Hi I’m A Disc Priest and I Wanna Play In Naxx!

Ambrosyne was part of the initial “rush” to 80-I dinged roughly two weeks after release.  Not a server first by any means, but enough ‘ahead’ to recall somemany exceedingly painful heroics, and to throw myself at Naxx with whatever blues I had managed to collect.  I didn’t have a stat goal for getting into Naxx.  I didn’t have a list of gear/instances to grab.  I just followed everyone else where they wanted to go (bonus of being a healer-you can get dragged anywhere) and grabbed shiny healing plate.

Now I have a priest I’m graduating from alt status to main.  Since replacing a healer geared with many Naxx25 epics when Naxx25 is still progression for us is a tough wall to scale, I’m taking a more measured approach.  I have a gear list, and a rough stat marker-though finding said stat goal involved some digging.  1500 spell power, 15% crit, and 250 mp5 while casting.   I’m almost there, but there’s a definite push to top that.  Unfortunately we’re not running Naxx10 as a guild anymore, leaving me facing…pugs.  Ew, pugs. 

/shudder

It doesn’t help that any day I plan to do many heroics, I end up doing VH and Nexus and…that’s it.  Did I mention that a lot of the gear I want is in AN?  Yeah.  Fuck you, VH, for being the daily yesterday.  I hate that instance and its stairs and their LoS issues, complete with mobs that fling me back and interrupt heals.  

/grumbles

Anyway, here’s a gear list.  My original source is here, but I’ve gone through and pared it down to be a little more disc specific.  If there’s one particular item I think is win! over the others, it’s in a shiny color.

Head

Crown of Unbridled Magic
Eregos
Oculus Heroic

Binds when picked up
236 Armor
+46 Stamina
+62 Intellect
+52 Spirit
Meta Socket
Yellow Socket
Socket Bonus: +8 Critical Strike Rating
Requires Level 80
Equip: Increases spell power by 81.
The spirit is meh, but that’s a lot of int and the meta is good to have.  On the other hand, good luck getting a group for Occ. 

Forgotten Shadow Hood
Solramm
Culling of Stratholme Heroic

Binds when picked up
236 Armor
+54 Stamina
+44 Intellect
+66 Spirit
Meta Socket
Blue Socket
Socket Bonus: +8 Haste Rating
Requires Level 80
Equip: Increases spell power by 82.
It’s probably easier to get a group for HCoS, but it has so much less int and even more spirit.  And the socket bonus isn’t great at this stage of the game even for a socket bonus.

Elder Headpiece
Elder Nadox
Old Kingdom Heroic

Binds when picked up
236 Armor
+58 Stamina
+77 Intellect
+55 Spirit
Requires Level 80
Equip: Increases spell power by 91.
Yes, yes, more spirit: but high spell power and int still make it an option.

Volkhan’s Hood
Volkhan
Halls of Lightning Normal

Binds when picked up
228 Armor
+51 Stamina
+68 Intellect
Requires Level 78
Equip: Improves haste rating by 53 (1.87% @ L78).
Equip: Increases spell power by 81.
At lower gearing levels, more spell power to increase thoroughput is good…but the haste on this is not great at those same levels.  I much prefer the option below.

Static Cowl
Sjonnir
Halls of Stone Normal

Binds when picked up
225 Armor
+57 Stamina
+68 Intellect
Requires Level 77
Equip: Improves critical strike rating by 53 (1.44% @ L77).
Equip: Increases spell power by 61.
Same amount of int as the above.  Although it has less spell power, it does have crit.  This is my current goal for a head piece, because heroic occ can do die in a fire.

Shroud of Temptation
Drak’Tharon Keep Normal Quest Reward
Binds when picked up
Head Cloth
212 Armor
+45 Stamina
+46 Intellect
+59 Spirit
Durability 50 / 50
Equip: Increases spell power by 69.
This is a great starter helm for us until we get one of the above options.  Lyr’s currently sporting it.

Neck

Dragon Prow Amulet
World Drop
Binds when equipped
Unique-Equipped
Neck
+31 Stamina
+33 Intellect
+43 Spirit
Requires Level 80
Equip: Increases spell power by 50.
You can usually find this on the AH for reasonable prices, so this is a great piece to grab for your early forays into heroics. 

Lattice Choker of Light
Arcanist Ivranne in Dalaran for 25 Emblems of Heroism
Binds when picked up
+37 Stamina
+38 Intellect

Binds when picked up
+51 Stamina
+34 Intellect
Requires Level 80
Equip: Increases spell power by 50.
Equip: Restores 14 mana per 5 sec.
I believe that this is what I have on Lyr, currently.  Mp5 isn’t spectacular but better than spirit, and the extra stam helps this poor, squishy healer who dies.  A lot.

Shoulders

Runecaster’s Mantle
World Drop
Binds when equipped
Shoulder Cloth
218 Armor
+43 Stamina
+47 Intellect
+44 Spirit
Yellow Socket
Socket Bonus: +5 Spell Power
Durability 50 / 50
Requires Level 80
Equip: Increases spell power by 68.
The original list had more options, but I say just buy this on the AH and move on.  It’s the best option and the easiest to get.

Back
145 Armor
+37 Stamina
+31 Intellect
+38 Spirit
Red Socket
Socket Bonus: +4 Intellect

This one is a great, cheap starter option.  As opposed to, you know, the one below it.  Which is a great starter option but not cheap.

Great, but by the time I have that many badges I’m usually in Naxx already.  However, if you’re not…

Moonshroud Robe

Binds when equipped
300 Armor

Honestly, the KT rep robe is better.

It’s good, but again: haste.  I think the Ornate Woolen Stole is the better option due to higher crit, but this one isn’t bad if the loot gods decide they hate you.

I’m tired of bashing haste, so let me point this one out as a good option once your other stats are in order and you can begin stacking haste.  It’s not that haste is unimportant, or bad: just that when you’re starting out, haste can wreck your longevity without sufficient quantities of other stats to help you out.  If you’re raiding with people who don’t out-gear good bit, then you want longevity.

    Very good list! Tart was wearing most of your picks (minus the Heroic AN stuff because that instance can die a horrible firey painful death… kind of like tart did every time she set foot in there) The only one that I really differed on was the Robes. I wore the KT exalted ones and used the badge haste trinket. I prefer crit to haste, but with those 2 pieces, I could get a 1.1second pennance and a .5 sec flash heal. yum!

    Thanks a lot for this list. I’m definitely bookmarking it for when I get my priest to 80.

    You know I’ll run heroics with you when I can.

  4. #4 by Rivyn on March 27, 2009 - 11:38 am

    I will run hero Occ ANYTIME you want. I still need that damn instance for the Champion of the Frozen Wastes achievement.

    Don’t forgo all haste for crit. They’re both great stats for a disc priest, and you should try to have a balance of the two. I aim for about 20-25% holy crit and 10% haste unbuffed. Once you start adding shaman, boomkin, and mages (if they deem you worthy of their focus magic) to the mix, those numbers will go up quite a bit. These are my magic numbers, and i try to keep them as close as possible to maintain balance. Although you are right, if I have to choose between crit and haste, I’ll definitely go with the crit. I love those bubbles. (This is around what I had after Naxx 10, so lower them a bit for going into Naxx.)

    Another suggestion for a cloak: Deathchill Cloak. This is the crafted companion to Wispcloak, but has loads of yummy crit, haste and spell power instead of stats. I used this well into Naxx 25.
