    I guess you mean 75 (or above) energy before Lunar. The reason is as simple as extra Starfall and NG uptime. Before pull you prepot at 2sec, pop Starfall at 1sec before pull and then queue a Wrath right after. That means you got a fresh Lunar with NG and procs up that make the best available scenario to use your Inc+NV talents.

    I use this tactic on feng (1 cast from solar) because it gives me perfect timing to use aoe with solar eclipsed sunfires/hurricane while incarnation/NV is up during shield phase, not much anywhere else (yet) really.

    You're going to have a hard time finding a 160int/160crit one.

    Also always check for perfect cuts of the uncommon gems, they may be cheaper for the same stats.

    EDIT: you're over the hit cap by a fair margin Muddy, you should try the following gemming strategy and reforge accordingly imo.
    Red: +160Int / +160crit (Potent Vermillion Onyx)
    Yellow: +320 Crit (Smooth Sun's Radiance)
    Blue: +160Spirit / +160 Crit (Misty Wild Jade)

    how is it now? i changed to AMR.ROBOT build and weights
    6k haste and 8.8k crit.

    The third Starfall, yeah, and also that you waste the NG proc if you go all the way to Lunar in advance.

    Hey All,

    Hopping to see if anyone has some advice for Tsulong in ToES on 25m. I am pulling low dps because of the high movement we are doing. RL called resetting stacks at 8-10 and I was more around 10-12 while still being the second to last person on damage taken from it. I also give Symbiosis to tank for the defensive CD but considering if I should use it on our Resto shammy for Spiritwalkers Grace? Any advice would be appreciated, thank you.

    Logs-
    Cant post links since I dont have a post count? >.< if you could look them up thank you again. Sorry

    Pretty sure Boomkins get Purge from shamans. It's restos that get SwG. Your best bet would be a DK for AMS and ignore some of the fear zones or a warlock/rogue.

    My haste is only 2200ish but my crit is over 21% (Stacked crit completely).

    Is that the way to go?

    Armory?

    /10

    Edit: guess you are http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...atank/advanced

    You can change 3 yellow gems and 1 hybrid gem to haste ones, and with reforging from wowreforge.com , you can reach the 5273 breakpoint. It's a lot of gem change and some people don't recommend it so it's up to you.

    Yup that's me, couldn't post a link to my armory so thanks for doing it.

    Yeah, after reading many guides of experienced Moonkins, I just went a full crit build and I think I should stay with that. Thanks once again!

    Honestly most tank defensive cooldowns are trash and not worth whatever resource they need to use to activate it, so you probably should look at a cooldown for yourself. (Just as shadow priest tranquility is equally as shit.)

    ?? Unless something has changed, the only arguably useless one is Savage Defensive for a warrior because they don't have the rage for shield barrier and SD. Deathknights get last stand (Ursoc), Paladins get Barkskin, and Monks get Shield Wall. These are all pretty amazing.

    They are watered down versions, and at least for paladins, I believe they have other abilities to spend Holy Power on that are more useful.

    Hey there man, just curious if there is anything I could be doing to push a little more single target DPS in terms of when I refresh my dots or any rotation things you can spot.

    Thanks!

    Armory : http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...urkey/advanced The haste gem in my chest and belt is to reach the 5273 breakpoint cleanly.
    Feng 10 Normal Parse (Yeah I know it's normal, other alts in the guild aren't as geared yet): http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/r...?s=6989&e=7251

    Ignore the Heroic Sha log in there, the guy logging forgot to split main raid off. There's also some logs from a few other 10 Normal bosses but I'm pretty sure Feng is where I played best.

    You would probably be better off by asking Bombermang. He knows how you do all the fights and where should stand to minimize movement.

    DPS Help plz

    I've been frustrated in Pandaria, my dps has dropped dramatically, but either way I've managed to raiding. My gear is 488 and I have better pieces but I wanted to reach the bonus 4 piece T12. With reduced speed, which implies that, my dps has dropped. The rotation I use is rather standard. Arranco prepot, with a single shot from eclipse, in Solar Lunar phase, using a one use Starfall and Wrath to reach the eclipse, Incarnation and Nature Use Virgil, the trinket of dominance, use clones if I have, and it started dps , use Starfall, Starfire and with Starsurge when available. Use solar eclipse reached Astral Alignment, use Starfall, Starfire and use refresh Dots and Starsurge until just before the end of the lineup, where dots and I drink with Wrath until the next lunar eclipse, throw and use the 4th starfire Starfire and rotations Starsurge normal, then wrath for solar eclipse and moon came again, repeat when available.
    Still, I fail to raise the average 60K dps on my gear, and instant Starsurge not leave much for my critical is 21%.

    Can you help me improve that dps, in fact I became a magician and I'm playing with a lot because I frustrated.

    regards

    Mastiffbull at us ragnaros

    I'm sorry but what on earth are you trying to say? You need to explain your situation a lot better than that, I'm afraid.
