Ok I have been producing a lot of 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 throughput focused gear list. These are discipline priest gear lists but the same applies to holy lists. So, what do you see?
I see the same items in slightly different positions in the ranking. So what does this mean?
You can pretty much ignore gear lists and just rely on item levels. All this has proven is what we already knew. That is, that as a generalisation, a higher iLvl on the item means better (well duh). Items of the same iLvl are pretty much sidegrades. As long as you get gear which is “healing gear” you can’t really go wrong with the higher the iLvl of the item the better it is.
Likewise compare my disc gear list at top with my holy gear list. Same situation. Same gear slightly different order. Sure holy priests like spirit a bit more than Discipline ones, but if you stick to the, “Higher iLvl of the item means better. Items of the same iLvl are pretty much sidegrades” mantra you can’t really go wrong.
What do you think?
