some comments for the article:
Socket Bracer and Socket Gloves, allow two additional gems. Naturally you want to use or . Tied with Enchanting, Engineering, Inscription, and Jewelcrafting at 320 Str.
If 640 Haste > 320 Str then BS could edge out other professions.
Given the discussions over the past few months, would it be save to say that the 640 haste is the way to go here, rather than it still be in question?
which provides Sockets for Tinker's Gears makes this an excellent starter helm. This is obsoleted by the next tier.
Synapse Springs now boosts Str by 1920 for 10 seconds every minute. This locks out trinket cooldowns for 10 seconds. Excellent boost but cannot be stacked with trinkets during CD phases, requiring some CD juggling. Averages to 320 Str boost, the equivalent of Blacksmithing, Inscription, and Jewelcrafting.
It may be worth mentioning other Tinkers such as rocket boosts and goblin glider here. They provide some valuable mechanics for certain fights (fight which involve fall damage and fast movement phases).
Also may be worth mentioning the Engineer helm, while obselete for top end raids, appears to be a BiS for Challenge mode dungeons due to the mass amount of stats provided by the gears.
Will not be covered as the present intent is to make Minor Glyphs cosmetic or similar non-play-impacting changes. Example: changing Judgment graphic from a Hammer to an Axe.
Realistically there is only 1 glyph that would provide utility to a fight: Falling avenger.
Some fights use fall damage as a mechanic (Iron Jug) so falling avenger can help with increased survivability at times.
Hasty hearth assists with your repair bill. If you see an obvious wipe incoming you can bubble-hearth before suffering the death, thus losing your buffs and causing gear dmg. I recommend setting hearth to 2moon/7star so you can fly right back into raid with ease.
All damaging attacks do 200% damage when they Crit (previously default was 150% for spells), before Metagem modifier. Only change to Ret paladins from this is Exorcism.
might need slight re-wording with respect to meta and thok's tail adjustments.
