I don't consider the trinket as bad as Fetzie does it. Given, it's not a huge heal, but it can be just that tidbid neccesary.

However, I normally run the Strength trinket (from Valor points), and keep Rising Wind in my back. If I suddenly need to switch to maximum survivability, I equip Rising Wind (together with the Stamina trinket from Lei Shen). The reason is not because Rising Wind is the (second)best, but because it also provides expertise, so I can swap the valor trinket in for Rising Wind and still be Expertise capped.

If you're looking to get the most dps out of your trinkets, then you're going to want Spark of Zandalari and Fabled Feathers of Ji'Kun. Which FFoJK has a lot of hit, it provides a lot of dps. The only other trinket I would consider for dps would be the 522 valor expertise one. As of now, I haven't found a need for anything other than dps trinkets while doing 25H fights.

Be warned though, the LFR versions of them have very mediocre proc rates.

This is going to sound really stupid, and I know. Just a thought, I got an Inscribed Bag of Hydra Spawn on Magera for my holy set, is it viable at all for tanking? You can reforge the spirit to haste and the bubble procs on WoG....

Unless the absorb scales with spell power (which I'm sure it doesn't) it isn't that useful. How often do you actually use WoG?

Unless the bubble procs very regularly from SoI heals I wouldn't use it over almost any of the tank or dps trinkets from this tier or last or some of the good blue trinkets for that matter.

I tend to WoG spam idk, i have no idea what the uptime is in a normal fight, but on the doll its never down for more than 15 seconds (I can't get it to refresh, it only procs when the bubble isnt up).

Hmmm, when you say you WoG spam how often do you mean?
It's almost always more effective to use holy power for SotR and save WoG for the times where you might die before your healers have chance to cast a heal.

Stam or Haste in 10 man?

Postby Kal » Fri Jun 28, 2013 7:51 pm

My Armory: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/proudmoore/Kallahan/advanced
Latest log: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/rt-842ownmrmw336rot/

Some quick background: I just started with a 10man that is working on Iron Qon, and though I'm definitely playing catch-up in gear and experience, it might work out well. Previously, I had tried a few teams that would get to Elegon and fall apart, or wipe on Horridon 4 times and quit. These guys are on their game and not quitters, the DPS is great, so wish me luck!

My Questions:

How much is "enough" health? I have a little over 800k buffed, and it feels comfortable, though I haven't checked the logs yet. The only thing I can say gave me real trouble was bats on Tortos hitting me with Drain the Weak. Otherwise, I'm not dying much. I'm open to reducing my effective health to get better DPS and more SotR, but I'm new to content past Horridon, so I don't know what way to go.

As for trinkets, I have Brutal Talisman (upgraded) in my bags. If I don't need so much health even after swapping gems and enchants to secondary stats, is this trinket good enough to swap out one of my Stam trinkets)?

Also, if there's any glaring mistakes anyone sees, I'd like to hear it.

I have just over 800k life buffed w/o shaman health increase for 25H and I'm never really in any danger of dying.

Our tanks in 25 hc (at lei shen closing to a kill now) run with 700ishk buffed and it's plenty.
The paladin however has so much haste his Mass Ress only has 5.5 seconds cast time!
