    Titanium Spellshock Ring for Holy

    At what gear level should I replace the Titanium Spellshock ring with a JC + 32 sp gem in it?

    First of all, you should never ever use the JC 32 spell power gems in Red Sockets. That's just a waste of stats right there.

    Secondly, according to the latest simulationcraft, you shouldn't change the ring before

    a) Ring of Manifested Pain
    b) Lost Jewel
    c) Ulduar

    Why wouldnt I use it in a red socket, its prismatic so matches w/e color the slot is.

    Unless you only have 3 gem slots in your entire gear you should never use a Prismatic gem in its original gem colour slot (eg SP in red, int in yellow, stam in blue)
    This is where JCing gets its OP status from, you can put say a SP gem in a Blue socket and get a good bonus, rather than wasting half a hybrid gem on something you don't need

    You just answered your own question. You should be using it to keep your socket bonuses on blue sockets. Personally, I would never actually gem for spell power anyways. I always gem for intellect. I put 16 intellect gems in my yellow sockets and 27 intellect gems in my non-yellow sockets.
    I used to be hardcore, then I discovered how fun it is to get laid on an almost daily basis. I'll take sex over WoW any day, so now I'm casual.

    good reasoning, honestly i had 27 int in it to start, but was going to change it out for sp since the holy sheet on maxdps said to go for SP and i dont really struggle for mana at any point right now.

    back to topic, so i shouldnt replace it until i have those two rings posted above or hit ulduar lewt. thnx for hte input.

    For Holy there really isnt/cant be a set list. Some people favor crit and build a set around that and some people favor haste and stack that. Oh and some people have a balance set with just enough of both. Sp is always in style though. But every list i've seen has been different. just saying (this only applies to holy, not disc or shadow)

    I'd say stick a spirit gem in there as your accidental regen's gonna hit the floor come 3.1, and forget the socket bonus.

    Forget Spirit :P Doesnt have so much worth at patch 3.1.0

    I would go for spellpower or Int.

    It may have less worth (point for point) but that means it's twice as important because mana is a problem again. Forget the spellpower, go Spirit. Or Int.

    The "Holy" part of the topic weren't there when I replied. The post got edited.

    I assumed there was talk about shadow.
