My 4.3 Spriest BiS list so far
*This list does not include the Madness of Deathwing proc weapons. For a list of said weapons just ask.*
This is what I've come up with from the gear that is available thus far. Please leave feedback on improvements (especially trinkets!) Enjoy!
Helm: Hood of Dying Light - Warmaster Blackhorn
Neck: Opal of the Secret Order - 1,250 Valor Points
Shoulder: Mantle of Dying Light - Hagara the Stormbinder
Chest: Robes of the Dying Light - Ultraxion
Back: Woundlicker Cover - 1,250 Valor Points
Bracers: Bracers of Unconquered Power - Tailoring
Gloves: Gloves of Liquid Smoke - Spine of Deathwing
Waist: Cord of the Slain Champion - Warlord Zon'ozz
Legs: Leggings of the Dying Light - Yor'sahj the Unsleeping
Foot: Splinterfoot Sandals - 1,650 Valor Points
Ring1: Ring of the Riven - Hagara the Stormbinder
Ring2: Signet of Suturing - Shared Boss Loot
Main Hand: Vagaries of Time - Morchok
Off Hand: Ledger of Revolting Rituals - Ultraxion
Wand: Finger of Zon'ozz - Warlord Zon'ozz
Trinkets: Cunning of the Cruel (Shared Boss Loot) for AOE heavy fights
Variable Pulse Lightning Capacitor (Ragnaros) for single target dps.
Insignia of the Corrupted Mind - Yor'sahj the Unsleeping
Will of Unbinding - Spine of Deathwing
This list totals out at 1797 Hit after reforging all secondary stats to Spirit/Hit, so obviously reforging every item won't be necessary. Don't forget your 55 spirit from the leg enchant as well!
I hope you find this helpful and please play around with it! I want feedback and in no way saying this is the "final" BiS list for normal mode 4.3 loot.
Excellent Curious question thou, should we break our Four pc T12 bonus in favour of dual 2pc bonus? If so which pieces of the tier set should try and secure right away?
I've been at 16% hit for the last month. WMO showed I missed on average 1-3 abilities per fight, TOTAL. Even on Alysrazor... Hit cap is not needed!
Not needed as such, but if you miss your mind blast on Ragnaros and a fire elemental wipes the raid you'll feel a little sheepish.
Bad example. The fire elementals aren't bosses so the hit cap is much lower for them.

Very true. Also, being around 16.25% hit as shadow might miss a mind flay or two during a boss fight ON the boss. Don't fret about it.
