I can't say that I'm very impressed with this as a holy pala option. Holy paladins have always been failed by the blacksmithing profession and this is no different. Now we have "divine plea" MP5 is even less useful then it was before. For the same reason intellect is the most important stat now and this has... none! The critical strike is welcome, but really I imagine this is a very poor choice overall.
If you are curious the total stats for the Brilliant Saronite 'set' is:
That's a lot of spell power and crit, but I think this is intended as a mix and match set. The lack of int would be crippling, unless you had some terrific rings, cape, etc.
The Brilliant Saronite 'set' is meant as starter gear for holy paladins. For example, if you levelled your paladin as retribution and you haven't picked up any healing gear while levelling. In that case, Brilliant Saronite is good to get your started on your healing gear, but don't expect it to last that long.
Does anyone think that the
Ornate Saronite set
is a more useful starter set, as it is available at level 78, the same level you get the last of the Brilliant stuff?
Latest updates has the full "set" of Brilliant Saronite giving us these total stats:
Armor - 10870
Stamina - 145
Intellect - 471
Spirit - 186
Crit - 254
A stark improvement over the stat bonuses (or lack thereof) that was previously found in this set. Not sure it makes it -good- Holy Paladin armor, but it's better armor than it used to be, from what I've read.
Plus, I like how it looks. >.>
And yes, I'm posting this on each piece.
