I really REALLY dislike the 4 piece. It's like here, let's give you 3 more arcane shots in a minute! The 2 PC would be 80k - 120k without factoring in BM's mastery.
112k - 168k with 40% mastery and that is without critting (presuming it can crit). Seems like the 2 PC can give more damage than the 4 PC >.>.
Presuming the Thunderhawk can crit.
2 pc: 1 proc yielding (80k-120k)-(160k-240k) damage (1333.3333 dps - 2000 dps) - (2666.66666667 dps - 4000 dps)
4 pc: 3 procs yielding 300% weapon damage. ~35k-70k damage a hit. 105k - 210k
2pc: .7 proc yielding (78k-117k)-(156k-235k) damage (1300 dps - 1950 dps) - (2600 dps - 3916.66666667 dps) (40% mastery)
4pc: 105k - 210k damage 1750 dps - 3500 dps
2pc: 1.2 procs yielding (96k-144k)-(192k-288k) damage (1600 dps- 2400 dps) - (3200 dps - 4800 dps)
4pc: 3 procs yielding 126k - 252k (20% mastery) (2100 dps - 4200 dps)
Of course if the thunderhawk can't crit then all this information is useless. With a 21 ilvl ranged weapon increase that would put the shots at ~40k-80k, so you'd only be getting 5k-10k more which would about tie it if the thunderhawk can crit.
The wording of the post seems a bit weird imo.
It doesn't say that you can crit or not but it will always cast it for 16k-24k nature damage. Meaning that it can't crit. Hopefully that's not true.Originally Posted by Ghostcrawler
