I have a feeling this thread may go bad, but ah well.

I got this last week: http://www.thottbot.com/?i=52942 and it'll be a few more before I can get the reward, and in the mean time i thought I'd look into the potential of DPS weapons for a priest. Its highly likely that I'll be going 31/20 Disc/Holy and thus Bene/Ana just became kind of rubbish for dealing damage.
So the question I have to ask is that is it wrong for me to ever think of getting the Acolyte staff over the Augur staff? Or are there better alternatives as the Augur staff is now considered the Holy Grail? I always originally wanted Lokamir* due to its high heal/dam when combined with the right items. Strictly speaking does the benefit of higher +dam from Lokamir** pay off vs the lower +dam off the Acolyte staff which has +hit and crit on spells like Smite and Holy Fire?

*Well actually I always wanted bene/Ana but I'm kind of bored of it stuck to my back like a big flag for 5 months.

**And various offhands such as Master Dragonslayers Orb, Bag of Pwn, that new offhand from ZG.

If I had the choice between the Acolyte and the Augur staff, I'd take the Acolyte. Especially if you're still active in PVP. Like you said, the +%hit and %crit on top of a lot damage/healing are great.

You still have your benediction, so you still have the massive amount of +healing it gives you, should you descide to run MC/BWL.

btw: the Lokamir** you speak of, I couldn't find it anywhere, can you link that please?

I wouldn't like to say if the quest is repeatable though. I know that the Cenarion Circle quests from Vargus are meant to be, but they're the 'grind millions of badges' quests, rather than the 'grind bits of insect lords' ones.

Someone on Alla does say its repeatable though:
I just turned my in for the acolyte staff and i was able to get the quest again. So in theory a druid can make use of all three, that is, if he is lucky enough to get 3 reglias.
