My opinion on Holy 2 and 4pc

  • The 2pc is very situational.  It really depends on how often you make use of serendipity and how effectively you use it.  Don't get me wrong, it is a GREAT boost to healing, but you need to be good at using it.
  • The 4pc very strong, especially in a 25 man setting.  Being able to increase the healing of two spells that already are a staple part of your rotation just by using other staple spells? YES PLEASE.  It's going to be great in both AoE and single target fights.

Disc:

  • 2pc: 10% flat boost to crits when you pop wings? Sounds very good to me. Lets me put in a little bit more mastery into my gear.
  • 4pc: More passive stats when I pop cooldowns? Amazing.  Although, the mastery is pretty useless while spirit shell is up because (from what I remember) spirit shell isnt affected by mastery any more.  But the haste increase will definitely make up for the 5s nerf to spirit shell "application" duration.

Shadow: (NOTE: I am NOT a DPSer.  I'm making this opinion solely on what I know about the spec, which is not too much)

  • 2pc: This seems good, but it is my understanding that mastery is not a great stat for shadow.  Although, because of this 2pc, it may make shadow more inclined to get some mastery (maybe even even with crit after their haste breakpoint).
  • 4pc: Straight damage boost to major spells.  Most priests are going to want to make sure they use the bonus prioritizing in this order: SW:D > MB > MS.  It is probably a DPS gain to save the buff for a Mind blast, but not for SW:D. (in other words: don't use the buff on MS, but use the buff on which ever comes off CD first from SW:D and MB)

I'm relatively certain that never made it to live.

Opinions please - which 2 tier pieces are best for disc (25m) ?

 

Currently I own all 4 tier pieces (553 ilevel) but would like to equip as many heroic pieces I have as possible without losing the 2 set. 

 

Also have:

- heroic Iron Wolf Helm (Dark Shaman)

- heroic Rime-Rift Shoulders (Norushen)

- heroic Bolt-Burster Grips (Immersus) and heroic Earthripper gloves (Iron Juggernaut)

- warforged helm & shoulders & chest off Ordos

- I think I have the warforged (reg) Ichor-Dripping Shoudlers (Immersus)

 

I absolutely want to keep my 2 set but, what pieces would be the most beneficial, bearing in mind that tier pieces are still all only reg (553+upgraded) versions?

 

Thanks for any input smile.png

 

(PS - if I use the AskMrRobot 'best in bags' option it wants me to drop the 2 set in favor of equipping heroic pieces which I am really strongly against!  or am I wrong in that? I use AA a lot - like whenever it procs)

You should definitely think about posting your own thread for this kind of thing, instead of popping into another post.  It's always the better way to get a quality response.

 

That being said, you just have to look at the stats you want, and compare that to the stats you lose.  If I was going for a crit build, I'd run 2pc with:

 

Catia's Flowing Robes

Rime-Rift Shoulders

Bolt-Burster Grips

 

In this scenario, you'd gain a lot of Int/Crit, and lose around 2k Mastery.  Since Crit is your highest value stat when you're running a Crit build, you'll see the best gain there.

 

AMR "over-values" Spirit and Int when it's looking at Disc right now, and can't assign a real value to the 2pc proc since AA uptime is variable from player to player (20% AA uptime = 2% crit over the fight.  70% AA uptime = 7% crit over the fight.).  Make sure that you set a softcap of Spirit whenever you're looking at AMR!

Thanks for the input Hybrys - its actually exactly what I had figured would probably be the best setup when I logged out last night and looking at the stat priority was what I thought I should be doing. I guess it just bothers me a bit to have heroic pieces sitting in my bags not knowing if I'd be better off using them - so before I go spending valor on upgrades etc. I figure its best to get some second (and third!) opinions.

Something else to keep in mind before you upgrade is which heroic tier pieces you'll pick up and how accessible they are to your group.  You have heroic pcs from Shamans so you obviously will have the opportunity to pick up a heroic tier chest.  Next up will be gloves from Nazgrim.  So it will be efficient to spend your valor on the heroic pcs that will not get replaced sooner than the rest.  Then you'll be able to wear those two heroic tier pcs w/ three other heroic/HWF offpcs while you work on snagging additional heroic tier as you progress.

I have 4 pieces of the tier 16 set. I know that crit should equal mastery with 2 pieces. But what stats do I need with 4 pieces for raiding? I have a shadow priest.

      Hi all!
      New set item is better than the old one or the item's sinergy don't work well with the old set items? I know, my question is strange, but what is the common opinion? I know all the patch notes have info for set item changes, old ones have the new set stats, all set item is up-to-date in normal.
      But my Akkhan Crusader build is not working well. I have a new  Frydehr's Wrath & Blade of Prophecy . I have 1892paragon, have a good gear, good stats, right skills+passives, high leg.gems, cube is ok, caldesans etc. My dps is almost 4mill, but the solo 104 is my maximum (in a very good gr map).
      New ones is better like old ones? This is possible? Anyone in same feeling?
    • By OzzCat
      Good time, everyone. New set-bonus requires to do some rotation and now i mostly use binding heal + prayer of healing, but in case of running in Antorus - could surge of light from legendary be a good option? And maybe some other talent changes as well.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, PUBG, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      Been loosing to secret mages a lot lately. Anyway to counter them? The spells they have are annoying and they are able to kill of my big minions using fireball, polymorph etc. How do you counter them?

      I am glad I'm watching Chump because not only he's an inspiration but also because I was browsing through the standard priest deck lists provided here and even though it's a long list they are all pretty much the same (many of them no fun anymore, at least to me and def. no fun to play against) and I get the feeling lately Icy Veins tries to provide the most expensive decks only. No doubt they are effective and successful but as I said, getting bored and it's kind of bad for every new player visiting this page and just seeing (s)he has to play longer than some cards take to rotate out of standard to acquire a viable deck. 
      So, I was wondering why are the no decks like the following in this list, something wrong with adding such decks? Of course you can't add every possible deck type/variation but with a dozen Highlander and Dragon priest decks already being in this list there should be room for at least one or two others.
      All credit goes to Chump for this deck, I'm just posting it as well as his first video with it.
      Total Arcane Dust cost: 1600
      With all of the cards being basic, common or rare we can assume most players have most of the cards maybe a few to craft. Pretty cheap imo.
      2x Emerald Reaver 2x Northshire Cleric 2x Potion of Madness 2x Power Word: Shield 2x Voodoo Doctor 2x Golakka Crawler 2x Radiant Elemental 2x Shadow Ascendant 1x Deathspeaker 2x Happy Ghoul 2x Kabal Talonpriest 2x Auchenai Soulpriest 2x Keening Banshee 1x Darkscale Healer 2x Sunborne Val'kyr 2x Bonemare Deck Code: AAECAa0GAsYEmssCDoQB7QHlBPIMtbsC8LsC2MEC3cIC5MICyMsCzswCn84Cps4ClegCAA==
      He was playing 2 version of this deck with the other being a bit more expensive using Genzo, the Shark and Leeroy Jenkins instead of the 2 Auchenai Soulpriest.
      Have Fun :)
