[Two corrections – thank you, Chorius and Spot.]
As I warned, I’d be tweaking my spec. I’m looking at this one, but there are some issues. Specifically – and as you can see – I’ve got one point left to spend. I’m opening the floor for recommendations. Please include “why”.
Some remarks to prevent you wasting effort, then some discussion of my actual changes as possible influence.
No, I am not going shadow. Or holy. I’m still tweaking a Disc build.
Yes, it’s not ideal for raids. It is primarily intended for PVP-BG. If I like it and get comfortable, it’ll go to Arenas — probably with a couple more tweaks, but [shrug].
Specific changes already made. After both experience and thought, I agree with a couple of commenters but not quite to their degree. I actually got a little out of reflective shield. Thing is, it never interrupts since it reacts after the fact to damage. And it doesn’t discourage attacks. I’m also not certain it’s damaging ranged attackers, but that, given the first two points, is relatively insignificant. So, that’s five points removed.
I topped off both mental agility and martyrdom – good talents that have already given solid benefit, and I think the additions will give me more. And one in an odd place that solves a small problem – one holy fire. Rank 1 holy
fire [Nova] will cost me around 260 mana. If I pop it every 6 seconds or so I pretty much break even on mana. Which means if I even think a rogue might be around, pop goes the stealth. It won’t be perfect, but it’s one more point of frustration.
Again, that leaves one point. I’d considered, even, spirit tap.
Blackout is a slim possibility — I’ve gotten to where I through starshards every chance (zero mana, why not) so there’s always a chance it’ll proc 1 or 2 times per BG. [nevermind. I got confused and forgot Blackout requires shadow damage to proc.]
Seriously, I’m open for discussion. I’ll listen. Tomorrow evening, I’ll tweak.
