Re: So I caved and i'm back
said by blackthought:I'm sure your team was on offense when fighting the Boomkin, otherwise you of course would have just used the portal to yellow instead of running all the way.
I got into a 1v1 situation with a boomkin on the beach, after about 3-4 minutes of neither one of us really getting anywhere I decided to just run towards the rest of the fight which was at yellow. I literally ran from the beach all teh way to yellow with the boomkin firing on me.
Where is slam right now too in terms of rotation? And am i right that we're stacking hit to 7.5%, expertise to 7.5% then crit>strength?
Slam now hits like a truck and you may have noticed is instant cast, while post-nerf HS hits like a wand. All things being equal, Slam should always take priority over HS in the PvP rotation since they both cost the same amount of rage (30). However, HS is on a separate GCD, so if you have rage to spare, its great to tandem with other attacks.
The 7.5% hit/7.5% expertise is only for PVE so you are consistently landing attacks on raid level bosses 3 levels above yours. For PvP, hit cap is only 3% (at level 90), while expertise minimum is 3%. I like to stack a bit more expertise though, just because I hate the tin can sound of being parried. For stat priorities, gems, enchants, etc., you can check out www.noxxic.com for a comprehensive overview, but in a nutshell it's PvP Power>Strength (although it should be balanced somewhat, but that's a whole different discussion and dissection) >Resil>Crit>Haste>Mastery
Edit: HS should be used over Slam, if Taste for Blood stacks to 2 or more and is about to fall off. I find that it doesn't proc all that often though, and the timing is seldom right in a dynamic PvP environment.
i did pepper slam in more than HS because I saw the % tool tip was higher for slam, didn't realize the Taste for blood thing though. I can see that being sick for pve not so much pvp.
Yeah we were on offense:) It was one of those things where I swaped specs on the boat so got a late start then got man handled somewhere after the first gates and we hadn't capped the GY's yet so i had to start all over. Me and the boomkin were solo on the beach.
oh and wth is pvp power? do we get a bump or something?

pvp power only affects abilities used against other players, pvp resilience is the same only against other players.
