I'm an old paladin, but I guess that, like many, I always followed the masses. Template, gemming resilience, favoring crit instead of mastery ...
Today, with the new patch, I was wondering ... " What if ? " ... because anyway, I never really understood, in terms of maths, the impact some changes would have on the damage/survivability. Could you help me answer a few questions with precisions, in a BG / RBG point of view, more than arenas.
- Mastery vs Crit
Does someone have an idea, in terms of numbers, of what it would change in terms of healing/damage, between two players, one whose offstat is Crit, and the other one whose offstat is Mastery ?
Let's say tomorrow a player comes back to an old pure " Strength & PVP Power " gemming, instead of privileging Resilience over almost everything. Would the Strength & PVP Power make a REAL difference in his damage & healing output (let's say 20 % more, I don't know, part of the question ) ? Would the loss of resilience be a drama ?
Some might say I should try, but everytime I try something, I'm more hesitant reading the results compared to what I usually read here and there ... last one was the new SoJ compared to SoT ... my tests on a dummy were really bad for SoJ in terms of damage but that's not what I read, so I prefer to ask about my new wonderings
That's all, I was just wondering if a " Mastery + Strength/PVP Power " optimized ret would have a really larger damage/healing output compared to our classical " Crit & Resilience ", and if anybody has a vague idea of " how much " it could be in % ?
Thanks in advance !
