1 - Pre-ArP nerf - Yes. Post ArP nerf? Not until Icecrown and full ilvl 258 gear. ArP scales differently than other stats. The more you have of it, the better it scales. As a poster just above showed ArP just *barely* beats out Str in full BiS ilvl258 gear.
Okay not to be rude but the simulator stuff looks like fancy HTML gibberish to me
Does Geming full ArP beat StR in these simulators ?
does the simulator factor in DRW and trinket procs?
can the simulator be set to show 3 minutes 6 minutes and 9 minute fights ?
does if factor in rolling disease's if u refresh after trinket proc's using Glyph of Disease?
does if factor in raid buffs?
sorry if i getting a little off topic here just trying to figure out if anyone can support anything saying ArP is better then StR
Not real good at using the simulator but what i am getting from it is its nothing more then a way to document a perfect cast rotation running for a ridiculous amount of hours and isnt really helpful in telling me the answer to my original question : Does anyone have anything that says geming for ArP over StR is a greater increase in DPS if you are not using runestone or grimtoll and rely on greatness and paragon procs instead?
2 - Yes, it can be set to use DRW with procs or without (ie on CD) and it's programed to use it at the optimum time to push the maximum dps.
3 - Yes. You can set it to do many short duration fights where burst will win out.
4 - Yes, however modeling disease in the first place is a relatively poor idea. 1000h tests will put disease miles ahead of anything else because you'll be rolling maximum dot tick diseases almost the entire time.
5 - Yes, all of which you can disable if you would like.
If you read the simulator topic at all you would know all of this (or really, any of the major threads in general).
For Blood (and only Blood), ArP is currently worth more in appropriate level raid gear. The difference is *extremely* small, but yes, it's technically better. If you *ever* intend to respec, then gem str. If you don't want to blow your money regemming in 3.2.2 (where Str is better than ArP anyways) then don't regem now.
