Comparison of cloth gear with itemlevel 359 currently only available through raids. This excludes BOE, reputation and Tier items:
Chest: 1 spirit, 1 hit
Feet: 1 spirit, 1 with no hit
Hands: 1 spirit, 1 with no hit
Head: 2 spirit, 1 with no hit
Legs: 1 spirit, 1 hit, 1 with random enchant
Shoulder: 1 spirit, 1 with no hit
Waist: 1 spirit, 1 with no hit, 1 with random enchant
Wrist: 1 spirit, 1 with no hit
This means that the cloth drops have been set for Mages and Warlocks, 2 full classes, 6 specs in total, to fight over one type of gear, and priests, of all 3 specs, to fight over the other. There is NO reason to exclude Shadow from taking spirit gear. For leather and mail, everything has spirit on it. Point is moot.
Edit: If mages and warlocks had ANY use for spirit, it would be on their Tier gear. Since there hasn't been any spirit on any Mage or Warlock Tier gear since tier 9 in the last expansion, take the hint ;-) And btw, Tier 11 for Shadowpriests does have spirit on it.

^ That is just me being picky, but meh. If a class has a talent to convert spirit to hit (priest, shaman and druid) they should be able to roll on the item, period. Seeing as how shadow priests are often discussed in this, please regard the fact that they have to compete with 2 other classes (mage and warlock) of ANY spec for hit cloth, whereas they only have to compete with fellow priests when it comes to spirit gear. 6 specs (hit) vs 3 specs (spirit).
Wow, I didn't even realize Warlocks and Mages do not have a talent that converts spirit to hit. Blizzard failed once again. They should make spirit convert to hit for Warlocks and Mages in ANY TREE. That would solve this debacle.
Spirit = Dps and Heals...Too bad get over it QQ more etc....

No spirit bonus.
Ouch, were you born that stupid or did you get more dummier when you grew up? First off, spirit is as good for Balance druids, elemental shamans and shadow priests as for any healer out there. I play a balance druid, I'Ve ran a few heroics, most items I see are spirit+haste, spirit+mastery, spirit+crit, I bearly see freakin items with hit rating. Im almost full spirit geared as boomkin, I just reached hit cap. I doubt blizzard made this 1:1 spirit=hit talents for these 3 speccs for no reason. They wants Shadow priests, ele shammys and boomkins to get spirit gear for hit rating. Its like saying stamina is better for Druids than warriors cuz they get more hp when transformed into bear. LIES. Go read some patchnotes/Expack notes or something, or something about this game.
