the reason aff needs gear to top dps is simple, haste. aff needs a high amount of haste to get the most out of the dots. at a lower ilvl its not possible to get the second haste cap, which is 13,737.
as iv quoted before :The first is at 9,778 Haste Rating and will earn you +2 ticks on Unstable Affliction, +3 ticks on Corruption, and +4 ticks on Agony. The next breakpoint is at 13,737 Haste Rating and gets you +2 ticks on Unstable Affliction, +4 ticks on Corruption, and +5 ticks on Agony.
our dots hit fairly weakly. we need to up the amount of ticks for the damage to be there. otherwise mastery at lower ilvls is better
no the first haste cap wont do it from what iv seen . it gets u close but not there.
