HS + CS + WoG

Duration = 1.5 + 2*(1.5/Haste)

Healing(4300sp) ~= 14550

HPM ~= 3.45

HS + CS + LoD

Duration = 1.5 + 2*(1.5/Haste)

Healing(4300sp) ~= 23181

HPM ~= 5.5

HS + HL + WoG (no HoPo generated form HL)

Duration = 2.5/Haste + 2*(1.5/haste)

Healing(4300sp) ~= 18333

HPM ~= 4.6

HS + HL + LoD

Duration = 2.5/Haste + 2*(1.5/haste)

Healing(4300sp) ~= 23371

HPM ~= 5.87

At this spellpower level, while CS would be a slight drop in HPM, it is also a gain in HPS. At my 4300 sp and 12% gear haste, using CS would be ~9.5% increased HPS for ~6.7% increase in HPM. Then factor in that Holy shock into Crusader strike allows at least 2.5s of melee time to proc SoI. Using the holy power on WoG will result in a net loss due to its weakness.

HS + DL + LoD

Duration = 2.5/Haste + 2*(1.5/haste)

Healing(4300sp) = 48,336 (Note that the other comparisons all can be used off beacon to gain +50%, only ~25,500 of this can be used off beacon)

HPM ~= 5.4

Going from HS + HL + LoD to using DL gains us ~89% HPS as the cost of 18% HPM, but you consider beacon, everything else gets +50.

Factoring Beacon:

HS:CS:2LoD = 10,100 HPS, 9.07 HPM

HS:HL:1LoD = 9200 HPS, 9.6 HPM

HS:DL:2LoD = 14,663 HPS, 6.9 HPM

HS:DL:1LoD = 14,340 HPS, 6.7 HPM

TL:DR, Crusader strike is viable for holy power generation
