Crackling Jade Lightning

Monk
Does this serve a purpose? Am I missing something with this skill?
This is the only ability that separates the cream of the crop monks.
As MW, in PvP, use it briefly on your opponent's next melee swing to knock them back. Disable beforehand for greater effect.

PvE, it's a smart heal through Eminence. Kinda like Healing Stream Totem
For WW it is a range chi-point builder. You know, if the AOE is intense enough that you don't want to be in it. Or you flat out cannot reach the mob. Is it great? No. But it is better than doing no damage at all, and you can spend it the chi it generates on spinning fire blossom, or save it for when the target comes back into range.

Also good for old content where you have air phases you would not otherwise be able to do as a melee.
It's really mostly a MW tool although it does act as a small peel in PvP for WW as well.

For MW it's actually significantly better than SoM. It does roughly the same total healing per mana excepted every tick is "double" intelligent aka every second you get 2 small heals distributed independently from each other through eminence and eminence(statue). If I recall there is still a very slight delay on statue making it possibly heal 2 targets if raids' almost all at 100% but theres little random dmg going out.
