Looking for clarification on hit rating

(Locked)

I was told to shoot for a 8% hit rating. Not sure what to go by. Under my melee stats mine reads,,, Hit chance +9.82%. then when I mouse over it I see. Hit rating 699 (=5.82% hit chance) I can bring it up a lot more but i was told I only need 8% which I am going by the melee stat. So I'm not sure which one to go by. what I see before mouse over or the one in
( ) when I mouse over ?

Gues im just wondering why Im seeing two hit ratings in melee, regular then mouse over

9180
Look under spell hit, as poisons are considered spells. 1332 if you have 2/3 precision, for raiding anyway.
If you're doing pve as mut you want 17% spell hit


edit: ^beat me :(

Im using 3/3 precision, and hit scales evenly between spell and melee( I believe) so what do I wanna see in melee b4 I mouse over?
So where mine reads 5.82 I wanna see 17%?

1) You have 2/3 Precision, not 3/3 but since you don't want 3/3 that's good

Edit: I see, in your Sub spec. That spec isn't any good for PVE or PVP though

2) Melee Hit and Spell Hit do not scale equally

Melee Hit Rating 120.125 = 1%
Spell Hit Rating 102.47= 1%

For a heroic you need 6%

For raiding you need 8% melee and 17% spell, to get to spell cap you've well passed melee cap

I dont even use Sub anymore. I only use Assass. So just keep adding hit untill i get to spell hit where i want it?

Yes. With your 2/3 Precision you want to have 1332 Hit Rating. On your character sheet it will say 17% on your armory it will say 13% b/c it doesn't take talents into account.

Edit: This is a must for raiding as Assassination.

This will help you reforge very precisely and very easily

Cant figure out how to use the reforge tool. I downloaded the zip file, extracted it to desktop. I can find where to put my armory url at?

when i open it it just says cant read anything or something like that, press any button to close.

The file marked reforger.cfg you need to go in there one of the first lines in URL = <dummy blank armory link here>

copy your armory url which is

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/kul-tiras/stizzealth/advanced

and paste it into the file in place of that blank example link, save it, then run the reforger and you'll be good

S'alright, I would think it would open with word pad, I have it set for Notepad

Try right clicking on the file and choosing "Open with..." from the menu options that should be there.

Find Notepad and select it there should be a check box to say always use this program.

The first section of the .cfg file should look like this (note this is for my armory)

# Armory URL of your character. EU/US supported.
url = http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/gorefiend/caera/advanced

It's really hard to tell why it's not working for you unfortunately, cause I can't see it on your screen

so your's would look like

# Armory URL of your character. EU/US supported.
url = http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/kul-tiras/stizzealth/advanced

Until you can get it running on your end, I ran it for you. These are the reforges you need to change for optimized reforges. All other reforges you have can be left as is.

Haste -> Hit: Head
Crit -> Mastery: Shoulders
Crit -> Mastery: Waist
Haste -> Mastery: Wrist
Haste -> Mastery: Mirage Ring
Crit -> Mastery: Ring of Dun Algaz

Edit: Yup
