Check out my current expertise. According to my reforgelite and everything I can think of, that's as low as I can get my expertise in this gear. Is this the best I can do right now?


That looks pretty much like the best you can do with your expertise if you've reforged out of it on ever piece that has it. Most melee have really high hit and exp this tier and there is nothing we can do about it. Not necessarily a terrible thing btw. It has a lot to do with the Renataki's trinket.

What are good ways to know that you should use the glyph of fire ele totem or not? And suppose you don't have a ton of mechanics or crazy things happening at the moment, how do you fit your fire ele's immolate and/or anything else into your priority? Where does it fall?


Fight length. Given that my guild is on a few heroics right now, we really out gear the normal modes that we do now, making fights much shorter than what they were when we started. Maybe Chill can clarify to best gear lvl to use FET Glyph full time (as I started using it all the time around trhe 520-522 ilvl mark) but general rule is use the Glyph if you can cast it twice as much as without. IE: fights that take 6-8 minutes, your only going to be able to cast FET 3 times: ( at 0:00, 3:00, 6:00 = 90 seconds) and without the Glyph 2 times: (0:00, 5:00 = 120 seconds) meaning not using the Glyph would be more beneficial. Fights longer than 9 minutes, than the Glyph would be better.

Now given the gear lvl and my fight times, its pretty much straight up best for me to use the Glyph all the time, on every fight, even on heroics. (except for Dark Animus, I don't use the Glyph because honestly you're only going to use it in the final boss burn phase)

As for the Elemental itself, you should have its Immolation and Fire Nova toggled to auto cast... And if you're using the Earth Ele as well (which you should when using PE) you should toggle the Taunt off. This means on your Fire Ele, the Fire Blast will also be toggled off. Instead of clicking/bind the spell manually, a lot of us have found using macros for a few of your main spells to cast the Fire Blast is the best bet.

Hey Chill; would you recommend I go Pure Haste Gems for Yellow? I have the Renataki's Soul Charm but also using the Valor Trink from SPA.

i just got back to the game last week and was wondering how significant having good weapons was for dps? I've been getting a few good upgrades through heroics for my gear but still have a cruddy offhand and my dps is pretty crappy still. on a regular single target im only hitting like 32k dps and am getting obliterated by other people and would like to keep up.

A lot of your gear, besides your offhand, is pretty low on ilvl, that's probably where the problem lies. It may not be the ONLY reason, i.e. you may need more practice with the priority, but that's probably where a big part your DPS is.

yea i figured as such, got a sweet helm and got a little big for my britches expecting big dps numbers. i guess it's silly for me to compare myself to people in fully gemmed and enchanted raid finder gear when im still rocking greens and still got some enchanting to do. thanks.

Hey I'm not quite sure if I should be gemming for haste or not, I tried it earlier and had a huge dps loss. But currently on boss fights I have a huge burst going up to 300k and then it drops down to about 90-100.

Hrmm so i tried gemming haste and was simming -2k ish dps
Seemed like a pretty decent dps loss too ingame

When does it become a dps gain?

On that note even with everything pointing to haste im still simming
mastery 1.87 or so
and haste and 1.80 qq

All sims do is add 1000 of each stat, sim the DPS difference, and divide that by 1000. IF you're doing reforge plots you get a much better idea of how much of haste/mastery is a good balance.

Try doing reforge plots of haste vs agility, in your gear I would expect haste to outdo agility.

Also try using the glyph of fire elemental and see if that's a gain yet

i was wondering if the LFR Rune of Re-Origination is good for enhance or just stick with LFR version Bottles of Infinite Stars? I feel like im losing dps by this trinket.

I'd stick with infinite stars for sake of simplicity

510-8 lolol that might have something to do with it.
im so bad

Looks like +2k haste -2k agi = about +3k dps does that sound right?

and can you try it with the FE glyph?


Non glyph fire ele still 1-2k higher then glyphed

Also tried it today on horridon and only did 17m this week compaired to 25m non glyphed last week

No. There should be a 2:1 ratio for haste/agi reforge plots (i.e. +4k haste / -2k agi or +2k haste / -1k agi)

How much ilvl do you need to start gemming for haste?

it's less about ilvl and more about having the meta gem and two RPPM trinkets

If haste is so good for our pets and trinkets/legendary gem will it be better to use at start Kafa Press (4k haste)? Agility is better overall, but may be KP is good as pre-potion?

P.S.
couldn't use simcraft for kafa press
