Superhero, you're barking up the wrong tree if you're trying to argue best practices with Mist and Suplift--they're two of the best MW monks in the world. Just step back from the keyboard and accept that you're wrong.
Next, there is absolutely no way that I could survive large scale damage without relying on Surging Mist. We're working on Lei Shen right now, trying to heal up 400k+ damage on 2-3 different people with just Uplift isn't possible after a static shock. How are you supposed to heal them up? I'm using Chi Burst. I'm using all my Chi. At the end of the day though, I don't have the time slowly get someone back up in health when we're getting hit with another 150-180k damage from bouncing balls or just other damage in general.
Static Shock hits approx 3 second after Bouncing Ball on the first transition of Lei Shen. I pretty much end up using up my Chi initially healing up the bouncing ball just so that we can survive the Static Shock. This leaves me with no Chi to heal up the 400k worth of damage from the static shock. So... how do I heal that? This is all independent of any adds that come in or damage from diffusion chain. I'm healing a quadrant by myself with a Shaman and a DK.
As of right now you're 12k spirit mw who unglyphed mana tea trying to argue with heroic raiding monks about what is best.
Add in a GCD on so many fights is easy to put in somewhere, while a longer 4-6s channel is not.
I put an enveloping mist on whoever the diffuse add is on. In regards to the situation you listed, you only need people to have enough health to survive the static shock going off. You have time to heal people up afterwards before more things happen. Healing spheres are great at healing static shock because three orbs will be consumed immediately and you can pump out another three for every surging mist you'd have been casting while still costing less mana.
You are able to solo soak static shock whenever it is on you, alleviating a lot of healing required and the shaman can be helping you heal as well. If you're really worried about the burst healing around bouncing bolts/static use Chi brew after your two uplifts. Hell, make sure the people on your platform are popping personal cooldowns during the second bouncing bolt since it's that close to static and likely will eat both.
Coming back to the static shock issue, again 22 deaths and probably 90% of those deaths were either our Elemental Shaman, DPS DK or Warlock. The rest of the raid has immunities that we use. Without fail though, when we get a static shock on any of these 3, the fights gets immeasurably harder.
If you want to keep berating my gear or calling me out for questioning something logical in a sea of elitist bigots, then these forums live up to their names of being completely worthless.
The issue is that at some point, their defensive cooldowns will be on cooldown and they'll have to take the full damage. Right now, we just don't have an answer for it and it's something that's wiping us.
I know you have more experience than me. I know that you've killed hard mode after hard mode. But I just don't see how these things are going to magically make my healing go up significantly. I've been healing since BC on a paladin, killed most of the hard modes in Ulduar and ICC, got the 50 attempts achievement in ToT, burned through probably half of the hard modes in all of Cata. I mean, I have experience. This expansion has been a test of exactly how much patience we have with our current raid group given our progress or lack thereof.
