    Yeah holy. Wonder if that blue mace (or the tiragarde sound one) with a socket is better than a boe socket green on PTR atm.

    Do you know if https://www.wowhead.com/item=28311/revenger?bonus=6710 procs off judgement as holy? That's another option.

    socket is really weak for hpal because you get 2int/2haste or 2int/2vers, that's it.

    so if something offered 5 speed (on PTR), i would think that is better than a socket.

    My opinion for BiS maces (don't play hpally but what I've seen)
    1. https://www.wowhead.com/item=2243/hand-of-edward-the-odd?fromClassic&bonus=6661
    2. BoE with perfect stats and socket
    3. BfA Rare with socket
    4. https://www.wowhead.com/item=31304/the-essence-focuser?bonus=6659

    3 and 4 might swap, depends which gives more total effective health/your play style.

    Or 6 stamina 4 armor.

    inb4 stamina stacking is bad

    6 stamina > 2 vers all day in terms of total health.

    That's one of the apexis rares that were dropping ilvl 44 loot right at prepatch or launch, every one but the ilvl 44 staff rare has been fixed in some way. I dont think you can equip his drop even if you get it now, but not 100% on that.

    Yeah I saw that. With a https://www.wowhead.com/item=1168/skullflame-shield?bonus=6661 would be god tier imo. I know you can farm the shield with a lvl 17-18 but does the mace even drop outside of raids (which we can't enter). Maybe a eternium lock box?

    Probably should have mentioned earlier that I want a purely offensive hpal. Want to see it's max damage. Even using avenging light.

    Not a bad idea. Does the warforge actually add stats though?

    It'll be an epic proc, 1 ilvl to 26 (unless the ptr changed that).

    From everything posted here it looks like the green BoE are your best bet, factoring all the variables and aggravation.

    ok can link some pictures of the 2-h mace and 2-h staff in a bit. you can look at the numbers and take an educated guess. cuz i don't know for sure myself.

    Ya prolly. Otherwise I'll never actually get inside a BG

    So maybe +1 int and +1 secondary on the sword. The sword's base int is 19 on PTR so a warforge to 20 int would be cool. But if I don't care about speed / leech then farming up a socket green on a lvl 22 is probably better. Hpal is hard :<

    my feeling so far is that the 60's gear level helps. all 216+ gears? 1 warforge every 2 drops. 187? 1 warforge every 5 drops.

    i mean, most likely completely unrelated though.

    Usually the epic upgrades will change 1 stat up 1 point, it's hard to predict which one. Could be main stat, usually isnt.

    Things with large values (like haste procs) can go up a few points from ilvl 25 to 26.

    i prob end up going for speed instead of warforged+speed, not worth the effort.

    I rerolled alot of warriors untill i got mine with a socket. I hoped i could get the rares to proc epic but its not a big deal.

    As a feral i'd to for warforged/epic version as it gives bonus dmg and enchant bonus dmg for best results

    No.

    Hear me out, you can just be a player that's good enough to properly position and move without needing the extra speed, and sockets are very strong on a healer bc sp should be your main priority.

    For the record, this guy hasn't set foot in a single BG and is not a reliable source of information.

    Please stop talking like you have experience, it drives me up the wall.

    Yeah.... that was never accurate, it groups the apexis rares with normal rares... like I said, dont think normal WoD rares do anything but epic upgrade. That's literally hundreds of personal experiences over the last 3 expansions without disproof.

    That ilvl 44 staff is NOT a normal WoD rare. Dungeons can proc tertiary and/or epic but both is usually super-rare, IME.

    edit- when saying "normal WoD rares" I'm speaking of world rare drops and treasures, not including dungeon drops.
