Yes, it is simple math. You could even call it Dummy Math. You're a dummy for using target dummies for anything.

Original Post:

8.5 / 5 = 1.7 -> 9 ticks at 70% haste

7.5 / 5 = 1.5 -> 8 ticks at 50% haste

The OP has been updated with numbers from reforged gear.

EDIT: And now the scale factors are updated as well. Note that the new gear is above the 1406 "sweet spot" for haste.

I've done a lot of target-dummy killing and I have a spriest in the group for my 5% haste.

While my testing falls in line with 1406 being the sweet spot for the 8th tick of immolate, I can't seem to figure out the math. I have a phantom 5% haste missing in my calculation to reach the 50% haste required for the 8th tick.

1. Convert to percent haste
1406 / 32.79 = 42.8789%

2. Account for 5% haste buff from shadow priest
42.8789% x 1.05 = 45.0229%

3.
?

I'm sure this is basic math for those who have been doing this a long time. I just can't seem to locate the calculation.
