Shaman Gearing

I despise the spellpower enhancement build purely out of principle and I'd be quite happy to be able to have all my slots filled with hit/mastery gear to make reforging simple. Looks like I won't be able to, but there is some oppourtunity to replace less optimal slots with the upcoming drops from Zul'Aman and Zul'Gurub.

Smite Levelling

With the new patch I decided to start levelling my priest again. After considering LFD and the new talents, I chose disc and have mapped out to level 31. After trying out the build in a few randoms I've found that there's no probelms at all with mana and I spend most of my time casting smite.

-Enlightenment +15% Int
-Meditation: 50% spirit regen in combat

Twin Disciplines 3: +6% damage/healing.
Mental Agility 3: 10% off mana for instant spells (PW:S, Renew)
Evangelism 2:  Smite and Penance 20% more damage; 30% off Mana.
Archangel: 3% Total mana returned and +3/6/9/12/15% healing when needed.
Free point (Improved PW:S)
Atonement 2: Heal while Smiting.

Glyph of Power Word: Shield or Penance
Glyph of Divine Accuracy: 100% hit for Smite

Smite: Cast to 5 stacks and maintain for DPS mode.
-Archangel: Consume Evangelism stacks for mana, healing boost or because it's going to drop anyways.
Penance: Use on cooldown and Evangelism has 5+ seconds remaining.

PW:S+Renew: Absorb 332 Heal 66 HoT 440/12sec before spellpower

Tooltip Bugged

So everyone's been crashing when trying to summon the Horseman this year. These two macros make the difference:

/p Prevent the mouse-over bug with these macros:
/p Hide Tooltips: /script GameTooltip.Temphide = function() GameTooltip:Hide() end; GameTooltip:SetScript("OnShow", GameTooltip.Temphide);

/p To Show Tooltips once done: /script GameTooltip:SetScript("OnShow", GameTooltip.Show);
