I don't know. Certainly more useful in raid situations; even in 5-man, assuming single healers, it's very limited use. It's an instant cast sure, but it still activates the GCD, meaning you've got ~8 seconds to make use of it, which means HoTs or instant cast heals unless the target has also activated some mitigating effect (Shield wall, bubble) to let you get off a massive heal. If not, by the time you cast this, wait out the GCD, and then get a large healing spell off, what ever caused you to cast it in the first place will have probably killed your target.I suppose the large heal in that case could bring him back up from 50%, but I think it's got very little use in anything less than a 10-man raid, or situations where you know you have burst damage coming in. And even there, it's only going to get you through one of those burst damage effects, or a few extra seconds.Drop the bonus healing to 10 or 20%, increase the duration to 20 or 30 seconds, and up the cooldown to 5 minutes to prevent raids from stacking enough priests to keep it up constantly, and I think you've got something. Or at least remove the GCD, like the Paladin judgment.
