Should I stay Pandaren for Elemental or go Draenei?
Should I stay Pandaren for Elemental or go Draenei? I want the biggest DPS increase. I do love the benefits Pandas get, like less damage falling, there fat and cool looking, and there dance is awesome, plus 300 extra intellect. Either way, do you think the 1% is better for Elemental?
It's a different class, but as my monk geared up I found I was swimming in hit and expertise, and had to reforge out of it; I imagine all classes are the same. If that's true then switching to a Draenei will only be beneficial for a while, and beyond that point you'll find yourself constantly over the hit cap.
If a couple hundred dps (at most!!) is worth considering coughing up $25 (or €20 / £15) to you, then you should stay Pandaren. (If not, then obviously stay Pandaren.) It takes somewhere around 2 to 4 hit rating to equal 1 Int (it's pretty much 3 secondary-stat to 1 Int for all our stats, with spirit [a.k.a. hit, expertise] being worth more to the hit cap and nothing past it). Therefore, pandas are marginally better than space goats ... even if you only eat +250 Int food at 90.
It seriously doesn't matter.
I think Draenei are best mathematically, but by a margin that small that player error catches up with it within a few seconds in the fight.
I must say I'm surprised you forgot Dwarf, though. Considering the best MH atm is a mace, Dwarf racial is as good as Draenei's (+the defensive CD).
