What end tick are you speaking of? If you meant the 30% explosion, The flesh is weak rune does not remove that.
Also, I dislike lashing tail kick, doesn't give me enough bang for my spirit, not to mention the annoying knockback (except for that stun rune, which doesn't work on elites or bosses). I WANT the mobs to be packed closely together so sweeping wind can hit all of them.
Yes, exploding palm costs more spirit per application, but it lasts 9 seconds.
You are not wrong though, a well placed LTK would definitely yield an instant massive heal.
My point was that if you focus your dps on the target marked with palm, you do not have to wait till the last second for the heal. It will not be instant, but neither will you have to wait long.
The versatility of exploding palm : the flesh is weak is that it is useful in both group and solo play. I can imagine pissed off party members were I to perform a lashing tail kick and scatter mobs everywhere.
