Should you or should you not? How many pieces? 2? 4? Any chances for a mixed-gear set?
To develop a proper mindset and be able to answer these questions first sort out a notion in your head: do you like free stuff? Do you like getting free stuff just because you’re alive?
Everyone likes free stuff and so should you!
Where am I going with this?
The T10 set bonus of course, the 4 piece bonus to be more specific, and it’s importance to a proper discipline priest gameplay.
According to the 4xT10 tooltip:
Increases the effect of Power Word: Shield by 5% and Circle of Healing by 10%.
So once you get four pieces of armor which can be obtained simply by farming some EoF’s you receive a 5% boost of your main tool which is PW:S. What kind of a lunatic would want to drop such juicy shit? Especially that the T10 gear is the top tier gear in terms of raw stats as well.
There is literally not even one solid argument for even trying to play with non T10 gear as you would get rid of a sweet present Blizz gave you. And mind this, Blizz doesn’t give free presents every day : D
You should obviously aim at 4xT10,5. To make it more fun, after a whole run check your logs and see your activities. Without a doubt, on the healing chart, PW:S will be on top. As a shielder you might want to focus on buffing your main tools than goofing around with off set stuff.
Which pieces are a solid pick?
Shoulders: Sanctified Crimson Acolyte Shoulderpads
These offer a perfect blend of the most useful statistics and contribute to getting our 4p bonus.
The interchangeable pieces are mostly hands and legs.
