Gearing for Disc and Holy
I posted this in the HALP forum but didn't get many responses and it was suggested that I post it here instead.
Anyways, I leveled my priest to 80 at the begining of the month and quickly geared her up as disc. I already have like... almost 3k WHGS and like 5.6 in game gear score or something? I personally think gearscore is crap because when I first hit 80 I knew how to play right and was outhealing full epic healers but it does give you an idea of where my gear is at.
Now I don't do real ICC25 raids. At most I've gotten 6/12 in PuGs. I do ICC10 with my guild but we usually have to PuG a couple of spots because it's just a few of us in real life and we really haven't recruited people to fill the spots yet. Our best ICC10 we did 10/12.
So the point is I don't get a TON of frost badges a week, I can usually get ~55 or so therefore I can get ~ 1 piece of 264 frost gear a week.
So the question is, how do I gear for both holy and disc and not gimp myself with either spec either through gear or gemming since holy does a LOT more haste stacking and SP isn't near as good as it is for disc.
http://www.wowarmory.com/character-s...om&cn=Vallarie is my armory link.
I just got the 245 pants for ToC25 so I'm planning on gemming those for haste. I also have the 232 T9 and 245 badge shoulders that I can regem for haste. I was thinking of getting the T10 helm next.
The biggest problem is that gemming for haste with my good items is sub optimal for disc. I could toss in a 10haste/12sp gem into my cloak and dagger and if I get the T10 helm just keep the one I have.
Helm: The T10 helm was the next piece I was thinking of picking up, but it doesn't have any haste. http://www.wowhead.com/item=50807 is something I could go after for the holy set I suppose. If I were to get the 245 helm form Ony25 then that would work for both specs.
Shoulders: Well I'm appearantly wearing the wrong shoulders. I do have T9 245 shoulders, Was thinking of just gemming the offset with haste, but it's probably not optimal.
Cloak: Just changing the gem I guess it could work for both specs.
Chest: I was thinking of just getting either another merlin's robe made and just gemming it for straight haste.
Bracers: Same thought as with the chest.
Weapon: The socket bonus on this weapon kinda sucks but it just would feel weird having a raw SP gem as holy, but I think I may keep this as is.
Offhand: I have a shriveled heart that I may switch in, what I have now is more for DPS, but for disc it was better than shriveled heart.
Wand: Mine works for both specs I think.
Trinkets: Working on getting Sollace and/or Abacus
Boots: This is one of the harder things for me to figure out. My boots as is are AMAZING for disc. I have http://www.wowhead.com/item=50286 in my bag, but even though they're good holy boots would they be better than mine? I don't really want to regem the ones I have.
Legs: posted above, I have another pair I can gem.
Belt: I suppose I could change the sp/int gem to sp/haste, then would this be acceptable for both specs?
Gloves: Another toughy. They're probably the best I can get for both holy and disc (haste for holy, and for disc they probably have more SP than anything else I could get) the problem is the gem. Right now obviously there's a 23 sp gem in there for disc and I really don't want to carry around tons of haste and sp gems in my bags to re-gem every time I spec flop, what should I do here?
Thanks for the help.
