Time for my unorthodox spec

Post by Ecnailla » Fri Apr 20, 2007 5:34 pm

Ok, short and long of it is, I have come to the conclusion I just don’t like raid healing. I did the same thing when we were raiding MC- I just quit playing Ec and all my time on my alts. I like healing 5 mans and I used to like 10 mans (UBRS) – but IDK, I just start to loath runs and eventually can’t talk myself into signing up. (Hell, I have only been to 2 or 3 Kara runs) I can’t fully explain it, but Bah- it is what it is. I even asked Colder to remove my raider rank.

I have always like pvp, but I really like the arenas. I am in a 3vs3 team and would love to get in a 5vs5 team (if your are interested let me know). I started arenas in shadow and found I was super squishy. Discipline worked much better because my survivability shot through the roof. Wow- I really really like Arena healing.

So… no more instance or raid healing for a while…New focus… you know what that means…

Time to respec

Survivability, healing… and dmg? Like lyz, but for pvp!

So here is the spec I’m gonna go with – what do you think?
My focus has shifted from lots of mana and decent heals, to high survivability and being capable of doing some dmg when needed. From what I have seen so far, I never need huge heals and for the arena, our goal is to make the fights quick, so mana isn’t a focus.


Here it is – Reflective shield mixed with pain suppression and a power infused mind flay… how many 70s can say that? : )

42/2/17 (all sites I can find at work aren’t linkable)

Discipline - 42 points
Unbreakable Will - rank 5/5
Improved Power Word: Fortitude - rank 2/2
Improved Power Word: Shield - rank 3/3
Martyrdom - rank 2/2
Inner Focus - rank 1/1
Meditation - rank 3/3
Improved Inner Fire - rank 3/3
Mental Agility - rank 4/5
Improved Mana Burn - rank 2/2
Mental Strength - rank 5/5
Power Infusion - rank 1/1
Reflective Shield - rank 5/5
Enlightenment - rank 5/5
Pain Suppression - rank 1/1

Holy - 2 points
Healing Focus - rank 2/2

Shadow - 17 points
Blackout - rank 5/5
Improved Shadow Word: Pain - rank 2/2
Shadow Focus - rank 5/5
Improved Psychic Scream - rank 2/2
Mind Flay - rank 1/1
Shadow Reach - rank 2/2

eh, i agree w/ Ec.
you're only going to gain 10% of total spirit as +dmg
odds are he's not going to sacrifice the +stam and +int gear for mad +spirit just go get a bit more dmg.

+ with the improved range on his mindflay...he could probably get off 2 before his target even gets back to him after the fearbomb lol.
+ w/ the power infused mindflay...yikes.
