Thats funny, I would say the opposite is true. Holy Nova
is more useful in Heroics as its a party
only spell. Or have I been reading that one wrong all along? If I'm in range to heal everyone (or most everyone) in my party, chances are I'm in a heroic.
I dont know about your raids but rarely in mine are the members of my party grouped up around me that close, we dont like having multiple people hit by Napalm Shells
or Frost Blasts
. In a lot of our raids I'm in a group with mostly healers anyway that can take care of themselves.
If your role is to be a MT healer, what the hell are you doing that close to a boss in a raid to have your tank in range of a Holy Nova? If you are healing the raid, and yes you can do that, why are you wasting a GCD on a weak AoE that will miss most of the targets you want to heal anyway becuase they are out of range?
As to the OP, I would drop Reflective Shield as its your own shield that reflects the damage and no one elses, Focused Will because as a healer you should not be getting hit and crit on anyway, and Improved Renew because without Empowered Renew deep in the Holy tree its a subpar spell to use talent points on. I would recommend Absolution (I do a lot of cleansing), Inspiration (your tanks always want more armor), and the last 3 points in either Spell Warding or Divine Fury (if you use Greater Heal alot get DF).
I personally I don't have Healing Focus but I do have a maxxed out Divine Fury. I've been debating moving those points to Spell Warding as I don't often use Greater Heal anymore.
