This is the current BiS list for boomkins in T14H gear (all raids). Numbers and gearset have been evaluated using WrathCalcs (http://elitistjerks.com/f73/t114017-balance_wrathcalcs/), and other spreadsheets/simulations may vary. This BiS list was last updated on 13/12/12.
*note*: please see THIS POST (http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...1#post19367488) for a major update to the T14H BiS list.
OVERALL STATS: 16647 Int, 24534 Spell power, 6105 Haste, 9836 Crit, 1361 Mastery, 5108 Hit
Just a few tid-bits:
- The Potent Vermilion Onyx used in the pants is because 1 int > 2 crit for around 60 int, then it dips below. Since we have way too much spirit on our gear overall, it's smarter to put the int/crit gem in the red socket instead of crit/exp, as the extra hit is unavoidable at this point. Extra hit becomes haste anyway, which is significantly below crit.
- Kri'tak with the prismatic socket, which is now confirmed via Eye of the Black Prince, is about 500 DPS ahead of Regail's because of the 320 crit you can get for free.
- The off-piece helm Hood of Stilled Winds was swapped for Fear-Blackened Leggings to maximise crit on each piece. The legs provide another socket, which is another opportunity for more crit.
- This list was evaluated without any upgrades. The items will not change. Gems/reforges will most likely be the only difference, and you'll need to assess that yourself as you upgrade pieces.
- Nature's Vigil is underrated on paper. In reality, you stack it best with other cooldowns and it pulls ahead of Heart of the Wild or Dream of Cenarius.
