Holy Paladin BFA - Stat priority issue


#1

Could someone please explain the stat priority using AMR for Holy Paladin. Wowhead, Icy veins and many other pages all say that next to Int, Crit is a high priority. However in AMR right now its telling me that crit is my lowest priority even when I change talents around. I’m currently at 12.5% crit.

How to I make AMR prioritize Crit.

We’re pumping out our adaptive gearing strategies this weekend. After that we can take a look.

In general our advice doesn’t match what the other folks say because we use a totally different method for our theorycraft. We do full on healing simulation that takes into account all the different interactions, so I think that our advice is very robust and from my experience it really works well in-game.

We will have a lot of additional information for healers coming to the site very soon.

Thank you for the quick reply.

I look forward to updates coming in the future. I totally trust AMR when it comes to dps numbers. I just get confused as to how AMR treats healing. I appreciate you looking into Holy Healing. I just want to make my toon as good as possible to help my friends and guild progress through content to the best of my capabilities.

I genuinely appreciate the effort you guys put in to make our gearing progression simple to understand. so we can spend more time enjoying the game and not spending half our life siming.

I’m also having an issue with Holy Paladin stat priority. But it only started recently. A few days ago I was still seeing Crit as a top stat. Now suddenly it doesn’t have any value at all. Even if I look at different item levels in the stat graph, Crit is always at a very low value at the right side of the graph. Something did definitely change recently. I’m 100% sure of that since I exported Pawn stat weights a few days ago and those show Crit at the highest value after Intellect.

So, I did a quick look… and the gearing strategy definitely doesn’t want a lot of Crit. I tried doing some simulations and swapping stats around for more crit… and I didn’t see significantly better results. The “extra” thing that crit does for you is give more Infusion of Light procs… which is good, but, I don’t see it being so good that it out-performs other stats significantly. Maybe that is counter-intuitive, not sure.

If you add 1000 crit rating and then take that out of other stats… you will get like 3 more Infusion of Light procs in a 150sec fight. I think maybe that extra value to crit is being a bit over-stated?

I made some tweaks to the rotation that make sure not to waste any infusion of light procs, so we’ll see how the new gearing strategies shake out. Could bump up its value slightly.
