    Elosius - Using a full crit based build due to reliance of critical procs for Holy. Take into account the alchemist flask of 11 Int, 10% Stamina Buff, 5 Stamina/Vers food + Enchanting Oils.

    Is there anything I could use to improve my character further besides Battleground Armor?

    Seems like an interesting build tbh. I don't know a whole lot about holy priest but I have a few suggestions that might help.

    So for your helm, I know it's max crit, but have you considered obtaining the 10 crit/8 vers version? The reason why I say is because your current helm only provides 17 secondary stats as opposed to 18.

    And also, maybe minor speed to boots? I know the 3 crit is because of your setup but minor speed seems too good to pass up when you're kiting a rogue or any type of melee really. And extra survivability for the squishiest healer in the bracket (clothie, lack of shield spam, etc) I think outweighs the 3 crit. Unless you're doing this for a more fun and unique type set.

    And lastly, there is a spellthread to pants that gives int/crit as well. https://www.wowhead.com/item=82445/greater-cerulean-spellthread I'm unsure about how much it scales to, but unless you're using the ones on your pants for more stam, I'd recommend taking a look.

    Thank you!
    Wasn’t aware on the helmet missing 1 Secondary stat, will work on getting that done ASAP.

    I think minor speed might be a wise option, I’ll give it a think.

    Regarding the leg enchant, I’ll look into that this evening.

    Good points made, thank you.

    It's cool, but I think you are gonna find that just stacking intelligence beats all. I tried crit on my Mage etc, losing +15 int from the rings/neck... +16 int from trinkets... and the difference from not using spell power goggles extreme plus really makes you do ALOT less damage/or in your case healing. The crits are cool, but at only 1.5x your huge numbers are actually less overall damage/healing than somebody stacking intelligence. It sucks cause I love the extreme builds like yours, but... it wont be as great... but, it will be good enough.

    I look forward to your in game reports of how you do!

    Update

    Changed my gear to a more intellect heavy setup, my HP is a bit lower however with buffs etc it does maximise to 2.35k.

    I want to float around 20% Crit which is a one in five chance of proccing a juicy heal / damage number.

    Holy as a whole provided very good CC variation.

    - Fear
    - Stun + Decent Damage
    - Grenades DONT stack on GCD on stun (9 Second Stun maximised - Good window to proc your heals)
    - Smite reduced cool down of Stun by 5 seconds per use
    - Holy fire prevents re-stealth and deals nice per second damage

    It’s decent.

    It’s very viable depending on being played properly.

    Gear wise Im after more BG items + Mechbuilder overalls with the correct scaling.

    “ If anyone has any mechbuilders for sale I will be prepared to pay 125k Gold on The Maelstrom EU “

    Please let me know if there’s anything else worth considering :)
