Or do you think primary stat will now be Mastery as paired with Spike procs, Blast procs and CoP (level 100 talent) that you'll be able to deal so much damage with instants while jumping about?
Or do you think crit will be more important now that intellect doesn't passively increase crit chance?
I played a bit of beta and I tried a few builds and IMO I found Int>Multistrike>crit>mastery to be the most fun.
I prioritized gear with multistrike over versatility and if none were available I'd go crit/mastery>Crit/haste>Mastery/Haste and the damage was unreal. But at the end of the day go with what feels comfortable to you.
Also thank you for making this guide and sharing tips/tricks. The leap of faith thing I never tried but it does sound amazing and I can't wait to try it out.
edit: i'm not the best spriest in the world but I do stream my own games to try and pick up on my mistakes and what not. Ill be doing plenty of arenas and if you want to pass by and take a peep at the stream once time comes ill post my twitch on here.
