The greatest advantage I see with the T11 four set bonus is that it is a controllable proc. If used with Core of Ripeness - Item - World of Warcraft in conjunction with Mana Tide Totem (and possibly another trinket spirit proc) it is possible to net a very large amount of mana back during the course of a fight.
Using my own stats of 4027 int and 2151 spirit self buffed:
Normal combat regen - 2312
Non-MTT w/ T11 4set - 4052
Non-MTT w/ set and Core of Ripeness - 6124
Regen with mana tide - 8093
MTT w/ T11 bonus - 14188
MTT w/ T11 and Core of Ripness - 21434
MTT lasts 12s, 4set lasts 10s, and CoR lasts 20s.
As you can see, stacking spirit procs under the effects of Mana Tide Totem will net ~50k mana. On a side note, MTT is on a shorter cooldown than it was last expansion, meaning we can have a MTT up 2 times (per shaman) in a 5 minute fight.
im fairly certain MTT only takes in consideration Basespirit + spirit from items, not buffs or trinket procs.
