In PvE, hit rating for ferals is something we don't necessarily need. Is this different in PvP, do we need to be hit capped? What about SpellPen, do ferals need to worry about spell pen?

yeah ur going to want to run with 5% hit and 195 spell pen which is just the cloak enchant and 3 blue gems. This is due to making sure you land your CC a missed clone can be the difference between victory and defeat.

Ok, I understand the need for hit rating, so our cc's don't miss, along with our attacks. So is spell pen used also so our cc's don't miss? Does it carry any other benefit, as far as damage goes?

Sorry for the questions, just trying to wrap my head around the idea of a physical based spec needing spell pen.

Spell Pen is so our CC doesn't get resisted. It's not going to increase damage in anyway; however, the first time your cyclone or roots miss and you see that resist fly up on your screen just as your healer dies, your going to wanna face palm.

I think the 195 spellpen is only for mages with their resist armor, and shamans if they put the resist totem down. To overcome Kings/MotW I think you only need ~100.

Very true, the only issue is that if you do try to become competitive in an arena setting theres no way to regem or enchant as you discover the comp of your team. If your main goal is to just run around TB eating people in all honesty I'd just run around in full PVP gear gemmed straight Agi.

Besides what team now in days doesn't heal with a Shaman, nerf em!!!

Good god so true. I had a 30 minute match with a rogue/shaman vs me/disc priest. Talk about a frustrating fight.

Just want to mention the mage armor in combination with the shamans resist totem which will give mages a total of 240 spellresistance.
But it would be a total waste to gem for that. Just finish the resist totem before you clone.
