Level 80 Druid Gear Ranking

Author: inwowgold Source:

So far we've been skating through WotLK on T6 gear, ignoring all the quest rewards. But then yesterday we got the first upgrade and decided to revisit the question of gear rankings. Theorycrafting for level 80 feral druids is better now, what can we learn?
Above all, it is for cat DPS, we believe Toskk is still the best model out there. We took the default settings in the calculator (5000 attack power, 40% crit) and turned on all the feral DPS talents, Blessings of Kings and so on.
These level 80 results are quite a bit different from the level 70 3.0 rankings we looked at before. In particular, agility is way down compared to its old position. Maybe because so much of our damage is now based on Rake and Rip DoTs? Here's the Pawn scale for the above rankings. Assumes rare quality gem is a must.
And also, we've cooked up a Pawn scale for bear gear. You have a lot of theorycrafting models to choose from for bears - Karthis has a nice write-up. In the past we've gone with Emmerald's numbers for bear gear, but he's still not officially updated for 3.0 or Wrath yet. So we looked at Toskk's new bear TTL model mostly because it's easy for us to play with it. (Rawr may also be a good choice.) Here's what we get for default stats on Toskk, with Blessing of Kings, an armor metagem, and all tanking talents.
The main thing that leaps out is that stamina is twice as good as agility. Is that true? It really depends on what you're optimizing: mitigation or avoidance. The reality is you want a good mix of the both and it may be that the Toskk TTL model doesn't really capture that since it's assuming you're getting no healing. Then again the new diminishing returns system means Agility gets less useful the more you have, so maybe these rankings are right. We'll have to see. In the meanwhile we'll use the following Pawn scale to help us eyeball gear upgrades, at least until the bear armor nerf comes.
These scales are going to be way off for anyone under level 80. If we were you we'd ignore it; just pick up a bunch of stamina and agility for tanking, strength and agility for DPSing, and otherwise pick the armor based on what looks best. Once you get to level 75 or so we'd start looking at these rankings.
The "enough stamina" thing will just have to develop. For our part, we definitely experienced it in Burning Crusade, mostly through the problem of not having enough stamina after heavily agility-optimizing the gear following Emmerald's high gear list. Part of what the ranks above reflect is the diminishing returns on avoidance stats like agility and dodge. Too bad bears can't block, but we have high armor from trinkets and rings to make up for it.
At length, we want to say, there are two ways to get ratings for gem sockets. The hard way is to figure out what the best gem is and do arithmetic. The easy way is to just ask the Toskk calculator to show you the values for gems and plug them in. Be sure you set up Pawn the right way to respect gem values: you may well decide to put blue gems in yellow sockets and Pawn's smart enough to decide whether the socket bonus is worth it.
