@ MusedMoose I have two sets of gear for holy at the moment. Granted, out of those two sets, there are maybe 3-4 pieces that are different when compared to each other. The one fight that I change the sets for is Dreamwalker. Now with a 30% buff - it doesn't really matter what your thoroughput is - even on heroic...but before the buff - changing even 3 items was huge. I trade out gear for more haste (I have enough haste to make everything on GCD). This allowed me to get the maximum possible of heals off before I had to re-enter the dream. But anywho, I don't think it's theorycrafting "gone wrong"...I think it's all about min/maxing your character for specific fights to benefit a group of people. While being slightly inconvenient for you, it will allow you to progress further and faster and you'll be getting gear anyway, so what is there to complain about? @ the author --You mention that lower tier may be better, and you are now enjoying some of the benefits of 277 gear. While I do not have a lot of 277 gear, I do have all 264. I found it kinda weird to hold onto any gear that was lesser than that. I've always been a crit build (OMGs he doesn't have raid wallz!) - and I found that my output and effectiveness were greater while making haste/crit priority over mp5. I literally never run out of mana unless I foolishly miss the timing on a cooldown (4 piece bonus, wings, pot, LoH yourself, Divine Plea, etc). Mp5 on live is a ridiculously useless stat in my honest opinion. Maxing out intellect, haste, and crit (my mana pool is 47k in raid) is the best imo. Finally, I use the 264 libram. In most fights. Why do you ask? Because it's guarenteed to be up at all times. In our 25 man raid setup, the tank dying because I'm not healing him with HL spam is highly unlikely since there are two other holy pallies also healing them as well as 2 other healers (shammies or druids). A nice shock here and there with a 30% buff is ~15k for me now (with all that crit) so it basically acts just like a miniature holy light without a buff...except it's instant....
