Completely agree with the above, except for one note. When it comes to gemming, to fill the meta requirement for the Insightful Earthseige Diamond, you should gem a Nightmare Tear into a blue socket, rather than a purple or green gem. +10 to stats is never wasted.Second thought, I'd been playing around with the Emblem of Frost Elemental totem rather than the Restoration totem (Bizuri's Totem of Shattered Ice: The periodic damage from your Flame Shock grants 44 haste rating for 30 secs. Stacks up to 5 times.) I've found the additional 220 haste to be more useful than the added SP from the restoration one, and firing off one Flame Shock every 30-40 seconds is not a problem on boss fights. Thoughts?

Well, in theory that sounds good, but you also have to factor in the miss chance you'll have with spells...healers are not going to be hit capped (unless they happen to be using elemental gear while gearing up their healing set) so those flame shocks won't always miss, and spending more global coooldowns to recast after a miss (or more than one miss in a row) is going to mean you're not using mana/GCDs on healing...if you can spare all those GCDs to heal, I'd think that the haste increase you get from the totem wouldn't really matter, as it would seem like your raid outgears the instance.I could be wrong though, just my thoughts on that.

I do not agree on the Nightmare Tear, this will result in 10 sta and 10 int as your usefull stats. As you are not going oom as resto shaman, there is barely any need for the extra int (some mana regen and crit). If you are a pure haste stacker, the haste/mp5 gem will be more beneficial. If you feel the need for the 10 stamina, you are probably better off gemming 10sp/15 sta.On yoru second thoughts, don't do it. If you are at the bleeding edge progress, you do not want to check an buff which forces you to be in 25 yard range from the boss and has a 13-17% chance to miss (depending on the buffs in your raid). At the moment you need the haste buff the most, you are most likely to let it run out as you are too focused on health bars and at those times you probably don't have the gcd to spare to refresh it.Stick with the resto relic, that uptime is a lot higher as you want to riptide a lot for the t10 2 set.

The 10 haste/15sta ofcourse, not 10sp/15sta. We don't stack sp!
