Personal Goals, Retribution Paladin Suramar 2-Set and Karazhan Set Sims

Whilst raiding is done till Monday (Mythic Odyn is some piece of work), there are still strives to be made in order to continue to get stronger outside of our main guild activities.

Improve Faulty Countermeasure

Obtain Terrorbound Nexus…a poor mans Aran’s Relaxing Ruby. I currently don’t have an AoE trinket for M+, so I just wander in with a Single Target spec/setup, this should change just to optimise the process of dungeoning.

Last weeks M+ boosting of alts got me in possession of the Inferno Breastplate from Court of Stars (870). My current stat weight has shifted to Versatility being my best stat, and the 2-Set procs 3300 Versatility which got me pondering how good this actually is…so instead of thinking about it…Sim it!

For this sim, I’m currently using (Trix Armory) 890 on both Shoulder and Legs (Legs has socket 150 vers), and here’s what I got when I replace them.

As illustrated, 2-Set can be quite lucrative and definitely worth a second glance if you’ve overlooked it.

Karazhan Set
With the inclusion of summoning Nightbane, you’re given the opportunity to obtain Chestplate of Impenetrable Darkness which empowers the trinket (30% I believe) Eye of Command. I’ve decided to Sim the possibilities of getting the trinket and using it by itself and/or with the chest.

For this sim, I’m currently using (Trix Armory) 880 Crit/Haste+Vers Gem chest and 860 Memento of Angerboda before replacing them.

Just goes to show how bad my trinket setup is.

Note:- Whilst it does seem like I give Memento of Angerboda a bad rep, it’s still a really good trinket since Simulations don’t take into account other people dying which can multi proc Crit/Haste/Mastery (Along with Retribution)…I just prefer to have something more stable.

Current Goals outside of raiding

• Vault of the Wardens (ilvl855+ Faulty Countermeasure)
• The Arcway (Frozen Pendulum Shoulderguards & Terrorbound Nexus)
• Karazhan (Chestplate of Impenetrable Darkness, Eye of Command and Aran’s Relaxing Ruby (Though not bloody likely!)
