Did you read the first post or the post before your one? Both mention HotR > CS, as does the actual rotation post.

Question:

The Mastery is some kind of joke?!

If i think about End Game. Why should i increase Mastery if i only get block? Isnt the way like in WoTLK, get Mastery until block capped, then reduce mastery and increase dodge and parry?

For Warriors and Druids its a other thing, they should increase Mastery. Warrior get more critical block and druids more absorb, so what did we get?

On a side note you should probably re-glyph avenger's shield for bosses because now you can reglyph anytime anywhere as long as you got vanishing powder which is like fifty silver. A thirty percent increase is a pretty significant increase in threat, for something that can easily be swapped out.

It's counterintuitive, but you may not want to trade mastery for avoidance. It has to do with spikiness of damage intake.

What works best for you may not work for someone with a different raid or healing corps.

Hmm but where is the sense?

Example:

I reach the blockcap with 40% block, 21% parry and 21% dodge. Why should i increase the masteryrating? The better way is to increase parry and dodge, so that i get on the end f.e. 34% block, 24% parry and 24% dodge.

For Warriors and Druids its a other point, in cause of they have a good effect if they incrase masteryrating.

Hope its understandable.

So f.e. it was an idea to give us damage on block again and with higher masteryrating the damage we cause with block increase.

once you reach block cap ofcourse you are gonna go for dodge or parry, but i think the point of increasing your mastery first is to reach it, because point for point its really cheap to increase block rating through mastery. and according to the latest beta build its three percent instead of two and the bas amount is a lot higher too lol.

My Advanced FAQ is linked form my sig. Of course, it doesn't exist yet.

Towell-e-i-e-i-o's YouTube Channel Lots of Beta videos of level 85 content and mechanics. Good for getting a feel for what we're facing in December. Remember it's beta - older vids will be of obsolete mechanics. He's also having to make a lot of stuff up before the MATLAB was done.

4.0.1 Mastery/reforging guide If you want the details of how to reforge you gear for raiding ICC/Halion at level 80, check out this thread.

Theck's 4.0 Talent & Glyph guide The Canonical Source for talent & glyph weighting.

Theck's MATLAB & pounding headaches post. Go here for a migraine.


More links to come once we have more 4.0 content up - Basic FAQ appears to be one of the earlier major pieces since I rushed to get it out for 4.0.1


Thanks for the look out man I really Appreciate it. I'm updating every night. And now with the HOTR news I am going to go with that for tomorrows ICC HM 25 raid.

One basic question that might go into a FAQ is what opening moves to make during a pull. I suggest Exo>J>AS>HotR (or CS)>1HPoSoR>Cons and then go to 939 rotation.

I've opened a discussion thread on this, but would welcome more feedback and discussion:

I don't really see the "HotR hits harder than CS" I just tested it on a dummy (which isn't easy, since HotR gives two hits) and my CS was hitting for 1900-2000 while HotR was hitting for 1650-1800 (rough values). And that's with the T10 2-pieces and glyph of HotR.

This was with kings and might on myself and a 12% armor debuff on the boss from a random warrior.

You guys need to clear your cache on wowtal...if you're using Firefox, ctrl+shift+R, Chrome ctrl+f5, IE (god help you) ctrl+f5.

That will force a cache-dump and refresh.

Likely, your browser is pointing to an older version of the calculator from a prior build.
