3.1 Today (a.k.a. DPS testing and Rewrites)
April 14, 2009 4 Comments
With 3.1 going live today, I’ll be using the small amount of time before our Ulduar raid tonight to get some DPS testing comparing the improved Combat to Assassination, and determine which one (at my gear level at least) is better for single target DPS. I hope to have those results here for your perusal tomorrow, but that’s dependant on server stability, and if they actually come up on time.
I for one am interested to see what effect the changes to Instant poison from a percentage to frequency will have on my DPS. I’m fairly certain that this will move the Librarian’s Paper Cutter farther down the list of main hands, as a lot of what made it so great was the extra Instant Poison procs from the sheer speed of the weapon.
After the theorycrafting is finished I’ll start the rewrites with the Combat and Assassination spec guides, and then I’ll revisit the leveling guides. I’ll be honest though, I’m going to be pretty consumed with enjoying the game most of this week, so it might take some time to get the motivation to stop playing long enough to take the time to update all of the guides.
