Did you know that Haste Rating affects how often you trinket can proc? Well it can, at least for RPPM (real procs per minute) trinkets. I’ve got all the details you need!
What is RPPM?
Real procs per minute. This means if your trinket has an RPPM of 1, it will proc once per minute, on average. If you have an RPPM of 2, it will proc 2 times per minute on average. With the RPPM system, it doesn’t matter how many spells you use or swings you take (like it does on chance-to-proc on hit trinkets).
So, it’s meant to be pretty simple: The trinket will proc X times per minute on average. (For a detailed post on RPPM by Blizzard, click here).
Haste affects the RPPM
The only thing that can make your trinket proc more often is Haste. This includes Haste Rating from gear, the 5% Haste raid buff, and Heroism. Attack speed buffs do not count, only Haste. So if you have 20% Haste, you increase the chance to proc by 20%. So if you have an RPPM of 1 (1 proc per minute) and 20% Haste, your trinket would proc 20% more often. So that would be 1.2 times per minute. It’s that simple!
How Mr. Robot handles Haste for trinkets procs
Mr. Robot calculated fairly accurate, representative sample frequencies and crit/haste values for each class/spec. We then simulate the trinkets using those values, to get a ranking that is close to true. For the first 2 weeks after 5.2, we dynamically calculated the trinkets based off of your personal Haste. However, that caused ‘double counting’ for people who imported stat weights from SimC. So we changed our approach to the one described here.
I have a super detailed post about how Mr. Robot simulates and calculates trinkets, if that interests you. It also lists all of the new 5.2 trinkets with links to WoWDB so you can see which ones are RPPM.
