i don't think its too bad, and is pretty much what you said. purified where you get a good socket bonus, i did say two however and you are saying pretty much every bonus. One thing i did not take in to consideration, much of the newer gear seems to have higher bonuses, so make sure you do some basic math before you decide.Originally Posted by Worshaka
there is a point though where you really don't need any more regen I find that to be between 270 and 290 assuming shadow fiends are used at the right times, but i noticed different people have different results with this, this is where spirit loses some attractiveness in my mind. If you find yourself with 50%+ mana at the end of difficult raid bosses then chances are you have more than enough regen.
there are a few items like this but many times there is a better pure dps item available. cross gearing would make your gemming strat a bit different.Some allaround gear that fitts for both healing and dpsing (more usuall now with the new haste buff to priests) have, but it's not usuall Smiley
And, never seen tho, if there is a yellow socket with a 4spi bonus you should take recless, not only cuzz the PP sais so but also cuzz extra stats is allways good ;P
(side note): i'm not completly gemmed using my theory because things changed with 3.3 and i didn't feel like spending the gold when i'll be replacing gear
