[Holy] Help with trinket decision

8 posts in this topic

Hi there

 

I am a Holy Paladin w/ 9/14 HC SoO and doing quite good for myself. However I recently got into reevaluating my trinkets.

 

I am currently running Prismatic Prison of Pride as a staple while alternating between Thok's and Siegecrafter's depending on what the encounter needs - cleave or more regen.

 

Yesterday I looked in my bags and saw a neglected Heroic Nazgrim's trinket and I thought: "Which is downright better?"

 

AMR says Thok's but I wanted to hear what other Paladins think and run with.

I like Siegecrafter's simply because it provides its benefits across all encounters and all types of healing roles.

 

For the same reason I dislike the RNG trinkets, since healing (and tanking for that matter) is a lot more about controlling your output as opposed to DPS, who can usually better react to procs (snapshotting ftw).

 

So I would run with Siegecrafter's and Prismatic Prison, since these two have strong permanent utility, and Siegecrafter's has a proc which should always be useful.

 

Just my two cents ... interesting discussion.

Yup, I'm a fan of on-use and non-rng trinkets. I use Prismatic and the Siege trinkets. There was a point in time I used thok's trinket on some of the stacked fights like Sha, Noureshen, Thok, etc.. but I started to lean towards the Siege trinket just because it has the constant Int with a spirit proc that goes nicely with other procs we have (weapon, divine plea, etc)

How do you feel about Purified Bindings of Immerseus?

 

I've recently rediscovered my paladin since our alt runs needed a healer. It's not fully heroic yet, but I've already hit a point where spirit has become somewhat unnecessary(sitting at about 12k) and is reforging away from it on every single piece that I've got.

 

Doing that I managed to get roundabout 18k mastery already before amplification. With one trinket that gives 9.17% amp, I end up with roughly 19.7k. Getting the secondary amp trinket would give an additional 1.8k mastery. It would also yield 1.1k spirit and some 500 haste.

 

The only alternative to PBoI would be TAGT, but I'm not a particular fan of low proc chances on trinkets. The proc from Thok also doesn't interact with a paladin's mastery from what I can tell, making it less interesting.

 

 

Any thoughts?

I don't think this would be optimal for a Selfless Healer build, since Spirit is pretty much worthless for that build. I've also been running Eternal Flame with 9500 lately and found it works surprisingly well, so my opinion of spirit is that you don't really need to consider it.

 

This means you're really only getting a 2k mastery buff, and from what I hear the PBoI proc doesn't work on our spells. That could be wrong though, since I'm seeing no confirmation of it working or not working, but it just isn't that strong of a stat gain.

A 2k mastery buff is 4.17% mastery and you're right that it isn't a lot. But the only alternative for throughput trinkets this tier is TAGT, and how powerful do you find it is on average? I don't have one myself, neither on my paladin nor on my priest so I sadly can't check the numbers myself :/..

I'd figure purified bindings to be a superior alternative to a starting heroic healer, over any normal trinket aside from PPP (I just noticed pride's and thok's trinket are triple lettered) but then again I'd only suggest using it primarily for a SH build (I'm just taking a guess here now)

And if you're progressing, needing PBI is going to make you wildly unpopular with all DPS casters. The 'low' chance on PBI seems to me to be quite accurate - haven't seen it drop much.

 

I was about to mention it originally, but omitted it due to this alone, but if PPP is strong, so is PBI, especially for the SH build.

      Overload is a progressive raiding guild on EU Darksorrow
      Raid Schedule
      Tuesdays/Thursdays: 19.30 - 22.30
      The guild is formed by ex-hardcore raiders who once strived to obtain realm firsts and top ranks. Since Legion we have gone from being a casual to progressive guild, the change was needed as we found it hard to balance being casual but trying to stick to a strict raiding format. We have now revamped and look at ourselves as a progressive guild with a strict system in place for raiders.
      Upon joining Overload players who are interested on staying on a social basis will be given membership rank. Players looking to apply for a raiding spot will undergo a 2 week trial period where their performance, attitude, readiness and playstyle will be evaluated using Warcraft Logs.
      Every player matters!
      It's about us as a community! We want everyone to be and feel a big part of the guild, no matter what level or guild rank. Our current officer team includes, Phailia (Guild Master & Recruitment) Calamity (Raid Leading/Event Organizer & Strategy) Aggravating (Theory-Crafting/Raider Evaluation & Strategy) and Wingria (Guild Management/Website/Loot Master & Logs). Officer meetings take place every Monday on discord at 20:00. Any idea's suggestions, concerns or issues can be brought up and discussed with an officer to be added to the agenda for these meetings.
      A life outside WoW
      We fully understand that players can’t play WoW 24/7
      (as much as some of us try!)
      The gaming experience should be a arranged arround your every day habbits and commitments. World of Warcraft should help provide relief to players from every day stress and worries; not adding to them. This is why our raid times are tailored to Tuesdays and Thursdays only. What we expect from our Raiders is to attend the raids 15 minutes prior to the time stated, informed, organised, and gear optimised for the encounter. If a player cannot make the raid they are expected to give plenty of notice on the AFK thread on the forum. 
      Interaction among members
      Overload is more than a place for raiding. We are a place to meet friendly players for a awesome hours of gaming. Being friendly and polite towards ALL players is very important to us and an essential part of being an Overloader. We want everyone to be comfortable and enjoy their game time; regardless if you are a raider or social member.
      Do you think you have what it takes to be part of Overload?
      Apply now and we look forward to welcoming you in Legion!
      [Current spots: Melee & Ranged DPS/ Priest or Shammy Healer]
