    We want to reach Haste breakpoint, it is 3506 - 7170 - 10867.

    If you do not have BiS gear, follow these reforges:


    1. If gear has Spirit + Mastery, do not reforge.

    2. If gear has Spirit + Haste, reforge Haste to Mastery.

    3. If gear has Spirit + Crit, reforge Crit to Mastery.

    4. If gear has Haste + Mastery, reforge Haste to Spirit.

    5. If gear has Crit + Mastery, reforge Crit to Spirit.

    If you have BiS gear, use the guide below.

    Couple of things.

    First, Engineers can do both and enchant and Synapse Springs.

    Second, ith this setup, you are ignoring haste breakpoints? What level 45 talent does this BiS list fit into, in your opinion?

    Fixed the Engineering one, the Haste breakpoint one I'm still working on, reforges should be changed soon.

    I'm confused. Your stat priority does not match your gem choices.

    If you think gemming for Int is best, why not in red sockets? Similarly, why would you use Zen in yellow and blue sockets instead of Purified or Artful?

    And if you don't think you should gem for int then why not use fractured or sparkling in prismatic sockets?

    You don't want to gem spirit, 16.3K spirit unbuffed is around what you want to aim for, with the throughput you get, considering your other healers are good, hopefully they are otherwise you wouldn't be able to get this gear, then you'd never go oom and your healing throughput will be insane. Any spirit lower than 16.3k I noticed that you tend to go oom a lot quicker.

    Keep in mind these gems and reforges do not apply for every piece of gear, it only applies for when you have FULL BiS gear.

    replace Dysmorphic Samophlange of Discontinuity with http://www.wowhead.com/item=102293 and the list is looking good

    You missed my point. Your gems are inconsistent. I said if you want to gem int then prioritse int in all slots, not just prismatic. The alternative would not be to gem spirit unless you are a tier behind in gear, the alternative would be to gem mastery (or even haste), in which case you would use fractured (or quick) in prismatic.

    Also any ideal spirit threshold you give on forums is pretty redundant as it depends on trinkets, raid size, composition, and fight.

    That's the dps amp trinket, not the healer amp trinket, which is absolutely terrible and you lose out 1.6-1.8k int per second on average on equip. Very, very bad choice.

    Healing style is actually the biggest culprit in deciding the "ideal spirit threshold". Trinkets, raid size, composition and fight are all minor factors in face of spell rotation and downtime for mana management.

    If you cast more, you will need more spirit, and if you cast less as your playstyle, you will need less spirit.

    To be human is to possess superior intelligence to other species, yet channel that otherwise-wondrous potential into the most degenerate of endeavors rather than benefiting the world.
