Devout Set, or Not Devout Set; That Is My Question

I bought the Devout Bracers when I dinged 52 for about 10g. I couldn’t remember at the time which was Priest and which was Mage, so I also bought the Magister’s Bindings since they were on the cheap. I sold the Magister’s Bindings yesterday for 35g, a nice 12g profit.

Back to my point, I should be hitting 55-56 before the expansion comes out. With an experienced MC/BWL/Naxx guild, should I even bother running UBRS after UBRS after Scholo for my Devout set, only to eventually get full tier 3, 4, or 5 gear? Would Truefaith Vestments, and other craftable or buyable gear keep me too weak to be usefull in a raid of that intensity level?

Don’t get me wrong, I will still be running those instances because they are fun, but they are a pain, when you have to run them over and over, knowing they are your only hope for a set piece to drop.

With Gitr, I had only gone into MC as far as Garr, and I never did get a chance to take down Ony, so the high-end raiding is completely foreign to me, as far as how gear affects your ability to contribute.

Uldaman Down

I finally used the LFM last night. I got Wakarathe, a guildie 60 mage, to join me and I found a husband/wife duo of 45s rogue and shaman to join us. We went in the back door and cleaned out the entire instance with no deaths, thanks to Klik. I was back in the saddle again, and I healed in the highest instance yet.

After we took out the big stone woman in the map room, I got her blue cloth leggings, went into her chamber and my computer completely locked. [Read more…]

Priest builds

It’s time to start looking at what path to take for my builds. I need to install Call to Arms to get into some groups for doing some instances soon. It won’t be long before it’s time for Stockades, and I’ll need to reduce my threat when healing. Improved Renew was one of my favorite talents with Priestr. I could put up a bubble renew all day on party members.

I have yet to group up with anyone for a PuG or like-level instancing with Deadr, so I don’t know how well he heals yet. LOL. Come to think of it, I don’t have any +Healing gear yet. Priestr always had 2 sets, +INT and +Healing. I’m sure not concerned about running out of mana at this point, but if I replace my +INT, I’ll be taking a pretty big hit on the mana pool.

I haven’t even begun to look into the Shadow line to see how cool it is, so I still feel pretty much in the dark about how much healing one is giving up with that build. I’m going to look into getting healing gear, but going Shadow for grinding damage and see what kind of mix I can make out of that.
