HSW (Healer Stat Weights) is an addon that automatically calculates your stat weights based on the content that you’re currently running. It’ll tell you what your strongest and weakest stats are and you can use that information for you enchants, gems and general gearing decisions. It does all the work for you so that you can avoid any complicated math.
You can pick up the addon at this link: https://wow.curseforge.com/projects/qe-dungeon-tips. It is also available through the Twitch client (QE Mythic+ Dungeon Tips) and at leading retailers everywhere. Version 4 is now live, complete with all BFA dungeons.
The fantastic guide writers in the Dreamgrove discord have created a new site for all things Druid. Dreamgrove.gg has in-depth guides (with 100% less Google Docs), articles and key information on Balance, Guardian and Feral druids and will sit alongside QuestionablyEpic as a sister site.
Antorus: The Burning Throne adds 7 new healing trinkets across 11 bosses and there’s plenty of variety; however, our options might be limited due to the power of the Pantheon trinkets that drop off Argus himself (herself? Itself?). Blizzard have otherwise done a fantastic job balancing the Antorus trinkets and almost all of them are at least ‘pretty good’. Weak Auras are included where advantageous.
The China and APAC (basically Australia & Korea) regions went head-to-head over the weekend to decide the first four teams to make it to the global bracket for a piece of the $100,000 prize pool.
We’re almost a year into Legion now and Mythic+ dungeons have changed the 5 man landscape with increasingly difficult content giving many a sense of expansion-long progression. Despite the popularity of the new format, decent guides have been hard to find with most focusing on the M+0 dungeons. They leave out key aspects like Trash percentage and how to handle high Tyrannical bosses. The Mythic+ […]
In 7.2.5 Blizzard introduced a new system of RNG into the game, featuring it on several legendary items and a trinket. It was accompanied by a brief explanation in a Reddit developer AMA. It’s designed to smooth out your luck, making chance-based items much more consistent at the cost of the huge streaks you can achieve with pure chance. Think of it as ‘Good luck […]
Don’t worry, it’s not time to re-roll Monk just yet. All areas of the site are updated for the new patch, and after reading this post you might want to stop by the FAQ. Let’s comb through the patch notes. All healing reduced by 4% Urgh, nerfs. Given our power over the last few months this isn’t too significant. Aman’Thul’s Wisdom maximum extend reduced to 9 […]
UPDATE: Trinket numbers were adjusted again with the live patch. All values contained within have been similarly updated. Tomb of Sargeras adds six new healer trinkets across nine bosses and the effects vary wildly. In Nighthold we got one great (Map), one situationally powerful (Cake), one class dependent (Paradox), and one outright terrible (Mirror) trinket. They almost all received immediate buffs a week into the patch. […]
The 7.2 legendary changes are now live. Some of the changes are quite significant (shoulders) while others are smaller and just push items further into their niche. Some brief information on each is included below, and this post will change if any new theorycrafting is done. The changes can be found here. The Legendary Tier List has also been updated for 7.2 and can be […]
