"Healer 4Piece Bonus -- Casting Power Word: Shield also grants you 250 spell power for 5 sec. "Why not make it the 15 seconds that the power word: shield's weakend soul debuff lasts for? 5 seconds is kind of 'meh'. I'd rather prefer to keep my PoM bounces one additional time than grabbing all 4 peices for a 5 second buff. 5 seconds? Man that's weak. 2 light heals(1.78 cast time /w 200ish haste I have) or 1 greater heal(3.68 sec). ...Woot? The only time I can see I might want this buff would be to cast an extra powerful PoM onto an mt and hopefully the PoM would stay with the +250 sp on its second, third, fourth, fifth bounce?I hope so... or else its really pointless to have this buff.

Your cast times are way off, a mistake I'm assuming. Flash heal is a base 1.5 second cast, Greater heal is 2.5 seconds (talented) I also think your shields should be absorbing more than 2.5k even as holy. I'd agree this isn't a great set bonus for holy, but for disc, this is pretty nice. Someone takes burst dmg, they now PW:S, penance, then FH/GH, all with extra healing from the spellpower boost. The 5 sec duration is low, but that's what borrowed time is for.I also find some of your calculations of what kind of dmg is getting handed out in raids to be off, eg. only getting hit for a small amounts when the OT isn't on top of adds. This isn't vanilla, raid dmg is everywhere, PW:S is useful.
