Dec 31st 2010 12:59AM While I'm currently not raiding on my priest. I would imagine the rogue falls into the same boat, but with expertise more so than hit (for Assassination)
TECHNICALLY for ALL DPS Specs hit is the worst stat, if you gamble and get lucky and RNG favors you and you never miss.
Reality is that won't happen, ever particularly with spell shit.
It's a choice of consistency over higher random damage due to dumb luck
For Assn. Rogues we are suppose to ignore Expertise entirely, currently its several hundred dps loss to have any expertise on a sim
In reality, there currently isn't a whole lot of leeway with our rotation. I was running under the expertise cap and my envenom missed three times in a row, and then I had to switch off to another person (Omnotron Council) lest I do massive raid damage to my group
As such my Slice and Dice falls off, and there goes a large chunk of damage being wasted having to refresh it.
Same thing if Rupture fails to hit multiple times, I'm losing damage because that's my main form of Energy regain (very similar to Spriest and Mind Blast; only for Spriests if your the only form of Replen it's even more important)
So take your pic, Consistency over Luck
Being able to forget about your rotation and focus on mechanics or having to pay alot of attention in case your rotation gets screwed up, then perhaps you miss a mechanic that's important because you were not Hit/Expertise capped
Nov 17th 2010 2:31PM On Paper you'd need an item lvl 277 1.8 dagger to outweigh a 1.4 blue ilvl200 80 dagger
Librarians Paper-cutter was never given an EP value since its the only 1.3 speed weapon
Also, as far as MH and OH, the general rule of thumb is that if the DPS is equal you stick,
the fastest dagger in your MH while you stick the slower in the off-hand, Deadly on fast IP on slow, due to the way our abilities work your main hand poison is more likely to proc, even with mutilate that hits with both it's proc is higher being in the main hand.
You increase the amount of IP instant procs from DP procing, and it's usually a dps increase or at the very least breaks even.
HOWEVER, with mastery as a rising stat and mechanics as they currently are I'd imagine it will move beyond an even break or minor increase to something noticeable.

Oct 15th 2010 5:26PM Considering that the Viking's couldn't beat the JETS when they have the tri-fecta of awesome, the Miami Heat of the NFL, between Farve, Peterson and Moss

Sep 1st 2010 8:26PM Yea, the shuffle and some other JC methods have been doing quite well in making me a fair amount of money, but a certain person recently noticed he has competition in the Skyflare department, got extremely pissed and has started shoving massive amounts of Chaotic's for 25g a pop and before then average price was about 37g,
He's basically shut that market down, I don't see how he's making alot of profit either unless he was just sitting on a ----ton of supply
