Question on Tier synergy bonuses

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have a question that I can't seem to find the answer to, and I am hoping you guys can help me. I just discovered this site and i must say it have been very informative to me so far.

Due to my work schedule I can very rarely make my guild raids so most every week its off to the LFR.

I have the 4 piece T13 LFR set. My question is: is the bonus provided adequate enough to not buy the i397 valor point gear? what about a mix of the valor point gear and the 2 piece bonus? should I not even worry about the bonus and just try to get the BiS items that I can?

I know it may seem silly to some since it is the LFR and not all that difficult, but on those rare occasions when I do get to go with my guild I just want to make sure I have the best gear overall that I can.

Thanks in advance for any advice and help you can give me!

I am going to guess, based on the tags of the thread, that you are a Holy Paladin. I'll base my answer off that. If I'm wrong, feel free to specify your class.

The set bonuses from the tier set, especially the 4-part tier set bonus (+20% healing to Holy Radiance) are very good. Also, 3 of the tier items (shoulder, chest and hands) are ideally itemised for a Holy Paladin (spirit and haste), whereas the Valor gear is not (it has Crit or Mastery).

So, I think you will get the best set-up by using the following items:

Head: Glowing Wings of Hope (Valor points). Critical Strike Rating is better than Mastery Rating (which is what the tier head has).

Shoulder: Tier LFR

Chest: Tier LFR

Hands: Tier LFR

Legs: Tier LFR (no Valor equivalent).

If you want more specific advice or tips or anything, feel free to ask (and provide an armory link, too!)

P.S.: There's nothing wrong with wanting to perform well, no matter what the level you are raiding at is.

If you are unsure about gear but you don't have much time to research everything, trawl through class specific websites or elitist jerks it can be worth using a website that does it for you. Mr robot is pretty good (www.askmrrobot.com). It isn't perfect and there are better ways to deal with gear; but as a general guide it is pretty good. If you use 'relative rankings' rather than BiS it will tell you if something is an upgrade based on your currently equiped gear which is also pretty useful. Takes thinks like 2/4 piece bonuses into account. Make sure you log off in your pve gear though as it updates directly from armoury.

I would just like to add that the 4-set bonus got nerfed to +5% healing to Holy Radiance. This is a lot less good than it used to be, but I still think it's worth getting since holy radiance is used a lot in Dragon soul, especially in a 25-man raid.

Oh, so it has. That's weird, http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/item/78692 still mentions it as 20%. You'd think it would be reliable.

In my guild the paladin healers decided to give the tier tokens to all the other classes first, since the upgrade for them is quite small and other classes(priests, warlocks and retribution paladins) getting their 4-set bonus first would benefit the raid more. But I still think the 4-set LFR is better than the valor point items. The items given by Vlad are probably your best guess.

      <Fun is for Casuals> is a serious but casual horde guild on US-Hyjal. We are serious about raiding without the intense hours. Even when recruitment status is none, we will accept exceptional applications for all classes. For a full list of what we're looking for check out https://funisforcasuals.enjin.com . 
      Our raid times are Tuesday and Thursday from 5:00PM to 8:00PM server (PST) with raid invitations sent out a few minutes prior to that.

      We're interested in you if you fit the following criteria:
      Raid attendance is essential. We don't want people sitting on the bench but we also want to make sure we're raiding 6 hours per week. We expect you to be available for at least 90% of our raids. Be on time and prepared for raids. This includes flasks and other consumables. Discord is mandatory and a working mic is desired. You're appropriately geared for our current content. Effort and thought have been put into your gear/gem/enchant choices. You wouldn't show up for a job interview looking like a scrub, why would you apply to a guild with improper gems or some insane spec? You're up to date with your class. We expect our raiders to perform to the best of their abilities. You have a computer that's not run with hamster power or requires a hand crank. Some encounters are taxing on a computer's resources so if your toon can't even handle Orgrimmar it's not likely to do well with 20+ whelps that need AOE'ing.
      You may be interested in us because:
      <Fun is for Casuals> uses the personal loot system. There is no loot council, or DKP. We won't eat your babies the first time you stand in something you have no business being in. Repeatedly do it and we'll break out the bibs and BBQ sauce. We provide a limited amount of consumables and flasks on hard mode raid nights. Discord isn't a circus during raids. We're focused on the job at hand and you should be too. We don't want someone to miss a an interrupt because they were distracted by fart jokes. We are not interested in you if you fit the following criteria:
      You roll on BoE items then sell them. Unwilling/unable to spend an entire evening on one boss during progression. While this is rare, it can happen. Drama queens. If you have a problem bring it up to E. This is his job. Don't announce it in guild chat or during a raid. Your issue will have nothing to do with 99% of the guild. You are 17 or younger. We try to keep guild and discord chat PG-13 but occasionally a few four letter words appear out of nowhere. Additionally, we don't want someone's mom interrupting their raiding to get homework or the dishes done. Follow the instructions at https://funisforcasuals.enjin.com/ under the Recruitment tab if you would like to apply.
      If you have any question, feel free to contact E. at DbD#1309

      Hey all,
       
      Not new to hearthstone but haven't been playing constantly and just jumping back in towards the end of July.  I am not sure if there's a better name or configuration for this yet but I've had some good luck with it so far.  If nothing else it's just really fun to play for me.  
      This deck has no duplicates to take advantage of Zephyrs the Great and Sir. Finley of the Sand.
       
      Never posted a deck before so not sure if this is how of the place but feel free to give me constructive feedback.
