10 Responses to Discipline priest gear list for 3.1

  1. simonie00 says:

    Thanks for updating the list with the newest patch.

    However, did you check the item it gave you before posting all this? Take for example the first shoulder: Conqueror’s Mantle of Sanctification. It has hit on it.. Not good at all..

    There is also a lot of items that has haste instead of crit. Yes, haste is good but crit is better for disc priest as our spells are almost all instant.

    I know this is the list that lootrank.com gave you but this should be revised to reflect disc needs.

  2. [...] important looking numbers over the last couple of weeks.  From these I have produced a couple of gear lists, including throughput, but with a longevity focus.  Contrast this with The Munch Lands more [...]

  3. BobTurkey says:

    I don’t get this aversion to any piece of gear that hit on it. The Conqueror’s Mantle of Sanctification is slightly better than the Conqueror’s Shoulderpads of Sanctification even though it has hit rating on it!

    Personally i’d take Shoulderpads because i’d be wanting the set bonus, but purely on the measurable attributes of the tiem the Mantle is slightly better.

    There is one caveat to this. This list has no real way of taking set bonuses into account.

    Actually thats not true I could have a crack at theorycrafting the value of the set bonues, but it requires even more assumptions and i’m a bit theorycrafted out ATM. The 2 piece bonus would have relatively small value but the 4 piece (+250 SP after casting PW:S) would have greater value.

    1) 250SP * 0.6 = 150MP5
    2) Requires 4 pieces (assumes you don’t already have the 4 piece bonus) to get it 150 / 4 = 37.5MP5
    3) Pluck an uptime out of the air, say 80% and you discover the 4 piece bonus is worth 37.5 x 80% = 29.5 MP5

    Add this to the existing value for the Shoulderpads and they come out on top. Darn now look what you’ve done! ;-) Ok maybe i’ll fiddle it a bit sometime.

    Even if I do this the Conqueror’s Mantle of Sanctification is still going to be better than the next item on the list (Mantle of the Unknowing), despite the hit rating on it.

    A better example is the Collar of the Wyrmhunter. It is a better hat than, for example, the Cowl of Vanity, even though it has hit rating on it. Would I suggest healers roll against DPS for it? No! Would I suggest you grab it if you are wearing the Cowl of Vanity and no one else wants it? Yes, absolutely!

    Haste vs Crit is completely personal preference. For a good recent post regarding this check out http://holydueg.wordpress.com/2009/05/06/for-crits-sake/

    Gobble gobble.

  4. simonie00 says:

    Thanks for answering :)

    I guess at the end it is being logic about it and get the pieces you need with the stats that reflect your game play. I have been playing my priest as disc for quite some time now and I know what I like.

    I prefer crit over haste because I do not use my biggest heals. Moreover, if I need to, I shield and get borrowed time.

    But, there is no way I would get a piece with hit on it for healing. It might be a piece that is worth more points at lootrank, but there are still other items good enough.

    Maybe there’s something I do not understand!

  5. BobTurkey says:

    I’ll fiddle the numbers a little to take into account set bonuses, but the fact will still remain that the T8 DPS head/shoulders is better than pretty much any of the lesser gear in that slot except the healing equivelent.

    If you’re say a shadow priest dual speced into either of the healing specs your DPS T8 gear is going to be better than pretty much any of the other options, even while in healing spec.
