Resto.

Restoration stats.
First off doing some research on this spec, it turns out its like a brewmaster monk. Pick anything, play anyway. Ill give you some examples of playing as a resto
Spirit build
This build is more beneficial for 25mans and focuses on being a mana battery for the other healers taking advantage of the 200% spirit totem going raid wide. Building up as much spirit will help the other healers but sacrifices your personal healing quite a bit.
Intellect build
This is another primary build more beneficial for personal healing in other words 10mans. This build focuses on making your own healing as high as possable, at the cost of a good mana tide for the other healers. Though in 10mans if you help the other healers so much that they "save mana" i belive its better than the sprit build.
Now that we are done with the primary two builds we will need a 1-2 stat
Crit build
This is a secondary build making crit your primary secondary stat after int, Crit is a good thing if your raid is mostly over 50% hp or so. And turns bad compared when your raid goes down under 50%. This is kinda a more 'True healing' spec making sure that you keep your guild topped off if thats your state of healing.
Mastery build
Our mastery looks at the current health of the target(s) that you are gonna heal and the mastery effects your healing positively heres the math "Mastery bonus on heal = (1 – (% HP of Target/100)) x Maximum Mastery contribution". Thats basicly the mastery build so if over 50% mastery its better than the crit build 60% mastery 60% hp, 70% mastery 70% hp, and so on. 70% 70% or lower its better than the crit build.

Ill quote elitest jerks on this one
"Elemental focuses on Intellect gear, with any of Crit, Haste, Hit, Mastery or Spirit as secondary stats. A rough stat priority is:"
And here
"Crit/Haste/Mastery weights & priorities vary depending on glyphs & talents, so it's important to generate your own weights on a regular basis. Any basic suggestion such as this one can very easily be off for your particular circumstances. Some more detail on what circumstances can and will effect this and how will be in the Stats & Gearing sections of the guides."

Interesting post.

I lolled.

+1 for trolling, though.
