Okay, so hopefully someone can shed some light on this subject.
I've been bouncing back and forth between reforges and regems for awhile now, and ive hit what probably will be near optimum for my raiding group until the next patch (ilvl 535) so im trying to settle my stats.
I've run a simcraft, and the stat weight results between doing 10k iterations are rather different then doing a 25k iteration run.
So let me just ask some flat questions.
for Destruction, is 10% mastery going to do exactly that 5% more damage then 5% crit?
If chaos bolt is boosted by a flat percentage of mastery then why am i not just looking for whatever reforge brings me the higher percentage of the two numbers?
I've been using ask mr robot and entering in custom weights but they seem to change from one extreme to another so quickly and i feel like im wasting gold without some solid information.
If it helps this is my current setup:
and i just got tier 15 robe, so was looking to swap that out. (upgraded to 530).
Also, as an aside. Does anyone have any kind of solid impression of what 4piece tier set bonus is worth? I have the tier gloves but have a thunderforged gloves in the slot so am leaning tward thinking ill just do without 4 piece unless i can get a shoulder tier drop (which has eluded me so far). The bonus seems kinda crappy anyway.
