With the PVP Resilience change, what are you guys going to gem?

I know the damage is going down overall with the upcoming patch, but do you guys think resto shamans still need to gem resilience because we flop in a stun silence combo?

If not do you guys think we should gem spirit?


Cheers

Did a little bit of testing on the PTR with a premade:

First i gemmed as i do on live for resil (getting socket bonuses)
Ended up on 66.67% resil

Geming for Int (getting socket bonueses, keeping spirit the same)
65.65% resil

I essentially dropped 720 resil for 756 int (which is 720*1.05 from mail specialization).

The resil loss meant i took 3% more damage which means my heals are 3% weaker on myself.
The Int gain increased my healing by roughly 2.3% and gave me 0.3% extra crit.

In the end going resil gave me around;
0.5-0.8% extra effective healing on myself depending on the spell.
Slightly better "time to live" given the 3% extra damage reduction if i was getting bursted.
2.2-2.5% weaker heals on partners.

Int gave me:
0.5-0.8% less effective "self heals"
Slightly worse time to live based on current health remaining.
2.2-2.5% extra healing on partners depending on spell.

Conclusion:
The difference in self heals is very very minor.
The only question on the premade was would i rather have 3% extra health and 0.5-0.8% extra healing on myself or a bit more healing on partners.
Either way it's close all round and hugely dependant on how much you're getting trained.

As for wednesday - Im going to keep the resil gems in to begin with play a few games, if i need a boost in output for my partners i'll switch to Int and just accept i'm slightly squishier in swaps.

Or ofc if i find that i'm coping with pressure but eventually ooming, i'll ponder going spirit :>

I'm curious, is PvP Power overall better then Int? If so, it may be worth gemming PvP Power and Mastery over pure Intelect in in the yellow sockets. That way you match them, gain a little more Int from the bonus + the extra mastery. It's probably not even a huge difference but I'm just trying to work it out, last time I read PvP Power was supposably better but everyone is gemming full Int so again, just curious.
