Live - Lightwell sucks. It breaks on damage. Any damage. It's possible to use it, situationally, but you also have to rely on people to be smart about using it. Also, it has a 6 minute cooldown, and the well only lasts for 3 minutes.Maybe, in some fights, in some instances, sometimes, you could get some people, that might know when to click it, to make it efficient......myself, i'd just rather put a point into Holy Spec. I use my holy spells all the time (duh) so I'll Always use that extra 1% chance to crit.BUT IN BETA:Holy Crap, Lightwell FTW.Basically, while in live, the hot broke on Any damage, now in beta the hot breaks only when the dmg is equal to 30% of your health.Cooldown is now only 3 minutes. 4 lightwells per 10-min boss fight = delicious.Cast time reduced to .5 seconds from 1.5....that's fine, who cares, but thanks for the buff.Pretty much, the idea of lightwell, a 6 second hot that gives ridiculous HPS for amazing HMP, has always been good in Theory. Until now, though, it's been terrible in practice, because of the long cooldown, and terrible break-on-any-damage mechanic.Expect to see lots of glowy fountains of love in the expansion.
