Hello all, long time reader, yet admittedly reluctant poster, for numerous reasons.
However, I'm looking for some gearing/gemming/spec advice from the holy side of a priest.
I recently dinged 80, and just want to make sure that I have all of my facts straight before I go and make an idiot of myself. So first off, as recommended in Sinespe's post, I'll try to give you a little background on myself. I'm a college student, specifically an Aerospace undergrad. So as you might imagine, I don't have a TON of time for badge grinding and stuff.
Recently my friends and I made a new guild so we could all play together, with people we knew and trusted. We all re-rolled, and are just now getting to the point where we are even considering raiding. As I said earlier, I just hit 80 a few days ago, and have been working towards picking up some of the badge gear available through Emblems
. I'm following some recent advice and just trying to pick up as much of these purchases as possible. However seeing as I'm not well geared, I have been reluctant to actually heal heroics, and have instead been dps'ing them in order to pick up my upgrades. Here is where I become a little unsure:
- At what point, in terms of stats, would I be ready to actually heal these?
I understand that skill>>gear, however I'm just a little hesitant and would rather not mess up and look like an idiot in front of my guildies/friends. My second question is in regards to the future, and is more about me looking ahead.
- Approximately what gear level should I be at before we began raiding? I'm not sure what we'll start on, but I know we'll be taking it slow. All my guildmates know their classes well, and are taking time to gear correctly. As stated previously, I plan on raiding as holy.
Finally, I'd like a a quick overview on my overall spec/gemming/gear.Me
I'm quite aware that I am missing nearly all enchants, however since I re-rolled, I haven't had much gold and so I'm attempting to save the gold spent on enchants for pieces of gear I know I won't be replacing nearly every day. I also know I have a few +hit pieces, however they were still upgrades from previous pieces, so I took them until I could find something better.
Hopefully this was something similar to what Sinespe was looking/asking for. I really do appreciate the time put into these forums, as I find them very informative and helpful.
If anything needs clarification, please let me know.
Thanks in advance,

Sorry, I forgot to use the profiler instead of armory.
Anyways, I'm just shadow for now until I gather enough gear to start healing instead. I know that for shadow I need 289 hit rating to raid, however I plan on using that as my off spec, so until I can get comfortably geared in my holy spec, I won't be worrying about that.
But either way, the gear you see is the gear I have. As I said earlier, I don't have a ton of time, so as a result this is all the gear I have for now. I plan on replacing the +hit gear as soon as better alternatives drop. However until then, this is, unfortunately, what I have to work with.Profile
Again, I currently only have 1 set of gear.
