View Full Forums : Spell Power 3.0

10-15-2008, 10:56 AM
I am still a bit confused with the new itemization of spell power. When I compare my pally with my druid the spell vs healing is not making sense to me.

On my pally I have more healing power and dont see any talent that boosts the +healing ... and on my druid the spell and healing power are the same. I only got to heal a couple of AVs last night and didnt notice anything different, I was still at the top in healing but I respec to dreamstate just for fun till expac...

Anyone have any insight?

Another thing you have to consider is that even though the numbers maybe bigger/smaller, the spell coefficients have changed as well. So, you may have +600 heal on your druid and +1200 heal on your pally, but their effective healing maybe be identical (assuming similar level gear).

In short, it is now even more difficult to compare +heal and +spell between classes any more. Futhermore, you can't compare pre-3.0 +heal to 3.0 +heal due to the major coefficient changes.

Pretty much Spellpower is the only thing you need to concider. I can't remember the comparison, but I think its 1.88 or something.

At the moment, the Armory still lists Bonus Healing on my Character page.

Is there supposed to be a Bonus Spellpower stat somewhere? The only mention of it is on my gear.

Look close at the armory. Armory is messed up. When I looked at the talent page it had my old spec listed and didn't show the lvl 51 talents.

Let me re-phrase ...

On my druid I have 997 spell damage and 997 healing while in my pally I have 924 spell damage and 1225 healing... as I mentioned I dont see any talents boosting the + healing on the pally so my question is the healing output the same pre and post patch?

Post patch my druid had 2100 +heals and the pally had +1800 so just a bit confused on where the effect has been reworked.

I'm not entirely sure to be honest.

Ive found that there are still quite a few bugs with the new spell pwr stat sys. and the training system. the average person on our server is seeing about a 42% loss in number for spell pwr. But i haven't ran into differences due to class that don't relate to talents. This is a tough one. As for the trainers. ...i am restraining my self from going to visit blizzard employee's. I cant train any of the new skills. Wild growth doesn't even show up in my spellbook.

I heard 1.7 (i.e.: 1.7x the current spell power number should equal your old +heal). This worked out for me.

I did notice that in caster form my +spell and +heal were equal however in Tree my +heal was greater.

Tree has a bonus though that only affects healing. Its the spirit bonus so it buffs your healing but not spellpower in general. I'm sure this is meant to be a balance so you aren't specing deep into resto to get say +300 spellpower or something like that.
