[Holy] Help with trinket decision

Hi there

 

I am a Holy Paladin w/ 9/14 HC SoO and doing quite good for myself. However I recently got into reevaluating my trinkets.

 

I am currently running Prismatic Prison of Pride as a staple while alternating between Thok's and Siegecrafter's depending on what the encounter needs - cleave or more regen.

 

Yesterday I looked in my bags and saw a neglected Heroic Nazgrim's trinket and I thought: "Which is downright better?"

 

AMR says Thok's but I wanted to hear what other Paladins think and run with.

I like Siegecrafter's simply because it provides its benefits across all encounters and all types of healing roles.

 

For the same reason I dislike the RNG trinkets, since healing (and tanking for that matter) is a lot more about controlling your output as opposed to DPS, who can usually better react to procs (snapshotting ftw).

 

So I would run with Siegecrafter's and Prismatic Prison, since these two have strong permanent utility, and Siegecrafter's has a proc which should always be useful.

 

Just my two cents ... interesting discussion.

Yup, I'm a fan of on-use and non-rng trinkets. I use Prismatic and the Siege trinkets. There was a point in time I used thok's trinket on some of the stacked fights like Sha, Noureshen, Thok, etc.. but I started to lean towards the Siege trinket just because it has the constant Int with a spirit proc that goes nicely with other procs we have (weapon, divine plea, etc)

How do you feel about Purified Bindings of Immerseus?

 

I've recently rediscovered my paladin since our alt runs needed a healer. It's not fully heroic yet, but I've already hit a point where spirit has become somewhat unnecessary(sitting at about 12k) and is reforging away from it on every single piece that I've got.

 

Doing that I managed to get roundabout 18k mastery already before amplification. With one trinket that gives 9.17% amp, I end up with roughly 19.7k. Getting the secondary amp trinket would give an additional 1.8k mastery. It would also yield 1.1k spirit and some 500 haste.

 

The only alternative to PBoI would be TAGT, but I'm not a particular fan of low proc chances on trinkets. The proc from Thok also doesn't interact with a paladin's mastery from what I can tell, making it less interesting.

 

 

Any thoughts?

I don't think this would be optimal for a Selfless Healer build, since Spirit is pretty much worthless for that build. I've also been running Eternal Flame with 9500 lately and found it works surprisingly well, so my opinion of spirit is that you don't really need to consider it.

 

This means you're really only getting a 2k mastery buff, and from what I hear the PBoI proc doesn't work on our spells. That could be wrong though, since I'm seeing no confirmation of it working or not working, but it just isn't that strong of a stat gain.

A 2k mastery buff is 4.17% mastery and you're right that it isn't a lot. But the only alternative for throughput trinkets this tier is TAGT, and how powerful do you find it is on average? I don't have one myself, neither on my paladin nor on my priest so I sadly can't check the numbers myself :/..

I'd figure purified bindings to be a superior alternative to a starting heroic healer, over any normal trinket aside from PPP (I just noticed pride's and thok's trinket are triple lettered) but then again I'd only suggest using it primarily for a SH build (I'm just taking a guess here now)

And if you're progressing, needing PBI is going to make you wildly unpopular with all DPS casters. The 'low' chance on PBI seems to me to be quite accurate - haven't seen it drop much.

 

I was about to mention it originally, but omitted it due to this alone, but if PPP is strong, so is PBI, especially for the SH build.

      Tank Healer DPS ABOUT US
      Currently looking for skilled and laid back raiders for Heroic and eventually Mythic Uldir.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out.
      Players wanting just Mythic+ and a casual experience (no raiding) are welcomed!
      Fun guild events are scheduled every Saturday!
      TLDR; we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BfA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW
      - Mythic+ or Casual: Add me on Battle.net or whisper me in-game for an invite.
      - Raiders: Add me on Battle.net and fill out our app.

      Hi all,
      We're a newly formed (Alliance) Raiding Guild/Community and we're in need of you!
      With newly formed I mean really newly formed, we have created this Guild this week!
      We started this guild with a team of Raiders who all wanted to do more than our previous guild was able to offer.
      We are currently 12 ppl who want to have a nice time progression on Heroic and Mythic raiding.
      The aim is to raid 2 or 3 days a week.
      (Below is the info for the guild, if you're not willing to raid standard days and/or join a guild, you're more then welcome to join our community! Do note that once the guild is up to speed, the Guild members will always have priority over Community members for a spot in the raid team.)
      <Have a Beautiful Time> Is recruiting Community raiders and Guild members for their brand-new Raiding Guild and/or Community. 
      Current setup (which we're looking to expand): 2/3/7
      Current kills (Uldir): 8/8 Normal, 5/8 Heroic, 0/8 Mythic.
      Our raid days: Wednesday and (2nd (+maybe 3rd) day to be decided)
      Raid gear requirements: ilvl 355+
      Guild server: Thunderhorn/Wildhammer
      RL age minimum: 18+ (Sorry but we do not want to have to mind our words on Discord)
      Next to raiding we are always gear oriented, which shows in the fact that we run higher Mythic+ dungeons together on the off raid days.
      Next to the fact that we have some PvP teams going.
      Having the ability to join discord is obligated, this is a hard obligation and can not be skipped.
      You're not obligated to talk, but you need to be able to listen during the raids to our raidleader(s)
      We are very serious about raiding and higher Mythic+ dungeons, but on the off time, we are not a serious bunch of ppl.
      If you like serious gameplay and around it some nice social times on discord with your guildies, this is the place to be for you! 
      (I have to warn you though, as we're all some kind of crazy ^^)
      We are hoping to welcome you in our team soon!

      Hi everyone,

      We are a guild that transferred from Alexstrasza to join the progression raiding scene as that server is very low population now. We are currently 8/8N and 4/8H uldir, and looking to move into heroics soon and mythic just after. 

      We do more than just raid, we love to do keys, transmog runs, and even some PvP. We have a large range of players from several walks of life and have a unique and fun atmosphere, we are friendly and love helping people. 

      We are looking for a few more members for our Sunday/Monday 5-8pm PST, and our tue/third 5-8pm PST. If anyone is interested in raid leading that will work too.

      We are primarily east coast based but have a plethora of players that are on at all times of day.

      Main needs for our raid team:
      ranged dps
      Healers
      Exceptional players

      Of course all players as welcome as we do other guild activities such as world PVP, keys, xmog and other social activities.

      So come join this very active guild and we hope to hear from you.

      If you would like more information please add my btag at Kaatra#5865.

      I look forward to hearing from all of you.
