By far the best damage increasing consumable around, totally worth the materials. A raiding rogue or warrior should not go without.
This is at the moment still the best Agility based elixir. Although the Elixir of Major Agility features more Agility, it has less crit rating and thus, this potion wins in the end, with only 10 less Agility, gaining 8 crit rating.
If you're not Herbalism yourself, ask a friend to farm the mats for you because since BC the are expensive as hell in our AH.
Luckily I am Herbalism !:P
You can nolonger use both this and Agility elixirs at the same time as said above. Both are Battle Elixirs meaning one will replace the other.
Something worth pointing out is that this pot vs. an Elixir of Major Agility is pretty much a wash, class depending. The Major Agi has more agi and less crit rating, yet the Mongoose has less agi and more crit rating - if you're looking at these pots primarily for the crit they provide, it's almost identical (as last I recall most classes run about 29 agi to 1% crit, feel free to correct me though if I'm wrong).
Of course the "raw stats" boost to Agility on the Elixir of Major Agility is of course a greater gain for, say, a tank, as it boosts armor and dodge as well as a tiny boost to crit, but I guess the point I'm trying to make is that if you have the option of one or the other to buy and you're after offensive stats, just take the cheaper one. It's pretty much the same thing made with different mats.
For a DPS warrior, these are actually better than the Elixirs of Major Agility. They offer 0.09% more crit at 70. Alright, that's pretty negligible, but these are considerably cheaper.
MAJOR AGILITY (with Kings)
35 agi____________38.5 agi
20 crit rating_______20 crit rating
25 agi____________27.5 agi
28 crit rating_______28 crit rating
(agility per 1% crit) (crit equivalent of agility)
22.1 (1% crit)______1.267______ 0.905
These are my figures for crit rating from each when coupled with Kings. Agility may offer more benefits to some classes. Feel free to correct any errors. All results acquired from using WoWWiki's formulas, assuming a level 70 character. Also, if someone knows how to make an organized list, feel free to do so.
These are the stats that I've calculated and tested for a lvl 68 Rogue
Crit chance +1.96%
Major Agility -
Crit chance +1.80%
So Mongoose gives you an extra crit chance of 0.16% or looking at it another way, an extra crit every 625 hits on average. Personally I'll take the extra armor and dodge from Major Agility although there is very little in it either way.
Awesome for a crit / ret specced pally.
but these are still a nice thing to use in OL since they stack with Elixirs of major agility. +60 AGI and +48 crit rating. nothing to sneeze at.
I like these potions best when grinding, absolutely great for rogues with sword/damage build.
sell for 17-25g a stack on my server. HOTT.
These are one of the best pots for high end instances to increase your damage.
Im a rogue and these things rock! :D
I use this potion while tanking and frankly have not found anything else to do with the Arthas' Tears that I have collected. Question: Would the disease effect prevent a rogue from vanishing after hitting you and becoming infected? I've never rolled a rogue toon, so I have no idea.
If you drink this then the 25 agility potion, they WILL stack.
Does this stack with agility pots?
this pot goes over the Agi Pot.. doesnt not stack
This doesn't appear to increase critical hit chance at all for a mage. That doesn't surprise me, but I took one just to see if it might affect spell crit. Either it has zero effect on a mage's crit chance, or this Extended Character Stats mod doesn't work. Oddly, it didn't even increase my melee crit chance.
