PostSubject: Shadow and Hit 3.3   Sun Jan 24, 2010 9:46 am

Hello everyone, you may know as Frmercury from the WoW Priest forums where you've probably seen my sticky Shadow Raiding: the Primer, 3.3 Edition, or read one of my many posts as Woaden.

Today I'm discussing Hit pieces in ICC.

I'm sure that most of you have been venturing into Icecrown Citadel at this point, many of you making it far into the new wings. I'm sure you've noticed along the way the surprising lack of Hit gear. This is in stark contrast to Trial of the (Grand) Crusader and Ulduar where Hit gear was relatively abundant. Now it is prudent when planning our desired upgrades in Icecrown to pay special attention to which Hit pieces we will be going for.

Below is a list with the relevant math on Hit as it relates the Pseudo Power of the BiS (obtainable) vs BiS Hit (obtainable) using Izolight's PP values and BiS list found here.



Neck:
Blood Queen's Crimson Choker
vs
Amulet of the Silent Eulogy

234.24-197.78=36.45
52/36.45=

1.43 Ratio for 52 Hit


Back:
Jaina's Radiance
vs
Cloak of Displacement

254.54-187.96=66.58
49/66.58

.74 Ratio for 49 Hit


Wrist:
Death Surgeon's Sleeves
vs
The Lady's Brittle Bracers

210.1-188.38=21.72
45/21.72

2.07 Ratio for 45 Hit


Belt:
Crushing Coldwraith Belt
vs
Belt of the Biting Cold

317.18-236.34=80.84
58/80.84

.72 Ratio for 58 Hit


Boots:
Plague Scientist's Boots
vs
Boots of the Icy Floe
and
Deathfrost Boots

317.18-255.3=61.88
60/61.88

.97 Ratio for 60 Hit

317.18-251.7=65.48
64/65.48

.98 Ratio for 64 Hit


Ring:
Ring of Rapid Ascent
vs
Valanar's Other Signet Ring

231.74-202.8=28.94
38/28.94

1.31 Ratio for 38 Hit


Main Hand:
Frozen Bonespike
vs
Blade of Tarasque

835.39-785.16=50.23
51/50.23

1.02 Ratio for 51 Hit


Off Hand:
Shadow Silk Spindle
vs
Chalice of Benedictus

225.58-168.88=56.7
43/56.7

.76 Ratio for 43 Hit


Wand:
Corpse-Impaling Spike
vs
Petrified Ivy Sprig

127.74-86.32=41.42
29/41.42

.70 Ratio for 29 Hit


The higher the ratio, the better the the amount of PP per Hit gained.

As you can see there a few standouts that easily make the list. Lets start by taking the Hit assumed to be pieces commonly accepted as BiS that include the T10 264 Gloves and the Exalted rep ring from the Ashen Verdict.


+72 Hit on Gloves
+51 Hit on Ring
------------------
+123 Hit

That would mean that we need another 140 to 166 to be hit capped with and without Heroic Presence respectively.

Wrist:
The Lady's Brittle Bracers
2.07 Ratio for 45 Hit

95 to 121 more needed

Neck:
Amulet of the Silent Eulogy
1.43 Ratio for 52 Hit

43 to 69 more needed

Those were relatively easy. That leaves us with 43 to 69 more Hit that we need from gear. Valanar's Other Signet Ring seems like an obvious choice for the next best ratio available, but that would leave us under Hit capped even with Heroic Presence. Since 50% of Shadow Priests don't have the luxury of a Blueberry, the next best option becomes:

Feet:
Deathfrost Boots
.98 Ratio for 64 Hit

This will put you at 10.83% Hit, .17 off cap, over with a Draenei. This is the highest setup that can Hit Cap you with Draenei or come the closest without.

Here is a Wowhead profile of the set: http://www.wowhead.com/?profile=20730929
Which Sims to: 11104 DPS

This is the highest Simmed DPS: http://www.wowhead.com/?profile=19501640
Which Sims to 11140 DPS

Seeing how close the DPS values for both sets are, and considering the break in DPS rotation that being under Hit capped would lead to: the potential loss of ~30 DPS for the added convenience of Hit cap is more than worth it.

One final note: in my set the difference between a normal rotation and one without MB is less than 50 DPS. It is very likely that with one or two Hard Mode upgrades MB in our rotation will be a DPS loss. More information on this can be found Here.
