This is the current BiS list for boomkins in T15H gear. 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 24/05/13.
*note*: this list is valid as of 5.3 release.
Oh look pretty colours (trinket comparison): http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...1#post20993459
OVERALL STATS: 20780 Int, 32162 Spell power, 10350 Haste, 16635 Crit, 3327 Mastery, 5081 Hit
CAPS: 19 under hit cap, 54 over GCD cap
Just a few tid-bits:
- 2x Crit is slightly above Int, meaning all red sockets should have int/crit gems and all yellow gems should have pure crit/haste gems. Blue sockets will still always have crit/spr or crit/hit. Exp/crit gems would *technically* be better for red sockets, but we really have too much spirit to contend with at this point in the expansion. Next tier we may be going back to mostly int gems due to SS proc waste/haste GCD cap.
- Blizzard is reinstating upgrades in 5.3. This BiS list is evaluated with 2/2 upgrades in mind.
- When comparing items, please use Engineering/Tailoring for comparative purposes. Also set your race to Worgen and SS proc waste to 0.2.
- 5.3 brings about big changes to FoN, making it the best single-target talent. Incarnation will be better for multi-target fights mostly due to FoN being dumb when switching targets and not scaling with multi-target fights. Currently, we don't know what fights call for what talent, but http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...1#post20920799 and below gives a little more insight on the choices.
Again, if anyone would like to contribute to this list, please post constructively and back up your post with maths! Idly arguing a point without proving yourself wont get you anywhere. Remember to use WrathCalcs, upgrade your gear and use Force of Nature/Heart of the Wild for comparison purposes.
Anyway, feel free to comment on this as well. I'm always up for testing out anything new you guys come up with!
Also, I must have a few transcription errors somewhere here - feel free to point them out, so others don't get confused.
