Is The Val'anyr Useful For Soloing?

Postby Aestu » Sun Aug 08, 2010 8:18 pm

So, I got my Val'anyr tonight. I'm prot/ret - always have been, since 2.2 - and don't see myself going holy anytime soon.

I am wondering, however, does this thing have any use for soloing content? I'm not clear on the mechanics of the proc - could I weapon swap it, get it to proc with JoL or something (which as I understand it doesn't trigger the shield, but does the heal trigger the self-buff?), then put a shield on myself with Lay on Hands and Gift of the Naaru or somesuch? Or are there more creative uses?

Blessing of Ancient Kings has a 45s ICD, which resets when you equip it (or so I gathered by looking on wowhead).

I mean no disrespect, but I'm a bit curious why your guild chose you to get a Val'anyr if you haven't been holy in a very VERY long time.

I've never been holy. I completed the first half from pugging Ulduar week after week, and our Mimiron Head sales gave me an opportunity to get the remaining frags.

It was my 50th Feat of Strength.
