I am envious because I feel like no matter how much spirit I stack (feel free to look at me in the armory) I have some serious mana issues. This is what I usually do:
Lay down my jade serpent statue, blackout kick for serpent's zeal, then jab to 3 chi, channel soothing mists on a wounded player followed by an instant-cast enveloping mists to consume those 3 chi and begin building mana tea stacks. When things get crazy I use surging mists. I also try to use renewing mists and uplift when the raid is taking damage.
All of this, however, leaves me VERY EASILY low on mana only minutes into the raid boss fight. Not only do I go OOM fast, but I feel like other healers with similar or worse gear can easily pull ahead of me on the healing meters and I'm wondering if this is because I'm missing out on other useful stats due to the amount of spirit I've gemmed for.
Anyone, please help! I feel like a failure at mistweaver right now.
