Holy Priest - Multistrike or Crit

3 posts in this topic

Hello guys,

 

I cannot say I am new to WoW, but I am rookie for some stuff. I used to play as Druid healer but my guild have already 3 dudu healers. So, I have decided to go as Priest. Of course, I had many suggestions to go as Disc, but I do really prefer Holy. 

 

However, I have a problem and decision to make. In AskMrRobot there are two stats: crit and mulistrike. I am not sure which one to take. As Druid healer in MoP it was Spirit than Haste. U got Haste cap and that is all. Should I stick to Multistrike at some iLvl (until when?) or should I just go for Crit? Also, please help me with enchantment for weapon. 

 

I have read a decent number of forum topics, some opinions but still I am quite confused. smile.png

 

Here is link from my character:

Thanks a lot smile.png

AMR is completely in the wrong when it comes to their supposed crit build for holy. I mean just read the description for it:

 

 

Place a cap on Spirit at the level you are comfortable with. Not many people like Crit on a Holy Priest. Mr. Robot included this build because Crit is unfairly discriminated against by the theorycrafting community. On average, it is actually a good throughput stat. It could work.

 

Emphasis mine. Now, there are several concerns here, but what bothers me here is that none of the arguments they use for using crit as holy has anything to do with its effect on your healing. They say on average it's a good stat, that it could work. The reason they included it is because it's unfairly discriminated against by the theorycrafting community.

 

This is using their stat weights to further an agenda, not helping people out.

 

Crit is a decent throughput stat for holy, but for stat weights it's not enough to determine whether a stat is good or not, you need to figure out what stats are best, and subsequently in what order and by what magnitude these stats affect your throughput. For holy, that turns out to be roughly:

 

Multistrike>haste>>crit>=mastery>versatility.

 

That said, the stats are also somewhat close to each other. A piece with mastery/versatility on it that's 15 item levels higher will be an upgrade to a multistrike/crit or similar piece because of the added intellect.

 

Compare it to their MS>Haste build:

 

 

Place a cap on Spirit at the level you are comfortable with. Holy gains extra benefit from Multistrikes with their stat attunement, Divine Providence, making it a strong throughput stat. Getting a decent amount of Haste will also help with heavy movement and emergency healing.

The primary arguments here are actually reasonable. They relate to how the stats affect your throughput. You gain 20% more healing from multistrikes than you do critical strikes and you gain 5% more of the stat and haste increases the healing of your HoTs and the number of Circle of Healings you can cast. These effects make multistrike and haste significantly better than the other three that under normal circumstances can be considered roughly equal.

      Hello all.
      I decided yesterday to try to setup my resto spec on my shaman.  Normally, I tend to play dps specs but after an interesting encounter during an invasion yesterday, I decided to try my hand at the healing aspect of my shaman.
      Here is my current resto armory setup:  https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/kul-tiras/agneese
      I figured I should ask before I leap into this.  I currently have Elvui installed but wanted to see if Vuhdo would be a better substitution for the Elvui frames for healing.    I know I need to setup Weakauras, but have yet to do so.   Therefore, some basic questions I have are:
      1.  How to disable a conflict between Vuhdo and Eluvi frames?
      2.  If I use only Vuhdo frames and not Elvui frames, can that be set differently for dps specs too?
      3.  Since I move with my mouse, all my spells are on my G910 keyboard.  This keyboard has 9 extra "G" keys that I can put a simple macro on to use spells with or without modifyers.  I also am interested in how to setup perhaps two different skills that complement/synergize with each other on one key (even if I have to press said key twice).
      Any help would be appreciated.  Please keep in mind I am a total novice when it comes to healing so simplicity while I learn is appreciated.   Thanks in advance.  :)

      I have noticed something disturbing at my Garrison in Draenor since reaching level 110 in Legion....
      That is that the follower missions available at your Garrison are now having item level requirements to do, and there does not appear to be any way to increase your follower's item levels besides doing quests that have a high item level requirement. It is like Blizzard is saying, in order to get this, you have to complete that, but in order to attempt that, you have to already have this?? Is this a catch 22, or is it just me??
      So, my question is whether there is any other way to increase the item level of your followers in the garrison besides the quests?? PLEASE clarify, and THANKS in advance!!

      Just throwing this shower thought out there because why not.
      Would it be possible with reasonable amount of resources and time that you have available, to create couple of generic general gameplay/map guides for Heroes of the Storm? There are already a couple for other games, although mostly pretty old ones. Things like general guidelines for tanking, healing and stutter stepping as well as map guides of what heroes are which priority and how the maps play out? You already have some maps covered at the "map specific advice", but as the "new hero guide format" cuts the map specific advice part off, would adding such thing be possible. Not that I would be desperately in need of one, but if I had to guess, a lot of people would be glad to get them available.

      Some backstory - I started as a protection warrior so I could pull a load of mobs and AoE them into a puddle over time without being liquefied myself.
      I went like this from 1-100 without a hitch. Switched to Arms because of my fascination with Blademasters and Blackhand and I was promptly curb-stomped into oblivion.

      From what I've experienced, Arms has incredibly bursty unpredictable damage which can either annihilate a target or grant you no procs whatsoever making for long gaps in the fight during which you will do negligible damage.

      The only self-healing abilities you have are:
      Second Wind - Restores 6% of your maximum health ever 1 second after 5 seconds without taking damage.
      Victory Rush - Heals you for 30% of your maximum health, only useable after killing an enemy.
      Touch of Zakajz - 3%-6%-9% of mortal strike's damage is returned to you as health.

      If during a fight a monster starts out DPSing you, the fight is already over and you are graced with the choice of fleeing or dying because your defensive cooldowns aren't the best thing in the world.
      This becomes very evident when attempting to solo rares or even packs of mobs larger than three at 110.

      There are two builds for Arms circling the web.
      In short these are their gimmicks.
      ______________________________________________________
      Focused Rage
      Pros
      -Excellent burst damage
      -Great for sniping stragglers in PvP
      Cons
      -Very clunky use of Focused Rage
      -Only shines in Colossus Smash windows
      -Very Poor AoE, cooldown based
      ______________________________________________________
      Mortal Combo
      Pros
      -More rage to use without FR
      -Consistent damage
      -Some freedom with talents
      Cons
      -Stale rotation (You don't build towards something)
      -Sub-par AoE
      -Poor burst damage
      ______________________________________________________

      TL:DR
      I had an astonishingly hard time as an Arms warrior, even fighting two enemies at a time I would come very close to dying.
      My damage was GREAT but only during the windows provided by battle cry/avatar combo.
      My survivability sucked, my damage sucked, my AoE sucked, and I ended going back to Protection to progress.

      I REALLY want to like Arms, but it just falls on its face every time I try to use it.

      I call to you Arms warriors, you brave few - what is the trick to the specialization?
      What is the purpose / focus of the spec?
