Just wanted to say Boomkins give a higher uptime of DI than Spriests do when it even a few pieces of T13 gear. The difference is 99% vs 98% but still Boomkins are better.

Where is this math? I would be interested in seeing it. In addition uptime is one peice of the pie, the other is the haste, on order to truly determine who it's better on you need dog output as the haste pushing either to another dot tick is significant.

I think the math and the debate are over in this thread.http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/1035467-Dark-Intent-(4.3)I don't think it's at cut and dry as Tyler makes it look.

A few things, the op have everyone focus magic, this is not a linear buff and could impact the simulation. Secondly based off the date of the op it could be the 4.2 version(didn't have time to read all 4 pages). However in full heroic gear I can easily see this as shadow priests will hit 31% haste which leaves us in between extra ticks. However at the same token the math is a terrible example for anyone needing the math at this point as the amount of heroic gear in the average gear is 0.In addition no where was it noted if it was helter skelter or a patchwork style simulation.

In the remainder of the thread the sim is done again without focus magic. The OP admits that it was a mistake with the original numbers. The results of the second simulation have similar results though.But again I still think it varies depending on the situation. Saying Shadow Priests are the end all and be all for DI seems a bit narrow minded to me. In the end we will have to wait for more solid number as opposed to napkin math.
