I say bring back the 2 hander healing maces
It may not be ideal but, that's WoW. It's a lot better than TBC, which was a lot better than vanilla.
If you expect itemization to be fair, you're just asking to get frustrated. It never will be.
wow this topic is WAAAY off where it should've been.
Either way. iam a holypally
My current weapon is Turning Tide (ilvl 226)
the most easily obtainable weapon upgrades would be:
Razorscale25 healing mace (ilvl 232)
Anub10 (ilvl 232)
these 2 weapons i have and will continue to pass on to other healers simply becuase i tryed for a REALLY long time dickbanging for 6 months in naxx for my weapon.
so the real upgrades now!:
hodir25 hardmode (ilvl 239) <-- we quit doing ulduar 25 week before last our raid has 2 of these maces)
legendary <---- i have 1 shard!
anub10 HARD(ilvl245)<- this is the 1st real upgrade!!! this is very easily obtainable imo, compared to turning tide.
Onyxia25 sword (ilvl245) <-- this sword has Hit rating not our BiS but i would steal it from any caster.
anub25 (ilv245) <--yada yada
so from turning tide the two weapons iam trying for are:
Mace of the Earthborn Chieftain anub10hard
Item Level 245
Equip: Improves critical strike rating by 50
Equip: Increases spell power by 621
Equip: Restores 25 mana per 5 secs
Polished Azuresong Mageblade <----- onyxia 25
Durability: 105 / 105
Requires Level 80
Item Level 245
Equip: Improves hit rating by 44
Equip: Improves critical strike rating by 51
Equip: Increases spell power by 621
6 months in nax? i'd have just killed myself. 2 weeks in ulduar and i had the 232 mace. don't worry about leg mace, 10 man anub heroic is already as good. and going to low lvl content like ulduar and nax sucks.
The mace is amazing, don't undersell it. We have three now in our main raids and four in guild (we got one from our PUG ulduar for one of our alts). The proc is an easy ~20% increase to your "healing". It is BIS by far and likely will be unmatched until the next expansion.
It's so good that our whole guild blows one day a week clearing Ulduar even though there is literally nothing else there anyone wants. We go there for the sole reason of getting another mace completed before IC.
They can also use fist weapons (naxx anyone?).Originally Posted by Joarrak
Druids can also use fist weapons and daggers.

we are also the only healers with plate and one of two who use shields... that seems a little unfair to the ones who aren't plate and cant use shields.... they should just make all the healers the same, all plate, all with every heal, all with every CD, all able to use every wpn, all with shields.. um... yeah then you'd have 1 healer....
nah pallys are fine...

Yes, I did notice that you didn't read the whole post, because what you said doesn't make any sense. Read the TL;DR version and try to disagree, but please do use correct info this time, ok?Originally Posted by Deaths
I'm still waiting for someone give me a magical solution for pvp-weapons. Why Holy Paladins are the only class in the game that only have one option to use?
And I know shamans can use staffs, but so we can use off-hands, and I'd never drop my shield for one.
I disagree with the concept that being a plate wearing healing class is some great boon. That comes into effect in a PvE environment once every never. And in the end, we come with less total heath than most clothies to compensate - a handicap that DOES tend to matter rather often.Originally Posted by Deaths
Frankly i find the idea of Paladin running around with daggers and staves to be....LOLWUT
I do agree that a healing mace should deff drop in both 10's and 25's to accomodate both types of raiders as its kinda bad (when take me for example) when you've been using the same mace off of 10 man KT since sometime last december only to get an upgrade this past Tuesday in ToC 10 thanks to the ONE healing weapon in Uld 25 never dropping for you...
I second that, I can't count the number of times I lolhealed through a Naxx25 to have some random crap drop off a Kel... Halp Blizz...
I don't see why blizzard won't let shaman use sword...in fact I find it kind of silly with all the stat homogenization that they are still restricting weapons on certain classes.Originally Posted by Raiss
Hopefully "at least" means "sometimes three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number flame shock shall tick, and the number of ticking shall be three. Four shalt thou not tick, nor either tick thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou holy lava burst of antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in my sight, shall suffer at least two more ticks of flame shock. Amen."
