Tier 15 Prot Bonus

3 posts in this topic

Hi again! People were really helpful in my previous post so I figured I would throw in another question.

It's about the set bonus for the prot pally in tier 15 (+40% block on WoG), another pally from my guild said that bonus i as good as 12000 points of mastery, is that so?? seems like a lot... And would that mean I should move from SotR to WoG for mitigation and switch all my mastery points to a more useful stat? (like haste)

What I'm thinking, and this is just a theory from someone that doesn't have much of a clue, is that if I switch from SotR to WoG I would get bigger spikes since blocking chance is that, just a chance.

My guild just started TOT progression (yeah, I know we are late xP) and we had a hard time taking down horridon. Since I can clean myself between doors I get to tank the big guy the whole fight, and, as I see it, the block chance from the tier set bonus wouldn't be as useful as SotR to stop me from dying of a Triple Puncture. And I was thinking probably the same could be said about Tortos' snapping bite.

But I would like a word from more experienced players =) Thanks!

In short, the 2-piece is a nice bonus for when we have to WoG, but not worth using as a maintenance buff.

It has been clearly simulated at this point that Control/Haste is the best priority.

  • Stamina is still your best survivability stat, haste is a reasonably close second, mastery a distant third, dodge and parry tied for an even more distant fourth.
  • Capping hit (7.5%) and expertise (15%) are still your most important secondary stat goals (i.e. Control comes before Haste). It’s not clear from the data whether stamina is better or worse than hit and expertise – my guess is that stamina is better, but it should rarely come up in practice since you can’t reforge into stamina anyway.
  • Control/Haste should be the default gearing strategy for pretty much everyone nowadays, augmented by as much stamina as you need to feel comfortable in the encounter. Rule of thumb: if you keep going splat, pick up some more stamina.

Hi and thanks for the quick response. A few minutes after I posted this I realized I hadn't checked sacredduty for a while and did, and found that post about set bonus, I don't really understand all the numbers but I saw that same advice you quoted here but I did wanted to wait for a response since I was trying to understand what the other pally meant when he said the bonus was "as good as 12000 mastery", guess his numbers where just off...

      I have been trying to switch over to a holy pally to help my guild with progression. In under a week I have been able to get my ilvl up to 891. However, my guild is complaining that I don't have the numbers that the other healers do even though I explain to them I only have 2 aoe heals and one of them is on a 3 min cooldown since I use Aura of Sacrifice. I am using Holy Shock on cooldown, but I don't cast it if everyone is as full health, and since I am near the melee, I focus on the tanks and them, but I will still throw a Flash of Light, unless I get the proc from a Holy Shok crit, to ranged and other healers. I have started using Flash over the regular heal just to get them out faster, I have the legendary cloak so I will weave in Light of the Matyr after using a Light of Dawn since it can crit for over 1 mil, but I don't use it that often since I am using Aura of Sacrifice. I am getting tired of them telling me my numbers are low, but unlike some of the dps that tunnels bosses, I actually do mechanics, and I tend to not die as much as other dps and healers. I have been trying to get as much crit as I can for Holy Shock, but not sure if I should even go that route anymore. Any help on rotation would be much appreciated since I have abandoned my 900 warlock to help my guild with mythic progression, but again, they are only focused on numbers and since I only heal tanks and melee and not everyone all the time, my numbers are lower and they can't seem to understand that.
