View Full Version : PvP Gemming

Dinged 80 on my priest yesterday. Managed to get the Hateful Glad Satin Chest from Archavon too. I was the only priest there, so whilst it's not the healing version it's still decent for disc healing I think (and as a dps chest) and I was the only priest there.

So, it has two gem slots. 1 red, 1 yellow. For disc based PvP, can someone recommend gems + enchant to put on it please? I realise it's still early an no-one entirely knows what's going to work. But which gems would you recommend? I've currently gemmed 19 spell power in red, 16 haste in yellow. But I think the yellow slot could also be +resi or +hit (couldn't find any resi gems though).

Which enchant also?

Anyone have a link to a decent level 80 Disc build too? I was gunna just nick Hydrás but it looks like he was doing some instance healing when I last checked and he had some strange talent choices.

Seems we're back to how it was in s1 so basically you need sta,then some sta and don't forget to add more sta,after that get some spellpower!

I know,i'm great at giving advice!

From a melee perspective, priests are so squishy atm that gemming and chanting for anything other than resi and sta (maybe sp/resi or sp/sta if the socket bonus is decent) would make no sense to me.

Yeah, I've gemmed 20 resi (from wintergrasp quartermaster) in boots. 8 resi + 12 stam in other yellow sockets. Spell power + stam in blue. That's so far. Raw spell power gems in red sockets.

I'm currently at 511 resi (expecting to break 600 in the next few days), there are times I get instagibbed but they are much rarer now. Sometimes I actually feel fairly tough with my spell power letting me down. Hoping even more gear will sort that out :)

Mhm,i've only gotten a few pvp pieces myself+ the crafted tailor set and already i think i'm surviving for quite a long time in comparison to only a few days back.
Ofc that could also just be me adapting (ie spamming holynova+shield,regen and prom)
Looking forward to the dualspecc patch now:)
