    • Forum Rules (Updated 3/22/14)   07/14/10

      Welcome to the Elitist Jerks forums, a WoW discussion forum targeted towards topics regarding high-end raiding and analysis of game mechanics. We ask you to take a few minutes to read the following before making use of these forums.   First, a point of clarification. The name of these forums is not intended ironically; we have high standards for the discussion that occurs herein, and we're quite unapologetic about it. If you feel our rules are stupid or arbitrary, we don't really care. If you don't wish to follow them, you're welcome to return to the official Blizzard forums.   Following is a brief listing of our forum rules; note that it is by no means exhaustive, as in our experience people are quite innovative in finding new ways to be stupid. These are simply a set of guidelines to get you started in the right direction. If you follow them, you will generally do fine here; however, if you concoct some creative new form of stupidity, our moderators feel no need to restrain themselves in letting you know. All posters are to make an effort to communicate clearly. In particular, all posts should be made in a reasonable approximation of proper English. We realize that a significant number of you are not native speakers, and we do not expect perfection: merely effort. Please obey basic rules of capitalization and punctuation, avoid chatroom abbreviations ("lol", "imo", "u", and the like), and pay at least minimal attention to sentence and paragraph structure. This includes not starting a new paragraph for each sentence. All opinions should be stated as succinctly as possible. Do not make multiple consecutive posts; rather, multi-quote and include all your ideas in a single post. Do not quote huge blocks of text to add a short reply; instead, quote only what you need to to make your point. Do not break a single quoted reply into multiple blocks; doing so needlessly lengthens your post without aiding its readability. And don't provide unnecessary backstory: if it isn't relevant to the question you're asking or the point you're making, we don't need to know about it. All discussion should be both polite and civil. Trolling or flaming in any form is forbidden. Just because someone disagrees with you does not mean they are stupid or on drugs and their personal hygiene isn't really relevant to the discussion. Regardless of the merit (or lack thereof) of your argument, it should be made in a way that is neither insulting nor condescending. Whining in any form is forbidden. Blizzard is not incompetent or stupid and they are not intentionally screwing you over and neither is anyone else. If all you're going to do is complain, don't bother posting. Threads should be started if and only if there is some reasonable topic to discuss. If the issue you wish to discuss is covered in an existing thread, use it rather than creating a new one. If you are asking a simple question that you expect to have a simple answer, ask it in one of the "Simple Questions/Simple Answers" threads. But if you feel there is a topic of discussion not well-covered by existing threads, feel free to start a new thread to discuss it. Some sub-forums restrict new members from creating new topics unless they've made at least 10 approved posts, to prevent spamming or bad posts. If you really think it deserves a new thread before you have 10 posts, contact a moderator with your post content. Do not post unless you have something new and worthwhile to say. Do not bump, quote for truth, cross-post, or post only to say thanks. We don't want to hear your funny story about something that happened in your raid last night, your baseless speculation is unproductive, and your idea for a new ability really isn't that interesting. We don't care what gear you are hoping to get or just received. If you have an idea you'd like to share with the community, support it with analysis, testing, or both that indicates you've put some thought into it. (Note: Posting of a new untested spec falls under this rule, unless you have done the grunt work and have information to support your amazing new spec don't even bother posting it here.) Do not beg for hand-holding. These are forums for discussion and analysis, not for answering any question that you might happen to dream up. Search and read before posting--do not post a question unless you are fairly confident that the answer isn't widely known or easily attainable. In particular, we do not want to take a look at your armory or WWS to tell you what you're doing wrong and we're not interested in making your tough gear or spec decisions for you. We expect you to use the search function and also to read the first post as well as the last 5 pages of the thread you are posting in. Chances are your question has already been answered. Additionally, do not post asking for confirmation of a simulation result. If you think there is a problem with the Sim you are welcome to PM the author. All accounts must have a valid WoW profile. If you no longer play and have deleted all characters you used to have, you may select the "No WoW Account" option; otherwise, this information must be filled out for your main character. If you fail to observe this rule you'll be permanently banned from our forums. We do not permit anonymous posting. Do not sign your posts. People can see who you are from the profile printed to the left of each post, so signing your posts is redundant and simply takes up space. Similarly, you do not need to link your armory in your post, as if people wish to see it they can get it from your profile. Do not respond to terrible posts. Do not respond to a blatantly awful post (a post that is in clear violation of the rules) either in an attempt to moderate them or to answer a question they posed. Your post will just be warned/infracted and removed with the post you are replying to. If you feel that a post is in violation of these rules, please report it and the moderators will deal with it as we feel is appropriate. No Advertising. Do not make posts solely for the purpose of advertising your site/blog/twitch/etc. You may post such things if it's relevant and adds to discussion at hand. If you have information to share, share it here with a link back to your blog or whatever. Do not post "I have information, come to my site to get it". That will result in an immediate infraction and post removal. Also, we will remove any link to a site that violates a games TOS/EULA such as gold selling sites.

      If you violate a forum rule, you will receive an infraction. Most infractions are worth one point, although we reserve the right to give you more at any time if we feel you deserve them. If you accumulate too many infraction points, you will receive an automatic (usually temporary) ban which revokes your posting privileges, as follows: 3 Points - 1 Day 5 Points - 3 Days 8 Points - 1 Week 10 Points - 1 Month 15 Points - Permanent

      Familiarize yourself with The Banhammer, an archive of all infractions given by the moderators here; it will give you some examples of what not to do. Also feel free to take a gander over The Dung Heap, which will give you a good idea of what these forums would look like if we weren't such jerks.   Thank you for joining the discussion!
    • Site Maintenance (Updated 11-12-15)   10/01/15

      Site has been updated to IPS as of 12 November Known Issues So Far: Old wowhead "item" tags are depricated. They may be re-added to fix some issues with older guides, but for most part it's better to just use the modern wowhead.js which auto parses actual wowhead links automatically into tooltips/names. Just post wowhead links in guides and the js will do the rest. You don't need a special BB code for items. Old article links will be broken do to IPS 4 changing url path to remove some pointless "/_/" directory. The articles are still there and can be found in guides menu. You just may not be able to click links from any threads linking to them without editing out the "/_/" part of url. I'll fix most of this little by little when more important stuff is taken care of. External links/google search results may run into same problem. That will just rely on waiting for google to reindex new paths. After you login, you may be thrown to an error page saying page cannot be found if you logged in from the forum index. Harmless though. Just click "forums" and you'll get forum index since redirect after login is busted. The benefactors bar seems to hang/timeout sometimes.

  1. [Resto] 6.2 Guide and Discussion

      To me it seems like a bug. Kinda sad
  2. [Resto] 6.2 Guide and Discussion

    Theres a thread on MMO champ about Wild Growth still having a haste breakpoint at 900 haste. How true is this? Are there any other breakpoints?
  3. [Resto] 6.2 Guide and Discussion

      I personally don't like HotW (even before the patch) because I don't think its that useful unless I know i want to have a persiod of high sustained / burst healing for that time or if a fight only has 1 important phase that has to be healed through with that boost.  I much rather NV on most fights.
  4. [Resto] 6.2 Guide and Discussion

    Oh the SotF thing, I never noticed it with Wild Growth, but I noticed it numerous times on Rejuv.   To me, it seemed like it happened only when i refresh a rejuv on somebody and it just wouldnt consume it.  I tried to test it and i thought i got it to work but it then decided not to fail any more.   I can't reproduce it now, so unsure what the issue is, but I've definitely seen it not be consumed.
  5. [Resto] 6.2 Guide and Discussion

    Haste vs Mastery: At least for me at 90, it seemed mastery was doing more. It could just be the nerfs that happened, idk. I don't really care any more. Gonna wait to 100.     Hamlet: What do you think about pushing them much closer together? http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/1606498-Resto-Druid-6-0-Haste-Caps?p=30056825&viewfull=1#post30056825   This post i think maybe explained it best where they more so compliment each other then stacking one more than the other. Right now, like i said, I see mastery doing more, but I no doubt think that at 100, where it matters, haste is going to start to shine more becasue of the way damage is dealt in a raid.    And have you looked at any gear in WoD? I may go t ry to take a look soon, but is there any piece where we're forced to choose X/Mastery or X/Haste?  Can we just stack haste/mastery in every slot?  Then the only thing we would have to worry about is the rare gem or two.
  6. [Resto] 6.2 Guide and Discussion

    I was at about 51% haste, and 49% mastery last night, I felt like i did terrible, but its probably the Paladin / disc.  I went and did some before / after numbers in org and then regemmed to a more mastery heavy build, have abouit 30% haste , 68% mastery now. The before after was about a 2k~ per heal increase (depending on the spell, little more little less) and on hots I lost about 1 full tick on pretty much everything. I'm gonna do mastery tonight and see how it goes. I may just go buy 2 stacks of each gem just to regem mid raid night. Right now, im changing my stance, and leaning towards mastery if it stays like this. We'll see.
  7. [Resto] 6.2 Guide and Discussion

    Note: I don't really theroycraft, I'm terrible at it. I'm just going to speak from personal experiences and maybe some opinion from reading other peoples thoughts.   Basically haste vs mastery boils down to a couple things: How you heal, what spells are doing the majortiy of your healing, and how your other healers heal with you.   Basically spell selection matters and if you're actually making use of most of your HoT's ticks.  Even though they tick faster with haste, the extra and partial ticks also being wasted doesn't help.   For specific spells this is what I think: Rejuv: Benefits from both stats almost equally, leaning more towards haste. Wild Growth: Same as rejuv, but leans more towards mastery since the healing is front loaded. Mastery is more true with SotF use Lifebloom: Haste Regrowth: Mastery Healing Touch: Mastery Efflorescence: Both (If raid is close to 100%, mastery better, if not close to 100%, haste is better) Swiftmend: Mastery (Rampart Growth really only time this would be high) Tranquility: Mastery. Since there is not HoT component any more, I think haste only reduces the channel time (please correct me if I'm wrong) Let me know if you think any of that is just wrong or not.    Now since we're level 90 at the moment, gems are a relevant, but once we get to 100 this point might mean less: do we want to stack one stat more than the other? or try to keep them close in % values?    at 90: I'm able to put a +20 haste gem in every single socket.  The blue sockets I had gave me +crit so I ignored it.  Am I wrong in doing this? Should I maybe try to get more of a balance? I'll find that out in a couple weeks.  I plan on doing a full haste week, full mastery, and a mix. Now when we get to 100 this will matter less, but it could influence what we do with the rare sockets that we get on gear, as well as making the tough decision of Haste/Crit or Mastery/Crit. Should we go for more haste all the time? More Mastery? or keep them similar in value? Right now, I'm on the fence.  After the first day of raiding (we killed Mythic Thok and were working on SC) I felt this haste build wasnt working for me. I was consistently lower than my co-healers (a paladin and a disc priest) on the majority of fights when pre-60 I would be competing much more with them. Is it a change becasue they are more absorbs based? I think so. Does that makre haste more useful or mastery?  I'm not sure, I think they could both still work. In the end, just looking at this pure haste build, I feel a pure mastery may not work as well either and keeping them close in value to one another may be the better solution in the end.

      Well, I have that much becasue I set my weights on my Mr. Robot profile to say that spirit and haste past the breakpoints are fairly low priority.  So since I gain more mastery from reforging out of my spirit than my haste, thats what happened.  IMO more mastery from spirit than from the haste is more beneficial to me right now since I have an over abundance of spirit.   I run 25 man, and for the most part I think I can get my raid to use Mana cooldowns more efficiently and I'll be fine.  What I think I'll do though is keep mastery for today and then go haste before next reset.  Like that I can do a WoL comparison
  9. [Resto] Mists of Pandaria 5.4

    I'm currently sitting at 50% mastery raid buffed (21k mastery), 16k spirit and the 3k haste breakpoint.    I found with some custom Mr. Robot weights, I can reach 39% mastery raid buffed (15k mastery), 12.3k spirit, and 13k haste breakpoint.     I'm currently working on Heroic Thok (though skipped spoils for some reason, probably go back later) .  Would it be wise for me to switch to the haste build being this far into the tier?  I have been working towards some haste pieces, but I feel with my slightly heavy mastery gear I'd be better off using this and gemming haste so I keep a decent amount of mastery after the breakpoint.     A lot of other druids I'm seeing are at about 5k total mastery (unbuffed) with about the same gear, which I really don't like personally.   Another thing is I'm a little worried about my mana.  I've been running with about 16k spirit all tier and I'm just unsure if I'll get use to it, especially during progression.   How much of an HPS difference will this breakpoint actually do for me at this point in my gear?   http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/sargeras/krazyito/advanced - current armory    http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-naarxtnnuhwb6x5h/dashboard/  - here are the logs for tonight progression (killing Malk and working on Thok)     I may just stay mastery for this week and compare again next week to haste.   Let me know what you think.

    Krazyito @ Gnomeregan - Ask Mr. Robot - World of Warcraft There is as Mr. Robot profile I made for trying to get the 13k haste breakpoint. My question is, how much mastery/int is worth losing to get this breakpoint? Right now, it would be that I gem every single socket with haste and disregard bonuses, putting me at around 5k total mastery (27% raid buffed) Next question is, Does someone have a BiS list for the 13k haste breakpoint? Like, just the optimal amount of haste on the gear to get there then mastery gear? or just all haste gear then mastery gems? I made my own BiS list that was based on the 3k haste breakpoint then pure mastery. How worth it (i assume it is very) is it to get the 13k haste breakpoint?

    Someone told me that the Cleave trinket wasn't working correctly for resto druids. Anyone see problems?
  12. [Resto] Mists of Pandaria 5.4

    In regards to gemming, is it worth gemming 2 mastery over 1 intellect? Such as, red = int/mastery, yellow = mastery, blue = spirit/mastery or mastery (assuming mastery/int socket bonus) If it matters, here is my armory: Krazyito @ Gnomeregan - Community - World of Warcraft
