I'm looking for a little advice here. Over the last couple of weeks I've been experimenting with talent combinations, reforges, etc, and no matter what I choose, I can't seem to produce numbers I'm satisfied with. I've been playing Enhance since Wrath and I frequently ranked during T14 progression including a dozen top 10s or so with far from BiS gear (no heroic weapons). So, I know what I'm doing, or at least, I did.
For T12 normals I used AS and glyphed PE for the most part, and I did okay but nowhere near what I could do (relative to the rest of the guild and to the world via ranks) just a few weeks ago. I've tried EM but it seems like that option only comes on top when the fight timing lines up in such a way that I can get a full 20 seconds every single time, and seems to kind of suck with the way the other CDs line up e.g., 2nd EM comes up when no other CDs are available and is thus not that great of a CD. I found the 10% haste all the time seemed to be better, but I don't know.
My gear is currently a hodgepodge of the crappy pieces which I took in desperation since our guild has seen only a handful of mail pieces lately, and I passed early on on tier gear because the T14 4pc was so much better compared to the 4pcs of the other specs. The T15 bonuses don't seem particularly enchanting, but they sim BiS, so last night I passed on two heroic thunderforged pieces on Jinrokh (the legs and the shoulders) because the sims show T15 4pc producing BiS numbers and I didn't want to take a 541 and then replace it with a 522 to pick up a 2pc set bonus.
Now we're doing Horridon heroic progression, and the fight's making me want to quit the game. I am usually 30k off of what I see from parses that have killed the boss. I know there's a big burn phase with increased damage (which we haven't reached yet), but what is frustrating me is that I'm usually 12th or lower in our 25m, and I'm used to being top 5, even on add pad fights. I went back to UF/EoTE for the CL/Fire Nova action on the big add packs, but it's still not producing for me. I can't seem to get higher than about 105, 110 by the last gate. Usually around 100. Part of the problem is that our tank is constantly dragging adds all over the place and it's very hard to chase down the target I just flame shocked, but part of it feels like the spec just sucks. Or I do. I don't know.
My item level is 518 but it got there mostly with sub-optimal pieces and I'm only running the T14 2pc bonus right now. I broke my T14 4pc without replacing it with a T15 2pc just so I could boost my item level since 502/509->522 on multiple pieces seemed like a better choice.
What's your experience this tier been so far? I'd love any advice you guys can share. What spec/reforge should I be using? The top parsers appear to be all over the place but I suspect that they're swapping spec/reforge per-fight.
