"To make you look at other gearing options, we've decided to remove other gearing options."

This seems to be a chronic problem with Blizzard. "Stat X is excellent for you in a way we didn't anticipate? Well, shit! Instead of looking at why this imbalance occurred and correcting it, weeeeeeeeee'llllllll juuuuuuuuuust remove your option to use it entirely."Any spec is going to have BiS gear. Removing +Spirit options isn't going to change the fact that people are going to be checking their upgrades versus a spreadsheet; the items on the spreadsheet will just be different, and potentially not as optimal.

It is more like they didn't have the development time to properly itemise and so cut stuff that the least people care about (eg in early Wrath +crit cloth was rare as hens teeth and the Shadow Priests raged).

"Yo priests, we herd you like less gearing choices, so we put less gear in your raid so you can't regen while you regen."

"To make you look at other gearing options, we've decided to remove other gearing options."...kind of reminds me of another famous quote... how did it go?"We had to destroy the village to liberate it."

And this is after they just got through saying at the beginning of the expansion that spirit is a healer stat and all healers should want spirit.

@theRaptorNot enough developement time? Did you really just say that about the raid that was supposed to come out months ago, after 5 mans got scrapped and whole other smallish raid dropped? How long do you think it takes to knock mastery, crit, or haste off a couple of pieces and stick some spirit on it?
