Ok, I'm honestly at a loss here. I'm wanting to get my pal into arenas, same as my hunter and rogue. I know how to heal and I'm not running double deeps or beast cleave. I just kinda don't like the whole ret, thing. I leveled the toon as prot, on and off between 3.1 - 3.3.
See, my /crai is idk HOW to gem this toon. The spec I'm using is 51/20/0, and I've been told on holy gear to just.. match the sockets. Mix all sp, int, and some mp5. I was told the reason being is because there's no way to tell how long a match will last, so having hard heals, as well as a decent sized mana pool was the way to go.
But I'd like some better info. I'd just like some positive feedback to let me know if I'm doing it right.
I wish I could tell you something about arena, but as far as pve goes stacking int is the way to go. Every gem except your meta and a nightmare tear, int all the way. There are two holy specs. 51/20/0 and 51/5/15 that I see people use. The last one is more of a Flash of light spec. They use different glyphs. Just check out the highest geared players on certain servers on wow-heroes.com. In raids I focus heavily on Holy light healing, BIG heals and never running out of mana. Intellect does this...divine plea rocks.
