Breaking 4pc resto set

7 posts in this topic

Hi all,

 

A quick question. I was lucky enough to get two drops from Ordos, namely

Chestguard of Pyrrhic Immolation and Olivia's Graceful Gaze

 

I currently use the 4pc set, which is a mix of normal, flex and LFR. I can replace my head (LFR) and chest (flex) with the warforged Ordos items. It'll be a significant ilvl upgrade, but obviously I'll lose my 4pc bonus. Is it worth it for me to use the warforged items anyway?

 

For those interested, here's my armory link: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/turalyon/Ashmin/simple

I'd say that the 4-pc set is awesome (and I know it is, I use it all the time) but only when you remember to use it. Since you get a big ilvl upgrade from re-equipping, then do it. Once you get the chance to take the Normal or Heroic tier pieces, I suggest downgrading to tier just so you get the 4-set, then learning to use it often.

 

If you get a choice between the chest and the head for your Normal peice, take the head as it has Haste.

 

 

Try them out on a training dummy and see what your dps looks like, between the two.

 

Well that's not entirely constructive, since this is a question for healers.

Yeah I would also break the set. 4 piece is nice but since a large part of your healing doesn't benefit from it (healing rain + totems) it's not worth that much of an itemlevel difference. They have pretty good stats too, no mastery!

Yes, the important thing being that if you are able to get the Normal mode tier pieces, go for those when you can. The 4-pc bonus is genuinely good :)

So I broke up the 4pc set, got my legendary meta (gogo runestone grind) en regemmed.

 

I have a follow-up question now. I regemmed/reforged into haste now that I have my LMG and I sit at 30% haste without a raidbuff. Since the spell haste buff is not guaranteed in our raid setup, I wonder if it is worth it to stick to 30% unbuffed and run the "risk" of having 35% raidbuffed, or regem/-forge to 25%?

 

On a side note, I do miss the 4pc bonus...

If it's not guaranteed, I prefer to stay at 30% unbuffed. You can try it the other way, but since Haste is a good throughput stat anyway it shouldn't deter you :)
