrade gear anymore.
Weapon dps is a ww's greatest upgrade
I know this is probably just common sense, but you only want to use 10 stack TEB when you have some sort of proc right? Unless of course you are at 19 stacks in which case an unbuffed TEB would be better than capping and wasting TEB stacks. Also should one sit on Energizing Brew to sync with TEB or just use EB whenever possible?
Not sure if this is the Optimal way of doing it but it has given me the best results and the smoothes plays.
On the damage done page that shows the raid, if you click the drop down arrow beside a player it will show if they used Xuen. Otherwise on their own analysis page you'll be able to see if they used torpedo or RJW.
Can someone help me out with dps?
