Reg Screaming Tiger vs LFR Gao-Rei

Postby Meetspun » Tue Nov 20, 2012 8:16 pm

Hey guys, on all gear lists I've been checking out they place normal mode Screaming Tiger above the LFR Gao-Rei, but looking at various stat weights and doing the numbers it appears that with the 500+ agility gem the LFR weapon pulls ahead. I'm just wondering if this appears to be the case to others or maybe the weights I've been looking at are way outdated. Thanks.

Or, in my case, you continue to use the inscription weapon because spirit kings/tsulong weapon has never dropped.

Tiger has a 6 point higher ilvl, but I know sometimes depending on sockets, what stats, and what not that doesn't necessarily mean better damage.

Normal tiger
4186 dps
1146 agil
871 mas
348 haste
232 exper (my reforge)

LFR Gao
3958 dps
1584 agil (with 500 gem)
704 mas
734 exper

So taking LFR would be -228 dps, -167 mas, and -348 haste, but +438 agil and +502 exp. When I did math on some various stat weights it appears that the agility makes up for those losses and provides more, but I'm not exactly experienced in all the details and wasn't sure if maybe I'm overlooking something here.

Bitch and you shall receive. Finally got a 502 weapon (so at this rate I'll have a sha touched weapon in 2 months).

463 here as well :( I've got the bracers from Spirit Kings 4-5 times between LFR and our regular raid (even though I already had bought the valor bracers). Also haven't found the time to get my Inscriptionist active enough to collect the motes for the weapon yet either....

463 here as well, haven't been able to raid anything but LFR in over 4 weeks because of my work schedule, and I still beat every 478+ ilvl feral I come across in DPS...

It really boils down to Agility versus Weapon DPS, since our secondary stats have been so close (and reforging) it doesn't make a difference for about 2 years now. AFAIK, Agility and Weapon DPS are roughly equal currently, which would make the Sha Touched weapon better since you can get that +500 Agility...

Thanks =P and good luck to you guys with the 463 weapons. If I didn't have the inscription weapon from my rogue I'm pretty sure I would have thrown my monitor across the room by now with the amount of kills/charms used trying to get one.
