Hello. I am new to the forums, and I have a whole mess of questions.

Allow me to wince before I begin, as many of you will likely give me the stink eye for some of these.

1) Mastery cap is 102.4...Where do I find this number? I stack mastery where ever I can and I can't figure how close I am. My combat table is over 90%. Can you please advise me on where to find this data or point me to a resource page for this?

2) What am I doing wrong, gear-wise?
(Side note - if the avalanche is still showing as weapon enchantment, disregard. I use windwalk. THis was something we could whip up on the spot during a dungeon when a weapon dropped).

3) Why am I so squishy? My combat table is supposed to be cranked up, yet my healer complains i'm limp. Can you advise me on this?

Thanks in advance for any helpful advice!

Also, can someone please guide me to where I can get sources for numbers I see floating around in regards to combat table/mitigation?
Does strength pay into dodge/parry?
Does agility pay into dodge/parry?

Your places:
Basic Training
Gear Discussions and Advice


Start with posting in the correct forums and have a look at the guides ;)

To reply to you:
1) 102.4 is NOT the mastery cap, you're doing it wrong, read the basic training for what is your Combat Table Coverage, data can be taken here:

In your current gear the CTC is about 55%.

2) I'll say everything, as the armory shows full PvP gear.

3) Read point 2.


Also, for gear check there is a specific thread where you should have posted.

Judgements of the Pure?

There's better places to put those 2 points.

Welcome to Basic. At the very top of this forum are two stickies,
one a general FAQ and the other specifically about the combat table.

The general FAQ should get you going in the right direction gear-wise,
and the combat table article addresses how much mastery you want.

Thanks for the swift responses guys. I am taking this under advisement, making notes and exploring the site. Within a few days I should be in good shape.

Cheers,
Ry

Ok, now that looks like pve gear.

That said, I'd change the enchant on the helm from Wildhammer to Earth Ring; change the weapon enchant from Avalanche to Windwalk. I'm also a bit unsure on the pure +40 mastery gemming. I might guess part of the issue your healers are having are that you aren't necessarily avoiding the attacks at any time (and are you proactive about cooldowns?).

Also, tinker your gloves.

I learned a lot here. I've got 2 more pieces of valor gear to go. My CTC is getting really good, and I find that in the HoTs healers aren't spending much mana on me anymore. I've done a lot of juggling, and still more to go, but for your pleasure...

Personally, after the CTC cap I'd value extra stamina over extra avoidance. But that's discussed more eloquently than I can manage, elsewhere on the forums :) On that note, here's what I'd do:

If I could get them cheap I'd replace your Subtle Amberjewels with Fractured - they provide better CTC coverage.

Same for the gem in your helm - the Expertise socket bonus isn't that useful. However I'd look to pick up the bonuses on your shoulders and legs, there's 45 free stamina there for you.

I'd pick up the stamina enchant on the chest, and the armour enchant on your cloak.

This lot might take you over the CTC cap, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing - it might give you enough leeway to run a stamina trinket instead of two mastery ones, which can be helpful in some encounters with a lot of magic damage.

Hope this helps :)
