Pve TrinketSwiftys lost pinky

Atm the proc you get lasts for 2 minutes and every time you get a new proc you reset the time so its close to a 100% uptime on it.
I haven't bothered with figuring out how much crit i get when its fully stacked yet but it seems abit broken to have over 1k str + the proc constantly.
without checking i think it should be around 2500-3000 crit constantly up.

edit: also the spark of zandalari or w.e, the troll 7k str proc thing, lasts for 40 seconds in pvp as well, so i'm just assuming gaze is bugged due to having 3 stacks on the proc.

its a bug, if ity were to last longer it wouldnt be 3min, since the reporc does not refresh the duration but the buff with higher stat.

Might be me not understanding that sentence but every time you get a new stack the timer on the buff is refreshed.

The only PvE trinkets I would consider using as a ret are Relic of Xuen, Fabled Feather of Ji-Kun, and possibly Spark of Zandalar (though that thing takes a long ass time to build up sparks).

Viable PvE trinkets imo are:
*Helmbreaker Medallion http://www.wowhead.com/item=93261
*Darkmist Vortex http://www.wowhead.com/item=86336
*Gaze of the Twins http://www.wowhead.com/item=95799
Viable PvP trinkets are obviously either the proc or on-use
So which one would you pick and why?

Otherwise use the darkmist vortex. The others have been nerfed and +crit is way inferior to haste.

Turns out, fabled feather is complete garbage and the patch notes were not accurate (it's nerfed SIGNIFICANTLY more than 33%.
At ilvl 496 (what it gets scaled down to inside instanced PvP), the tooltip text says it will increase str by 1047 every 2 seconds for 20 seconds. According to the PTR patch notes, this increase is supposed to be reduced by 33%, but the duration is supposed to be increased by 100%.
The mechanics of the 100% duration increase aren't immediately apparent. I wasn't sure if I would gain a stack every 2 seconds for 40 seconds (20 stacks in total, didn't think this would be the case as it would be extremely overpowered), or a stack every 4 seconds for 40 seconds. It turns out, what happens, is you gain a stack every 2 seconds for 20 seconds, and then after 20 seconds you stay at 10 stacks for another 20 seconds.
This originally made me super excited, as 1047 * .67 = 701.49 str every 2 seconds which would mean at second 20 I would gain 7015 str for a whopping 20 seconds. Unfortunately (or, in the spirit of balance, fortunately), the trinket is nerfed even harder in PvP (stealth nerf that I haven't seen documented anywhere).
Here's what the Fabled Feather really does.
It increases your strength by 461.5 every 2 seconds for 20 seconds. Which means you're only getting 461.55 str every 2 seconds for 20 seconds, and then after second 20 you are only getting 4615 str for 20 seconds.
This means the Fabled Feather did not have its power reduced by 33% as listed in the patch notes, but rather it had its power reduced by 55.92%.
TL;DR: Fabled Feather and presumably Renataki's are a lot worse in PvP than the patch notes said. I don't plan on using my Fabled Feather over my PvP proc trinket as a human ret paladin because the uptime is extremely low and the proc is more nerfed than the patch notes said it was.
