So I've never had a level 90 character before. I'm lvl 88 currently and I've been getting all these hints that I should start thinking about reforging and gemming, etc.
I've downloaded the addon 'ReforgeLite' but all I see (I'm an English Major, sue me); is a whole bunch of buttons and percentages.
My damage has been suffering lately. Below level 80 I was on the top of the damage charts and almost always top DPS and I held threat really well. Then suddenly, I hit level 80 and BAMB! I'm scaling near the bottom of the damage charts, it takes me full minutes to finish off monsters whilst questing and over-all, it sucks hozan-balls.
So I got figuring that maybe there was something wrong with my armour and that once I reach level 90 and get the armour I want, I should tweak things a little so that I'm not longer Pitiful Protection Pally and more Pwoar what a babe protection pally.
I know basic things from scouring the internet and watching YouTube clips but it's confusing to me. I haven't played WoW in a while and it's probably the only character-development game I've ever played... (in fact, it's pretty much the only game I've ever played).
HIT = 7.5%
EXPERTISE = 15%
^ Yup, that's all I know that should be happening. And that haste/mastery come next in priority.
So that's great. I know what I need to change. But then all the guides I read say: "CHECK YOUR STAT WEIGHT" ... what is a STAT weight?
Can ANYONE, I dunno ... help a technologically retarded individual out? I don't want to be the only level 90 with armour that looks like a mentally unstable child fiddled around with it at lunch time. I liked being one of the best and I really hate being weak and laughable.
And for all that is divine and holy, if someone links me a page that doesn't use proper English (English, not maths... and preferably written by someone who hasn't spent their entire life playing dungeons and dragons and knows all these funky little words I've never even heard of)
Feel free to check out my character and criticise... I think it's almost laughable myself!
