Princess theradras scepter vs gatorbite axe with Axemastery?

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I've gotten both princess theradras scepter and Gatorbite axe in Maraudon.

Does the 5% crit from axe mastery outweigh the higher weapon damage and slightly higher dps from the mace?

Axe is better yes 

For autos, axe wins at low crit.  Math:

normal white hit (average) = (low + high) / 2

crit white hit (average) = 2 * normal

avg white hit = normal * (1 - crit%) + normal * 2 * crit%

old post: For autos, normal hit scepter is 158 and axe is 146.5.  At 0% base crit (i.e. 0% mace crit and 5% axe crit), avg white hits (crits taken into account) are 158 for scepter and 154 for axe, so scepter is ~3% better.  The gap grows slowly as base crit increases.  For yellow hits the gap is bigger due to the slower speed of scepter.

edit: forgot one thing sorry, to divide by speed!  In this case the axe wins (for auto attack) at low crit and the scepter wins at (obscenely) high crit.  Sorry for half-assing it.

bottom line: However, the yellow hit is (always) better with scepter, and to see which one really wins (they are really fucking close) you'd need to model white hits and yellow hits (talent/rotation dependent).  In other words need more information to really answer your question.

So many threads like this.   

Just start posting your math homework as well I guess.

Probably because the answers aren't as obvious as many people think.

Just play the game. Worry about what's better at end game or ask your mom.
