I'm trying to help a friend with his resto shaman in 25 man raiding. I've been following the sticky's advice, mainly the priority system:
Int > Spirit (until you have 'enough') > First Haste Softcap (916 for non-Goblins) > Crit >= Mastery > More Spirit > More Haste
My friend has a Spi trinket so his pushing 2.8k Spi at the moment, and I feel he could probably be more effective by pushing points from Spi to Crit/Mastery instead. But I know its a personal thing, so how much Spi do you find enough for raiding?
(Also: None of the shaman in the guild stop at the 916 soft cap for haste, and don't reforge it down. Is this wise? It seems to me that they require more Spi because they're burning mana on Haste rather than Crit/Mastery.)
