I feel like as always, it is going to come down to what th actual player is comfortable with.
So as i am a Marksmanship hunter, my gems are like this :
Red : Agility ( 2x 320 Agility JC gems)
Blue : 80 AG and 160 crit ( or somethng with 160 crit )
Yellow : 80 AG and 160 Crit ( something something crit )
Since AG is my main stat , and Crit is my best secondary stat for Marksman , this should be fine now ?
I went from 55% PvP Power to 37% PvP power with full gemming. Took out the gems and i got 35% left..seems abit stupd all these gems for 1-2%..
But this is the way to go now ? So for a enha shaman it is mostly AG/ Haste ? And for other characters it is the same right ? ( Main + Secondary stat )
Ayy, it's me dude, the one and only.
So I play a Mistweaver. I tested two different gemming strategies. Dueling the same person for each test.
Pure Int +160 in red sockets and belt buckle
Potent Vermilion Onyx +80 Int/+160 Critical Strike in yellow sockets
Purified Imperial Amethyst +80 Int/+160 Spirit in blue sockets
With this strategy, non-crit SM with 35.82% PvP Power from gear and no battle fatigue (45%) I was healing for 100k on average. Now with the 45% added battle fatigue my non-crit SM was healing for 54k on average.
Mysterious Imperial Amethyst +80 Int/+80 PvP Power in all red
Radiant Wild Jade +160 Critical Strike/+80 PvP Power in all yellow sockets
Stormy River's Heart +160 PvP Power in all blue sockets and belt buckle (and 1 yellow socket due to that bonus not being PvP Power)
With this strategy, non-crit SM was healing for 100k on average. With 38.82% PvP Power and 45% battle fatigue my non-crit SM was healing for 62k on average.
The difference in healing done is roughly +8k with gemming PvP Power.
So this is what I'm going to stick with. In 5.2 I sat at about 65% resilience and had great survivability so at this point there is no reason for me to gem for resilience.
Hope this helps.
As ret ill be gemming haste
red: str + haste
blue: power + haste
When 5.0 came out there was someone doing Graphs like how PvP power does damage compared to Pure Stats or how long you live with Resilience as opposed to Stamina.
Is there Graphs lie these for 5.3 aswell?
