I got 2 trinket atm, and cant find out wich two to use.
Light of the Cosmos
Essence of Terror
Relic of Yu'lon
the last one is mandatory... but wich one of the two others is to prefer?
her is a link to my armory:
I lose like 800 mastery by using the essence but gain the intel, besides the proc
What to do?
Try switching out the two first trinkets while doing a full boss rotation (10 mins approx) on a dummy and see which trinket does more dps.
Just from looking at the comments for each of the two in question, it looks like LotC has a 45sec internal CD while EoT has something much longer 105 sec internal cooldown. but a proc that is 3x the value in haste. If haste is your best stat and you can use/abuse the proc when it happens then you should probably use the EoT. But now I'm going to go back on that and show some maths that may/may not reflect the way you use these.
I usually prefer trinkets with static Int rather than Int procs, especially when its an equip-proc. However, having nearly twice the uptime I feel like LotC should perform much better than EoT. I don't have the trinkets, this is just my impression of how well they'd perform.
Using the numbers from the comments, and assuming no downtime between procs (which there will be) The procs will have an equivalent value of...
LotC - 20/45 = 44% uptime => .44*2866 = 1273.77 Int .
So Slightly less than
EoT - 20/105 = 19% uptime => .19*6121 = 1165.90 Haste.
So Slightly less than
The minor loss of haste in the long run and the drastic difference in uptime, LotC is well worth the tradeoff in Int. Add in the fact that LotC's haste is reforgable makes it the clear choice in my opinion just by looking at the numbers on paper.
Tnx for the replies...
I got the same idea and look on it as u.. but every where i se a post with dps value is says that EoT should be the best.... but when i did try it out in a raid, i came out with LotC as winner...
For me it seems that EoT should perform best in teory but LotC did i practical fighting. It might be different when the talk goes to normal or HC versions....
Thats why i did make this post :D
Theres one last thing that I would consider if you're moving into HC raiding. You should look at your
and see if the EoT proc gets you anything special that you can use/abuse. There may be some room for EoT to out perform LotC there but thats about the only situation I can imagine.
