Again, needs more QQing about Restoration Itemization. You imply that crit and mp5 on SP gear is better for Restoration than Elemental, but we actually want Haste even more than you do, DPSer.Looking at the 245 BiS list: http://elitistjerks.com/f47/t24796-shaman_restoration/#Best_in_Slot_Level_245_and_BelowElemental Helm, Shoulders.Three of the better cloaks with hit and spirit, just because they have tons of haste.The T9.5 resto gloves are outranked by three cloth gloves, one of which has hit.The BiS belt has hit.And what's perhaps the most annoying ranking, Band of the Invoker is far better than Heartmender Circle, despite the fact that BotI is clearly for clothies and trees, and HC is for us, and Paladins. FAIL.

You're right, haste being so ridiculously good for resto now has given us some very messed up gear choices.

"You're right, haste being so ridiculously good for resto now has given us some very messed up gear choices."I can attest to this - I use Abyssal Rune in my Resto set, since its haste is far superior to my higher ilvl trinket that has spellpower and an actual healing proc.

I mean, the bigger issue is that mana regeneration doesn't matter right now, so we can just stack thoroughput stats. Icecrown is looking healing-intensive, so we might actually pay attention to mp5. But I somehow doubt that will be the case for people in 245-258 gear.

I promise you, the restoration complainathon is coming.

Mister Sir have you looked at the gear list for 3.3 A lot of the mp5 crap they want elemental wearing is fairly well stocked with haste making resto itemization in my view much less of a QQ worthy topic than how borked and broken Elemental is. Oh well maybe as soon as I rack up the requisite amount of DKP required to switch mains I will be weighing in on the Lichborne collumn and not reading totem talk anymore...
