Yeah, I just put this together and it comes out to 2767 resil. Sure, I get to blow shit up, but then I spend 45 secs in the graveyard.

why in the fuck would you ever gem 50 ints if you're going to abuse pve gear? 2700 resil is not viable even in 5s

Why in the fuck would you reply to a thread that you clearly have not read? This is in response to the (terrible, imo) idea of using 4pc PvE. Even if I filled every slot with +50 resils, the set is still only at 3417. Just trying to get an idea of what Hewty is thinking.

Hewty said he calculated it using double resil trinkets (+484 to whatever you have there), plus the legendary staff that can accept 3 more gems.. Its feasible to get up to almost 4k resil using 4 piece pve

Legendary staff is a resi loss, not gain. -MH(150ish)-OH(200ish)+3slots(x50=150)... Yeaaaa..Don't quite see how, my sets don't quite end up anywhere near 4k resi using all of that.

Mooncloth bonus is still better.

http://www.wowhead.c...rofile=33636384 - This is what i'll be running with new JC gems it is 3651 resil if you don't feel safe there you can ignore all socket bonuses and go with +50resil reaching an extra 275resil(3976)

Mooncloth bonus is still better.

Might want to try 4p before saying that.

Hmm, might be doable but I do honestly think that 3.6 won't be enough, esp considering RLS will rise to the top if it wasn't there already. Have fun getting tunneled.

I wasn't putting my personal opinion out there, I was just stating some resil numbers.

I am worried about running 3600-3900 resilience after the first 2 weeks of seeing what the arena environment was like. Teams like RLS, PHD, Ret/Hunter/X, Ret/DK/X, are gonna be ridiculously scary for any spriest. Not only will you be taking just a ton of damage in general from a cleave that knows what they're doing, but you will also lack the mooncloth bonus to help kite away, and will be reduced to properly time fades which is very underpar compared to the mobility of mooncloth/fade combined. Not to mention, against these cleaves, shadow orbs aren't as much of an issue because you are gaining them from being trained (talent).

If this was season 10, and every team you qued into was MLS, RLS, shadowplay, shadowcleave, RMP.. I'd say 4 piece would be the most amazing thing ever, but i'm a little worried that the MS buff and 10% melee AP buff, might've squandered that hope a little...

Yep, I share the same opinion of Deliriumx. I wanted to use 2pc before (was going to use all haste pieces, 3k haste in pvp gear), but now I'm happy with just legendary and cunning of the cruel after seeing how damage has scaled this season.

However I think 4pc t13 might be the best thing ever for 5s, and even if it's not the best option, at least it must be fun as hell. Spamming 3 orb spikes with fiend and wings up into a 3 orb 100% crit mind blast inside a smoke bomb... that's unhealable.

What do you plan on gemming with Staff/Cunning? was thinking resil in yellow and resil/int in red but even then we'll be 4600+ which seems a bit too much

Then again when melee start getting t2 weapons damage is going to be insane.

Edit: Did profiles for both int & resil gemming which came out as

Int gem(Int in red, int/res in yellow) - 4258resil
Resil gem(Resil/int in red, Resil in yellow) - 4658resil

I don't think 4600 is too much, specially when my weapon and trinket can do so much damage... so yeah, resil on yellow and resil/int on reds.

ughhhh my raid has 6 priests and conqueror never drops, I wish I could say "soon" but... :(

Used 4p + Heroic Cunning today in rbg's and people literally died in 2-3seconds each, at one point vs neilyos team which was decent I killed their Disc priest then Rshaman then Hunter all within the span of 6-7seconds.

Can't wait to be able to gem it full resilience and do arena.

It's insane that you already have 4p + best heroic trink 1 week into the season.. you are a very sexy dude. I'd love to watch a stream if you have one going at some point.

I'll get my 4p then we can do double shadow/rsham 3s, cross-dot targets, disarm both dps in place, and fiend at the same time.. sounds like a good time.

Sadly I don't have the internet to stream but when progression is over and I start doing arena again our shaman Nobadz will be streaming > http://www.twitch.tv/nobadzqt <

Actually really curious to see if this set up will make double healer Spriest viable(aligning Feind/AA burst with HoP or AM)
