Ahhhh. First time posters. Where would we be without you?
Hello there Elitist community Long time reader, first time poster etc.
First off I'm sorry if this was misposted, but this felt like the correct thread. I have recently been playing alot as resto again after I mainly switched to enhancement spec for WotLK raiding. With dualspec coming up in 3.1, I'd like to polish up on my healing since I will be backup healer for Ulduar. I did mostly play as resto throughout Kara -> Sunwell in TBC, so I should be dry behind the ears. My healing gear should be pretty good already, we have been farming all content since last year. Will post a chardev link of my resto setup, as wowarmory might show me in enhancement gear.
Gear and talents: Chardev - Restoration
As you can see, I have been focusing alot on haste gear, with some regen in mind. Old habit perhaps, but I understand that this hurts my +Crit and +SP. I try to keep it around 18% haste (roughly 600 rating), so if I can get my hands on Torch of Holy Fire from KT and Ring of Decaying Beauty from Sapphiron, I will be swapping my haste trinket for something with more healing output. I am mostly spamming chain heals as raidhealer if I'm resto in our 25man raids, and have never experienced any manaproblems in the current content. Havent really been raiding anything on the PTR's, so bit unsure how this will change for 3.1. Our raids are 99% of the times covered with all classbuffs.
Question is, am I really gimping myself with too much haste, or does it come down prefered playstyle? I feel the haste gives me more control for "healing the right person, at the right time", rather then just stacking alot of crit and spam chain heal for a higher healing output. My Riptide+LHW have saved more then one death because of its speed, Sartharion 3D both 25 and 10man comes to mind.
Any input is welcome and feel free to flame me for my terrible mistakes (Sorry for the wall-of-text)
