They say a picture is worth a thousand words…
I’ll give you a moment.
All set? Ok, moving on!
What we have here, ladies and gentlemen, is a failure to accessorize. I mean, who wears gems that color with that robe? Ok, I know… sometimes function supersedes fashion, but this is fail on even that level. Why, why, why would you put Spell Penetration gems in Healing gear?
I mean, I’m just as concerned as anyone about the level of Holy Resistance tanks are stacking these days, and plate can be tricky to heal through. I’ve been trying to convince our MT to go with something more organic; I mean not only will it just soak up Healing but it’ll breathe a lot better and provide some much-needed ventilation (if you know what I mean).
Sarcasm aside, folks, Spell Penetration is for PVP. Even then, it could be argued to be useless for PVP Priests of the non-Shadow variety because there is no such thing as Holy Resistance.
Putting Spell Penetration gems in Healing gear just shows that you are a noob–which is convenient, I suppose, because it means I don’t have to put effort into getting to know you only to discover it later.
