Overall I agree with you on the major ideas but there are some things that really strike me as strange and maybe its just how I read it.
It’s suppose to cast enveloping mists if the tooltip is to be believed meaning it should leave a hot that increase our healing.
If you had a button that was on average 3.75% hps increase would you press it or no? Even without the bug you’d still 100% hit it, would it feel good? No. But you’d still hit it.
I agree with this a lot but personally I believe it would have to be some flavor of reduced vivify cleave or that could get out of hand WAY too quickly and could easily be used as an aoe cooldown or with Uplifting Mists (formerly known as Extended life) you could use it as a tank cooldown since the hits are just vivify. Just cast rem on tank, throw Bonedust brew on group now tank is getting more St healing than you could ever do.
I don’t think it needs to be constant in terms of damage as that isn’t like healing where its you either person dies or lives. I’d rather see the numbers go up a bit maybe 40% chance and 50% of source making it a 20% damage increase.
I think you’re under estimating the power of faeline stomp when they fix the who gets healed bug. As long as you hit at least 9 total people you are doing the same healing as Essence Font for 0 mana. (since you get 9 bolts a gcd for essence font until >100% haste)
I don’t think canceling your Essence Font channel is the play unless
- It allows you to hit more people
- You have to cast something else to save a person’s life directly
As Essence Font’s cooldown starts on start of channel, you just spent 7200 mana, and the hps/hpm/hpct from essence font is pretty good.
The amount it boosts mastery is actually very impactful right now as its a 45% boost to your mastery (as mw as a mastery scaling of 3 so 15 * 3 = 45) which is right now is doubling our mastery and allowing us to get good single target heals out on those tanks who never stacks. Another stat would be nice but in this instance mastery isn’t the end of the world… You just did a billion and a half raid healing you need to st those guys who were missed… cough tanks cough
At first I was in the same boat but the more and more they showed its really hard to just say a covenant has killed your hope in my opinion since there are many more systems at play. While yes Kyrian just does so much those other systems don’t matter when comparing Bonedust Brew, Fallen Order, and Faeline stomp you do need to factor in soulbinds and secondary abilities (which oddly enough all stink for mw).
Rework Mastery I don’t know another healer or spec for that matter where all your talents make mastery worse.
