Calling it an MP5 trinket completely ignores the +90 int which is there all the time.
It's like calling the forethought talisman a HoT trinket and ignoring the +111 sp.
I can understand why your paladin would gear as he is. If he's essentially solo healing you on sarth 3d, having more spell power for someone who is essentially always damaged is a fine thing. His heals are probably hitting for near full and he's geared well enough that sporting an extra 311 trinket sp in combat is perfect for the content he needs to be geared for.
I would suggest that most people aren't doing sarth 3D, are not solo healing (or almost solo healing) someone through it and don't have the same priorities in gear he does.
You don't like the trinket. I get it. Just recognize that you're focusing in on only the mana regenerative properties and completely ignoring that we're class built around int. +90 more is a pretty good thing even with zero proc.
Yes, 90 int is good. But with the lack of OTHER key requirements on our gear, it's lack luster.
It has it's uses. And it's sole purpose is to keep your mana pool up. 25 sp with 100 sp on proc is not really worth anything in the grand scheme of things.
Holy paladins are NOT "built around int." Our requirement is to keep people alive. You can't do that stacking "of intellect" gear, and getting pieces of gear that reflect this IMO is rather dumb.
Judge me if you wish. IDC.
Yes, mana is required to heal. But you can't heal for squat if you don't have the power to back it up.
Again.WHY GET AN MP5 TRINKET IF YOU END THE FIGHT WITH 30-50% MANA LEFT?
I call it as it is. If you seriously need to buff your gear with Greatness to stay afloat on your mana pool, you do NOT have the resources to buy or the necessity to have Greatness
It's not opinion. It's truth. There are more powerful trinkets. When you can spam heal the hardest fight with 22k UB mana pool, why would you want more? I know other paladins that stack SP/crit, have 19k UB MP and they don't go oom in 3D.
I'm being stubborn. Yes. I'm making a point. This is
a mp5 trinket. It has some other small benefits to it, but it is still, an over glorified mp5 trinket. The added other stats are minimal, and don't really warrant the use of the trinket.
Int stacking is a very good practice. To a point. You stack int on your gear because it already has the required stats you need for healing.
So, now, you can remove the Seized Beauty
and put an "of Intellect" green because int is better.
Do you get my point?
I would take any of the other trinkets over Greatness any day. They are worth more to a paladin, and should be treated as such.
P.S.- FoL is the smallest, yet most efficient heal in the game. You need the SP to boost it to be competitive with the rest of the small heals in size. Every paladin uses FoL along with the rest of the heals, so don't kid yourself.
I like 30k + mana w/ just kings and a trinket proc ><
This is a good example. It is Epeen value. "I have more MP than you." do you actually ever use DP?
