I have been thinking about going to the NEXT haste breakpoint, as with ilvl 570 gear I am finding staying only at the 10289 BP is getting harder and harder.
I have simed that it is a DPS loss to do so... but that is sim patchwork fight. and as a utility oriented boomkin - SoO it is FAR from that.
I find that very often I am the person that does a lot of the running around tasks that make kills happen, but lowers that players 'performance'. (running across map to CR, soaking pools/rifts, making sure to reveal assassin adds, shifting into bear to soak mines, throw out some heals ect)
This means that sometimes NG does expire before next eclipse for me.
Wondering if pushing to the next haste breakpoint would be an in practice dps increase with all the extra movement + allowing better reaction to SS procs.
my stats would change from to
Intellect 32051 32145
Stamina 42669 42669
Mastery 46.99% 39.30%
Spell Power 52100 52204
Spell Hit 14.98% 15.12%
Crit 42.32% 37.95%
Haste 49.99% 64.42%
anyone have thoughts about a *practical* usage of the 64% haste BP?
no.. just simply no.
I ran with it at the start of 5.4 in ToT gear and regardless of the loss of other stats, being over the GCD cap is plain dumb and wasteful. That much haste isn't fun to play.
The only real practical usage you can get from it is if you're not going to be using any nukes for NG every time.. so if it's spamming dots for 15s (7 targets) every time or maybe hurricane.. but even then, I still don't think it would be very practical.
