As far as I know all the opponents are equal lvl so the hit isn't going to help much you'll see that penetration (f.e. 20 on cloak) will benefit you more (also if you're a dranei you'll have a pasive 1% hit).

Spell pen and spell hit are two completely different things. 3% spell hit is optimal for pvp. Spell pen you probably don't need to exceed the 20 on cloak. Not too much has nature resist on.

I know that 3% is optimal but it's not going to come down to the 2% if you're a draenei (even if you're a non draenei if you purge in time it won't even be needed) and yes 20 spell pene on cloak is all that you need as a resto shaman or any other healing class for that mather.
As for the grounding totem I geus I find it useless sinds my setup is constantly on the move and I have to keep up with my totems aswell+even if I get pollyed my paladin can still dispell it, indeed absorbing a polly is nice and vital but that wouldn't mean that the 2 secs less cd is needed well atleast not in my case I geus that if you're running a non melee based setup (such as mage rogue shaman) it might prove to be vital.

Have you even played with 4 piece resto and the imp grounding? i didnt untill a few months ago and then i then i took it, 2 seconds is HUGE.

for myself im going to try

first, I think shieldblock will be better then dodge so you can block hamstring and gouge more often.
Also the 18% armor without the 5/5 tidal crit thing doesnt seem very good to me.

I'll go for this build, can't see why people are still picking Ancestral Knowledge, it's terribad and I avoid it as fire. Two Water Shield ticks will give you more mana than AK would -.-'.

I have 15% crit from gear which should be enought to keep up the 25% armor buff for majority of time while tanking Warriors/Rogues.

You have healing way and ancestral fortitude as well as imp ghost wolf, but why do you skip on the 30% to dispel. I dont undastand

Because honestly I don't see it being worth it, I don't even use ES against teams that can dispel and we do fine. Only exception is Rogue-Mage where resisting spellsteal on BL or ES would help alot, but it's moronic setup to fight so I won't even bother.

You do realize you can't block while casting right?

Sometimes you can due to lag, but the whole point of Shield Specc is to block Hamstring/Gouge/Imp Kick when you're running away or just simply to get 213dmg less from melee. It's bad but still better than AK.

First of all, if a rogue uses Imp Kick when you're not casting he's most likely retarded. And when he will Gouge, you'll most likely be casting. 5% dodge is just so much better in general, just because you can't block while casting.

You can block while strafing/moonwalking.

Limewire, I'm not talking about dodge vs block but about 5% mana vs block. I'd rather have block.

Pretty much what I'm planning on as well, with 1 more to nature's guidance from tidal mastery i suppose.

A full stack sunder brings me down to 8600ish armor.....the 25% ancestral healing throws it back up to NORMAL.

It's a good talent, I just never realized why people don't use it

Do you really think you're going to be able to drink freely enough to make up for not having mana tide?
