Need more priestly throughput?


Just a short post to provide some numbers for those that think my previous numbers were too mana regen focused.

I have just taken my existing model and bumped the spell power to MP5 ratio from 0.6 to 1.5.

Stat Disc Holy
MP5 1.00 1.00
Spirit 0.35 0.90
Intellect 1.04 0.81
SP 1.50 1.50
Crit rating 0.80 0.62
Stamina 0.20 0.20
Haste rating 0.73 0.76

Gear lists


( Pawn: v1: “Discipline31”: Stamina=0.2, Intellect=1.0457, Spirit=0.3516, RedSocket=21.8657, CritRating=0.8075, MetaSocket=21.96, HasteRating=0.7312, BlueSocket=11.3657, YellowSocket=16.7315, SpellPower=1.5, Mp5=1)

( Pawn: v1: “Holy31”: Stamina=0.2, Intellect=0.8163, Spirit=0.908, RedSocket=20.0305, CritRating=0.6246, MetaSocket=17.1425, HasteRating=0.7647, BlueSocket=13.7941, YellowSocket=13.0609, SpellPower=1.5, Mp5=1)


If you compare the Discipline numbers to the throughput numbers from The Doctor on Elitist Jerks you’ll see they are pretty similar.

  • MP5 – 1.00
  • Spirit – 0.33
  • Intellect – 0.97
  • SP – 1.49
  • Crit rating – 0.72
  • Stamina – 0.00
  • Haste rating – 0.88

Note that i’ve normalised his original numbers to 1 MP5 so they can be directly compared.

If you compare the LootRank for these throughput orientated weightings with my previously published weightings you will see what I have been saying about the usefulness of gear lists. The top ten items in almost all slots are the same, the order in which the top 10 items is ranked is different to varying degrees.
