What will be the best race PVE DPS-Wise in Cata for Horde?
I've searched and searched the forums to see if anyone has done any research on it, but couldn't find anything substantial.
Launches your belt rockets at an enemy, dealing (1 + 0.25 * AP.429 * $SPFI + level * 2 + $INT * 0.50193) fire damage.
Time is money:
1% increased attack and casting speed.
Increases your attack and casting speed by 20% for 10 sec.
Increases your spell power by 584. Lasts 15 sec.
Command : Damage done by Death Knight, Hunter, Shaman and Warlock pets increased by 5%.
Troll Racial (at 80) is worth 36.43 haste rating which is higher than 1%
(32.79 haste rating=1%. [Goblin racial]), but the advantage of the goblin rocket barrage & 1% haste should put it over the single troll racial.
So it's between the orcs sp gain (which is also pet dmg gain) + 5% pet damage vs 1% haste and rocket barrage. The rocket barrage belt does scale with gear, which is nice, but it doesn't crit.
On the reverse side, Goblin rocket jump would be another good defensive cooldown to get out of shit (along with demonic circle). It obviously shares the cooldown with the rocket barrage attack, but who can put a value on staying alive?
I wasn't in beta, so, I have no way of testing data at 85. Was just curious if someone has done any research on this.
