Mostly very good, but a few changes I would make:

- Deathchill cloak has no mana. The Intellect and MP5 on Wispcloak will help with mana issues as a fresh 80 (which will happen, regardless of spec).

- Egg of Mortal Essence is pretty crappy nowadays. You'd be better served by saving up Frost badges for Purified Lunar Dust, and farming the +SP trinket from one of the new instances as a placeholder. Leveling up your Alchemy will give you a decent placeholder as well.

Otherwise, you look like you know what you're doing. Go get 'em!

I have been seriously slack at my alchemy. I will work on that when waiting for dungeons. Cheers for the help.

Ok, going to dredge up this thread because my gear has changed a lot since I started it. I have scored myself a spot in an ICC raiding guild and we downed Fester and Rotface on Monday. We struggled to get enough healing on dreamwalker... best effort was about 7.5M health before we were overrun.

I need some new gearing advice. I have about 60 frosts and about 50 triumphs. I did ToC25 but scored no trophies, and we managed to get Anub'arak to about 7% before enrage... meh, it was a pug. According to skada I was very highly placed on heals+absorbs meters.

I don't currently have any plans to change either of my specs to holy.

I'm looking at a new 245 crafted chest with gems and chants to start, but I also could use advice elsewhere, especially in gemming. I'm getting some mixed messages in what gems are top end for disc.

So, yeah. I have access to some ICC, ToC25, triumph and frost... plus the guild seems willing to help craft some gear. If I could get some new advice on gear, gems and enchants it'd really help me out.
