I was thinking as I changed into my Pvp set – at how many pieces I still had on that were PVE It was only my weapon, offhand and wand because I don’t have an arena rating to get them, but then I did some more fiddling because I was told that anymore then 1k resil is not really useful in arena. (1.3 resil with a resil flask in a bg) , so I swapped back in a trinket for an extra 111 sp ( that never melting icecrystal Boo yeah!)
My healing set on my Shadow Priest is similar. I use some of my dps gear as my healing gear out of necessity – which is fine for the content I am healing now. 5 mans – the first 6 bosses in ICC – It’s a gimped out set of mixed pieces of Dps, TOC, ICC, and badge tier 9 – It’s not really a complete set. It does the job – but it could be better. I always feel a little guily healing. I have done the best I can with my gear, on, and offspec – but I am not really a healer. So my priorities on gear for offspec will aways be lower – and I am not going to put in as much effort and thought. I think I am doing ok though.
The Wow.com just announced via Facebook that ICC Raid Buffs are now live. Yeah for %5 more damage and healing. That there is going to get us Rot tonite. ( well at least help.. ) and I hope we use it – because apparently there is an option to tell the buffage dude to go away. So if I end up healing or dps. 5% is 5% . Looking forward to see the difference.
With this offspec business though, there has been so many stat changes, of recent, that the pieces and stats that have been interchangeable but with the new stat changes being introduced – and stuff like spirit being more for healers – the gear may not be as flexible. I think I might need to build a true offset ( when it happens)
