What about crafted leatherworking leg? Isn't this suppose to be bis till heroic?
I don't get why so many think Ebon Detonator is BiS? Wouldn't Haromm be better? That is 12k Agility for 10 seconds and you have a chance to deal a third of the damage you dealt extra. Compared to Ebon Detonator which is overall 10690 Agility over 10 seconds and extra Mastery. Since I don't see the Ebon Detonator being able to max DPS since you don't know exactly when it procs so you can't line up your attacks for it. While with Haromm you got more steady Agility overall. The extra damage on Haromm has also a high proc chance.
On a related note about weird news from simming 5.4 hunter dps, it appears that for SV, FD is modeling Powershot as a significant dps gain over Glaive Toss (~5k dps), especially with Haromm's. Multistrike pairs very well with this powerful shot in simulation.
Additionally, for SV, the Reserve Bow is BiS by ~6k dps over the Hand Cannon, because of how poorly SV scales with mastery. For BM FD sims, the Hand Cannon is slightly ahead of the Reserve Bow (~500 dps). For this reason, the Reserve Bow is best for people who want to switch between BM and SV.
i was meaning to ask about powershot actually.. since the cooldown is greater, isn't it more unlikely that it'll be the shot to proc MS.. and even if it does, isn't it avg'd out neways.. doesn't matter if you hit 10 attacks for 100 dmg each in a given period compared to 100 attacks that do 10 dmg each ? Dunnu why it would show a 5k dps boost.. What does simc say ?
Also, how is ebon only 500 dps above haromm ? Having it not proc from your pet would be a huge crutch wouldn't it.
So every day I hear a different answer on whether the Garrosh bow can be upgraded or not. Bashiok says they can in a tweet ( https://twitter.com/Bashiok/status/377126486714482688 ) but others say guildies got them and they couldn't.
Has anyone been able to get one themselves to confirm?
Okay, found some evidence here from perculia at wowhead. Definitely not upgradeable http://www.wowhead.com/forums&topic=...as-upgradeable

bashiok has been dead wrong numerous times in the past
I confirm that Garrosh drop weapon is 561ilvl and cannot be upgraded
Just got my Leggings of Unbashed Anger heroic drop from Norushen. Trying to debate if its worth keeping them and losing my 4 set.
I have warforged gloves from Juggernaut. and dropped my tier gloves to keep use them.
Did a sim with FD, and dropping my 4 set in favour of the higher gear legs + gloves nets roughly a 500dps increase. I just wanted to check if it would possibly be better to keep the 4pc tier 15. Do note that the gloves push me almost up to 10% exp (no way to get it lower) where as keeping the off piece gloves and legs keep me at 7.95% exp.
Additionally, as the legs are blue socket, should I gem for the bonus, or just go with flat agility? I don't really need the hit from blue gems, so I could just use stam gems for extra health. Any advice is welcome
The BoA bow is already upgraded but only on the same ilevel as an upgraded normal weapon.
Have anyone simmed the trinkets?
Does anyone know how big of a difference it is between Ticking Ebon Detonator HC and Haromm's Talisman HC?
I've heard that maybe Mastery will surpass Haste when we're full BiS as BM/Surv, which would explain why sims are putting crit / mastery gear ahead of crit / haste maybe?
I've ran a lot of sims, before the toth fix on simc and after.
Haromm is the better option with assurance when you are playing SV.
Ticking is the better option with assurance when you are playing BM.
The reasoning is pretty straight forward due to the majority of our damage as SV benefits from Haromm.
As for BM not even half our damage benefits from the haromm trinket, so ticking is better for BM.
