[Bug] Runic Corruption and DC as a heal

90 Draenei Death Knight
Looking at the tooltip of runic corruption (talent), I tried testing if casting death coil on my ghoul would still proc it, since there is nothing saying that it doesn't work when used in that manner.

After testing on a dummy with 50 death coils with zero procs as unholy, I'm beginning to wonder if it is intended, or if it is just a bug.

Thinking the talent could just be bugged (only tested 2/2, not 1/2), I switched specs to blood to see if runic empowerment also doesn't proc that way and received the exact results: 50 casts and zero procs (yes, I had runes cooling every time I cast death coil). I tried both using it on myself with Lichborne and on a ghoul minion.

Is it intended that a death coil used to heal cannot proc runic empowerment (which might be why it doesn't proc runic corruption), or is this a bug?

Anyone else with this same issue?

Additional note: tested with and without Glyph of Death's Embrace with the same results, since that's the primary reason for testing if the heal procced runic corruption.
