Warlords of Draenor's gear system and spirit as a secondary stat

There has been some discussion recently, on Twitter, between Lead Systems Designer Greg "Ghostcrawler" Street and several players about some elements of the new gearing system, and how it applies to healers.

First up, I feel like, before we get into the specifics, I should quickly wrap up how the new system will work. You won't understand the rest of the article without this knowledge, so let's rattle through it. The new gearing system works as follows:
  • A piece drops.
  • It is plate, mail, cloth or leather.
  • It has crit and haste as secondary stats.
  • Its primary stat will change according to your spec, so if you're a caster it will be intellect, melee DPS could be strength or agility and so on.

  • There may also be tertiary stats on gear, such as +run speed, or -durability damage.
