So I've finally gotten enough extra emblems to pick up my 245 trinket
. However, I don't know which of my other trinkets to replace.
Currently, I have:Darkmoon Card: Illusion
and Tears of the Vanquished
I'm leaning to replacing the Darkmoon Card. The decision, in my mind, that I'm making is:
100 spell power and about 5-10 mp5 on a 5-5.5 minute fight (Darkmoon Card)
92 Intellect (talents and Kings boost this), 18 spell power and about 55 mp5
I'm positive that the Talisman is better, but if some one could clarify please? I really doubt that 82 spell power is better than 92 intellect and 55 mp5, but I've been wrong before.
p.s. I can't say how much I owe the pally forums. You guys have helped me so much. Thanks much.

Unless you are seriously lacking on spell power for end game raiding (Say below 2200 unbuffed, but that's debatable), and whether or not you are having mana issues, I would keep Tears of the Vanquished
as your second trinket. There are better trinkets out there, but if nothing else is available to you, Tears is by no means a shabby trinket to have. It is a nice intellect bonus plus the mana regain procs quite often.
In fact, I'm using both Talisman of Resurgence AND Tears of the Vanquished for ToGC hard modes until I get some version of Solace of the Fallen
because the MP5 bonus is so damn good IMO. High intellect and mp5 are king for a holy paladin's longetivity. For regular modes, I use Eye of the Broodmother
for the spellpower since Flash of Light + Holy Shock is more useful.
Edit: I started to bang out some numbers about the differences between these trinkets, but it got so large that I'll just create a new thread. Stand by.
