Oh, I totally agree the Scyer proc is BS, and would be buying up Aldor rep items left and right. And yes, in its current effect, the Scyer neck proc should be considered "buggy" -- sapping and eating shouldn't make lightning shoot out of you.As to the "choosing for proc" argument, I use it to evaluate gear, in balance with everything. Even the most basic stats are still best viewed in light of balance. Take tanks. Is Stamina awesome? YES! But if you build a set of gear with nothing but Stamina bonuses, you'll have a tank with 18k HP, but total avoidance in the low double digits.The SSO necklace is nice, but if you don't like the proc, choose one of the many other necklaces that fit your character better.

"eating shouldn't make lightning shoot out of you"Unless you're eating Stormchops! http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=43758Seriously though, let's look at all this logically. They'll fix the necklace proc bugs. What we should really be looking at is whether or not the buffs from these necklaces are equal in DPS/HPS/TPS.It makes sense that the procs would be better for certain classes/specs than others. And the fact that the Scryer arcane bolts will be resisted by arcane-resistant mobs should also factor in somehow.On the other hand, Scryer bolts can crit. I've heard that they're affected by your character's spell crit. So, do they proc your on-crit abilities? I can see how being an Elemental shaman with a Scryer neck on (which I will be someday) could be potentially very good. It could be like having more Lightning Overloads.
