I have been away form Shaiya about 2 years. I came back and have the opportunity to completely redo my level 45 Orc stats. I can reassign all spell points and skill points.
I used to be a full WIS, which is great for parties. However, PVP sucks because I always get targetted and die quickly. And in dungeons, I often have to get escorted even with Evolution spell. In addition, some times when I play there just aren't enough people for a decent grouping, and full WIS Orcs have a hard time soloing.
So I have been thinking of doing a 50-50 REC/WIS Oracle, but not sure if it will give enough soloing benefit to offset the loss of healing power I will have when I do group.
In addition, I have little experience tanking (this 45 Orc was pretty much my only character when I used to play) and need help with spell selections if I do decide tank.
I have red the excellent ORC guide here by Elfstruck, and my first inclination is to go full WIS. But I wanted to here from the REC/WIS orcs on what potential benefits that build may offer and whether it fits my situation.
WIS recieved a nice boost for healing in ep5, so most orcs don't seem to need as much WIS for effective healing. I would definitely recommend a good amount of REC in your build, especially if you plan on PvPing a lot.
I personally built my 20-30 PvP orc full REC, linking safe 5/6 and wise6s in all my gear. I had decent survivability, and most of the time, adequate heals.
I also have a UM orc around your level that I used mostly for parties/dungeons. I found that, in PvE, even when soloing, I could sacrifice a bit of REC and add WIS to increase my heals. This orc's stats went 6rec/3wis, safe/wise 5s and duals in dread/legend gear. I'm able to survive the trek through a dungeon to catch up to my party, and can still heal effectively.
Last note: The newer 60+ gear (Dreamy Nascor, Scholar, etc) come with pretty nice WIS base stats, meaning you can err on the side of more REC and still come out with decent heals in endgame without having to fill your gear with wise lapis.
Hope this helps some
