Also, after extensive* testing, I found that 4.0.6 - 3 crashed like yours when I tried to search for Fien using the armoury within SimCraft. But when I pasted the finished url to Fien instead, it worked fine.

Added Fien to the front post. Haste is waaaaay better for you at the moment. And you aren't even close to a threshold. Not even a BoA one.

Actually if you look at your graph you can see that that value for Haste isn't going to last. You can also see that it will still be better than Crit though.

AMAZING. Thanks very much. That's a big eye opener there. Haste ftw.
Reforging and regemming with int/haste gems is the way to go it appears.

I've looked over Fiena's one Troy did and its a bit overwhelming.
Could i get an explanation what exactly i need to learn from it and could you do one for Celellach?

Thanks in advance.

The primary things I use these schemes for myself are gloating at the possible dps I can do, but somehow never reach :p
And the scalefactors. These indicate what stats gives the best dps upgrades for me with the gear and talents I have. Keep in mind that Troy has the ability to use several buffs in his calculations as well. I think he uses the ones that we normally get in raids (Priest stam, BoM etc etc).

The rest is interesting material on what to prioritize in my cast sequences.
I recently learned (and still have to incorporate in my sequences) that I need to keep the soulfire buff up. Not the debuff that my imp casts as well, stupid me, but the 8% dmg buff I get...that I never seemed to notices...)
I still forget it lots of times though.

Added Cel.

It's moaning about your Colossus Smash glyph. Is it new? I notice that when you hover over it in the armoury it doesn't have a tooltip with details about it like the others..

Troy, I think you used caster buffs for Cel's dps scheme.

It isn't new but it won't have any effect on Cel's dps unless he was sundering, which he isn't on that sim.

yeah, the glyph is pretty helpful as a lot of times im in a raid/group where the tank isnt a warrior so this saves me from wasting a global on sunder.

its also new since cata, but im sure its been updated since then.

It's too difficult to work out what buffs we might have so I just tick them all except for Focus Magic.

We should have them all on a good night. (Except for Focus Magic)
