The Firelands Loot Debacle

There’s a lot of heat going on right now regarding the Firelands loot table, and how priests have been “singled out” regarding a lack of spirit gear. Admittedly, this does affect priests of all three specs to one degree or another, but this is most heavy-handed toward holy priests over either discipline or shadow (though probably more to shadow than discipline due to their itemization preference). Yes, I’m very strongly opinionated about it. Yes, I could also be wrong. I am writing this post on the provision that, if you want to tell me that I’m wrong, you’ll be able to tell my why I’m wrong.

To that end, it is perfectly reasonable that priests in general feel slighted that there is such a lack of gear that’s itemized for them. To be quite honest, after seeing the loot tables, I was disappointed with the lack of stat allocation choices as it was in order to be able to try out some new things, when looking at the spirit gear available. After seeing finalized loot tables, I’m honestly baffled regarding the complete lack of choice there is altogether.

Tier 12 Revisited – The Four-Piece Fiasco

Since my previous post regarding the Tier 12 set bonuses for healing priests, there have been some changes made to the set bonuses. In one regard, there are some optimists out there that liked the previous version of the four-piece bonus. Admittedly, I did think that there were some benefits to it, as I outlined before.

Despite that, though, there was a lot of feedback from other users regarding this particular four-piece bonus. I mentioned previously that prior, it was very reliant on other players to make our four-piece bonus work. Beyond that, there’s the RNG aspect of it (something no one really cares for, and remains), the coloring possibly causing problems, and communication issues. Unfortunately, the cons really did outweigh the pros in this case.

Tier 12 Preview – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

Some of the new tier sets have come out with Blizzard’s official preview of tier sets, and they’ve also released current tentative information regarding set bonuses. This is obviously one of those things that’s hot on everyone’s minds, which is perfectly okay. Rightly so, it should be. Clearly, there are a lot of things that can go well, or can go poorly, with each individual set bonus, but for priests, it’s a little more complicated than that.

Priest T12

All in all, I think there’s a good amount to be said, both on a positive note, as well as the negative connotations that can come with the priest healing tier set. Personally, though, I think the absolute best part of it is the way it looks, but of course, this is subjective. So let’s take a look at the set bonuses and discuss what can come of it. The good, the bad, and the ugly.
