Jan 8th 2010 10:42AM I was running through the math with the spreadsheet as well but if you have gotten a different result than me i will have to go back and check on whether 4p ilvl 277 is better

Jan 7th 2010 10:46AM True haste is a good stat for us but we should never go out of our way to get it. We should never gem for it and not make a determining decision for gear based on whether gear has haste on it or not. If the gear is an upgrade and happens to have haste that's just icing on the cake but if it doesn't it really doesn't matter. It really comes down to what stats you have and how they will change based on gear upgrades. As you are a sv hunter it really doesn't matter for you anyways because since you value agility over pretty much everything else besides crit. Hope I've helped you.
Jan 7th 2010 10:40AM Chimera refreshes whatever % damage boost that was active on ss whenever it was cast. if you cast ss at the begining of the fight and then you get a 2p set proc you want to manually hit ss again so that the 15% damage boost will be refreshed on ss when you hit chimera
Jan 7th 2010 10:30AM It has to do with the way serpent sting's damage is calculated you want to manually refresh serpent sting whenever you have the biggest % multiplier for your damage because even after the damage boost fades serpent sting will still be using the % multiplier that was up when it was initially placed on the target. This is different than usual because with ap procs chimera shot refreshes serpent sting based on current ap. Thus it is better to manually refresh serpent sting whenever you have a % modifier to your damage.
Jan 7th 2010 10:12AM Having run through the long math on the t9 2-piece vs the t10 4-piece me and a few friends found that until you get to ilvl 277 t10 it's still better to use the 258 2-piece t9 or even the 245 versions. Was just wondering if you found the same conclusion when running through the long math.

Dec 2nd 2009 10:55AM I personally have to say that my guild take this idea too far as in they learn who looks up stuff on the ptr and do not allow them to run with the guild until the guild figures out its own strategy. I personally did not enjoy my raid lead telling me that i would be sitting for a few weeks after the patch came out even though I am ready to jump right in on patch day.
