Priests: value of Improved/Empowered Healing talents to you?
Posted 20 February 2007 - 11:44 AM
With the universally praised and admired Prayer of Mending now becoming the healing workhorse even on a single target, Empowered Healing (which happens to empower only GHeal and Flash) is also looking underwhelming.
Personally, I don't tend to include Empowered Healing in my spec even when I spec relatively deep into Holy.
But now I am starting to think that even Improved Healing might not be worth it, with the talent points better spent on Spell Warding for example.

I don't think you can compare gheal to prayer of mending because they're used in completely different situations. I do pretty much all of my healing in raids (and most of it in heroics) through gheal (usually rank 1-3 and rank 7, depending on the zone) with mending and renew used between casts for the next spike. PoM is a great ability in terms of efficiency in many situations but the way I look at it its far from a main healing spell. It works pretty well in easy 5 mans, but when the tank starts getting drilled it doesn't provide enough hps to sustain a group.
If you're going for a pure pve spec, it should include both improved healing and empowered healing if you ask me.

I can't imagine a priest not using gheal as at least a significant portion of their healing.

With greater heals thrown in here and there
But when I'm on a boss fight, my main heal is going to be greater heals on the tank.(With PoM and renews to keep up group). And boss fights are where mana concerns are a bigger issue. Thus Improved Healing is always valuable.
As for Empowered Healing, I probably won't seriously consider this talent until I have at least 1800-2000 +healing.
