[Invocation of the Dawn] Blessing or curse?

90 Pandaren Shaman
I've picked up this weapon from a roll a few weeks back, as I've had many debates over whether the weapon itself is a healing spec item. I'm wondering what the general consensus is on it.

For those of you who're unfamiliar with it:

Invocation of the Dawn
Item Level 522
Two-Hand Mace
+2338 Stamina
+1558 Intellect
+962 Critical Strike
+8925 Spell Power
+1085 Mastery

First thing you'll notice is that it's a two-handed mace, which limits it incedibly on who can actually use it. More importantly however, is that it has no spirit, which is a large detractor.

Should this weapon be included in bonus rolls?

Not having spirit doesn't mean it can't be useful to a healer. You don't require an infinite amount of regen.

Are there any DPS casters able to use 2H maces? It might just be ele shams.

I think it should be fair game between heals and dps.

That weapon is perfect for a boomkin.

Its a trash drop/shared loot. And it is awesome. Spirit is just a crutch.

It's a perfectly viable weapon if you are comfortable with your regen. It's not the perfect stats for a Resto Shaman IMO but it isn't bad. Plus now you can make a badass healing set transmog with some of the great 2 hand models. I saw a Holy Pally in LFR with it once and he looked just like a Ret Pally.

I hate mine because it's the only 2h thunderforged item I can get :(

Looks crazy funny though, like one of the acme hammers.

It'll be ok for when I go boomkin though.
