[Ret-PvP] Hit Rating

Postby Ceridwena » Sat Jul 11, 2009 10:10 am

The Search bar fails me, but forgive my probably repetitive thread. :|

I'm still relatively new to Ret in pvp, and finally changed my ret spec from pve friendly to pvp since I've managed to rack up over 700 resil. But, I've realized that I have all of 18 hit rating left over from pve gear I haven't replaced. I'm a Draenei, so I currently have about 1.55% hit and recently been noticing how often important abilities miss... like HoJ. I can throw the +20 hit enchant on my gloves, but otherwise I'm gemmed for pure resil and str+resil. Thoughts?
Tankadin, Destro Lock, and now a Tree with 100% more HoTs.

My thoughts are this: Run Wintergrasp. The items from Wintergrasp marks will give you more than enough hit rating.
Be careful when you argue with trolls, lest you become one.

1. Don't gem for resil. You're a DPS without MS. At best, your only resil gem should be the +20 resilience epic gem.
2. You NEED 5% hit.
3. Anything over 5% hit isn't exactly wasted, but it won't always be useful.

How to get 5% hit (in my general preferential order)
1. Neck/Cloak
2. PvE Gear
3. Gems
4. Wintergrasp
5. Enchants

Disclaimer on Above:
1. Higher item level almost always wins despite preference order.

Hmm i have to agree with you, in my PvP set i use the hit neck, (deadly) ring, and hit Cloak. This puts me at exactly 4%. and since i am a draenei = 5%. everything else is gemmed for pure str. hope it helps =]
