I’m not a math person. I’m far more likely to slog through the mathy guides and try to “translate” them into something more palpable (and amusing) than I am to try to generate numbers myself. These are trying times, however, as the math gods of EJ are distracted by the shiny numbers at 85 and I cannot rely on them to do the hard work for me.
So! I slapped an alternative spec into my other tab and decided to test it on dummies FOR YOU. Don’t you feel special? You should. I’m normally too lazy to do anything so technical.
The BM portion of the spec is relatively standard. Two points should go into Go for the Throat–nothing has changed there.
But what about the other points?
There. That is my spec. Effeciency was also tempting, but I opted to play with Improved Serpent Sting and…and um, whatever the other box is, that gives you haste. In my “haste = more focus regen = less fail?” line of thought I was curious to see if putting full points in that would help.
Now haste value is one of those subjective things. How much latency do you have? How much haste is already on your gear? it could be that you’ll hit one of those magical sweet spots and it will do uber magical things for you but generally speaking…eh, go for full ISS and be done with it.
(The difference was ~100-200 DPS, if you’re wondering.)
And you might have already known this or it may be patiently obvious to you more mathy types but WHATEVER, I TRIED FOR YOU.
