Is my math off, or does Contemplation of Chi-Ji return less mana than Soothing Talisman of the Shado-Pan Assault?
Contemplation of Chi-Ji gives 12423 mana over 15 seconds with a 1.5 minute cool down for 24846 mana over 3 minutes
Soothing Talisman of the Shado-Pan Assault gives 29850 mana instantly with a 3 minute cool down
8924 spirit (max upgrade level) is equal ~4200 mana returns every 5 secs. So 12.6k mana every 90 secs.
Soothing Talisman of the Shado-Pan Assault returns 32,118 at its max upgrade level @ 180 secs.
So, ~25.2k mana returns @ 180 sec compared to 32,118. You would also gain 204 intellect.
Isle items are considerably underbudget for their ilvl, which is intended given how easy they are to come by. The Shado-Pan and LFR ToT trinkets are likely to be ahead of the Isle trinkets, but they are still an ok option for alts who haven't got trinkets.
For the classes who have regen mechanics based on Spirit (such as Healing Tide Totem and now Innervate), you can macro the on-use of the Chi-Ji trinket with those for a small, additional boost.
Wrong. It's a temporary Spirit gain, and temporary on use/proc Spirit gains do not increase the Spirit based mana regen from MTT, Rapture, Innervate or Divine Plea. Only static Spirit (or permanent Spirit proc trinkets like DMC: Tsunami) scales those type of abilities up.
As far as the Chi Ji trinket, the extra INT makes up for the the reduced regen in a lot of cases. I also think that this trinket is better than heroic Lightning Imbued Chalice. The Lei Shen trinket's proc is really underwhelming, generally around a 1% output gain. The 1487 effective Spirit gain from Contemplation of Chi Ji lets you drop Spirit for a throughput stat, and 1487 more of a secondary stat will almost certainly give you more than a 1% output gain.
