Healing gear update 5.11.08 and MP5 vs Spirit

I have had a number of drops in Kara lately, even though Maiden is still being a pain and keeping her two drops from me: [Mitts of the Treemender] or [Shard of the Virtuous]. I think at this point I need to change my strategy. I should stop bashing her and calling her a bee-yotch and start singing her praises. Maybe then she'll drop what I want. So Maiden, I loves you! You are sooo beautiful! And no, that high slit skirt doesn't make you look skanky! It shows you are a woman who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to show it!

Anyways. So when these Kara drops dropped, there were a couple of times when I wasn't sure if I should switch those in for some pvp items I had because the pvp items had good MP5. But this is when every good resto druid goes to the queen resto druid, Phaelia. You'll see her mana regeneration canculator here. Assuming I am always casting (within the 5 second rule), in a 10 minute fight, 1 innervate, cast frequency of 1.5 sec, and with intensity, my intellect and spirit stats tranlate 1 MP5 to approximately 2.3 Spirit. Damn. This made my decisions easier. Now I am holding onto my pvp gear and bringing it to Kara for certain fights where I may need the extra stam. I do really like how I look in my pvp gear now! The healing pvp gear is pretty good. If you don't hate pvp too much, its a great way to go into Kara with really good stats.

So here are the six pvp pieces I am holding onto, or for my soloing/daily questing gear:
Head: [Gladiator's Kodohide Helm]
Shoulders: [Gladiator's Kodohide Spaulders]
Hands: [Gladiator's Kodohide Gloves]
Waist: [Vindicator's Kodohide Belt]
Feet: [Vindicator's Kodohide Boots]
Neck: [Vindicator's Pendant of Salvation]

Now in terms of what I am wearing now, I did get exalted with SSO and have the necklace and trinket from them. I am finally glad to see my spirit so high. Oh and I did get a trinket from Opera... though from what I read online, its not that great for resto druids. Our HOTs won't trigger the proc. I may need to bring back my lower city prayerbook.

All stats unbuffed, no potions, no food, no scrolls, no nothing!
