Feb 29th 2012 2:04AM Hi Slinn,
So here's the basic rundown of your problem: You don't have the raw stats to keep up with any measurable amount of damage.
You have no enchants or gems. These are things you absolutely need for progression content. Even relative progression content. I understand the desire to avoid spending tons of money on stuff that's going to be obsolete very quickly but throwing some relatively cheap lesser enchants/gems could go a long way.
At a glance I figure you could pick up the following on the relatively cheap:
Cloak - Intellect (+30)
Gloves - Haste (+50)
Shield - Mastery (+50)
Wrist (Possibly) - Spell Power (+23) from WotLK
Weapon - Exceptional Spell Power (+50, WotLK)
Ghostly Spellthread (50 int, 45 spirit)
Boots - Haste (50 haste)
Shoulders - Your profession buff! Felfire Inscription! Do it! Do it now! (130 int, 25 haste)
Ebonsteel belt buckle
Gems, you've given up 5 gems. Even socketing 30 int/15 int+15 haste green quality gems in to them you're missing out on 140 int, 30 haste, 10 crit assuming you stick to int/haste gems with socket bonuses.
For the (relatively) low cost of the following you could be...
4 blackfallow ink
10 infinite dust
2 greater celestial essence
2 greater cosmic essence
1 lesser cosmic essence
+270 intellect (an approximately 8.5% gain over what you have)
+73 spell power
Keep in mind, this could cost you a fair bit if you bought it all outright on the auction house with mats but shopping around a bit can probably get you some deals. I'm currently sitting on a pile of +mastery to shield enchants because they're selling for less than a gold on my server and that's not worth moving.
In total this'll cost you several hundred gold, so pick what you can do carefully and see if you have any friends who can help you out.
Also, drop Ancestral Resolve and Totemic Reach in favor of three points in Acuity. You can use the output right now.
Good luck. :)
Feb 20th 2012 10:29PM You're assuming that Holy Nova is going to stay even remotely like what it works as now.
If you don't think a player-centric heal can be effectively reworked to produce results that make other healers jelly than you haven't been paying any attention to how Holy Paladins are doing on H Ultraxion lately. ;)

Jan 11th 2012 5:23PM Matt, were you ever an Exalted player? You strike me as one who'd love Solars. :)

Sep 24th 2011 8:21PM As an avid D&D player (Main was named "Eberron") I support this Gruumsh inspired article. Carry on, good soldier.
Jul 20th 2011 5:10PM How about a gear list for ferals? I'd also like to see some discussion regarding bears and PVP gear.
It seems like there's a dirth of Haste in this tier. Given there isn't a Mastery helm before Rag at least a 2p PVP piece becomes a strong option considering the relative difficulty of getting a hold of anything beyond a 353 shoulder.
It's my goal atm.

EXPOSE... my body.
