[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.

      Autumn Mist is a group of raiders looking to experience the most challenging aspects of wow. We aim to create a fair and motivating environment for progress.

        Joining Autumn Mist
      During your trial period we will be looking at your mastery over your class, your attendance and attitude during raids. Your awareness of boss fights and mechanics, along with your ability to adapt and learn. How you handle success along with failure. Progress is important to us but the atmosphere of the raids must be maintained a good personality and a sense of humor is a must.

      Recruitment is currently open to all classes we are looking to optimize every aspect of our raid team, if you are a driven and dedicated player there is a spot for you in our Mythic raids.

      We are also recruiting people looking to make the big jump from Heroic to Mythic raiding, we understand this transition isn't easy and can be overwhelming. Our experience has shown us stones can be polished into gems and we will help you on that journey.

      [H] Salvation (est.2007) is a progression raiding guild on US-Cenarion Circle/Sisters of Elune.
      Objective
      Salvation is actively searching and recruiting players for current heroic content. What we look to do in the short-term is recruit players and gear them in our farm content. Mythic + will be run as well since it serves as another outlet to gearing up. By doing this we prepare them for our long-term goal, Mythic Mode Progression.
      Recruiting for Antorus
      Tanks- Blood Death Knight x1 (be willing to dps as well depending on raid comp) Melee- Rogue x1, Death Knight x1, Ret/Holy Paladin x1 Ranged- Mages x1, Hunter x2, Warlock x1, Balance Druid x1 Healers- Resto/Ele Shaman x1, Holy/Disc Priest x1

      ***Exceptional applicants can feel free to sign up even if we aren't recruiting your class/spec. Outstanding applications will always be considered.
      We are also accepting players that engage in social aspects of the WoW community such as leveling, PvP, questing, dungeon finding, roleplaying and other challenging activites. We provide monthly guild events. For example, the Tournament of Tiny Champions. It’s a pet battle tournament where guildies compete with each other using 3-6 of their mightiest level 25 tiny champions. We are expanding this extremely fun side of Salvation so that everyone can join in on some action and prizes!
      Raiding Schedule
      Our schedule is as follows. We push content three times a week for 3 hours at a time starting at 6:00pm to 9:00pm PST Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Mondays. 
      Our Raiding Requirements
      You must be able to raid all three nights. Be on time for raid. Lateness will not be tolerated. Be able to play the optimal specialization for Legion raid encounters. (this requirement is more towards the pure dps classes and hybrid classes in some special cases) Come prepared with the knowledge of the Legion raid bosses and mechanics. Have Discord app installed and a working microphone to communicate. Discord browser and phone app is also acceptable. (Note: Some of these requirements will change as time goes on.)

      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.

      Associated with the <Validus Knights> of Feathermoon (a guild almost as old as World of Warcraft), we are an independent raid being built from the ground up. The creators and leaders of this raid are two players who have been raiding in WoW since the early days of the Burning Crusade. We are a friendly and fun group of people who seek to develop a solid raid team that will progress through Antorus, The Burning Throne and well into the next expansion pack. We are currently seeking 1 experienced tank, at least 2 healers, and both melee and ranged dps.
      THIS IS AN EAST COAST RAID. We will be running our raid on TUESDAY and FRIDAY nights at 6PM to 9PM Eastern time (That is 3PM to 6PM for Feathermoon's server time)
      Important notes:
      We will be focusing on Heroic Tomb of Sargeras to start with. Those who are already members of the raid are experienced with all encounters. This is not a guild raid, but we have abundant resources. Joining a guild will not be required (however, it is an option if you are interested). There are performance expectations for all roles, but these will not be unreasonable. Knowledge of your class is expected. Preparation for boss encounters is expected. Item level is not as important to us as performance and the ability to work effectively within a team environment. We are willing to support you if you are willing to apply equal effort. If you are interested in joining our team, please post here. If you are on the Feathermoon/Scarlet Crusade server, you may contact Keyblade or Bubskii directly in-game.
      Thank you very much.

      Good day people of the forums!
      Heavy Metal Gaming (Kel'thuzad) is a 2 day, casual raid guild looking to recruit a few more as we are coming to an end to ToS, and looking ahead to the next tier. Due to RL things, we have lost a couple of our key raiders and are in need of replacing/adding to our roster.
       
      Although we are casual, the roster is made up of exceptional players, and we are looking for like-minded/skilled players that are vocal in discord, and engage with the rest of the guild.
       
      The guild and group is made up of friends that have been gaming together for 10+ years. Many of us previously raiding in Top 50 guilds during TBC, WoTLK, and Cata.
      For Legion we are AOTC for all raid content and will continue to be.
      We are looking for:
       
      DPS
      Ranged:
      Hunter
      Warlock
      Mage
      Shadow Priest
      Ele Shaman
       
      Raid Times
      Tuesday & Wednesday 7-10PM Mountain time
