@Egregious Can you go into some depth about how to maximize the value of T2.5 - I'm not sure without looking into a throughput calculator how exactly it stacks up with a full +healing set (it looks like you give up ~200 healing and some crit by using the 5 pieces of 2.5 compared to individual pieces). Mostly looking to get a sense of where the throughput falls compared to other sets and how you'd go about maximizing the value - is the main issue just mana consumption so effective downranking and consumable use?
I did some math for this in the Shaman Discord. This is basically the breakdown:
I also just ran AQ BiS T2 3pc w/ +healing against AQ BiS T2.5 5pc + T2 3pc to sim the difference in raw healing, assuming chain casting, is good but not phenominal over a 60 second encounter.
In a 60 second encounter casting back to back Chain Heals:
T2.5 5pc w/ T2 3pc: 865 +healing, 9.24% crit (not simulated), 28 casts
CHr1 HPS = 996.78 | Raw = 58,604
CHr2 HPS = 1097.2 | Raw = 64, 512
CHr3 HPS = 1268.18 | Raw = 74,564
T2 3pc w/ +healing offpieces: 1057 +healing, 7.02% crit (not simulated), 24 casts
CHr1 HPS = 950.99 | Raw = 57,048
CHr2 HPS = 1035.34 | Raw = 62,111
CHr3 HPS = 1178.96 | Raw = 70,728
CHr1 HPS = 4.8% increase | Raw = 2.7% increase
CHr2 HPS = 6.0% increase | Raw = 3.9% increase
CHr3 HPS = 7.6% increase | Raw = 5.4% increase
