Holy Mastery > Crit?
Return to board index
I was catching up on my elitist jerks reading and have seen people arguing that mastery is a better secondary stat for holy pallies. For me, this actually makes sense when thinking about it: Even though the shield provided doesn't prevent much damage, the amount it'll provide is rather static as opposed to be dependent on the RNG.
Has anyone else seen anything else along these lines (arguing one way or another)?

You have it right where the reason why this is just due to the "scalability" of Master vs Crit. Stacking on infinite amounts of Crit just means (nearly) all heals will critical but it is the same critical value which doesn't happen if we could stack on infinite amounts of Mastery.
Mastery's useless for pretty much anything but healing a tank directly with a .5 second gap from the end of one cast to the start of another.
It doesn't work with Beacon, HR, or PotI, which usually make up 40-50% of our healing. Further, it's absolutely useless on one-off AoEs. For example, Nef's crackles: you'll do HR if you have enough people close together (no mastery) then it's time to single target heal everyone up separately. That usually means several heals in a row on one person (no mastery because you keep overriding it), followed by a long period of those people not taking damage (no mastery because it expires). Meanwhile, this whole time you're healing your beacon tank up after the crackle (no mastery because of beacon not proccing shields).
Good points. I hadn't even really considered that the shield is nearly pointless on DPS since they shouldn't often be taking damage and the duration of the shield isn't long enough to likely be there when they do. Hopefully Blizz will make mastery a more useful stat in the future for us, but I'm not holding my breath.
Im my group's (10 man, nef on farm, progressing hc) tank healer and I have no use for mastery. Period.

Show me a recount of you healing Nef with 0 healing from IH and i'll believe you.
