Hi, I'm a holy paladin with five different trinkets and I'm confused on which ones to use. I've been trying to do research to see what the best pair would be, but I'm having a hard time finding a clear answer.
Currently I have:
Lightning-Imbued Chalice 502
Inscribed Bag of Hydra-Spawn 502
Spirits of the Sun 491 (raid finder level with maximum upgrades)
Qin-xi's Polarizing Seal 489
and Soothing Talisman of the Shado-Pan Assault 522
Any help I could receive would be much appreciated. Thanks.
I would say your best options are Spirits of the Sun and Soothing talisman of the Shado-Pan Assault. The int+regen trinkets tend to work out much better for us than any other sort of proc trinket. I say that SotS is better than Qin-xi's because having passive int is much more reliable then proc based int (which may proc when you don't need it). In comparison, a spirit proc doesn't really have this problem as it is going to be regen either way.
This teir has really weird healing trinkets, with the Horridon one being the only strong upgrade from previous teir.
Someone wrote up a really good review on 5.2 trinkets which can be found here: http://shamannebula.wordpress.com/20...dium/#comments
The data there might be a little old, but I'd compare that with a 496 Spirits of the Sun, where you get 1157 int + 1210.8 spi average.
If I were you, I'd go with the Soothing Talisman + Spirits of the Sun.
Swap out SoS with Horridon's Last Gasp if you're able to get it.
I thought we were shooting for Horridon's and LIC? Did I miss a nerf or is the LFR LIC not worth it?
Also, for what it's worth, I am wearing the Heroic 535 Horridon's Last Gasp. It is kind of hit and miss. It has fights where it's proc upon proc and others where I am just getting an intellect boost. I think I had a boss kill where I got 5 procs and then the next boss got like 28.
LIC has a high PPM and most raiders will take a heroic LIC over SoS upgraded.
I will not replace my SoS until I have a heroic LIC - and that is only for sheer throughput.
Until then, I will not and can not lose my upgraded SoS - the mana regen would take too large a hit.
