I left this one uninfracted at the time, but I want to come back to it since I feel the reporter made a valid point that will be lost otherwise.
Posts speculating on the possible outcomes of the PTR changes are utterly worthless without math, sims, or sound logic to back them up.
This post is basically the result of the discussion which started in ComMcNeil's post on this page. The question arises as to whether the Mastery Reduction has any significant effect on Mastery's actual value. In the following posts (made by Deathwing and zeidrich) much is asserted but no math is done or sims employed to actually determine what the case is likely to be.
This type of conversation is becoming a cultural fixture in Fury discussion, and I feel is toxic to promoting actual theorycraft and resolution of issues.
Jugajuga, three posts above yours.
This was brought up in the arms thread and I feel is true.
The overall 4.1 changes seem to be a nerf to fury compared to arms, most likely to normalize arms/fury damage with the new tier of gear, since fury scales much better with almost every stat.
Actually, that was what he said. He wasn't referring specifically to the Flurry Buff, rather to the overall effect created by the Flurry buff and the Mastery Nerf.
Since now Mastery seems devalued, what would be its relative value now compared to Hit, since Nessana's napkin math shows a DPS increase if we were to get more Hit at the cost of Mastery.
EDIT : Another doubt. Since Fury gets only 2 points of Mastery, each point of Mastery now added by gear would have a better DPS increase than if we were to increase 1% Hit, figuratively speaking. Could anyone perform a mathematical calculation of this?
