Crit for holy?

Crit for holy is dependent on having an Amp trinket.

Sup team, I've been rocking some crit gems and testing it out, mostly because I'm healing alongside a druid. Seeing some up and down results, but I'm also seeing echo of light work pretty much just as well as it did with high mastery, you know, because a crit heal = higher eol, etc. Am I barking up the wrong tree with this or what? I'll see if I can pull some logs if need be, but just take it at face value.


Are you raiding 10 mans or 25 mans?

I don't think you could ever convince me to gimp my highest-healing spell (top 3 consistently every fight) for a crit 30% of the time. That's even assuming I could get that amount of Crit in the gear I have without dumping Int.

10m. I wouldn't consider loing mastery in 25. It's not worth it.

Okay. Well, that actually makes a lot more sense. Mastery is way less important in 10 mans if you're running the Renew-heavy Serenity build. So Crit and Haste would likely be your go-to stats. I believe Paragon's Priest was using that build. Might take a gander at his armory if you get a chance.

That build is awesome if you've got strong healers backing it up, I just don't understand it personally. I can go full crit and renew isn't all that amazing, you know?

Well, he is going heavy, HEAVY Haste, for starters. I think it was like..10 or 12k? Something like that?

But after that, what other secondary is going to give you the most "oomph" if you're relying primarily on Renew (and using Cascade to help keep it up)? Mastery doesn't affect your primary heal, so Crit is logically your next choice, since Renew CAN Crit.

My personal feeling on the subject is that secondary stats are very fluid for Priests, even now. What's best to use is determined by a combination of your raid size, your personal play style, and the playstyle of your other healers. You can make very broad and general statements, but in practice those statements may not work for every player. So my own advice to you would be to keep playing with your stats and try to get somewhere you feel comfortable.

Totally on board, I just don't see crit stacking enough in this patch/xpac to the point where it can be a viable build. I'm all for pushing out of everything and dumping into mastery, or haste, or whatever's called for with raid comp. I just don't know that there's enough crit to cut it.

I need to double-check the loot table, but I think there's a Spirit + Crit piece for nearly every slot in SoO. Just a matter of getting them to drop.

He was reaching the 13k haste breakpoint. So yeah, that's a lot of haste.

There's a thread around here somewhere of players with the same issue. My guild went 17 weeks without seeing a single HLG drop. Not one! So I feel your pain. :-\
