TD (and back in the days, EV) is a special case mind you, its 18% hp regardless of ilvl instead of flat dmg. personally, i was so disappointed in my stars2 performace even on a 475 that i cleansed it off.  it mightve been the superior choice for raidbosses - but lets face it, with LFR as the highest lvl raidcontent i can do, ill stick with TD for m+ where it utterly outperforms stars. 

i wouldnt even rely on sims for this, on multi-mob pulls (i.e. all of em) you will never get more than 1 stack on a random target - extreme case here was the final UR boss where, during the entire 6min fight, i had a single star hit the boss, the rest hit random 1hp adds. its just not practical to use. tentacle wouldve actually been damn amusing here, as it retargets with ai speed and precision each time it instantly overkills the 1hp adds, one of those mightve wiped the entire add wave.

I think stars is just a bit too good for fire mages compared to the other options, but I will keep the 470s around in case some combination of gear otherwise permits me to use it somehow. 😕

That said, you may have a point Welsper and I might keep an eye out for how well it's actually stacking in practice as I may be better with the 470s anyway.

I’ve got the rank 1 6% TD and it’s still better than everything else I’ve had in that slot. Go random world quest reward!

When you ran your sims, did you give the sim the option to swap out other pieces to avoid breaching your corruption cap? I don't know what rank mindflay you have but the sim will ignore it if it would push you over your set corruption cap unless you give it enough other options to shuffle pieces in and out

The tool does warn you if that's the case. Also I can see the actual numbers for both of the simmed items under the final gear picks so I can see what they generated.

The stars option has higher corruption anyway (50), the alternatives only have a corruption of 35.

With the 50 piece I'm at 33 overall which is fine.

 

Edit: Oh, you mean other slot corruption pieces? I only have one other piece of corruption that's usable (i.e. not bracers) and I'm using it.

As you can imagine we're very busy going out and doing things this week. :D

Back to that construction site again is it? Some people will do anything to go out!
