Hello, just as some background I've been healing the majority of this expansion from my monk healer in a casual 10man, and, aside from myself, my healing team consists of a Disc Priest and a Holy Priest. I've decided to heal from my shaman alt this tier; so, up until Tuesday I have strictly played my shaman as Enhancement and geared as such, so I've gone from no Restoration gear to ilvl 511 in a little under a week. My question is: Would the T15 522 2p with shoulders and pants be worth replacing the 540 shoulders off Fallen Protectors with the 535 timeless Wavecrest pants?
I'm sitting around 12,000 Spirit, 27,326 spell power, 9.43% haste, 14.57% crit and 51.78% mastery for those that don't want to open the link. (Server went down as I was posting this, so it will be a little higher if I gem the T15 522 pants with 320 spirit and 160 spirit/160 crit and add the Sanctified Master's Spellthread [+285 intellect/165 spirit].)
Wavecrest Pants have: 1,679 Intellect, 1,093 Spirit, 1,093 Mastery and one Red Socket with a 180 Intellect Bonus.
Shoulderguards of Dark Meditations have: 1,209 Intellect, 810 Spirit, 846 Critical Strike, and two Blue Sockets with a 120 Intellect Bonus.
This comes to a bonus of 652 Intellect, 130 Spirit, 421 Mastery, and 526 Critical Strike. I only lose 947 Haste, some of which I can reforge to from the Mastery off the pants. Would this trade off of stats be worth losing the +25% of normal healing on a 3rd target from HST?
I was also curious about the value of the 5% constant haste from Ancestral Swiftness vs the healing output of Echo of the Elements.
My appologies if I should have posted this in another thread, or if it has already been asked.
