Holy Priest - Multistrike or Crit

Recommended Posts

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:




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 everyone,
      I want to ask for any tips on my logs, since I think I'm doing something wrong with my resto druid.
      I have good gear (currently 958 ilvl) but I see other druids with similar or less gear do way higher HPS than me on the logs. I think I should be doing more than 900/1k hps, but rarely go above 700 in many fights.
      Here are a couple of logs of Antorus hc:
      I searched the logs and I think one of my main problems for the lack of healing is the rejuvenations. Other druids do far more healing with same or less rejuvs, since my average casts is around 450k (and other druids go up to 750 or even 1000).
      I don't know if it's a problem with timing or overhealing (other healers snipping me), but I want to know other opinions.
      Thanks a lot for your help.

      Hi guys! 
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/chamber-of-aspects/erthol   So this is my mistweaver monk here. Now I have actually managed to start raiding and do normals every week. However I have a huuuuge problem, specifically that my hps is really, really low. A good example I think would be this Aggramar fight: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/jKcxbLXrQ9pknDva#fight=27&type=healing   You can see how the other monk had much higher hps than me. I do understand my leggos are subpar, but meh, bad luck one could say. What I don't understand is what I'm doing wrong. I try to use renewing mist on cd, use Vivify. I know I haven't used Effuse too much, but that's because I was trying out fistweawing. Anyways, all my other logs are basically the same. I have way too high overhealing as well. Any help would be great, because I'm lost, I love the monk, I love the style, but somehow can't get it to work as I would like it to. Please help meeeeee! Thanks for the feedback.

      What stat %s should we aim for?

      Hi guys,

      I need some pro help to learn to heal properly with my druid.
      I started to play 3 months ago and I've tried to follow build, tips, place proper hots but I always get a very low efficiency index in raid logs with my guild (and with other people).
      My ilvl is currently 906, I have two legendaries, and my artifact is at max level. I do have two other legendaries in my bags: Prydaz and Xoni's. Below are my current stats:
      Here are a couple of logs of this week raids:
      ToS nm (only 5 bosses): https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/DWz34VPQ9aHtXp6C
      Another ToS nm (except KJ): https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/dXFnKbqAk43cahxr
      I think my HPS are rather lacking in comparison to other healers, even though I am not that far away gear-wise. It's so frustrating to see 11-20% of efficiency :(
      I'd appreciate any constructive opinion you have and thanks in advance.
