Heal costs 5,000 mana.
I have 5,000 mp5 in combat.
I can cast 1 Heal every 5 seconds. Or 1 Greater Heal or PoH every 15 seconds.
This is fun!
You're taking GC's post out of context. He said that any gear without hit is healer gear when leveling. He said that healers and tanks shouldn't worry about itemization (so long as they're using useful stats--i.e. caster stats other than hit for healers) because normal dungeons won't be tuned for min-maxing.
Besides, he's not wrong. If Blizzard is so butthurt about him and others being snippy for dealing with such outrageous situations, maybe they could do a better job with testing these things themselves before we have to grind our teeth and then be genuinely afraid that these things may actually be "working as intended"? It's not his job to coddle, and he could be far more "smug" than this. At least it's constructive, unlike your post...
Sausage factory? I want some sausage. What kind of sausage do you have?
Note that I have about 10K spellpower and a little over 7K mana regen. When I think about it, 10K spellpower is what I had in epic 85 gear with about 6K mana regen. Taking into account the huge mana pool increase at 89 (250K versus my ~132K live at 85), this is quite troubling.
Like Tiriel, I cringe when I queue for Mogo'shan. I'm thinking that place is overtuned versus the gear we have. I can only cover so many player mistakes. (Yeah, I know. They need to get out of the fire and all that.)
That is exactly what it should be balanced around, healing in that gear when you have crap regen with crap quest gear. So you should be able to heal brewery in 333 gear that you get in Twilight Highlands because that's the previous step right? Without basically any enchants and anything really going for you.
If that's the case, which it is, obviously the dungeons are going to have to take a small step down in their difficulty scale.
This is a very good question. Having to swap specs every time you turn in a quest to game your rewards would be very cumbersome.
