There's nothing wrong with this post, except that you're just repeating stuff you already said in your earlier post.
I used to play whole T12 and T13 up to Madness without TC. After seeing how the last encounter is designed I specced out of Ancestral Swiftness, enchanted boots with Lavawalker and took TC. Also reforged out of spirit where I could.
I also used Heartsong and Darkglow thingy on the cloak before, heavily relying on spirit regen and Resurgence from HW spam.
Clearing DS again this week (no heroics due to lineup issues though) and I'm loving changes I made. I've yet to run out of mana, encounters in DS are designed perfectly for it. Im still trying to treat TC as an additional source of mana, lost ~600mp5 through reforging, but its really hard to avoid using it effectively in current tier.
If you check my spec and gear I went full mastery and crit where possible, while keeping haste slightly above 967 rating. Without taking Concussion and EPrecision TC ends up as mana gain, even with a few misses here and there.
Point is, I tried TC ages ago and didnt really like it, most likely due to boss' design, so I tried to rely on spirit, which worked nicely for me. But I highly advise you to try TC again in DS - its truly awesome in there.
Not sure if I helped actually, but there you go.
I have no problem playing with TC, I'm just bound to find 2 sides to this coin - it definitely seems that the majority of shams right now are using TC with, reportedly, great benefit.
Currently my goal of not using TC is in regards to 25m norm and 25m HMs, if anyone can relate...
Sure, I can definitely find some short periods of downtime during an encounter to throw LBs here and there (and possibly benefit greatly depending on chance?), but, ultimately, is it worth it and/or is there an equal/better alternative spec/gearing/playstyle?
Thanks for the response btw. :dance:
