What do you think of Breath of the Hydra?
With the reduced effect it'll be something like a passive 3,400? int on a 40s duration
Hmm, yeah I'm not sure, gets more complicated when trying to factor in RealPPM and such. If you could tell me exactly what the uptime (in %) is and exactly how much int it gives once scaled down, I could at least compare it against Shado-Pan.
I compared the three meta gems in question, here are the *DAMAGE* values for them:
Burning Primal Diamond (crit %)
Fleet Primal Diamond (mastery)
Tyrannical Primal Diamond
Note that does not include the resilience on the PvP meta. How much you value resil is sort of personal preference, but let's say you value resil at a 1:1 ratio to mastery, then it would be worth 135.41883
. So I'd say it's a pretty hands-down victory for the PvP meta, unless you just have no concern for resil at all.
