Challenge Modes [Disc]

3 posts in this topic

Heya everyone,

 

I am currently finishing up with Heroic HFC having only come back to the game about 2 weeks ago and finding things pretty smooth. I am looking to once again step into Challenge Modes but have a few quick questions...

 

1. Is there any kind of BiS or rough list on items to obtain for challenge mode?

 

2. If question 1 was No, is there items I should look for?? A few people have been saying go for anything with Crit and Haste, anything else disregard, is this true?

 

3. Trinkets, should I carry on here with anything that will boost Crit and Haste?

 

4. In terms of Spec, anything special I need to have here? I would assume depending on the group this would change anyways.

 

5. Is Holy more viable for Challenge modes or am I okay to stick with Disc? I have been playing disc the most and haven't really stepped into Holy

 

Appreciate all the help

1. Yes and no. There's none for Disc Priests but the best general list for CMs is: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1NGwP4A21KkCSV_7oMS5-yK-z0af9GtR-B901aWfjKf4/edit#gid=916943021

 

2. I really like Mastery and Multistrike (Crit can replace Multi). Haste can kinda work out when you're just learning the pulls, but if you're doing that you should go Holy instead. Holy goes for Multistrike and Haste.

 

3. Anything with Int + any stat(but spirit) works fairly well, just avoid the dungeon trinkets. If you really need mana then get the Everburning Candle

 

4.

15: Spectral Guise Let's you drink earlier than you normally would on trash pulls

45: Mindbender / Power Word: Solace

75: Power Infusion

90: They're all really bad, i personally picked Divine Star

100: Clarity of Will / The others are VERY bad

 

5. Disc is definitely better than Holy. However, you need also need knowledge on every pull. Once you fall behind there's no coming back. When you make a mistake you're going to notice people's health going down: 100%->80%->50%. Unless you're used to people being low you're going to go into a mid-high level panic and spamming buttons like Prayer of Healing, in which case it is better to go Holy. Regardless, stay Disc if you're new to Holy.

I don't have many answer, though I would like to add some questions to the topic.

How far behind is Holy Priest? is it close or is CM with disc just supperior?
I'm in the case were I'm much more comfortable with Holy than Disc.

Stats wise as disc, I've heard Mastery > Crit from a guy who did 8/8 CM as disc. Though the places I've read online says Haste > Crit. What is the correct and why not Mastery? and is Multistrike viable as Disc?

Also, when it comes to stats. I have single stat items with only Multistrike and only Mastery. Are these items better? or do you want the mix of stats? 

Anyone have the VALUE of stats for different specs? Can't find this online.

Thanks
