Im a holy paladin and with the recent changes i was wondering what exactly i should be gemming for now that there isnt divine int anymore. Not only that but what stats are prioritized with the introduction of mastery and the now usage of spirit.
Try to get around 38k mana unbuffed. 1k Haste. From there gem spirit > mastery > crit.
Check for yourself if you're either:
-Casting too slow
-Running out of mana too fast
-Not getting enough throughput (this would be really wierd).
This is for ICC tho. Once cata ships, get all the plate gear you can, and pretty much follow the model blizzard has made, make gems match. All the rest is up to your playstyle.
I heavily prefer spirit because the WotLK environment is still heavy overheal, and your more efficient spells do not scale as effectively with spellpower as they used to.
If your regen is fine, you should reforge into mastery or haste (I prefer mastery) with spare crit or spirit on gear.
Gem +int primarily, there is no reason to use anything BUT plate with the new armor specialization.
You get so much out of Intellect now. Spell power, crit, maximum mana, regen (thru % of mana based stuff like DP and replenish) etc. etc.
Basically, for now, get spirit until your regen can handle constant casting of holy light and holy shock without dropping below 90%, with no external regen bonuses, then go for Intellect.
Haste and mastery are the other two stats you should consider once you get a good feel for how the class is working now.
My armory is not currently following this advice.
Also, this advice is basic gearing for someone getting used to everything, not the "ideal raid" weighted stat points and all that.
