Spirit vs. Crit
Our mana efficiency is improving, haste will be our best throughput stat.Stacking haste all the way,
12150 haste rating while in serpent stance sounds marvelous!
O really? you are like the first one I have heard to say this. especially with the nerf to the amount that RM jumps around the raid.
Originally, I intended to stack haste primarily for auto attacks with serpent's zeal, haven't had any mana issues since I decided to try it, considering our mana efficiency is improving in 5.1 even more haste should be good.
Soothing mists - 800 mana cheaper per second sound counteract the 10% increase on all spells. The increased chance for chi generation makes it even more mana efficient. I find that on certain fights I can store mana in my mana tea for later use, (will of the emperor, specifically)
That said we seem to be at different levels of progression, so my perspective may shift when I get more progressed.
It's probably due to my playstyle more than anything else, I also find that ending fights with 200k mana left is a bit wasteful.
In cataclysm I did play a disc priest that ended up reforging out of spirit during the dragon soul era.
Mana costs to consider :
RM on CD
Soothing mists - if channeling
Jab - for chi
Surging - nearly never, cause it's too expensive. If nothing "wrong" happens where we need to spam surging mists for healing, our mana efficiency is really good.
