Are you able to get a 3sec CS in T11? At how much haste is this possible? I've read upwards of 50% haste is needed.... this hurts me deep inside if true. The most I can manage in my t11 is 13.93%
If this is true, at what point does Haste become a waste of time? In my t11, I've got hit/exp capped and the rest reforged to haste. That only leaves me with 6% crit and 13% mastery.... I'm feelin all messed up about this.
No, you cannot. To reach 3.00 CS you need roughly 33.00% haste, 9% haste from JotP, and 5% haste from Shadow Priest or Shaman. In T11 it's possible to have a trinket proc to reach this amount, but at a rating conversion of roughly 128 rating - 1%, you need about 4,227 rating, which cannot be achieved in T11 through static on-gear ratings. However, there is a trinket proc of 1,926 haste, which gives you a "soft cap" of about 2300 rating on gear, which is a little higher than practical to hit in T11.
On test dummys I'm doing a constant 11.7k dps using all 3 cooldowns. I'm interested to know if anyone's doing much better and how you've reforged yourself. When I get a chance, I'm going to reforge all to Mastery, and then all to Crit to see if I can find some kind of a balance.
Over duration of about 40-50 seconds, 828,595 damage done, about 13,000 DPS (printscreen lag caused me to dip below 13k when I pressed the button, grr).
Over about 15 minute duration, 8,797,317 damage done, fluctuating from about 12,470 to 12,500 depending on RNG.
I had a few messups (not really used to this UI for HP tracking) so I had a few of those "grats, you just casted CD when you had 3HP" incidents during the longer test.
Buffs I used was the leftover flask from some instance I was doing, and blessing of might. No other buffs.
Rough priority rotation I was using:
(Inquisition inactive) AoW proc'd - Inquisition (any HP)
3HP Inquisition < 6 secs left on previous Inquisition
Hammer of Wrath (During Avenging Wrath)
3HP Templar's Verdict
Hammer of Wrath
Sub-3hp w/ HoL - Templar's Verdict (or, if sub 6 seconds on Inquisition, Inq.)
Rotation feels extremely RNG heavy. Early on I chain procced and was riding 14k DPS for almost a minute, and then I spent another minute without any procs and dropped down to 11k, when cooldowns came back up and I was able to edge back over 12k. It's a bit frustrating to have a DPS swing of that magnitude be completely out of your control.
Comparing to other classes, I can maintain 12.8k-13.2k as an enhance shaman on the same target dummy - and searing totem doesn't attack target dummies.
