Part 1 : Disc Priest confusion with actual performance and what "the guide" says
After looking over the class specific forums and now in the healing forum itself I have yet to find accurate information regarding the spirit "cap" and whether or not I have too much on my two different toons...
For starters, my Disc priest has 3125 spirit, and whenever I recieved a piece of gear that did not have mastery, I forged to it as per the guides said (or as I read them I saw mastery > haste > crit)
By random curiousity I armory'd one of my 10 man raids' healers profile (One of whom I used as an inspiration to make this class in the first place) and I now noticed that "they" are forging off SPIRIT in favor of MASTERY and leaving whatever CRIT and HASTE that is on the gear alone.
The performance in the meters shows that this is working for them, but I am hesitant to change in light of what all the forum posts say...
At the moment I dont find myself going OOM at all except during Zon'ozz with a cruddy group, when I was doing 19k healing with the others doing 18k and 14k, and I handle Ultraxion 2 healing with no problems at all.
My current stats are
Mastery 15.85 (1408 rating)
Spell Power 10634
Mana Regen 5790
Haste 7.47% (956 rating)
Crit 16.21% (463 rating)
1. Do I have way more spirit than (the cap) required for PvE ?
