I posted this on the EU Priest forums, but not everyone goes there so trying to get a nice amount of people on this and I usually post here anyway
So there has been a lot of complaints about our tier sets stat wise, be it Holy complaining about the (4) bonus, Disc about the Haste or Shadow about some items being questionable (the healing legs are better than Shadow, 20 stam vs more haste iirc?)
I am primarily a Holy Priest (on raid healing ofcourse) with Disc as my dual, so my discussion is focused on the healing stats. I tend to prefer Crit to Haste as I fail to see the use of haste unless heavily stacked and try to aim for crit instead when I can for gear choices, looking at the Healing set we have 2 Crit pieces and 3 Haste pieces, I suppose I shouldn't say that this is bad for me as Holy as I don't want the (4) bonus that much, but as a Disc I may complain.
I'm looking at the Tier vendor at the moment and the Shadow Gloves really catch my eyes over the Healing gloves and the Helm looks very nice with Haste and Crit (over the spirit which we tend to shy away from more and more).
My Priest tends to stack Intellect for the heavy mana pool and the best return I can get from Replenishment (and crit which give me mana!). Now what I'm trying to get at is that perhaps we should aim for the Holy Helm and Robe for the PoH (2) and get the Shadow Gloves and Shoulders (though if you can get the shoulders, you can probably get the Vezax shoulders which are better anyway.
I think I made a point in this thread or opened some discussion, I got distracted along the way.
