With 25dmg and 2% haste is a good choice for dps casters... soon we will see complains about mages/etc rolling in this along healers!!!
Calculation for priests with all beneficial talents for spirit and blessing of kings:
+0.32% spell crit
+14 mana regen out of FSR
Got this last night. It was my first piece with haste. My GH went from 2.5 seconds to 2.45
I'd just like to add that as far as I know, this is the best necklace for damage spellcasters until the Kael'Thas one. I blame itemisation.
From a dps perspective, compare to Prince's Adornment of Stolen Souls (
vs this item's
Although obviously a healer-first item, this appears to be a dps upgrade from Prince's necklace, at the expense of some survivability.
I as a Tree of Life druid would rather go for the Teeth of Gruul beucase of the mp5 and spirit. The amount of +healing gain from taking this neck isn't worth it over the mp5 and the spell haste is also alot worse then the mp5 boost. But I will take this neck for HT gear.
The real question is 7 more damage or 6 more haste? Compare this to:
You also lose 19 stam and gain 4 int/19 spirit going with the "healing" neck.
I'm a bit of a haste junkie on my mage, and while I want the caster neck, I already have this one, and am quite pleased with having more haste.
Best amulet in the game for shadowpriests since 2.4 spellhaste buff. Second best will be the mentioned:
This neck becomes the best neck in the game for Priests (and probably druids) when 2.4 hits. It's only lack is stam, which if you get enough T6 and have trashed all other gear with low stam, this will be well worth it. Here are the stats with 2.4
Intel - 24
Spirit - 19
Haste - 2.09%
Mana Regen (Out/In FSR) - 22/7
+Healing - 80
This is also very much a viable dps caster item.
As a resto shaman, I find this neck very nice. Yeah, spirit is useless to shammies, but haste is totally awesome. Got this yesterday and replaced my SSO pendant :)
If you're a caster just get any of the PvP haste necks, if you think this is your next upgrade.
Will be OP after 3.0.2, beating the neck off Twins if you don't need the hit.
I don't understand why it has so much Spellpower and Haste compared to
which is a higher ilvl too.
best neck for mage if you're hit capped (except the JC-only neck)
I won the roll on this, and then bought
Guardian's Pendant of Conquest
(because shammies need crit now o.O) and i cant decide. i already have a crap load of haste, but more is always welcome. I have a crit gem in there, but will be changing it to a
i pose a question, which one is better?
