In Topic: Why Haste is the best start for Combat

03 February 2015 - 07:15 PM

I personally prefer mastery over haste as a combat rogue. Haste definitely provides more energy regeneration and makes combat insight cycle faster, but that advantage is lessened in PvP where you can't have 100% uptime on a target. In PvE you have more uptime, so you never have wasted energy ticks because your energy bar is never full. Because combat mastery strikes with the offhand, it also increases the chance to activate Combat Potency. Also mentioned above, mastery will provide more burst during killing spree, which is usually what wins games before they go into dampening

Sadly, they scrapped the rolling hemo dot effect in early beta, so sub rogues are pretty much forced to use a dagger main hand now

In Topic: Is Holinka the worst thing that happenned to WoW PvP ?

I think Holinka is doing a great job. This is just the first season of WoD, and I think s16 is infinitely better than s5, s9 and s12. You can see Blizzard is doing a better job of making changes earlier on to tweak PvP. Hotfixes are being rolled out multiple times per week. What you have to remember is that WoW is a PvE game, and most of the damage/healing numbers will be based on PvE performance, which Holinka doesn't have control of. As previous posters have pointed out, PvP balancing really can't reach its full potential until they separate the functionality of abilities in PvP and PvE.

Maybe it's just me, but I don't foresee Echo being as broken as everyone is making it out to be. If shamans spec Echo they lose NS(and the 5% passive haste), which is often a life-saver and has half the cooldown.

In Topic: Razer sale, all razer 50% off for 24 hours

I had the Razer Naga for ~1.5 years before the left click button started to fail. They kept sending me "refurbished" replacements, each of which lasted ~3 months before one of the major buttons or tracking sensor would fail. I think I went through like 4 Razer Nagas in 2.5 years. Once my warranty was over and they wouldn't send me a replacement, I made new keybinds and went back to using a $10 Microsoft mouse that I've had for like 10 years which still works perfectly. For me it wasn't worth the frustration of a mouse randomly failing and having to wait 2+ weeks for Razer to send me a new one.
