WHU: Great Gear Boosts Haste Value


Frostheim at Warcraft Hunters Union: This is something we talked about on the podcast a couple weeks ago (and maybe touched on even earlier), but my email box tells me that I never actually posted about it, so…

The effect of many pieces of the new RPPM gear is being felt. This started with our trinkets using Blizzard’s Real Proc Per Minute system, that was designed to give us a random feel of procs, but with some predictability as well.
