Figuring out which trinket is the best can be confusing. Especially considering that there are several types of trinkets: Static, RPPM, ICD, On Use, etc. How do you compare them to each other easily? Our spreadsheet makes it easy for anyone to compare the approximate stats of each trinket.
How to use the spreadsheet
First, head over to the original copy of the spreadsheet. Now, go to File -> Make a copy…. This will create your own copy of the spreadsheet that you can edit. The only areas that you want to edit are colored green. Leave everything else alone or you might change critical values. Once you have your own copy, you can use the drop down menus to do almost all of the work for you. “Equip” trinkets by changing their corresponding value to “Yes.” Want to see the stats if they are warforged? Change those corresponding values to “Yes.” Your spreadsheet should look something like this:
The red area all the way to the right gives you the stat results of the trinkets you “equipped.” This even includes the average stat gains from static stats, on use, internal cooldown, and real procs per minute trinkets. For example, you could use this function to easily compare a trinket containing only static stats with a trinket with a RPPM proc.
Now, this is important. When you “unequip” a trinket what was warforged, you need to remember to turn the “warforged?” input to “no.” Failure to do this will make your stat results incorrect. For example, look at the image below:
Notice that I don’t have any trinkets equipped, but the drop-down for “Darmac’s Warforged?” is on “Yes.” Now take a look at the results column. It shows you gaining stats despite having no trinkets equipped. You need to turn the “Warforged?” input to “No” after you unequip a warforged trinket!
We will be releasing more gear spreadsheets and analysis tools over the coming weeks. Additionally, all of our official Best-in-Slot lists will be published very soon!
Thanks for checking out our pre-raid healing trinket spreadsheet! Be sure to check back often for updates and improvements to the spreadsheet, as well as for analysis and best in slot lists for the upcoming Warlords of Draenor instances. If you have any questions or comments about anything mentioned above, feel free to respond in the comment section below or tweet us @Healcraft.
Will you be upgrading this list? It’s awesome btw. I’ve never seen anyone else create a table like that.
I’m having trouble deciding between Auto repairing autoclave and Intuition’s Gift.
Unfortunately I won’t be making another one of these spreadsheets for T18. However, I plan to make them again for the trinkets in Legion. I’m glad you found it useful!
In terms of trinkets for this tier, I suggest you check this out, I recently discussed trinket choices: https://healcraft.net/2015/07/29/t18-restoration-druid-best-in-slot-list/#comment-5644
How do you feel the dark moon card is going to stat out now that there is a 4th upgrade providing an ilevel 680 option?
Sorry for the late response, life has been crazy!
To answer your question, the 4/4 Winged Hourglass maths out to be 169 intellect and ~352 effective spirit. This means going from 3/4 to 4/4 is a gain of 15 intellect and 32 spirit. I’ll probably make a full length post sometime next week discussing trinket choices in 6.1 (including comparing the 4/4 DMC with BRF trinkets). Until then, feel free to use the spreadsheet to look at BRF trinkets’ stats and compare it with 169 intellect and ~352 spirit on the 4/4 DMC. :)
Why is Everburning Candle not on this list?
Unfortunately we forgot to add the candle to the spreadsheet when it was first made. Now it would be a pretty large pain in the neck to integrate it into the interactive chart. If we find time we can work on that, but most of our time is dedicated to getting our class/encounter guides out ASAP right now.
However, here is the math for the candle: 334 Static Intellect, ~10,000 mana per 2 minutes mathing out to be worth ~212 spirit. This means, by our calculations, when comparing the 3/3 upgraded DMC to the Candle: Candle has more than double the intellect than the DMC, but roughly 100 less effective spirit. In general we think the candle is vastly superior to the 3/3 DMC, unless you absolutely need the regen.
Hope that helps, and sorry for the inconvenience!
