I guess when Cat rolls around I'll be in t10 full gear. But I use moonkin t10 for healing in. This might be a problem, since when the change happens I'll have lots of hit (that wont convert to spirit) and won't be able to heal in it. Whereas if I start collecting t10 tree gear (with gobs of spirit) then that will be useful for moonkin gear. I guess my question may go like this: "will hit -> spirit for caster leather (and caster mail for our similarly affected elemental shaman brothers and sisters)?" If not, I'm kinda screwed huh? Comments encouraged BUT Please do not say "you shouldn't be healing in moonkin gear" cuz I heal icc10 quite well this way. Thas a conversation for another thread.

no need to bust on you, priests in my guild tell me the best in slot for healing priests is the t10 shadow piece. Regarding your gear specifically, I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that you will be replacing your t10 rapidly once you hit level 85. The toughest things to replace are usually things like weapons and trinkets, and assuming those are appropriate for a healer, you should be just fine.

"If not, I'm kinda screwed huh?"Uhm no, because you will be replacing all your fancy-schmancy ICC gear with iLvL 300 greens anyway shortly after Cata rolls around.Besides, if you're in ICC epics you will way overgear the levelling content of the level 80-84, just like anyone in BT/Sunwell epics was facerolling through Howling Fjord/Borean Tundra.So, stop worry, you're not screwed. More likely you will be complaining how easy levelling is :)

As they said (twice actually, if I recall), Balance will share gear with Resto. Thus if you're wearing Balance gear now, the Hit on it will be replaced by Spirit when 4.0 drops. The only people who will ever have to really worry about the changes are Cloth DPS using undoubtably healing gear and Plate DPS using leather/mail.

"If not, I'm kinda screwed huh? "Not if you just save some of your Triumph badge Resto gear. Or you could just roll on a few resto drops when you're raiding instead of sharding them. It's not that complicated.

Actually, now that I think about it, your current boomkin gear might be re-itemized when 4.0 comes out.It sounds like there really won't be any +hit Intellect (spellpower) leather or mail in game after the expansion. I bet your existing +hit gets re-itemized to spirit.
