I have been stalking forums secretly for a while by now but this will be my first participation. I got a question up, and I need your opinions.
I'm a HM Priest, a build based on heals, a healer. I have only used daggers until now since it provides faster spell casting. It actually did bug me at first too but I gave up on it after finding some good daggers for my level. Now that I have completed the 43 Epic quest, I got the elemental staff, which has "a bit fast" attack speed, and 42 WIS, which is perfect, for a healer.
The thing is, I'm not sure if I should change to staves again, and upgrade Staff Mastery. As my level advances, it's getting harder for me to find proper WIS Stat/OJ daggers, and the prices began to advance between the same stats of staff and dagger. So I was thinking if I should change, or not?
If I did open the Staff Mastery and used my epic elemental staff, since it also has "a bit fast" speed, plus the +1 speed mastery skill gives, it would be equal to having use of a dagger, plus an elemental and high amount of WIS for it's level.
And for the bad side, it has no slots available, after I pass beyond certain level, there will be best to it, and it will become useless. That is unless, if there's any other staff which has "a bit fast" attack-speed.
Currently what's equal to the quest staff is Facade Blade(Green). Which can have single base stat of maximally 42, plus OJs. It can even go past beyond it, however, such a one with WIS is sold for billions.
A level 35 greenie dagger, which I don't recall it's name, can have a single base stat of maximally 38, plus OJs. It goes around a billion at max for a WIS one.
So in conclusion, what to do? I will be leveling this toon to 70 and will keep it as a healer. So I do require faster casting, and can't give up on it. What should I do, I need your opinions, please.
