So, gearing up this alt. I have the choice of either Tears of the Vanquished or Je'tze's bell.
Which should I use?
I noticed my Purified Lunar Dust and Je'tze's Bell procs can stack.

Tears of the Vanquished
+84 Intellect
Equip: Each time you cast a helpful spell, you have a chance to gain 500 mana.

Je'Tze's Bell
+91 Intellect
Equip: Each time you cast a spell, there is a chance you will gain up to 250 Spirit for 15 sec.

Purified Lunar Dust
+153 Intellect
Equip: Your spell casts have a chance to grant 608 Spirit for 15 sec.

I'd try for the Ephemeral Snowflake. Barring that, you can get the Nevermelting Ice Crystal. Or you can go for Darkmoon Card: Greatness - Spirit or Intel version, whatever your pleasure.

Auction the Bell. As its so close to the expansion, the extra padding in your bank will be pleasant.

Lets use a bit of math to see exactly the difference between the two procs.

Tears of the Vanquished
+84 Intellect
Equip: Each time you cast a helpful spell, you have a chance to gain 500 mana.

Je'Tze's Bell
+91 Intellect
Equip: Each time you cast a spell, there is a chance you will gain up to 250 Spirit for 15 sec.

I'm going to convert them into mp5 for 1:1 comparison.
Tears has a 45 second ICD so at best it is 500mp45 or about 55mp5

The bell also has a 45 second ICD and we can make the spirit proc simpler by converting it first to spirit per 5 seconds. 750 spirit for 5 seconds every 45 seconds. This comes out to an average of 73 spirit.

In the end since you only get 50% of your mp5 from spirit in combat, it makes the proc (with your gear) worth about 29mp5 in combat

Spirit > mp5 conversion formula is as follows: .016725*(Spirit)*SQRT(Int)
Divide by 2 if it is in combat.

conclusion:
go with the tears.
