Holy Paladin Gear BiS Pre-raid and Raid Lists for MoP (5.0)

Holy Paladin Gear BiS Pre-raid and Raid Lists for MoP (5.0)

One of things I do at every new expansion (or tier for that matter) is prepare a BiS list. In the case of a new expansion, I prepare several lists. God, I love lists.

First, I start with a pre-raiding list, this is the rep gear, crafting gear, and heroic dungeon gear. This is my “starting set” that I aim for, and also how I determine which dungeons I want to chain farm before our first raiding day. The second list is my BiS raiding list (with heroic raiding gear) and subsequent gear that will help me make it to the HC gear, the non-heroic gear.

I have been using a nice ‘ol google doc to save all sorts of gear I’ve found on MoP.wowhead.com database. However, to my delight, as I was building my list and doing some research – I found someone did all the work for me!

Full credit goes to Getsu’s Sanctuary, his initial post is the basis for my very own – and my dear friend The Cursed Healer. I have modified a few of my own preferred pieces based on our progression path as well.

Stat Weights

For my gear stats weight’s I based this on the following:

Intellect > Spirit   > Mastery > Haste  > Crit 

(based on this below post of weights)

  • 100 Mastery Rating: 0.00837 / (1+0.1995) = 0.00698, about 0.7% relative healing increase.
  • 100 Crit Rating: 0.005568 / (1+0.1535) = 0.0048, about 0.48% relative healing increase.
  • 100 Haste Rating: 0.0078 / (1+0.144) = 0.0068, about 0.68% relative hps increase.
  • 100 Spellpower: 100 / (10180 + 9000) = 0.0052, about 0.52% relative healing increase.

This is still subject to change as we’re still in beta. I think in the end, I’ll build 2 full pre-raid sets in the week I have before it hits, 1 for haste throughput and 1 for mastery.

How do you prepare for a new expansion and raiding?

    Great post Gina. I know it took some time and now I don’t have to dig it up myself, but much appreciated good stuff :)

    So the real question is, what do you spend VP on first? Personally, I think taking static Int and then spirit/mana procs/on-use on trinkets is the way to go – and then gemming full spirit.

    So, with VP, which rep do you grind first? Do you go for a trinket? Is it even worth looking at the DMF trinket (since you can save some VP)?

    I think trying to get more sockets it definitely the way to go, as you get double on secondary stats (i.e. spirit) which many times will work out better than a higher ilvl non-socketed piece.

    THe neck that you list like pre-raid bis is reward of a quest that appears only when you reach exalted with golden lotus…

  • Humypallyguy

    I haven’t had time to go through the loot tables. What would be the preferred off-hand in terms of 463 gear (Pre-raid in your terms).

  • Humypallyguy

    Apparently im a poor reader. ><

  • Aluutu

    One other thing you may have thought of but didn’t mention is the 12.5% soft cap for Haste. Mastery is only valued higher that Haste after that break point has been reached.(From what I can find on other sites such as Ask Mr. Robot and Max dps)

  • Scoli

    I was wondering how the Conquest pvp gear is rated because that 4 set bonus is so nice, and im finding that i may be better than the normal tier set for my play style. Of course ill be replacing when i get hc tier pieces. I’m currently using conquest shoulders chest and gloves, will be getting legs on 7th of november and wont be replacing those till like i said hc raid tier.
