…I hit it on the weekend and now…
I am an UNSTOPPABLE CRITTING MACHINE!!11!!!1
Ahem… well, my rogue is. The 75 to 79 band really is an incredibly uneven playing ground. At 79 in 78/79 cata gear fully chanted and gemmed I’m sitting at over 37K hits with crit at 56% and dodge at 52%. I’m a rogue so I still have to play smart but have been guilty a few times now of popping Evasion (glyphed to last 20 seconds) and going toe to toe with DKs and warriors with my 102% dodge and effectively double hits. My only regret is that I don’t know whether my rampages are met with stunned silence or nerdrage.
Yesterday in AV I took out a stealthed rogue, vanished and got his mage mate then beat down the remaining warrior before capping the node. The warrior tried to run… : ) Suweet!
Here’s what I’m running at the moment. Total cost for this setup, entirely purchased from the AH (chants and JC work mostly by my alts though), has been under 5000g. For the fun involved it’s been gold well spent.
High 70s cata gear is a loophole no doubt but a legit one which I thoroughly recommend you take up.
