    Because when you can keep pulling that's just better than having to wait around. Do whatever works for you, but that set up does me fine.

    How do Healing trinkets rank ? (SH)
    Got H Thok Tooth, and Flex Amp/Samophlange.
    Thok seems to be purty bad seeing how it doesn't proc mastery.

    Amp + Tooth unless you're low on mana then use the Samophlange.

    In which hc fights does EF do better than SH? Also, haste breakpoints don't matter if you're going SH, right?

    Malkorok hc.

    First question: Malkorok and Spoils on 25 (remember, on Spoils you're a 10 man raid). Everything but Thok on 10.

    Second question: No, they do not.

    Even on sha and norushen? I've tried both and I do better with SH. (10 man)
    Also, if going EF would it be better to get more haste? Currently I've got the 2nd breakpoint and 45% mastery unbuffed.

    EF is more HPS. Whether it is better or not is debatable. At least I used EF on all fights except for THok like nightfalls said and it worked wonders.

    7170 haste BP should be fine, then all out int and/or mastery depending which you prefer. Some go for int, some for mastery.

    Also it's not that SH is absolutely required on 10H Thok, but it is an option and many prefer it. EF can be used for Thok as well.

    I have Heroic Prismatic Prison of Pride, regular Thoks and regular Dysmorphic Samophlange of Discontinuity. Which 2 should I be using?

    I only have a pally at 85 and haven't touched it in a while, but the beacon of light glyph got me interested. Would it be possible or even efficient to constantly swap beacon on cd by changing your focus target in between globals and macroing "/cast [@focus,exists] beacon of light" into most of your heals? That sounds like a lot of work and fun to me, but I'm not sure I'm not getting the wrong impression. I know the 3 second cooldown would be a big limitation, I'm mostly interested in if that's how the ability works.

    The Prismatic Prison (regardless of item level and yours is Heroic) is not even a question.

    The previous poster was deciding between Heroic Thok and Flex Dysmorphic to which I suggested Heroic Thok (more Intellect/throughput) unless he had mana problems even with some extra spirit, in which case you'd go with a Dysmorphic (plus on fights where there is zero stacking).

    For you, it's the reverse since your trinkets are both the same item level, a default should be the Dysmorphic unless you absolutely are stacked on mana for a fight (even with reforging out of spirit) AND it's a stacked fight (Thok comes to mind) in which case you can switch. As a good mnemonic, in general, Thok's trinket is good for his fight.

    Why wouldn't you just cast the Beacon instead of constantly changing your focus?

    Well I tested it out some, I was under the impression that beacon couldn't be cast mid global, that's not the case though, so a simple mouseover macro would work in that case. You can't however cast beacon while channeling a spell. If the spell finishes casting after the global ends then you would have to target/mouseover the person you wanted to beacon and then swap to the person you wanted to cast the heal on, wasting some efficiency over the course of a fight. Using a macro could allow you to cast beacon on one target and another spell on a different target simultaneously. You do run into some problems though using a focus as your target. If you put the focus cast of beacon before the heal in the macro it would freeze up your macro if beacon is on cd. I tried putting a "clearfocus" line after the heal as well as an "exists" with the focus beacon, but this caused me to lose my focus if I queued a spell up while casting. I don't really play holy pally anymore so I may just be sounding like a tard make things more complicated than they are.

    Hey guys i want to start CMs on my hpally and have no idea how i should be gemming. Right now i am going the haste gear route because i hear its the best (even though i also hear that mastery gearing is up there, but i hear more people say go haste). I also read somewhere that a crit gear build wasnt half bad. Any thoughts on this? My main raid gear set is for mastery (solid mastery gems in yellows etc), would that gear set also work without re-gemming? I know what to expect from CMs even though i haven't healed any of them (have a some done on my warrior). Im not an Alch (Eng/BS) so would price of progress be good enough (since it was one of the better trinkets for us early in the xpac) or should i try and get the trinket out of ToES? Any other CM input would also be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.

    tldr:
    1. How should we be gemming for CMs?
    2. Stat priority?
    3. What trinkets? (maybe a list of options? )
    4. Anything else you'd like to add regarding cms.

    1. Intellect would be my pick, then mastery.
    2. Mastery > Haste > Crit works fine but you can try to alter around.
    3. You want the Relic of Chi-Ji for sure, get something else for the second trinket (possibly Spirits of the Sun).

    You can use your raid gear and do fine for Golds easily, no need to spend tons of $$$.

    I got 4 new items tonight (Legendary cloak + 2 heroic pieces from Immerseus + bracers), which was a massive gear boost. With that I decided to do some reworking of my stats and after reading this thread from about pg. 24 onward, I've (sort of) reached some conclusions. Also know that I do 10m normals, just starting heroics, currently 2 healing most fights with a resto druid (or occasionally a disc priest, who is our third healer when needed).

    It seems like for my current gear level (554) and the content I'm in, the way to go is full Mastery, while maintaining 3506 haste and "adequate spirit". I had previously been running with a lot of spirit (~15.5k + reg DSoD/reg TF Horridons), but am now trying to see how low I can go. Obviously I won't know this until I clear the rest of SoO tomorrow and next week and feel it out for myself, but I was curious with the trinkets I'm running what you guys might consider to be a good level of spirit for healing 10m content? Currently after my re-working I'm sitting right at 13k spirit, but will have some spirit gems waiting in the wings if things seem tight come tomorrow night.

    Just swap your blue gems, you're going for a Mastery focus but those aren't Mastery focused. After that don't try and drop anymore Spirit or you'll be in danger of becoming a burdon in heroic. You can also get rid of the Haste gem(s) with a more optimized reforge, you'd only need the one reckless to obtain the perfect 3506.

    Heres a link to the AMR created shopping list you need to change what you have currently to be perfect. And heres a link to the settings you'd need to use to obtain that if you want to use AMR from here out, just change the static Spirit to match what your gear can do (13200 in the shopping list linked above).
