It doesn't work the way it's supposed to work is what I meant. It still has an effect, it's just not the correct effect.
It works precisely the way it's supposed to work. I don't think you understand how it's supposed to work.
Well, from what the Blues said during Beta, the way Inner Focus was supposed to work with Spirit Shell
was to incorporate your Crit Chance as a pure throughput increase. If you had a 10% chance to crit, that would equate to a 15% increase in throughput (10% chance to get 100% more healing from the crit, and 50% of that crit as a shield). When you crit a heal, it a 220% increase (3.2 times as strong as a non-crit spell).
So a critical heal (or critical shield in this case) should be at least 3.2 times stronger than the non-crit version, depending on the size of your Divine Aegis. If your Greater Heal normally hits for 100,000, it will crit for 200,000 + 120,000 Divine Aegis = 320,000, assuming you have 0 mastery on gear. Your Spirit Shell should hit for 320,000 just to break even. Otherwise, there's no point in using them together.
