Jov sez: My Gear SucksMarch 24, 2009
Or how I learned to stop worrying and hate T8.
Ignoring the ninja-priest look of the set at large (which I totally don’t get) has anyone actually looked at the stat allocation and bonuses and scratched their heads going wtf blizzard?
First of all, stat allocation. 364 Int, 318 Spirit, and sporting 3 red, 2 yellows and 2 blue sockets, it’s just the sort of thing designed to make my inner holy priest squeal with joy.
And then the bonuses. 2 piece increases crit chance of PoH by 10%. To which I say “eh, okay, whatever.” And the kicker: 4 piece gives me 250 spellpower for 5 sec after casting PW:S.
bwa? WTF, Blizzard?
Okay, okay, at base it’s not so bad. If I’m a Disc priest, I’m using shield on about every cooldown. Oh wait, except for that tiiiiiny little issue that a Discipline priest is going to look at the stats on T8 and run for the hills.
And any holy priest in raid with a Disc? Is going to be spanked for so much as thinking about using their shield button.
I’ve never been a huge collector of tier loot. Personally, unless there’s a set bonus that’s just THAT GOOD (T2 had awesome bonuses, imo) there’s no real reason to get Tier over non-set. Ulduar kinda drives that point home.
