Dec 19th 2009 4:01AM @BubblePriest That may be because so many people keep chanting the mantra "If the tank dies, it is the healer's fault. If the healer dies, it is the tank's fault. If the dps dies, it is the their own damn fault." If you are a healer that actually believes that to be true, you will probably let all the dps die on The Black Knight and still think you are a good healer. It is pretty sad, and one of the reasons why I am happy that most of my characters either have a tank spec or a heal spec.
Dec 7th 2009 10:07AM What would I be stacking Serendipity for? As a raid healer, Greater Heal is not particularly good in any way, and after the nerf or Prayer of Healing, it is not that strong anymore. When I heal as holy, I mostly use Renew, Circle of Healing and Prayer of Mending, along with Surge of Light procced Flash Heals.
Dec 7th 2009 3:33AM The big problem with the healing priest set bonuses is that they are both based around Flash Heal. Holy priests rarely use Flash Heal unless they get a Surge of Light proc. Discipline priests rarely use it unless they are on tank healing.
I think that for tank healing discipline priests, the 2-piece set bonus might be decent, though it will all depend on how the hot works. The funny thing is that for discipline, it seems like the shadow set might be a lot stronger stat wise than the heal set. Both the hat, the shoulders and the chest are pure throughput with spellpower, haste and crit, which is easily better than their healing set counterparts with spirit over haste.
Of course the full loot table hasn't been revealed yet, but unless there are offset pieces that are stronger, I can easily see disc priests going for 2-piece healing set along with three pieces from the shadow set. For holy, getting the set doesn't seem worth it. The only reason to get it would be if the offset pieces available are weaker than the tier.
