And so the experiment begins anew... :]

My first test run comes this Monday on our remaining normal mode encounters.

What's going on in this thread?
He's playing with a Crit/Mastery>Spirit>Haste build again.
Basically less capable of putting out as much HR's, but more capable of doing more healing with the HR's that do happen + everything else that gets casted. (I was totally on the lower-spirit bandwagon in t12 as a pally though I couldn't minimize spirit due to a lack of Sinestra trinket... on my pally)

Unlike Firelands, the synergy between Holy Radiance and Holy Shock/EF... I'm guessing it will be less dramatic. In Firelands, Holy Light did nearly (like 2/3rds) as much as Divine Light (after beacon), so getting extra spirit to get the 3x as much mana DL was over HL... just wasn't worth it. Now... I just don't think it'll be that good because HR not only does it's healing, but with 4pt14 it pretty much always gives you an effective daybreak and it gives a holy power. Basically, that mana cost difference buys you a much bigger increase than DL was over HL.

That being said... it should be interesting to see how it goes!

I'm considering doing a similar thing as a shaman. Shaman's are in the "firelands paladin" situation. Spending more mana to cast GHW/CH/HS over HW... provides minimal healing gains overall, so extra mana is mainly for the sake of intense tank healing. The only reason I have so much spirit is mana tide, I hate being a buff bot ):

I think I'll be sticking with it this tier. It did better than expected given my current itemization.

I was thinking about trying this with my shaman though people would hate me because it would kill MTT. Didn't feel all that mana starved but then again this week was just normal where damage isn't all that bad.

Do you have any tips for transitioning to this kind of playstyle?

Why would it kill MTT?

MTT is based off the shamans spirit IIRC, so if the shammy drops a ton of spirit for crit based regen mechanics then other healers wont benefit as much

So tried out this mastery crit build today and actually really enjoyed it. I basically used holy light instead of divine light most of the time and mana ended up feeling about the same as with spirit mastery. I will probably test it all this week and spend time to get more used to it before I make my judgement on it.
