|Theorycrafting: calculating my DPS
||[Sep. 13th, 2007|10:00 am]
So I whipped up a little DPS calculator which is unfortunately specific to my talent build. Anyway, it's fun to play with. (for me; results may vary if you're someone else) My current numbers are +644 frost dmg, +598 fire dmg, 524 intellect, 222 crit rating, 83 hit rating. This gives me DPS on my frostbolt/fireblast/total as 621/675/630. For fun, what happens if I replace my gear with gear from Kara? (assuming I get all the same enchants)
Whew. There are some big upgrades in there.
In conclusion (before I lose my mind), with my current gear, to get 1 more point of sustained DPS, I need 18 int or 5 spell crit rating or 1.9 spell hit rating or 2.4 +damage or 2.7 +frost damage. So spell hit rating is 1.25 times valuable as +damage, while spell crit rating is about half as valuable. Good to know!
