Hi

Been doing a lot of reading on here and I have just 2 quick questions:

1) What stat priority (specifically haste) should one aim for? (ilvl 550)

It seems the haste cap point of aprox 17% then crit is popular, but then you get some (high rated) priests stacking haste for dayzzz...confusion reigns!

2) Which meta gem (head slot) should one go for?

Thanks for the help...much appreciated!!!

1) 7082 haste score, then crit seems like a solid choice as it allows more assist dps if needed in addition to healing power

2) Most priest are running Int + 3% critical, some are running with 1% spell reflect

I agree with Kelzanx, also If you're wondering why 7082 haste, it's for the extra renew tick :

Like above posters said, the extra renew tick is all the haste you need, rest crit.
Mastery provides a weak heal over time, which is not as desireable as the extra crit when damage is as bursty as it is, and as most of your healing comes from instant cast spells, stacking additional haste after reaching the haste cap is useless (you'd need 16k haste to reach the next unglyphed renew breakpoint, and 21k for the next glyphed breakpoint, which is just unrealistic).

As for meta gems, I am currently running with the crit and reflect meta. While it provides less healing output, it can be a gamechanger if you are lucky :)

Thanks for the responses :) mostly along the lines of what I was thinking...will do a little more reforging to get 100% right.

I have been using the conquest points gem - forget the stats...clearly not a popular choice! I'll look into changing :)

Reflect meta?  I've honestly never even thought about going that route or even know what the meta is.  The spell reflect, is that a full spell it'll reflect?  I feel it isn't as viable since it's rare I'm the kill target.  Then again, I'm so not as high mmr as you're in.  I agree with the the haste/crit.  I also recently replaced my battlemaster with the chance to proc intel trinket since when I void shift I'm always in Los to heal myself.

Reflect meta best meta.Reflected an opener poly which won me the game and a few other clutch spells.Lost like a 10-15k heal on my crits(since I was using the 3% critical effect),but the crit and the 1% reflect are defo worth.

The reason why it is so good is partly because you are rarely the kill target. This means that most spells that will go into you will be CC spells, and reflecting one of those can turn the game around completely. It's a bit lame to resort to RNG, but it works so I'm sticking to it ;)
(The meta in question is called Destructive Primal Diamond and provides 432 crit and 1% reflect)

Thanks Ottimer!!
Last night we won a game by a clutch spell reflect on cyclone!! haha.  I bet he was so pissed!!   Instantly felt the loss of healing output was worth it.  :)
- One happy Priest!-
