@thebvp: Except that comparison is so freaking offbase as to be hysterically funny, particularly for someone who calls hirself a Priest. Not only is Cloth THE ONLY THING WE CAN WEAR, there is far, far more homogenization currently in cloth gear than probably any other type of gear barring dps leather. Blizzard guaranteed that when they folded +healing and +spell damage into +spellpower way back in 3.0.As it stands the only real demarcation between DPS and healer cloth is the presence of MP5 or Hit on an item. "Spirit" used to be mostly a healer thing too, but I don't want spirit on my Disc alt, it does fuck all for me compared to say, int or crit or haste. OTOH, I do get some benefit from spirit on my main via Molten Armor, and even more benefit on my deep Demo lock via Fel Armor. That's two DPS classes that get a superior boost from a previous "healer" stat than an actual healer spec. The logical conclusion of all this is things like Disc priests wearing Shadow T10 because it's itemized better for their stat needs (and there's the dubious value of the T10 healer bonus, but this is a mage column). And Blizzard has encouraged the current tangled mess of cloth homogenization by trying to shove Spirit down everyone's throat the minute we stepped off the zeppelin in Northrend.When Blizzard starts giving Warriors incentives via talents and skills to wear mail and leather items, then you'll have a valid comparison. Until then, you just sound ridiculous.
