Best priest weapon
Return to board index
What is the best for a healing priest, mace + off hand or staff?
Both have their advantages and disadvantages. There are at least a dozen threads of this exact topic throughout these forums as well. Please search next time.
In short though, Mace +OH = Higher Spell power, lower stats whereas Staff = Fantastic stats with less Spell Power.
In 3.1 there will be a legendary healer mace...
Last I checked the stats aren't out for it, but I'm betting it won't even be seen for at least 6 months to a year.
it actually depends on stats..and atm best mace+off is Maexnna's spawn (offhand) torch of holy fire (main hand) and as a staff, i would go with Damnation, forever... i dont find my self changing it with torch of holy fire for 2 reasons: i only gain spell power, loose many stats, and it has outlook :P plus if i wanted a holy fire torch i would go Holy o.o
well I think this staff choice is a matter of preference and spec. If you're Disco, then I think the
staff is better. But for Holy.... I think the
Spire of Sunset
Keep in mind, Blizzard will soon (or eventually) add in 2H staff enchants that will balance out the spell power differential between MOST (not all) 1H + OH Combinations vs Staves.
Classic. It changes forms for christ sake. Went and got it again to wear when I'm not raiding.
The best weapon is whatever you can get your hands on at the time. If a rad staff drops for you which is better than the mace+OH that you have, take it. Likewise, if you finally get a good mace+OH that beats the staff you're using, use them. Use whatever you'll get the most out of (whether it's stats or raw spellpower).
OscarDivine is right, there are Staff-specific enchants coming. I believe the better/more expensive one adds +81 spellpower.
coming soon to the two hands nearest you...
