1. [Enhancement] BiS gear and spell priority from elitistjerks

    Please be aware that this is retail data. Due to bugs the BiS gear and talent tree might differ on our core.
    The original topic can be found at http://web.archive.org/web/201601240...33-and-onward/
    I fixed the gear and talent links and summarised a few things.
    In addition I added a few informations which aren't mentioned on elitistjerks. The added informations are my personal opinion, written in orange color and are up to discussion.


    In the Original Topic on "elitistjerks.com" a simulation with EnhSim was used to calculate the optimal gear, enchants, gems, glyph set up, talent spec and ability priority order for a Enhancement Shami.
    Everything that is listed here is the result of the simulation with EnhSim.

    *Enchanting and Leatherworking were selected at random from the pool of professions that provide the generic +80 AP. Equivalent profession enhancements will yeild similar results.
    **Run speed enchants provide superior DPS when you are running between targets for more than 10 seconds. This value was arrived at by simming the difference between Cats/Icewalker.

    Talent spec:


    Max dps Talent spec




    Variations in gear, spec and dps:

    Race:
    Tauren was selected in EnhSim to calculate the BiS gear and highest potential dps. BiS gear and highest potential dps for other races may differ.
    With my calculations I came to the result that the Orc racial grants the most dps with average 46 ap, 23sp, and 41 expertice rating.
    Spoiler: Show
    Lets assume u are attacking the boss for 7 minutes (420 seconds):

    The orc racial grants u for 15 seconds 322 AP and 163 SP and has 2 min CD.
    U can use the orc racial 4 times during a 7 min fight which is a total uptime of 60 seconds.
    420/60=7 Orc racial is up in 1/7 of the time.
    322 ap/7= 46 ap
    163 sp/7=23 sp
    Means the orc racial grants u a average 46 ap and 23 sp during a 7 minute long boss encounter.

    The troll racial grants u for 10 seconds 20% melee haste and has 3 min CD.
    20% melee haste is equal to 504 haste rating.
    U can use the troll racial 3 times during a 7 min fight which is a total uptime of 30 seconds.
    420/30=14 Troll racial is up in 1/14 of the time.
    504 haste /14= 36 haste
    Means the troll racial grants u a average 36 haste during a 7 minute long boss encounter.

    But lets not forget about the passive Orc racials.
    5 expertice from wearing axe or fist is equal to 41 expertice rating.
    So two expertice gems can be replace for 40 more haste or 80 more ap.

    To summon it up:
    36 haste from troll vs 46 ap, 23sp, and 41 expertice rating from orc.

    The Orc clearly wins here. The 5 expertice from wearing axe or fist should already outperform the troll racial.
    Troll should only be better for burst dmg in short fights but orc should always win when it comes to sustain dmg.

    Talents:
    http://wotlk.cavernoftime.com/spell=52456 and http://wotlk.cavernoftime.com/spell=29193 were used for the calculation with EnhSim.
    http://wotlk.cavernoftime.com/spell=52456 provides a unique buff which is 15% better than http://wotlk.cavernoftime.com/spell=57623 but http://wotlk.cavernoftime.com/spell=29193 doesn't stack with http://wotlk.cavernoftime.com/spell=55610 from frost DK.
    I suggest to use this talent spec if a frost DK is in the raid.
    It is actually 2 points in http://wotlk.cavernoftime.com/spell=16113 vs 2 points in http://wotlk.cavernoftime.com/spell=17486. The calculation with EnhSim shows that http://wotlk.cavernoftime.com/spell=16113 grants slightly more dmg than http://wotlk.cavernoftime.com/spell=17485.


    Professions:
    Leatherworking and Enchanting was used for the calculation.
    Engineering, Jewelcrafting and Blacksmithing are the best professions because they grant haste. In BiS gear Jewelcrafting and Blacksmithing slightly outperform Engineering.


    FAQ

    Q: Your list is using hit gems. Wouldn't it be more DPS to use all haste gems?
    A: No. As you gain crit rating hit rating becomes more valuable(to an extent).

    Q: Is Black Magic better than Berserking?
    A: No. Black Magic sims 51.18 dps below Berserking.

    Q: Isn't Fire Nova glyph a superior choice to <insert glyph>?
    A: No. Fire Nova does pathetic single target damage. In order to make use out of this glyph you constantly need multiple enemies within range(think Heroic Anub'arak).

    Q: Why is Fire Nova so low on the priority list even though your spec has two points dedicated to improving it?
    A: It yields the most DPS. The alternative talents to spend points on are Reverberation and Ancestral Knowledge, both of which simulate less DPS than the points in Fire Nova.

    Q: Why aren't you using Glyph of Fire Elemental? If a fight is more than 330 seconds it is a superior glyph.
    A: There are very few encounters, even in hardmodes, that would benefit from this glyph. You would see it "useful" for Heroic Sindragosa, Heroic Putricide, and Heroic Arthas.

    Q: <insert other BiS list> is supposed to be better and has <insert item/gem/etc> different.
    A: This list is made as a Tauren with generic professions. Not everyone is an Orc/Troll/Draenei with Engineering/Jewelcrafting/Blacksmithing. If you are a different race or profession than the BiS list uses your items and gemming might be slightly different. The intent of this thread is to provide baseline BiS values.

  3. Q: Your list is using half hit and half haste gems. Wouldn't it be more DPS to use all haste gems?
    A: No. As you gain crit rating hit rating becomes more valuable(to an extent).
    I only see 1 haste gem - feet. Is this a mistake?

    Q: <insert other BiS list> is supposed to be better and has <insert item/gem/etc> different.
    A: This list is made as a Tauren with generic professions. Not everyone is an Orc/Troll/Draenei with Engineering/Jewelcrafting/Blacksmithing. If you are a different race or profession than the BiS list uses your items and gemming might be slightly different. The intent of this thread is to provide baseline BiS values.
    The list is running 523 hit rating. So you clearly focus on hit and you also write that hit becomes more valueable the more crit you gain. Wouldn't this make http://wotlk.openwow.com/item=54576 superior to http://wotlk.openwow.com/item=50604?

  4. I only see 1 haste gem - feet. Is this a mistake?
    No, the gems are correct.
    I just run EnhSim myself with the gear config from elitistjerks and I get the same dps numbers.
    I also tried to replace 1 haste gem with 1 hit gem and vice versa and it appears to be a dps drop.

    About the FAQ:
    I just copy pasted it from elitistjerks.
    My assumption is that the OP used previously a different gear combination with http://wotlk.openwow.com/item=50706 and half hit, half haste gems.
    After changing the gear he forgot to update the FAQ.

    I will test the ring with EnhSim.

    I plan to post a second BiS list with the Orc racial, a slightly different talent spec and BS+JC as professions.
    So far I reached 13114 dps with it.

    The reason the list uses the Marrowgar Ring is because this list is fine tuned to get the absolute most amount of haste out of the gear while still reaching the highest crit cap possible (by attaining more hit). Then comes the question of higher crit, agility, AP and less glancing blow VS more haste, hit and a yellow socket on Molten when comparing these rings on Molten.

    The crit cap formula is as follows: Maximum Critical Chance (MCC) = 76 (Chance to be Dodged) - (Chance to be Parried) (Chance to Miss) + 4.6. When running this calc for oneself, it is important to take into account elemental devastation procs, which will, at this range of gear, proportionally have a very high uptime.

    On retail, you can't get more than 75% crit with any melee DPS class due to there being a constant 25% glancing blow chance. On Molten this is not the case, and by going over the crit cap, one is able to push glancing blows off the table. E.g. If I had 85% crit here, I would only have a 15% glancing blow chance.

    When using retail based resources such as EnhSim or Elitist Jerks (which offer a unique insight into the class, don't get me wrong), one must still take into account the various bugs that still exist here on Molten.

    Also, a BiS list for Draenei would differ slightly too, due to their 1% static hit racial.

    Thats true. In the current state Crit and Agi might outperform haste because getting rid of glancing blow should be a enormous dmg boost.

    Anyway, I hope that everything will work mostly "bug free" with the new Lordaeron core so its worth to use EnhSim.

    Correct me if im wrong but the crit cap seems to be 76% and the glancing blow chance 24%.
    At leasts thats my conclusion after using EnhSim because with the current gear I have 75,3% melee crit chance and a MCC of 75.37%.
    Now when I replace http://wotlk.openwow.com/item=38986 with http://wotlk.openwow.com/item=44469 I have 75,03% crit and a MCC of 75% and I still lose around 30 dps.

  8. I simcraft a BiS gear for Orc with JC+BS.
    The additional haste from JC and BS seem to outperform Hyperspeed from ENG.
    Orc has the best racials followed by troll.
    Tried a different gear combinations with http://wotlk.openwow.com/item=54576 and http://wotlk.openwow.com/item=50633 but both items mean a dps drop.
    http://wotlk.openwow.com/item=54576 makes the character over crit capped and the arp of http://wotlk.openwow.com/item=50633 seems to be less benefical than the additional hit of http://wotlk.openwow.com/item=51890.

    Oh of course. My mistake.

  10. Added a AoE priority order for attacking +3 mobs after several tests with EnhSim.
    Using 5x maelstrom for lightning bolt if chain lightning is on cd can be a minor dps increase but is risky because u might lack maelstrom stacks when chain lightning is ready again.
    The easier and usually more efficient way is to save 5x maelstrom for chain lightning and dont use lightning bolt at all when it comes to AoE dmg.

  11. Melee hit rating has been corrected and is now capped at 8%
    That hit rating is total **** at this moment

  12. Melee hit rating has been corrected and is now capped at 8%

    Abilities are capped at 8%, your white hits aren't. And you need 17% spell hit for FS, LB and CL.

  13. Abilities are capped at 8%, your white hits aren't. And you need 17% spell hit for FS, LB and CL.
    In general when u are raid buffed u need 368 hit rating to reach the spell hit cap of 17%.
    The problem with such a low amount of hit is that ur melee crit cap(MCC) is around 71%
    Now when u are BiS geared, fully raid buffed and the elemental devastation talent is up u have a melee crit chance of around 75% which means that u are 4% over the melee crit cap.
    In this case it is worth to get additional hit to increase the melee crit cap(MCC) to 75%.

    Now on Warmane everything is bugged. It even seems to be beneficial to go over the crit cap because it falsely reduce the glancing blow chance.
    Its hard to calculate a BiS gear in the current buggy state here....

  14. Ever tried (for a draenai) using the Baltharu's Gift?
    (i don't know how to link the item, so i'll just write the stats here)

    96 Agility
    84 Stamina
    [ ] Red Socket
    Socket Bonus: +4 Agility

    138 Attack Power
    64 Critical Strike Rating
    48 Expertise Rating


    You don't need that extra hit as a draenai and you could change some expertise gems with some attack power or even other haste gems?

    http://wotlk.openwow.com/item=54557 is worse than http://wotlk.openwow.com/item=51890 because it makes u over crit capped.
    If u are draenei just replace some of the hit gems with haste gems.
