Holy Priest Set Bonuses
(and Tires with Spikes)

Cassandri and Lathere would like to introduce Snakevenom, a golden Holy Priest. After a Vent discussion regarding the change to the healing Priest Tier 10 set bonuses he posted the following article on our guild forums. We thought it was too interesting not to share. This post is by Snakevenom.

Heavyweight Champion of Dalaran

News Flash: I’ve identified an emerging armor design trend. It’s not just about the giant, spiky, flaming shoulders anymore. It’s not about the helms you can’t actually see out of (ok, that’s still around in next season’s collection). It’s about the belt. Have you seen the belts in Trial of the Crusader and the belts being modeled with the Tier 10 gear?

Patch 3.2 Shadow Priest Gear
for the 25 man Raider

It’s always hard to get your head around what gear/upgrades are the smartest to make when a new bunch of gear is released in game. This list showcases the best items available to you – as a 25 man raiding priest – with a Hit/Haste/Crit option per slot.

Tier 8 vs Tier 9 Gear Comparison

Last night my guild ventured into the new raid – Trial of the Crusader keen to see how we matched up against the first encounter released – Northrend Beasts. This fight was surprisingly fun and we got the beasties down on the 4th (I think) attempt. With this dropped the first Trophy of the Crusade and the bidding war began! Cass & I are in a guild with an open bidding system where you can bid until you run out of DKP. This first Trophy went for 6.5k which is pretty high for what is effectively a tier token (You also need 45 Emblems of Triumph). Generally only weapons/trinkets make it above the 5k mark.

Resto Druid Tier 9: Malfurion’s Garb

I have been waiting in dread to see the alliance druid t9 gear but I will admit I’ve been pleasantly surprised! The female Night Elf looks pretty good in the full T9 set, I’m even OK with the beaky bird helm, and I’m quite excited about collecting it. Thank you MMO Champion for posting this!

Zabra-cadabra

Blizzard are talking about the next patch which contains a new raid. And a whole new Tier set. It just feels way too soon for me. Before I stick my head in the sand about this new raid I just had to look once at the Shadow Priest Tier 9. Just once to see what it looks like.
